Shopping for Clothes at Amazon?

At this point, everyone and their mother, heck everyone and their grandmother, probably knows that you can buy just about anything on

What started out as a convenient and inexpensive way to buy books has quickly become the easiest way to buy everything from grocery staples to electronics.

As much as I support our local businesses, and nothing beats the expert help and attention you get from a local specialty retailer, there are times when I just cannot get out shopping with three kids.  And if I know exactly what I want, Amazon is often the perfect way to to buy it.

But I have to admit that I never thought much about buying clothing on Amazon, even though I am comfortable purchasing clothing, especially children’s clothing, online.  Amazon sent me a credit to buy some back-to-school clothing at their Kids’ Clothing Shop and, although I am not a total convert, I am impressed!

You can shop by size, type of clothing, color, or brand…and look at all the amazing brands! I see some of our favorites, like Tea Collection and Zutano, plus our go-to wardrobe staples, like Carter’s.

One difficulty I ran into is because of my daughters current size–she straddles the line between toddler and girl sizes.  So, sometimes she is a 4/5 or a 5 if the brand has one, sometimes a 5T, and even occasionally a 6.  Since every brand sizes their clothing differently, it is difficult to know how to search.  Amazon does, however, allow you to select multiple sizes, which is a big help.

You won’t find quite the same selection you will find at specific retailers., Also, since you are searching across multiple brands it is sometimes hard to know if separates will coordinate.

You will, however, find a wide variety of brands, all in one place, including brands generally found in specialty boutiques.  And many of the items are available for Amazon Prime shipping–so they will ship fast for free.

I bought my daughter a cute Disney Fairies Fashion Set and this lovely Tea Collection Amate Aves Raglan Dress.

The big advantages of shopping at Amazon are price, convenience, and comprehensiveness–and the boutique definitely follows through on the first two.  Given Amazon’s success and the website’s intelligent features, I suspect the clothing shop will soon increase its offerings and find innovative ways to match customers with the right clothing.

    I have observed that of all sorts of insurance, health care insurance is the most debatable because of the conflict between the insurance coverage company’s necessity to remain adrift and the user’s need to have insurance cover.
