Fit:Match pairs shoppers with 'fit twins' to recommend sizes and styles
As it prepares to open its first-ever retail locations, lingerie brand Savage X Fenty said its inaugural store in Las Vegas will feature augmented reality (AR) technology from apparel matching platform Fit:Match.
The AR tech uses body shape data—not standard measurements—to help brands match customers with the best-fitting products.
Once a Savage X Fenty customer conducts an AR body scan, Fit:Match’s algorithm analyzes their body shape to match them with a “fit twin,” which is based on the shape profile of an actual person and “functions as the shopper’s personal fit model.” Fit:Match can then recommend the sizes and styles that will look best on each shopper’s specific body.
Savage X Fenty is a brand known for size inclusivity, offering bra sizes from 32 to 46 in bands and A to H in cups, as well as underwear and sleepwear from XS to 3X.
“We’re extremely pleased to partner with Fit:Match to lead innovation in the shopping experience and eliminate the fit question for our Savage X Fenty customers,” said co-presidents Christiane Pendarvis and Natalie Guzman in a statement.
In addition to using body shape data to recommend products, Fit:Match also builds a size-shape database for brand partners like Savage X Fenty.
“Shape, which cannot be accurately predicted by surveys and measurements, is the most important determinant of fit, especially for a category as complex as bras,” added Fit:Match CEO Haniff Brown.
After its retail debut in Las Vegas, Fit:Match AR technology will roll out to “all Savage X Fenty customers across all channels” in 2022.
Savage X Fenty also plans to open stores in Los Angeles, Houston, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. in early 2022.
