Guides for Shopping For Clothing On-Line

According to shopperTrak, one of the reasons 2012 Black Friday sales fell compared to previous years was that many shoppers skipped the line and shopped online. A similar report showed that Cyber ​​Monday purchases for the same year were up 15% compared to previous years. These reports show that many shoppers are choosing to shop online.

There are many people who are still hesitant to buy online, especially buying clothes online. The reason is that they would prefer to wear the garment first, to make sure it fits, before they can take the dress or garment home. This is definitely a very good reason. Despite all the conveniences of online shopping, online shoppers purchase all products in good faith that each product description is “as is.” Online retailers, especially online clothing store owners, make a conscious effort to ensure that all online shoppers who shop at their online stores have a very good shopping experience. They always provide very good images and detailed descriptions of each garment, such as; colors and sizes of women’s dresses, women’s church suits, women’s pants, tops and blouses, men’s suits, men’s dress shirts and other men’s apparel. The same information is available for baby and children’s clothing. In addition to the complete description of each garment, online clothing stores provide information about the material each garment is made of, such as; cotton (as in cotton t-shirts, cotton dress shirts), or polymer as in (polymer sweatshirts), or leather (as in leather scooter jackets), organic materials as in (organic baby dresses or organic blankets for babies) and any other information that provides a good and detailed description of the garment in question. Detailed information provided to customers about each item of clothing helps them decide whether or not to purchase it.

Use size charts to choose clothing sizes

In addition to providing information on the available colors and sizes of each type of clothing, online clothing retailers publish size charts for each clothing they sell. These size charts guide customers on how to determine the clothing size they want to buy.

Different fashion designers have different size formats. The one-size-fits-all format for women’s clothing has three main size groups; petit, regular and women. Each of these three main size groups has sub-sizes such as; small small (S), small medium (M), small large (L). Similar subsizes are available for regular and women’s size groups. Other designers use size format like; extra small (XS), small (S), medium (M), large (L), extra large (XL), 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL, 6XL. Similar size formats are available for menswear, infants, and children. Whichever size format a designer uses, the chart is always available to guide the customer on how to choose the proper size that fits him/her or the child without first wearing the clothing to determine its suitability.
