Virtusize Helps You Compare Clothing Size Online with What You Own

There are tons of perks to online shopping, but if there's one drawback, it's that you can never be sure of clothing size online. Sizes tend to differ from country to country, as well as sometimes even within brands and most of the time, if you can't go and try it on in-store before you buy online, you might as well be taking a stab in the dark.

With an account on Virtusize, this handy app will pop up on any webstore that's connected to its service, which currently covers retailers like Shopbop, Zalora and Nelly. Using a piece of clothing that you already own as reference, the app makes size comparisons and visually shows the difference so that you know if a shirt's waist area will be a little snugger or have a looser cuff than the blue shirt that's already sitting in your closet.
