    Swishing is great and to be able to swish 24/7 online is even better. Check out loving this new site. It is totally free to join, list and swap items (just pay postage). They have this unique Mirror Match function where you can search for members with the same body dimensions as you.

    I have recently become very interested in swishing, swapping clothes unwanted clothes for garments you love, and have been to many swishing parties and yesterday I came across a fab new website where you can swap clothes online for free! They have a fabulous selection of designers and you win swapping points for the clothes you send in! I’ve got a lovely new dress and a leather bag! I’m telling all my friends because the more people that join the more people I will have to swap clothes with! It’s like a cool ebay and its free! Super! visit
