Ok, not sure what to think? I see reviews of people who have gotten their orders and like/love them. I also see "Its a SCAM!" so which is it?

I believe the positive reviews are paid pretend customers. On Facebook I commented on one of their advertisements explaining why I thought people shouldn't buy from them and there were 4 women who posted general statements about why they loved fashion Mia. The same people posted the same comments another time I saw an advertisement for fashion Mia again. I thought it was strange so I clicked on their profiles and it showed at least 2 of those people were listed as marketing professionals with specialities in social media marketing. Way too much of a coincidence to not be intentional. They're a $#*! company and I strongly recommend not ordering anything from them.

A: Do not be fooled by good reviews. These clothes are absolute junk and no matter what your size you will be wasting your money if you choose to spend it on FashionMia's inferior, cheaply made clothes that look nothing, in real life, like the picture on the website. Oh and btw, my order too 3 months to get to me and when it did, two of the items fell apart at the seams as I took them gently from the bag they were shipped in. My best advise, forget their name and PLEASE DO NOT ORDER FROM FASHIONMIA

Don't order anything from this company . Read the comments . I ordered from this company . I ordered everything xlg , got sme of my order 3 or 4 months later all came in xsm . When trying to return it I realized it came directly from China . I am still waiting for the other 1/2 of my order , it's been 6 months . Also the clothes were made poorly . One side longer than the other , crooked stiches, thread coming apart , and that is all noticed before I gave it all to my 11 year old grandaughter.

It depends on your size and if you like quality. These are cheap clothes because they are cheaply made. I have found better quality items at W-mart. I bought SEVERAL tops and dresses and only 1 shirt semi-fit and isn't completely "cheap" meaning I have worn it and washed it once and its still together. (The one item i bought with spandex) I believe I bought 9-10 items and only the one is worth anything. I am typically a M-L top and a 10-12 bottom so when using the sizing chart I over estimated and got the absolute largest size. ALL TOO SMALL. I wouldn't say its a scam per-se but they do not advertise honestly/well and to send the clothes back is out of your pocket and would cost more than you paid for the items due to international shipping costs. You literally get what you pay for in this scenario - cheap=cheap. One of my dresses literally had a hole in it where the seam came apart when I opened the plastic packaging. Thats my two cents. Order at your own risk.

I am going through a nightmare in trying to return coats that were super small. They want to give me partial refund or return the items back to China on my expense. PayPal and my credit card company are involved, but I am not sure of the outcome yet. I do believe Fashion Mia is a scam. The clothes do not look like the pictures, the fabrics are cheap, and poorly tailored. I will not recommend their clothes. If you want to buy their clothes, just keep in mind that the price of cheap clothes is not worth it.

99% of the positive responses mention great customer service so now I understand where the positive feedback comes from. Customer Service offers refunds and vouchers if you give them a positive review. Quite a few of the positive reviews have actually mention that this is happening. Another shady practice from a shady company. My experience with them was horrible. Their products are very poor quality and are attempts at copying better quality sites such as MOD CLOTH. Beware. They have a high quality web page front end and a cheap, rubbish back end product.

I can not speak for everyone, but my experience was a negative one. I ordered two dresses and it took almost a month to receive them.

I was planning to wear one of them by a certain time, but because it never came, I had to buy a new one!


They had no problem taking my money though, that charge came out quickly, but the clothes didn't get to me quickly.

So, it's up to you whatever you choose to do. Hope that helps a little bit, I was just saying what my experience was. Good Luck!

Researching the fake testimonials you will discover that many if not all of them start with " I " I this and I that, when someone really describes their experience with product or service they mention product first not themselves , in my opinion these positive testimonials are fake to make customers make purchases , beware of advertising it's never same as product .

I am not paid, nor am I a fake customer. I wanted several dresses, but was unsure of the company, so I only ordered one. It took a few weeks, but have ordered from other over seas companies and they take a while. I was a little surprised at the sheerness of the jacket, but when I went back and looked at the picture- it was exact. I love the dress and will order more. I suggest leaving plenty of time and only ordering 1 until you figure out sizing and if you like the quality. It looks like refunds are problematic

The quality is extremely low and those that indicate they are happy with the clothes are either lying or don't have the slightest idea what good quality is. Ordered several items and not one of them was something that I would wear. When I contacted Customer Service they offered me 30% back in store credit!!! Why would I want MORE of the low quality clothes??

Here's the problem. There's 2 companies by the same name. One here in the United States (Colorado I think) and then there's the China based website that everyone hates. I ordered a coat for my wife one size bigger about 3 weeks before Christmas. It finally came at the end of January. When it came, it was too small. (apparently, we in the US are "larger than normal Chinese?) The company will exchange but YOU have to pay to ship it back. Which typically costs about the same as your purchase. There customer service is none existent and if you do get someone, it's probably from the poor store that has nothing to do with the online website. Hope this helps. Just stay away from them and go to Walmart or something. Just not worth the trouble.

