    usually i see these referred to as 'corselettes'. then we'd have to wonder about the differences between a corselette, a basque, a teddy, a bodysuit(which strangely enough doesn't cover the whole body), and unitard. i'm surprised how well the global community talks, what with so many meanings for the same word, or so many spellings of a word that sounds the same. oh the joys of communication!

    Hi,
    just wanted to chip in with a website I stumbled across that sells hoods at very reasonable prices.

    check out www.latexhoods.com

    I have used them and they offer a prompt service and the goods I ordered were very good quality - but they are a lot cheaper than most other online or street stores i have seen.

    regards

    Hi , some of it appears to be Denber for sure, but not sure that it all comes from them.
    I have used denber in the past for small orders and they are a good supplier too..and as you correctly say they are cheaper than resellers.
    However, i think they (Denber) are OK for small orders of a few items, but not sure they would seel you one item.

    I can attest to Studio Gum hoods being great hoods. But they also come at a great price too. A lifetime investment. I guess folks need something less complicated and cheaper for everyday use and spend the balance on other things.

    They are superb; however, hey are moulded. This limits the range of shapes of head they can fit. Cut n glued hoods can be made for bigger and smaller heads...

    I have bought one item at a time, no problem. They add on a small percentage for size of order, postage etc. They are very helpful on the phone if you want to query the price or size. Then you can send a cheque for the correct amount, which saves time.

    Hi guys, just received my 1st hood which i ordered from Polymorphe through Eric, Ebay. I can say that the hood is great. But i was quite disappointed on the fact that the nose area did not fit. I gave my measurements correctly and was hoping the hood will fit perfectly especially particularly the nose area, but my worst fears came. I fit the hood, the forehead, chin and neck fits ok but my nose did not even come in contact with the hood. My nose only touches the hood on the 'width' part, i would say my nose is 'shorter' than the hood's. I have a problem now, i though of changing to a smaller size which may fit my nose but result discomfort at my forehead and chin. I am in a dilemma to actually send back for an exchange or stick to the one i'm having now. Any advice ?

    Thanks

    Fr3shL4tex --

    Some advice.

    The only thing worse than a hood that is too big for your nose is one that is too small.

    A nose piece that is too small will compress your nose, causing it to become very painful.

    While an oversized nosepiece may not fit well, at least it does not hurt.

    Finding a hood with a "perfect fit" may be a challenge. Good luck!

    This is THE most difficult thing to get right. For one thing, human noses vary a lot in size and shape, independent of the rest of the face. For another, designers actually fiddle about with noses very little; I have to have my hoods made to measure, because my jaw is too big and my nose too large at the base for most people's designs. Lastly, self-measured isn't always going to give you a good fit; you're not a cutting specialist or a designer and you don't know where on the head the particular measures for tyhat pattern nedd to be taken...

    One suggestion: I have never fitted the Libidex hood pattern, because (to my eyes) the shape they make is remarkably asian - a low saddle to the nose between the eyes, and a low rise to the nostril area. I am more of a natural DeMaske hood head - high bridge to the nose, heavy jaw... maybe you should try a different brand?
