As you might have figured out, I like to bargain shop. I’m always hunting for a good deal. A few different people told me about Shein, so I decided to check them out. I was warned that some product photos may be deceiving. To start, I only ordered 3 items as testers. Here’s the break down:

  1. Palm Print Romper – $16

This was a hit! I absolutely loved it right out of the bag. The material feels good, although slightly sheer (nude underwear is a must), and the shape is flattering. One thing that annoys me with some rompers is the length of the “shorts.” Too often, they’re too short and show too much cheek. Not these ones. The length is perfect and I feel comfortable in them. For reference, I’m 5’7″ and wearing a size small, and I’ve been told I have a long torso. The only issue I really had is that the top part is a little loose on me. But that’s probably because I don’t have a lot going on in the chest department. I had to wear my “big bra” to keep it up (one of those magical Victoria’s Secret strapless pushups that adds 2 cup sizes). Otherwise, some fashion tape would’ve done the job. Overall rating: 9/10.

2. Wrap Dress – $14

Coming out of the bag, I wasn’t so sure. In the picture, it looked very flowy and soft when in reality the fabric is a little stiff – more like a men’s dress shirt material. And it does feel a little on the cheap side, BUT REMEMBER, it’s only $14 so that’s to be somewhat expected. When I first tried it on, I looked like a wrinkly blue blob. I threw in the dryer for 30 min to get the wrinkles out and that changed the game. It finally had that pretty flowyness to it like in the picture. In the future, I think I would also opt for a statement belt to help break up all the blue. Overall rating – 7/10

3. Winking T-Shirt – $9

You can’t really mess up a T-shirt. This was exactly what I expected. Fabric feels nice. Print is simple and cute! And for 9 bucks, how could you not get it? Overall rating: 10/10

Shipping

I was afraid shipping might take forever, but they were true to their website, which states that orders usually arrive within 6-8 days. Also, their return policy seems pretty simple. You can return items within 60 days.

In conclusion, I was very satisfied! I usually prefer to do my shopping in person, but I’ll definitely be ordering from here again. The deals are too good. I hope this was helpful! Happy shopping 😉
