Shopping online Successfully
There are ways that you can shop online with satisfaction. Here is a break- down of types of fabric that can help you when purchasing any products, especially for women's clothes.
I always take into consideration:
1. Quality of the fabric.
2. The outfit must be well-tailored.
3. The body-con or bandage dress should sit comfortably
4. Soft material or stiff material, I look for a good fit
Here is the list of materials that can assist you when making an order:

(b) Flannel is light in weight and great for cold-weather clothing. It can be from wool, cotton ,or synthetic fiber. The majority of winter clothing is flannel.
(c) Linen is also a lightweight fabric that breathes well in hot weather. The problem with linen it wrinkles easily and require gentle washing.
