Walmart Rolls Out "Choose My Model," a Tech Tool to Help Shoppers Try on Clothes Without Actually Trying Them On
Walmart shoppers have a new reason to skip the fitting room. Instead of trying on a pile of clothing, they can turn to a high-tech tool on the retailer's website and app to do the heavy lifting.

The new tool, Choose My Model, allows a shopper to pick a person who resembles her height, shape, and skin tone. The feature, powered by computer vision and artificial intelligence, shows how a clothing item would flow and fit on a similar body.

"Everything comes back to providing the customer with the confidence to make that purchase," said Denise Incandela, executive vice president of apparel and private brands for Walmart U.S. "We want to have a best in class shopping experience online and we feel like this is shopping of the future and we wanted to lead the way."
