Hey there! Today I’m talking about one of my favorite places to shop online…Shein! My boyfriend has told me that I should be called The Shein Shopper by now, but we’ll see about that!
If you’ve been curious about ordering from Shein lately, then wait no more and read my top three tips about how to shop on Shein.
Tip One: Read Reviews
I believe Shein has come a long way over the past years…it’s been eleven years since the company started their treasure trove of online clothes.
A few of the most helpful things about Shein are the comments and pictures from users. It is sooo important to find reviews with pictures because you can get an idea about what the product looks like on someone with a similar body type.
Tip Two: Product Type
Here’s a tricky tip, but one I think you can understand. I believe one of the reasons why Shein can sell products so low (other than being in China) is because some of the products require YOU to do a little work to make it look the way it did online.
I’m going to give you some pretty specific examples here. This romper looked super cute on the site, with that big bow in the middle really drawing me in to purchase it.
Well, that big bow is actually something you have to tie yourself! …which I was horrible at doing so this is how I wore the romper.
Here’s another example side by side.
In this case, the dress had a microscopic slit on the side where the string goes to tie the bow. I eventually found the slit, but I was ready to cut my own right before I found it! If you’re interested, buy the dress here!
Tip Three: Get Points!
One of the biggest reasons I love shopping with Shein is the discounts associated with points. Every 100 point is a dollar! So if you plan on shopping with Shein after your first order, here are some simple ways to save on your next purchase.
You’ll want to make sure you hit the “delivered” button when you get the package because this instantly gives you points for the amount of the order. So if your order was $100, then you get 100 points!
The next thing you can do is write a review! You don’t have to upload a professional picture, but you do get 20 points for having one. The written part of the review is 10 points and you’re free to write as little as you’d like!
The site used to let you review an item individually, but now it looks like you must review each item in your order. If you plan on doing an order review, make sure you have some time and snap a picture of each product whether you’re wearing it or have it flat laid!
I hope you enjoyed these tips about shopping with Shein! To see a review of a full order you can watch my YouTube video here. If you have any more questions or tips you’ve found about the site, feel free to shoot them my way!
As always, happy shopping!
