A Fab & Fitting New App Feature AND a Contest — UPDATE: WE’VE GOT OUR WINNERS!

blog-lead-04

Stumped on sizing? Foggy on fit? Worry no more — ‘Fit for Me’ is here to help! With this new community-powered feature for our app for iPhone®, you can find items reviewed by fellow friends who share the same sizing as you. Simply enter your own measurements, peruse the reviews to see how each item measures up, then add your faves right to your bag, wishlists, or love list!

Fit for Me is a terrific tool for finding the right size and fit, but we need your help to make it even better. Product reviews that include measurements and photos are what makes it tick, so the more reviews you write, the better it works for you and the rest of our community!

So, to celebrate this fab feature and to encourage more rad reviews, we’re hosting a contest! We’re giving away one $25 gift certificate each week from now until 1/8. Entering is easy — all you have to do is review items you’ve purchased or received as a gift, and include your measurements (made public) and the hashtag #forgoodmeasure in your review. Post your reviews now through 11 a.m. PT on 1/8, and voila — you’re entered!

Before you get started, read the deets:

  • Contest runs from now until 1/8/2014 at 11 a.m. PT.
  • Qualifying entries must be reviews of products you purchased or received as a gift and have not previously reviewed.
  • In your review, you must include your public measurements (select ‘Include My Measurements’ when writing your review), as well as the hashtag #forgoodmeasure somewhere in the body of your review.
  • You can submit as many product reviews as you’d like, but you may only write one review per item purchased or received.
  • Email submissions will not be accepted.
  • One winner will be chosen at random each week by our Community Team.
  • Each week’s winner will be selected from the entries submitted that week.
  • Each winner will be contacted via email every Friday throughout the duration of this contest, and all will be announced on 1/10 as an update to this post.
  • Contest is open to our entire awesome community, including our international pals!
  • Customers under the age of 18 must have parental permission to participate.
  • Don’t have an iPhone? That’s quite alright — anyone can participate!
  • Need more information? Check out our Official Contest Rules.

    I am so excited to enter! I just ordered stuff yesterday and look forward to reviewing them soon!

  2. ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 12:34 pm #

    And we’re so excited to read your reviews! Best of luck!

    I don’t have a smartphone, either Android or iPhone. Is this feature available online?

    • ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 2:05 pm #

      The Fit for Me feature is only currently available via our app for iPhone, but not to worry – you can still participate in the For Good Measure contest! Simply review items you’ve purchased or received as a gift, include your measurements (making sure to set them as public), and include the hashtag #forgoodmeasure in your review. Thanks for the great question, and good luck!

    Will the winners be chosen out of everyone who has submitted reviews the week prior to the drawing ONLY, or are the reviews submitted every week starting today included in each drawing? (Ex: If I submit a review tomorrow, am I only entered in the drawing next week, or will I be entered in the drawing every week up until Jan. 8th?)

    • ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 3:43 pm #

      Each Friday, we’ll be selecting a winner from the previous week only. So in order to be entered into a drawing for any given Friday, reviews should be submitted that same week. Since this contest started today, we’ll be making our first selection from reviews submitted between today and this coming Friday. Thanks for the excellent question!

    “Don’t have an iPhone? That’s quite alright — anyone can participate!” <- How do I do this…? I am just a lowly Android user.

    • ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 2:24 pm #

      Great question! Even without an iPhone, you can enter the For Good Measure contest using your home computer. All you have to do is review items you’ve purchased or received as a gift, include your measurements (making sure to set them as public), and include the hashtag #forgoodmeasure in your review. Best of luck!

    Will this work on my iPad? I can’t seem to find it in my app..

  7. Jessica 11/20/2013 at 1:58 pm #

    Does Fit for Me work on the iPad as well? Can’t seem to find it on my app..

    • ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 2:58 pm #

      Fit for Me is only available on the iPhone app right now. The good news is you can still enter the For Good Measure contest using your home computer!

  8. Eva 11/20/2013 at 2:57 pm #

    Does it count if we’ve already reviewed items in the past?

    • ModCloth 11/20/2013 at 6:42 pm #

      Unfortunately, only reviews submitted between 11/20/13 and 1/8/2014 can be entered into the contest. You’ve got seven weeks, though, so feel free to review away! Thanks for your question!

  9. Samantha Seltzer 11/20/2013 at 7:20 pm #

    So excited because I just made a purchase and I can review them! Also, it’s quite a coincidence that my school’s coed a cappella group (for which I auditioned and got called back) is called “For Good Measure.”

    • ModCloth 11/21/2013 at 12:02 pm #

      That is a coincidence! And we’re so excited to read your reviews – good luck, and thanks for participating!

