Our collection includes both male and female dress forms. You can also choose between child and adult sizes. With each model, you can choose your desired dress size for the exact measurements the clothing needs to fit whether it's shirts, pants, dresses, and more. Whatever garments you are designing, you can be sure that our professional dress forms will do the job. In case you need models of different sizes, you might like to take a look at our special adjustable dress forms which have dials in order to adjust the size by expanding and retracting the dress form. These are designed to accommodate various sizes. Those also come in both men and women styles.
Professional dress forms come in both full and partial body models. If you only need to fit the clothing at the shoulders, bust, waist, and hip, then a torso version should meet your needs. If you are looking to design pants, we have professional dress form leg models that are designed just for the lower half of the body and come in various hip sizes.
Many professional designers and tailors need to create garments which fit perfectly all along the length of the lower body especially the hip and legs - for example, pants, shorts, skirts, etc. To sew skirts and dresses with a stunning silhouette around the lower half, many professionals prefer to use full-bodied dress forms.
Another possibility is the torso model which includes a removable bottom extension. The extension is a cage in the shape of a female lower body. It provides the form which helps a tailor or designer to create skirts and dresses with the perfect lower silhouette. Many seamstresses like this version because they can remove the bottom extension when they are working on blouses or shirts while they can replace the cage when they are making skirts or dresses. That's so important when you want to get the garments just right.
Professional dress forms are usually attached on top of a rod with either wheels for mobility or a base for stability. Some of them are adjustable in height so that each seamstress can work comfortably at her level. These dress forms are designed with a lot of thought and care in mind.
A professional dress form mannequin is a helpful tool in any designer studio, tailor shop, showroom, or online store. These models are even used in retail stores as fashion mannequins too. I'm sure you've seen them in retail shops when you go shopping. They're not just good for designing and pattern-making, they're a special mannequin that are great for shopping as well.
