The Trillion-Dollar Returns Problem
It’s no secret that the returns problem in online shopping is BIG. In fact, it’s a Trillion-Dollars BIG.
The numbers back this up. 1 in 3 online purchases is being returned, with 70% of those returns related to sizing, fit or style.
Not only do shoppers hate this, but it's also bleeding the profit lines of businesses as well.

ZILIO makes me confident in purchasing clothes online, especially since I always struggle with finding good fitting jeans. I may be biased because I'm tech-savvy but even mym who's terrible with technology also understood it really well too!

It’s a love-hate kind of thing.
We all love online shopping, yet most of us hate shopping online. Riddle me that.
Online shopping is amazing. It gives people access to any fashion brand in the world, creating more opportunities for people to find self-expression, beauty and confidence in themselves through fashion than ever before. The world really is your oyster, until those cool, manly gym shorts that you ordered ends up fitting you like a snug pair of cute booty shorts (although I must admit, I’d like to think that I pulled them off pretty well).
Real talk - no one knows how anything fits when they shop online and it ruins the online shopping experience for everyone, and that’s not okay. Especially when you know the potential online shopping has to offer. So, here’s to changing the game of online shopping. Here’s to no more surprise booty shorts.

The pandemic has also made this worse in recent years. In the United States alone, 5 Billion Pounds of returned goods ended up in landfills (The Guardian, 2020).
