PeerModel for iOS Helps Keep Clothing From Wasteful Online Returns

April 7, 2020 in Social Networking (E)

[] Hyattsville, Maryland - PeerModel, LLC today launched version 1.3 of its eponymous iOS app, an innovative fashion marketplace that matches people of similar builds in order to recommend clothing that fits. Users can browse fashion items, friend models, and tag items for purchase at an online retailer. The app's built-in marketplace even allows users to sell their gently-used fashion items for extra cash. The underlying goal of the app is to help fashion consumers purchase the right size the first time, reducing online returns, shipping, and environmental waste.

"Less online returns means lower costs and less harmful textile waste ending up in landfills," says PeerModel co-founder Edwin Luma. "Given the current popularity of fast fashion, and the ability to ship internationally, this is a growing global issue."

Clothing sizes are not standardized, making online shopping tough for consumers--even for the brands they know and love. Many people order multiple sizes at once, and return the sizes that do not fit, in a costly and wasteful workaround. Others are unable, or cannot be bothered to, deal with the cumbersome return process, and end up with a closet of unworn clothing that does not fit.

"That's where PeerModel comes in," says Luma. "We connect people of similar height and weight to help them find fashion that fits. No more waiting in lines to return, no more shipping costs, and no more waste."

The app makes it easy to set up a profile with height, weight, and other stats, allowing people to search for "peer models" with similar body types. Users post photos of themselves and tag individual fashion items with useful information, including where the item was purchased, brand, size, and style. By getting the right-size clothing and footwear to the right people, PeerModel helps likeminded fashion buyers connect while also reducing online returns.

In addition to its goal of reducing textile and shipping waste, PeerModel also offers a way for people to generate income from clothes that would otherwise sit idly in the closet. The app includes a worldwide marketplace where fashion buyers and sellers can offer unwanted clothing items for sale locally, instead of returning the items to a retailer. The transaction and arrangements take place offline, and the app does not charge any fees.
