First, Know Your Size
Well, duh, right? We don’t mean the typical sizes that you would choose in stores like size four, six or ten or small, medium, and large. We mean it’s also helpful to know your size in inches as well. Especially, when it comes to jeans. Many times, online items will list the width, height and weight of an item so that the consumer knows the exact size of that specific product. You see, it is widely known that one size from one company does not usually mean you will be that same size in another. Take a tape measure and measure the area of your body for which you are purchasing a product for. Match that as closely as possible to the size that they recommend based on the measurements.
When you are unsure of an online product and want to get it right, give a call to the customer service team. They can usually help with details that may not be given online., such as color or fabric or style. If there is a retail location for the the brand or store you are shopping online at near you, give the local store a call. More often than not, they will be knowledgeable about what you’re looking for and may give you the exact information you need to decide on your online purchase.
Visit Physical Retail Location
We get it, the point of online shopping is to avoid going to the store. However, for your peace of mind, and to save yourself time and money making a return, sometimes it’s just better to buy in store. There are some items that are difficult to buy in person, let alone online… Jeans being one of them! Why not get it right the first time with the help of a store associate who can provide you with knowledge and support? Not every item you want requires this attention. However, it’s usually the items you want most that do!
