Has anyone here had any problems with adjustoform dress forms?
Adjustoform was the only make of dress form I could find available in the UK and I thought a leg fitting one would be quite useful so I went for the adjustoform sew deluxe leg form. I had a few problems with the first one and then one of the white plastic bracket like bit that holds the adjusting screws snapped after a couple of months and the company were happy to replace the dress form whilst its under guarantee. The second one toppled over and several bits broke, it was on nearly the tallest height and on off centre so as to use the leg. Now the third one they replaced it with arrived already broken (the white plastic bit again).
I havent been misusing it in any way, maybe I am partially to blame for it toppling over but I expected it to be stable in any of its settings. Im trying to get a refund now before it runs out of guarantee. Whenever ringing them up the people on their phone lines state that they havent had any complaints of problems before and essentially I must be doing something wrong.
So are they made with fairly cheap plastic or am I just rather unlucky? Are the different styles of adjustoforms any better? And anyone know of any other companies/brands available to the UK?
Thanks.

I don't know about what's available in the UK, sorry. What I do know is every dress form I've ever used was fairly lightweight & rather tippy when set at it's tallest, every brand.
I keep a bag of junk on the feet of mine when I'm working with it.
I know some people have retro engineered more substantial bases for their favorite dress forms (mic stand bases are great, really heavy & smooth as to not snag anything that drapes around it).
