What other Shoppers have to say: I have not heard much in a negative way about Jaycyn. I do hear shoppers wondering a lot about the Sizing Audits (S.A.) and if they are difficult? I have not performed the Sizing Audits., so I don’t know their true difficulty but I have done the Purchase and Return Shops. Once you have a done a few, they get faster and more familiar.
