Have you ever faced the frustration of waiting for an apparel you ordered from a website a few days ago, just to find that it looks disastrous over you? Many have been annoyed due to the differing weights and measurements of the user and the model depicted, and ultimately they have to press the return button. It's a tough situation for the providers as well, since they have to arrange for the return, while earning nothing.
