  • 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.

It's Pinnable.

100% pinning is good. You can see exactly how your fabric will fall and how the pattern can be adjusted to match every curve of the body on your dress form before you even pick up the scissors. Planning and pinning and playing will save hours of frustration.

It's made for Everyone.

The Studio Forms are easily shaped to larger sizes with the optional Fitting System which includes extra pads and a cover that can be stretched right over your first shaped and padded body. Size 6 shaped to Size 8, for example, can now become a stronger 10 with a larger bust or a bubble butt. Extra covers are also available in black!

The optional Patented Fitting System is a great addon because we are almost positive that a standard dress form body shape does not exist in real people. Fitting clothes on a real body duplicate allows you to see the fit at each area without ever trying the clothes on. The Fitting System allows you to shape your form to match lots of bodies... from juniors to seniors... just by placing the pads higher or lower on your dress form to match the body curves at your vertical and horizontal measurements. Check out how to use the fitting system here.

The optional Bendable Arms pin-on at the shoulder and bend, for matching and testing elbow length and sleeve position. If your arms are shorter, or longer than the "standard" arm measurement, you can bend the elbow on the dress form arm to match your best vertical elbow position. When you try your clothes on the form, you will see if there is stress in the sleeve at the elbow and how to adjust the fabric for movement.
