Real-girl mannequins with flaws are hitting stores.

Fashion label Missguided debuted an array of real-girl mannequins last month featuring stretch marks, freckles and even the skin condition vitiligowhich causes patches of skin to lose their pigmentation.

Lord & Taylor and Saks Fifth Avenue have a rainbow of Afro- and natural-hair-sporting mannequins

And by the spring, Nordstrom is planning a full-scale overhaul of its mannequins, mixing robust size 12 and 16 models with the more “standard” 2s and 4s, as well as 8s.
