It seems ManniquinI reached the magical 100+k figure (who would have thought it) before we could address the all important question of how to dress this lovely creature.
This issue came to mind this very morning when Terridarri asked if I knew what the typical (female) manniquin measurements are and what is an appropriate way to dress one.
Any suggestions?

Don't quote me on this terridarri, but I think that our girl is a size 6. I'll take her measurements when I pack her up tonight and post them for your information and amusement.

Cup Size?!? I wouldn't even know *how* to figure that out.

Wait a minute...I know. I'll go to the ladies department at Sears and ask for one bra in every size. I'll keep trying them on her until I find the one that fits, then return the rest.

Now... How am I going to explain this to my wife???

Any women out there to help Bluesman with this situation on how he can measure this poor little mannequin that almost just had one arm cup size?
We also need suggestions for names? The winner will get a special surprise if they come to the meet. LOL

Bluesman needs the hooter meter LMAO I wish I had that picture of the actual meter but I can't find it.

Terri what do you need the cup size for? LOL I doubt she will need anything to hold her up

What kind of clothes do you want for her? I have some old bigger clothes that I am giving to the vets, they are about 6 and 7's. I can't believe I am offering my old clothes to a manikin! LOL Are you going to paint her nails and put makeup on her? ROTF

Well. I guess I need to get over it if'n I'm gonna be helpful at all.

Don't know about no Hooter meter, but an Army dentist once told me a method that seems to be pretty good. At least it was fun!

Nope. Changed my mind. Still upset about Lefty so I ain't gonna tell ya what the dentist said.

So there!

I'm sorry Dennis your going to miss Ole Lefty, maybe you need to help us name her.

Terri,
FWIW just did some measuring on one of the manniquins that I've got tied up in the shed.
She seems to be 34-22-32, with what appears to be a B cup.
Had to hurry up - before my wife got home.
Hope this helps.

How about naming her Gertie....

Taken from Foxfires post on previous manniquin thread:

So Terri, did you ever get a mannequin?
I've got 3 females, but they're all in some sort of reclining position(s).
And of course, there are no metal rods either...
I have to tie them up (or down) to hold them in their place when I use them...


Now today:
FWIW just did some measuring on one of the manniquins that I've got tied up in the shed.
She seems to be 34-22-32, with what appears to be a B cup.
Had to hurry up - before my wife got home.
Hope this helps.


Now I don't know 'bout ya'll but I'm beginin' to wonder 'bout ol' Foxfire.

I'm ok, I really am
Besides, doesn't everyone have skeletons in their closet er... I mean manniquins in their sheds?
Now I must remember to tell the census worker about them next time.
They're like family...
I'm coming Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos - it's time to tuck you in for the night.
Pictures available upon request.
heh, heh, heh...

As for the dressing, we prefer thousand island, but French is ok...

Let me see if I got this straight.

Terri's gotta bald monkey.
Schmitt's gotta beaver mitt.
Bluesman's gotta fake girlfriend that falls to pieces.
Gunslinger wants to buy Bluesman's strange girl.
Foxfire's got 3 of these ladies hiding in his shed.
Dennis has one that's electric.
Sensop is in love with the electric lady.
All the ladies are nekkid and need clothes.
And you're using the dentist method to fit bras.

That's about it, right?

You know I believe in some parts of Europe this might actually be legal! But, I ain't so sure its gonna fly in Missouri.

You people are some of the most twisted, insane and perverted folks I've ever met!
I feel right at home. Its nice to know we have more than just guns in common.

August should be very interesting.

There are no "ladies" in my shed.
And they're not hiding; they just don't get out much anymore...
