Considering the importance of 3D body shapes and designing with 3D bodies directly, new tools of fit evaluation and garment design are investigated. In this research, we explore half scale body forms in the cycling pose as a tool for pressure measurement for tight fitting bicycle wear. Comparison of pressure values were conducted, which were obtained from participants and their half scale forms produced by 3D body scanning in the active pose. As a subsequent research phase, production and material alternatives for half scale body forms were investigated. Even though the correlation between the pressure values from half scale forms and human participants is not strong enough to replace participant testing, tests with alternative forms indicated reliability in pressure measuring for each of the suggested half scale forms in this research.
