This short Q&A is for those who are interested in buying their wedding lingerie online.
1. Is the brand name important when learning how to buy wedding lingerie online?
In online purchases, the element of examining and trying on the product is absent. Thus, it is important that you buy from well-known brands and web sites as this will make you worry less about the quality of the garment you are buying.
Even if you are sure of your measurements and assured of the quality of the products, it is still good to know the seller's return policy just in case. Some have a return policy while others don't have due to the intimate nature of the product. Instead they have a refund policy or money-back guarantee limited to a reasonable number of days.
Since this is your wedding lingerie, this means that the item should arrive at a specific date. Thus, check with the seller on how fast they can deliver your purchase.
2. What are the things to watch out for on how to buy wedding lingerie online?
Some indicators that you are dealing with a reputable company are customer testimonials on their website and a membership with Better Business Bureau. Also, do an online search to see if complaints have been filed against the online seller.
The site's membership with the BBB and having no complaints filed against them is important especially with privacy concerns. The lingerie business is related to the industry that sells sexual aids as intimate apparel can also belong there. Reputable lingerie retailers won't sell your name and contact information to these companies or else they will be removed from the BBB.
Aside from privacy concerns, security concerns are also important since you will be using your credit card. To protect your personal and credit card information from being intercepted by fraudsters, make sure that the site's order page is secure. An indication is that the web address starts with "https" instead of "http".
3. What are some tips on how to buy wedding lingerie online?
When making the purchase itself, first you should choose a site that specializes in lingerie as they can have more styles and color choices. Better yet choose one that specializes in petite or plus sizes if you fall into either category. Other more general sites may have limited selections and may not have a design you like in your size.
As much as possible, avoid sites that show the lingerie being worn by a model. These underwear models are of an idealized body shape that may differ greatly from yours. Using how the lingerie looks on them as a guide could lead to disappointment when you try the lingerie on and it doesn't look the same on you. Instead, use your own measurements as a guide. There are a lot of sites that just show the product and a size and measurement chart instead.
Though not all lingerie sellers do this, it will be a plus if the lingerie comes with matching foot wear. You wouldn't go through all that effort of choosing the right lingerie then just pairing it with flip flops, would you?
