I just wanted to share a great tip with new online and especially Ebay buyers to ensure a good positive shopping expirence. Make sure to get exact measurements when purchasing an item. Especially when you are buying a dress or gown. Some dresses (especially formal) will run a size or two smaller. So, be sure to measure yourself accurately
Even if you have to contact the seller directly to ask for exact measurments be sure to do so. Most stores will allow you to exchange or return an item if it does not fit correctly. However, there are some sellers who do not accept exchanges or returns which makes it even more important to get the measurements before you purchase the dress.
