Find Your Best Size Across Popular Clothing Brands with Fitbay's New Sizing Tool

It's ridiculous and also annoying how clothing sizes vary so much across brands. You could be a size 8 in one brand and a 12 in another. Fitbay's new sizing tool helps take some of the guesswork out of finding out what size to choose.

First you'll select the brand you're interested in buying, then your gender, and the clothing category (e.g., jeans, shirts, jackets, etc.). Instead of putting in detailed body measurements, you then just select your body shape, height, weight, and age. (Not sure why age is included there, but whatever.)

You'll then get the recommended clothing size for that brand and see Fitbay users who have a similar body profile as you.

We've mentioned Fitbay before, but previously it only showed you clothes that would likely fit you based on those body matches. They have taken the data of all their users who have input their sizing information to come up with this new sizing tool.

Of course, measuring yourself is a more exact way of ensuring a perfect fit, particularly if you're shopping online and have access to size measuring charts. This tool could still be a pretty good shortcut when you don't know your exact measurements.

    AFAICT from my trial of Fitbay, it is not sensitive to the fact that clothing sizes vary not just by brand but by geographic market. Many European and North American brands simply don't offer the same cuts in Australia as they do in their home markets. Australia seems to be more scaled to match East Asian markets (not to mention being much more skinny-fit-obsessed than other markets).

    Levi's has so many cuts of each of its models (e.g. "501" which is nothing like the ones I bought in the 80s) that you simply can't rely on a domestic supplier to stock what a more US-based service like Fitbay might suggest.
