A few years ago, I stumbled upon the site SHEIN. At first glance, it seemed like heaven. Adorable, trendy pieces with most price tags under $20. There had to be a catch right? After reading multiple SHEIN reviews I decided to test it myself. *update- I’ve now been shopping from Shein for over 6 years! One of my favorite spots. Since then I’ve mastered I’ve mastered all the tricks & excited to share my full SHEIN shopping guide & review with you guys!
How to Order:
There’s so much to love on their site. I especially love it because they typically have super trendy pieces without the super high price tag. There are a few things to know before placing an order:
–I typically size up one size. If it’s something that looks extra small in the photos or on the model, I’ll size up twice. I feel like with cheaper clothes, bigger always looks a little better.
-ALWAYS splurge for expedited shipping, because expedite is slow. I always pay for the fastest shipping, it’s typically $12 and worth every penny. Even with the expedited shipping it usually takes orders 7-10 days to arrive.
Q: Is this site legit?!
A: Yes! Believe it or not, it is. I have ordered from them multiple times. In fact, I try to avoid their site because they have new arrivals everyday and it’s dangerous for my back account.
Q: What’s the quality like?
A: I would say it’s comparable to Forever 21 and even some Asos pieces. When I went to shoot this post, I actually grabbed a few pair of shorts that I thought were from SHEIN but were actually from Asos. It may not last you years to come, but for the price of a cocktail- you cannot beat it!
Q: Have you tried their swimwear?
A: Yes! I love their swimwear. As I previously mentioned, it’s comparable to Amazon pieces in both quality and price. I do size up in most swimwear purchases.
Q: What’s your favorite thing to order from them?
A: Personally- EVERYTHING. Over the years it’s evolved from two piece sets to dresses to accessories and beyond. I love that you can snag so many trendy finds for such an affordable price. Most recently I purchased swimwear for Foster and it was a hit, too!
