Who has time to spend the day shopping for clothes like we did in our uni days (ah, how I miss those shopping sprees!)? These days I shop in my pyjamas when the kids are asleep, from the comfort of my couch. Thank goodness for online shopping! To get you started, we have put together a list of our top ten women’s online shopping stores.
But before you start clicking on your favourite fashion, we’ve got a few tips to keep in mind before hitting the online shopping stores.
Top Tips When Buying Clothes Online
- Check the store’s returns and exchange policy – I have been burnt more than once on online stores that don’t offer a satisfactory returns and exchange process. Make sure you read over this carefully before making a purchase.
- Sign up to the shop’s newsletters – You may be sent a discount for your first purchase and will be alerted about sales and other news.
- Compare Prices – check out a number of sites and make sure you’re getting the best deal.
- Study the shop’s sizing chart – It’s a good idea to measure yourself accurately to ensure that you are buying the correct size.
- Read reviews – Take some time to read what other customer’s think of the online shop and if they have had any negative experiences using the website.
