ASOS Now Lets You See Clothes On Different Sized Models And It's A Game-Changer

ASOS Now Lets You See Clothes On Different Sized Models And It's A Game-Changer

We've all stood in front of the mirror after trying on a new online purchase, wondering how on earth it could look *so* different to the image on the website.

But ultimately, we're all different shapes and sizes which makes it tricky to visualise how different styles will suit our own shape and height.

Now, ASOS has taken a step in the right direction by launching a new function using augmented reality (AR) technology, which lets shoppers see the item they're interested in on a range of different models.

A collaboration with Israeli AR company Zeekit, 'See My Fit' is currently being trialled on desktop only (not on the ASOS app) and on a select number of items.

A pop-out box then appears on the screen, with 16 different options to view, although the images are digitally created and not shot in real-life.

The new tool is currently available on 800 different dresses, which you can view on the 'See My Fit' section of the ASOS website.

Tim Carey, senior content manager at ASOS Studios, said: "With this trial of See My Fit, we're using the latest in AR technology to put the power in our customers' hands, so they can choose to view a dress on the model that they most identify with, in a way that wouldn't be possible using traditional model-shooting techniques."

Chief product officer at ASOS.com, Andrea Trocino, took to LinkedIn this week to show off the new feature, explaining the brand were welcoming feedback from customers.

"Happy to get any feedback from Linkedin, on top of seeing how our customers will react!" he wrote.

With a huge selection of dresses included in the trial, from mini to maxi, wrap styles and one-shoulder designs, we certainly hope the tool is rolled out across the entire website as soon as possible.

It will certainly save us a lot of time and effort with returns...
