The Do’s and Don’ts of Buying Jeans Online
Do you love the idea of buying your jeans online but are worried that they won’t fit properly? If so, read on to learn how to buy jeans that fit
well and how to avoid any unpleasant surprises when trying them on at home. Let’s get started!
Read the reviews
One reviewer wrote, I ordered three different sizes (12, 14 and 16) in the same style so I could compare. The 12 was way too small on me.
This is why it is important to always order a size up when purchasing jeans online. Another reviewer said, I went with my regular size
but they were way too tight. This is another example of why it’s important to order a size up when ordering jeans online.
One reviewer wrote, This color was way too light for me. When shopping for jeans online,
it is important to be mindful of the color you’re purchasing as well as your skin tone.
A good rule of thumb is that if you are fair skinned or have lighter features,
stick to darker colors like navy blue or black. If you have darker features or are tanned,
then stick with medium wash styles like gray or dark blue. Remember:
It may not work out if your expectations are not realistic!
What can also help alleviate this problem is going into the store to find out what kind of fit
and size works best for you first. After doing this, buy one pair in the right size and color
from there; save yourself the time and hassle by trying on these pants before buying them.
If reading reviews isn’t an option, always read descriptions carefully before purchasing pants. Size charts should also be available near pictures of each item
– especially true when buying online where dimensions cannot easily be seen at first
glance. These reviews will give you all the information about how to purchase jeans
without hassle- which includes wearing a pair until it’s worn out before giving up because sizing varies across brands.
Choose your fit
If you’re considering buying jeans online, there are a few key things you should do before
clicking buy. Of course, the first thing you should do is measure yourself to make sure that
the jeans will fit. Make sure to take into consideration your inseam, your waist size and
your hips as these three measurements are very important when trying to find the best
fitting pair of jeans. From here, it’s important to try on a variety of different brands to see
what feels comfortable for you. The last thing that you should be mindful of when buying
jeans online is how much stretch they have in them. Stretchy material will stretch out over
time which can cause holes in the pockets or crotch area if the pants are too tight. You’ll
want to purchase jeans with just enough stretch so that they don’t feel restrictive but also
don’t feel like they are going to rip. With all of this in mind, feel confident about ordering
some great fitting jeans online!
Fit your lifestyle
Do buy a pair of jeans when you’re in the store. You’ll be able to tell if they fit well and
check the fabric quality up close. If they don’t have your size, ask an employee to order them for you. This will ensure that your purchase is a good one.
Don’t buy jeans online without trying them on first. There are so many different fits, cuts,
and styles that it can be difficult to find the right ones without actually trying them on first.
You also won’t know how they look with your shirt or shoes until you try them on in person.
Do visit websites like Warby Parker, Tommy Hilfiger, or GAP where there are plenty of
photos available. Compare the jeans by price point and style. Then make your decision
from what’s available in-store rather than shopping from home.
Don’t assume that because a retailer has high reviews it means their products will suit your
needs – this isn’t always true! Always measure yourself accurately before ordering new
clothes as sizing charts can vary greatly between brands and retailers.
Look at details
Do make sure that you check the sizing charts before you buy. Different brands have different sizes,
so it is important that you figure out which brand fits you best before making a purchase.
Do read customer reviews to see how the jeans fit those who have purchased them in the
past. This will give you an idea of what to expect when they arrive at your doorstep.
Don’t forget about shipping costs! If you are purchasing something from a company with
free shipping, take advantage of it if possible to save yourself some money on your order!
Don’t buy jeans online if it is not a necessity for some reason, like if you are tall or short-
waisted. Unless you are buying pants that are specifically tailored to those body types,
chances are they won’t fit properly. It’s also worth noting that many stores only sell one or
two lengths of jeans; meaning that you may be restricted as to what lengths would work
for you based on the store’s inventory. Finally, it is important to note that all pants should
be worn high enough on your waist so as not to create a bulge over the top of your
waistband. Some people choose to wear belts or suspenders in order to keep their clothes
up, but other people just opt for high waists. The right pair of jeans can make all the
difference between looking good and feeling comfortable. Take the time to find a pair that
makes you feel both fashionable and confident!
1) Figure out what style of jean you are looking for. The more specific you are, the easier it will be to find a pair that fits your needs. Are you looking for something trendy?
A pair that is vintage inspired? Something more relaxed like a boyfriend fit or straight leg?
All jeans have different silhouettes so know what you want before shopping around.
2) Know your size! This may sound obvious but many people don’t know their exact pant
size, especially when it comes to jeans. Go to a department store and try on as many
styles and sizes as possible, then take note of which ones fit best. If this isn’t an option for
you, look up the brand’s sizing guide and follow those guidelines. 3) Pick your favorite
wash/color from our website by clicking on Collections at the top of any page. Next select
Jeans from the drop-down menu in order to filter our selection based on color or fabric type
(i.e., dark wash denim). 4) Lastly scroll through all available washes until you find one that
speaks to you – this can be done quickly using filters on each page.
5) Once you’ve found some options, use our Size Guide located under every product listing
(or click here!) to determine which size would work best for your measurements.
Know what you are looking for
Tip #1: If you know what brand, cut and style of jeans you are looking for, do some research beforehand. This will help you narrow down the search.
Tip #2: If you’re buying jeans online for the first time, look for an online store that has a return policy in place. This way if the fit doesn’t work out,
then you’ll be able to return them without any hassles.
Tip #3: When it comes to sizing, keep in mind that denim stretches with wear, so order one size up from your usual size – this will leave room for growth!
Tip #4: Keep your budget in mind when purchasing online – it may seem more affordable at first glance but shipping fees can add up quickly!
When ordering online, take into account how long it will take for the item to arrive (especially during high-volume periods like Black Friday).
