The smartphone craze has sparked a myriad of helpful applications tailored to suit the everyday needs of women. Within the hundreds of thousands of options featured on the Apple App Store, it’s almost impossible to sift through them all successfully. But when it comes to the sea of useful and relevant style solutions, a couple of sparkling gems of good fortune present themselves as true blessings, in addition to being appropriately priced. If you’re in search for help with proper-fitting apparel, look no further; there are apps for that.
MySizeFinder, made available last month, aids the time-tight shopper by translating sizes between brands. One store’s medium is another store’s small, and MySizeFinder allows you to select clothes in the perfect fit without even trying them on. By entering your chest, waist, and hip measurements, you can easily browse through dozens of retailers and labels to discern your correct sizes. The 99-cent app makes online shopping a breeze, and takes the torture out of in-store visits when waiting in line for a fitting room. Though currently limited to women’s clothing, MySizeFinder is also perfect for gift hunting. With the unique ability to add multiple (and infinite) users, you can instantly find and store your friends’ proportions for events such as birthdays and holidays.

Claiming to be “an essential fitting-room companion,” the app also offers tips and suggestions for tough situations such as tight bands or too-small cups. Bra-Fitter provides a wealth of information, ranging from style to international sizing systems. For only $1.99, you could tote this handy guide with you wherever you go, prepared for unscheduled mall outings and planned trips alike.
