I want to buy it!

There is an outfit I want to buy, but the nearest store is an hour away. Do I order it online without trying it on and risk having to send it back or do I drive an hour to try it on? ... what would you do?

  • I would order it online. I do this a lot and have never had to send anything back. You know your body.

  • I would order it online and return if necessary unless there are many other shops an hour away that you need to so you can make it a really worthwhile trip.

  • Order it online. My mom buys clothes all the time online and if they don't fit she just sends them right back.

  • Personally, I would never buy anything without trying it on first. What if it doesn't fit right? Or you don't like it once it's on? Either way you'll be inconvienced whether it's now or later.

  • I'm not one that buys clothes without trying it on, either. Shirts, yes. Pants or dresses, no. Though, I don't mind an hour drive to do some shopping and would make a day of it doing other things in that city. For instance Charlotte is 90 miles from where we live so we'll sometimes go up there and we go to IKEA, the Mills outlet mall, REI, etc. and then we eat somewhere that we don't have in our town.
