After debating back & forth for months, I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about and placed an order with SHEIN! The Facebook ad’s & super affordable prices finally got the best of me! This week on the blog, I am sharing all about my experience as a first-time customer with SHEIN, sizing, and giving ya’ll my full review! Let’s do it!
First, lets clear up a few common questions you may have regarding the company! Yes, its true, your order does ship from China. I had read mixed reviews on the timeline of their shipping, but my order “shipped” the very next day! When I logged into my SHEIN account, I could see step-by-step how my package was traveling to me, including when it arrived in the U.S, as well as when my USPS tracking number became active. In total, it took 7 days from ordering, to receiving my package! Not bad at all!
Sizing is definitely all over the place! It’s incredibly important to check the size chart for each individual item you are ordering. The sizing for every product is different, so you most likely will not order the same size in everything; I didn’t! When in doubt, size UP! If you’re in between sizes, order the bigger one! I’m typically a medium at most retailers, but from SHEIN I ordered all Large and X-Large! SHEIN does have a “curvy” section on their website as well!
Your first return is free from the U.S! This is what sealed the deal for me! If my first return is totally free, what do I have to lose by ordering once & just trying it out! Thankfully, all of my items fit & I will be keeping them! Looking at the prices online, you really do start to think “this is too good to be true!” Don’t worry, if your order comes & it doesn’t work out, no big deal! Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
You get what you pay for. I am all for affordable fashion, and I love the clothes I got from SHEIN, but I knew they weren’t going to be amazing quality! Don’t get me wrong, the quality is totally acceptable, but don’t expect it to be out of this world. Bear in mind that some dresses/skirts may not be fully lined.
