Hello All 🙂
There many advantages o buying clothes online. Such advantages include; you don’t have to wait in line, it’s easy, stress-free, you don’t have to leave the house plus you get a lot of offers. With that comes the worry that you might not get that perfect fit. Most products on online shopping need only to be of quality but with clothing, they need to fit. With numbers, letters and vanity sizing they go a long way in helping you determine which size fits you. Below are tips that will greatly help you in getting the right fit while at the same time outsmarting confusing online shopping sizes.
Know your measurements:This is the most important step before you go buying clothes online. Most designers and labels usually use vanity sizes. One company size 10 will be another size 8. Therefore, the best way to get the right fit is to have your own measurements. You can have a professional take them or you can do it yourself.
Check for retailers and note their size charts: Size charts will be a great ally when shopping online since retailers carry different designers, clothing manufacturers and labels. If you’re buying from a custom clothier or a clothing store you only need to review their charts to get the right fit. At the same time, it is better to make notes on brands, retailers, and manufacturers you have bought before so you have a broad choice of purchase options. If you’re buying designer clothing, it’s better to check their website for the correct sizechart.
Look at the reviews: The best way to get to learn about that clothing product is to read the customer reviews. From here you can decide whether to purchase or not. Customers review will help you learn about the fit and quality from people who have purchased similar items. The clothing might look okay in the photo but it can be a bit tight on the bust or be loose on the hips or a combination of both.
Take note of the return or exchange policy: Online retailers usually give you a designated time frame for you to return the clothes. So it is better to be satisfied with their policy because some purchases are final sale. Be satisfied with their guarantee before you shop. Some questions worth asking is whether you have to pay the reshipping charges or the restocking fee. Take note of the shipping charges: It is better to buy several clothes at the same time since the cost will be low. At the same time, look for retailers that offer free shipping.
Look out for coupon sites and special offers: Before you go buying it is better to do a bit of sleuthing before you click purchase. It is better to check to find discount codes for different retailers.
Investigate item details: It is better to have knowledge of the item beforehand before you purchase. Different clothes have different handling styles. For example, if it’s dry clean or hand wash, that should help you in making a decision of whether to buy or not. Check out the material of the cloth you want to buy since this is essentially important. This is a great hint as to the quality and fit of the item
Be friends with your neighborhood tailor: It is not a must you return everything that doesn’t fit especially if you like an item. It is better to take it to a tailor for those minor adjustments. This works well if the clothing is a bit larger but if it is small there is no negotiation but to return it.
Edit your cart: Don’t make an impulsive purchase because you like an item. Firstly ask yourself if it is something you seriously need to wear. The great thing about online shopping is you can save items you want in your cart for up to 60 days. This will give time to reflect on the most important items to purchase. If you are in love with that dress after a few days go for it but if the allure is diminishing ditch it.
These tips will help you in avoiding getting or purchasing fashionable clothing that will be a bore in the long run or they might not fit. Search different online retailer sites to get value for your money. Don’t be in hurry to purchase. Now have a pleasant shopping experience.
