, you’ll love shopping for clothes online. Apparel shopping has overtaken electronics as the consumer darling of cyberspace, and for good reason. With great photos and easy-to-navigate pages, finding that little black dress and actually having it fit once you get it home has never been easier.
Before you start checking to see how much available space you have in your closet for an expanded wardrobe, learn a few online clothes-buying tips that will help to make sure that the designer handbag of your dreams doesn’t turn out to be a fashion disaster only a hobo could love.
Keep it Real
Go ahead and tell your boyfriend that you’re a size two, but make sure to tell your online clothing retailer the truth. This may mean a painful few minutes with a measuring tape, but the results will be worth it. Use the charts and instructions on the clothing sites you visit to calculate your stats, and select the right sizes for your current measurements. It’s the best way to ensure that you’ll get a perfect fit every time. Some sites will even give you hints, like letting you know that a particular coat style runs large or small.
Make Security a Top Priority
Most online retailers are honest, but it only takes one unscrupulous or phishing site to put your credit card information at risk. These tips will help you stay safer:

New York Times’ First (and Feminist) Female Reporter
In 1869, a strange fashion trend was afoot among the hippest London ladies. With the assistance of canes and mismatched shoes or specialty pairs with different heel heights, they affected what was called the Alexandra Limp.
“A monstrosity has made itself visible among the female promenaders in Princes Street,” an article in the North British Mail reported. “It is as painful as it is idiotic and ludicrous.”
These young Victorians were emulating fashion icon of the day Princess Alexandra of Denmark who had married the Prince of Wales in 1863. Well-heeled women copied the gorgeous and beloved royal’s personal style, from the pearl chokers she wore to mask a scar on her neck right down to a temporary limp she developed after falling ill with rheumatic fever that left her with a stiff knee.
When Queen Victoria died in 1901, the princess became the queen consort of King Edward VII. By then, the Alexandra Limp had long fallen out of vogue. Not only had many fashion observers considered it unattractive and downright crass, it was officially usurped, a newspaper at the time reported, by a new skirt style whose tightly tapered hemline reduced women’s gait to a mere shuffle.

What Are the Benefits of Inversion Boots?

Inversion boots, otherwise known as gravity boots, allow for complete, inverted suspension from a stabilized horizontal bar or inversion rack. The boots strap around the ankles and attach to the bar, allowing you to hang safely, upside-down and otherwise unsupported. This type of therapy benefits the body in various ways.
Inversion therapy elongates the spine by allowing the body to hang freely, head first, against the force of gravity. This creates natural traction on the spine

, using your own body weight. Lengthening the spine relieves pressure and compression around the nerve roots and discs of the spine, and also increases the space around the vertebrae. Less pressure around nerve roots and discs alleviates back pain

.
The vertebral discs act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae, keeping them separated and the spine flexible. Composed mostly of water at birth, these discs lose moisture over time due to the natural aging process, the stress of gravity and normal daily activity. Nonweight bearing activity, such as inversion, allows the discs time to rehydrate by soaking up essential fluids and nutrients they need to remain plump and supple to maintain their cushioning effect.
The core muscles include the muscles of the abdominals, and the middle and lower back. These muscles, essential to functional movement, support the torso and help to maintain good posture, balance and strength. Some exercises, designed to strengthen this area of the body, can cause added pressure and possible injury to the lumbar area of the spine if performed incorrectly. Inversion boots allow you to perform specific core exercises in proper alignment without the risk of injury. Inversion therapy improves posture by realigning the spine to its natural “S” curve.
Certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure or heart disease, or certain eye conditions, such as glaucoma or detached retina, make inversion therapy risky. Please check with your healthcare provider before beginning this or any other new exercise or therapy. Other contraindications for inversion therapy include pregnancy, ventral hernia, hiatal hernia and extreme obesity. Using inversion boots requires a certain amount of physical fitness to clip in and out of them while hanging upside down. When new to this type of therapy, use a trained spotter or partner to ensure safety.

Does an Elliptical Machine Make Your Calves Bigger?

Using the elliptical will make your body lose weight more than it will gain muscle. Ellipticals largely target the lower body, and while you may see a trace of muscle gain, your calves will likely become shapelier more than bigger. Cardio of all forms does not provide enough load for your muscle to experience noticeable hypertrophy.
Elliptical machines come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all with varying functions. Most machines allow you to change the ramp and resistance, making it easier to target parts of your leg over others. Depending on the height of the ramp, the level of resistance and speed that you’re moving, you can work your calves the entire time you are on the machine. While they will be working with every motion, it is possible to change the settings to make them work harder.
Cardio is typically done as a way to burn calories and fat. Harvard Health Publications shows a 155-pound individual burning approximately 335 calories in 30 minutes on the elliptical

. Cardio is going to be better at burning the fat that surrounds your muscles. If you burn fat from around your muscles, they will become more prominent and may appear leaner

.
Building muscle requires a certain degree of stress to be placed on your muscles. Muscle growth occurs after tiny tears are produced through strength training. The repair process is when the muscle fibers actually increase in size. The elliptical will not put enough load on your calves to produce these tears and make the muscle bigger. It is possible, however, to make your calves stronger. Muscle movement, especially with your body weight, can increase the strength of your muscles without increasing their size.
To make your calves bigger, you will need to do things like heel raises several times per week. Exercises that focus on that muscle will allow it to tone and increase in size. While cardio will be good at burning the layer of fat that covers your muscles, it will not be enough to change the size. Strength train two or three times per week to see a noticeable difference in the size of your calves.
