Size and fit are among the top reasons customers return online orders, although they needn’t be. Nearly two decades ago technology innovator Alvanon began researching the possibilities to help standardize the selling of apparel online. Upholding the simple premise “let's look at the body that we are actually designing the goods on," Alvanon revolutionized mannequins based on authentic human anatomy and an intrinsic understanding of pattern making and garment production. Today, an array of internationally renowned brands, designers and retailers turn to Alvanon to ensure their products achieve the best possible fit.
