Is Chicwish legit? I’m answering that question and more in this updated Chicwish review! I’ve been a customer for over 8 years and while I’ve written Chicwish reviews in the past (read them here), I thought I’d share an update along with answers to your most asked questions. Read on for more!
Chicwish Review 2023: Is Chicwish Fast Fashion?
My background with Chicwish
I’ve been a happy customer for over 8 years now! I found Chicwish around the time I started my blog. A photographer friend asked if I would shoot with her and she offered one of her gorgeous lace dresses for me to wear. It was from Chicwish! I LOVED it and immediately bought it after the photoshoot. It’s still in my closet to this day! From that point forward, I slowly started adding more and more Chicwish clothing to my wardrobe and now I work with them consistently to share my latest and greatest feminine clothing finds at an affordable price. I’ve convinced even the most skeptical of people to give them a try and I’ve only been met with positive feedback!
Before I drive into this Chicwish review, I want to share that this is an HONEST and unbiased review. Although I work with the brand, this is not sponsored in any way (in fact, they don’t even know that I’m writing this). They never ever pay me to say positive things or have certain expectations – I am always honest when sharing any brand and I always include this honesty in my try on hauls. Since I have 8 years of experience with them, I figured that it was a good time to share an updated review. I am not someone who has just found the brand… I am someone who has experienced everything there is to experience with the brand. Personally, I probably have at least 100 pieces in my wardrobe just from them so I think that I’m equipped enough to give a good, well-rounded review of Chicwish.
What is Chicwish?
Chicwish is an affordable feminine clothing brand with an emphasis on vintage-inspired garments. They cater to many styles but they are well-known for their printed and tulle skirts.
Is Chicwish legitimate?
You may have seen some gorgeous outfits on Instagram and asked yourself “Is Chicwish a real company?” I’m happy to report that it definitely is! 🙂
Does Chicwish run small?
It’s true that many China-based retailers usually run small but in my opinion, Chicwish runs true to size! I normally wear a size small and almost always get a size small in Chicwish. There have only been a handful of times that I’ve gotten an XS or medium. To be sure of the sizing, I recommend looking at the size chart for each item to ensure a proper fit..
Is Chicwish good quality?
For the price, definitely! There have only been a few times where I felt the quality or design did not meet my expectations but I have never once had an item that only lasted one wear (like some other brands I can name). Most times the quality far exceeds the price point. The best quality things from Chicwish, in my opinion, are their coats, sweaters and skirts. The tops and dresses are usually pretty great as well and I have a variety of them. Many of the pieces have lasted me for years and still look amazing! I always get compliments when I them.
Are Chicwish skirts good quality?
Chicwish skirts are the absolute best! I just love them so much. They have the BEST selection of tulle skirts. Literally any version that you can think of, they have it. They are always coming out with unique variations as well! I probably have like 20 Chicwish tulle skirts. They are also well-known for their feminine floral skirts. They are very full and vintage-looking – an absolute treat for any girly girl! This style is very hard to find and they have an abundance (plus they are super affordable)! The Chicwish tulle skirt that I’m wearing in these photos is one of my faves!! It has a slight 1950s prom look.
Where is Chicwish based?
Chicwish is based in China.
How long does Chicwish take to deliver?
I’d say that if you are buying from the US, it’s about two weeks on average from the time you place your order to when it’s received. It could take more or less time depending on whether items are in stock, if you are purchasing during a busy time like Black Friday and where the warehouse is located (I’ve had items ship from both China and California).
Is Chicwish available on Amazon?
Actually Chicwish is on Amazon! You will find a selection of limited items on Amazon so this is a good way to get acquainted with the brand as a first time customer if you are unsure. Plus you’ll likely get quicker shipping! Keep in mind that the full selection of their items are not on Amazon so you’ll need to visit their website to view everything. You also can’t apply Chicwish promo codes on Amazon.
Chicwish Return Policy
I’ve only returned a few things and I’ve never had any issues! They give you the option of a full refund or credit with additional points added. You do have to pay for return shipping so keep this in mind. Refunds are issued soon after it’s received. I’ve never had an issue receiving my Chicwish refund.
Chicwish Customer Service
They has come a long way since the beginning! Their customer service is so kind and helpful. Any time I had a question, I’ve gotten a reply back within 24 hours (keep in mind the time difference). They’ve helped me with returns, tracking and pretty much anything else. The only thing that could be worked on is communication with separate packages.
For example, let’s say you buy three items. Two items are in stock and one is temporarily out or backordered. They will ship in stock items and backordered/out of stock separately but there won’t be any communication on this. You will receive the first package without the third item and you’re left wondering “where is the rest of my order?” Fear not, it’s still coming! If you have any doubts or want an update on shipping, simply reach out to customer service.
Chicwish vs Shein
A lot of people compare these two but they could not be more different! Personally, I’m not much of a Shein fan and this is why I don’t ever promote them. Prices definitely reflect the quality in this case. I have received low quality and poorly designed garments that are see-through, made with strange material, and fit improperly. Pieces rarely last a few washes and there is also the issue of ethics. Chicwish, on the other hand, has never presented me with these issues!
I am VERY picky with my clothing and as I’ve gotten older, I’ve definitely invested in more high quality pieces, which typically come at a steeper price. Chicwish is the best of both worlds – top quality with an affordable price tag. It’s also one of the few feminine brands that carry a variety of girly vintage inspired clothing. There is a reason that I have continued to be a loyal customer for 8 years and why I continue to work with them on a consistent basis. I only promote brands that I truly love and believe in and they are definitely in the top for me.
