Started in Hanmer Springs, New Zealand, Sizexchange.com solves the problem body downsizers face of finding clothing to wear whilst reaching their goal weight. It also solves the problem parents face of finding clothes that fit as their children constantly grow out of them. Founded by New Zealand-based Becky Siame the website allows people transitioning through sizes to purchase clothing that they will only wear for a short time, via a simple points system. Dennis and Autumn Peele of Seattle Washington, are excited that now America can take advantage of this exciting concept that's been tearing it up in NZ and Australia.
Sizexchange.com is an online clothes exchange website, where subscribed members can exchange their clothes using exchange Points. A key element is that the exchange is cash free, that is, you earn points through sales and use those points for purchases. Once a subscriber transitions to another size, they can list their no longer needed clothing on the Sizexchange.com website, via our unique count down points system. The points earned can then be used to purchase other sizes that they will only wear for a short time, as they continue to lose weight, or otherwise grow out of them.
"The down side to my losing 50 pounds was discovering I had nothing to wear in my size", says Autumn Peele, from Sizexchange, US, "I was thrilled when I came upon Sizexchange.com only to find it was not yet in the US. After contacting Ms Siame and realizing we shared the same passion and vision for this concept we teamed up... My teenage girls are excited about swapping free clothes and accessories via the website. At the moment, they are our number 1 promoters amongst their friends"
"Its like a virtual shopping mall, where you can get FREE clothes!" says 16-year-old Miss Carly Peele, "It's great! My friends love it."
"Going through mom's clothes I was amazed she had nearly 100 items that she didn't wear any more that were in great condition," says Miss Casey Peele, "I realized that I have lots of clothes in my closet that I am not wearing also. Now, instead of asking mom for money I can upload my own clothes and swap with other teens."
"Although the concept was first presented to me as an unique way of facilitating clothes exchanges between women" says Mr. Peele, "I realized the market could include men. Men shop too! It's a unique opportunity for families to replace their wardrobes with minimum cost. Sizexchange.com offers a solution during the current economic conditions where families are tightening up their budgets to make ends meet."
Sizexchange.com is more than just a website...it's a lifestyle, a vibrant clothes swapping community where members can connect through photos, discussion groups, and blogs. In addition to finding great clothing there is also a panel of experts representing health, fitness, image, and lifestyle coaching.
Sizexchange.com brings traders together for mutual benefit. Unlike auction sites where the items are for sale and the sale prices can be driven higher by bidding, subscribed members of Sizexchange.com can browse other users wardrobes and watch their favorite items go DOWN in points. They must then grab their favorites before another 'watcher' does.
Sizexchange.com is an eco-friendly, cost-effective and fun way to shop. For a minimum monthly subscription fee members can enjoy a whole new wardrobe for their entire family and pay only the shipping/postage of the items they grab.
