Shopping for clothes online, whether you buy them from a big box store or a custom clothier, can get you great style at bargain prices. Unfortunately it also comes with the worry that because you’re buying a clothing item sight-unseen, it just won’t fit and you’ve wasted your money. Here’s how to make sure that never, ever happens.

I don’t know too many people who love shopping for clothes. I don’t mind it, but the ability to shop for clothes online makes it easy to improve your personal style and dress better, and take the stress and shame out of clothes buying. It’s natural more and more people would want to do it. It does however come with the stress of possibly having to return whatever you buy because it doesn’t fit. It’s not like there’s a dressing room for Amazon. Well, we can’t eliminate you ever having to deal with returns or exchanges, but with a little planning and some smart shopping, we can make sure it’s rare.
