The use of virtual models can give you a whole new shopping experience. With a virtual model, you create a model of yourself and are then allowed to “try on” an array of clothes. Many people like to use virtual models to bypass going to the clothing store. Another fun aspect is that you may want to try on clothing that you wouldn’t normally do in person. It can be an opportunity to expand your horizons and look at fashions that are possibly a little outside your comfort zone. There are many magazines and e-tailers that use My Virtual Model™. Try Good Housekeeping, Lands' End, Marie Claire or Sears to start or simply go to to access clothing from several different stores.

    Create your virtual model. First create a username and password. Then just fill in the fields for height, weight, etc. Choose your hair style, colour, and body shape. This is a fun process that is very easy. Just fill in the blanks.

    After you’ve created your model, you’re ready to shop. Click “Dress Up” or “Dressing Room,” depending on the website you’re on.

    Use the drop down menus to select skirts, tops, jeans, trousers, blazers…there are many options to choose from, with several choices in each category.

    When you see a piece of clothing you like, click it. It may take a moment for the page to load, but the piece of clothing will be on your model.
