We introduce ShapeMate, a framework for human body shape estimation and classification for on-line fashion applications. Given a single image of a subject our framework is able to simultaneously estimate detailed 3D human body shape and compute foreground segmentation with minimal user input. Once the body shape has been estimated, various semantic parameters are extracted for garment size and style recommendation. Preliminary results demonstrate that a single image holds enough information for accurate shape classification.
