Here's a lengthy review:
Many people have most likely heard of Shein before as it is a brand that sells cute clothing at a low price. However, the downside to this low price is that some of the items are not good quality. The other thing is, this brand is known for being bad at their shipping their products out and customer service which kinda leads to people believing they're a scam. Obviously this brand is not completely a scam because customers have shown their hauls on both youtube and tiktok and other places.
Speaking of tiktok, sometime last year there was a scandal going on about how shein was selling customer information (such as addresses) to others on tiktok but I believe it eventually turned out to be people hacking into the system.
From my personal experience, I bought 9 items (these black boots, tops, and some accessories). I got my boots in about a week after placing the order which is fair. However, the other 8 items that I ordered said it was still shipping after a whole month of placing my order and not just that, I waited until it hit about two months until I requested a refund which I did get later.
Not just from the scandal but also my own experience with purchasing, I will not be buying from Shein again and I have already deleted my account just for further precaution and also because I know I won't need or want anything from their website as well.
Final rating: will be giving two stars only because of my boots order (good quality for the price and shipped fairly quick)
