size is all that matters
You may have heard me mention previously that I limit my clothes shopping to a certain brands and stores. I’ve primarily done this to limit the amount of crying I do when I take a trip to the mall… trust me, it’s not pretty. I’m not sure anything will come close to the great Nordstrom boot meltdown of 2003 at the Grove (like full meltdown of epic proportions in the middle of the shoe department… it was bad!), but I try to prevent clothing fit mishaps from happening if I can help it.
Because of this, I’d like to pass on any sense of safety I can to my fellow fearful clothes hunters if I can. This week I saw a new app on the iphone called What’s My Size. Since sizing varies so differently from store to store, this app takes into account your height, chest, weight and hip measuremetns, and then spits out what your size is at various stores.
If you’re wondering, there were only like 5 stores that gave me a size. And they’re the stores I shop at now. Now there’s some validation for my selective shopping! But I tested it out with some imaginary girl who wasn’t 6’1 and it worked beautifully! :) Hopefully this will empower some of you to try out some new stores now that you know your size, and let some of you have a lot more fun than I do at the mall!
Very cool. I like this. I’ll have to see if they have it for the iPad.

WOW, that sounds like a brilliant app! I’ll have to download it for my iPad :)
That is AWESOME! As soon as my iPhone arrives in the mail I’m putting this app on it, for sure!
