The Ultimate Guide To Shopping At Asian Wholesale Websites Such As SheIn, Romwe, And Zaful

The Ultimate Guide To Shopping At Asian Wholesale Websites Such As SheIn, Romwe, And Zaful

Don't let their pretty pictures fool you.

For as long as I’ve been online shopping, I’ve fallen victim to Asian wholesale websites.

$15 for a bikini? Insane.

$10 for a top? Unbelievable!

That being said, you have to be cautious of the scammers, the false advertising, and the God-awful sizing.

And let’s not forget about their poor customer service abilities — or lack thereof.

I made a lot of mistakes and learned all these things so you don’t have to! Follow my three, golden rules in order to ensure a safe and smart shopping trip.

1. Read their sizing charts

If you’ve shopped at any Asian wholesale website before, you already know their sizing is a little wonky. A medium is actually a small? A small is actually an extra small?

Most Asian wholesale websites go by Asian sizing. So, be sure to measure yourself and read their sizing charts to see best fit.

(Tip: Don’t be afraid to message their customer service if you’re still unsure of how the product might fit.)

2. Read their reviews

Don’t let their pretty pictures fool you. Those pictures may actually have been stolen off other e-commerce websites or bloggers.

Reading product reviews will help ensure the product you paid for is actually the product you paid for.

(Tip: Watch haul videos! Whenever I want to see how a particular item looks on someone approximately my size, I go to YouTube.)

3. Look for coupon codes

There's almost always coupon codes available to make your overall total even cheaper. I use Honey and RetailMeNot, but if all else fails, Google is your best friend.

(Tip: Some YouTubers have coupon codes for SheIn, Romwe, Zaful, and tons more! You can usually find them in their videos’ description boxes.)

Onto some of my favorite Asian wholesale websites to shop at…

1. Zaful

I’ve never been “scammed” by Zaful, meaning I’ve never had my money taken away from them and not received something in return. Same goes for any Asian wholesale website I’ve shopped at. Maybe I’ve just been lucky? Knock on wood.

If anything, I think I’ve had the most luck with Zaful. They’re known for their cute, affordable bikinis. Their tops are also to die for. I highly recommend giving them a try if you’re in the market for cheap bikinis this summer.

2. SheIn

I’ve also been shopping on SheIn for quite some time now. I’ve had more trouble with their sizing than most, but that’s okay.

They’re my go-to for all the hottest, latest trends at a price you can’t beat! Shipping is free when you spend $49 or more. Express shipping is free if you spend $99 or more and you’re guaranteed to get your items within 2-4 business days.

3. Romwe

To be completely honest with you… Romwe is a lot like SheIn (but we’ll talk about that another day). You’re bound to see the same items found on SheIn on Romwe. Sometimes they’re at an even lower price than SheIn, which is why I highly recommend you have two tabs open in order to ensure you get the best deal possible.

4. YesStyle

People sleep on YesStyle way too much! By far, one of the best Asian wholesale websites I’ve ever shopped at. It has a wide variety of different styles from different cultures. My go-to place for all things Korean fashion, too!

5. Wish

Okay, don’t exit out of this article just yet! Hear me out! Wish is actually a great place for little things. For example, I’ve gotten a few phone cases from them and they’re amazing. You can’t really mess up on a phone case, nor can you beat $2 for one!

6. Joom

Joom is a lot like Wish. I found them by accident and now I’m purposely telling you, lovely readers, to check them out. Once again, a great place for little things. I’ve also bought clothes and shoes on there and they turned out pretty good!

7. Fairy Season

To wrap everything up, here’s another not-so-popular Asian wholesale website you may or may not know about. My go-to place for dupes! My personal favorite is my Tommy Hilfiger bandeau. It looks just like the real thing for a fraction of the cost.

And there you have it! The ultimate guide to shopping at Asian wholesale websites. I’ll leave you with a great video from one of my favorite YouTubers who tested out $5 clothes from Romwe for a week. Maybe it’ll inspire you to shop from them, too — or scare you away.

10 Things Someone Who Grew Up In A Private School Knows

The 10 things that every private school-goer knows all too well.


1. Uniforms

Plaid. The one thing that every private school-goer knows all too well. It was made into jumpers, skirts, shorts, scouts, hair ties, basically anything you could imagine, the school plaid was made into. You had many different options on what to wear on a normal day, but you always dreaded dress uniform day because of skirts and ballet flats. But it made waking up late for school a whole lot easier.

2. New people were a big deal

New people weren't a big thing. Maybe one or two a year to a grade, but after freshman year no one new really showed up, making the new kid a big deal.

3. You've been to school with most of your class since Kindergarten

Most of your graduating class has been together since Kindergarten, maybe even preschool, if your school has it. They've become part of your family, and you can honestly say you've grown up with your best friends.

4. You've had the same teachers over and over

Having the same teacher two or three years in a row isn't a real surprise. They know what you are capable of and push you to do your best.

5. Everyone knows everybody. Especially everyone's business.

Your graduating class doesn't exceed 150. You know everyone in your grade and most likely everyone in the high school. Because of this, gossip spreads like wildfire. So everyone knows what's going on 10 minutes after it happens.

6. Your hair color was a big deal

If it's not a natural hair color, then forget about it. No dyeing your hair hot pink or blue or you could expect a phone call to your parents saying you have to get rid of it ASAP.

7. Your school isn't like "Gossip Girl"

There is no eating off campus for lunch or casually using your cell phone in class. Teachers are more strict and you can't skip class or just walk right off of campus.

8. Sports are a big deal

Your school is the best of the best at most sports. The teams normally go to the state championships. The rest of the school that doesn't play sports attends the games to cheer on the teams.

9. Boys had to be clean-shaven, and hair had to be cut

If you came to school and your hair was not cut or your beard was not shaved, you were written up and made to go in the bathroom and shave or have the head of discipline cut your hair. Basically, if you know you're getting written up for hair, it's best just to check out and go get a hair cut.

10. Free dress days were like a fashion show

Wearing a school uniform every day can really drive you mad. That free dress day once a month is what you lived for. It was basically a fashion show for everyone, except for those upperclassmen who were over everything and just wore sweat pants.

What’s The Deal With Women Wearing Makeup Anyways?

Makeup is a form of empowerment for both men and women it should not be seen as a way to hide insecurities.


Many people do not understand why makeup is worn. Many believe it has to do with insecurities, self-esteem issues, and more positive attention to their appearance. However, makeup is more used for empowerment and creativity for both men and women rather than a mask to cover themselves up.

Makeup has been around since ancient Egypt. It would be used for both men and women of all social statuses. According to Reader's Digest, they used makeup.

Makeup is a skill that is used because people enjoy it or appreciate it, obviously, it is not for everyone, but the people that use makeup, use it as a way of armor to empower themselves and the way they feel. It is no different from any other form of self-care people use for empowerment or to feel stronger.

According to Refinery29, our relationship with makeup has evolved over the years it is no longer seen as a way to impress men, but it is a celebration of oneself.

Using makeup gives people a chance to control the way they look and gives them a way to express themselves in their daily lives.

According to Bustle, "they are taking control of their own image and using makeup in a way that empowers them. And that is extremely cool."

Makeup is not limited to just women; it can be used for men as well. For instance, back in 2016, James Charles was the first male Covergirl. This allows all people to be involved in the empowerment and creativity that makeup gives us.

According to Health, beauty is for everyone, no matter what you look like or who you are that is what makes it so amazing.
