This day and age I hardly expect average sized mannequins in stores when I’m shopping for my own clothing. It’s not fun, but I’ve learned to ignore them and happily shop away. In my opinion, it’s a fight for another day.
I absolutely, however, will draw the line at unhealthy and impossibly thin! I cannot let toothpick sized mannequins hang out in the middle of a women’s clothing section pretending to represent us.
This is why I ask you to check out this petition asking JCPenny to reconsider using these impossibly skinny mannequins to help sell their clothing to the average woman!
We learn what “normal” is by what we hear and see. While companies are ultimately free to advertise in whatever way they choose, I’m asking JCPenny’s to reconsider the message they are sending to their customers. We want our friends, daughters, and sisters to know that their normal body shapes are embraced when they are trying to have fun shopping for their new clothes.
