Projects descriptions


The EasyDress allows to determine the body size of a person's clothing from a photo. Based on the well-known fact that the size of the iris is the same for all people and equal to 12 millimeters, EasyDress makes calculations of body size with two pictures: a face photo and a full-length photo. Since every third purchase of apparel through the online retailer ends with a return, in particular because of the erroneous determination of the size, determining the right size becomes an important task, which EasyDress is designed to solve, to make shopping easy.
