Women should have at least 17% of their weight as fat in order to have menarche and 22% in order to have regular cycles.' This fat contains easily mobilisable energy which provides nourishment during pregnancy and lactation. Mannequins that display clothes in fashion shops may influence women's perception of ideal weight. We investigated the changing shape of display figures over time and determined whether women of their size would have enough fat for menstruation.
