In the pink!

It is a pink shirt tailor made for my body for the Newsbabes Bash for Breast Cancer 2012 thanks to measurements taken by a super high tech 3-D Body Scanner at Alton Lane Dupont Circle. It is much more private than the airport systems but it is also much more accurate and no X-rays as 32 sensors and receivers flash, recording thousands of data points. Then the computer generates your 3-D avatar which is sent on to the tailors who use the information to create a perfect fit. Alton Lane, 1506 St. NW, third floor. And it was all for charity!
