ZOZO: a bodysuit that helps you find the perfect fit

Ordering clothes over the web is easy in practice, but finding the right fit is tricky. It’s a problem that wastes time for shoppers and costs retailers millions annually. Could ZOZO’s body-scanning suit and custom-made clothing line cut out the need for returns and make online shopping fun?

Location Japan

Scope
Buying clothes online can be notoriously difficult, especially if you don’t fit into a classic size 10. The fashion industry has been dominated for years by standard sizes, which still differ depending on the year, shop and style. Customers have become increasingly frustrated with standard sizing in recent years and the growth in retail sales online, where you are unable to try items on before you order, has only exacerbated the problem.
