Tips for Online Shopping

Tips for Online Shopping

It’s probably the biggest pitfall of online shopping: you never actually try the clothes on until you’ve already bought them. There’s no dressing room on the Internet, and as a result, you must shop blind in a way.

But have no fear: with these tips in mind, online shopping will no longer be as scary as it seems! And you’ll be right on your way to finding the perfect fit.

Read the reviews

This might seem obvious, but there are usually a handful of customers who are wondering the same thing as you: will this fit? Scan through the comments, and see if there’s anything that comes up regarding sizing, the material used, and the measurements needed. That way, you can plan accordingly.

Know your measurements

If the comments do mention measurements, then you’re going to want to know what your perfect size is. We recommend having this done professionally beforehand at a tailor, so you can purchase in confidence. It’s also helpful to keep your measurements up-to-date for future occasions offline, too!

Remember the material

Not all of us can wear any material. Some of us just fit more naturally into corduroy or denim, while others are strictly cotton shoppers. Know your boundaries before you shop—the last thing you’ll want to happen is buy an unfavorable material online that you didn’t realize until you receive it.

Luckily, at DC Knits, even if that does happen, we have a return policy for any online purchases. Our philosophy is that finding the perfect fit isn’t always perfect. There will be bumps along the way—that’s just how online shopping is. But that doesn’t mean the tips above don’t apply. We still strongly believe that you’re more likely to get the clothes you need faster if you always keep them in mind.

If you have any questions or concerns about shopping at DC Knits, contact us today! We’d be happy to help you find that perfect fit today.
