I've bought a few things on there and the sizing came up small. The quality of the clothes is not great and the returns is a real hassle as you have to ring them to organise it, then the money gets refunded to your shein account which you then have to login and transfer. I kept one top out of around 10.
Thanks folks. I will have a think about whether I should use Shein. I knew Mumsnet wouldn't let me down!
MaidOfStars, perhaps I should have mentioned she is 13 and a lot of the "grown up" clothes on the high street aren't suitable for a girl that age for the very reason that they are too "grown up" We spent six full weekends on the high street trying to find an outfit for a wedding in June, the dresses in her size where either babyish and for much younger girls or left her half naked with dropped or cold shoulders, bare midriff or completely backless!
Maybe I should ask for recommendations for shops that stock things she might be keen to wear but won't give me and her Dad a heart attack!
I don't know about Shein, but I understand the difficulty of finding clothes for a size 6/8 teen who has not yet developed an adult figure. Particularly when things that fit on the shoulders are too big in the bust, or things that fit on the hips are too small in the waist. When I was dd's age you could still get 'Miss' sizing, which was aimed at precisely this issue.
Dd finds that tops in the largest size of Lands End girls' range fit well, and stretchy bottoms in the smallest size of their women's range also fit her, but not the structured trousers. Your dd is shorter than mine, so the girls' range might still fit. Although some of it is of course very young, they also have stuff that my teen likes.
I’ve had a couple of bits and from Shein this year, mostly tshirts and summer tops plus two sweatshirts. The sweatshirts are ok quality for what you pay. The size guides are in cm so I just convert to inches and the sizes have been spot on (I’m a 10)
