The Skinny on New Male Mannequins

13 May

You’d probably never guess the day would come when someone felt the need to downsize mannequins….and male ones at that. British mannequin designer Roostein has decided to slim down the soon-to-be-launched plastic models:

Rootstein’s mister mannequin once boasted bulked-up proportions: He had a 42-inch chest and 33-inch waist in 1967, but they’ve been whittled down to a 35-inch chest and 22-inch waist circa 2010. The magazine suggests metrosexuality and the same unrealistic body-image issues that afflict many women are responsible.

I’m sorry, I don’t know if it’s a European thing, but I sure don’t want a man with a 22” waist – that means I can probably beat him up. And just when you thought that women dominated the unhealthy bodily image.
