Fashion in 2022 is a huge thing! Either on the streets or on social media, almost everyone is well-dressed!
I know sometimes the pressure is on especially when there are so many online clothing brands you can choose from.
When fashion and styles are changing every week, it's also hard to keep up with current trends. I've been having a hard time keeping up with my favorite influencers and stylish friends, so a shopping trip was in order.
SHOPCIDER (otherwise known as just Cider or Shop Cider) came to save my day. 🎉
Shop Cider is a "social-first fashion brand." They really include their followers in their marketing and they aim to create what the average buyer wants to see! They make modern celebrity trends affordable. 💸
I'd never shopped there before, but I loved all of the Shop Cider ads and hauls I saw on Instagram and TikTok. Could Cider fast fashion really be that cute?🤔
I decided to put it to the test. Keep reading to learn all about my experience with Shop Cider and my final thoughts on this social-first fashion brand! 💁
My SHOPCIDER Clothing Haul
I kept my first haul pretty small to make sure that I actually liked the brand before spending the big bucks.💰 After all, I'm a girl on a budget and I know how fast fashion can be sometimes.
I got 5 total items. Because Cider uses a pre-order model, they only produce clothes they know that people will love. All of them were stylish.😍
I bought these items myself and have worn them to give the best review. I'm considering:
- Overall style
- Size Accuracy
Anyway, before I get to my final review, let's talk about each item that I received in my order!
Solid Ruffle Sleeve Mini Dress
After browsing through the dresses, I chose the Solid Ruffle Sleeve Mini Dress in black. I got a size large and it was $32.00. 💵 The material is 100% polyester, but it's still comfortable and flowy enough to wear all day without getting too warm.
Some of my favorite things about this dress are:
✨ It's comfortable
✨ It's long enough to move around in without a wardrobe malfunction
✨ It's flattering on my figure
At the end of the day, it makes my waist look completely snatched and that's going to be a selling point for me any day.
I'd wear this dress on a first date, to brunch with my friends, to a casual wedding reception, or just out and about. Because of the sleeves, this dress 👗 is great for spring and autumn.
The Main Event Tank
Summer might be almost over, but a good tank is a year-round staple. I got the Main Event Tank in black and a size large. It was only $18.00 💸💸!
This tank is a crop top with a bit of fancy flair. The scoop neckline is flattering and it has a super sweet rhinestone accessory to add some sparkle. It's 95% polyester and 5% spandex.
My favorite things about this crop top are:
✨ It's super stretchy and comfortable
✨ You can dress it up or down!💎
✨ You can go bra-free
✨ Not too much cleavage (unless you want it 😏)
I love this crop and I can see myself pairing it with high-waisted skirts, jeans, nice trousers, and yoga pants. The extra sparkle puts it above the other tank crop tops in my closet and it seems to be good quality.
I'd wear it out to the club with my friends, to influencer events, on a saucy date, or to a festival.
Unbothered Cut-Out One Piece Swimsuit
Swimsuit season might be over, but I couldn't resist the Unbothered Cut-Out One Piece Swimsuit. 👙
This is an orange and white one-piece that I got in a size XL for $22! It has a cool seventies vibe with the colorful swirls and halter-style top. The high-cut legs remind me of Baywatch!
So what do I love about this?
✨ Stretchy and comfortable
✨ Looks great with a skirt or jeans for an easy transition from poolside to the club
✨ Great coverage despite the cut-outs
✨ Easy to move and swim in without falling out of it 😅
Overall, this is a solid suit to add to my collection. It made me feel super confident and comfortable, and everyone knows that this is not always the case when you're bathing suit shopping. 🙄
Naturally, I'd wear this to the beach or a friend's pool party. I can also see myself using it as a body suit to wear underneath a sheer dress or with a pair of pants.
Solid Bowknot Corset Midi Dress
Another dress from Shop Cider Clothing! I got the Solid Bowknot Corset Midi Dress in a size medium for $26.00. It's a nice dusty rose color! 👗
If you're short like me, this dress will likely be almost a maxi on you! I'm only 5'2". That said, it still looks great, so I'm not mad about it 😅. It's 100% polyester.
I love this dress because:
✨ The color compliments my skin tone
✨ It's super flattering on my body
✨ It's totally feminine-chic
I would wear this dress anywhere, but it would be great for a semi-casual brunch, dinner with my family, a date, or a vacation.
