Elevator Pitch:

Try lets you try on clothing from your favorite online stores — for free — with just a click.


Why It’s A Killer Startup:

I think we can all agree that online shopping is awesome, right? We have access to such a wide range of options these days, a number that couldn’t even have been dreamed of in the days when malls ruled supreme. Whether you’re searching for a specific, handmade fabric, or you’re only into name brands, or you just want a better price, online shopping is definitely the way to go.


But one element of online shopping is not so awesome. That’s the fact that you can’t try anything on. While plenty of companies have tried to solve this problem, there hasn’t been one definitive one to take the crown — yet.


The latest company to throw their hat into the ring is Try, a new startup that makes trying on clothing from online stores as easy as one click of a button. The app is actually a Google Chrome button which appears on their partnering sites when you’re browsing. If you’re interested in trying out an item before buying it, just click the yellow “Try For Free” button, and it will be sent to your house. Try it on. If it doesn’t work for you, send it back with the prepaid, included label within 10 days of receiving it.


That’s it! No more settling for clothes that fit less than perfectly because it’s a PIA to return them, and no more relying on malls just because you really need to try stuff on before you buy it. If you want to make life even easier, sign up for Shyp and you don’t even have to bother with going to the post office.


You’re welcome.



Yes, you can actually try on stuff from online stores WITHOUT PAYING. Get @try.
