What is the shoulder width?
I love this dressform all except one thing....THE DIALS ARE WRONG! I chose this form because it would meet my size specifications and those of a friend, however it barely meets my specs and may not meet my friends because the actual measurements do not match what the dials say, making the maximum size smaller than advertised. I can remedy this by adding padding, but i am dissapointed that I have to do so. That said, for the price this is a great dress form that is lightweight and being adjustable makes it very convenient....

If you want something really high quality and durable you're going to have to spend a grand. However, this is decent for the price. It adjusts nicely, though I found the measurements to be just slightly off, so make sure after adjusting you check the measurements. It's pretty sturdy, but I wouldn't say unbreakable. The stand is a bit wobbly, but it wouldn't fall over unless you really pushed it. This is the first dress form I've used that is on the cheaper side, so I can't compare it to the other cheaper brands. For not having the money to spend on the type of dress form used in the fashion industry, I'm happy with this product, it serves it's purpose and I get what I need out of it. Some assembly required but it's fairly quick and easy. Petites are hard to find, and this works.Read More
Petite dress forms are hard to find so I'm glad I found this one. It is worth the price definitely though the stand is shaky and it tips over quite easily. Some assembly required but not a big deal and easy to do. Pins stay in and it is easy to adjust the waist/chest/hip to the right size. Overall, glad I got it.Read More
I had ordered a dressmaker's form from another company and after waiting for two months, with email after email telling me it was coming in shortly, my order was cancelled. I'm making the wedding dress for my son's fiancee who lives 3000 miles away and needed a dress form to ensure a proper fit. I checked Overstock.com just to see if they had anything (the petite size is hard to find). Not only did they have a dressmaker's form in the petite size I needed but they had the best quality brand at a terrific price. It was exactly as advertised, easy to set up, and easy to adjust to the precise measurements. I'm very happy with this purchase and the customer service I received from Overstock.com.Read More
This is the first dress form I have ever used although I have been a seamstress for a very long time. I needed it to make my daughter's wedding gown. It worked great! It was easily adjustable and was true to measurements. The only problem I had with it was it was a very tight fit putting the dress form on the pole stand at the top of the pole. I would definitely recommend this product. I wish I had gotten one of these sooner.Read More
I am pretty petite, but also curvy, so although you can adjust height, and width, the hip to neck ratio, and other increments are not easy to adjust. I have not yet used it for constructing a garment, so I hope that it is more convenient than messing with pre-fab patterns. I had to use the very smallest waist size, and the very widest hip size, but if I lose any weight, I'm not sure this will work for me. Does not account for wide shoulders. I will probably have to do some serious modification.Read More

Unfortunately, we do not have that measurement. It is adjustable, so that may be why we don''t have it.
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.
