I don't pay much attention to the mannequins, so either is fine with me.

I don't think they should be called normal size....I am a big girl....and yes they are the size of an average woman....but who determines what is NORMAL size? That's not right...so someone who eats healthy and is smaller than that is abnormal? I know I am overweight and I would LOVE to be that size...I just find it annoying that the media is calling them "normal" size....

"Average sized"

Most of the controversy with these mannequins is people who are saying that they are glamorizing obesity. I don't find those mannequins obese in the slightest.

I think they're the average sized as compared to the twig thin mannequins.

Only because I want to see how it fits on a normal sized person.
