Nike becomes latest retailer to add plus-size mannequins
According to MarketWatch, Nike debuted curvy mannequins this week on the new women’s floor at its flagship store in London to showcase figures of all shapes and sizes.
The women’s floor in its Oxford Street store features a plus-size mannequin front and center dressed in a black sports bra and matching leggings with her hands stretching above her head.
In a statement, Nike said “Highlighting a full range of athlete figures, the space shows multiple plus-sized and para-sport mannequins, a first for the city’s store." The launch comes two years after Nike debuted a plus-size collection that includes sizes ranging from 1X to 3X.
