GetMySize.com is a new online clothing website that is currently offering gift cards to members in an effort to build their inventory. Members can sell their new or used clothes for free, and get a nice incentive for doing so.
Never Get the Wrong Size Again!
Portland-Vancouver, OR-WA (1888PressRelease) December 18, 2009 - Billions of dollars are spent by Americans each year buying apparel on the internet. Potential shoppers can see multiple pictures, price, and the size, seems like an open and shut case, right? Wrong.
A size small, for example, can vary from brand to brand, and can even vary within the same brand. There’s nothing more frustrating that waiting a week to get a new shirt or pair of shoes from an online store and realizing the item doesn’t fit.
GetMySize.com is a free website that will allow users to create a body profile with their own unique measurements. They can measure their head circumference for hats, foot length and width for shoes, and even measure their arms, chest, waist and legs to find the best fitting shirt, shorts or pants. All profile measurements are stored on the website for easy reference.
GetMySize.com is currently offering Amazon.com gift cards to the users who post the most items for sale on their website. “We are a fairly new website and I feel we should offer some incentive to users who post their clothing on our site.” explains Ryan Illingworth, founder of GetMySize.com. “More importantly, I believe the online clothing shopper will realize that they deserve to know what size clothing they are getting before they buy. GetMySize.com will get you as close to finding the right fit without even trying the item on.”
Small or large businesses can add articles of clothing to GetMySize.com and enter the measurements of the clothing item they want to sell. They will follow the same measurement specifications as members of GetMySize.com who created a body profile. This way, both the buyer and seller are following the same guidelines to ensure a more exact fit. Users can even compare their measurements side by side with clothing measurements, ensuring they will get the correct fit the first time.
Members that prefer to create their body profile or add clothing to the website in centimeters will find GetMySize.com extremely helpful. GetMySize.com will automatically convert inches to centimeters and vice versa. Clothing companies, especially those in countries where the metric system is used, will be able to target users who want to find clothes measured in inches.
Craigslist and eBay sellers can even link their items for sale to GetMySize.com, eliminating the need to answer multiple questions about their clothing item’s specific measurements. Shoppers can simply follow a link back to GetMySize.com from a Craigslist or eBay clothes posting, and compare their GetMySize.com body profile measurements side by side with that article of clothing’s measurements to find the best fit.
There will be no more guesswork when shopping for family members either. In addition to creating your own body profile, members of GetMySize.com can add their spouse or children to their account, making shopping easy for the entire family.
Shopping for apparel online shouldn’t be such a difficult task. You can buy and sell 24 hours a day, and usually find better deals than you can inside a real store. But if you can’t get the right fit, then what’s the point?
