Any prices mentioned were correct at the time of writing. Whilst I don’t agree with fast fashion, I only picked the items that I felt I needed and I know I will get a lot of wear out of them.
I first heard about Shein last year but heard really mixed reviews on them. A couple of friends have recently purchased from them and have been happy with what they had received so I thought I would give them a try myself. As well as the items I’m about to show you, I also picked up several sets of drawer dividers and some nipple covers. Without further ado, here is the items I bought.
The first item is this black body suit which was £4.99. What drew me to it was the scallopped edges which go around the neckline, on the shoulders and on the back. The quality of it is so good for the price I paid, the only downside is I wish I could have got a bigger size so that it had more room in it, but sadly the next size up was sold out. The leggings and shoes are from elsewhere which I mentioned in this previous post.
The second item I picked up is this black knitted ribbed cropped top, which I bought to go with these pyjama shorts from Primark. Although its knitted, its still thin enough for me to be comfortable at night wearing it when its hot. Its also made from a stretchy material so I’ll be able to move around in it and at £2.99, it was a real bargain.
The final item of clothing I picked up is these linen style blue dungaree shorts. I wanted something that was loose fitting for when we get some hot weather and I loved the colour of these. One thing to note is that they crease quite easily so I’ll probably need to steam them every so often. These were £11.99, which whilst I’ve seen cheaper ones, these are a decent quality and I think they will last quite a while.
Overall, whilst the ordering system itself was simple to use, it did take quite a while to scroll through the items on the website because there is so much on there. In terms of delivery, it did take longer than other companies, but I’m not sure if that’s something to do with the current situation.
What did you think of the items I chose? Have you ordered from Shein before?
