BooHoo Review

BooHoo_clothing_review

Happy Monday friends!

If you have been a follower of the blog for a hot minute then you may know that I have collected quite a few pieces from BooHoo. If you're not familiar with BooHoo, it is an online retail that offers men's and women's clothing. BooHoo is known for their affordable clothing pieces and they're always running crazy sales such as 50% everything.

Also note: BooHoo typically sends you a 30% off coupon off your order if you add something to your cart and leave if you have an account with them.

I'm the first to say that I am very hesitant to order from websites that I'm not familiar with and especially those that have "too good to be true" prices. I mean, how can you not? After hearing about BooHoo multiple times on YouTube and on social media I finally decided to take the plunge and try it for myself. I have been shopping on BooHoo for about a year now and wanted to share my experience about the site with you all. So, let's get started now, shall we?

Sizing

This has to be the trickiest part about ordering from BooHoo. When I first ordered on BooHoo all the sizing options were in UK sizes, but recently I noticed they started switching over to US sizes.

For size reference, I'm a typically a Small / Medium or a size 4 in most stores. In Old Navy, J.Crew and most boutiques I'm typically a small and in Forever 21 I'm almost always a true medium. When I order from BooHoo I usually order a US size 4 or UK 8.

I typically order dresses from BooHoo and almost all of them have fit me fine. I have ordered a couple tops from them and stuck with my dress size. As for bottoms, I have only ordered a skirt from them (the one that was unlined and super revealing) and even though it didn't work out style wise, it did fit well.

Always be sure to reference the size chart of each clothing item because each item may be different. I typically mainly order looser fit clothing pieces such as shift dresses and oversized sweaters in case the clothing item is too big it won't look too strange. 


Quality

As for quality, you pretty much get what you paid for. I believe all of the items I have purchased on BooHoo were all on sale and came to under $25. I have a mix of items ranging from pretty decent quality to paper thin quality that feels like it could rip at any second. One thing to note is that price does not reflect quality. I have paid $22 for a dress and a dress I've paid $8 was 10x better quality than the $22 one.

My suggestion is to check the description of all the clothing pieces you are interested in purchasing. Reviews are also helpful as well. Also, be sure to make note if it says the clothing item is unlined or not. One time I had purchased a wrap style skirt and didn't realized it was unlined and am not able to wear it unless I want a lot more of my "goods" to show than I want.. 

Another thing to keep in mind regarding quality is that most if not all of their spaghetti strap items (such as the one pictured above) are not adjustable. The ones I have received have super long straps that would make the item unwearable without an adjustment. If you do decide to purchase a piece that has spaghetti straps, a track I have been doing has been tying the straps into a bow and sewing it in place. 


Shipping / Returns

Shipping - I have heard those in other countries receive their order from BooHoo within a hand full of days. From my experience, I typically receive my order in a week and a half to two weeks. Something to keep in mind in case you order a piece for a particular event.

Returns - When you purchase from Boohoo, keep in mind is that BooHoo does not offer free returns so that's something to keep mind before you order multiple items in hopes to send back the pieces you don't want.


Final thoughts
From this outfit post

BooHoo is a great place if you want to purchase super affordable and trendy pieces. Like most online places, it can be a hit or miss place to purchase from. 

If you'd like to check out some other outfit posts I've done styling BooHoo pieces you can do so here:
Denim Shirt Dress - did not like the quality of this piece and it was one of the pricier pieces
Thanksgiving Outfit - Easy t-shirt dress
Game day dress - love this dress, but material is not ideal for hot summer days
The perfect swing dress - this has to be one of my favorite purchases!

I hope you all found this review helpful! I tried to go as in depth as I could to give you a full review. Let me know if you all have any questions or would like me to do a similar review on another retailer for you all! I have also linked a few of my favorite finds from BooHoo down below for you all in case you want to check the website out. I hope you all have a wonderful day and as always, thank you for reading!

P.S. If you haven't yet, I'd LOVE it if you would please take a second and take my reader survey! It would mean so much to me and help me create content YOU want to see! Thank you so much to those who already took it!
