Just wondering if which is convenient to shop. I like shopping in the mall but my husband on the other hand cant stand shopping for hours and i dont like picking clothes right away either. But he doesnt like buying clothes online either. He told me if the size is not right it is time consuming to return an item and not to mention that i cant make sure of if the cloth is nice or not. How about you guys which do you think is convenient to shop? looking forward to hear your views tnx!

shopping online is convenient but come to think of it...the price of shipping and handling is expensive. also at times pictures can be deceiving. it may look nice on pics but once you buy it...you'll just get disappointed. i prefer to buy in the mall so i could see the texture and i am satisfied with what i bought

You have your point, sometimes buying clothes online is not as good as it looks on picture. But sometimes i also read magazines and find tips on which online store offers good quality clothes. But im still keeping my finger cross. I got dizzy this past months now that im pregnant which is one of the reason why i am taking into consideration buying stuff online.

hello friend, i think it just depends where you live.For me, i live in the village,the mall and the post office are all in the street 3 kilometers far away from my home.So whatever i choose, i have to go to the street to get the goods.But in fcat,i prefer the mall.Because i could touch the goods firstly before i pay for it.But if i use the shopping online method, i couldn't touch it maybe.so i trust my feeling a lot.I think shopping in the mall is safer than shoping online. and in fcat, i think the mall is convenient to me.lol good luck

Hello my friend! MY hubby never liked mall shopping and he hates it when I scout around the mall. It drives him crazy! and I don't want to go shopping on line, it maybe convenient to some but it could bring much hassle when it does not fit you. The only solution my hubby proposed is I go shop without him

That is one of the things i am taking into consideration. I was wondering if i bought the right size of clothes by just merely guessing what size of clothes will fit me. Sometimes clothes can be smaller and sometimes it is way too big too. That is the advantage of buying it to a store coz you can fit the dress and see if it fits right on you.

It is diffinatley more convient to shop online saving on gas and time. I find it to be more boring to stay in the house shopping then to get out of the house and do something with my family. I also don't end up returning as much when I buy in person since I can see up close what I am getting and know that it is exactly what I am looking for.

I like shopping both online and in the mall but mostly I shop in the mall. I only shop online to buy something much cheaper and free shipping. I never bought clothes online because I have to try it first before buying it.So I prefer buying clothes and shoes in the mall.

I have done shopping online and shopping in the mall. Both have its own disadvantages and advantages. If I were to ask, I would rather shop in the mall although it really requires lot of time to find something that you really want to buy but you can check the item you are buying. With online shopping, it is good if you know the size/s that fits good to you, but the thing is it may not be the one you have expected.

I guess shopping online would be more convient if you don't mind the waiting.
