“The Theory of Body-Shapes”

“To make garments you need to have a perfect knowledge of the subjects that will wear them”

Silvio Quattrocolo

Real anatomies and the “Theory of body shapes”


Silvio Quattrocolo – founder of the company-, identified 6 main body shapes for men and 8 for women. Ranges and anatomical averages are continuously monitored by Cad Modelling and products are updated following population anthropometric evolution
To constantly update its anthropometric database and increase its number of body shapes, the company follows the development of technologies concerning human body measurements. Since the 80’s Cad Modelling is therefore also involved in body scanning with applications in Textile and Apparel Industry, Ergonomics and Medicine.
