Analysis of Three Dimensional Torso Shape and Bodice Pattern Shape of Young Japanese Women



Kyoto Women's University, Kyoto, Japan


The purpose of this study was to clarify factors that reflect the diversity of the shape of the body of young Japanese women. One hundred fifty-six young, healthy Japanese women were measured using VIVID 910 non-contact 3D digitizers and the data for each individual were transformed to a homologous model to enable statistical analysis. These models were then analyzed with principal component analysis (DHRC-HBS-PCA). The three-dimensional body surface of each subject was developed by LookStailorX. The relationships between the principal components and shape of the developed surface were observed in the clothing alteration. These factors could be effective input variables for pattern alteration in addition to ordinary size variables. The application of "body type grade" was examined.
