Alvanon Inc., New York City, reports its Intimate/Swim Form made using memory foam is 15-percent
softer than its standard soft mannequin and enables more realistic fitting of compression fabrics.
“Previous generations of mannequins were not as soft and did not accommodate the underwire
and bust fit very well,” said Ed Gribbin, president, Alvanon. “For that reason, designers could not
assess fit on a mannequin with a desired degree of accuracy.”
The new form may be used across the supply chain.
