“There’s an app for that.” It’s a phrase we hear just about every day. And, well, it’s kind of true; there’s seemingly an app for everything from haircuts to drug paraphernalia delivery. It got us wondering: What shopping apps are out there? Answer: a ton. So we did a little sleuthing to find out the best and most worthwhile (no one wants a battery-sucker) apps out there. Whether you’re finally ready to find the right bra size, or you’re looking to sell the loot from your spring cleaning sesh, as much as we hate to say it … yes, there’s an app for that.
How it works: Measure yourself with the virtual sizing assistant, find your correct bra size (note: they have half-cups!), browse, and buy risk-free from your phone. Voila! Lingerie shopping made easy. Oh, and the app's free, too. Photo via iTunes.
Love an item but don't want to spring for it 'til it goes on sale? With this app, you can type in a garment's style code (the app shows you exactly where this is on a price tag), and the app tracks it for you. The second the item goes on sale (or the second a coupon code becomes available), you'll get a notification so you can snatch it. Plus, you can keep a virtual shopping list, so you'll never miss a deal again. Photo via iTunes.
Looking to sell some goods from your spring-cleaning sesh? Poshmark lets you easily buy and sell items from your closet. Plus, you can attend virtual shopping parties devoted to categories like designer handbags. Photo via iTunes.
It's basically fashion social media. Snap a pic, add a filter and tag the brand. What makes it different from Instagram: You can shop the posts. Tap the 'find it' button and Trendabl will search for similar products. Photo via iTunes.
This app is kind of like Google for shopping. If you know exactly what you want (read: a royal blue silk blouse for under $150), just input the details into the app, and it will scour the web for options that fit your criteria. Photo via iTunes.
