Secrets to Buying Clothes

Hey everyone!
This post is going to consist of a few secrets that I have learned over the years to find clothes that fit well and are super flattering. 

Undergarments
1) When buying bras, make sure that it fits well on the second latch. Usually there are 3 different latches across the band, I know that I usually go for one that fits well on the first latch, but it's better to buy one that fits well on the second latch because it gives you room to grow or shrink a little. 
2) Also, remember that with bras, when you go up a cup size you go down a band size and vice versa. So a 32B is the same as a 34 A. 

Top
1) Keep in mind what your going to have to wear underneath it. If it's a tight top and see through, go up a size so you can wear a cami underneath it!
2) Buy out of season. Summer is the best time to buy sweaters on clearance at stores like Forever 21 and Hollister. Also, Winter is the best time to buy swimwear. It might not make sense to buy out of season clothes, but you can save some money!

Bottoms
1) Buy jeans that are tighter rather than looser. If you can't find a pair that fits, go for the tighter (but still sort of well fitting) pair because jeans stretch and if you go for the looser pair, it'll stretch too much. 
2) Shop online. Some stores like abercrombie and hollister don't carry all of the short, regular, and long jeans in store, so if you know you're size, you can shop online and get a really well fitting pair of jeans. 

I hope you enjoyed my secrets to buying clothes! I can also do ones on accessories and makeup if you want it, so let me know in the comments. Also, leave your secrets to buying clothes in the comments!
