Hello has anyone ever got a body scan from Unique patterns. It is a laser that takes all of your measurements and makes a custom pattern to fit your measurements, which cuts down on fitting issues. I am thinking of doing it, just wondering if anyone has done it before and how it was.

I had it done a few years back and the results weren't that accurate. I also had several people in my Fit REview class that had it done, and still had to alter their patterns. The (famous) instuctor said it was a good starting point but not perfect.

Also known as the Body Scammer. Haven't heard of anybody it's worked for.

I agree with Diane S. You still have to alter your patterns.

There was also a problem in just trying to get the patterns - I read of many who paid their money received nothing for many months afterward.
