The benefits of display mannequins
Mannequins are mainly used in stores to display clothes. A display mannequin is usually a full-size mannequin in the shape of a person. A display mannequin will normally include all parts of the human body, including the head and feet. Display mannequins can be made from a number of different materials, such as fiberglass, wood, plaster, or wax.
Almost all clothing stores have at least one display of mannequins. They are commonly found in store windows at the mall to display the latest fashions from the store. Display mannequins should be life-size so clothing will fit well on top. Most mannequins are full figures including the head, torso, arms, and legs, but some are just a torso. These types of display mannequins are perfect for saving space when modeling shirts and blouses. Full-size mannequins take up more space, but are more versatile because they can be used to display entire outfits, including hats, shirts, pants, and shoes.
Display mannequins are generally modeled after people who are in good physical shape. People are more likely to view clothing favorably if it shows flatteringly on the model’s physique.
A display mannequin can be made of various materials. Many are made of fiberglass. These mannequins are durable and easy to mass produce. Other mannequins are made of plaster. Plaster mannequins are easier to break than fiberglass models, but are still useful if handled correctly. Wooden mannequins are less common than plaster and fiberglass mannequins because they take longer to make. They were much more common before plastic manufacturing became popular. Wax mannequins are rarely used to display clothing for sale in stores, but are often found in museums.
Display mannequins are a great way for stores to display their clothing. Buyers have a good idea of what clothing will look like on a real person when they see it on a display mannequin.
