My worst audience is my mirror.

If you visit the Trafford Centre regularly you will probably know they were hosting their own fashion week, last week. Me and the hubby popped up on Sunday, just for a browse and to start Christmas shopping (ergh!). 

To cut a long story short, I spotted they were doing make up etc. outside Topshop, so I popped along and got my make up done from Urban Decay, unfortunately I didn't get a photo! But the MUA used a really gorgeous eye shadow, I've never bought from UD before, so I think I need to get investing, after the spending ban of course.

Along side the make up was a body scanner. I have never seen one of these before, but of course I wanted to have a go. So basically you go in, strip down to your undies (I so wish I knew this before hand, I had the most unattractive underwear one EVER), get weighed/measured and in you go. The scanner itself is basically as black room with lots of little lights. I don't have a clue how it works, but literally within about 60 seconds it was complete.

I know, you might be thinking, whats the point? Well the idea is that you can tailor your clothes to your measurements and get the perfect fit!

Before you see the photos, I would just like to clarify a) the measurements are in cm's and b) the scanner squashes you down and stretches you out...

The thing I'm most excited about, is using these measurements I can FINALLY get a pair of jeans that actually fit! My legs are really small, and I always find jeans need rolling up, I spoke to the lady after the scan and she suggested Dorothy Perkins Petite Range, so I'm really excited to go have a look!

Have you ever had this done?

  1. Wow this is so cool! I wanna have this done, I have trouble with jeans too, big hips, skinnier legs, bit taller than average haha so annoying to find jeans that fit! xxx

  2. Never heard of this before, seems like an amazing thing to do though, not many women know their correct sizes! Would appreciate if you visited my blog xx
