Quoting Krystal +2 Boys:" I don't think much of it, but I don't like the twig ones I mean why not make a normal size one not everybody ... [snip!] ... make one that is a normal size?? But eh we'll it gives people a example of what the cloths will look like on a bigger person"


"Normal" sized is overweight/obese.
The average size in the US for a woman is a 14. That's considered overweight/obese...
I weight 225 and wear a loose 16.

Quoting Jas ♥:" Offended? No. It looks ridiculous though. Probably because its head is so tiny. I''ve seen plus sized mannequins and they don't look anything like this."


Yeah, the head looks ridiculous..lol

Quoting Jas ♥:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Spencer Pratt:</b>" <blockquote><b>Quoting Andi+Andy=Marley+1:</b>" ... [snip!] ... his body, they didn't make his face realistic to his body."</blockquote> Plus sized and obese ate two different things."


I'm both...
I'm a 16 and obese. It's probably my body structure but eh. If going by BMI, I'm definitely obese.

Quoting Colt's mommy:" No, i don't think so. Plus sized is obese, bigger than that is morbidly obese. It's just an ugly word ... [snip!] ... don't like. Unless you mean that I'm plus sized because I wear size 9 pants, even though I'm at my correct BMI for my height."


A size 9 is not plus size.
12+ is considered as such.

Quoting Colt's mommy:" wait...I read your question wrong, lol.... The main argument that has any validity (imo) is children ... [snip!] ... and thinking that it's normal to be obese. There were some other comments, but being on FB, they were mostly asinine, lol."



Um...I'm sure they see obese people...
So does seeing the stick thin ones normalize anorexia? (not that I necessarily think they're anorexic, but they're far from average)

You're assuming that all obese people eat like that though...
