So let’s talk about SheIn or SheInside clothing for a minute today, Ok? I get tons of questions from followers, friends, family, aunties, cousins, everybody and their mama about SheIn. Lol. Is it safe to order? Will I order one thing and get another? Will it be five sizes too small? Does it look the same as the picture? How long will it take to order? I totally get it. To tell you the truth I would have those same questions and reservations about ordering from an online retailer overseas. For me, I need to feel safe about using my credit card and really just getting what I paid for. So let’s address some of the questions I receive about SheIn and why I feel its totally fine for you to order.
Oh and this sweatshirt AND leggings are from SheIn by the way!
Does it fit correctly? Will I order a small and get something a newborn can fit?
Ok, so thats not really the question I get about the newborn, but you know what I mean. I’ve seen the horror stories online about overseas retailers, where customers get the tiniest little dress or top when they order. That’s a hot mess for sure! In my experience with SheIn, I have never ordered anything where the size was significantly smaller then what I ordered. Now, there was ONE piece I ordered, a shirt, that was way too big on me. In this case, I feel that they mis-marked the size. What I stress to everyone who is interested in ordering is to READ THE REVIEWS!!! If the item I am interested in does not have reviews, I will more than likely not order it. The reviews are so helpful to me in determining what size to wear, quality and fit.
Take for instance the leggings I am wearing in the above pics. All of the reviews noted to SIZE UP! So thats what I did. I definitely agree that the leggings run small. So again, read the reviews and make a decision before ordering. This will help you to feel more at ease about the fit. I almost always tell you in my blog post if an item is true to size or to size up/down when I am wearing SheIn. So be sure to look for that information as well!
Does It Look the Same In the Picture?
Yes it does. Simply put huh?
How is the quality??
Ok everyone, huddle around so you can hear this loud and clear. Lol. The quality to me is no different than Forever 21 and SOMETIMES H&M. I have received one or two things where I felt that the fabric should of been a little heavier in weight or the fabric felt a bit thin/see thru to me. I have washed and worn all of my pieces quite a few times. This is where I say, if you take care of your clothes, it will last. This has been the case with all of my orders. I have had no issues with the item falling a part on me or losing shape in the wash. So just wash them carefully and take care of them!!
My suggestion: check out the product details and see what the fabric is made of. That will give you an indication of what to expect such as if it would look cheap, see thru or too thin.
How long does it take to receive it?
I typically receive my order in about 2 weeks. So don’t order it today expecting to get it Friday. No ma’am!
Is it safe to use my credit card?
Ok, so here’s the deal. I have not “purchased” anything from SheIn. Since I am a blogger, they allow me to pick a few pieces to feature on the blog. But, I have close friends who have ordered and I have not heard of any issues. Plus, lots of you have already ordered from them as well. So I have not received any emails from my followers stating there was ever an issue with their credit card. But of course, always be cautious when using your credit card online by monitoring your account for any funky activity. Safe to say that I have not heard of any issues.
Have I ever returned anything because of the fit/quality?
Yes, about three things I returned. Compare that to all of the items I have from SheIn (probably about 20) and its no different then purchasing an item at the mall or heck, Nordstrom’s.
Do I get paid to promote SheIn?
