BOSTON (WHDH) -- Shifting through racks to find the perfect pair of jeans can be a tough task with all the choices.
Now, there is a free service that promises to do the work for you in malls. 7News Anne Allred put it to the test.
Now at a mall near you, the scanning station, Me-Ality, 197 antennas scanning your shape so you can find the perfect pair of jeans.
Me-Ality is a free service that helps women with a process that was described as ‘evil.’
Some 7News viewers agreed to test it out. Michelle, Danielle and Erin stepped into Me-Ality, were scanned and used a computer to pick the jeans they were looking for: boot cut, skinny, mid-rise and so on. The computer prints out a list of a dozen jeans to try, telling them where to find the jeans and how much they cost.
All the stores on the printout are at the mall where you are scanned. But you may be wondering - how is this free?
When your shopping guide prints up, the vendors are getting charged for the service.
A service that Me-Ality claims is 99% accurate.
“I will be eager to see how well they look on me with the printout. The truth will be when I put them on.”
There are a multiple mall locations in Massachusetts that have the service. You can receive a printout of stores available at the mall or you can have a list emailed to you that would give you options for all stores in general. The service is also available to men and offers guides for jeans, pants, shirts and even dresses.
Anne Allred and the three 7News viewers received their printouts - next is the shopping trip.
