Topshop's super skinny mannequins cause an uproar with customers

Topshop Stops Ordering Skinny Mannequins After One Facebook Complaint

Topshop is finding itself in hot water after a U.K. woman named Laura Berry called attention onto the company's super skinny mannequins.

Barry, who decided to go to the Brit retailer to treat herself to a new pair of jeans was shocked to see a mannequin she believed to be too thin. As she claims, Topshop's choice has showed a "lack of concern for a generation of extremely body conscious youth."

She quickly took to Facebook to express her concern for their poor display choice, stating:

The post quickly received thousands of likes, with hundreds of supporters chiming in, voicing their own disappointment.
Topshop quickly responded, saying that they would remove the mannequin from their store. The brand's comment, which can be found underneath the original posting, claims:

"We just wanted to send you another message and say thanks for getting in touch. We think it's important to showcase a healthy size image, from the choice of models used in campaigns, to the stories featured online and on the blog...We have taken yours and other customers' opinions and feedback on board and going forward we are not placing any further orders on this style of mannequin."
