My Size Fits

The women brands often follow various measuring systems. It is hard to find the right dress to fit without the standard sizes. It is not a problem anymore with the search engine What Size Am I. Users can add their measurements on bust, waist and hips, choose UK or US system, select cm or inches system, and cursor over shops to see what the sizes they offer. The description about how to measure also provides tips for searching suitable numbers. A special column, Whose Size 8 Are You Wearing, was shown on  the New York Times (April 24, 2011), with which a static info-graphics on the disparity in size between different brands has been shown. The beautiful arcs representing the curvature of each brand and its design. Those visualization representations are really cool~
