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.

20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."

6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."

8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.

11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.

13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

To My Ruined Favorite Pair of Jeans

We had a good run.


Every girl has a pair of jeans that they love more than any other. They have a perfect combination of fit, style, and comfort.

And due to that overwhelming awesomeness from that pair of jeans, we seem to wear them a bit more often than our other pairs, which usually means they wear out faster than our other pairs.

Its a special kind of sad day when you realize your go-tos are no longer wearable. Jeans can be expensive, and sometimes you have to face the fact that you will not be able to create your signature looks right away anymore.

So here is to you, and your favorite jeans.

Embrace, and cherish, the days of them always being in your drawer whenever you need them. Relish in the times that you can put them on after you had washed them and they fit a little better than the time before. Use the pockets you have stretched out to the perfect size for all of your stuff, and wear them with your favorite shoes even if you think you have worn that look one too many times.

Wear them to class, to a club, to dinner with your friends. Make the most of their versatility, allowing you to be comfortably cute whenever you need or want to be. Wear them with heels and with sneakers. Look in the mirror and smile as they perfectly fit your curves. These jeans were made for you.

Some goodbyes are harder than others, and jeans, while replaceable, have a special place in the heart of some girls. It may seem silly and ridiculous (and we know it is), but the confidence boost from your perfect pair of jeans is unmatched.

Love all the times you've had in those jeans and the events you've been able to wear them to. And when it is time for a new pair, it just means it's time to find a new go-to!
