Women's Clothing Review

Why Online Women's Clothing?

This first thing a lot of women say when asked why they don’t shop online for women’s clothing is usually something to the effect of “I like to see what I’m buying in-person before I buy it.” Quite understandable, but with the plethora of enhanced viewing options that are now available online, like being able to change garment color (while in-view) to 360 degree viewing on select garments (and high-quality images with zoom, enabling you can see every detail), not to mention customer-centric return policies that offer easy, stress-free returns, shopping online for women’s clothing is becoming more and more attractive with every passing year.

Another exciting feature of shopping online are the online exclusives that many of our top sites offer. Why go to their brick and mortar store, spend money on gas and/or other transportation costs, when you can get the exact item at a discount from the comfort of your own home? And with Americans being asked to be more green and drive less, it’s no wonder our top sites are ramping up all of their online offerings, from “exclusively online” specialty sizes to utilizing popular community features like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Online Women’s Clothing Site: What to Look For

We buy new clothes for occasions all year round, for that new job interview, the start of the school year, a best friend’s holiday party or that anticipated mid-winter getaway. And shopping, a beloved hobby for millions of women across the globe, is just as fun online. To keep it fun (and avoid a bad online experience), it’s all about choosing the right store. From well-stocked inventories, a variety of specialty sizes, helpful site search features and fair return policies, we’ve developed exact criteria for which to choose our top ten stores.

Beware! All of our top ten stores offer so many beautiful garments that it may be hard to choose, but that’s the fun in it. Let your mouse—and your heart’s desire—wander as you peruse all of their offerings that are quite literally, right at your fingertips. We evaluated our top ten online women’s clothing sites according to the following criteria:

Features
An online women’s clothing site should be attractive, full of beautiful images and should make navigating through their inventory a cinch. Also, an online women’s clothing site should offer a variety of prices and community features that help you stay connected with their company and other customers.

Inventory
While many things in life are about quality not quantity, a well-stocked inventory that offers items from all types of clothing categories is a feature that really makes a site standout. Being able to get everything you’re looking for on one site also keeps down shipping costs which is something most shoppers can appreciate.

Search Features
An online women’s clothing retailer should make it easy for its customers to find exactly what they’re looking for in seconds without having to scroll through page after page. It should also offer several ways in which to narrow their search—from color and size to brand and designer—and take full advantage of all the cool features that are available in the online shopping experience.

Return Policy
A fair return policy that’s clear and offers shoppers stress-free ways in which to return their items if need be is another important criteria we kept in mind when choosing our top ten stores. For example, a store should offer return labels with their shipment as well as fair return shipping costs.

Whether you’re on the hunt for the latest style of over-the-knee boots to a simple button-up shirt for your new job, shopping online for women’s clothing has become a hard-to-beat shopping experience that offers shoppers benefits at every virtual corner.
