Online clothes shopping is not for me

My mom forwarded me an email from a clothing store. It's having a huge sale today only. She wants me to shop around and look for things to buy. Light jackets and clothing. For me and for her. I just went to the link and browsed for a few minutes and I am done. I am not enjoying this at all and even find it a bit annoying. I don't mind browsing for stuff in an actual store, even for a long time, but this online browsing is not for me. I am gonna tell her I can't do this. When I shop for clothes I wanna see the stuff in person. Feel it. Look at the contents label. Try it on and look at myself in the mirror. If I like it, and the price is right, I buy it. If I don't like it, I don't buy it. Can't do that with online shopping. Plus, if something doesn't fit after I buy it online I have to deal with returns, which is something I don't wanna do.

There are a few online clothing companies that will send you clothes each month for free to try on. If you like the clothes, you can purchase them and keep them. If you don't like the clothes, you can send them back from of charge. I know Amazon has a service like that too. I don't use it, but I have often thought that it would be a good way for me to try new styles and new types of clothes, because I won't go out and shop for them myself.

@paigea I get that there are more options to choose from online if you shop at a store's website as opposed to going to that same physical store. But I'd rather go to the actual store. A much better shopping experience. And most likely if I buy something online I will have to go back to actual store for returns anyway. At least, glad that's an option. I'd rather do that than ship the stuff back and worry if it will get to where it needs to get and if I will get my money back.
