I bet you could find them in one of those Erotic Superstores.

Re: Mannequins (Zurich)

I would try to contact the tailor shop here and they may have some, spare one and may be in good price. I tried that when I was in Hong Kong. If you buy from the shop who make it, it is costy. Unless you really want brand new one. cheers,

You are not talking about a living mannequin, are you?

Re: Mannequins (Zurich)

Hi BMW,
Am I right in thinking you're really looking for a tailor's dummy and not really a mannequin?

The former is a cloth covered torso/body form used by dressmakers for pattern making and draping (like the one in the link below) and the latter is the one on shop windows used to display already finished fashion.

Re: Mannequins (Zurich)

Hallo BMW,
I come across a mannequins at JUSK yesterday, the furniture shop in Baar opposite to McDonald, a black one without head, female body only on a nice stand. It costs CHF69.90.

Is that OK with you? You may come and have a look. Or anything I can help as I am near there.

Cheers,
money
