How to Choose Clothes Online

Before you put something in the shopping cart, do a mini-study. It will take time, but it will save you from wasting money.

  1. Focus on measurements

A beginner’s mistake in online shopping is to focus only on the specified size. The parameters of the figure for which items with the same marking are designed can vary greatly depending on the brand in What To Wear Today.

Therefore, you need to open the size chart of a specific brand and determine by your own standards what is right for you. Ideally, it is good to refresh the measurements before ordering, since you can always get better or lose weight. It’s best to ask someone to measure you so that you can stand up straight and not spin around.

This also works for shoes: be sure to take measurements. Stand on a piece of paper, circle the foot, and then measure the distance from the middle of the heel to the most prominent part of the thumb. If you can choose the width of the shoes on the website, measure the width of the foot as well.

  1. Be aware of the features of your figure

It is not at all about the fact that everyone immediately needs to hide some shortcomings, including non-existent ones. Understanding the nuances of the figure will help you choose the right size and not miss the thing.

For example, if you are a woman with steep hips and the thinnest waist, it will be difficult for you to pick up a pencil skirt without fitting, since both parameters are important here. But for a sun skirt, only the waist circumference is important, the probability of error is minimal.

  1. Remember: more is better than less

A thing that is slightly large can hardly be called a completely unsuccessful purchase. It can be sewn in the right places, redone or worn as an oversize. Clothes that are small can only be put on the shelf. So, if in doubt between the two sizes, choose the one that is larger.

For shoes, this advice does not always work. Sneakers with laces or winter warm boots, if you make a mistake by half a size, can sit comfortably, but model shoes — alas.

It’s good if customers can share their opinions directly on the website. If not, don’t give up. Look for reviews on the Internet by picture, article and name.
