I found out which company that produces the mannequins used by Åhléns (they’re called Hindsgaul). This page is not supposed to be a place for advertising different companies, but I wouldn’t mind letting retailers know where to purchase mannequins with a healthier body type. I am sure that there are several manufacturers out there who create “plus sized” mannequins. If you do, you are welcome to let me know. Perhaps I should create a list of manufacturers from around the world?
After talking to Hindsgaul, I know that the model used at Åhléns is a “+ size” mannequin and their largest model. The deliver mannequins to stores such as Åhléns, Junarose, Macy’s och Zizzi.
These are the approximate measurements for the “famous” mannequin:
|Chest 1||110 cm/43½”|
|Inside Leg||79 cm/31″|
|Shoe size||Cont. 38/UK 6/US 10½|
|Heel Height||7½ cm/3″|
