If you find out what is the right size for your clothes, shopping will become so much easier, since you can start shopping online.

Many successful working mothers enjoy shopping both in H&M and Old Navy. For instance, Staci Riordan, executive director of the Fashion Law Project at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, whose clients are H&M, Lucky Brands, Armani Express is claiming: “That I was already a huge fan helped me become their lawyer. We all wear H&M. I love what they are and stand for: leading purchasers of organic cotton, and proponents of sustainable fashion, clean water, women and good wages.”(2)
Amalah, the reporter of the new media and research company “Alpha Mom”, confesses that she really likes to mix different kinds of brands in her everyday looks: “Tees and tanks from Old Navy, a blazer from H&M, a knit casual dress I picked up on the sale rack somewhere. I’ll pair cheap jewelry from Target with a dress from BCBG, but if the dress is from Target I wear expensive heels and a Tiffany pendant.”(3)
Gap is also considered as one of the most comfortable with affordable prices and high-quality clothes brands: “And so instead of owning 10 pairs of jeans I got on sale at the Gap mostly because they were on sale, I own just a couple pairs of designer jeans that are just drop-dead holy-crap fabulous and look good with EVERYTHING.”(3)
