Do you buy clothes online?

Is it safe? I really want to buy some clothes online because my city doesn't carry the kind of style i'd like to wear. But i'm scared. I don't want to go through the hassle of it being the wrong fit or not what i thought it was etc.

Tips?

  • Ii have ordered from places like J C Penney and they will gladly exchange the items if you are not satisfied.

    I usually only order brand names that I know my size FOR SURE in their line. That is so much easier. If you order a special amount, they usuually ship for free. I also signed up for their online ads.

  • Its easy, and exchanges are easy too! You'll get addited once you figure it out! I also have found a website to use where I can get cashback on my online purchases! YEAY! Sign up too for whatever store you like email updates, they will send you coupons, or alert you of special sales coming up or what not!

  • I usually only do if I know the brand and size work for me. Sometimes you have to take the chance though!

  • It's pretty easy to order clothes online now and you can return them easily if they are not what you want. I like overstock.com, Old Navy, Dressbarn, Chadwicks, Land's End, Gap, American Eagle. A lot of times you can find good sales and even coupons that can only be used online. I've ordered clothes from Victoria's Secret too when they have their big sales and got some really cute jeans, tops and bras. Coldwater Creek is another good one.

  • I don't, because I fit things really oddly. I *have* to try on clothes before I buy them.

  • no, i don't and for just those reasons - they usually don't fit and most often are not near the quality you expect - i need to go to a store and see the quality and fit before i buy - good luck to you in finding a store not too far from you - it's worth the traveling time - you also sometimes have a real hassle returning the stuff - trust me - been there - done that!!!

  • I do and I use ebay a lot too. Check return policies and read descriptions very carefully.

  • I do at least 3/4 of my clothes shopping online. Dillards and Macys have excellent return policies. For shoes, I like Zappos - free shipping, even on returns.
