Finding the Perfect Fit.

Challenges of Outerwear
Jackets and outerwear are seldomly purchased on a regular basis and customers are faced with several challenges when buying online:

  • Size
  • Fit
  • How it looks on their unique body

These factors have a direct influence on the customers’ confidence to purchase. Furthermore, Boda Skins caters to a global audience, where size and fit differ across countries, making the online shopping experience even more challenging. If the customer is unsure, he/she will likely not convert – this is where Style.me’s fitting room shines and significantly impacts Boda Skins’ online business. Providing a simple and engaging tool to tackle size and fit challenges.

Elevating Boda Skins’ Online Experience

Accurate sizing and visualization for the perfect jacket

Customers looking to purchase a handcrafted leather jacket that they will use a lifetime makes sizing and fit crucial, but these alone are not sufficient – visualization makes a major difference. Style.me’s 3D fit recommendation engine maps Boda Skins’ apparel to the shoppers’ unique measurements and body shapes, allowing them to find a perfect fit. Shoppers have the opportunity to see how the clothing looks on their unique body replica inside the fitting room. These three crucial elements combined increase the confidence to purchase – allowing the shopper to find their ideal jacket that will last a lifetime.

Customization Consistent with Brand Identity
Style.me’s virtual fitting room plugs into the site as a Shopify plugin, but the styling of the tool doesn’t stop there. Boda Skins is a brand with a personality, a Boda Skins character that should be consistent across their online store. The fitting room solution was customized to match the look and feel of the site. Quick and easy onboarding process doesn’t disrupt, but instead enhances the shopping experience, allowing customers to quickly access their personalized fitting room.