Listen Connie my dear I ordered 8 dresses because they really looked wonderful on line, they took long and when they arrived a month in between not only did the currier throw the parcels on my door step and two on the pavement near my steps. The dresses themselves were badly sawn and the material was ugly and untidily done. We are do know that Chinese people are small but you order different sizes, their XL could not fit meat all, in this modern day and age there is what you call Global standard measurements that any factory making clothes not just for the Chinese audience but the world at large can use. I was very upset. After I gave Fashionmai my review they had the cheek to tell me that I shouldn't have given the review I should have consulted them first so what's the point of a review, if you are a legit company you want to know how your company's performance without fear or favour as part of your marketing strategy. Fashionmai is rubbish and should not be allowed to function by international watch dogs. Those people that says they got beautiful products are not telling the truth and are not helping this company to grow. This is people's money Fashiomai is playing with so please stop them practising and producing bad products if these products were food we would all be dead.

OK Connie, I see that I am late at responding, but I hope that you are listening to the overwhelming responses you have here from your fellow ladies. I agree with each and every one of them. Please take note that in each and every comment you hear the words "SCAM', 'MONTH TO EVEN LATER ARRIVAL OF YOUR ITEMS", "VERY POOR QUALITY", ETC, ETC. All of wish is very much on point. If these words have not scared you, then you'd be a fool to not adhere to our cries by sending them your money anyway. I think what we should do is get with one of our local TV news shows (maybe 7 On Your Side) and rat Fashion Mia out, so that it could be broadcasted nationally, because by what I see here is that we have a lot of American dollars that have gone to China and we are making this company very rich. It would be nice if one of you stay-at-home moms could get with the TV station to get this ball rolling. I would not be able to dedicate the time because I am single and very busy, but would be a very much willing participant to help take them down.LET ME KNOW!!!! I'M IN!!

My experience with them is that after two months I still have not received everything I ordered and paid for. The two items I did receive were no where near as nice as their photos. Looking at the pictures it looks like really nice stuff you would really like but, it would be hard for me to believe someone not being disappointed. For the person who said she paid and after a month received nothing, you probably just haven't waited enough months.

This is a total scam. They probably spend more money paying people to type positive reviews than they do actually manufacturing products. The business model seems to be to post amazing pictures of fashionable items, then when american customers excitedly order them, fashionmia takes the money immediately.
after a few weeks, they may or may not send a shoddy piece of clothing nothing like the pictures, which fits no human body. The customer complains, they tell them they must return it to China. (Of course, the shipping costs are astronomical.)
The customer complains to Paypal/ credit card company, Paypal/ credit card company tells them they won't get involved until its returned.
After a suitable time, fashionmia emails them and offers a partial refund if the complaint is removed. I haven't yet received any money, even for the items which were not shipped, so I don't know whether anything is ever refunded.
Great set up for them. No accountability, low costs, no one can touch them because they're in China. The way these ratings work, all you have to do to counteract they negative ratings from pissed off customers is put up fake positive reviews. That's why the reviews seem to be opposite. The real ones are the negatives, the positive ones are fakes.

I think positive reviews are mostly written by Fashion Mia people themselves. I paced three orders more then a month ago. I received none. My orders, that I placed on Wish, were already delivered long time ago ( also from China). I contacted support and they promised to help, yet, one of my orders from Fashion Mia was not even processed ( in over a month!). The other two appear as shipped, but tracking records were not updated in over 2 weeks and nothing was delivered. So I am not sure what they are doing there, at Fashion Mia, but it apparently does not work for me.

Please do not believe any of the +ve reviews. I am from the UK and got caught up in how nice the pictures on the website looked so ordered 6 items not realising this Co was in China. Unfortunately researched the reviews on the Co after placing order and regretted it instantly. Was resigned to the fact I had lost around £100 but thankfully took advice from another poster who said to contact paypal for a refund which i did immediately. Paypal must be familiar with this Co as they issued me with a full refund within 24 hours before my dispute was even resolved with the Co direct. Thankfully i have recovered what I thought I had lost. Please do not be fooled. Interestingly despite my order having been cancelled i have actually received an item 4 weeks late and it is disgusting. Cheap nasty fabric which has gone straight into a charity bag. There's no way i'm paying postage to send it back. I dont even want this top in my house. It is gross.
Please do not be tempted to purchase. The positive reviews are either lies or people with very very low standards. :-)

I am not a person paid to review this site.

