If you are used to buying things online you know that it is difficult to find the perfect fit for your body.

It is very easy to get a wrong size of clothe while you are shopping for it online.

Especially when you are  ordering from a site that you previously have not used.

The scales provided in the site might not match exactly as per your requirement.

Mostly the women clothing stores will have a large scales of measurement and it might also differ from one store to another.

So, to make it easier for you I have 9 tips that you can use to stop that from happening.


1. Get the measurements right for online shopping:

Don’t guess your measurements. Just because someone that looks your size orders a particular size, you don’t have to do the same.

In Fact the body measurements of people are completely different even when they might look the same from the outside.

So, before you go to a women clothing store website make sure you have the measurements.

When you are taking your measurement, make sure that you’re wearing the least amount of clothes possible to get the perfect measurement.

It is important to get the measurement upclose from your body, so take a measurement tape and record your vitals.

Make sure to take the measurements twice incase you might have made any mistakes in your first try.

However, I suggest that you request someone else to help you with the measurements if possible.

Use these to know more about getting the measurements right.


2. Keep upto date with the measurements:

It is not enough to get the measurement right just once. Especially for girls, we are prone to weight changes.

It is important that we take our measurements once in a while.

It is requested that you measure yourself every eight weeks of standard time.


3. Look up and know the different scales on online shopping websites:

Almost each of the women/men clothing store will have a distinct measurement scale.

Make sure that you look up this information before you decide to make a purchase.

Especially when you are shopping online you cannot try the clothes before you buy them, so check the scales and compare them with your measurement sheets.

It is possible that if you are a size 8 in some brands you are different in another.

So, be careful and read the information about the scales.


4. Order from brands that you have previously used:

I suggest that you order from a brand that you have already made a purchase from.

Whether you bought it in a shop or ordered through online shopping, try to stick to the same brand.

This will reduce the chance of messing up the order due to different scale.

If the previous order satisfied you and was of the right size, go ahead and use the same brand.


5. Look up at the customer reviews:

When your shopping online, you should try to refer to the comment and reviews section.

This will help you learn from the customers that have previous customers.

If there is very bad reviews of the customers about the size difference by the customers, it is advised that you don’t buy from that particular brand.

This is the perfect reference for you to understand if the brand genuinely supplies the correct sizes.


6. Shop for only similar types of clothes online:

Another trick that you can use while shopping for clothes online is to buy similar kind of clothes.

Mostly for women clothing stores, it will be easier for you to get the measurements correct if you are buying similar type of clothes.

The scales might be different for a dress compared to a shirt or a pant.

So, in order to avoid mistakes, shop for similar clothes from same brands if possible.


7. Make notes on retailers and size information:

It is easy to forget things as a human being. So, when you take your measurements make sure that you record it.

You can use applications that are designed only for this particular purpose.

Or else you can just use traditional way of noting it down on a notebook.

This will help you get any reference when required.

Additionally, try to record the scale information of the brands that you previously used.


8. Get a tailor to take your measurements:

If you think that your measurements might not be correct, you can always take help from a professional.

They will help you understand your measurement sizes and maybe give you some tips on what size you actually need to order.


9. Order multiple sizes while shopping online:

Finally, you can also choose multiple sizes while you are shopping online.

If there is a money back guarantee in the online women or men clothing store you can always return it.

If you are not sure even after taking all the measurements and looking at the scales, this can be your last option.

When you get your package, select the one that perfectly fits you and you can return the others back.
