Hey Amarra babes! Shopping for your prom outfit? Perfect! So, have you considered where you will buy your dream dress from? Well, if you’re a shopping enthusiast, you might know that online shopping has gone through the roof in the last couple of years, and there’s no stopping it now.
However, we understand that finding a garment as important as your prom attire from your computer can be daunting, so Amarra is here to help with the most crucial factors to consider when prom dress shopping online.
Finding the perfect apparel for such a big night online might be a big ask, but there are a number of precautions you can take to make sure you get the dress of your dreams.
First things first, be sure to check details like sizing, material, and fit, as well as the company’s reputation for sizing accuracy. Make sure the company is reputable, not a counterfeit dress site!
Once you’ve picked out some colors and styles you like, find as many details as you can. Read through some reviews to see what other folks think about the quality and sizing of each outfit. In short, learn everything you can about the dress before you buy it.
Checking the size of the attire is a toughie when you’re shopping online. But most sites (including Amarra and our associated online retailers) will have a sizing chart that includes bust, waist, and hip measurements for every piece of clothing. Knowing these numbers as measured on your body will make shopping a whole lot easier.
Before buying a dress, make sure to check the sizing chart and compare it to your measurements so you end up with an outfit that hugs your hips rather than one that sags around the waist (or worse–one you can’t even zip up!)
No one’s going to stop you from buying that perfect attire you found on an online shop that ships from across the country; however, it’s important to check the return and exchange policies of our authorized retailers before investing your precious paycheck into an outfit that might not live up to your expectations or fit you correctly.
Most of our authorized stores’ sites have tight deadlines for returns and exchanges, so give your wallet a break and buy the perfect dress the first time.
We know better than anyone how hard it can be to wait for a package to arrive, especially one you’re thrilled about, like your prom attire! When it comes to prom dress online shopping, the estimated delivery time really depends on the shop, as well as the shipping method, whether it’s expedited or not, and if it’s in stock.
The quickest way to get the outfit delivered to your door is to buy one that’s in stock! That way, the shop doesn’t have to pull it from the back racks or special order it from the manufacturer. Placing your order early in the season will help ensure that you get your outfit in time for prom – and with extra time to make any necessary returns, exchanges, or alterations!
