  • What is included with this dress form?
    +

    The Original Standard Dress Form comes with the fully pinnable torso (in the size you have chosen), a finial knob, pole and base.

  • What are the differences between the Original Standard and the Global Standard dress form series?
    +

    There are several important differences between our two series:

    • Measurements - both series use a different measurement system. The bust-to-hips ratio on the Original Series is more closely aligned (meaning that the hips measurement is very close to the bust measurement) to cover those with a straighter body. Our Global Standard series uses the Global Standard measurement chart and the bust-to-hips ratios are greater (where the hips are larger than the bust) to cover those with more curvier measurements. We also have more dress form sizes available in this latter series.
    • Torso Build - both series use a hard foam inner core to give the dress form its shape and allow it to retain this shape for a long period of time and throughout heavy use. This hard layer is fully pinnable - which is what makes our Fabulous Fit forms unique. Both series use an outer fabric cover - the Original Standard has a stretch cotton cover while the Global Standard employs durable canvas with industry grain lines (and has our logo/size printed). Both fabric choices are extremely durable. The Global Standard series adds a middle layer of soft foam (between the inner hard core and the outer canvas) for a more realistic body feel.
    • Shoulders vs. Arms - the Original Standard comes with two movable arms which can be pinned onto the form. The Global Standard comes with two shoulders which can be easily and securely connected or detached from the form using our specialized shoulder connector.
    • Finial/ Base Options - the Global Standard is designed to work with a wider range of bases and color options. The finials in this series are solid metal and match the color option of the base.
  • Changing measurements on the dress form via the Padding System
    +

    Changing measurements on the dress form is quite easily done through the optional addon Fabulous Fit Padding System. The padding system is series of specially body-contoured pads (17 in total) which you can add to the individual measurements of the form to increase some or all of its numbers. The kit also comes with a stretch cover which goes over the pads and the form to hold them in place. Many inches can easily be added through this system.

    The stretch covers come in four sizes. Each represents the size range you would like the form to be after the pads are added. For instance, if you would like to transform some/all of the measurments on a size 4 form to a size 6 or 8, you would need the size Medium kit (which covers a range of 6-10). The cover of the size Small (0-4) would be too tight to fit a dress form with pads added to a size 6 or 8 range. The size Large cover (12-16) would be too loose to properly hold the pads in place.

    The covers come in two color options - natural and black.

  • What about a size listed as out of stock or not listed at all?
    +

    We are contantly producing more of both series (Global and Original) so if anything runs out of stock, we should have it back up very soon. We are also in the process of creating additional sizes (for the Global Standard series). Please feel free to reach out to us at any time for updates.

  • Are there other choices/ accessories for the base?
    +

    Although the metal rolling bases offered with this form are the most popular and useful, we do have other base types which can be used (tabletop, flat square or tripod). We also carry pants and shoe display accessories for the Global Standard series. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about these.

    +

  • How and where to you ship?

It's Pinnable

COMPLETELY PINNABLE DRESS FORM! The natural crotch of the Half Leg Form allows you to see the changes that you’ll need to make in fitting pants…right there on your form. The dress form is lightweight and shoulders (non-collapsible) are shaped naturally to match your own with the shoulder shapes. As this form is built from a hard foam to be fully pinnable, the shoulders are not-collapsible but can be styled with the shoulder pads


How to measure

It's made for petites, very tall, and everyone in between. Please find the measurement chart above. We have also included some visual guides to measuring below. For more in depth details, please see our How to Measure" guide.

If the vertical measurements are more than 1 to 3 inches longer or shorter than the dress form we suggest our Studio Regular Dress Form (which has no butt!).

If your vertical measurements are less than 3 inches higher or lower than those on the dress form, the vertical measurements can easily be raised or lowered on the form. As you shape the dress form, horizontally, you'll be able to change the vertical position as well. The waistline on the dress form disappears when the Side Back Pads are placed along the side of the form at the waist, which straightens out the silhouette. The 14 contoured pads, (and 2 sets of "Filler Pads", 17 pads in total) address every body curve on your dress form to give your clothes a fabulous and comfortable fit!


How to pad

The Fitting System, included with your dress form, gives every area a realistic body shape, whether you are working with a daughter or a grandmother. The horizontal measurements can be increased up to 3 inches at any area with the contoured Back Hip, Thigh, and Upper Hip Pads; as well as the Stomach Pad, Side Back Pads, Bust Pads, Shoulder Pads and Filler Pads. The size of the dress form can be increased, even another size range with an additional Fitting System, placed right over the completely padded form.
