But passive buying might end up causing you problems, an important tip would be when you buy online clothes make sure you buy the correct sizes.

Tip: Shop around to find the best prices, and keep your guard up to avoid scams and disreputable sellers.

Take your measurements seriously. Each manufacturer may size clothing differently, we rely on a standard small/medium/large scale or numeric size scales. Since you cannot try on clothes before you buy them when shopping online, zoom-in image product can help you visualize more about the clothes. Also, check the product description of each garment you consider purchasing to double-check how the sizes are measured. You may discover that you are a small by one manufacturer’s standard, but a medium by another standard.


At minimum, women should know their bust, waist, and hip measurements. Additional measurements, such as height, inseam, and arm length, may also be needed depending on the garment being purchased.


Men should know their chest, neck, waist, and inseam measurements. Additional measurements, including arm length, shoulder width, and height may also be needed.

For newborns and toddlers, parents should know their child’s height and weight.

Make a list of what you need. If you decide to shop for multiple items of clothing at once, write down everything you need before you get started. Doing so will help you stay on track and may help prevent you from feeling overwhelmed by choices. You can also view the things that you are planning to buy at your shopping cart, and from there you can remove the things that are unnecessary in your shopping.


Avoid distractions. Only look at the clothes you know you need. If you only intend to buy a new dress, avoid looking at tops and accessories (or worst in other categories like home appliances). Otherwise, you risk wasting time looking at clothes you don’t really need, and may end up buying something extra and out of budget.

Try on your clothes as soon as they arrive. For your fear like: what if I the clothes don’t fit? it looks different in person or what if I just don’t like my order? Reputable online stores accept returns, but only within a limited time frame. Try on your clothes as soon as they arrive at your door. Do not remove any tags or stickers, since doing so may hinder your ability to return the item if it does not fit.
