Big Day Release: Magento Size Assistant

Magento Size Assistant is a user-friendly way to guide your customers through the many discrepancies between sizing systems and the differences between manufacturers. The user defines his/her measurements taken on the body in mm, cm or inches and the assistant displays the proper clothing size. The visitor next clicks the size icon and the product is added to cart. Widely used standard sizes and measurements are defined in the extension. Any parameters can be easily added in the admin area.

Key features:

  • Size assistant on product pages
  • Most sizes and measurements already configured
  • The user defines parameters in cm or inches
  • Easy to add sizes
  • Possibility of customizing the assistant popup

How does it work?

Standard sizing has never been very standard and Size Assistant is a very useful and user-friendly feature to get the fit that’s just right. The customer clicks the Size Assistant on the product page, defines his/her body parameters and the extension displays the correct size. Size icon appears and the user simply clicks it to add the product to cart.

Size charts may be too complicated or confusing for many people. Size Assistant is flexible and interactive. Standard sizes and measurements are already configured in the extension. The admin, however, can add own parameters easily. If the exact size is not found, the system displays the approximate size. If the size is out of stock, it’s still displayed but is a grey color and without a possibility of adding to cart.

Log in to the admin panel, and we will show all you may need to configure.

Go to Catalog -> Sizes -> Standards. You can configure standard sizes here.

In the Calculation Settings area, enter possible deviations. For example, if the measurements for the L size are 100-200 and the user enters 210, the L size will still be displayed as a recommended one. Select the number of dimensions it’s possible to deviate from and deviation in percent.

Finally, assign categories to products.

  1. Magento size asssistant is a smart way to information your coustmers through the purchasing procedure.

  2. Hi Andrei,

    I noticed it’s supported until 1.7 version. Any plans on updating it to the latest version? Or is it working already?

    Also, what if there isn’t an ideal size, is it possible to take the customers size definitions in account? I think currently it returns as “no ideal size”.
