Hi

Ive posted in AIBU just wondering if anyone here can help? some people say sizing is off etc

has anyone used the above website and if so would you recommend? - im presently a size 14-16 and would like to purchase some clothing from there - if you have used this site before can you let me know the best sizing etc to go for tia.

I always order from here and haven't been let down yet. I'm wearing an oversized chunky knit from there today which covers my bum well. Orders come tracked with text updates.
Sizing wise if it says one size, on me (5ft 3 size 10) they tend to be baggy. Otherwise I go for a small and that seems a good size 10 fit. Hope that helps smile

thanks Porkless - what size do you think I should go for in a coat, im 14-16 (desperately trying to lose weight at the minute)

do you have to pay any import fees on orders ? my dds often show me things they like after seeing sponsered videos on youtube but we have been put off ordering because of that ?

I would be very wary. Look at site jabber. They have more 1 star reviews than 5 star. Many of their 5 star reviews look planted. The Observer did an article on them. I can’t link but if you google it you will find it.

Please don't order anything from Shein.

The 'large' sizes (for me) fit my 10 year old, the quality of the material/ finishes are dire and one long cardigan was bizarrely stitched together inside out. The shoddy material also shrinks a lot on a normal wash.

I second the sizing issue. If you're a neat size 10 the clothes look great but being a 14-16 myself they were tiny. Quality seemed good & they were as described but too small for my bust. One day I'll fit into the gorgeous skirt & dress I bought.... sending it back was going to be a faff so I kept it.

Glad I read this thread my teenage dd has been begging for clothes from romwe

I would go for a large. I'm surprised at people having problems with them as for me the item is just like the photo on the site shows.
