What to wear for 3D scan

  • The scanner “reads” the surface whether its your skin or fabric of your clothes. It can not “see” under the clothes.
    Therefore to make your dress form as close to your body as possible it’s recommended that you wear only foundation garments or underwear that you normally wear under your home-sewn garments. For women – your regular bra and panties would be the best choice. The ideal outfit should not distort your body – it should not hang loose nor should it squeeze your body.  The scanning takes place in a curtained area. The scanning technician (female) will step out while you are getting ready for your privacy.
  • Try to avoid black (especially glossy) fabrics. Anything reflective (such as rhinestones, shiny metal links, etc) will make scanning more difficult.
  • You can bring several options with you if you are not sure which one would work best.
  • We will ask you to remove all the jewelry for the scan.
  • Your hair will need to be pulled up to make sure that your neck is visible from all sides. Even if you have neck-length hair we will need to lift it away from neck.
