How to Avoid Perfect-Piece Heartbreak
There’s nothing more disappointing than finding the perfect piece of clothing in a store or on a website, only to find the store only carries it in sizes too small for you.
Case in point: This amazing ruffled corset top from City Chic, which was available in every size up to just below the one I needed. Sigh.
Here’s how to avoid losing your fashionable heart to an unattainable item.
Check the Size Range
Before you do any browsing on a particular store’s site, make sure it carries items in your specific size. Many stores let you see only items in your size. Take advantage of this: There’s nothing more frustrating than finding the perfect piece of clothing, only to find its size range stops one size below the one you wear.
