Body fit solutions developer Alvanon Inc., New York City, has launched AlvaForm Studio — a garment
sizing and fit tool designed for small companies, designers, fashion students and garment makers.
Based on the company’s latest ASTM US Missy Standard generated from 3-D body scans of U.S.
consumers, the AlvaForm Studio technical fit mannequin features realistic human body shape, posture
and balance; and is suitable for pattern making, draping and fitting. Available in both dress and
torso form, the mannequin is made of soft memory foam wrapped in a stretch cotton weave. The forms
offer measurement lines for the chest, under the bust, high hip and low hip to help identify
critical measurement points for garment fit accuracy; and come with premium metal stands featuring
a counter-balance spring design, large wheels and foot locks.
AlvaForm now offers the tool in the United States and Canada, and plans to launch a European
shape equivalent later this year.
