Our 3D measuring technology extracts your measurements through two photos of your body. Your measurements and fit profile are generated through May’d Fit’s algorithms and sizing database to ensure that all garments will be altered to your customized measurements and fit preferences by our expert tailors. Read about How it Works Step by Step.

Our proprietary algorithms factor in your body proportions, fit preferences, dimensions of your ill-fitting garment, and your unique body measurements to calculate the precise amount to alter at each part of the ill-fitting garment.  
 
Our algorithms are not only based on engineered precision but also a sophisticated understanding of body shapes and proportions. We respect the art of garment design and construction, and we believe that the best clothing alterations are the ones that don’t look altered at all. From our data engineers to our expert tailors, everyone that touches May’d Fit’s service chain is passionate and knowledgeable about bringing you quality and precise alterations for your perfect fit.

Our 3D measuring technology boasts a 99% accuracy rate with less than an inch deviation. The results are as accurate as if an expert tailor were taking measurements of your body with a measuring tape! Be sure to read and follow the instructions, as it will affect the accuracy of the results.

Choose the "hem" alteration to shorten the length of a garment that is too long ie. pants, dresses, or sleeves. Choose the “contour body” alteration to change a shapeless blouse, dress, or jumpsuit to flatter the shape of your body. Read more about the list of alterations here. Still have questions?

It’s simple! We outline our fabric tiers by materials from the most common and easiest to alter (first tier) to more delicate fabrics that take more skill and time to alter. If you have trouble determining what material your garments are made of check out our comprehensive guide here. If your garment made of two tiers of fabric material, we will go with the fabric tier that the garment is mostly constructed of. If you choose the wrong fabric tier don’t worry about it, we will adjust and charge/refund you accordingly after we have received your order. Read more about our adjustment policy here.

Some clothes, yes. Most clothes no. This depends on the amount of hem allowance the garment provides. (Meaning the cloth in the seams, that tailors are able to let out.)  Keep in mind MOST clothing can only be let out a couple of inches. We cannot guarantee that your clothes can be let out unless we are able to evaluate the hem allowance. In the case your items of clothing cannot be let out, you will simply pay for shipping and not charged for the cost of the alteration. 

It is always easier to alter something to make it smaller than to enlarge it because usually there isn't extra cloth in the garment to do so. This means if you are tall instead of “letting the seam out” to fit your length, you are better off buying something that fits your length and have the “waist taken in”. The same logic works for other garments, it is always better to size up and buy a larger garment and to take in the parts of the garment that don't flatter your body. Read more about common fit problems here and the alterations that could work for you.
