Some tips to purchase lingerie online:

1 Size matters: One of the most critical aspects in selecting lingerie is of course the size. Lingerie of poor fit not only leads to discomfort but also gives the body a weird shape.

2 Clear facts and prices: Purchasing lingerie online can be a good option as the the variety available is larger than that in retail shops. But the online stores must clearly state categories and price range in order to make it convenient for online customers. Otherwise, a cluttered website can make online buying cumbersome for many and a little intimidating for first-time users.

3 Return policy: Before buying lingerie online, it is important to know the store’s return policy. If merchandise doesn't fit or is damaged in some way, then it is important to know if you can send it back and if there are any a extra charges for that. Numerous websites checklist their return policies clearly on their website. Avoid websites that don’t enable returns of any kind.

4 Material wise: One always tends overlook the type of material used to manufacture the lingerie. Most lingerie sets are created from a blend of polyester and spandex. But it is wise to know what material has gone into making the lingerie, so that any discomfort or allergy is avoided.

5 Colour effect: The sites selling online lingerie must keep colours for all occasions. White or skin coloured lingerie is best for light coloured clothes. Black and red are considered bolder colours. Other colours are used as per individual choices.
