( CNN) Nike has introduced so-called “plus-size” mannequinsat its flagship London store. They have been pictured in the shop wearing black crop tops and leggings, which has already prompted disgust from some who assert that their presence “celebrates obesity” and promotes a “dangerous lie.”

The average American girl is 5 foot 3.5 inches tall, and weighs 170.5 pounds. These dimensions are far more similar to the new, larger mannequins than those we usually see in shop windows. But we have grown used to the sight of “normal” mannequins in the same way we have with Barbie dolls and Disney princesses with waists narrower than their heads.
Female mannequins are typically 6 feet tall, with a 24 -inch waist, according to The Guardian. Research published in the Journal of Eating Disorders in 2017 showed that a real woman with the same proportions as a “normal” female mannequin would be emaciated. As a outcome, it’s likely she wouldn’t menstruate , and would risk developing osteoporosis, anemia, lessened immune function, and increased complications after surgery. On the other hand, male dummies — though they are much leaner than most men — do not tend to be “underweight.”
