How to Check if Clothes Are Your Size, Without Trying Them On

ImageWe all love shopping but we don’t always feel like going into the changing room.  Sometimes it’s because it’s your 5th shop and you’re just fed up of the dressing and undressing, sometimes it’s because you’ve just left work and you aren’t sure if your feet will smell once out of your shoes…whichever the reason, here are my tips!

Tops

Go Horizontal –

Find the side seam and put it on the side of your upper body.  If the garment reaches the other side, it’s your size! If not, go for the next size!

Now Go Vertical –

There’s nothing like a short top to make your day a nightmare by having to constantly pull it down!

Hold the garment in front of you and make sure that the top of the garment is properly on your shoulder, not below it, on it!  This is important to know if the top is of the right length.

Skirts

Go Horizontal –

Again find the side seam but this time put it on the side of your leg,  If the skirt reaches the other side, it’s your size! If not, go for the next size!

Now Go Vertical –

Hold the skirt with your hand holding your waist line and your hip forming an L-shape.  With your other hand follow the side of your leg to see where the skirt reaches to.

Trousers

Go Horizontal –

Once again find the side seam but this time put it on the side of your leg,  If the skirt reaches the other side, it’s your size! If not, go for the next size!

Now Go Vertical –

Hold the trousers with your hand holding your waist line and your hip forming an L-shape.· With your other hand pull the middle part of the trousers, this will help you check if the fit is high or low waisted.

Shoes

Of course, it is always best to try shoes on, however, we all know that sizes differ from one brand to another.  So, instead of trying them on only to find you’ll have to catch the shop assistant’s attention again to get you a different size, put the shoe on the floor next to your foot and check if the length of the shoe goes from your toe to your heel.

Enjoy the stress-free shopping ladies! 🙂
