just what I needed. I'm not a professional seamstress but love to sew. Instructions were easy to follow and I made the necessary adjustments to match my measurements easily.Read More
The locking pin that holds the two pieces of the pole broke just standing there. Don't undue the neck adjustment unless you absolutely have to. Getting it back together is like wrestling an octopus! The hem marker is nice, but if you're tall, mid calf is the best you do. All in all, I"m glad I purchased this!Read More
This dress form is exactly what I was expecting. It took me about 3o minutes to put together and figure out how to work the adjustment knobs. It is a little awkward to adjust for height, but once set, she does not need to move. I can now fit on my double instead of myself and since I sew for others, this allows me to also have a place to hang my own projects while I work on those for pay, so I do not lose track of pieces or projects on the table. I can also adjust this double to fit several different sizes and proportions to solve all kinds of fitting issues with patterns or making muslins or merely creating alterations for better fit for myself. I would have given her 5 stars, but with the bar in the center, she does not fit pants through the crotch. I can fit the waist and hips with the half-pattern and then sew the pieces together. I was not willing to pay an extra $300 for this convenience. For the money, My Double is doing perfect double duty.Read More

At last a dress form my sixe! My daughter and I are so happy.Read More
The problem with lower-end dress forms such as this is that they are ALL priced way beyond what they are worth because there's nothing else like them, and two or three companies have the market to themselves. It's supply and demand. So I can't write a review that says this dress form is worth more than $25 because none of them are in this price range! I gave it five stars because for what it is, it is the best, and it's not at fault (nor is Overstock) for the dressform market being so widely skewed. However, that said, this dressform is what it is supposed to be. I wanted a middle-aged shaped form, and this is it -- the bust is set lower than it would be for a younger or slimmer figure. I already knew the plastic dials and adjustments would be fiddly, so I've had no problems there just because I knew to be careful and not to expect too much. In addition, I've taken the extra steps of padding her out with cotton/poly batting to customize her to my figure and adding a layer of muslin under a lycra cover, so that along takes care of a number of issues: shedding little red hairs, pinning in the gaps, pinning in odd or hard to reach places, and the inability of the built in adjustments to really get close enough to my pear shape. The stand is metal and seems sturdy enough, and there's a hem marking thingy on it as well, so all in all I'm pleased with it. I'm glad I chose the one I did -- this is probably one of the better ones in the lower price ranges -- and of course the Overstock price was *fantastic* compared to, say, Joann's (plus free shipping!) so I'm really as happy as I'm going to be with it, and not disappointed. I'm only disappointed that they sell for as much as they do to begin with. Ah, well. If anyone wants to make a cover for theirs, be sure to google "how to make a cover for dress form" because there are lots of tutorials and instructions out there. When I first picked her up out of the box and plastic bag she came in -- and found my white t-shirt covered with little red hairs! -- I knew absolutely a cover was in her future. Plus, white's easier to work on visually as a background than red, so I'd have done it anyway. Don't be surprised if you end up doing the same thing. :)Read More

Good price for a product that we were looking for.
can you tell me if the bust measurements 45-43" are accurate? or is this a typo for 45-53" which would seem to make more sense? this would be a very important point for clarification. thank you
The accurate measurement are: Bust: 45-inch - 53-inch, Waist: 38-inch - 46-inch, Hips: 47-inch - 55-inch, Back Waist Length: 16-inch - 18-inch, Neck: 15-1/2-inch and Rotating dial wheels - Wheels turn easily with one hand. Adjustments can be made in precise increments. We apologize for any confusion we might have caused.
ARE THERE ADDITIONAL ATTACHMENTS THAT YOU CAN USE WITH THIS DRESS FORM? I.E. EXTRA PADDING IF NEEDED IN CERTAIN AREAS? I'VE READ YOU CAN BUY KITS THAT ATTACH WITH VELCRO, WOULD THAT WORK WITH THIS DRESS FORM?
I own this form. Yes, there are generic padding kits that can be used with this form. Search for "tailor supply companies" on the internet. Also, I took one of my bras and put it on the form and filled the cups, so that the form now has the proper bust size for my body.

Best Dresses for Petite Women
If you are petite, finding clothing that fits correctly is essential. Petite apparel prevents you from looking boxy or drowning in too much fabric and ensures a fit that flatters your body. Shopping for petite clothing will help you find the right sizes with all the fashionable options as other departments. The best dresses for petites are easy to find with a few simple guidelines. V-necks draw the eye up toward the face. V-necks are flattering for all types of women, since they show off the neck and encourage the appearance of a long, lean body. Petite dresses that have a V-neck also create a vertical line and give the impression that you are taller. Look for petite clothing that allows you to play with accessories and show them off. For an evening look, pair the V-neck with layers of necklaces to look glamorous. Find knee-length dresses to flatter your legs. As a petite woman, flowing long dresses may cause you to look smaller. When more leg is showing, you will appear taller. A flattering petite dress is hemmed at the knee or just above the knee. Pair a petite dress with heels and your legs will appear long and lean. Don't go much shorter than slightly above the knee, since it may be inappropriate for work or more elegant parties. Select petite apparel that hits at the right length and is flattering to your curves. Vertical designs will elongate your body. Look taller by finding dresses that have a vertical design. Dresses that have vertical stripes create the illusion that there is more length. On the other hand, dresses that have too many patterns or colors may cause petite women to appear smaller. A simple dress is flattering, whether it's one solid color or contains a subtle pattern. Petite women can use a wide belt at the waist in the same color as the dress. Using a belt in a different color may cause you to look shorter, in addition to cutting your appearance in half at the waist.
