Awesome New Body Scanner Takes the Stress Out of Shopping for Jeans

jeansThe future is here and it's glorious -- there's now a body scanning machine that will tell you what kind of jeans will work best for your shape. All you do is step into the Bodymetrics booth and let the computer tell you what cut of denim will most flatter your hot bod. It will even recommend brands! Amazing.

I don't know about you, but I dread shopping for new jeans. Taking 10 pairs into a Bloomingdale's dressing room is my idea of hell. But it sounds like all our problems will be solved with this fancy new scanner thing-a-ma-gig. In under a minute we'll be told what pairs to go pick up and try on. Best part? The scanner has a 90 percent success rate. This thing is going to be life changing.


No more sweaty sessions in stores, hauling pair after pair to a fluorescently lit dressing room only to discover that nothing you picked up makes you look or feel good. And there are so many cut options out there, it's hard to know without putting them on what will and won't work. If you like the look of a certain pair of jeans, you have to bring like six different cuts to try on because you're not sure if you like high-rise or mid-rise or low-rise or cigarette or skinny or straight or curvy or reverse curvy or boot-cut or fitted waist or loose waist ... you get the point.

Those days might be over, though, my friends. The Bodymetrics machines will soon be in 100 stores nationwide. What stores exactly remain to be seen, but if you're in a big enough market, I'm sure your city will get one. All you gotta do is get scanned once and your jeans problem is solved for a lifetime (or for however long you keep that same figure).

Frankly, the Bodymetric scanner is a godsend and I'd like to shake the hand of the woman who came up with this idea. This is the best news since the cupcake vending machines. Things in 2012 rock.

Do you like the sound of the Bodymetrics scanner?
