A sustainable measurement of human body dimensions is of high interest. With the significant growth of fashion industry, a perfect fit of measurement is highly expected. Though conventional anthropometry is still relevant and convenient, the preciseness and consistency of measurement is challenged. Hence, a more robust and quicker anthropometric measurement has been proposed. It is through 3D-based anthropometric measurement taking into account what the user needs and expects. Basically, numerous common-sense issues emerge within the large-scale utilize of electronic imaging frameworks, such as the choice of filter pose and robotized extraction of exact and reproducible estimations, without causing pointless inconvenience to the users. The essential focus of this work was in this manner to explore a strategy appropriate for large-scale surveying; to highlight particular issues of comparing 3D-based and manual anthropometric strategies; and to present this data within the real practices. This study involved 15 young females, their body dimensions were measured, both by the 3D-based and the traditional hand methods. There were 36 standard body dimensions compared. Statistically, it can be concluded that most body dimensions were deemed to be insignificantly different. Nevertheless, this study underpins a great communication bridge between clients and creators through the 3D virtual clothing process. The engineers and designers can effectively express their plan motivation by making a virtual clothing set so that they do not got to spend a parcel of vitality and cash to realize the physical sets. In terms of long-term orientation, the virtual 3D-based anthropometry supports the principles of sustainability especially the issue on environmentally friendly initiatives. Without a doubt, it underpins the commitment of Indonesian anthropometry updates.
