An Introduction to Mannequins

Just about every clothing store uses mannequins. There are many types of mannequins made of different materials including wood, wax, fiberglass, and plastic. Some mannequins are set in one pose, while others have adjustable arms and legs. There are mannequins that look like men, women, and children. Some mannequins are even made to resemble famous movie stars and celebrities.

Mannequins were invented over 100 years ago. While mannequins are mostly used to display clothing, they have some other uses as well. Life-size dummies are used in car crash tests and other mannequins are used in CPR training classes. These types of mannequins make it possible for people to learn the effects that certain traumatic events could have on the human body without having to actually put anyone in harm's way.

There are many types of mannequins used to model clothing. The most common type is the life-size mannequin. These mannequins are the same size as a real person and have arms, legs, hands, feet, and a head. Most of them can be posed in different positions to give them a more lifelike look. They are used to model pants, shirts, dresses and shoes, as well as other types of clothing. These mannequins can look like males, females, or children. Other mannequins consist of only a torso on a stand. These can only display shirts and blouses, but are easier to maintain and take up less space than full-size mannequins.

Mannequins used to model clothing are usually made to resemble people who are physically fit in order to show a flattering picture of what people will look like in the clothes being modeled.

Mannequins serve several purposes. It is easy to take them for granted or not even notice them, but they are vital to the clothing industry as well as car safety tests and CPR classes.
