Have you ever wished there was some way to know if the jeans you’re about to order online will actually be a good fit for you? Someone you could consult, like a good friend who has the same pair and can tell you her experience. Enter Fitbay: the new social media site that’s connecting body doubles around the world, to better match you with your perfect fashion fit! Christian Wylonis is the innovator behind this new Copenhagen-born, New York-based platform, and on today’s show, Christian will talk about how Fitbay functions as a social media/fashion service, the feedback and data it gathers in order to find users’ ideal styles, some of the label trends and patterns that the Fitbay team have noticed during the site’s beta phase, and more.

Plus, I’ve got a playlist full of songs from some of this year’s best releases, including tracks from Lia Ices, Sharon Van Etten, The Melodic, and Sylvan Esso. So join us this hour on BreakThru Radio to find out how you can become a more savvy & “fit” online shopper!
