This paper describes the two innovations underpinning Kidsize concept and presents the results of their validation. The first one is a mobile phone app to measure a child in 3D by taking two pictures. This new method is more accurate and consistent than an untrained person using a measuring tape at home or in the shop. The second one is an expert system that recommends the size that best fits the child and assesses the fit of the garment at different body areas. Project results show that it can provide nearly 90% right size recommendations, thus outperforming existing methods like age- or height-based size guides, which achieve 40 and 60% right recommendations respectively.
