Body Forms

Want To Make Your Own Body/Dress Form At Home?

This is something completely new ... a printable DIY body/dress form that you print, cut out and tape together ... then thicken up and harden the inside with paper mache.

It's certainly not an easy project as it can take some time and patience to complete, but where else are you going to get a pattern to make a body form at home? Below is a table of each body form I've made ... each has a name and meaning rather than a size. Each download contains a PDF file in A4 paper size and another in US Letter size, so you just choose which suits you.

Before you purchase, I recommend you take a look at the instructions on
How To Assemble Miyumi (the first body form) and How To Papier Mache Miyumi ... just to make sure it's something you can do! They aren't easy!

Each body form comes with 4 wire sizes of breast forms in three different profiles that are common for that body form's measurements ... if you want sizes outside the common range there's also an optional bundle of 12 wire sizes in three different profiles.

The different sizes are shown below. These are an update on the original Miyumi in that they are more flexible on assembly if you don't cut as perfectly ... now the curves will still fit if you aren't accurate (but remember the alignment arrows are still set up for perfect cutting so might not align if you aren't!). This is why a fixed paper pattern can vary in dimension too!! ... as you slide along the length of a curve you can actually increase or decrease measurements significantly ... on the bigger sizes that change can be considerable if you don't assemble perfectly! ... but at least this time it'll still go together ... whereas on the original Miyumi it was more difficult.

The Waist template for doing the paper mache can be found on the Papier Mache page.
