6 Things Smart Shoppers Do When Shopping for Clothes Online

6 Things Smart Shoppers Do When Shopping for Clothes Online

These days, it’s just so convenient to go to an online shop to go through its catalog and check out with all the items you love. As easy as it seems, you shouldn’t be careless about shopping online, especially when you’re buying clothes. When you buy clothes or shoes online, you can’t try them on first and you can’t be sure about the quality of the products because you can’t physically see or touch them. Here we’ve got some tips for you to shop smart online.

1. Get Accurate Measurements for Your Body (And Keep Them Updated!)

You really need proper measurements of your body before you buy any clothes or shoes online. Make sure you’re measuring your body parts correctly and jot down the measurements carefully. Some stores make use of centimetre while some use inch when indicating their size in sizing charts. Also, don’t forget to keep the measurements up to date! Look at the image below to correctly measure your body parts:

    2. Check the Sizing Charts of the Online Shops

    The small size in one retailer can be different from the small size in another retailer. Even in the same online shop, it can consist of a number of retailers selling clothes, so make sure you match your measurements with the corresponding sizes by checking the sizing charts accordingly.

    3. Choose an Online Shop that Monitors Products Quality

    When you buy anything, for sure you don’t want to buy any low quality products, or even fake products. Therefore, choose a shop that has strict management on the vendors and products, for example, Sammydress.

    Sammydress has a strict management on the vendors, their products and even the photos they provide. If a vendor provides a substantially inferior product or photos which are different from the real product, it will be blacklisted and Sammydress will no longer conduct business with that factory. Sammydress has also instituted a 4-step process to eradicate potential infringement claims including supplied assessment, daily monitoring, and prevention and infringement identification.

    4. Check for Reasonable Pricing

    Some shops have pricy products claiming that it’s because their products are imported from overseas. But watch out here, imported goods are not always sold at high prices.

    Say Sammydress, it provides the exact information to factories based on the big data analysis and consumers’ required collection, so as to get better price from different vendors and sell clothes directly to international consumers who can afford the price.

    5. Make Sure Goods Delivery Is Reliable

    Some shops may not deliver their items to every part of the world, so you’d better check if ordering from your current location is possible. Also, you should make sure that the shop has a smooth and secured delivery process because you don’t want to be waiting forever for your product to arrive, or even never receiving the product you’ve ordered.

    Take Sammydress as an example, it have built long term partnerships with UPS, FedEx, DHL and other leading global carriers. Each product needs to be carefully checked and securely packed before shipping out. Sammydress also has warehouses and distribution hubs located in Asia, USA and Europe, ensuring responsiveness to the customers.

    6. Choose an Online Shop that Values Customers’ Needs

    Besides providing high quality products, a good online shop should never undermine customers’ needs. A responsible shop should be responsive to customers’ needs and concerns because a shopping experience is more than just the products, it’s also about the service.

    With a 24-hour live chat service and hotline for customers to solve their problems, Sammydress has built an example to be a responsible online shop.

    How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

    How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

    Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

    If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

    1. Breathe

    The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

    • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
    • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
    • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

    Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

    2. Loosen up

    After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

    Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

    3. Chew slowly

    Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

    Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

    Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

    4. Let go

    Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

    The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

    It’s not. Promise.

    Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

    Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

    21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

    5. Enjoy the journey

    Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

    Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

    6. Look at the big picture

    The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

    Will this matter to me…

    • Next week?
    • Next month?
    • Next year?
    • In 10 years?

    Hint: No, it won’t.

    I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

    Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

    7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

    You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

    Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

    8. Practice patience every day

    Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

    • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
    • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
    • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

    Final thoughts

    Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

    Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
