If you’ve had to face the awkward and often embarrassing experience that is trying on new swimmers lately, then first of all we’d like to salute you because hoo boy, the process is not normally very fun.
Sizing can be tricky AF to navigate, and inevitably you’ll always try on a style that will make you feel like a mud-soaked hippopotamus in a paddling pool instead of an incredibly stylish mermaid that looks like she belongs in the ocean. It’s shit, but that’s change room mirrors for you.
Thankfully, there’s now a new technology that can eclipse all the dodgy ‘hope for the best that this size is the right one’ kind of kerfuffles you’ve been having. Ultra minimalist cozzies brand Ark Swimwear are sponsoring PEDESTRIAN.TV’s Selfish Weekend presented by The House of Angostura, which means you get the chance to check out their mPod booths for yourself.
No, it’s not some weird version of an iPod – mPods use mPort technology, which essentially uses a 3D scanner to map your body out and give you a personalised 3D scan to determine what the best fitting swimmers would be – all down to your precise measurements.
It uses fancy as fuck infrared sensors to get your entire measurements (we’re talking over 200,000 data points) in literal seconds, so you don’t have to faff about trying on different shit that you probably won’t even like anyway. Just strut on out in a 10/10 suit.
Swimwear shopping has always been a big problem for me body-image wise, so making it easier in any way is an absolute YES from me. If you wanna try out the tech for yourself, head HERE and grab tix to PEDESTRIAN.TV’s Selfish Weekend presented by The House of Angostura.
You’ll be able to get your scan and measurements sorted, as well as hear talks from some seriously cool folk, watch a vibrator race and score a pretty sick gift bag.
You know you want to.
You won’t be walking away from this weekend empty handed, folks, thanks to our amazing sponsors fillin’ up your complimentary gift bag: The House of Angostura, Swarovski, ark swimwear, boohoo, McVitie’s Flipz , Horny Goat Weed, Yo Pro, Santa Vittoria, HASK, Fitness Show, Lifestyles & Full Time Flex.
