    This is an interesting article, but there are a few errors in the English. At first, I thought the word mannequin was used figuratively for the thin bodies, but after reading it completely, I don’t think that’s your meaning. We use the term “model” for a person who models clothing for a living. A mannequin is a clothes dummy, a plastic or wooden human figure used to model clothes in stores. They aren’t interchangeable, but we might use the word “mannequin” figuratively to describe a person.
