A photo was posted online of a scene at Swedish clothing line with two new mannequins that are a bit curvier and thicker that the mannequins we see every day.   When many women saw this photo on Women's Right News's online group page they rejoiced, and hoped these models would be displayed in stores.  It was rumored that the photo was taken at H&M, but a spokeswoman for the company has announced that H&M is not planning on using these mannequins, but won’t rule out the possibility of using them in the future.  These figures look like relatively thin women to most people, but are labeled as plus-sized. When designers try to use figures that aren’t cartoonishly thin, they are often met with anger, disgust, and controversy.  When will the clothing industry display models in more than the super thin size?  This incident continues to demonstrate the need for our society to accept all body types.
