Perfect fit requires knowledge of body sizes and shapes.

Hohenstein has expertise AND technology.

We record body data then help you convert it into a perfect fit and consistent sizing.

We've been conducting anthropometric studies for 60 years - previously with a measuring tape, but since 1999 using 3D scanning. This huge database is essential to developing reliable size tables for each target group. Now we use 4D scanning to record real body measurements and shapes during relevant movements (especially important for sportswear and workwear).

With our Digital Fitting Lab, we partner with manufacturers, brands and retailers on customized projects, including digitizing material parameters3D design and visualization and customized avatars.

Harness data to improve processes and products.

Information based on Hohenstein's huge database of body scans.

  • 3D/4D scans and analysis
  • Size, shape and demographic data with full body, heads, hands, feet
  • Measurements of men, women and children plus special target groups such as men’s and women’s plus sizes or seniors
  • Scan data from SizeNorthAmerica and SizeGERMANY studies

Customized size tables, patterns and advice based on target group data and relevant movements.

While fit testing on human subjects is still indispensable, 3D and 4D technologies are valuable for an optimized product development process:
