Has anyone else noticed how big the nips on shop manequins are? Some of them are huge!

Ahh, Hugh Nipples. I remember him well, and his business partner Seymour Bungholes.

Didn't they work the famous scotsman, Phil McCavity?

He did a double act with Phil McCracken and Ben Dover

Oops huge...i meant. My spellings gone to pot lately!
They just seem ,i dunno, more pronounced and obviious.

I'm all for this as I am generously endowed in the nip department myself grin

I've noticed that the cheaper the shop, the more prominent the nipples.

i remember Miss Selfridge Mannequins used to have waist length curly red hair and nipples the same colour as their bodies.

I once told a friend that they give shop mannequins large nipples because one of the side effects of being pointed at meant you spent more.

She believed me! grin

Children are naturally drawn towards nipples where they not only receive food but also a sense of nurture, comfort and wellbeing. As adults we don't forget this behaviour which is why our attention is often drawn towards a perturbing nipple!

Conversely, marketeers could have discovered a link between a babies natural instincts and clothes shopping which are both associated with feelings of nurture, comfort and wellbeing?

Therefore, by adding larger nipples to mannequins, shops may hope to tap into our natural human behaviour of seeing an available nipple - whereby they hope as adults we will show increased interest in their clothes and ultimately make a purchase to satisfy our human need for nurture and comfort.

Or - it might just be that the workers at the plastic moulding factory are a bit pervy!
