The Best Mannequin Torsos for Displays

Selling clothing items can be made more accessible with the use of mannequin torsos to display them. Mannequins are referred to as “the silent salespeople,” helping to sell products without uttering a word but by adding dimension to a garment. Mannequins are also helpful during the creation of clothing items; they help tailors envision how the fabric is draping and laying on a body as they construct the garment. Here are some great mannequin torso options for every business or tailor.

Purchasing a Mannequin Torso

Here’s what to know before you buy:

  • Style: Consider if you want a neutral mannequin or one that stands out. There are plain solid neutral colors as well as eye-catching patterned ones.
  • Size: Determine the size of the products you need to be displayed to pick an appropriate height/width.
  • Material: Mannequins are made out of various materials, so determine which is best for your display. Many are made from foam or hard plastic. If you are a tailor, you’ll want a foam one, or at the very least, a soft fabric cover over the mannequin so that you can pin clothing to it.
