The cover dress form is not a full-fledged dress form. This product requires a smaller mannequin as a base. The Dress Form Cover is like a pillowcase to put on top of an existing dress form with smaller measurements than your body. It is also ideal if your weight fluctuates. If the cover is made of stretchy ponte knit, you can add or remove padding as your weight fluctuates.
