Don't you wish...

you could see what an outfit looks like on a person with YOUR body type and not some skinny ass model?

Sorry, I'm window shopping for clothes online and it just came to me that they should have models of every body shape model the outfit you're interested in so you can get an idea of what it might look like on you.

  • That's why I don't shop online. Half the fun is going to try things on, and going from store to store!

  • wow..i feel ya..but that would take a lot of work! that's why i usually do my online shopping with brands/clothiers i already know fit me well. plus, i try to look beyond the face and body of the model. you know if she's a size 2, and the item is offered in a size 16 (not my size, just for example), it ain't gonna look the same! LOL!

    but, as long as its a reputable company and they guarantee shipping/ worries!

  • For me it's about the length of the clothes. I'm so short and petite that most clothes envelope me! lol Like coats! I love most of the coast i've found on the Macy's website but I know they would cover my entire body when most of them aren't supposed to. lol

  • They actually had that at Lands End. They still might. You put in your dimensions, height and weight, hair color and everything. Then you virtually tried the clothes on.
