Buying a Only Mannequins dress form means you are buying from a U.S. Company that has been selling mannequins for 15 years, they have the experience and the know how to design and manufacture an item that will do its job.
Being Local means that if you lost a part or had a part broken, we can ship it right away from the Only Mannequins warehouse in NJ or CA.
Some Good Information:
1) Keep in mind that sizes may vary from Brand to Brand, so always go by the measurements for example a size 4 Gucci maybe a size 2 by Calvin Klein
2) This form is made of Hard Fiberglass then covered in a foamy material and then wrapped with the cover, Since the surface is hard this model is not truly Pinnable, but some have made use of it while pinning sideways using the foam and material cover.
3)The material cover is a higher quality cover that can take more wear and tear than usual, if it gets dirty you can simply take it off wash it dry it and put it back on, you can also take off the white material and put on a Black material cover, etc.
4)The form can also be taken off the tripod and placed on a table, great for using as a center piece.
5) Its always best to keep the form as low as possible and close to the base so that it is more stable.
6) Knowing what kind of wood your tripod is made of is really important, keeping away from birch, eucalyptus and other popular Chinese wood will make sure your tripod can take more abuse and last longer, if your vendor does not know stay away and stick with the guys that do.
