Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

I do 98% of my shopping online. Online shopping is convenient for me and it suits my current lifestyle as I hardly ever go anywhere. I rather pay a delivery charge and try the clothes in the comfort of my home, than head off to a shopping mall. However there are times when I have to go into a store to shop. I prefer buying shoes and jeans in store because I need to make sure they fit. The only time I shop for these online is when I know for a fact that they would suit because I have bought similar pieces/pairs before from the same store. So what happens when I have to go into a mall to shop and use the changing rooms? I just do it and get it over it quickly.

I am sure I am not the only one that hates trying on clothes in the changing room. I have had a few people tell me they rather try on clothes at home and return them if they don’t fit than use the changing rooms. It is strange that many of us feel that way about the changing room. So what is the deal with the changing rooms?

Why I hate trying on clothes in the changing room

These are the reasons why I rather over trying on clothes in changing rooms –

 

I feel exposed

There is little privacy in changing rooms. I find the curtains don’t do a good job and I feel exposed when trying on clothes. I also have this weird feeling that someone could mistakenly/deliberately open the curtains.

 

They are always too small

As a twin mummy, I am usually out and about with the kids. Trying on clothes in small changing rooms with 2 very active toddlers is not ideal. The rooms are usually even too small for just one person, not to mention going in with kids.

 

Waiting for a free room

I am not the most patient person. My entire patience is used up with the twins so I have little or non left for anything else. Hanging around waiting for a free room to try on clothes feels like a waste of valuable time.

Changing rooms are useful

Despite my reservations, I know how useful changing rooms can be. They are great for when you need to ensure that stunning dress fits great or that new brand has the jeans you have your eye on in your size. But I still avoid them when I can. I rather just try my finds at home and buy from trusted brands I know.

 

What are your thoughts on this? Do you avoid the changing rooms like I do?

Outfit Post – Christmas Jumper

We now have 4 more sleeps to Christmas and we can’t wait for the big day to come. I still have somethings I need to get done this weekend in time for Christmas. I am hoping to sit back, relax and do almost nothing from the 24th. Watching the Christmas lights and listening to feel good Christmas songs would do me some good. How are you preparing for the 25th? Are you sorted with the shopping and gifts?

I have been making the most of the festive season by wearing my Christmas jumpers. I wore this blue Christmas jumper some days ago. It was one of the Christmas jumpers I got last year and I really like the design. It does not look to Christmassy, which is how I like my festive jumpers to look like. Plus it keeps me so warm and comfy. It is currently my favourite Christmas jumper in my wardrobe.

Christmas jumpers like many other jumpers, are super easy to style. All you need is a pair of leggings or skinny jeans, paired with boots, and you are good go. Jumpers and leggings are all I am wearing this season. They are the easiest to style, and with the chilly weather outside, they are the smartest pieces to wear. When it gets really cold, I swap the leggings or skinny jeans, for joggers. And that keeps me even warmer.
