Anthropometry plays a crucial role in understanding the human body and its variations, contributing to advancements in various fields such as health, sports, and design. However, the current practices for identifying human body shapes for apparel production and design are limited. This study aims to address this gap by utilizing MediaPipe Pose to recognize human body measurements based on front and side poses, laying the foundation for a novel clothing sizing system. We used MediaPipe's framework for auto-capturing poses and visual recognition to identify human body outlines. The width, depth, and height of the shoulders, chest, waist, and hip were calculated based on user input height. The body scan comparison from the pilot test data suggested that the captured outline tended to underestimate widths more than depths, particularly for the female subject. Future studies may collect and manually verify a large amount of picture data and corresponding body data to develop an AI model for human body shape categorization.