With that said, I ordered 3 dresses from FashionMia. It took forever to receive anything, like 6-8 weeks. The ETA provided by the company was serioisly exceeded. I received 2 of the 3 items, then waited another 1-2 weeks for the 3rd item. There was no communication from the company whatsoever, until I posted a comment here on sitejabber.

The dresses were fine when they arrived though they are cheap quality. To be honest, I did not expect them to be high quality given the price I paid.

The site is not a scam, but customer service and quality are poor. Proceed with caution.

The reason many of us say scam is that you will receive no communication from them. Then after say, a couple months or less time goes by and you contact them because your order hasn't arrived they prob won't reply. Or they will lie about it, or say they don't have any stock. Why not tell you that in the first place! It wasn't until I filed a complaint with PayPal that I got my money back. If I'd paid by any other means I doubt I would have got a refund. So in that respect its a scam!

Connie, They are not just not fit for the shopping business. I ordered 5 dresses, 3 of them are with wrong fitting. I even looked at the size chart before ordering. One was too big and 2 were very small. Another one is having broken zip. I can atleast digest these. But when i received the 5th item which was my dream dress that is when i started calling them as cheating company. The picture from the site is no where related to what i got. the whole dress is expensive because of the lace work but whereever it has to have a lace they have printed cloth and the breast cups were fitting horribly. The cloth shown in the picture was stiff and shiny where as what i received was just a synthetic cloth. I can show you the evidence with the pictures i took if you want me to inbox you. This is kind of breaking customers trust with the shopping company. I literally got this 5th items 2.5 months after the purchase as they told that it is a custom made and it will take time. Never imagined to receive such a ugly dress after a long wait.

Hi Connie,

The dresses I ordered were truly beautiful & seemed well made.
The sizing was the issue! Their small, medium and large sizes are truthfully in children's size!

I do not try to pretend to be a smaller size than I am. I weigh 125lbs, I am 5'4" and I work out at a gym......running. I usually wear a medium. That is what I ordered. I could not get my forearm into this dress!

My best friend's daughter who just turned 12 can wear it! Fit her perfect!

If you have to ask, then the answer is no. I too have a disaster story just like the rest. The cheap prices are to lure you into giving them money for products they never intend to send you. We all should file complaints with the FTC (not the FBI) and have their import license revoked.

If you really want to find out order 1 thing only and let us know what you think. I have pictures of the type of work they do on the clothing. On top of the 6 bad items that I received the girl wants to refund me only 29 dollars. I have zippers that broke off the sweaters that I ordered. You get what you pay for. Even the worse sweater that you purchase in the USA is better than over seas. I realized that it is cheaper because they don't have regulations and they don't make the inspections that we have in the USA. Don't waste your money. I am not gaining anything on writing this. Good luck and keep everyone posted. I encourage you to post something on it.

I've only ordered the one time, which was a month ago, but the dress I ordered was completely unwearable. Not only did it not match the measurements described, but it had very strange proportions, so I doubt anyone could wear it, really. The fabric was extremely cheap looking, too. It's a shame, because the pictures at the site are really pretty, but my dress was nothing like the pretty picture.

Hi Connie, In my experience, the coat was not even close to USA size that they list on their site. I will say that even if it was correct, the quality was very poor. It would not be warm enough for a warn winter in Texas. If you decide to move forward with a purchase just know that you are taking a risk and you are willing to take a loss. The refund policy is you pay for return shipping back to CHINA which for me would have been $108. So basically, I took the loss and will find someone that could use the coat or donate it.

It's not necessarily a scam per say. It's a very cheap shop set up in China. They are making every type of clothing, shoes, accessories, etc whatever you find on other sites they are offering a very similar but cheaply made version of that product. The sizes run really small because they are usually Chinese measurements NOT regular USA sizes.the shipping takes forever especially if you purchase when they are having their holidays like "Chinese New Year(it's lasts for weeks).. You really have to pick and choose certain things when ordering. Like a hit and miss. Read all reviews for each product for they will answer alot of your questions/concerns you may have about the way it fits, the fabric, and so forth. Look at return policies and procedures with ALL companies because with Fashion Mia you have to mail your items back to China which is very costly and at the end of the day..not worth it at all. I ordered 5 pieces.. was so mad I sent 4 back. The only piece I kept was a tee shirt only because I could work with that. I just won't dry it. The coat was poorly made, the dress was horrible and a different material than shown, the Cape was super thin and although the arms were long they were verrry slenderly made(my 21 yr old couldn't even fit), the sweatshirt was made out of this award type foammy material. They offered me $25 to keep the items. I couldn't do anything with them so I paid all that money to return them (lesson learned) and the return process is a headache..keep tags, keep bags, take pictures before you open, after you open, and before you mail it. These foreign companies are definitely cheap but you get what you pay for so just be mindful of all the pros and cons of these companies..Good Luck
