Buying fashion online still feels a bit of a gamble when we talk about sizes. I still remember the first time I bought a few dresses online (to have different options), and returning all of them because none of the them fitted me well. The frustration this time had nothing to do with the online shop’s service (free delivery and returns), but with the problem that I had to run to buy something to wear for that particular event. Like a Glove is a startup that tackles this problem with a very interesting idea: A smart dress that transmits the wearer’s measurements directly to their tablet or smart phone using the LikeAGlove app. The app’s search engine then translates the user’s measurements into accurate size matches for the garments you wants to buy.
LikeAGlove is a startup with teams in New York, San Francisco, London and Israel. They claim they will be ready to sell the garments next year. If they actually live up for the expectations, this will be some kind of new Spandex, that must-have garment in your wardrobe that nobody will ever see.
