Shein Review and Try On

A lot of you have asked me to do a Shein review and answer some questions about shopping there. So I did a little shopping haul and rounded up some of the top questions you had and answered them here for you! If you know just a few things about shopping at Shein, you’ll find the experience a lot easier, and save a lot of money on clothes! Most pieces are between $10-$15, and I often see the same things selling at boutiques for three times as much!

Shein Review & Common Questions

Shopping at Shein can be overwhelming at first. They have sooooo many items, and their organization is all over the place. I recommend being pretty specific with your key words when using their search option. Or, if you just want to browse for fun, you can use their tabs to look at certain categories, such as tops, bottoms, etc. They also have a newly added tab (which they literally add hundreds of things to every day). Here’s a little shein review of your commonly asked questions!

Question 1: Sizing

This is the most common question I received from you. And it is totally understandable, because Shein does not have a common sizing system for their clothes. Each piece is unique in it’s sizing. I do feel like Shein has gotten better in the last couple years in being more uniform in their sizing, though. But, the saving grace here is that Shein gives a detailed measurement guide for each piece. You need to use this! Check the sizing guide on every item (comes in cm or in). Which means you need to know your measurements! Use a tape measure to measure your bust, waist, and hips.

How to Measure Yourself

When choosing a size on Shein, I also like to look at customer reviews (if any). People often note if the item runs true to size for the measurements given, or to order up or down a size.

Question 2: Quality

Another common question I received from you was how the quality of Shein’s items compare to other stores you may shop from. I have found some amazing quality pieces, and some that aren’t so amazing, so I think it varies from piece to piece. Most items are pretty good quality for the price you pay, though. For comparison, I think the quality is similar to what you would find at H&M or Forever 21. Some of their sweaters and coats though are really great quality that is comparable to what you would buy at a boutique.

One thing you can do to check quality is look at the reviews left on the piece. A lot of people post photos close up, or with the item on, so you can see how it compares to the stock photo, or if they think the quality is good for the price. I always check this. If an item doesn’t have a review, you may have to take a gamble. But, again, for the most part I think the quality is pretty good! You can always just let me weed out the good and bad ones for you, though, and shop what I post haha.

Question 3: Plus Size Options

A few people asked if there are plus size options, or sizes bigger than a Medium or Large. I actually think Shein has a great range of plus size clothes! Since having my baby, my pants size has gone up to a 10/12, which is right on the verge of L/XL. So I have actually been buying some bottoms and skirts from their plus selection lately. I have also noticed that in their more popular pieces, Shein has been good at offering both regular and plus options. Definitely check out what they have!

Question 4: Is the Website Reliable?

I don’t blame people for wondering if ordering from Shein is safe. In the past I have ordered from other Chinese based websites and had my card info stolen shortly after. But I have never had a problem ordering with Shein. They also offer Paypal, so if you want to be extra safe with your card information, use that option!

Question 5: Returns

Shein has a really easy return system. If you don’t like something, log into your account online and access your orders. Click the item you want to return, and it will guide you step by step through the return process. You will be able to print out a return label, and you can stick that to the package it came in, or if you have an extra box lying around (which who doesn’t these days? Thank you Amazon Prime haha). The process time may take a couple weeks before they receive back your order and put the money back into your account, but it is relatively painless!

Shein Review: Let’s Talk Accessories!

Shein has AMAZING prices on accessories like earrings, necklaces, and headbands. I love getting things that are trendy and I want to try out, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on in case I don’t like it. For example, the chunky headband trend! They sell these headbands for around $3 each, which I see selling for $15-$20 for the same thing at boutiques! Their earrings and necklaces usually range for $2-$3 as well. You can save major dollars on their accessories alone! Here are some of my favorites that I’ve bought lately:

My favorite earrings: (Only $2!!)

Trendy Chunky Headbands: (Only $3!!)
