Buying your clothes online is not just about knowing your size only. You also do not want to receive delivery of clothes that do not fit. This is can be frustrating, especially when you go to reorder only to find out that the right size is no longer in stock. Plus, even when you are sure of your size. Various brands of clothes fit differently, and most of the online shops tailor-fit their clothes to make them look like they are a better fit. Fortunately, there are some secrets that you can consider to help get your fit right as you buy from an online boutique.
- Read the fit notes
As you shop for your favorite clothes in an online boutique, try reading the fit notes as they will guide you on how tall the model is and the size she has on. This is helpful, especially when you are trying to tell where the neckline, waistline, or hemline of the pieces you want to purchase will fit you. For instance, if you are shorter than the model, then the fitting lines will be longer. If you are tall, they will be shorter. Also, as you read the fit notes, it will tell you if the garb is tight or loose, and you can size it up or down.
- Purchase multiple sizes of the same thing
Depending on the site that you are purchasing your clothes, if they offer free shipping and returns, you can take advantage of it. In this way, you can return the pieces that do not fit. You may also find that one boutique will offer various sizes while another will have free size that fits every body shape. So you can try both of them. However, it is important to keep in mind if you will return the clothes that are not your fit; it may take longer to get your money credited back.
- Check the seams
Anything with seams that go under your breasts will not be a good fit for you, especially if you have a heavy bust size. However, if you have a completely flat chest, it will work out better. Otherwise, if you go for pieces with diagonal or curving seams under the chest and you have a heavy bust, it will cut across the chest other than under it as it should.
- Do not buy a size up to layer
Although the idea of buying a size up to layer seems perfect in theory. When you try it out and your clothes seem over-sized you will not want to wear them. Also, the layers you have in your closet may not be that thick. Plus, fitting silhouettes may be having more room than you may be thinking they do. Thus, choose a looser silhouette and ensure that you get the right size.
- Opt for thicker fabrics for a perfect fitting
When you want to buy fitted pieces, it is best to stick to thicker fabrics. When you choose flimsy fabrics they will disappoint you, especially when it is a more fitting silhouette. These fabrics will always need to be tailored to fit properly. Even when it is a little part of the fit that needs fixing as for looser and less tailored pieces, opt for lightweight fabrics as they fit perfectly with these fabrics.
- Choose dresses that mirror your natural shape
If you want a dress that fits you well, one that follows your natural body shape is a perfect choice. Also, if it will require any adjustments, they will only be a few. So, if you are smaller on the top, opt for A-line silhouettes. Curvier body shapes will look better with dresses that have a built-in waist. The other shapes will work out best when you try the dresses first to know the right fit for you.
To conclude, it is important to get the right fit as you shop in online boutiques. This is not only for garments but for other accessory pieces too like sunglasses. Which when you buy them, it’s best to choose frames that work for your face shape. Also, remember to choose clothes that have a stretch or those you can easily adjust.
