Fit For Me By ModCloth Makes Shopping Online Less Risky

11/02/2013 11:09 am ET

We've all been there. You find something you love on an e-commerce site, and it arrives in a different shade than expected or the fit runs two sizes too small. Luckily, ModCloth has come up with the perfect solution: They're asking you how it fits first.

Fit For Me, a new app by ModCloth, helps shoppers to find the perfect garment by crowdsourcing those who've already purchased the item. Here's how it works: You enter your measurements -- height, bra, waist and hips -- and then the app delivers a slew of specific ModCloth items that suit your body type and size based on thousands of real customer reviews. Hey, we can't imagine anyone better than the nitpicky online shopping community to tell you like it is.

Other crowdsourcing shopping apps, like Pose and WiShi, have tapped into fellow shoppers' wisdom to help individuals make more informed purchasing and styling decisions, but Fit For Me is unique in that it comes straight from a retailer that's willing to admit that some of its garments aren't exactly the right fit for everyone.

Considering our luck with online shopping ventures, we'd say this is a step in the right direction. See screenshots of the Fit For Me app below and tell us if you think it's helpful.
