Feedback at 5:00: Retailers Using More Realistic Mannequins

Posted: Updated:

From tattoos, to thicker waists, retailers are giving their mannequins makeovers in an effort to make them appear more realistic.

The move comes after stores had been using mainly basic torsos, or tall and thin mannequins to sell clothing.

The nation's largest bridal chain, David's Bridal, is one of the businesses making changes.

The gowns are going on mannequins to reflect a more average body type.

What do you think of the decision to use realistic mannequins?

It's tonight's Feedback at 5:00.
