Shopping for Casual Plus Size Clothing Online

December 24th, 2010 by Lisa Metcalf

Lots of women are shopping for their casual plus size clothing online.  There is no denying the fact that online stores have way more options for large women.  You can find stylish separates, bottoms, dresses, accessories, and more.  Shopping is so easy online; you can do everything right from the comfort of your own home.

Where most women seem to run into trouble is shipping costs and return policies.  These are things that are a little different from the typical shopping experience in a brick and mortar store.  Use this brief guide to help you make an online purchase of middle age plus size clothing for women as easily as possible.

Shipping Costs

Online retailers charge their customers shipping and handling charges to cover the expense of getting their products from the warehouse to your home.  Every website seems to handle shipping charges differently.  Be sure to check out their store policy; most retailers have a link to their shipping and handling policies right on the home page.

You may be able to get a discount on your shipping in some situations.  For example, some stores offer special sales on their shipping from time to time.  Other retailers provide free shipping to customers who make an order over a certain dollar amount.

Return Policies

Returning clothing you bought from an online store is a little different from returning things to a local store.  You should receive a return slip in your package with a shipping label you can use if you need to return anything.  Be sure to package your clothing carefully and use this label if you send items back.

Many online stores charge restocking fees to their customers.  These fees cover the costs of putting the items back into their regular stock and may include warehouse fees.  Every store is different and so are the restocking charges each retailer charges.

Remember that you can always contact the store about questions on shipping or returns.  Most online retailers are easy to get in touch with over the phone or through email.  Before you order anything, take some time to review the store policies so you are clear on what charges to expect.  That way you can take the stress out of shopping for casual plus size clothing online.
