Sometimes after getting the wrong product, it’s a hassle to send them back to get the right size, and sometimes you forget to return along with the busy life schedule. Eventually, you throw out the clothes which you bought so eagerly online. There are some tips below which might help you not to throw them out.
- Know your measurements
It’s very important to know your measurements before ordering online. While ordering, sizes vary by brands, giving your measurements in centimeters than the actual dress size. You should measure your bust, waist, hips by taking measurements of chest, belly button, and waist, respectively. Note them down and give them to online stores while ordering.

Before placing an order, make sure you know the sizing information of the stores. Read the information on the website and determine the size which would fit. Please don’t ignore it. On the information, the centimeters would be there along with the size. So be sure to order using the centimeter measurements which would fit you best.
- Know the difference between misses and juniors
Some stores differentiate clothes by misses and juniors. Misses are for the woman who has an hourglass body type and has 2, 4, 6, 8 sizes. It means there’s more space to fit in the waist and bust area,
whereas junior is for the smaller and boyish frames with 1, 3, 5, 7 sizes. It means there’s less space in bust and waist areas. So, look which store sells misses and juniors since it would have a huge impact on how clothes fit you.
- Always order two
Always buy from an online store that has a return policy. A good store will always be up to pay for returns. So, to avoid the wrong clothing measurements, always order the same two garments in different sizes. Return the one which doesn’t fit and get your money back.
- Read the reviews
Reading reviewing is very important. Always read the reviews instead of just seeing how many there are. Reviews offer in-depth knowledge about the product you’re buying. Reviews would help analyze the dress texture, the color tone, and its fitting when there are many reviews sift from 5-star to 1-star reviews. These reviews often share a detailed opinion of the dress. Look for the models who wore the dress with a similar body type as yours. And, this would act as a visual representation of how it would look on you.
- Always take the bigger size when in doubt
When you are confused between two sizes, it is always better to choose the bigger one. You can easily alter the dress because of the extra material, but it is always harder to add extra material to small clothes.
You can save a lot if you buy things online. The only difficulty is not knowing whether the dress would fit on which I have already given the tips to choose the best.
