Fashion Fan Shares ‘Genius’ Hack to Try on Clothes While Online Shopping

A fashion fan has come with a “genius” way to try on clothes virtually, which people reckon could change online shopping forever.

Buying anything off the internet is a risk, but now you can at least see how clothes look on before pressing the add to cart button.

Fashion start-up Merald shared a series of clips to its TikTok page, @meraldpopup, revealing they simply print off a photo of themselves, then cut out the item they want to try on.

Needless to say they’ve matched up the proportions to their laptop, so their 2D version can try on hundreds of styles as they scroll through various brand’s websites.

They test sweaters, pants, T-shirts and even trainers, with their most popular video amassing nearly 30 million views.

The Yes On Better Online Shopping Experiences

In theory, the infinite aisles created by online shopping should be a win for customers, as they are no longer limited by the inventory a retailer can put on their literal shelves.

Unconstrained by considerations like physical space, the shelves in a digital shop offer an endless choice of goods for consumers to purchase. But unlimited choice all on its own isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and it’s more likely to overwhelm the consumer than delight them.

Simply adding more choices isn’t a solution to digital shopping problems any more than adding more hay would make it easier to find a needle in a haystack. The solution to a needle in a haystack is a magnet, something that makes it easier to draw the wanted object out of the things that are obscuring it. And
