com, you “share your closet” by submitting information about clothes you already own that fit well. A simple step-by-step guide takes you through the process – you tell Size Wand the type of clothing item, material, brand, size, relative fit, and if available, the style name, style number and RN number. The guide shows you examples of clothing tags so you know which numbers to enter. The program works best if you share items from your closet that are made by “preferred brands” – common clothing lines that Size Wand knows the most about. Preferred brands range from Hanes to Abercrombie & Fitch to Lane Bryant to Juicy Couture, so no matter your clothing taste or budget, you likely have at least a few preferred brand items in your closet.
Once you’ve shared your closet, Size Wand will be by your side as you clothes shop online. The program will integrate itself with retailers’ own pages, so wherever you browse, Size Wand will automatically suggest your size for any items for which it can provide an accurate recommendation. This part of the site is not live yet, but users can share their closets now and register to be notified as soon as the full site launches. Monthly prizes (like an iPod Nano or shopping spree) encourage users to give Size Wand a try, and to invite friends to join via email or Facebook. In Their Own Words
