Monday, June 9, 2008 Unique Apparel Shopping with Actual Models instead of Avatars has really come out with something cool. I have seen a number of Virtual Fit sites that allow you to create a custom avatar with your measurements/skin color/face shape, but these really come up short. The avatars may resemble you, but once you put the clothes on them it is pretty much a joke. You can match the colors, and rough style, but they don't give you a sense of how the clothes actually fit/look. allows you to choose a model with your body type (or your girlfriend/spouse). Then you choose the clothing which includes - underwear(knickers), thongs, lingerie, bras, shorts, garters, sportswear and more. After selecting the model and the clothes, you can make the model walk towards you to get a close up view and to turn around so you can see the back and sides.

If you are looking at sportswear (jogging bras) you no longer have to guess at the level of support that it offers. You can watch the model jog and you can see how it fits.

The current 5 models (all attractive) range from sizes 32A to 34F. The site is based in the UK, but ships to the US.

Thanks a lot! My boss caught me looking at this stuff at work! You should really put a NSFW warning here.

I have seen the avatar based sites, and I agree with you that they are not very helpful.

It would be great if knickerpicker expanded their selection to other types of apparel.

Thanks for your kind words.

Here at KnickerPicker we are still looking at ways to improve the site, we have a few new ideas for September!
