How 3D trial works?

The tool allows users to visualize the garment on a customized 3D avatar-type model and get the right size recommendation. In addition, the tool also allows users to layer garments providing a complete outfit view. The tool allows women to try out various looks also. With 3D trial room, which is enabled for most of the women’s apparel, abof.com’s customers can virtually try products by inputting just three basic body measurements.

Customers have also begun to purchase higher priced products such as evening dresses more confidently using this tool.

Powered by the online fitting technology company, Metail, the 3D trial room has helped to unlock the wide range of data that has helped in constantly designing and creating a better fit garments for the customers.

This technology has been deployed in a few global markets like UK, Brazil, and Far East. It took a few months to adapt this technology for Indian women body shapes. But the effort seems to have paid off in terms of higher consumer engagement, and better fit and size recommendations.
