Shopping for Clothes Online & Choosing the Right Size

Choosing the Right Sizes When Shopping for Clothes Online

Shopping for clothes online has become a staple part of our virtually focused society and it sure can be fun. Instead of wasting petrol to drive to a store, where you have to stand amongst so many strangers, with the risk of not even finding what you’re looking for, you can simply click away on your laptop or phone. There’s nothing more therapeutic after a long day than drawing a bath and going to your favourite store’s online selection. It is also quite a stress-free experience in general.

Shopping for Clothes online

Take our website, for example. If you’re looking for beachwear or clothes online, you simply have to click on the appropriate section, and you can browse through our awesome selection. Or, if you already have an idea of what you want, you can type a keyword or phrase into the search box, and you will be given multiple options.

However, with the good comes the bad, and that is no different in the world of online clothing shopping. One of the biggest stressors when shopping for clothing is finding the correct size, even in the physical store. The one advantage to a physical store, though, is that you can try on the items. With online shopping, that is not a possibility. And no one wants to just blindly purchase something without knowing if it will even fit in the first place. Luckily, we are here to teach you exactly how to overcome this hurdle and get right on back to your online shopping spree.

How to Choose the Correct Sizes When Shopping for Clothes Online

If you want to avoid making any mistakes while buying clothes online, Lu-May has the tips and tricks that could help you avoid an awkward return.

  1. A Picture Speaks a Thousand Words:

    This may seem like an obvious one, but look at the pictures of clothes on the website. Most clothing stores will have images of their clothing items for display purposes, usually donned by a model. Now, we know what you’re thinking, and yes, not everyone looks like a model. However, even if you don’t have the exact same build as the model, you can still look at how the item sits on their bodies. Where it tightens, how high or low the cut is, etc. It could give you a good idea of what size you would choose for your own body shape. Plus, at Lu-May, we believe that all women should feel confident, which is why our ambassadors are expected to spread positivity, and we choose women of all shapes and sizes.

  2. We Are Living in a Material World:

    Another thing to look out for is what material the clothing item is made from, as this can affect the fit. For example, with something stretchy, like lycra, you could purchase a smaller size as you know it will stretch out. This would be the case with some of our bikinis, which are made with lycra and elastic materials. You will see that we provide information for all our clothing items, including the materials they are made from.

  3. Measure Up:

    It is important to know your own size before purchasing clothes online. So, get the measuring tape and get to know your measurements inside and out. You can then combine this with the size guides that we have next to all items.

  4. Returns:

    Knowing a store’s return policy is always important. While these tips may help you make a more educated decision, it doesn’t mean that you will never make a mistake. At Lu-May, returns and exchanges are allowed within five days of purchase, so you can simply switch for the right size if it’s available.
