Shopping online for clothes is a no secret way to save money. On top with my busy schedule, it makes life so much easier when I can shop for clothes at the comfort of my home at any given time. However, there’s always that fear that, no matter how nice the dress looks on the website, it just won’t fit to your liking when it arrives. Then, you would have just wasted your money. Well, here are some tips that I’ve learned in the past to make sure that this won’t happen. I’m going to be using the website edressuk.co.uk to help me demonstrate my examples.



Measure yourself and Make sure they are Up to Date
The first and probably the most important thing is to properly measure yourself and to keep measurements up to date. A small from one company may be a medium at another. Thus, if you know your own measurements, you’ll have no problem figure out what size you are on various sites.

The most efficient way is to either do it yourself or get a friend/hubby/boyfriend to do it for you. I simply follow this site. Some tips: try not to suck in your stomach too much and to stand up straighter than normal in order to maximise your posture.

Always Check the Sizing Charts
Especially when looking for evening dresses UK, you should always refer to the size charts on the website to help you find the right fit. Most websites would now provide a sizing chart not just for clothing, but for accessory items as well. edressuk.co.uk provides a size chart along with all their listings that makes buying from the site such a breeze. Just like the actual sizes, sizing charts will also vary from site to site. Thus, it’s key to not be lazy and to actually check the chart.

It’s always good to start getting to know your body shape and what type of dresses flatters your shape. I personally love a-line dresses, so those are the ones that I’ll always lean towards.

Buy a little Bigger and Get it Tailored
For occasions that are more important, like when you’re searching for cheap prom dresses uk or wedding dresses, I highly suggest buying just a little larger than your usual size and find a tailor or seamstress to help you take it in. This is a really niffy trick in ensuring that your dress will be fitted just right.
