Shein clothing reviews: Personal experience
I have shopped several categories from shein. Clothes, accessories, jewelry. My favorite shein is their designer dupes or lookalikes. This was way before I discovered that I could opt for second hand designer bags instead.
Anyways, my review of the dresses is 7 out of 10. This is because the dresses is great for its price. Also, you can get cute outfits from shein. My most complimented office dress was from shein. Also, my lace body suit that I wore to Suntan beach badagry was so nice. However, it is not a petite girl friendly.
I am 5ft 5 for reference yet the torso was too long for me. However, if you’re a little bit thick or taller, the bodysuit will be perfect for you, Always check the size measurement. Many of us don’t do that.
However, for jewelry shopping I will highly recommend you read the reviews. The necklaces I got from shein didn’t fade so fast like that from Aliexpress. So, if you need affordable jewelry like earrings, necklaces, bracelets or anklets, they are a great place to shop them.
