3 Ways to Determine Sizing When Shopping Online!

  1. Read Those Dimensions!

-I always go by dimensions because days end, I’d rather that something fit too big versus too small. Just remember, a larger size can be taken in and a smaller size has no wiggle room for letting a garment out. You will only be teasing yourself as you will most likely never wear it. Go with the size guide that most sites provide to find the closest fit.

  1. Read the Reviews!

-Most times, customer reviews will give you all the information that you need concerning an item. I usually judge the reviews based off a reoccurring theme. For instance, look for terminology or phrases like, “not true to size”, “size up/down” or “not true to color”, etc. Some reviewers will take it a step further and include photos to give you an actual idea of product quality.

  1. Go with Your Gut!

-Sometimes I’ll find an item that I’m crushing on with reviews that will swear by the product being endorsed, but something about it just doesn’t feel right to me. Why? While it may look amazing on the model or has a ton of 5-star reviews to support it, the reality is that what works for some, doesn’t always work for others. Sure, the item sparked your interest, but does the color or actual fit work for you? In this scenario, I’ve learned to just follow my intuition!

Overtime, I have developed the rules above as a blueprint due to the rise in online shopping. While you’ll always have items that fall under the “exception to the rule” category these tips definitely serve as a guideline in the avoidance of long lines or trips to the post office to drop off a return.

Until next time, Happy Online Shopping Swaginista’s!!!
