YouTube star Safiya Nygaard is testing yet another unique method of outfitting herselfÂ â€”Â except this time it involves technology rather than strangers. With the appLikeAGlove, Nygaard documented the process of finding the â€œperfectâ€ pair of jeans, involving the use of smart leggings that measure a userâ€™s shape atÂ four points alongÂ the waist and hips.
The Smart Garment creates a Bluetooth connection with your device where the app lives, and with just one click of a button, begins recording numerousÂ measurements. Within five seconds, the LikeAGlove app will have completed the measurement process and matchedÂ you with a number of jeans. Each pair has a rating out of five stars, which indicates the compatibility of an individualâ€™s shape and size with a particular brand and style.
Although otherÂ users who have tried the app have come up with a wide range of denim ranked from one to five stars, NygaardÂ was provided withÂ an overwhelming numberÂ of five-star matches. But not all of them seemed to be five-star quality.
â€œThere werenâ€™t any glaring issues with any of them, like I could wear these jeans and be pretty comfortable, but were they perfect? No,â€ Nygaard said in her video.
The app does seem to offerÂ a goodÂ solution to the usual struggle of finding the right fit among differentÂ brands and styles of jeans. But the video invitesÂ the question â€œIs it worth trying yourself?â€
