I guess you would have to have some kind of scan or measuring device that would *map* the plains, hills and valleys of your body. This information would then be transfered to a pattern-map of your personal contours. Then you may pick your preference of clothing/ IE: T-shirt, underwear, trousers, etc. The map would be printed onto your choice of clothing with names you may provide for areas of your own body.

This can be used as a guideline for people wishing to modify some parts of their body, like reducing Tudor Mountain to become a hill, or increasing Bitsy Biceps to Bumper Biceps! Of course, once you have changed your *topographics*, you should have a new garment made.

       I don't quite understand [pocmloc]'s link. Maybe I should have been more descriptive, stating that this clothing would look like a topographic map with the lines and altitudes marked.

       "maybe I should have been more descriptive"   

       What would the scale between contour lines be?

       Ah, I see. Well, consider my link a 'relief map' perhaps?
pocmloc, Jul 08 2012
  

       OK, my idea was clothing that looks like a topographic map of your county, only it's of your body!! You know how some women have *high altitude* breasts?

       A flat corn field comes to mind. But that could just be because of my latest relocation to the Midwest.

       //high altitude* breasts   

       Strangely, only this morning, it crossed my mind that there might be a market for those kind of implants filled with helium..

       I think I meant *high elevation*- but helium implants would be great for swimming without having to use a float!!

       you could make the clothing out of photo-sensitive lycra, and then use Structured-light illumination (which is usually used for 3D scanning.) (see link)
