Customers struggle to find ideal outfits online
Online outfit shopping should be fun and inspiring, but without the right tools, finding ideal outfits can be a time-consuming, costly, and frustrating experience.
Why is it difficult?
Uncertain about how it will look on them
“I ended up with something that’s different from what imagined.”
Clothes purchased online don't fit their body shape
“I wish this dress could be slightly shorter”
Choice overload impedes decision making
“Can't find an ideal outfit after hours of searching.”

Compare to in-store shopping, current online shopping is hard for users to make alternative evaluations due to the missing experience of touching the materials and trying on clothes in person.
Alternative evaluation is complicated
Influencers have different body shapes and try-on scenarios
Users need outfits that adapts to their unique body shape
It’s hard to search outfits visually with text-based filters
