My Online Shop Is Now Ready: How Do I Make It As Safe As I Can?

We’ve seen and heard about the recent events as far as online fraud goes. More and more of us are buying goods over the internet, and with this comes an inevitable increase in concern over credit and debit card fraud. However, there are things you can put in place to protect both yourself and your customers from the perils of online scamming.
First off, any reputable ecommerce software platform should let you create an online shop for a low, fixed monthly price. It’s pretty much a given that with the boom in online shopping, all companies underneath the ‘e-tail’ umbrella should have a space on the internet to advertise and sell their products. Having access to your own ecommerce website isn’t new news; perhaps understanding how to gain customer confidence is.
In other words, your customers ought to safe in the knowledge that their personal details and credit/debit information is in great hands. And this, as a respective online shop owner, is your responsibility. Where newer and/or smaller businesses are concerned, it’s even more important to build up customer trust and this means getting it right from the offset. Clients are less likely to hand over their sensitive data if they see no good reason to do so.
The basic things you must do to create a professional and trustworthy image are listed below:
1. Display the padlock symbol
Any ecommerce website using secure technology should begin their web address with ‘https’ accompanied by a padlock symbol further down the page. There’s nothing complicated about taking steps to ensure security; all personal details exchanged online should be protected. The way to check that you’re on a secure page is to check the security information by double clicking on padlock symbol. Simple.
2. Use a respected payment gateway
Whilst there are many payment providers to choose from, we find many online shop owners turning to SagePay, PayPal and Google Checkout to process their customers’ card information. It’s advisable to check with you ecommerce provider which payment gateways are compatible with your online shop, then go from there. Note that by using a third party system you are passing on the responsibility of stockpiling sensitive credit/debit card, protecting both yourself and your online business.
You must take care not to put your client’s personal information at risk by attempting to use offline processing methods. Should you use a streamline terminal or PDQ once an order has been placed, you are paving the ground for potential hacking and risk extortionate fines – so do refrain. Make your ecommerce website look and feel like a safe place to shop, and you can’t go far wrong.…

A Guide To Finding The Perfect Pants

All women are always on the lookout for a flattering pair of pants. Pants which are too tight only emphasize your flaws, making a crease and unwelcome bulges. The zipper may be strained and open slightly, making the wearer appear overweight. The perfect pair of pants is one which will cover up flaws and give the wearer a flattering silhouette. We all want to look good and a big part of that is getting the right fit in our clothing.
Before shopping for a new pair of pants, take careful and accurate measurements. This way, you’ll be able to shop for the right size from the get-go. Take a look at this chart to find your size from your measurements; the measurements are given in both inches and centimetres to help you in online clothes shopping.
Size | Waist | Hips
10 (S) | 70cm (27 inches) | 97cm (38 inches)
12 (S) | 75cm (29 inches) | 102cm (40 inches)
14 (M) | 80cm (31 inches) | 107cm (42 inches)
16 (M) | 85cm (33 inches) | 112cm (44 inches)
18 (L) | 90cm (35 inches) | 117cm (46 inches)
20 (L) | 95cm (37 inches) | 122 cm (48inches)
22 (XL) | 100cm (39 inches) | 127 cm (50 inches)
24 (XL) | 105 cm (41 inches) | 132 cm (52 inches)
26 (2XL) | 110 cm (43 inches) | 137 cm (54 inches)
28 (2XL) | 115 cm (45 inches) | 142 cm (56 inches)
30 (3XL) | 120 cm (47 inches) | 147 cm (58 inches)
When you use the chart, always select pants that fit the larger of your waist or hips. For example if you have a 95cm waist and 127cm hips you will need to choose size 22. Regardless of whether the pants fit the waist or not, if they don’t fit through the hips, your derriere will tug the pant leg upward causing the legs to become too short, forming creases or opening the zipper.
Always take your hip measurements at your hip’s widest point. If the tops of your thighs are wider than your hips, then take this measurement here instead to ensure a better fit. Keep in mind that some clothing manufacturers have their own sizing charts, which means you should use their measurements to determine size.
The next step is to take a measurement of your inseam. Your pant legs should be long enough to touch the top of your shoe, but not so long that you will step on them. If you have an inseam of less than 29 inches (75 centimetres), then petite sizes are where you should be searching. If you have an inseam which is longer, then regular sizes are for you – you can always have them re-hemmed if needed. If you have an inseam which is longer than 32 inches (82 centimetres), then tall sizes are what you need.
A gathered waist emphasizes weight so stick with straight pants to disguise a large hip and waist but use a longer jacket length to hide it. In an effort to hide their extra weight, some women select baggy or loose fitting pants. These actually make the person wearing them look larger. Short-legged women can use tiny vertical stripes to make their legs look longer and give the illusion of height. A wide belled bottom actually is best for the longer legged woman.
When you use your exact measurements to purchase pants, you’ll find that you have better luck finding the right fit to flatter your figure. Just make certain that you take the measurements in your normal relaxed mode. These are only for you to see, so if you suck in your stomach and attempt to make them as small as possible, you defeat the purpose and won’t get a good fit and that’s the reason you want the measurements.…

Lingerie Tips For Plus Size Women

Every woman needs to feel good and to have fun with every piece of lingerie she wears. Forget lingerie that is too revealing, too skimpy, too tight, too trashy or just plain not you. Lingerie is as individual as the woman who wears it. With a little effort, you can find lingerie that feels like it was created just for you.

If purchasing underwear is a joy of yours, yet that is all you know concerning lingerie, then you are only at the start of your journey into the opulent world of lingerie. Specific bras and panties can make a woman feel sexy, seductive, passionate and can even bring out their animal side! Wearing sexy lingerie is a sure way to spark a fire in the bedroom, yet it can also work wonders when you choose a cozy night in front of the television with your significant other.

As fashion becomes more accepting of the plus size woman, the lingerie options available to her will increase. New fabrics that are comfortable, colorful and sensuous can be transformed into gorgeous lingerie for women of any size. We will now show you just some of these exciting new possibilities.

Baby doll nighties (also know as chemises) are one of the most popular of all types of lingerie. The baby doll chemise is very flattering to the plus size lady as it plays up her curves while downplaying the parts of her body she you may like the least. The baby doll is sexy, playful and very figure enhancing. It can also be naughty as opposed to nice when it is called for.

Most babydoll chemises are made from material that are very lightweight and soft such as cotton, lace, net and silk. Some come in a bustier style similar to a bra while others are more relaxed for comfort. The conventional babydoll nightie is made with spaghetti straps, a plunging neckline (to varying extents) and sports an empire waist. Most babydolls fall somewhere in the thigh area.

Sheer and lacy is not necessarily the same thing as naked. If you’re a plus size woman and you shy away from lingerie like that, then you haven’t found the type that’s right for you yet. Avoid sheer lingerie if you find it’s too short, too tight, or just plain too skimpy. You can find long, lacy sheer nightgowns that will look stunning on you. You could say that long nightgowns resemble floor length ball gowns that sweep across the floor; they’ll give you a sense of beauty, elegance, and sophistication.

Purchase full length filmy negligees or mini length babydoll styles. The short ones are perfect in the heat of the summertime. Also shop for full but sensual night shirts and really cute babydoll pajama sets. Net coordinates like a cami and short shorts are other appealing garments to keep in your bedroom closet if you are a full bodied gal who wears larger sizes.…
