On a whim, I priced out dress forms online one afternoon. I found a decent one on Amazon, and the seller includes an arm up to a size 12. I really would have preferred to buy even larger; the "usual" size for a pro dress form is an 8, but I'd really like to be working in the plus range. Not only did sizes over 12 not include the arm, there was a significant price jump - so if I was going to buy, it would be the 12. I'm a size 22 myself, but that's OK, I can cope with that. The real issue was whether or not to get rid of the gold chair and give up my "living room."
I asked my friends. I consulted my boyfriend. I checked my bank balance. I ordered the dress form.
