Difference Industry Grade Dress Form v.s. Professional Dress Form
You see these terms "Professional" dress form throw around freely in the market, let me make it clear for everyone so you can make a sound decision when purchase a dress form!
1) Industry Grade Dress Form - the hip measurement must be at least 1.5'' larger than bust, this difference mark the standard of American Fashion Industry!
Most Professional Dress Forms in the market have the hip measurement and bust at only 1'' difference which makes a vast difference for pattern-maker & fashion designers.
2) Industry Grade dress form uses high density felt to hold pins steadily when draping and designing while most professional dress form use sponge or foam. Felt is a much prefer fabric as it's high density cushion the pins to allow pin-through motion while sponge & foam, pins tends to hang loosely.
3) PGM use 100% pure linen for industry grade dress forms while most professional dress forms use a mixture of cotton or other fabrics. Pure linen & durability goes hand in hand.
Same problem as the other I purchased as seller did not disclose the light base in hold of the heavy form. Difficult to design on and move without falling plus the cushion portion of form is not padded well so pins do not stick hold.
