Today’s post is all about shopping on SheIn! You may have seen ads for the company on your Facebook feed and may have thought to yourself “this is too good to be true!” I was one of those people! However, the more I kept seeing the ads as well as bloggers wearing clothes from there, the more intrigued I was to try it out for myself! I started reading blogs, watching YouTube hauls, and checking out SheIn’s Instagram to familiarize myself with the company and to make the best shopping choices when ordering from them!
SheIn sells really affordable and trendy clothes, accessories, jewelry, purses, swimsuits, jackets, and shoes! I wouldn’t have my whole wardrobe full of clothes from just SheIn but since trends come and go it’s a great place to buy items that you may wear several times without breaking the bank! Shopping at SheIn can be a hit or miss but if you follow these tips you should be able to find some really good items just like I did in this haul!

Check out SheIn’s Instagram
Looking at the pictures that SheIn has posted as well as their tagged pictures is the perfect starting point when thinking about shopping there especially if you’re not sure what you want to buy yet!
Watch YouTube Hauls
Pictures of clothes are great but videos are even better because you’re able to see how the items move so you can get a better idea of the material it’s made of as well as its quality!
Since items can be a hit or miss on SheIn, this is the most important tip I have for getting a good item! Read through all the reviews to find out how items fit, how they look, and its quality! Even if you’re looking at a certain color or style variation of an item that may not have reviews, check the other colors and styles because usually the clothes are made the same! I try to stay away from buying anything that doesn’t have any reviews but it’s up to you if you want to take a chance on an item that you really like!
Look At Style Galleries
When you click on an item, there is a Style Gallery on the site where people who have bought that item can post their pictures and it’s a great way to see how the item looks, how it fits, and the length!
Look At Measurements & Size Guide
All the items on SheIn have different sizes meaning that if you fit in a small in one item you may not fit in a small in another! To ensure that you get the best size in each item, look at the size guide and take your measurements!
Since the clothes come from China, shipping can take anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks so if you’re looking to buy something for an event or special occasion keep that in mind and even then if the item isn’t what you thought it would be then that’s a whole other mess! If you’re really wanting a SheIn item for an event, then order way in advance! (I would say at least 35 days to be on the safe side.)
SheIn accepts returns within 30 days however there are some items that can’t be returned or exchanged (like jewelry, swimsuits, and a few more) so be aware of that before buying an item! I’ve never had to return anything so I can’t share any personal experiences of this!
I ALWAYS wash clothes after buying them regardless of where they’re from! I was worried about washing the items I got from SheIn and looked online to see if I could find any tips on washing their clothes but I didn’t find anything. I ended up putting all three dresses in the washer and dryer and hoped for the best! They were perfectly fine but the only thing is the pink and grey striped dress in the picture above got a little “scrunched” so for items that are very thin it may be best to handwash and air dry them!
Steam The Clothes
The clothes come folded in a sealed plastic bag so once you take them out they’re very wrinkly! Ironing works but depending on the fabric of the item (especially when it’s thinner) it can take a really long time so I would suggest steaming the clothes for the best result!
SheIn has this great program where you can earn bonus points through making purchases, writing reviews, and posting pictures that can be used to save money on your next order! 100 points equal $1 so definitely take advantage of that!
