A shopping centre has taken the unusual step of replacing plastic mannequins with real-life models to help customers buy the right size clothing for loved ones. The human mannequins - which vary in shape and size - are designed to make sure shoppers buy perfect Christmas gifts and reduce the number of returns.
They advertise themselves in the centre's window display wearing gold onesies with their dress size, weight and height printed on it. Visitors to The Oracle shopping centre in Reading, Berks, can then choose the model who best matches their loved one, friend or family member.
Shoppers are able to walk around the centre with their mannequin, who acts as a visual aid while they buy presents this Christmas. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
