Hot Topic: Mannequins - Worse than Size Zero Models?


Forget the clothes for a second. The mannequins at Hot Kiss scare the living daylights out of me. Check out the one on the end! Do you reckon they shoved a couple of water balloons up there for that Dolly Parton-esque chest? I'm all for emphasising a tiny waist, but you can go a bit too far, and these hardly represent the average body shape, do they? With all the stuff in the press at the moment about using healthy women instead of size zero models and advertising clothes as they'd look on 'normal' people, I can't help thinking using a bust with a handspan waist and Barbie boobs to model clothes for a website flogging clothes to young women is one big step backwards.
