When ShowInBuy.com reached out to me to review one of their items, I was skeptical. This brand is straight from China and I was unsure of their quality. Nevertheless, I agreed and decided on this dress. It seemed like one of the longer dresses on their site, so I was excited to try it on! After almost two months (yes, TWO months), I received my package. It was packaged nicely and securely. After opening it, I noticed a different smell. Not a bad smell, just maybe a factory smell. I held it up to me and I really like the color, but it seemed a bit short. I wasn’t going to wear it with that smell, so I washed it and then tried it on.
There were a few things I noticed right away:
- The quality is great! I would compare it to a juniors dress that you would find at Macy’s or Boston Store and for under $20, that’s pretty awesome!
- The sizing was off. I ordered a small after measuring myself and matching the sizing to the chart on the site. But even with doing this – the dress is bit tight in the chest and a bit too short for wearing to work but is super cute to wear to a late summer / early fall wedding.
- The color and pleating is adorable.
If I would have ordered one size up (Medium), I would have LOVED this dress! And to be honest, I actually forgot that I was even getting this dress until it showed up in my mailbox, but it was definitely a pleasant surprise. If you have 1-2 months to wait and make sure to size up, I would say that ShowInBuy.com is a decent place to shop, especially since their prices are so low. On the other hand, if you don’t have that kind of time, it might be better to pay a higher price elsewhere and get your item much quicker!
