    For anyone else no more hoping in a fix from Unity, this workaround actually worked for me:

    Still bugged in 2019.4.21f1.

    Almost every week you think Unity reached rock-bottom...

    Problem is still present in 2019.4.19f LTS. Why it is considered fixed?

    It still happens in version 2019.4.13 it's really a big problem, is there a chance that it will be fixed one day?

    Issue still present in 2020.1 version. Analysis: the Cloth vertex deformation code seems to constantly recalculate the SkinnedMeshRenderer bounds and it messes it up.

    Fix: add this script to your SkinnedMeshRenderer object or higher in hierarchy.

    using UnityEngine;

    public class FixClothBounds : MonoBehaviour {

    private SkinnedMeshRenderer[] Renderers;

    void Awake() {
    this.Renderers = this.gameObject.GetComponentsInChildren<SkinnedMeshRenderer>();

    void OnRenderObject () {
    foreach (SkinnedMeshRenderer smr in this.Renderers) {
    smr.localBounds = new Bounds(, new Vector3(10f, 0.2f, 10f)); // Paste your meshes real bounds here

    Issue still occurs in 2019.4.0 and 2019.4.3. Is there plan to integrate fix to next LTS release?

    Hi, thanks a lot for sharing this with me. I am starting a new startup and was reading a business plan on website and really liked it a lot. I will use this plan to make my startup successful.
