If you are shopping from a store, it’s easy to touch and feel the fabric, try it on and then make a choice. But when it comes to buying kurta online, one has to delve in product description properly to make an informed choice.
- Read the fabric composition carefully to know what textile is being used. If the description seems dodgy, you might want to hold that purchase.
- Check on the size chart to ensure that you have figured correct size for yourself. Do pay attention to whether it is body measurement size guide or garment measurement size guide. Both are different.
- See all images clearly before you shop. Check front, side and back and check for relevant details like elasticated waistband for pants, pockets, buttons, zippers, length of garment etc.
- Care instructions are very important for making any garment last for long in your wardrobe. Follow it diligently.
