An American woman shopping at a department store in Florida was put off from continuing her shopping spree after seeing several mannequins she described as “shockingly thin.” She is asking J.C. Penney to reconsider their size and proportions.

“The legs on the mannequin were not just ‘super-skinny,’ they were extraordinarily, shockingly thin. So thin, that the mannequin’s leg was the same size as my arm! So thin, that it made me stop, take a picture, and discuss it with my family, and not one of us could figure out who these pants were for,” Dae Sheridan, a mother of two, wrote in a public letter to the retailer.
