Like A Glove, a pair of smart leggings, aims to make the online shopping experience more straightforward and accurate by measuring your legs precisely.

One of the issues that people have with shopping for clothes online is finding the perfect fit. If you don’t choose accurately, you have to go through the whole return process, undoing the potential joy of retail therapy.

LikeAGlove’s smart leggings hope to solve this issue by matching you up with your perfect pair of jeans or leggings. They measure the exact contours of your legs before connecting to an app that scans their list of retailers for a match. Users can then choose from the options presented and order directly from the retailers.

CEO Simon Cooper says that these leggings mean that "everyone now has access to a personal tailor." Of course, some people may not want to know their exact metrics.

The LikeAGlove smart leggings are now available in the UK and the US for around £35 and $49.99, respectively. It hasn’t been said if they’ll be made available elsewhere just yet; that will more than likely come down to retailers signing up to the service.
