ASOS Showing the Same Item of Clothing on Multiple Body Types – ASOS Inclusivity and Diversity with Models
Just when you thought ASOS couldn’t get any better—the trendy fashion house recently stopped Photoshopping its models’ stretch marks and skin imperfections—the brand made a decision that will win your heart all over again. Today they became one of the first retailers to show clothes on multiple body types.
And I don’t mean a separate-but-equal situation, where an item of clothing is only shown on a curvy woman when the item is also available in plus-size. No, I mean that ASOS is showing the same apparel on different models with different figures.
Twitter user Eleanor (@ejhc) was the first to point out the change, Tweeting, “omg i love @asos even more!!! finally showing the same item on girls with different body types .”
ASOS then confirmed the monumental move, responding that the update will roll out across the ASOS app soon.
“We’re always testing new technology that can make our customers’ experience even better,” said an ASOS rep to Cosmopolitan UK. “In this case, we’re experimenting with AR to show product on different size models, so customers can get a better sense of how something might fit their body shape.”
As someone whose nightly pastime is scrolling through the ASOS app and who isn’t a size zero, this news is incredibly exciting. Finally, I can stop staring at the screen trying to calculate the likelihood that my boobs will fit into a tiny romper that an even tinier model is wearing.
And clearly, I’m not the only one who is pumped:
Though there’s no official word on when exactly the update will roll out, I’ll be using this as an excuse to check my ASOS app twice a day, instead of just once. Bye, credit limit.
