Tailors Dummies

What Are Tailors Dummies?

A tailors dummy, also called a dressmaker’s dummy or dress form, is a human-shaped form that is used to help create garments or display clothing in stores. There are numerous benefits that these dummies provide for both designers and store owners.

Tailor dummies garner tremendous benefits in retail environments. They enable store owners to showcase clothing in a lifelike form, creating an immersive shopping experience that entices customers to imagine themselves in the garments. Furthermore, they assist in perfecting garment design, allowing clothing to be fitted and draped on a three-dimensional figure. As the base of the units is adjustable, this allows the user to position the units at different heights.

How To Use A Tailor Dummy:

When putting your tailors dummy to good use, ensure it is fully assembled and secured in its stand. For dressmaking purposes, pin or drape your fabric onto the dummy while adjusting the fit and design. As a visual merchandising tool, regularly change the clothing and accessories on the dummy, keeping your display fresh and captivating. Strategise your display according to your target audience and current trends, continuously fine-tuning it for optimum results.

Available in a range of colours like cream, black, and white, and designed for various genders and ages, tailor dummies can easily cater to diverse retail markets. From male to female and child dummies, your store’s display options are readily expandable. Our tailors dummies are made of polystyrene which is covered with stretchy material. As a result, they are light and easy to move around a shop. In addition, if you did wish to use these dummies for dressmaking, pins can be put into the polystyrene bodies without damaging them. Finally, the height of these dummies can be adjusted to meet your needs thanks to their adjustable base.
