Choose a flexible mannequin for your store display and you will be delighted at the versatility of these shop supplies. These unique figures can be manipulated into various poses due to their clever make-up. At the core of each bendable mannequin is a skeleton wire body which can easily be twisted into your choice of position. This structure is covered to create polyurethane foam bodies that are soft but thick, to ensure durability. You can choose to have a flocked or plastic-coated finish, depending on your desired look.

Which mannequin? Foam or fibreglass?

Foam and fibreglass are both popular materials used in the production of mannequins, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Here are some key differences between foam and fiberglass mannequins:

Foam Mannequins:

  • Lightweight and easy to handle
  • Soft and pliable, which makes them ideal for posing and positioning
  • Can be relatively inexpensive compared to fibreglass mannequins
  • More prone to damage than fibreglass mannequins
  • Typically have a shorter lifespan than fibreglass mannequins

Fibreglass Mannequins:

  • Durable and long-lasting, with a lifespan of several years
  • Resistant to scratches, cracks, and other forms of damage
  • Heavy and difficult to move, which can make them less suitable for displays that require frequent changes
  • Can be more expensive than foam mannequins
  • Can be more difficult to pose and position due to their rigidity

When deciding between a foam or fibreglass mannequin, it's important to consider the intended use, the budget, and the level of durability required. Foam mannequins are often a good choice for businesses on a budget or those that require frequent display changes, while fiberglass mannequins are better suited for long-term use in high-traffic areas. Ultimately, the choice between foam and fiberglass mannequins will depend on the specific needs and priorities of the business or individual.

Why buy a flexible foam mannequin?

There are several reasons why someone might choose to buy a flexible mannequin, including:

  1. Versatility: Flexible mannequins are often made from materials such as foam or bendable plastic, which allows them to be posed in a variety of positions. This versatility can make them ideal for displaying clothing in a range of styles and settings, from casual wear to high-fashion outfits.
  2. Realistic display: Flexible mannequins can be posed in realistic positions that mimic the natural posture and movement of the human body. This can help customers visualize how the clothing will look and move on their own bodies, which can improve their purchasing decisions.
  3. Durability: Poseable mannequins are often made from materials that are durable and long-lasting, such as polyurethane foam. This means that they can withstand frequent handling and remain in good condition for an extended period of time.
  4. Cost-effective: In comparison to traditional mannequins, bendy mannequins can be more cost-effective. They are often less expensive to purchase and ship, and they are also lighter in weight, which can save on shipping costs.

Overall, flexible mannequins offer several advantages over traditional mannequins. They are versatile, realistic, durable, and cost-effective, which makes them an excellent choice for businesses looking to display their clothing in an eye-catching and effective way.
