Find the Perfect Denim Jeans for your Body Type with Me-Ality.
I was invited by the Me-Ality folks to try out the newest technology in denim fit today at Bloomingdale’s in Santa Monica and I was pretty blown away by how great this machine works. I was of course pretty skeptical that a machine could actually find jeans that fit my body based on scanning around me twice fully clothed for 10 seconds, but I was proven wrong.
When the machine finished scanning my body, I was given a 25 pair denim recommendation list categorized by best fit and cut of the denim. The Bloomingdale’s denim staff located the denim for me and I was whisked away to the dressing room to try the Me-Ality recommendations.
The machine picked out denim sizes for me that I never would have chosen for myself. I usually pick out 27 in denim for myself, but the machine picked out 26 in a few brands as well as 27 in other brands for me. The brands and denim cuts that Me-Ality chose for me were not what I usually would have chosen for myself, but upon trying 3 pairs of the first 25 picks for me, I confirmed that the Me-Ality program really does work.
I compared my own picks in the denim department from today against the picks that the Me-Ality program chose for me and the fits were hands down better than the styles that I chose for myself. This was sort of an amazing discovery for me like when you get properly fitted for a bra for the first time ever. Who knew that my denim was sized 1 size too large in many of my favorite brands all of this time and who knew that ankle length side zip denim jeans was not the most flattering for my body type and petite frame? Well I found out today at the Me-Ality station at Bloomingdale’s.
Here is what The Me-Ality station chose for me and I must say the fit of these jeans were very flattering. To give you an idea about these denim jeans – I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and about 120 pounds give or take depending on what I eat on a given day.
1. AG Denim Prima higher rise stilt skinny jeans in Jetsetter size 27 – these were the softest and most flattering skinny jeans I have ever tried on. I looked 10 pounds slimmer in them. Because I am shorter in the inseam, I would have to get these taken in about 2 inches or I could wear a pair of platforms. But the fit on these jeans were right on.
2. 7 for All Mankind Kimmie Bootcut Jeans in size 26 – Midnight – these were seriously the last jeans I would have picked for myself since I have not bought a pair of bootcut jeans since skinny jeans became the IT style, but these bootcut jeans were the most flattering jeans I had put on in a long time. These jeans hugged me in all the right places and then flared out slightly hence the name bootcut to elongate my legs. I would just need to go to the tailor to take in the inseam by 2 inches in these since the length on most jeans are for average height women of 5 feet 5 inches tall.

3. Citizens of Humanity Ava Straight Leg in size 27 fit perfectly. As soon as I put this pair of denim on I just could not believe how good I looked in them. The straight leg did not make me look hippy or large in the thigh area and the fit was perfect.
After trying on the first 3 picks from the Me-Ality machine I was hooked and convinced that this was definitely the new way to buy denim from now on. I was given a 25 selection denim print out created just for me to take home with me so I could come back anytime and buy denim without hassle. If you are in a Bloomingdale’s in any of the 5 areas where the Me-Ality machines are located definitely try it out. I am really happy I got to try it as soon as it arrived in the store.
