Elements of a Functional Mannequin

Posted by on 1/6/2016

Any store owner, manager, or sales associate that has been asked to help dress mannequins knows how difficult it can be to get the job done. Sometimes, we don’t know how important functionality is until we’re trying to fit a dress over the body of a female mannequin that is not pose-able. Joslin Displays knows that your mannequins not only have to look great, but they can be adjusted to use around your store as you see fit, and for that we have a small checklist for you to keep in mind as you consider new mannequin styles.

It matches the shape and size of your target audience. If your business has a very specific target audience, such as gender or even size, you will find that you have to invest in mannequins that match those customers. Mannequins allow your consumer to easily picture themselves in your product, and this can influence them to investing in your merchandise when they can visualize!

It’s easy to dress. Dressing mannequins for a new season, holiday, or any other reason can be a daunting task for your employees because many mannequins were not created with retailers in mind. Can the arms, torso, and legs detach? Are you able to remove the head easily? These can make a world of a difference in frustration and time for your employees during the workday.

Their positioning can be adjusted. If your clothing store offers a number of different options, and you would like your mannequins to be versatile through these different movements, investing in pose-able mannequins can save you quite a bit in the long run! Instead of having 12 mannequins with stagnant poses, getting a two or three pose-able options will save you the money and space.

It can be moved. Stores are reconfigured all the time for clothes displays, and your mannequins shouldn’t be a burden. Not only can it be dangerous for someone to move a mannequin when it is heavy, it can just be a pain in the neck. You will find that a mannequin that can be moved easily will be well worth the money and will keep your back from aching.

Fortunately, when you work with a company like Joslin Displays, you’ll find we have a number of male and female mannequins that both look great and can be used practically in the workplace. Check out our inventory online or give us a call today at (800) 325-1030.
