This post was done in collaboration with Shein. Have you ever ordered from them before? They reached out to me a couple of weeks ago and to be completely honest I was hesitant at first because I have heard both good and bad things about the website. Like anything else in life, I had to try it out and see for myself. To my surprise I received my item quickly and the quality was good!
Not only did I want to share this oh so pretty dress with you but I wanted to talk about why reviews are important. Have you ever purchased a swimsuit or bra online? I use these examples because these are probably the most difficult items to purchase without trying on. If you are anything like me and love shopping online then purchasing swimsuits and bras online is inevitable. If I am not familiar with a brand what really helps me is reading the product reviews. Aside from the product descriptions and measurement guide I really trust the product reviews. I really appreciate the shoppers who take the time to give their real life feedback like, “I’m usually a true medium but it was pretty small around the chest area. I think I’ll keep it though because a large will definitely be too big”. Reviews like that are very helpful and really help me make a decision when buying online.
Now back to Shein and please give me your feedback on your personal experience because I have heard a lot of different reviews from friends!
I chose this dress and another. I loved them both equally but as I was reading through the customer reviews of the other dress I noticed a lot of negative comments like “fit is horrible and dress did not look the photo”.
This dress on the other hand was exactly as pictured and since it is a white dress I expected I would have to wear a slip underneath. The material is actually pretty thick that you won’t have to wear a slip and thank goodness for that with this Texas heat! However, the top area runs a little big so if you are in between sizes I would definitely size down for this particular style. That was also noted in the reviews by multiple customers so that definitely helped me decide on size.
Also, I’m not sure if you saw my 72 second snapchat rant during the weekend, but I talked about my blog reviews. I always write 100% honest reviews on The Style_Lynn Kind. I wouldn’t post anything on my blog that I wouldn’t use or wear myself. I don’t want any readers to come across my blog or any of my blogger friends’ blogs (say that 5x fast!) and think we say things because we are getting paid.
In the past I have agreed to work with companies on reviews, but once I received the product it was not the quality I had expected so I kindly reached back out and said I couldn’t write the review on my blog. This space is not to bad mouth product or to put negative energy out there. This space is here because I spend time searching and trying brands, products and affordable finds that I love so I can share them with you. If I don’t like a product or brand I just chose not to work or write about them. I’m not wasting my time writing a whole negative post. Ain’t nobody got time for that! 🙂
If you asked me personally or sent me an email asking about a product that I didn’t have a good experience with then I would be honest with you because that’s helpful, but I’m not here to put anyone or anything on blast.
Okay sorry, sorry. My 72 second rant turned into multiple paragraphs, haha! I just needed to put that out there.
So basically, my overall review for my Shein experience was good! Quality was good, fit was great, and shipping was quick! The shipping may have been really quick because they knew I was doing a review (just being honest). Remember this product is coming from overseas which it states online as well so be prepared for it to take a little longer than what you are used to from your favorite department store.
If you are debating on ordering something from them:
1) Let it be this dress 🙂
2) READ the reviews before making that final decision to add it to your cart!
I would love to hear your feedback on this topic or on your Shein experience!
Thank you so much for reading guys!
