Has anyone tried a “Uniquely You” form? It’s made of foam and you sew the cover to fit your measurements. I cannot make it work. Even if the measurements are the same, the body contours aren’t. Has anyone had better luck–any suggestions will be appeciated!
I had the same experience. My form came with enormous boobs, which I never really succeeded in mashing down adequately. Even though I managed to squoosh her into my circumference, she still had a D-cup, which I certainly did not.
In addition, she didn't duplicate the subtler curves, like one shoulder blade that sticks out a bit, and a small area of tummy fluff. She simply filled out the canvas form very sleekly, like a sea lion.
Not to move traffic from one website to another, but here are several long and complete discussions of types of dressforms, and alterations thereto, at http://www.patternreview.com
Thanks for your input. My husband has decided to buy an electric knife and "sculpt" the form. He reasons (?) that he can work with wood so why not foam? At least I'll be laughing! Also I will check out the discussion at pattern review.
