Canada-based My Virtual Model Inc, leading developers of online visualisation and sizing technologies, today announced a partnership with Plussize.com, a leading online shopping destination for plus-sized women.

Plussize.com is an online shopping mall that sells select collections from more than 40 leading retailers, including Nordstrom, Eddie Bauer and LL Bean, specifically to women sized 12 and up.

The addition of the My Virtual Model Dressing Room will enable women to "try on" clothes before by keying in information about their height, weight, hairstyle and hair colour. The process takes about two minutes to complete, with each password-protected user profile saved for unlimited repeat use.

Elisabeth by Liz Claiborne Inc will be the first retail partner to be included in Plussize.com's My Virtual Model Dressing Room early next year.

Brad Lenz, vice president of e-commerce for Liz Claiborne, said: "Elisabeth.com expects the Plussize.com My Virtual Model Dressing Room to support Elisabeth's commitment to provide consumers with a superior online shopping experience.

"Plussize.com has been an effective advertising vehicle for Elisabeth.com and the addition of My Virtual Model technology will enhance that effectiveness."
