Even this challenging situation would ease
But yes, there is often this issue of proper size. It could be trial and error the first time. Then you can note the particular vendor and the size he maintains. This is again a restricted option.
Earlier it was just about the size number. But now throe are many variants in fit and shapes like liberty cut, apple cut, Regular fit, Slim Fit, Prestigious fit, Classic, Casual, Formal, Semi formal, and a lot more. So there is always a risk of our selecting a wrong one. This is same for both online and offline shopping. But people buy after trial at offline shops.
I do not like to buy after trial nor do I appreciate people taking trials. I find it unhygienic. That simply robs of the charm of wearing a brand new fresh first hand dress. Now even in new we get only use-dresses. I cannot appreciate it.
In comparison, I find online shopping slightly better and more reliable. Of curse it depends on which portal we are shopping with. The top few online portals are reliable and dependable. Such portals give the explanations of the various terms used in size, look, fit, stitch etc. If we follow that properly then we can have a satisfying experience.
A combination of reputed and popular shopping portals with established reputed brands products, can give a more dependable and reliable experience.
Just a couple of days ago I bought readymade shirts from a very popular bran manufacturer. I can say that the experience is quite good. The quality is god, the colour is as it was displayed and the size and fit were as displayed and explained.
My experience with tailors war more unsatisfactory than with readymade item whether online or offline. So now I buy mostly online.
