Is It Okay To Buy Plus-Size Clothing Online?

Tips For Online Purchases

Shopping online for great plus-size clothing can be convenient, quick and easy. It not only saves you time, but oftentimes you can find great deals. However, when buying online, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Know your measurements. This is important because you do not have the benefit of a dressing room when shopping online. You have to be able to peg your exact size, so knowing all of your measurements can help you make the right choice.
  • Pay attention to fabrics – they are just as important as size. A silk or and chiffon won't have the same “give” that a cotton or stretch fabric will, so pay attention to those details before making a purchase. If you fit just right into a size 18/20, consider going a half-size or full-size larger if the fabric is restrictive. Be aware of how your body generally looks in these fabrics and purchase accordingly.
