Have you been wondering if Chicwish is legit? If so, I’m dishing all the details on shopping the site, PLUS a try-on of 30+ outfits in this Chicwish review!
I came across Chicwish a few years ago when one of my favorite bloggers shared a sweater from the site. I fell in love with it and was eager to try the clothes myself, but had the same questions you probably do.
Over the years, I’ve since become a fashion blogger myself and now I work with the brand from time to time. However, I was purchasing their clothes for quite some time before I ever collaborated with them.
And no, this is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to give you my personal Chicwish review since I now have a ton of their items and LOTS of experience with their pieces, and I know many people have questions about shopping there.
So, without wasting any time, let’s get into this Chicwish Review.
What is Chicwish?
Chicwish is an online shopping destination for fun, flirty fashion. Their original idea was to cater to a young demographic, but now they now offer much more than that.
At Chicwish you’ll find chic, vintage-inspired pieces with lots of girly details (think ruffles, lace, embroidery) that are pretty affordable. From dresses to rompers, crop tops, and sets, they’ve got something for almost every occasion.
Here are a few Chicwish items/outfits
I sized up to a medium for the inseam in this because I have an extremely long torso and the fit is perfect. The quality is great and I love it for a summer night because it’s lightweight.
I often find that rompers in this type of material tend to be sheer but this one isn’t because there are several layers. There is also a clasp in the front so that you don’t have to worry about your chest hanging out if you bend over.
Just a quick note: My heels and bag are not from Chicwish, but I’ve had both for YEARS and highly recommend them. The block heel on these sandals makes them easy to wear for hours at a time.
As of right now, this set is unavailable and I am kicking myself for not grabbing it in another color. It is incredible! Very soft, not itchy, and just the right amount of sexiness.
This sweater is so cute for Valentine’s Day. I wore it for my daughter’s party at school and it was the perfect festive piece without being overboard.
Is Chicwish Good Quality?
From my experience, Chicwish IS good quality. I have many pieces from the site and have yet to have any that aren’t good quality. There have been a few I didn’t like, but those items I didn’t prefer simply because of the fit. I can honestly say that I’ve never received a piece of clothing from Chicwish that was of poor quality.
The Chicwish pieces that I have are made from high-quality, durable fabrics that are comfortable and hold up well in the wash.
A few more Chicwish pieces
Coat/Cardigan? Could be both! I love it paired with all black for a chic, classic look.
This floral skort and blouse set is exactly what comes to mind when I think of the type of clothes Chicwish offers. Sadly, this set is no longer available, but I had to share it as it’s one of my favorite pieces from the site. I’m typically a size 4 in bottoms so this set fits true to size. Who knows, maybe they’ll bring it back?!
Leopard Maxi Dress | Heels
This dress. LOVE. Really, really love. The print is absolutely gorgeous, it’s lightweight, and the adjustable tie around the waist gives a beautiful shape. I highly recommend this dress!
I love this romper too, but I should have grabbed a medium for the inseam. I find that most Chicwish pieces run true to size, but if you have a long torso it’s a must to size up in the rompers for the inseam. Again, this romper isn’t see-through because there are enough layers and it also has a clasp at the top for the chest.
How Long Does Chicwish Take To Deliver?
Chicwish has 3 options for shipping.
1.) Free Shipping which arrives within 9-12 days once shipped.
2.) USPS Ground Shipping for $3.90 which arrives within 8-9 days once shipped.
3.)DHL EXPRESS Shipping for $25 which arrives within 4-6 days once shipped.
I’ve personally never had Chicwish deliveries extend several weeks as you might find with Zaful, Shein, Romwe, etc., and it seems as though this is the norm. If you head over to TrustPilot, you’ll see that Chicwish has an excellent rating of 4.5 (out of 5), with over 1,575 reviews.
Additionally, Chicwish offers shipping insurance for $1.99. In the event your package gets lost or damaged, Chicwish will immediately send out a new package for you.

