A lot of people nowadays prefer online shopping, because it is faster and they do not have to spend hours walking around trying to find that outfit they have been searching for. However, there are still some disadvantages online shopping has, especially when it comes to clothes – you cannot be completely sure they will fit you, even if the label says it is your size. So, how to be sure that some piece of clothing will fit you without trying it on? Here are some little tricks that will help you find this out.
How to know if a pair of jeans will fit you without trying them on
If you are in a hurry and you do not have a lot of time to try on jeans, just try this little trick which will help you make sure these jeans will fit you. Pull the zipper of the jeans first and then just wrap the waistline around your neck. If it is neither too big, nor too small, but it fits you perfectly, then this pair of jeans will fit your waistline as well. If you do not believe this, you can try it.
For example, try this trick with a pair of jeans which fits you and with a smaller size. You will see that the smaller jeans size will not cover your neck completely. This way you do not have to queue for the dressing room or to be worried that someone may pull the curtain of the dressing room while you are in your underwear. And you will also save a lot of time.
How to know is a skirt will fit you without trying it on
You can try this little trick not only if you want to buy skirts without trying them on, but you can also do it with pants. Just get the skirt and hold it in front of your body as if you are wearing it. You need to make sure first that you have placed the skirt right on the level you are going to wear it, e.g. on your waistline, above it, or under it.
Then you need to make sure the skirt meets the edge of your waistline perfectly. It again should not be wider or smaller than it. If both the edges of the skirt and your body fit, then it means that the skirt is exactly your size. The same goes for pants and jeans. And if you want to be absolutely sure that the piece of clothing fits you without trying it on, try both techniques we have mentioned so far.
How to know if a pair of shoes will fit you without trying them on
If you do not have time to try on shoes, you can just try this trick. Put the sole of the shoes right on the sole of your feet. What you need to make sure, though, is that the soles do not fit perfectly, but the soles of the shoes should be bigger than the soles of your feet. There should be some space between the tips of your toes and the tip of the shoes, about 3-4 centimeters.
You should also pay attention to the width of the shoes and width of your feet. Some pairs of shoes may fit the length of your foot, but it could be too tight for your feet. So, remember that every time you try on a pair of shoes, without actually putting the shoes on, you need to measure the width of the shoes. This way you will be sure that the shoes will not be too tight for your feet.
