Have you ever purchased clothes online? Was it a good or bad experience? I'm debating about trying it. I'm looking for a dress, and they have some gorgeous ones online. I have no problems with purchasing most things online, but I'm leery about buying clothes. I feel weird spending money on something I haven't even tried on.

I'll buy bras and underwear, but not shirts, jeans, or anything else. I'm one of those ridiculous shapes/sizes where NOTHING ever fits. So it's just stupid to even try ordering it online.

Yep often do probably more than I buy from actual stores.

Means I get to try things on in the comfort of my home with my own accessories and stuff and if I don't like it just pop it back in the mail.

All the time.

I haven't had a bad experience. If I didn't like something id just return it, but... I never had that problem

See, that's what I'm worried about. I wouldn't say I'm a weird shape, but I do have areas that sometimes cause problems when it comes to clothes. But at the same time, I'm looking for a dress. Those are usually pretty forgiving when it comes to fit.

I would never order pants/jeans online........NEVER! LOL Those vary so much even from store to store, they must be tried on first.

I have ordered dresses, shirts, under garments, shoes, etc all without issues :)

I selected the wrong one. I said tried it never again but that isn't totally true. I buy socks online and PJ/lounge pants when there is a cazy good sale

Other than that... No. Things either don't fit the way i thought or the pattern/color/fit does not flatter me lol

I do it all the time, more often than I buy things in real life!

I only order from stores/brands I know I like since I'm familiar with their sizes.

Only if I know the store and know exactly what size I am. And also only from stores that do free in-store returns. I don't want to have to pay for shipping both ways (upwards of $15!) if something doesn't fit.

Never shoes though. I have such a hard time finding shoes that fit.

Definitely! And if I don't like it, returns are generally easy peasy! I also try to make sure I can return things at the store in person (like JCP, just take it back to the store), saves on shipping.

I also look closely at the size chart the website provides. Those help alot.

I don't usually: I'm sort of a weird shape (linebacker shoulders + tall and awkward) and I definitely prefer to try things on. Plus I tend to kid myself about what I can pull off...I'd much prefer to laugh hysterically at myself in a department store vs. have to worry about mailing something back!

I'll buy t-shirts and VFFs and that's about it. Even then my first pair of VFFs I had to return for a different size, and t-shirts vary quite a bit in sizing. I'm pretty sure anything else would be a disaster.

In the store I'll pick out 15 things to try on and only find one or two that fit properly or that I like once it's on...no way would I order online! I think I have bought a bathing suit before but I won't anymore.

Thanks for all the input! You've been really helpful. I suppose even if I don't like the dress, it's no big deal to return it. I think I'll give it a try.

I order all of my t-shirts from Woot. And if there's a huge jeans sale I'll order from American Eagle. I ordered a bra a couple months ago that I was really leery about - and it's the cutest, best fitting bra I currently own. So basically, yes I shop online. A lot. Lol.

Most stores have free shipping after you spend a certain amount. Returns are easy if the store is near you (and you normally have 14-60 days for returns), and some sites even do free shipping both ways (Zappos, for instance).

I ordered a dress at Lord and Taylor with free shipping about a month ago and I HATED it on, so I returned it with their label and the charge was like $6. It was really easy and hassle free.

I probably order about 60% of my clothing online. The rest I generally get at the Loft outlet near us!

I pretty much buy EVERYTHING I wear online. Finding something that fits at the stores around here is a HUGE pain and my options are pretty limited so I buy basically everything online. All the places I shop also have really good return policies so no hassle.
