    In regards to the full motion modeling feature, are you aware of knickerpicker.com (lingerie) and their video modeling?


    They use video to allow you to see lingerie on a model and then control the spinning (180 degrees at a time) and walking of said model.

    Yeah I’ve seen that, but the problem with using models is they have nothing to do with how the items will actually look on the customer’s body (for both M+O and knicker picker)

    BUT, KP has 5 different body types for models so it is as good as it is going to get – and they have expanded into other clothing areas now too. Don’t get me started on virtual fitting rooms – that is the biggest waste of technology investment – virtual clothes on a virtual body, come on.

    BUTT…(no pun intented, maybe just a little)

    They’re still 5 models’ bodies. Everything is going to look good on them. You can’t even figure out what size the models are, you have to eyeball and guess. Plus they’re tall so when you get into clothing it’s even harder to judge fit – how long are the legs and torso?

    You’re right though, it’s as good as it’s going to get because aside from a user uploading a picture of themselves and pasting the clothes on (far to expensive to implement) or uploading every possible body type and doing photoshoots with them (like that’s gonna happen) this is as good as it gets.

    Personally, I would never rely on KP or similar feature to shop online for myself other than to get an idea of the item’s front and back views rather than the garment all flat. What I think M+O’s advantage is that it’s a merchandising tool, it shows various items put together that can all be purchased at once, rather than “this is how x, y and z are going to look on you”

    I would like to give Intellifit a try, though. That’s probably the best way to know if something fits. http://www.getelastic.com/virtual-fitting-room-clothing-retailer-video-demonstration/

    So are we proposing retailers list models measurements?

    Well in KP they say “click a model in your size” and you see these thumbnails that look VERY similar with no size guide, you have to guess – not measurements but UK 6/8/10/12/14/16 or US 2/4/6/8/10/12 would help.

    Unless they do show it and I completely overlooked it?

    Very often features which are very nice and look like great make the website loading for 2 minutes. Then it is really wrong way.
