Finally, after lusting away for years, today I ordered a professional dress form. I found it on Ebay at Dress Form Mannequin Factory Outlet,and while it’s not a Wolf (which would cost three times as much), the company that makes them gets high ratings for their service and the quality of the form. It has all the features I wanted: collapsible shoulders, a pinnable surface, a skirt cage and it’s height adjustable.
The company has a detailed size table posted with each form size, and I chose a RTW 10, because that size corresponds most closely with my measurements. I’ll pad it out for my lower body dimensions, which are closer to a RTW 12.
This company also sells the full body forms with legs that you see on Project Runway, and they have a “Make An Offer” feature in addition to “Buy It Now”.
Now I just need to think of a name for her….
