Description

We present a project experimenting with new approaches for fit analyses in active body poses, using half scale fit models made from 3D body scans, and compression sensors. Participants chosen as fit models for size categories of bicycle apparel were body scanned in active and standing positions. Half scale dress forms were 3D printed of one of the participant's scans, and both half scale and full scale bicycle shorts were made in two styles. Fit tests were conducted using compression sensors on the fit model with the full scale shorts and on the dress forms with the half scale shorts. Results are promising, with some correlations in the results from the two tests. Testing fit on half scale forms in active positions could contribute to the design process for activewear. Further research is needed to test results in each size in the range.
