 My sister is a BIG girl and refuses to try on clothes in a store.

 

Me - I really don't want to have to schlep back to the store to return something that doesn't fit so yep, I try them on - except shirts (they always fit)

I always try on, unless I'm in a big hurry and I really want it and I'm pretty sure it will fit.

 I always try them on first.  Saves trips back to return things that don't fit or look awful once you put them on.

When on Earth would she buy clothes that aren't her size?  That makes no sense to me.  Or did I read that wrong?

Yes, I always try clothes on.  Every manufacturer seems to make their sizes a little different.  Plus, I have a large chest and a large butt, and so not all clothes fit me the same...  Like I usually cannot buy button up shirts because the fabric pulls too much apart in the chest.

Most of the time I do. If I am just getting a shirt then no but pants and dresses I do. That is the only draw back of shopping online.

Sometimes I do.. But I usually shop at the same stores and know what sizes I wear there. Now that I am pregnant I dont try anything on..

I have to try them on because stuff fits me so differently.
