This place has a good selection of name brand compression hose and related items at good prices. Their shipping is very fast. My only complaint is that they encourage you to buy their house brand hose, which I did, and they weren't very good (compression seemed inadequate and they wouldn't stay up. I sent them back. They do take returns with no problem, even if you have tried the stockings on.

They have clothing designed for travel. However, much of it is not suitable for the way I travel, which is low budget. I don't have much use, for example, for nice dresses,suit jackets, or fancy shawls. It seems like that in recent years they are catering more to business/cruise/high-end travelers. I used to find more practical clothes that were easy to wash in a hotel sink. I still occasionally find something I can use, though. Their quality is generally good although occasionally fabric is kind of unpleasant-feeling. They're very good about returns.

I have used this site a lot for their ratings of sunscreens, cosmetics and toiletries.They rate the safety of products and down-rate companies that don't adequately disclose ingredients. They also have information on a lot of other issues such as food safety. This is a really helpful site if you have concerns about health and environment.

I recommend their on-line veterinary pharmacy. My late lamented cat had a lot of medical problems and I was able to save a lot of money by getting his prescriptions here. Never had a problem with an order

They have clothing and lingerie for large size women. Their house brand clothing is so-so. Some quality is not so good. However, they do have some national brands of bras, such as Bali, that go on sale for about half price, and that come in a wider variety of styles and colors than you can find in the stores. If you have a bra you know fits, I recommend buying more on this site. I also found a good bathing suit here, pretty cheap, and I lucked out on the fit. So, generally, I'd say, shop selectively and watch for sales. They are really good about taking returns, but you'll be out the shipping cost,

They have a very wide selection of vitamins and supplements. Their house brands are inexpensive and they also have other brands at prices much less than in stores. Shipping is prompt and I've never had a problem with an order.

Big selection! But be selective, some of it is junk. Mostly OK though and their customer service is good.

You can reserve hostel beds at larger "official" Hosteling International hostels anywhere in the world. The only complaint I have is that at many hostels you can only reserve a dorm bed, even if the hostel offers private rooms. And some smaller or more remote hostels don't reserve on this site, though usually they are listed. Generally, the site works OK. Something many people don't know is that the Hosteling International hostels are not really "youth" hostels. Us older folks can stay there,too. I can no longer manage an upper bunk. I have had good luck e-mailing the hostel and asking them to give me a lower.

I found good compression hose- footsmart house brand- at a fraction of the price charged by other places. Also socks with non-bind tops that I couldn't find elsewhere. Shipping was relatively prompt and returns handled reasonably well.

I take quite a few supplements, some of them hard to find. This site has a good selection and the best prices I've found. Their shipping is pretty prompt and I've never had a problem with an order.

I've been ordering from their Assets line, which is less expensive than some of their other stuff. It is very good value. Custormer service is generally OK. One problem is that they won't take the VISA card I normally use- they insist that the address I give does not match with what's on the account. I checked with my bank and that's not true. I've never had a problem with this card at any other website. So I have to use a different card to shop at Spanx.

They promptly replaced an order that was lost in transit and sent the replacement by fastest method. Good customer service and their products are really good too.

Inaccurate sizing listed on site and TERRIBLE customer service. In early December, I ordered two silk underwear tops. Before ordering, I called to confirm the sizing, which the site listed as women's, although similar ones were all unisex. They confirmed it was women's sizing. First, the package was delayed in arriving, and they said it was due to truck breakdown. When it finally arrived, the tops were way too big, clearly unisex sizing. I called and they said the website had been wrong about the sizing and they would not charge me for return shipping and would honor the sale price on replacements. It is now 3 weeks since I sent them back and they have not processed the return. They said returns usually take up to 3 weeks to process but this might take 4 due to the holidays.
This is the worst I've experienced in online ordering from any site. This was supposed to be a Christmas present and it is now late January. I will never order from them again.
