Decorative dress forms are a novel way of adding a pinch of class & elegance to any room, no matter how they’re placed. Be it standing in a corner, near a dresser, on a counter top, a dress form almost always fits in nicely and, besides its aesthetic function, also helps you organize various accessories and clothing items. Some dress forms are perfectly suited for preparing your next day’s outfit, jewelry included.

When it comes to retail use, decorative dress forms are great for taking your store’s visual merchandising to the next level: they tend to stand out from racks & mannequins, they’re great when you’re creating more visually complex window displays and they tend to give the space a more premium vibe, if that’s what you’re going for. We always love seeing the occasional addition of dress forms between stands, on display tables or in display windows.

These dress forms also come in a great variety of materials – some are made from iron wire, some are completely made from wood and many are made from combinations of materials such as plastic or foam with various fabric coverings, from burlap to lace. No matter what you choose, you’re buying a beautiful clothing display solution that will add extra value to your space.

With over 50 types of mannequins and over 20 types of dress forms available, you’ll surely find the perfect one for your needs. Of course, if your goal is to display clothing in a store or organize your own clothing collection, there are more solutions available in our clothing displays series. But, for now, let’s start with the best dress forms available online:
