Let Fitbay Help You Find Clothes That Fit

Fitbay wants clothing for everybody

Fitbay – Clothes for everybody

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Fitbay has closed. You can learn about their mission and what they were trying to do below.

We all know that searching for clothes in the styles we like and the sizes we need is a pain. It’s less so when you’re using the internet to find what you want, but it still isn’t easy. Most brands don’t offer extended sizes, and the ones that do aren’t always great at letting customers know what they have available for their bigger customers.

There just aren’t many companies showing us cool clothing that fits, and where we can buy it. That’s where Fitbay comes in. Their mission?

Clothes for everybody – Imagine walking into a wardrobe where everything fits

Interesting, right? You know how most stores do it – you see a shirt in your size online. You order it. When it arrives, it doesn’t fit you at all. Annoying. What Fitbay is doing is basically erasing this problem by creating a community of people of varying shapes and sizes who share info on the clothing that fits them well. This helps you be ensuring that the clothes their website recommends to you fit, because it actually fit on another user with a similar body type.

Finding Your Body Doubles

I was intrigued, so I signed up for an account at their website. (Note – You can also download their handy app and sign up that way) The process was quick and painless: Create an account and take the Body Quiz. This is the part that helps Fitbay give you super relevant recommendations, and connects you with similar users in their community. Input information on gender, body type, and some basic body size information (Don’t worry – you can choose whether you want any of this information to be public or not), and you’ll immediately see a list of body doubles – other users that have similar dimensions to you. From there, you can choose to follow some of them, or navigate to other parts of the site.

Depending on what other users share publicly, you’ll see a bit of information about them on their profile. This includes the body type info they’ve entered, a profile photo, a quick bio, and the clothes they added to their profile. Click the image above to see my own profile.

Add Your Clothes For Great Recommendations

From here, you can add your favorite clothing to your profile. If it fits you, you can throw it onto the list. Either share a link to a product, or upload a photo of your own to show others what it looks like. Choose a brand, category, and the size of your clothing, and you’re good to go. You’ve added something from your wardrobe that will help other people who are similar in size find more clothes that actually fits them.
I was pleasantly surprised to find people around my size doing exactly that at Fitbay, which makes the site more worthwhile to use.
