Use Metail to Create a Virtual You for Trying Clothes on Online

New, 3 comments

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Coming soon to your favorite e-tailer? Metail is a cool new plug-in that allows you to customize a virtual version of your body—by inputting all your measurements. This virtual you will be able to go into online shopping portals and try things on. Can't tell if that Shoshanna dress will fit in the bust? Not sure if those Alice & Olivia pants you're eyeing will scooch over your hips? Send your Metail self in on a virtual fitting-room mission. Pretty smart, huh? We kind of can't believe no one figured out how to do this earlier.
