Why You Should Order from SHEIN
Updated: Jan 21
Ok, so as promised I wanted to update you all on my order from SHEIN. I was a bit skeptical at first, but Sis! Guuuurll! When I tell you, I am a Believer!
First, of all my order was received within a timely manner. It arrived within the originally quoted 3-5 days. I received tracking notifications throughout the entire fulfillment process. Kudos to SHEIN!
Next, the dress looked the same as it did on the website. I was super afraid it would be a "Wish" dress, you know "I wish it was the dress I ordered" type situation, I've encountered in the past. The items did not disappoint. The dress featured in this post is the Plus Surplice Wrap Belted Pleated Glitter Dress 3XL . Click the link to see the original post model pic. But, to see me, just proceed to the Fabulousness below.
The dress was very comfortable. I'm 5'3, and I'm wearing the 3x. Keep in mind, this dress is available in different colors. Also, I'm glad to say the dress was not itchy, or heavy. Sometimes with embellished fabrics, in my experience I found them to be irritating or very heavy, but this dress was not irritating at all.
In addition, to being comfortable, the dress is SUPER Pretty. I felt glamorous wearing it. The empire waist was flattering and the pleating on the bottom skirt added a nice vintage appeal to the piece. The puff sleeves added to the Grecian feel of the dress, further enhancing overall aesthetic of the piece. Needless to say, I received many compliments, and many inquiries on where to buy it.
Perhaps, my favorite thing about this dress is the Empire Waist, and of course THE GLITTER! Glitter and Empire waists make me Happy. 😊 But, seriously, empire waists accentuate the smallest part of your body, no matter what your size or shape is. They direct the eye, the focal point upward and away from your midsection. If that is your goal of course. For me, I try to create and accentuate the cleanest line I can find in what I wear. It's all About the Lines Sis!
Overall, SHEIN is a winner in my book! They have a great plus size selection! They offer traditional standard sizing as well, and my favorite part about SHEIN are the prices Boo!
I'll be ordering more from them in the future, since they have made me a true believer. You should try them for yourself. Remember to tell me your own SHEIN story when you do. Until next time, Be Bold. Be Beautiful. Be You!
