  • hey everyone it's me Alex and everyones

  • favorite bird, Archie!

  • [Music]

  • today's video is a try on haul. we're

  • looking at a brand called Shein. It's

  • basically she-in (s h e i n). if you've never

  • heard of Shein before it's a cheap

  • Chinese clothing company and when I

  • first talked about them I think it was

  • well over a year ago now that I talked

  • about them, they were nowhere near as big

  • as they are now. they are so popular now

  • and that's mostly due to the fact that

  • they have a huge plus-size selection of

  • clothes on their website. they have a

  • section on the website for standard size

  • clothing but there's an entire tab for

  • plus-size clothing so in today's video

  • not only am i going to be reviewing

  • the standard size clothes from Shein,

  • this is also a plus size haul because my

  • friend Tiasha is an Australian size 14 to

  • 16 so she falls nicely into their

  • category on the probably like 0 XL side

  • of shein plus size but all the clothes

  • in the plus-size section go all the way

  • up to a 4 XL. we tried to buy as many

  • items of clothing that were similar from

  • the standard section to the plus-size

  • section. now some items are available in

  • both sections but we did find that they

  • would have similar alternatives but they

  • weren't exactly the same so for example

  • we have a skirt in today's video, it's a

  • two-toned pink skirt, in the standard

  • section it had a zip down the front with

  • white trim and in the plus-size section

  • it was slightly longer and the zip

  • looked a little bit different so we've

  • tried to pick out items that are very

  • very similar. we're going to compare the

  • price, we'll compare the fabrics, the

  • quality, the make, the size.

  • we've got pants, skirts, tops, jumpers,

  • dresses, all sorts of things. so Tisha!

  • everyone's favorite friend

  • Tiasha! and she's wearing green today. I'm

  • appeasing the overlord. hopefully are you

  • going to be kind?

  • he's side eyeing me. so what was your

  • impression of Shein when you looked at

  • it? so the plus size section really

  • excited me, there's so many, so many nice

  • clothes and it's like, not just sacks

  • that make you want to like cover your

  • body, like there was like actual trendy

  • clothes so that's what I'm excited about.

  • they had so many things. I was I

  • was half-expecting it would be like one

  • page of dresses or one page of skirts

  • because it normally is really, yeah there

  • were pages and I think under the dresses

  • section was there like 2,000 items or

  • something. really a little overwhelming.

  • it was very overwhelming. so we've got our

  • bags, so I reckon let's start just pulling

  • items out and we'll try and match

  • everything up.

  • I see the cherry design, yes so we've got..

  • this is a really cute dress with

  • cherries all over it there should be a

  • second one they're different colors they

  • are different colors they look the same

  • On the website. they were very similar on the

  • website oh wow I'm so sorry this is the

  • plus size you git the plus size I'm

  • different fabric let me feel

  • straightaway oh I like this fabric more

  • oh you're just thicker but I think I

  • this one's nicer you reckon yeah just

  • cuz i like i like it thinner you know

  • like a like a shirt fabric right if you

  • go to button up should you said like a

  • work shirt you feels like that sort of

  • fabric it feels like silky but kind of

  • elasticy, yummy

  • you're not plus size sorry Archie my one

  • is open so this is a wrap dress so you

  • actually wrap it up at the front is

  • yours attached? Mine also is open oh is it

  • yeah it's just got a little clippy button. okay so

  • they're both wrap dresses. oh how exciting

  • this one looks a fair bit shorter than

  • your one. yes that's a fact

  • and print wise yours has polka dots I

  • did try to find one with cherries and

  • polka dots but unfortunately I couldn't

  • I really like the polka dots but I think

  • this shade with the cherries looks nice

  • yeah I really like this color next we

  • also have a black pinafore now on the

  • plus size section for pinafores they had

  • this fake leather, fake leather god I

  • really wanted to get a fake leather one

  • that looks great I am so excited that

  • looks awesome so my one I couldn't get

  • in the standard size section a fake

  • leather

  • PU is that it polyurethane I

  • couldn't get one did not exist so this

  • one is just like a stretchy fabric still

  • cute this is really cute I like the look of that

  • one more because yours has a pocket on the

  • front and mine does not mine looks a

  • little bit shorter than yours as well I

  • think that's gonna be case with all of

  • them just cause of the sizing thing like

  • generally you want slightly longer

  • things if you have thick thighs yeah we

  • put a zip on the back for me and a zip

  • on the side for me okay it works well

  • I'm surprised this didn't come in your size.

