I hope everyone is doing well! Its off for me on Monday and Tuesday and holiday means a new review on the blog. I got so much PR stuff for reviewing, I need to consider doing a short review instead of lengthy ones to stick up to the deadlines, I know a lot of you have been waiting for me to get with the new review. There is lot of posts pending to be put up and I have very little time. I will be posting it up one by one and you will get to know about many new brands. Also be informed that PR reviews doesn’t mean positive opinions. I will write what I experienced and the review will be an honest view. Today, I just wanted to share with you about the purchases I made on Sammydress.com recently.
Sammydress is a wholesale site based in China and basically sells clothes, shoes, accessories, household items etc. at a very cheap or affordable price! They have a pretty collection of chiffon and maxi dresses that I have seen nowhere before. I was really impressed with the cheap price tag and huge variety of items that they had.

My Take on Sammydress
I found so many negative reviews on rating websites and blogs. But let me tell you Sammydress is 100% legit and not scam. If you are still worried, I recommend you to pay via PayPal so that you get a buyer protection and can raise a dispute to get refund when there is an issue. This site is user friendly, super easy to navigate and the items have been neatly organised into categories. There are categories and within those categories, there are sub categories to narrow your search further. You can sort and apply filters through the item by Low-High Prices, Size etc. Once you click on the thumbnail, you will be directed to the detailed page of that item. You can find the review given by actual purchasers below each item and you can see real images posted by them which are really useful. Though some of them have just posted positive reviews for S points, many of them are real views. You can S points to shop on Sammydress if you do a few activities. You can view more details about S points on the Sammydress website.

Just keep in mind that you get what you pay for. I am happy with the quality and price. The quality of each item varies but overall I rate the quality as decent. The cheap price is worth the item. One thing that pissed me off is the sizing. The sizing is not very accurate and to overcome, this you may use the converter given on the website. The size charts are given but it is not useful coz you end up getting an item of completely different size.
The customer care team is friendly and give correct information. However, they might respond very late and it takes more than a week. The live chat is confusing to use and they give some weird responses if at all they do reply. I feel it’s best if you just submit a ticket online so that the issue gets necessary attention and action from their end. I got updates regarding my order like shipping and delivery via email on time.
If you want to save the shipping fee, they always have free shipping on select items. Always choose standard or flat rate shipping if you don’t want to end up paying customs. They charge a nominal shipping fee on items based on weight. If your item is heavy, shipping becomes expensive. Express/ expedited shipping is also available which is more expensive but gets delivered faster.
Once the order is placed, they conduct Quality Control checks and testing in order to ensure the product’s quality prior to shipment. The processing time varies depending on the specific product with the average processing time approximately 4 business days; however, it can also be affected by the item’s stock status. If your order includes popular items experiencing stock availability issues, the order can take between 5-10 business days to process. Total delivery time will be processing time plus shipping time.
I got my order after 40 days of ordering the items. I am really annoyed because none of the parcels from China had taken this long. I just had to wait patiently. My order was placed on July 13 and it got processed by July 16th and shipped by 18th. I got my parcel on September last. They took only 4 days to process and the items I ordered were in stock. I wonder if the parcel took so long due to the customs clearance. It is also understandable that they ship from China and the shipping may be delayed due to some uncontrollable factors.
Warranty and returns:
There is a 7 days return warranty. If there is a Problem with the products received like Out of stock, size discrepancies, Missing items, wrong items or package sent you can contact them. They have mentioned on their site they give partial refund. I am not happy with their return policy because the customer has to pay the shipping fee to send the item back. If the fault is theirs why should we waste our money and time? Shipping back the item from an international destination is really difficult and I wonder if the parcel will ever reach Sammydress.
The items that I got:
1 Stylish Women’s Scoop Neck Batwing Sleeve Loose-Fitting Striped T-shirt: This is priced at $6.52 and is One Size with Red with Black shades in it. The material is cotton blend and comes with a scoop neck collar and full sleeve. The pattern is striped and weighs 0.6 kg. I am happy with this item coz it fit me well and it feels comfortable. The quality is good. It is attractive too. There were no discrepancies. The one size is still loose fit for me so it will fit even fat curvy people well.
Ruffles High Waistline Polka Dot Pattern Plus Size Asian Maternity Cotton Color Matching Dress For Women: I myself don’t know why on earth I ordered this Maternity Dress. No don’t mistake me. I am not married and not pregnant. It is the polka dress, material and the frock pattern that attracted me. I thought of trying it on me and if it doesn’t look good I thought of gifting it to a friend who is pregy. I ordered the size XL and it is nowhere near XL. I am really annoyed with this item. It doesn’t fit me in and it will fit only very lean S-M sized ladies. It is marked XL but it won’t fit anyone even with an L size. It doesn’t have length and it looks like a top rather than a dress. The full sleeve width is very small and it fits very tight. It is not comfortable at all. I gave it to a pregy friend and she had to say the same. In the first place, if it doesn’t fit a normal lady, how will it fit a pregy lady? The material is good and thick but the size is an issue. Never order this if you need a large size. This is priced at $12.19 and available in Colors DEEP GREEN, JACINTH, and BLACK. It is available in Size M, L, and XL. This dress falls in the category of plus sized dresses (Weird).
Here are the specifications given on the website. The measurement given in the site is same as that of the T-shirt above and still doesn’t fit. It is not knee length and it looks like a pyjama.
Silhouette : Straight
Dresses Length: Knee-Length
Neckline: Round Collar
Sleeve Length: Long Sleeves
Pattern Type: Polka Dot
Season: Winter, Fall

My experience with Sammydress was good but I had this discrepancy with size. My items came packed in a normal polythene envelope bubble wrapped. It came with a customs declaration and I didn’t have to pay any customs. My order was not marked as gift and it had the original price but still no customs was charged. I already ordered once from that site so I will repurchase from them again but not anytime soon. The prices are amazing and super affordable. I encourage you girls to give this site a try. I rate SammyDress 3.5/5 stars coz buying something that does not fit is super frustrating! Also my biggest concern is how to care for the items as no information is available like machine wash, dry wash, ironing etc.
I recommend Sammydress because they are real and not all the items are bad. Browse the entire site; get the details and then order. You just need to be careful with what you choose.
