Woman’s genius online shopping trick goes viral

Woman’s genius online shopping trick goes viral

How many times have you purchased something online, only to wish that you could try it with a specific outfit first?

Or maybe you’ve ordered something, feeling overly confident about your amazing new purchase only for it to arrive and look completely different to what you had imagined.

If you’re one of those people, then this clever hack is one you want to try.

One woman, named Megan who works for the radio station ZM in Auckland, revealed her trick in a video which was posted to the station’s Facebook page.

Megan prints out a full length photo of herself and cuts off the feet so she can see how the outfit looks with various different shoes.

“Megan’s online shoe shopping trick it too good,” said the caption of the video.

Many commenters agreed labelling the hack “genius” and “game-changing”.

The cut out is laminated, ensuring it lasts a while so she can get the most use out of it.

The clip quickly went viral, gaining over 14,000 likes, 45,000 comments and over 2.5 million views.

And even though it won’t help with testing the comfort of online shopping purchases, it will minimise the risk of making some terrible fashion choices.
