Shein Online Shopping Review 

Shein Online Shopping Review 

Next up in the fashion review series today  is Shein! Now it’s another online store I found on Facebook and I liked the look of some of the trend pieces they had.

So I chose 4 pieces – 2 t-shirts (although I don’t look like a stereotypical Black Sabbath girl, I’m a bit of a fan 😉), a gold leaf belt which I really liked the look of and a cold shoulder shift dress in my fave colour of the season.
How was the shopping experience? 
The online shopping experience was good, shipping took a while and was on the pricier side if you wanted your items sooner than 6-10 working days from dispatch.
✅ PayPal as a payment option
✅ Wide selection of on trend items
What arrived & how was the quality? 
All items arrived and they weren’t that great! I’m not convinced by the labels claiming to be 100% cotton as they feel very synthetic, stretchy and cheap.
The Black Sabbath t-shirt is the best of the bunch and definitely something I’ll wear multiple times.
Would I recommend them? 
During filming, I would have said yes. However, off camera I tried on everything and hated the dress and Deathly Hallows logo top. They both had 100% cotton written in the label and I wasn’t convinced – the fit of the dress was awful – very baggy and cheap feeling – you can actually hear how synthetic it is in my first impressions video!
So no I wouldn’t recommend them and would direct you to reputable online retailers (Asos being BAE!)
Make sure to check out my unboxing and first impressions video below as I feel that it probably expresses my hatred in a better way than written words and you can see the products in video form.

Let me know if you’ve shopped with Shein and what your thoughts are on them – feel free to disagree with me, I’m open to a debate!
Until next time…

    I have been debating ordering from this website for ages now as they have so much stuff i want and the prices are great but i hear a real mix of reviews so i am just not ready to take the plunge and place the order. I am guessing from your review you wouldn’t order from them again? x

      I wouldn’t order again no, but it’s very mixed in terms of what you order and what you get! Xx

    I should not have given them a second chance……..Extremely poor quality and fit, and if you want to return for a refund you have to pay $30-$50 in postage costs as it goes to the USA (even though it came straight from a factory in China)!! Not quite worth it wen the total cost was $80. Never ever again, don’t take the chance!

    The worst quality fabric & clothing I’ve ever received from an online buy. All 5 items so far fit poorly, fabric feels really cheap & design on shirt that is usually embroidered was a stuck on print:( I wish I had found this review before my shop with them. They seem to have good photos & advertising & that’s it.

      I know right?! I couldn’t get over how bad the fabric on the dress was or how it just hung off of me 😂 but you do see people raving about them – boggles the mind!