I loved this skirt so much I got it in 2 colors. The fabric is incredibly soft while also being stretchy. It goes so well with a sweater and over the knee boots, but would also work well with heels and a blouse. I really hope they bring these back because I’ll be going back for more colors!
Same skirt, different color, I paired it with this crop-ish sweater so that I could tuck it in without too much bulk and it worked perfectly. The sweater is actually considered off-shoulder, but I have broad shoulders and it CLEARLY is not off-shoulder for me lol.
I actually don’t love off-shoulder styles because I find them to be uncomfortable, so I was happy that it fit me this way.
I had my eye on this jacket for SO LONG. It is just the perfect classy, yet functional item. I love it paired with leggings and over the knee boots but I’ve actually seen people wear it as a dress, too.
The fully removable/adjustable tie around the waist gives your body shape and it can be adjusted to your needs/liking. It has pockets and a wide, turned-down shawl collar. It’s also fully lined and the wool/polyester blend is enough to keep you warm. I also grabbed this one in another color because I loved it so much.
Same jacket, different color/print! These boots aren’t from Chicwish, but I highly recommend them. I have them in 3 colors now and they are all still in excellent condition, even after much wear. The block heel isn’t too high and they actually stay up without having to constantly pull them up all day long.
I hesitated on purchasing them because of the sizing, but I’m really glad I pulled the trigger. For reference, I am a size 7.5 and the size 38 fits me perfectly.
You can almost always find a promo code for this site for 40% off.
What is the Chicwish Return Policy?
Chicwish items can be returned for a full refund within 30 days from the date you received it. You should receive your refund to your original method of payment within 7-10 days once they receive your package (per their website).

I’m sure you can tell by now that I tend to use the same bags and swear the same shoes over and over again. I don’t feel the need to buy new things just to buy them, so I try to find staple pieces that I can wear in many ways. I love these heels with skirts and dresses but they also look great with jeans for date night.
This dress runs on the shorter side, but it is such good quality. It’s stretchy and great for winter because it’s pretty thick.
I hardly ever wear purple, but I thought this sweater was so chic. It’s very light and because of the crochet fabric, it’s see-through. I recommend wearing it with a nude bra or cami underneath. Although I love the look of this sweater, it’s one of the few pieces from Chicwish I found to be uncomfortable because it was itchy.
I grabbed this sweater to wear as part of a casual, yet put-together outfit. It looks great with over the knee boots but I think it would work well with a leather miniskirt as well.
These boots are the same ones I shared earlier in this post, just in a different color.
How Do I Return Something To Chicwish?
Chicwish returns are simple. You log into your account and request a return. Chicwish provides you with a return label and when returned, it will deduct $8 shipping from your return amount. You can also use your own label to send it back if you think you can get it cheaper that way.
Additionally, if you receive a defective Chicwish item, just reach out to customer service. They will issue you a new product and you won’t have to send the defective one back. I mean, all companies should do this, but sadly, they don’t.
More Chicwish outfits
This set… OBSESSED. I just think this outfit is everything… sexy but not too revealing, comfortable, and elegant. Obviously, it’s not an everyday outfit, but it is great for a vacation or summer party. It also comes in 2 other colors as well.
If you’re not into turtlenecks, I get it. My sister teases me and say’s I’m a granny but I love them lol. NJ winters are freezing so if it keeps me warm, I’m wearing it. This sweater is great because it works for leggings, and who doesn’t love leggings?! If you’re a bit taller, I’d recommend sizing up if you want it to cover the buns. For reference, I’m 5’4″.
These boots and leggings aren’t from Chicwish, but they are both staple pieces in my closet that I get A TON of use out of. Yes, the leggings are an investment, but they have lasted me years and when I tell you I wear them like 5 days per week in the winter, that’s not an exaggeration.
I grabbed this top in a medium because I have broad shoulders and I wanted to wear it off the shoulder, but as you can see, it’s still not big enough for me to do that lol. It does run true to size though, so I would recommend sticking to your normal size unless you want it off the shoulder.
This dress is AMAZING quality. The attention to detail is just so spot on. The lace design in the front is beautifully made and the material is very thick and stretchy (I find much of Chicwish’s items are made of this material).
Chicwish BBB Reviews
If you take a look at Chicwish on the BBB website, you’ll see that they’re not accredited and also have a score of F, which is not a good thing. However, I’m a bit confused by this as Chicwish has 24 5-star (out of 5 stars) reviews on the BBB site. All of the reviews state that the quality of the clothes they received is amazing and the customer service was excellent.
All of the (16) customer complaint details are “unavailable” so it is hard to tell what these customers had issues with (or at least that’s what I’m seeing).

