3 Amazing Tips for Picking Clothes Online

How amazing is online shopping? No queues, annoying crowds, or parking spot fees.

The advantages of picking stuff online are plenty, so it's no surprise that more people decide on picking their clothes that way.

What's more, on the internet you can find many more clothes shops. There are even sites where you can easily design your t-shirt printing or personalize your jumper. Good luck finding a physical shop that allows you to do that.

But are there any disadvantages to online shopping? There will be none if you follow these three amazing tips for picking clothes online.

1. Do Your Measurements

Many people decide not to shop online because they're not sure whether the clothes they buy will fit. If you're one of those people, you can stop worrying about that. Every piece of clothing on the internet comes with its exact measurements.

What does that mean to you? You can quickly check if the t-shirt or dress you want to buy is going to fit. All you need is a type of measure. You can easily measure yourself. You don't need to go to the dressing room.

Aside from measuring your waist, legs, and arm's length, you can also measure your clothes. By doing that, you can ensure that the piece of clothing you pick will be okay. The same thing applies to buying footwear.

Also, you don't have to measure yourself every time you're buying something online. You can do it once and then write it down. You'll be able to compare your notes with clothes measurements comfortably.

And if you don't want to measure yourself traditionally, some apps will do all the work for you. All they need is your full-body photo, and they'll be able to measure everything almost perfectly.

2. Research and Compare

If you're tired of running from shop to shop comparing clothes, prizes, and sizes, online shopping is here to help you. When you do your research online, all you need is a cup of coffee, wine, or whatever you like to drink, and a comfortable place to sit.

But let's say that you're sitting comfortably in front of your computer. With a cup of your favorite beverage next to you. Why is it so important to do in-depth research on online shops?

One of the answers is the price. With hundreds of online shops, it's understandable that many of them offer the same clothing as other sites. The only difference is the price. So, if you're looking for your favorite brand t-shirt, don't buy them from the first page you visit.

There is a high chance that you'll find the same t-shirt, but for half the price. The only problem is that with the overwhelming number of online shops, it can be difficult to navigate.

That's why, as soon as possible, you should find a few sites that have the potential to become your favorite and compare your research between them. Build the base of your favored websites, and you'll be able to do your shopping in no time.

3. Return Policy

Don't forget that when you're buying your clothes online, it's easy to make mistakes. Some of them you've probably witnessed yourself. Wrong size, the fact that the dress looked better online or picking the wrong color are the most common blunders you can make.

Therefore, you must understand the return policy of the company you're buying from your clothes. You need to know how much time you have to make a complaint, or more importantly if you can even make one.

Most online shops have a return policy, though. The main differences are usually the amount of refund you can get and the amount of time to return the clothes you bought. Some of the shops' return policies can be too complicated to handle.

That's why you should do thorough research before you choose the site that works for you. Compare not only the prices but return policies as well. Picking the site with the most friendly policy can spare you many unpleasant situations.


Online shopping can be a blessing, but it's understandable why many people still prefer going to physical shops. But with the constant improvement of the online shopping experience, their number is likely to decline.

The conveniences of online shopping are undisputable. Online shops are easy to navigate, they often offer many exciting discounts, and you can do your shopping without having to get up from your couch.

Moreover, with the ongoing globalization, you can buy clothes from shops that are not even in your country. Have you always dreamed of original dutch clogs? You can easily order them straight from the Netherlands. Just make sure you do that in advance.

Also, please don’t lose control. With the number of possibilities it’s easy to fall into an uncontrollable shopping spree.

    Corona is really getting us to a new level...

    The important question to ask is wether all these clothes that are sold online are durable or not.
