Good thing is you can order different sizes and different colors or as many items you’d like to try at home.And you can return them within 3 days without extra cost.The delivery truck picks them up.

I once bought a dress I saw in a catalogue (a long time ago). It looked lovely in the photograph on the page but absolutely rubbish in real life. I sent it back. You have to be so careful these days as it is often hard to return goods that aren’t suitable or as good as they look in the ad.