#Twinning. If you have a mini that loves to match with you, these sweaters are great! The kid’s version actually has a clasp at the top, the adult size does not. These are heavy and bulky, perfect for winter, or a fun photoshoot.
If you’re looking for an elegant, comfortable skirt, with excellent quality, this is it. It does run on the bigger side though. I should have grabbed it in the XS, which I hardly ever wear. I love it paired with this sweater because the sweater is on the shorter side so it tucks in nicely. Same heels as above!
How beautiful is this dress? I’m not typically a maxi dress kind of girl because I find that they swallow my body, but this one was too pretty to pass up. Bonus point because there’s a matching kids dress.
This dress is insanely gorgeous but I will say, it is SHORT AF. I know it doesn’t look like it, but that’s because the overlay is longer than the liner. The liner barely covers my cheeks and I’m 5’4″. I recommend wearing a pair of white bike shorts under this for added coverage. Otherwise, it’s just so beautiful.
Is Chicwish Ethical?
Are the employees treated properly and paid fairly at Chicwish? That I don’t know. Of course, I’d like to think so, but if you have any information that maybe I don’t please, by all means, feel free to share.
Where is Chicwish Shipped From?
Chicwish items ship from the US, UK, Belgium, and/or China. The location of the shipment depends on where the item ordered is currently in stock.

I had my eye on this skirt for probably like a year before I went for it. The hi-lo hem and ruffle detail make it a stand-out piece of clothing and paired with this top, it is the perfect summer outfit. I find that the skirt runs slightly large. I’m wearing a small and its a bit big on me.
Another amazing find from Chicwish. This coat is lightweight and I personally love it as a cardigan over a simple white cami. The folded cuffs and wide lapels give it a chic yet casual look that takes any basic outfit up a notch.
I had been seeing this sweater for like 1-2 years all over Instagram and really loved the look. However, I wasn’t thrilled with the fit of this. I didn’t like how the armholes were wide open and when I lifted my arms the whole sweater came up.
I just didn’t find it to be very comfortable for me. The material is great, I just wasn’t a fan of the fit.
I think cardigans are great for just about any season so admittedly, I probably have way more than I will ever need. I loved the color of this one and this oversized fit.
Is Chicwish Legit?
From my experience, yes Chicwish is legit. As you can see, I now own MANY items from the site and haven’t had any major problems with any of the pieces I’ve received.
Is Chicwish Better Than Shein?
100% yes but of course, this is a personal opinion. I find that the fit of Chicwish items is true to US sizing and I hardly ever have to resort to the size guide. However, I still recommend doing so if you are a newer customer until you get a feel for how their pieces run as everyone is different.
The quality of Chicwish clothing is also MUCH more consistent and reliable. I don’t consider Chicwish to be fast-fashion like Shein.

I was confused at first about how to put this cardigan on lol. If it weren’t for the pockets, I would have been lost. I like the oversized fit and how you can pair it in several ways. Because it’s an oversized fit, it would work well on just about any body shape.
I get compliments on this top every time I wear it. The neck and wrists are elastic and the stop itself is very lightweight. The design is beautiful and the quality is great.
As mentioned earlier, I have a very long torso, so I don’t think this top fits as short on most people as it does on me. If you’re into girly pieces, this top is for you. Even though there is a lot of crochet, this top is also of great quality.
This was another dress that I loved but just found it to be too short for me. I’m 5’4″ and if I raised my arms, my whole arse would be out. It would be cute with leggings though.
Chicwish Reward Program
Chicwish also has a reward program where you earn 1 point per dollar spent. For every 10 points earned, you receive $1 off. You can use these points towards your next purchase.
Chicwish almost always has a promo running as well. Currently, you can get $5 off orders over $60, $15 off orders over $100, and $25 off orders over $150 with code JU25.
Does Chicwish Accept Paypal?
Yes. Chicwish takes payment via Paypal and I highly recommend going this route if you’re concerned about receiving your products. Paypal is typically really good about working with you in these types of instances (or at least that is my experience).

Another Chicwish purchase I absolutely love. The quality of this skirt is great and it’s sexy without being too revealing. It pairs great with a sweater but also looks nice with a tank top and heels.
If it’s leopard and it’s oversized, I’M BUYIN’. This sweater again is of the same stretchy, yet thick fabric that many of Chicwish items are made of. It’s very high quality and so comfortable. There is ribbing around the bottom for shape just like around the wrists.
I strayed a little from my usual style on this one, but really glad I did. This top is beautiful. It’s another blouse that works well in summer even though it’s long sleeves, because of the light material.
Chicwish Review Overall Thoughts
I happen to absolutely love Chicwish. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t continue to work with them over and over again. There have been PLENTY of brands/retailers that I don’t work with because I don’t feel that the quality of their items is up to par.
If you’re looking for quality, girly, vintage-inspired looks that won’t cost a fortune, I highly recommend giving Chicwish a try.
