Celebrating International Women’s Day with our Liz Manikin

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear sports bras. And thanks to Liz, our female manikin, it’s easier now than ever before to make sure those sports bras fit just right.

This International Women’s Day, we’re celebrating the strength and uniqueness of women and the organizations that are championing equality by making clothing specially designed for the female form.

From firefighters to athletes, our female manikins are helping companies like Nike pave the way for women to perform any role with clothing tailored to their needs.Thermetrics female manikin Liz Quoted in a recent MSN feature, Nike credited our Liz Thermal Manikin in their development of more size-inclusive and performance-optimized sports bras for women. (The team at Nike calls her Haley, but we’re hooked on the original Liz moniker!) Read the MSN article here.

Nike uses Liz for both quality control and testing, and also at earlier product development stages when designers are considering enhancement options like additional ventilation or sweat wicking.

If you’d like to join Nike in their quest to “create the best products possible for [women]” or if you’ve made great progress with your Newton or ANDI, and realize it’s time to bring on a partner that will allow you to specifically test garments on the female form, Liz is your gal!
