Many of us are skeptical about shopping online, especially intimate stuff like lingerie. But then most of what we assume is actually wrong. Buying lingerie online is not such a bad thing.
Here are a few misconceptions that are running around in our heads :
1. Buying intimates like underwear is gross
Some women think that buying intimates Online is gross. First of all you have to understand that you are buying new products. And if you are buying it from a verified website chances are that you will get what you see and are promised. You can be assured that they come with the tags in an unused condition. And if they are not as assured then you can always return them.
A little piece of advice : It is always better to wash undergarment even if they are new so as to clean the garment of all the chemicals used in the dying process.
2. I can’t try them on
The same applies to all clothes bought online. If you are sure about your size and the brand then what is stopping you. Plus you can always return the piece if it doesn’t fit with the tags on and as per the conditions mentioned in the return policy. If you exchange the product you are most likely to get a credit note and in some case, a full refund.
3. It takes too long
Navigating through lingerie website can be a little frustrating in the beginning. You need to learn to use the filters and filter out what exactly you need from the filters. For example if you are looking for bras in the general bra section and you are specifically looking for a t-shirt underwired bra then you have to check the filter of underwire and t-shirt bra so that you can look up your preferences faster. You can even add the ones you like to your wish list so that you can easily sort from list at the end before checking out.
4. You can return them
Yes every online retail stores now have amazing return policies that accept exchange or return of the product if it doesn’t fit or it doesn’t meet the expectations or the description as mentioned in the website. And yes even bras and panties can be exchanged provided they are in a new state, unsoiled and with the tags intact.
It is well worth the risk taken to shop for lingerie online. You won’t know how it really is unless you try it. I’m sure you won’t shop elsewhere once you get the hang of shopping online for lingerie.
