Debenhams Body confidence mannequins

November 7th, 2013 5:00 pm

Debenhams has taken a huge step forward in promoting body confidence on the UK high street. They’ve become the first high-street retailer to introduce size 16 mannequins to its Oxford street store.

Trailed three years ago, Debenhams has made the decision to keep the size 16 mannequins as a permanent addition to its women’s fashion department, hoping to roll it out to all 170 UK stores.

We think it’s a step in the right direction, giving the UK average dress size is now a size 16. It gives the chance for women to preview what clothes will look like on a shape or size similar to themselves.

Pulp Fashion week was held in Paris France over the weekend on the 27th October. It seems that France is the latest country to embrace a  plus size fashion weekend and celebrate curves of all shapes and sizes. The event was organised by a Paris-based fashion group that celebrates larger women called Histoire de Courbes.  A variety of different sized models were used to walk the runway wearing items from various plus size designers, from couture to lingerie.
