Preventing A Bad Buying Experience Online
Shopping for clothing can be a lot of fun, but it can easily become stressful if you have to deal with mean, impolite salespeople and cashiers. I recently read a blogger’s experience in a plus size clothing store and was blown away by how rudely she was treated.
I know that having a bad experience shopping can completely ruin my day and is sure to mean I won’t ever be returning to the store where I was mistreated. Many women shop for the majority of their middle age plus size clothing on the Internet. How can you prevent having a bad buying experience when you’re shopping online?
My number one suggestion, check the sizing chart before you start shopping. Many women get frustrated because they guessed on the right size for them and then wind up having to return their garments. That’s usually quite aggravating since you might have to pay shipping costs on your exchange.
The solution to all this frustration is getting in touch with the customer service department before you buy. Most retailers have friendly and helpful staff who want to help you find the right size in casual plus size clothing.

“There is an amazing feeling of artistic accomplishment when all the parts come together into one harmonious aesthetic. It's a connection with who you are and the elements you choose to express yourself visually. This is what making clothing is all about for me. It's like when a songwriter hears his first written notes from a voice or a baker who has practiced a recipe and nails it or a figure skater who exceeds her own expectations. I express my sense of art in clothing. I see things in color, shape and texture. I react to the touch of silk on my skin and my eyes are aware of how color combinations make me feel. My goal is to bring all of these intuitive notions to garments that are sized for larger women. If I can accomplish this then I have reached my goal.” – Stephen
