Debenhams introduces size 16 mannequins

A major UK department store is introducing larger mannequins to its shop floors.

Mannequins are usually a size 8 or 10, but Debenhams will be using a new size 16 dummy to reflect the size of many of its customers.

Equality minister Jo Swinson said the move goes some way towards tackling the "important" issue of body-confidence that affects some women.