  10. Laura 11/20/2013 at 10:49 pm #

    Crud! Is there a way to edit a review after you submitted it? I just reviewed a couple items and forgot to include the hashtag!

    • ModCloth 11/21/2013 at 1:03 pm #

      If you’d like to edit a review, feel free to e-mail our Community Team (community@modcloth.com) with your information and the edits or additions you’d like to make!

  11. 20somethingsimple 11/21/2013 at 5:02 pm #

    Can we review items that aren’t clothes (or items that were gifted to someone else and thus might not have our measurements) and be entered in the contest?

    • ModCloth 11/22/2013 at 7:14 am #

      Hi there! Any product review that includes your measurements (set to public) and the #forgoodmeasure hashtag will be entered into the contest. But of course, reviews of garments that you own and that include your measurements are the most useful in terms of helping out other community members!

    I’d love to leave a review for the B. Jones Style Skirt that I received yesterday AND LOVE, but it’s out of stock now and the reviews have been turned off. Will I have to wait for it to get back in stock before I can review?

    • ModCloth 11/26/2013 at 12:31 pm #

      Thanks so much for letting us know about this! I looked into the situation, and it turns out this item is temporarily on hold while some inventory issues are sorted out. I’ve been told that everything with this skirt should be up and running by the end of tomorrow. At that point, the reviews will be reactivated and you’ll be able to review this skirt and enter the contest! Good luck!

  13. Audrey Crippen 11/26/2013 at 6:25 am #

    What about items that don’t ask for measurements, like tights? They ask which size you purchased and I can share that.. If I review those with the hashtag, would those count?

    • ModCloth 11/26/2013 at 12:27 pm #

      Thanks for the great question! The only products that will be entered into the contest are apparel items (primarily clothing and shoes). So reviews for tights would count for the contest (as long as the #forgoodmeasure hashtag is included), but reviews for jewelry, accessories, home decor, and other non-apparel items would not. Happy reviewing!

  14. melissa 12/01/2013 at 9:53 pm #

    i just reviewed about 5 or 6 things without using the hashtag and then i found out about t his contest. there’s no way to change my reviews, right :( what a bummer.

    • ModCloth 12/02/2013 at 11:03 am #

      Hi there! We’d be happy to help you out here. Feel free to e-mail our Community Team (community@modcloth.com) with your information and the products you reviewed, and as long as you’ve already provided your measurements for the items, we can add the #forgoodmeasure hashtag to your reviews so they can be entered into the contest!

  15. Melissa Mack 12/04/2013 at 2:57 pm #

    Just a heads up! I submitted a review and included my measurements, but the app only allows me to have up to a 60″ hip measurement. Fortunately, that is my exact measurement – but I know people with bigger hips that order from ModCloth. Someone may need to tweak that on the app :)

    • ModCloth 12/05/2013 at 12:49 pm #

      What great feedback! I’ll forward this along to the team who built the app. Thanks so much for letting us know about this!

  16. wildefae 12/05/2013 at 11:04 am #

    Wow, I hope this comes to Android soon – this sounds so helpful!

    • ModCloth 12/06/2013 at 10:02 am #

      I’m glad to hear you’re excited about the Fit for Me app! Stay tuned for any future news about it, and feel free to participate in the For Good Measure contest!

  17. Tara O'Sullivan 12/31/2013 at 5:31 pm #

    I’m about 8,000 miles away from my most recent orders from ModCloth, so I’ll have to pass on this contest, sadly. :( I am, however, really looking forward to posting some reviews after I return from Australia!

    • ModCloth 01/02/2014 at 12:56 pm #

      I’m sorry you’re going to have to skip the contest, but we’re looking forward to reading your reviews in the future! Have a great time in Australia!

  18. Georgina Isabel 01/08/2014 at 12:51 pm #

    Hi! I reviewed several items last night, right on time before the end of the contest today. My reviews are still pending approval. Will they be considered towards this week’s contest? Thanks :)

    • ModCloth 01/10/2014 at 7:21 am #

      Hi Georgina! These reviews will absolutely be considered for the contest this week, since they were submitted by the deadline. Thanks for the great question, and good luck!

  19. Kimi 01/17/2014 at 12:21 pm #

    Haha! I have no idea why my step mom’s name is up there when I won. :) I guess you guys pulled it from a shipping address I had saved? The review was under my name. Thanks again for picking/drawing me!! :)

    Haha, I have no idea why my step mom’s name is on the list of winners when it was me that won. :) I guess the name was pulled from a shipping address I had saved? That’s pretty funny. Thank you again for drawing/picking me!!
