My experience with SHEIN

I love fashion and due to that I spend a lot of time on browsing websites to see all the new fashion. For about 3 years ago while I was browsing the sites, I find the Shein website. After browsing the site I was so impressed with these nice clothes. I found a lot of things that I have to mention there. 

What attracted me most to the Shein is the prices of products, and the large number of discounts that exist everywhere in the site.  In the beginning of my experience on the site I bought two blouses and pants. This was to try the site in the beginning and see if shein is good or not. In case, these products are not good so I will not lose my money unnecessarily. 

Here is my first order

The surprise is that I received these products in just 11 days. What struck me most was the unbelievable quality of the product. Actually, the product quality was not the best but compared to the price of the product is more than excellent quality. This special experience made me buy more and more from Shein. 

Pros and Cons of Shein?

Pros:

  1. Shein takes higher-end items and makes a lower quality version of them for a much lower price. I will give you an example, I bought this belt

    from: SHEIN
