Finding clothes that fit well can be a daunting task. Most of us have struggled with ill-fitting clothes at some point in our lives. Whether the sleeves are too long, the waistline is too loose, or the shoulders are too tight, getting the perfect fit seems like a never-ending quest. But what if you could have clothes that fit perfectly to your body, without the need for any alterations? This is where flex fitting comes in. In this article, we will explore what flex fitting is, how it works, and its benefits to the fashion industry and consumers alike.
What is Flex Fitting?
Flex fitting is a technology-based solution that enables clothing to fit perfectly to the wearer’s body shape and size. With flex fitting, the clothes adjust themselves to the wearer’s body, ensuring a custom-made fit. This is achieved through the use of advanced software and algorithms that analyze the wearer’s body measurements, and then adjust the garment’s pattern to fit those measurements exactly. The pattern is then sent to a fabric cutting machine which cuts the fabric according to the adjusted pattern.
How Flex Fitting Works
Flex fitting works by using a combination of 3D body scanning technology, software, and algorithms to analyze the wearer’s body shape and size. The 3D body scanner captures the wearer’s body measurements from various angles, creating a digital 3D model of the body. The software then uses these measurements to adjust the garment’s pattern to fit the wearer’s body exactly. The adjusted pattern is then sent to a fabric cutting machine which cuts the fabric according to the new pattern.
Once the garment has been cut, it undergoes a process called “pre-sewing”, where the fabric is sewn together loosely to allow for any final adjustments to be made. The wearer then tries on the garment, and any necessary final adjustments are made by a trained tailor using special tools and techniques. The garment is then sewn together properly, and the final product is a perfectly fitting garment.
The Benefits of Flex Fitting
Flex fitting has several benefits for both consumers and clothing manufacturers. For consumers, the biggest benefit is the ability to have custom-made clothing at a lower cost than traditional bespoke tailoring. With flex fitting, there is no need for multiple fittings or alterations, which can be time-consuming and expensive.
For manufacturers, flex fitting reduces material waste by cutting fabrics more precisely, and increases production efficiency. It also allows manufacturers to offer a wider range of sizes without the need for extra inventory, as each garment is custom-made to the wearer’s exact measurements.
