Body Shape and Effect on Draping Properties

While moving different bodies will need varied space or freedom for stretch and relaxation in the fabrics and fully designed suits. That’s why measurements are done and redone again to put all factors in consideration. Some fabrics offer minimal fiber stretch but some relax with time, wear and dry cleaning.

Standing Still Position – a relaxed position is always preferred to ensure the body is at its best posture. Moreover suits are designed to ensure maximum comfort and mobility even from the standing position.   

Posture and Personal Height – height brings a different perspective as making overly long pants or coat seems out of turn and sync. For better draping the suits height reflects the height, ease and possible postures of the wearer.

Hunched Leaning Position – many wearers are bound to sit or lean from activity or the other. Body shape is critical here as different bodies will go different angles and exert fabrics differently. Moreover the manner of detailed stitch can determine the level or extent of comfortable stretch without tear or damage and retaining the ease of suit drape.
