Mannequins are an essential part to every clothing retail store, and thus, when any clothing retail expands their sales floor or decides to open a new store, they are forced to begin the hunt for a new battalion of mannequins, full size realistic mannequins, mannequin forms, child mannequins, and the like. There are a number of places to track down the right mannequins such as the Internet, mass production manufactures, and custom mannequin designers. There are even some used mannequin providers for those on a tight budget. Which place or business you decide to consider depends entirely upon the type of product you are looking for.
There are a few good websites that provide mannequins online. Some of these websites manufacture their own mannequins and some provide those designed and built by prestigious mannequin manufacturers. There are also websites that provide economy mannequin product in a separate section from their regular mannequin stock. These mannequins are still great for showing off clothes but are just a little lower in production quality (materials) and sometimes design. Some websites even sell used designer mannequins to keep those mannequins, still in working order, recycled. If you begin your mannequin search online, look for websites that provide pictures and descriptions so that you can be sure of the type of mannequin you are purchasing, and feel free to email the retail website contact with any questions you might have about the materials or design. This is especially important when considering used mannequins, however, it is also important to purchase used mannequins as quickly as possible. If you find the style you want, it may be gone tomorrow because this is not a manufacturer that has a certain number of this type of mannequin in stock. Think about ordering several mannequins at a time to cut down on shipping, if you can. This can also save you a bundle considering some mannequins require a sizeable box for shipping.
Mass produced mannequins are very popular and readily available, both online and direct from manufacturers. The best thing about these mannequins is that they will always be in stock and reliable. However, these mannequins are produced by the hundreds or even thousands and may often have a quite generic form. If you are looking for something unique to accommodate a somewhat unique sales environment, this may not be the solution for you and your store.
The mannequin providers at the opposite end of this spectrum create completely custom and unique mannequins every time. Though these are very high in quality, they are also quite expensive. You are paying for the artistic expression and craftsmanship of the maker. If you are considering selling designer clothing or apparel this might be a must, but for most retail environments, it is entirely up to the taste of the store display designer and the size of the budget.
Think about these different kinds of mannequin providers and scout out a few of them on your own to decide what it is you are looking for. The online sales world is growing rapidly, and some of the best providers with the largest inventories can be found on the Internet. Good luck finding the mannequins that will bring your store to life.