Asymmetrical Hem Blouse
My last item was a black Asymmetrical Hem Blouse that I got in a size medium for $26.00. It's 100% cotton and it feels like it's of good quality! This isn't one of the specific styles I'd normally go for, but I'm glad I got it.
I love this shirt because:
✨ The material is thick
✨ You can wear it buttoned or unbuttoned
✨ It works with a variety of outfits
✨ The asymmetry is unique
Depending on how you wear this, you can wear it anywhere. Pair it with a crop top or bralette for a saucy night out at the club or keep it buttoned for a casual work meeting. It's up to you.
Why Shop At Cider: My Key Buying Factors
So that's my haul of Cider clothing, but what are my thoughts on the overall Shop Cider brand?
Let's break it down based on my decision factors.
Because of the social-first model, it makes sense that the styles would be top-notch and trendy. Everything I bought I could totally imagine an influencer wearing. Some clothing on the site was a bit "out there" for me, but all of it is stylish.
For a fast fashion company, the quality was better than expected. These clothes don't feel like they'll fall apart and I should be able to wear them for several seasons.
I can see myself wearing all of these pieces in multiple settings. Even the risky cut-out bathing suit is beyond wearable!
This is tricky. You should check the sizing charts before you make a purchase. As you can see, I needed multiple sizes.
Shipping is free if you buy $49 worth of items and it only takes 5-7 business days. Overall, that's great!
Pros and Cons
A quick recap: the things that I like about Shop Cider are:
✨ High-quality products
✨ Super trendy styles
✨ Very wearable
✨ Great shipping
What I didn't love:
🚫 Confusing sizing
I think that buying from Shop Cider was a good experience and I would do it again.
There are plenty of competitors in the fast fashion industry, but the 3 big ones we'll talk about are Shein, Lovito, and ZANZEA.
Shein is a fast-fashion brand that's gained worldwide fame. It's more popular than Cider, but the clothing (in my experience) is hit-or-miss. They also produce more waste as they overproduce clothing. The pre-order model of Cider sets them apart.
Lovito has cute clothing, but this brand isn't as well-known (and I find it less trustworthy). The clothing is stylish but looks cheaper.
ZANZEA is an AliExpress store. They offer a wide variety of sizes, but overall, the quality is not ideal. 🙅
SHOPCIDER has cuter clothing and seemingly better practices than the other affordable brands.
In conclusion, I wasn’t sure what the quality would be like and I wasn’t expecting too much when I bought these clothes at Shop Cider, but let me tell you wow, was I wrong. I was really blown away by the packaging and quality of the clothing!!! Everything was made with great material.
The style of their clothes is on-trend but they also pass as timeless and classic pieces! They have a lot of clothes that don’t easily go out of style, so it’s a great investment if you want to grow your wardrobe. Most especially, the garment fit is not just comfortable, it’s very flattering too!
Overall, I recommend this clothing store to all of you out there who are looking for a high-quality and social-first fashion brand. They offer a wide selection of clothes in different styles, so you’ll be assured that you’ll find pieces that suit your taste.
🤔Why Trust Me?
I'm a fashion lover who spends hours scrolling through fashionable styles on social media. I have a closet full of trendy clothing and plenty of experience with both good and bad styles.
My eyes are often bigger than my wallet, so I know how important it is to find a good deal on clothes, especially for the new generation. Shop Cider fast fashion is right up my alley.
Let's get to the Q&A! There are a few things future customers might want to know before they make a purchase. Here are a few frequently asked questions!
Is Cider the Same as Shein?
Cider and Shein are not the same. They use a similar model and they both feature fashionable clothing, but they are different brands.
Does Cider Ship to the UK?
Cider ships almost everywhere, including the UK. You can see Cider's shipping details on their website.
Where Is Cider Clothing Based?
Cider is based in Guangzhou, China. While they have an American address, their home base is Chinese.
Is Cider a Good Brand to Buy From?
Like all fast fashion, you have to consider the cost. Comparably speaking, Cider seems like a solid brand. You won't be getting the highest quality, but the clothes are stylish and comfortable.
Is Cider Clothing True to Size?
Cider clothing is not true to size. I recommend you read reviews for each item and make sure you double-check the size charts before purchasing.
