The Bodymetrics 3D Body Scanner for the perfect fit

3-D body scanner by Bodymetrics

I wouldn’t mind this body scan promising me to find the perfect fitting jeans, a blouse where the buttons aren’t hanging on for dear life, and a dress sits right where I want it.

The measures I’ll go through to make sure what I’m purchasing fits me like a glove aren’t appropriate enough to list here, but let’s just say women (and men) will do anything to score the perfect fitting jeans.

The company Bodymetrics has introduced 3-D sensors by PrimeSense to the fashion industry.  Although “body scanners” in the retail industry isn’t a breakthrough idea (Selfridges in London has installed Bodymetrics scanners for the single purpose of helping consumers find the right pairs of jeans), the idea of a full body 3-D scan is.

The body scanner uses eight PrimeSense™ 3D sensors to map the body’s measurements and shape. Bodymetrics revolutionizes the way consumers buy clothes through the virtual ‘try on’ of outfits both at retail stores and through online clothing retailers, enabling customers to gauge a more realistic fit before purchase.

The new 3D body scanner with the PrimeSense technology launched at New Look, a global clothing retailer at their newest location in the Westfield Stratford shopping complex. New Look is the UK’s largest high-street jeans retailer, selling a pair of jeans every seven seconds. The initial 3D body scanner application focuses on providing advice by Bodymetrics ‘Fit Stylists’ for the best fitting jeans for female customers. The scanner quickly and accurately calculates 100 measurements. Body-shape analytics are then used to find garments that best suit the customer’s unique shape and size. –Forbes
