The online store Chic Me is becoming increasingly popular, especially in social media, where it already has millions of followers. Just like Shein, it specializes in women's clothing and accessories, and if you don't know it yet you can access it by clicking here.

Now, we are going to explain you our shopping experience and opinions about this store.

What is Chic Me?

Chic Me is a Chinese website part of the IvyRose group that has been selling clothes since 2015, but recently started shipping them anywhere in the world. The shipping cost is with very cheap or even free from a certain amount of purchase.

Its motto is “Best Shopping Deals” and it specializes in sexy, casual and elegant clothing, although the best sellers are lingerie and shoes.

In addition in Chic Me there are no size problems, since it has the Chic Me Curve & Plus collection, specializing in large sizes.

We can highlight a few things about Chic Me:

  • It sells daring and cheap clothes.
  • Its catalog is almost infinite, with new clothes every day.
  • There are almost always discounts or coupons to save money.
  • It has many facilities to pay in installments.

They often compare it to Shein or AliExpress but, although it is true that they have things in common, Chic Me is specialized in elegant, sexy and daring clothes for women. In addition, considering it isn't well known internationally, they have interesting prices to attract and maintain customers.

Sizes and quality

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (excellent)

This is one of Chic Me's strong points: their sizes are similar to the ones we have in the West and there is a great variety, especially in large sizes.

You will see that on the web the sizes work in a similar way to other stores like Shein and AliExpress: the seller shows a table of measurements that you must compare with your body.

The quality of their products is also very good, especially in their star products such as shoes and lingerie: buyers are very satisfied with the good finishes of the garments.

Although, as in any other online clothing store, in Chic Me it is very important to look at the comments and reviews of other buyers that you will find in the product description.

Returns and refunds

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (approved)

We can return the products within the first 30 calendar days after receiving them. However, shipping costs are at our expense unless the garment is defective or the order is damaged. If shipping is more expensive than the garment, Chic Me will make us a proposal without having to return the products.

The refund money will be sent to us by the same payment method we used. In the case of PayPal the refund will take 24 hours and with credit card it will take between 7 and 15 working days. Remember that swimsuits, lingerie, bodysuits, swimsuits, jewelry and accessories cannot be returned. You have all the details in this link.

In short, Chic Me returns and refunds work in a very similar way to AliExpress, however, the latter offers free returns on some of its products. In addition, in case of any problem, we will not have an intermediary since we are buying directly from a store (although payment by PayPal always gives us security).

Contact and customer service

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ (remarkable)

Something we particularly liked about Chic Me is that it has several contact methods, as you can see here.

  • Live chat: from 1 am to 6 am and from 9 am to 12 pm (America EST).
  • WhatsApp message: you can send a message through this platform and it will be answered within 24 hours.
  • Phone: we can also contact via +1323237395419 during the same chat hours except Mondays, Saturdays and holidays.

The site itself warns us in this link that in some cases it is possible that there is no stock of what we have purchased. Although it rarely happens, if it does, you will be notified to replace the items for others or to receive a refund.

And if you are missing an item when you receive the package, Chic Me has most likely split the order into several packages.

Is it safe?

Yes, in our opinion Chic Me is a totally safe site. It has been selling clothes for several years, has all the security protocols and has many satisfied buyers, especially in America, but it is reliable whether you buy from the United States, Canada, Australia, the UK or anywhere else in the world.

In addition, it allows you to pay with PayPal, which virtually eliminates all risk.
