I enjoy shopping in store because I can actually try on the clothes but sometimes shopping online has its only benefits (e.g. exclusive products and promo codes). However, one of the biggest challenge I always face when shopping online is time. The point about online shopping is saving time but I spend way too much time browsing and editing the shopping cart because I am so indecisive. So, I developed a system that can help me breeze through online shopping and hopefully it can help you.
1. Know your measurements.
Sizes vary depending on the brand, so unless the store uses True Fit sizing, you're going to take out you measuring tape and take note of your bust, waist hips and inseam. If you don't know how to do it, take a trip to your local tailor and have them do it for you.
2. Check the size charts.
Some stores carry multiple size (e.g. petite, tall, regular), so make sure you take a glimpse at the chart before checking out. Another thing you might want to look at is the size the model is wearing. Her height can sometimes give you reference of how long or short a piece actually is.
3. Read the reviews.
