In response to direct customer feedback, Ridestore engaged Fit Analytics to address issues around fit and sizing. David Voge, Content Marketing & French Lead said: 

“Fit Finder helps us create a dialogue with our customers. Although this tool is first thought to find the perfect size for our customers, it is also a pretty powerful acquisition lever. Indeed, it is easier to create a trusting relationship with reassuring tools; it’s also a great way to show that we’re trying our best to go further than most other e-commerces by offering an innovative tool that meets the real needs of our customers. FitFinder and our StyleCreator allow us to digitize the old physical fitting rooms.”

How Data Can Save Halloween

Still in need of a Halloween costume? Don’t worry – Fit Analytics is here to help!

Fit Analytics’ sizing platform has the largest data set in the industry. We’re watching the hottest trends and can help you create a DIY Halloween costume!

Did you know that leopard print spiked in winter 2018/2019? How about the fact that 2019 saw plaid comeback with a vengeance? From the garment and fit information that Fit Finder collects, we are able to see trends across different metrics from patterns and colors, to styles and garment types. With that in mind, we’ve come up with a few costume ideas based on popular items you probably own. Thanks to Fit Analytics’ data, you don’t have to scramble to find a last minute Halloween look!

Plaid

Based on the graph below, we can see that the sale of women’s lower body plaid items was almost 40 times higher in fall 2018 than in January 2017.

Graphs showing plaid trends for men and women between 2017 and 2019.

This leads us to believe you might just have a plaid skirt in your closet. If so, here are a few costumes you can create.

Turtlenecks

Women purchased 120 times more tracksuits in April 2019 than they did that time last year. Men bought 80 times more tracksuits over the same period of time. Did you buy into this trend too? If so, then you can dress up as…
