There are things about SHEIN that all sellers know, or at least the most experienced ones, and that they really don't tell you anywhere.

Therefore, after shopping a lot at SHEIN and analyzing the store closely for months, there are certain things that have really shocked me and that I would like to share with you in this list:

  • The SHEIN search engine does not return all the results when we search for a specific garment.

  • Elastic garments give more size than indicated. They can also look good on you.

  • If you are looking for garments that are not so short, Emery Rose is your brand.

  • Do not look for pants at Dazy or Moft if your hips exceed 100 centimeters in circumference.

  • An XL of one garment is not the same as an XL of another garment.

  • If you want baggy shoes, opt to buy the smaller size of SHEIN curve (size large).

  • High-waisted summer pants can mark out areas you don't want to mark if the pants don't have darts that start at the waist of the garment.

  • Very fixed fabrics will have to be ironed a lot and they won't look full. Look for cloth garments with body.

  • The more you filter the results of a category, the fewer garments you will see as a result.

  • The names of the products in your country may not match the names SHEIN puts on each product.

  • If you blink, the products you have in the basket are sold out. Don't take too long to buy.

  • There is always or almost always a double of the garment you like in the plus size section.

  • SHEIN's short dresses are very short and invite you to wear legging pants underneath so you don't accidentally show anything.

  • Sometimes SHEIN offers free shipping on days other than Sundays.

  • The section for tall women barely has a variety of clothes.

  • The SHEIN white in transparent women, no matter what you buy.

  • We almost always add a garment to the basket twice without realizing it.

  • We spend a lot of time looking for the perfect garment at SHEIN and not finding it is an excuse to go back to the web.

  • White men's clothing is not transparent. The reason why is because they are thicker and coarser fabric.

  • Men's t-shirts are generally very thick and in summer they are hot.

  • Cooler men's fabrics are more expensive.

  • There are so many people looking for the perfect garment on SHEIN that the web collapses with so many users.

  • If you buy looser tank tops because you like baggy clothes you will have to machine the side because it will be too baggy or wear a bandeau underneath.

  • Many women buy men's clothing because they have very nice designs.

  • It is rumored that women's shoes are taking off. It's good to look at the opinions a lot.

  • From a size 41 on women you will have very little variety of footwear at SHEIN.

  • There are no large sizes of men's shoes at SHEIN.

  • If you receive a SHEIN garment in an order and it looks misshapen, it is probably because you forgot to look at the photos of the product reviews or there were none.

  • We spend weeks trying to get SHEIN free trials but in the end we get tired and forget.

  • The waffle or holey fabric found in many SHEIN sweaters or tops creates lint after a few uses.

  • The triangle neckline of most SHEIN short sleeve tops makes the back wider.

  • You will never buy cheaper than SHEIN.

  • If you buy a larger size because you like loose shirts, the neck will look droopy and you should be careful. You can fix it by machine.

  • Even if you think there is something that does not exist, it will always be in SHEIN.

  • We're always looking forward to free shipping on the cheapest minimum order.

  • Although according to SHEIN their clothes cannot be sold, there are many people who publicly state this in the comments of SHEIN products.

  • Blouse fabric is hot in summer and you won't be able to wear that top.

  • If the top you buy does not have spandex, the fabric will feel somewhat stiff.

  • Look for clothes with cotton if you want to stay warm in summer.

  • We always buy cheap and that means we can never make returns.
