I know I have been clueless many times on what size to order when purchasing and hesitant when they don’t offer return information. I told myself that when we opened our online boutique I wanted to make sure our customers knew they could always contact us via email or phone with questions and have the ability to speak to a person not an automated system. Our goal is to have satisfied and happy customers each and every day. So if you have a question regarding a size or need additional measurements of a specific item we are more than happy to help.

With the growth of online sales, merchandise is available at your fingertips without ever leaving the house. Here are a few tips that help me when I shop online for unique women’s clothing.
Tip #1 Know your Measurements, not just what size you wear
Because a size 2 is not always a size 2 at every store, it’s important to know your measurements. Many online boutiques, including us carry multiple lines of clothing and each line varies slightly in size. Since you can’t try on clothes that are offered by online clothing boutiques, you need to know your body measurements. You will need to take your bust/chest measurement, your waist measurement, your hip measurement, your arm length, your dress length and your inseam measurement. It’s also helpful to know your bra size and your under bust measurement. This way you can compare these dimensions to the information given by the retailer or retailer’s website.
Tip # 2 Read the FAQ
Most online clothing boutiques will offer a listing of Frequently Asked Questions. These questions should answer basic concerns about shipping rates, return policies and payment security. All reputable online boutiques have secure sites that protect the security of your credit card. One way to protect yourself is to always make sure that you are on a secure site when checking out. When browsing a site the address will begin with http://www.; however when you check out it should begin with https://www. The “s” signifies you are using a secure site.
Tip # 3 Sign up for mailing lists
When you begin to shop online for unique women’s clothing, be sure to visit the websites of your favorite boutiques and sign up for the their mailing list in order to receive advance notice about special sales or other offers. Being on the mailing list will ensure that you don’t miss out on money-saving deals. If you’d like to sign up for ChiChi Mail, please click here to join us!

One of the biggest complaints from online shoppers is about the high cost of shipping. Many sites offer discounts, flat rates or even free shipping. Taking advantage of such offers can significantly reduce the costs of your overall purchase.
Buying clothing online can be a great way to save time and money. Following these tips on how to shop online for unique women’s clothing will help ensure that you have a better online shopping experience. Knowing your size and being thoroughly informed about the boutique’s policies will enable you to pick the clothing that is right for you.
