Tips For Store Size Chart

Firstly, keep in mind that you should add in the chart with details, details, details! Clothing is not something like one type of apparel, your store must provide sizes that use for specific types of product such as chart for shoes, T-shirt, dresses and even hats.

Secondly, give your customers information that does not require measurement. Do not stop at just the common measurement like length in inches or centimeters. Majority of customers never actually measure their sizes. Instead, your online store needs to have in-depth research to estimate customer sizes by using their heights, weights, age and shoe sizes.

Thirdly, tell the customer about the cut of the item. At which part the clothing need to be fitted or loose so they can adjust the size in order to make the buying process become easier rather than guessing that they fit in some random sizes.
