Size dresses is one of the main characteristics. But for example in Britain, clothing sizes do not have clearly defined parameters, so products from different manufacturers have different standards. Brand M&S, for example, produces clothes in larger sizes. Brands want to get key audience of buyers, so look at the demographic level, body measurements and clothing sizes this category of people. Then, based on these data, they develop their options clothing. Boohoo brand focused on the youth audience, therefore the size of their products is much less than the brands that focus on older women.
Lucas focuses on the fact that the buyers need to lower the bar to fleeting fashion.

Tips on how to avoid trouble while shopping in the online store:
1. Be choosy buyer. Imagine, if you walk around the store and looking at things on mannequins. On display they look perfect, but have a completely different look when you put them on in the fitting room.
2. The same size can vary in different brands.
3. Check measurements.
4. Make purchases safely. Most sites indicate the model parameters for pictures and offer a size chart, but give the opportunity to order the thing and try it at home.
5. Be realistic. Cheap things are never good quality.
Advertising — the engine of progress. Those who promote this progress, are all gimmicks to lure unsuspecting buyer. Beautiful picture on the Internet does not mean that the premise you will find a stunning dress, not a shapeless bag. Do you often buy clothes in online stores?
