What I bought from Shein

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?

  1. I’ve always wanted to shop on shein because it is so affordable! I really like the look of the linen playsuit, it’s looks so comfortable and I love the colour x

  2. Really cute stuff! I’ve ordered here before and delivery also took quite long back then, so I think that’s just part of the deal. Love how cheap everything is, but I feel like it’s really hit or miss with Shein, but looks like you did great! 😀

  3. The dungaree style playsuit is so pretty. I ordered from Shein a few months ago, but was pretty disappointed in the quality of some of the items, and the sizing was completly off. I’m glad you were able to get a couple of nice things x

  4. I am really wanting to try Shein as I always see things that look so lovely but I’ve heard so many bad reviews about them. However, lately I am beginning to see some more positive reviews, although they still all say the delivery takes a couple of weeks. I think I’m going to give them a try. 🙂

  5. I love the playsuit.

    I have not ordered from them before as like you, I’ve heard such mixed things, but the clothes always look really nice. I think I am going to check it out now x

  6. Like this edit. Nice review. I bought something from Shein once and the quality was awful. However it was one item and up to give it another try. However what is the quality like of the items you have?

  7. The playsuit looks lovely. I’ve wanted to try Shein for a while but I can never decide on what size to order.

  8. I haven’t ever tried Shein before but wow! I love those outfits. I don’t know if I could pull off a body suit but I love the scalloped neck line so much!

  9. These look fab! I have ordered from Shein twice before and was actually pleasantly surprised with the quality of the items I got!!

  12. I have never heard of Shein before, but I love that knitted top! I need something cool and stretchy to wear in the heat as well, so the linen shorts are nice. I am always up for buying something that will last a good while. 🙂

  13. I actually loved the blue romper so much! It’s a really pretty review! I’ve always wanted to buy from Shein but haven’t yet, so this post was great to read!

  14. I loved your statement about fast fashion, I really respect that! I also love that playsuit! It’s super cute and you look amazing in it. I think the colour is perfect for summer. The cropped top is really sweet as well. I need some new summer clothes, and I haven’t thought about Shein before! Thank you for sharing your haul 🙂

  15. Shein advertisements I see almost every day on my Facebook feed… but you know, it’s very hard to trust to ”newbies”. Their clothes look good and are cheap but I haven’t tried to buy anything yet!
    Nevertheless, I love your first outfit!♥

  16. Love the bodysuit, the scalloped edges are super cute. I ordered from shein when I was slim many moons ago and loved the items. Some were a bit small though. I haven’t ordered since being plus size x

  17. I love that body suit! The scalloped edges are so cute.

    I did a Shein haul on my blog too and was pleasantly surprised with how everything turned out!

  18. These bits look lovely! ☺️
    I haven’t shopped with SHEIN in years but I love their products!

    I know what you mean about fast fashion. I try not to purchase fast fashion products either unless I need them.

    Love Lozza x
