H&M recently purchased some new mannequins for their stores that are sparking quite a bit of controversy.

Unlike the mannequins from the past, that were about a size 4 or 6. These mannequins are a size 12. They feature a little larger thigh area as well as a softer stomach.

Some women are saying that the models are giving a poor message to girls that they can be fuller figured and live an unhealthy lifestyle.

Others are saying that since the models are the size that the average women is, that the models give a more realistic image for women.

What do you think?
