Shopping for petite women often involves grabbing a hand full of items, dragging them to the fitting room, trying them all on, only to have none of them fit. Disappointing right? I’m betting this handy little device will help days like these.
I want to use it to measure hard to fit areas like pant rises, that always give me trouble. Usually, I hold up an item of clothing, estimate the fit by eye, and am usually disappointed in the dressing room. Instead, I want to whip out my little measuring tape, measure the pant rise, and know before hand if it’s going to end up past my belly button. No need to schlep piles on pants into the dressing room anymore! Only the ones that measure up will make the cut.
I can also see this coming in handy for things like waist, shoulder, and arm hole opening measurements, which are usually hard to estimate by eye on a garment.
Anyone use these to make shopping easier?
