It's called a dress form!. You can make one for very little money using duct tape and a plain t-shirt!. Here's a tutorial on how to do it!. http://etsylabs!.blogspot!.com/2007/03/dre!.!.!.
You basically have someone wrap the tape tight around your body while you're wearing the t-shirt!. (It might be good to sew the shirt so it fits close to your body or buy a close fitting but long one so the tape can be applied as smoothly as possible!.) Then you cut it up the back, tape it back together and stuff it and close it up!. It'd be best to make something to mount it on, like a stick in a flower pot full of cement or something!.

If you get a mannequin like for displaying clothing on it might be too skinny and might be harder to get one in your size!. If you decide to actually buy a dress form you'll have to measure yourself (your hips, waist, and chest I think) but I imagine they'll measure you anyway wherever you get it!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

maybe go to a store that you know sells clothes and ask them if they have any that they will sell to you that they don't need anymore!. my friend did that and they sold it to her!.Www@QuestionHome@Com

Joanns sells them, they aren't super cheap, but I dont think they are too bad!. Try craigslist or see if a school with a fashion program has some old ones they are willing to sell!. also in a recession you have a lot of stores going out of business, check out your local mall for a clothes store closing and see if they will sell you one, most going out of business sales will sell displays and things like that!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
