Finding a pair of jeans that fit perfectly can be hard. LikeAGlove is trying to change that.
The Israeli start-up created a pair of smart shorts that use sensors to take exact measurements of your waist and hips. After the data is synced with the app, a catalogue pops up with listings from 15 major retailers, with a rating between one and five stars for best fit.
How It Works
Shorts measure your shape. Put them on and press measure in our free app. They link via Bluetooth and measure you in seconds. Shorts are very stretchy and fit sizes 0-18, and 10-32W in curvy version.
The shorts can also be used to measure and track your fitness goals. As you input your measurements over time, the app keeps a log of how much your waist and hips are growing or shrinking.
The app also matches your measurements against jeans. Finds specific brands, models and sizes to fit your shape best. Browse the recommendations, click through to purchase from that retailer.
The extensive jeans catalogue includes: Levi’s, Lucky, Old Navy, 7ForAllMankind, Gap, Banana Rep., Citizens of Humanity, Joe’s, J Brand, American Eagle, Paige, Ann Taylor, True Religion, AG, Hudson.
The company said that 95 % of customers are women. Men can only use the app to track measurements, not to order jeans.
LikeAGlove smart shorts cost USD 80 a pair and have a non-replaceable battery that lasts up to five years.
