Bra and Body Shaper Research
3 of 10

This research project is designed to investigate bra and body-shaper sizing, fit, and styling based on standard sizing techniques. First, we will determine if the subject is wearing the correct bra size, based on her measurements. Then the subject will try our bra and body shaper styles in the appropriate size, and we will use our body scanner to create 3D images of these garments. In addition, we will use pressure sensors to measure the clothing pressure at key areas. We will also gather information on the subject's reactions to the size, fit, and style of these products.
