We have all seen the TikTok videos of people getting this huge Shein orders and if you’re like me, you’ve been curious to know what would happen if you ordered from their site. Well, I took the dive and made a significantly large purchase from Shein. I got a little bit of everything but stayed away from swimsuits. I knew I was going to write this blog and just couldn’t bring myself to take photos in a swimsuit.
Let’s dive into this baby! Everything will be linked for you as well.
Let me start off by saying that everything was ordered in either a Large or XL. The shoes are a Euro 39 and I am a US size 8. I believe the belt is OS!
So first off, I tried on the shorts and the jeans. I ordered an XL in the shorts and the largest size they had in the jeans which was a Large. Total no go on them both. I was able to get the shorts up and buttoned but that was about it. The jeans were a total fail and I didn’t even take a photo in them because of it. I couldn’t get them past my thighs. Definitely run small if you are thicker and I like to identify myself as thick.
Next up was this cute brown printed top. I love the print and the flutter sleeves but I definitely wish it was a little longer in length. I am bigger chested so sometimes with shirts, it ends up making the shirt shorter. I would’ve preferred to wear this tucked in but still a super cute top to wear out for say date night or a night out with the girls.
This black button up is a waffle knit and is super cute. Buttons are fully functional however, again with my big chest I think it looks best opened up with a say a cute body suit underneath or something. More like a cardigan for me than an actual shirt.
This combo is probably my entire favorite outfit of the whole order. I die over this Not Your Honey tee with the sunflowers and retro font. Just screams what’s in style right now and I love it. I paired it with this double ring belt and these adorable Steve Madden dupe sandals. Definitely something I can see myself wearing often in not only summer but Fall as well. Throw a cardigan over this shirt and it’s a total pumpkin patch outfit.
Last up is this two piece lounge set and a cardigan. The cardigan surprised me when I opened the package as it’s more shiny looking than a straight black like the picture looks like online. I wasn’t expecting shine but it works for the upcoming colder season. It’s a sheer material so it’s definitely light weight and can be worn with shorts during the summer too. The two piece set is super comfy and is a ribbed material. There are no pockets though and the buttons are just an embellishment. This is probably my second favorite outfit in the order.
Overall, I would say you get what you pay for right? I don’t think anything here was over $25. Which in turn means that the quality isn’t say what you would buy at Target or American Eagle. However, if you’re on a tight budget and needing some clothes that are trendy then this is definitely the way to go. Personally, I’ll order from them again. The return process is very simple and I will be returning the jeans and shorts. More than likely, I’ll get something in their place. You have the option to do a refund to your card or store credit when selecting what items from your order that you would like to return on their website/app.
The Big question is…is it really worth all the hype?
I would say yes. You can get some designer dupes, trendy clothes, bathing suits for like $8 and even some home decor on there. I know someone who personally had a total order of $150 and with all their coupons they offer, she ended up spending like $115. That is not bad at all for 30 items! I can spend that amount at Target and get like two outfits. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Target clothing and everything is just getting better and better quality over there but, sometimes you just can’t afford to swing that amount for so little options. This way, you are able to get an abundance and spend less in the long run. So, my final thought is….try it out! You may be surprised at what you can find and end up loving from them.
I’ve tried Shein a few times and I really like some of their stuff, but not all of it. They are amazing at returns though! I never had issues getting refunded for an item I chose to send back.
Oh my gosh what CUTE finds. I love your style!!
I couldn’t agree more with this. There are great finds from SHEIN but not all their materials are worth the purchase. I’ve been buying from them for almost two years now and I’ve liked most of the items I’ve picked up.
Ok. Thanks for doing this post because I was thinking about ordering from them. But where did you get those jeans? Those jeans are so cute and they make every outfit look like a hit.
I like the white Honey shirt too. And I agree, love the jeans! I like pairing a more expensive piece with and inexpensive piece.
Thanks for this review! I’ve ordered a few times and I think it all just depends!
I haven’t tried Shein yet, but I have been really curious!

My kids love Shein. They do have a lot of great stuff and at reasonable prices. It is nice to have so many choices as well.
