Online Shopping for Apparel: The Elephant in the Room
Updated: Dec 16, 2019
Shopping for clothes online is broken, let’s fix it!
70% of retail sales are still done in brick and mortars and why is that? How can it be that in
spite of the
conveniences of online shopping people still go into the stores to buy clothes?
Well, if you’re an e-commerce store owner that operates in fashion, you’re likely to guess
customers are still married to the experience of trying before buying. It’s clear - shopping for
clothes is an intimate, hands-on experience that keeps millions flocking to malls and
investing hours to try clothes on and make sure its a good fit.
And it’s for a good reason, too. People come in all shapes in sizes in between, yet, we can
barely count on styles having a reliable fit from one season to the other, let alone from one
fashion label to the next. How can we possibly know that clothes fit us correctly when
And that’s the point, you can’t figure out if something will fit correctly because 86% of us
don’t fit these arbitrary sizes that manufacturers make for us. We are “in between” sizes.
One part of our body is an S, while the other may be an M. Naturally, it’s really difficult to
reliably shop online for clothes that actually fit!
Fitting in clothes correctly is a guessing game, until now.
Online shoppers indulge in a game of throwing darts in the dark when ordering apparel
online since the physical product is so far removed from sitting at their computers or on their
mobile phones, and often, only aided by a sizing chart. The problem is bad for business, bad
for the customer experience, and bad for the environment - returns mean wasted energy and
effort across the board. Isn’t it about time that shoppers had a simple and convenient way to
“try on” clothes before purchasing and shipping your merchandise across the country?
