Can Magento track inventory on a per option basis?

First I just joined the forum and I LOVE what I’ve seen of magento so far. We presently are using another open source shopping cart (not sure if I can mention the name sooo) it starts with a Z. lol

Now the issue/question, we are a lingerie shop and have over 400 products all with different sizes and color options. The work around I have found so far is assign everything a single option such as 38 - black, 38 - white, 38 - red, 40 - black, etc. you get the point. Then I have to check the stock and add or delete an option depending on whether it is available or not. This is not elegant but it works to some extent.

Can magento keep track of stock on a per option basis so if a size 38 bra in black is sold out, the 38 in red or white would still be available?

From what I’ve seen from the import and export features, it is still going to be easier. Just wondering or maybe a suggestion.

Thank you,
Jim

I have the same concern as I am looking to start a new online store.  Can I set inventory by attribute such as size? 

Any answers?

Thanks

Jason

I have built a couple sites with exactly what you describe.

Example here:
http://shop.specialopspaintball.com/broadsword-6-vest-black.html

You can have multiple options like color and size on one page as well.

Yes it can, if you use configurable products.
