I know many of you would like to do fiberglass clones of yourself , but like myself don't have the time or money to mess with that!
So I did some digging and some may have seen this already, but I want to post it anyways.

There's also the old duct tape method.. in which you put on a longish, tight-fitting t-shirt and then have somebody wrap you up tight in duct tape.. when you're done, cut it open up the back and stuff it. It works pretty well, and it's cheap - I do this when I need an idea of my shape in different corsets.

Ooh, I like the paper tape method. When I sewed at my friend's house, we used her mom's smashed, broken, and way too small dress form >_<

A few years back I convinced my grandmother to buy me a Fabulous Fit dress form. It's been wonderful - you adapt the shape with pads that fit under a stretchy cover that you can then pin into - but I've lost weight and the form is almost too big for me now. That said, it's a lifesaver.
