Steals on tanks and tees – H&M is a great store overall. If you are looking for some staple items, e.g., plain tanks or tee shirts, you can always get them for under ten dollars. In fact, today I got three for eighteen! Not too shabby. I like a place that's dependable, and this store is dependable.
The store is also great if you like to take time to browse the racks. You can often find a pretty original piece that is stylish and fun, without paying too much. However, if you're not in the mood for crowds or a bit of disorganization, I recommend staying away from this store. There are other H&M locations that get less foot traffic than this downtown location, so if you'd rather have that type of experience, head over to the Cambridgeside Galleria or a mall outside the city. This store has a rapid turnover of merchandise so they are always getting new things, and it is constantly reinventing the layout. Personally, I find it a great place to go during lunch to get away from work and clear my head. It can be overwhelming with the swarms of people, but I can't resist the $5 good quality tee shirts and tank tops and $15 sale cardigans... I know I will wear these all spring and summer long!
Value for Money – This place is one of store you must go to shop. They have a huge selection of clothes. You do have to spend a good amount of time there though because there is just so much to look through. And the price is value for money.
Variety At It's Best – H&M is my favorite store. I recently shopped at the Newbury Street store that just opened. There's so much variety to choose from at H&M. Style and trends go in and out so often and with the great and affordable prices that H&M has it's alot easier to keep up with the latest trends. H&M has alot to offer; both in sizes and prices. You can't go wrong with H&M.
Great prices – If you're looking for a deal, H&M is the place to shop. The one on Newbury St. is huge with an equally as big selection of clothes. You do have to spend a good amount of time there though because there is just so much to look through. The selection is good, and ranges from casual to work clothes. I have gotten many clothes there to wear to work, and they have lasted pretty well. One of the only cons is that some of the shops are disorganized with clothes mixed up (I find this at the Cambridge H&M), so sometimes you have to spend a lot of time looking through the clothes. If you go on a weekend, prepare for a crowd and a wait for the dressing room. Other than that, its a great place to shop!
A Swedish clothing superstore offers big-city style at bargain basement prices. – In Short
This Swedish superstore is clean, bright and white--and jam packed with color-coded racks of clothes. Hip dance music throbs in the background. Bring the whole family: you'll find departments for men, women, plus sizes, kids, teens and babes. A-line skirts and shirtdresses come in shades from cotton candy to rose and are dirt cheap. Men's punk-rock tees, suit jackets and leather jackets are also surprisingly affordable.
BUY AT H&M! BUT... – The store is great but take this advice before going to the store, it's going to be crowded!! and people may be in your same position in a crowded place; annoyed. Their clothing is in high demand because of quality and low prices. Be patient with staff, they are trying to do their best in such a crowded place, try to help them by not being messy and impatient. I suggest you visit this store during non busy days, mondays thru thursdays, and you'll find it more pleasant and less crowded. Unfortunately H&M doesn't have a stock, everything is on display!! so, they may not have what you liked, (you can try finding it at the new H&M store on Newbury St or Galleria Mall in Cambridge) the other con is that sizes are really confusing, so try on two or three different sizes or ask the staff for help.
Store full of cheap merchandise!!! – This store is very much hyped, and I have no idea why. I visited the store last week
and I left shaking my head. Very overpriced for polyester clothing (atleast in the men's areas). There tailored clothing was all made in china or ukraine countries, and should be bing sold for at least half the price they are asking. Trust me, as I worked for 4 years in a men's store as a buyer.
I LOVE IT – one of the very few stores in boston where the stuff actually fits. finally something for women with hips and breasts.
Clothes shrink two sizes after first washing. Shrink one additional size after each subsequent washing.
too many teenagers...aggghhh!! – After waiting a half hour for a dressing room, I find that all their clothing is made for 90 lb, straight figures. The clothing is cut for a pre-teen bodies, and is quite cheap to top it off. This is a great place for young teen girls, but the fashions are a little too scandlous for professionals.
