6 Top Tips for Buying Swimwear online

6 Top Tips to Buying Swimwear online

Yes, summer is here and it is time to think about all the fun you can have in the sun!  But wait!  I need some new swimwear!  Oh…  But what about those few winter kilos that haven’t quite shifted yet…  No problem!  You can shop for swimwear in the safety of your own home and don’t have to brave the Christmas Shopping rush!

Thanks to Monica Bugno on 22 September 2013 who, with her fantastic Sirens Swimwear range (all available online!), has compiled for us all the 6 Top Tips for Buying Swimwear online…  Thanks Monica!…..

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who generally hates shopping for swimwear. Now don’t get me wrong, I love swimwear, I just dislike the process. I hate the browsing, the decisions, the sometimes unhelpful/judgmental sales staff, the cramped change room, the hideously unflattering lighting, the pressure to make a decision on the spot, the whole kit and kaboodle.
Therefore, I’m genuinely surprised that I never really considered buying swimwear online before finding Sirens, but now that I’ve seen the light, I’m never going back!

So here are my 6 tips on how to buy your swimwear online and to ensure your swimwear shopping experience is a pleasant one this summer.

1. Know what you’re looking for

Generally you will know what style of swimwear will suit you (not sure, click HERE for our online buying guide). You will have been buying swimwear for a number of years and know what styles do or don’t flatter your body shape. Also consider what you will be using it for, lazing prettily by the pool, sweating it up in a game of beach volleyball or going for a surf?

2. Determine your size

Take your measurements and study the sizing guide on the Sirens website HERE. Still unsure, call the friendly team for some assistance. Also read reviews to get a feel for sizing.

3.  Unsure of your size…Order your favourite swimsuit in 2 sizes

Order the size you think you need according to the size chart, and then order the next size that’s most likely to fit. Keep in mind that swimwear is often on the small size. If there are a couple of different styles you think you like, then try them too!

4. Just try it, what have you got to lose?

You can’t know how it will look until you try it on. This is truer for swimsuits than for any other piece of clothing. It might look awesome or it might be downright embarrassing, but if a certain design catches your eye, you have to try it to find out.

5. Try them on and see how they look

Try your swimsuits on in good lighting, when you’re in a good mood, the kids are in bed or out playing, in the privacy of your own home or if you have a couple of supportive girls friends, invite them around for a couple of wines to get their opinion. I am amazed at how many emails we get from ladies who have come back to buy more after amazing comments from their husband/partner. Always good for the confidence smiley. Sirens also hold in-home consultations in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.

6. Return the swimwear that doesn’t work for you

This is the easiest part. Simply return any of the swimsuits that are the wrong size or don’t fit and Sirens will refund you the purchase price and cover the cost of posting them back. It’s a no lose scenario really!

If your still not sure about buying online OR Still want to try before you buy there are two options. Give the friendly team in the office a call, they are friendly and trained to handle any queries or concerns you might have.  Also, If you would still like to try before you buy or if you have a couple of girlfriends who want to try our Sirens Swimwear in the privacy of your own home, we can arrange an in-home consultation, just give us a call on  1300 306 977 .
