Anthropometry, Apparel Sizing and Design (Woodhead Publishing Series in Textiles) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the greatest challenges for the apparel industry is to produce garments that fit customers properly. "Anthropometry" refers to the study of body dimensions such as size, weight and shape. Anthropometric data is critical in determining sizing systems for clothes and their design. The book covers sizing systems developed for particular groups, apparel size designation and the potential for international standardization. It considers the advantages of 3D body scanning and computer-aided design as well as using body motion analysis to address ease allowance requirements of apparel.

Part one considers a range of anthropometric methods; the text discusses the range of sizing systems, including data mining techniques, useful for bridging the gap between ergonomists and designers, and examines three-dimensional anthropometric methods and multivariate and bivariate analysis for identifying key body dimensions.  Part two then explains how to analyze anthropometric data to develop appropriate sizing systems, as well as reviews the classification and clustering of human body shapes, the importance of national surveys and how to use the data obtained to ensure inclusive design strategies.
