Is It COLD in Here?

Whilst out shopping with my family I began to notice a trend among the mannequins.

No, not that they were all a size 2 with double D breasts and should have back problems and arthritic knees.

I noticed how badly they needed a sweater.

Or band aids.

My reaction?

“Rock hard abs, just like me! Right hun?”

“Look at the headlights on that thing! It must be FREEZING in here, eh?”

“What size do you think those things are? The boobs not the nipples!”

“How many crunches do you think she does a day? Do you think she eats a low carb diet?”


His reaction?


“They almost looks real.”


“Wonder if they sell the mannequin.”

“OW! I was kidding!”


Guys? I’m over at Coffee Lovin’ Mom’s today! Come and visit me!

I’ll pour you a coffee (that I stole from Amy’s cupboard).

See you there!

    What image are we sending young children and teenagers! Especially the teens! They are going to see this and think its socially exceptable to wear no bra and starve themselfs for that body! I’m do glad that I would use this as a teaching tool with my 6 & 8 year old and make it clear how this is no ok! I’m so glad I teach my kids to embrase and love there body’s and shape the way it is! I can’t wait to see this out shopping so I can personally let managers know how disgusting it is and I will for sure email the companies!!!!!

    So funny – maybe I need to look at mannequins more carefully when I’m shopping. I never notice these things.

      YES! Sometimes I see the strangest things

    They need to model bras…

    For the record no one I know ever looks like that no matter how cold it is. Maybe in Alaska? Haha

      or if you’re boobs are about to explode because you’re breast feeding.

    Why on God’s green earth would anyone ever go through the trouble of putting nipples on a mannequin?

    • multitaskingmumma

      A man would!!

    “Wonder if they sell the mannequin” LOL That is so something my husband would say! I do wonder what they were thinking when they made that. I bet a man designed it.

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 15, 2012 | 10:19 pm

      I totally agree with you!
      A man made it!

    Wowsers. I’ve never seen them like that. Crazy stuff.

      When mine were like that I was breast feeding and they hurt like a sonofabitch. I certainly didn’t feel like jogging!

    Those things are ridiculous!

    Someone could lose an eye.

    Or a testicle, if they kept making pervy comments in earshot of their WIFE.

      As if I would let him bring a mannequin home.
      She has no arms, how will she help with laundry?

    I finally understand men now. Who knew it would take a dummy to turn me around!

      Go back to the other side Mark! GO BACK!

    You’re funny. It’s kind of a crazy mannequin design. What real woman walks around like that?

    • multitaskingmumma

      One with very FAKE boobs!

    Oh my gosh that is just unnecessary in my opinion. 🙂

      YES! That’s what I thought!!

    Here’s a funny story about nips. An old boss of mine had breast cancer, and chose a single mastectomy. The rebuilt breast will get a rebuilt “nip” – so one will perpetually be stickin out. The other? has to wait for a cold breeze to show it’s pride.

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 15, 2012 | 10:04 pm

      And are they the same size when both are “cold?”
      I have so many questions for her.

      • MommaKiss
        February 16, 2012 | 10:41 am

        when cold, yes. warm? not so much. it’s quite incredible, actually.

    why why why WHY Do they insist on adding plastic nipples? What function do they have? So you can see what your own nipple would look like in that sports bra? I do not get it.

  19. Kimberly

    Why are the nipples added??

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 15, 2012 | 10:03 pm

      You guess is as good as mine…
      I didn’t see any “buldges” on the male ones!

    This mostly reminded me of how long it’s been since I’ve been shopping. Not including Target, although I’ll have to check ours for freezing mannequins!

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 15, 2012 | 10:03 pm

      You should look closely at the Target boobies!
      We don’t have a Target here 🙁

    Hilarious! But, you know, I was wondering the same thing about mannequins in recent years!

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 15, 2012 | 10:00 pm

      It’s going to be uncomfortable when my daughter starts asking me why they look like that.

  22. Jessica
    February 15, 2012 | 10:29 pm

    Of course they sell the mannequin. It can sleep with him on the couch. 😉

    And here I’ve always tried to cover up my nipples! Whoever knew it could be the look of the moment? lol

    • multitaskingmumma
      February 18, 2012 | 7:26 pm

      Let them be free!
      Apparently it’s a fashion statement.

    I’ve never noticed nipples on a mannequin before (though you really couldn’t miss those). Now I’m going to have to pay attention.

      It’s becoming more of a trend.. I notice it everywhere.
