Nowadays many activities are occurring online due to the pandemic. Shopping is included in this list, particularly clothes shopping. If you want to buy designer clothes online, do this carefully. You may find it tough to visit a store and try stuff on. People are now more conscious of the spread of germs. This is why most of us decide to shop online. If you are new to this, you may find it tough not being able to try the clothes on in the store.
The following are some tips which aim to help you choose clothes online:
Measure yourself properly
When shopping in a store, one can guess what size will fit according to the size they wear in other garments. When shopping online, it is important to choose a size that is based on your measurements so that you can get the best fit.
Generally, for most clothing types, it is necessary to know the below measurements:
Chest measurement- Measure at the fullest area of the bust. It is better to do this whilst wearing the bra that you plan to wear with the garment.
Waist measurement- Consider the narrowest area of the waist here. It may not be the area that you wear your pants.
Hips measurement- Consider the fullest part of the hips along with butt. You can measure waist along with hips when sitting down for garments that have little or no stretch so that you can get something that will be comfortable when sitting.
Inseam- Women’s clothing often has three sizes when looking at inseam, i.e. petite, standard, as well as tall.
Look at size charts and reviews
The measurements you have gotten, compare these with size charts as well as reviews. If the site has different brands, you may have to consider the size chart upon the designer’s site.
Some websites have some handy tools. They may inform you about how tall the model is as well as what size she is wearing. They may provide some reviews as well.
Reviews help people know whether an outfit is actually “true to size”. If there are people wearing the clothes that you want, you should scroll through these photos to get an idea of how it looks.
Know about fabrics
It is tough to know what some garments feels like when looking online. For example, if you wish to get fitted pants which are not uncomfortable, you may want something that has some stretch.
Look in the closet to check out the different fabrics that you have. The ones that you do not wear due to them not being comfortable, write the fabric type from its tag. Avoid buying stuff made from this fabric.
Check out return policies
Carefully review the present return policy that the store has. Some retailers may have changed their return policies due to COVID-19. Know the return deadlines in case you have to return something.
There are many options present online for buying clothes. Check the website carefully and be satisfied before getting anything.
