A 100% Honest Review of Chicwish

If you’re considering purchasing, but you’re unsure of the quality, sizing, and customer service, here’s a 100% honest review of Chicwish.

*Disclaimer: Monthly packages arrive from Chicwish to be shared across my many platforms, but that, in no way, sways my opinion of this company.

I love a good online fashion retailer as much as the next gal, but I do my research before I buy. When Chicwish reached out to me a few years back, I was hesitant. I had partnered with a handful of Asian, fast-fashion brands in the past, and my experience left much to be desired. Unsure of what to expect, I agreed to be sent a handful of items off my wishlist in exchange for some Instagram photos. Here we are, nearly two years later, and I would consider this brand to be one of my favorites to shop with.

If you were to take a peek into my closet right now, you’d notice that 80% of the items are from Chicwish. While there are many other brands I know and love, it seems that the pieces I receive from this particular company stick around the longest. In fact, some of them are so nice, I’ve bought them twice (I just received this sweater in red, and can’t wait to share)!

Now let’s get into the nitty gritty details about Chicwish.

Product Quality

To say I was impressed with the quality would be a major understatement. I was expecting cheap, low-budget articles of clothing that fell apart after one wash or a few wears. I quickly realized that was not the case, however, and that these pieces lived up to their price points. In particular, there was one gingham skort I wore no less than 75 times, and it didn’t show its wear until around September of this year, when I yanked too hard on the zipper and the metal piece snapped. If you tend to shop at, say, Nordstrom, Express, LOFT, and the like – you’ll find that Chicwish is certainly up to par.

Prices

Piggy-backing off what I just mentioned, the prices match those of middle-range retail favorites. The lower end of the spectrum would be pieces that cost $25+ and the highest prices you’ll see are on their items of heavier materials or real furs, hovering around $100-140. You’re paying for quality! The cost per wear is absolutely worth the price.

Sizing

Any trustworthy fashion blogger will tell you that when it comes to online-only retailers (especially those based in Asia), you should always double and triple check the sizing charts. These will be your best friend. I also suggest reading through any reviews, looking at how other buyers styled the item, and trusting your gut. I’ve found that 99.9% percent of the time, my “normal” size fits just fine.

Customer Service

I have never once experienced bad customer service with Chicwish. Their representatives don’t always have the most eloquent English, but they’ve never been rude, their replies are always timely, and they take great care of you if there are troubles with your order or you need another size.

Selection

This brand offers a very wide range of clothing styles. They include everything from Free People-esque tunics to street style-chic trench coats to pineapple-print summer pieces that are worthy of Coachella. I have recommended their website on more than one occasion to women searching for wedding guest dresses. They also offer the best sweaters in my opinion. I will re-wear their sweaters for all eternity (you know, because the quality is that good 😉).

Demographic

Don’t think you need to be in your 20’s to enjoy this shopping experience. Their styles reach a large demographic. They even offer “mommy-and-me” pieces!

Shipping

Since they have teams and offices in multiple countries, their shipping time is quite fast. Typically, when I make an order, my package arrives between 5-7 days. Express shipping is also offered if you need your items by a particular date.

    Stephanie, I love these photos. They’re 100% perfection – location, outfit, and you!! 🙂 I really like Chicwish but I have trouble with the sizing being short and petite. I’m still figuring it out but the quality of everything I’ve gotten from them has been just as great as companies here. I hope they add more boho type stuff – that’s my fav!

    Thank you for sharing! This was really helpful as I’ve heard of Chicwish before, but thought it was one of those sketchy online sites being that I’ve never gone to the website myself. I just visited because of your post and I think I will try ordering from there soon. Thank you!

    You look so darn cute in this skirt! I’ve only browsed their site — it’s definitely a bit iffy ordering from overseas. But I love that you shared your honest thoughts.

    Maybe because it’s the prices but I always thought that Chicwish pieces were better quality than, say, Shein for example. Good to know they pass the quality test! Good to know about customer service too!
