Bold Metrics Inc. (BMI) has created a suite of AI technologies that allows brands to accurately predict customer body measurements and relate them to garment specifications, to enable body-relative apparel design. Historically, apparel sizes have been generated in the absence of customer-driven body data. This has lead to a worldwide apparel waste problem caused by a high rate of returns coupled with a bad consumer experience around fit and sizing, often amplified online. Connecting customer body data to impact intelligent design upstream, before the apparel product hits the market, is the missing link. The net impact of Bold Metrics is a data-driven manufacturing and design process, resulting in more efficient, smarter products that are tailored to a brand's specific customer demographic. Along with garment sizing optimizations, the downstream experience becomes more customer-driven, leading to a significant reduction in returns. Bold Metrics works with some of the world’s largest brands, retailers and clothing manufacturers in the US, Europe and Asia, and is based in San Francisco, CA.
