One of the best things about shopping on the internet, in my opinion, is the ability to check out what other people are saying about the product you’re purchasing. Of course you sometimes have to weed through reviews from people complaining about irrelevant things, or competitors who are just out to trash talk, but reading some user reviews can really give you a good idea about what’s up.
For example, reviews on this tiered maxi dress. Most of the reviewers have positive things to say about the fit and style, but a couple mention the way the dye ran when they bought it. Another reviewer soaked the dress in cold water to solve the dye issue. All of that info in just a few reviews!
This peasant top got a couple of reviews explaining that it’s sheer and requires a cami—a good thing to know when you’re planning to buy.
The best reviews are ones that give the positives and negatives of any item while providing an overall impression. Often people who are dissatisfied are the only ones who write reviews, but if you really like something, it’s definitely worth telling others. You can read more about how to write a good review here.
