Background/Objectives: The aim of this study is to develop the body-suit pattern that enhances the reshaping effect of mid-forties women body type. Methods/Statistical Analysis: In order to produce a basic pattern, body surface shells from gypsum molds of three middle aged females was employed. Golden body proportion was applied to the design of bodysuit pattern and its pattern design. Findings: To calculate the total length of this body suit, outlining the measurement method is required. That is, in the condition of 8 to 10 % reduced ratio, the front part starts at bust point and the ratio of the distance to waist line and the distance to hip, which sets its width, is 1 to 1.2. Ratio reduction is not applied to the body suit length. Naming the body suit design method for this study as 80 BMQ size (80 is under bust circumference size; B stands for breast cup size; M indicates the length of body suit; and Q means hip circumference) is not by body measurement data but by the result of research conducted by a researcher who has produced body suit products with a body suit-specialized company as a part of industry-academic cooperation for a long time. Under bust circumference, waist circumference and hip circumference are reduced by 4 to 6 %; 9 to 10 %; and 1 to 2 % respectively. Application/Improvements: As a result, body-suit pattern for reshaping of mid forty women body was developed. It is required to pay attention to stretching the meaning depending on body suit designs by manufacturing enterprises.
