People have been marketing apparel with Mannequins
for centuries, but never like this! Small businesses and boutiques that couldn't afford to buy mannequins 20 years ago now have the ability to display their
apparel like the large department stores do; on mannequins and
dress forms. There is a difference in quality among mannequins, no doubt. Those that cost upwards of
$2,000 each are arguably more detailed than their less expensive counterparts, but even a cheap mannequin with funky proportions or fat wrists sells more clothing
than any hanger ever has. At Mannequin Store, we believe in quality
and price. We offer mannequins that have proper human proportions, both in length and girth,
and in quality materials. If you want a cheap mannequin that looks cheap, this is not the place to shop for your mannequins.
If you want mannequins for sale that are artfully sculpted,
hand-painted and overall very nice, we are your mannequin
A mannequin is an effective advertising tool. Research shows
that mannequins pay for themselves by increasing clothing sales. If
you sell apparel (anything from swimwear to outerwear,) the better it is
displayed, the better it will sell. For those of us who lack great imagination,
a mannequin offers a three-dimensional view of clothing - these
"silent salespeople" allow your customers to envision themselves
in the apparel displayed on the mannequins - and that sells
clothing. With current mannequins so reasonably priced, there's
no good reason not to buy mannequins!

Here are some basic points about mannequins.
Most mannequins are made of fiberglass, often with some plastic
content (you may see "FRP", or fiberglass reinforced plastic.)
Some are now also completely plastic, and will most often be
listed as such (usually PVC.)
Most mannequins come in 7 pieces: torso and head; hips and one
leg; second leg; arms; hands. They are easily assembled with
self-explanatory fittings; having them in pieces makes dressing
your mannequins much easier.
Unless they say otherwise, most mannequins' arms will move
zombie-style parallel to the body, but unless they are
articulated (jointed) or soft foam over a wire armature, they
are rigid, meaning that you can't bend an elbow or knee.
Standing mannequins require a base and rod to
stay upright. These are included free on MannequinStore, but
some sites offer them as an additional purchase. There are two types
of rods most often used in new mannequins - foot, and calf. The
foot rod extends directly into the bottom of one foot, and
requires a hole be made for shoes or boots to be worn. Calf rods
allow shoes to be worn without damage, but some people do not
like the look of the fitting hole in the back of the calf.
Most display mannequins are not of archival quality.

Whether you want a display mannequin for your department store,
boutique or museum, MannequinStore.com has the perfect mannequin
for you. We offer everything from male and female headless
mannequins, to egghead mannequins with no features, to realistic
mannequins sculpted and painted to look like real people. We
also carry adjustable mannequins, in sizes ranging from toddler to
adult female and male mannequins. These bendable manikins have wire
skeletons, which allow them to be posed in nearly any natural
(or even unnatural) pose you may desire. And for the tailors and
dressmakers among you, we also offer dressmaker forms and
full-body tailor forms.
Our customers find many uses for mannequins, including museum displays,
store window displays, haunted house props and as stand-ins for TV and film
shoots. Our flexible female mannequin is often used on CBS'
popular crime drama, "CSI:NY." Courtrooms and medical examiners
also use our forensic mannequins to study and illustrate how
victims' injuries occurred. Whether you need an adult male or
female mannequin or a mannequin child, our online mannequin
store has many options for you, from realistic or "European"
mannequins, to abstract mannequins, to faithfully reproduced
vintage mannequins and busts. We also offer anatomically correct
mannequin forms for panties and briefs - so artistically done
they could double as sculptures to display by themselves.

From one of our satisfied customers:
"This firm kept me up to date on our order which they stated could
not be fulfilled until this Fall, which I accepted. It arrived recently,
well packed and easy to assemble. It is a wonderful style for display
and well engineered. I would business with this firm again."
