Can’t believe I’m impressed with a genius idea on old Kim KW’s Skims website

Was just drifting through Twitter and giggling at Kim and Kanye’s latest pic of themselves in leathers on a caravan park.
Clicked on a link to her ‘Skims’ clothing shop and blow me, but you can click on an item of clothing, select ‘see in your size’ and it shows you a pic of skinny, medium and slightly plumper models wearing same item in relevant size.
Do any other shops do this?
I thought it was a super idea.
I feel quite guilty as I also quite liked the look of the clothes ...,

I think Adidas do similar. I wish ASOS would, because I'd like to know what something looks like on a size 14-16 and not a 6-8.

I’ve not seen it before.
I reckon all shops should start doing this.
I’m with you on the 14-16 size.
Haven’t been 6-8 since I was 6-8 years old.

ASOS do it for some of their clothes but not many.

Joanie (vintage style dresses etc) do this

Fabletics do. It's helpful.

Some UK sites used to do this. John Lewis was one I think. But it it was a feature that was too heavy for the available bandwidth at the time that it was really really slow and cumbersome. You could choose hair colour and length, skin colour, bust proportion, waist and hip proportions. Was quite good but was a bit ahead of its time given how long it took to load.

If all clothes were shown on two side by side models who were both size 14 with medium buss but one apple and one pear shaped, I reckon we could mostly figure out from there how we'd look!

That is a good idea - it would be nice to see how something looks in a size 16 and not always a size 6

Aloyoga do. It’s such a good idea.
