When You Order Something Online Versus When It Arrives.

There's an upside and a downside when it comes to shopping online. The upside is that you can shop at any time or the day or night from the comfort of your own home. With just a click of the mouse, you've got a virtual cart full of stuff you probably don't even need. But what happens when something you ordered misses its mark on your expectation? Well, here are some common mistakes people make and how you can totally avoid them.

#1. Shopping online might seem like the perfect solution, but expectations and reality are often worlds apart.

What you see online might not be what you end up getting when UPS or FedEx knocks on your door, and it's annoying, but tends to happen a lot more often than you think, especially when you fail to read the full description.

#2. Reading the description of a product before you buy is so essential and can spare yourself serious disappointment.

Reading the small print is vital in anything you buy because when you buy a dress it might be a tad too small or a size too large. It might not even be the right color, but then again, you didn't read that little disclaimer that says "product may vary from image".

#3. Sometimes the fault doesn't always lie in the online store, but in yourself.

If you thought that there was a chance that you could cosplay as Eleven from "Stranger Things" and you're a dude that's 6 ft tall and has a full on beard, then you were headed for disappointment anyway.

Sometimes the fault doesn't always lie in the online store, but in yourself.

#4. Checking the size of an outfit to see if it's available in your body type is a plus.

Most dresses come in different sizes and colors to meet the needs of their various clients, but if you buy something this tacky without looking at the measurements first, then you probably deserve what you get.

#5. Mistakes happen even when you buy something at a department store, but it's worse when you buy online.

So check the return policy for the site you're using before buying online, because some stores don't offer a reasonable return policy if an article of clothing doesn't fit or if a product failed to meet your expectations.
