Fits.me (Apparel Only)

Fits.me is the number one virtual fitting room technology, used by more retailers than any
other solution. Among the latest retailers to roll out Fits.me’s solution are Ermenegildo Zegna
and Thomas Pink (part of LVMH Group). CNBC Business chose Fits.me as one of the Top 20
breakout brands for 2011, and more recently Vogue included Fits.me among the online
fashion 100 – the list of the Top 100 most influential names in fashion e-commerce in 2012.

Since they create a virtual fitting room for each retailer, the pricing structure needs to be customized.
