E-commerce sites are finally catching wise to one of the pitfalls of online shopping – you can’t try on the article you’re buying! While it may not be a perfect system yet (wouldn’t it be great if the models varied from a perfect size 2, just once in a while?), many e-retailers, like Shopbop, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Asos, now offer 360-views and live runway shots of their clothing, so you can see it on a body and motion.
If you’d still prefer to physically try on your clothes before purchasing, check out designer Norma Kamali‘s “Try Before You Buy” policy—they’ll ship the items to you to try on at your leisure in the comfort of your own home, and only charge for what you decide to keep. (Bonus? If you do keep your items, the shipping is free.)
