Australia: Fashion retailer sizes up

Myer, Australia’s largest department store chain and Debenhams, the British department store, have decided to use larger mannequins over the next few years.

Myer has been testing customer acceptance of size 18 to 20 mannequins, up from the size 16 used before – but solely in its plus-size department for larger women in one shopping centre. It is reviewing the trial, with the move tipped to spread to other stores.
