BOENNIGHEIM, Germany (May 14, 2024) – An innovative web application now enables independent, flexible and digital fitting for workwear. Elis, a textile service provider, is using Sizekick's AI-based technology to offer personalized size recommendations based on individual body measurements. Sizekick’s AI software was developed with Hohenstein’s Digital Fitting Team.

Elis' partnership with Sizekick and the use of its AI-based technology brings pioneering innovation to the workwear industry. Sizekick's artificial intelligence not only considers a user’s exact body measurements but also the item’s fit. For product and fit analysis, Sizekick relies on the expertise of Hohenstein, which has been supporting the apparel industry for more than 75 years.

The web application uses a two-stage process to determine the right size for garments: First, the customer chooses from realistic body shapes suggested by BodyFinder. Sizing is then completed with BodyScanner, a video-based body scan using a smartphone camera. The data is transmitted and calculated anonymously, so Elis only views the correct clothing size. The user-friendly process only takes a few minutes.

"We rely on new technology to provide our customers with a high level of flexibility and efficiency, making the fitting process as simple as possible," explains Elis Managing Director Sascha Wiemer. "Through the collaboration with Sizekick and the support from Hohenstein, our customers' employees can determine the right size for their workwear within minutes—anytime, anywhere. This leaves more time for core business."

David Oldeen, co-founder and CEO of Sizekick, adds: "We are very excited to finally offer Elis' customers a digital way to try on new workwear, saving them valuable time. Our joint launch represents a truly innovative milestone for the entire workwear industry by optimally combining technology and user experience."

"We are very excited to support this innovative solution for the workwear industry with fit expertise built in from the start," says Simone Morlock, Head of Digital Fitting Lab at Hohenstein. "Each Elis garment in the Sizekick app has undergone a fit analysis by Hohenstein's fitting team. We helped develop the size fundamentals for the fitting processes and, most importantly, for finding the perfect size. Size recommendations based on individual body measurements can be successfully implemented with focused precision in body measurements and clothing dimensions.”