  • yeah really thought there would be PU leather but I guess

  • not, so we got rainbow dresses okay I

  • must say it's very rare that if you're

  • in shopping in the standard size section

  • for clothing it's very rare that you're

  • gonna be the disappointed one now I'm

  • not saying this is a bad thing I'm just

  • saying I would be so used to you know

  • there'd be something really cool in a

  • standard size section and it wouldn't be

  • available in the plus-size section I

  • literally always happens. yes always

  • opposite here you had this awesome

  • rainbow long shirt dress and this looks

  • incredible look it's got these buttons

  • at the top here it's so cute

  • nothing like this existed in the

  • standard size section there is still

  • like a rainbow dress a long dress so

  • this is the one from the standard size

  • section yeah so this one slightly

  • different rainbow I much prefer your

  • rainbow. yeah mine's cool this is very

  • colorful and beautiful mine it's still

  • nice yeah it's got green on it at least

  • I know this is long-sleeve

  • so your size yeah mine's a long sleeve, yours

  • a short sleeve not impressed and same

  • Fabric, same fabric I like this so

  • much it looks like a cool jersey, like yes

  • now I reckon if you're shopping from

  • standard sized clothes you can still fit

  • into one of these and it would probably

  • just look like an oversized dress which

  • is cute I think that this one the

  • maximum size came up to a large so I'm

  • really excited about these these are

  • super cute I'm actually glad that we're

  • not perfectly matching, same, because if

  • we ever Rock up at the same thing

  • together and we decide to wear our

  • rainbow top we won't look identical so

  • it's still I guess haha ok these are

  • cool this is something I've never dared

  • to delve into because I feel like it's

  • just not something that you would

  • naturally go for when you're plus-size

  • but this is super cool like a skin tight

  • bodysuit like with them Wow I'm suit

  • that's awesome I'm so excited to do this

  • looks like I'm gonna be really very nice

  • fabulous it's lovely

  • so cozy I know who's gonna be like a

  • meshy kind of thing that's super no it's

  • not I thought it was gonna be sheer not

  • sheer, very very soft turtleneck yes yep

  • okay nice tick tick this came all the

  • way up to a 4 XL for memories why does

  • it say diabetes diabetes personal attack

  • does that mean something no what else

  • does it say yeah read that to me okay

  • but bond do nee I'm guessing that says

  • bond do nee I like your accent thank you

  • very much holidays always a good idea

  • oops

  • oops diabete, everything's checking out

  • except the diabete, surely that means

  • something else is that that is not

  • referring to diabetes maybe it means

  • like sweet No

  • so let us know what Daiya bet me yes

  • this is awesome yeah I'm excited I'm

  • jealous because mine isn't that nice -

  • no way feel this it's okay fabric this

  • is what I thought mine would feel why

  • this is kinda kind of seen almost like

  • scuber kind of fabric very stretchy

  • but this is the type of fabric that when

  • it stretches it becomes shit yeah yeah I

  • bet ya see as you stretch it and it gets

  • these like white lines and you can kind

  • of see through it

  • however the design is beautiful listen

  • to my anime go the anime goes with red

  • your size but look how why would they

  • not sell because they make it but you

  • know what I like that third because I

  • like that it's not like you know the the

  • plus size is just an afterthought or

  • we're just adding more sizes for you

  • it's like we've made this you have your

  • own section you can get cool stuff

  • yeah it's normally vice versa it is

  • nice but I'm also just like it wouldn't

  • it be easier to just make everything and

  • all that is true I just don't get it I

  • don't understand anything so that's fine

  • yeah next up is this good very exciting
