2) Consider your silhouette.

Before you scan, it’s important to consider what kind shape you want to create for your form. This shape will impact your fitting and design outcomes when working with your custom Beatrice. Here are things to think about:

The way you stand profoundly affects fit. For example, when one slouches, the lengths along the front of the body are compressed. The shape of your bust and tummy change as well.

Before you scan, notice how you normally stand. We recommend that you stand in a comfortable, upright posture with legs shoulder width apart. An upright posture will ensure the clothing you fit on your Beatrice will have enough length to accomodate your body when you stand up straight.

Shoulder points.
We include stickers in your scan kit to mark where you want us to end your shoulders on your form. We recommend ending your form’s shoulders where you like to put your sleeve’s shoulder seams when sewing a fitted garment. For me, this is at the inflection point of my arm as it attaches to the collar bone aka “the pivot point”.

When you scan, you’ll want to wear the undergarments that you will be wearing under the clothing you will be designing on your Beatrice. It’s important to wear your bra and any other shapewear that you normally wear when you scan because you might not be able to apply these to your form later and achieve your desired silhouette. Foam just doesn’t behave the same as your body tissue & skeleton, so it may not compress under bras and shapewear like it does on your body.

Also note, people with breasts must wear a bra during their scan. This is due to limitations in our scanning & fabrication process. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions.
