In the last 20 years, huge demographic changes in terms of immigration, economic crisis but also a diet richer in calories and a more sedentary lifestyle had significant effects on the body shape of people.
Cad Modelling Ergonomics with its advanced anthropometric solutions helps identifying such changes in the conformation of world population. Since 1968. FORMAX, the fit apparel mannequins developed as the natural result of the Theory of the Body Shapes (copyright SIAE of Cad Modelling Ergonomics num.94018) act as the right tool to guarantee the perfect fit, volume, comfort and safety to garments and ergonomic devices because they are built on real average body shapes worldwide.
The paper will focus on the outcomes of the 2010 anthropometric survey carried out by Cad Modelling Ergonomics on a sample of Italian women between 18 and 35 years and how these data help manufacturers guarantee the right volume and shape to their garments. This survey highlights the most recurrent body shapes in women population thanks to the use of the Body-ScanFit, the only system in the world that features a portable 3D body scanner together with the FX-FIT software, a proprietary web-based application that classifies the subject into the most suitable morphological family.
