is nasty gal worth it?

After reading thousands of positive Nasty gal reviews and trying their sister brands, I finally decided to check them out and place a few orders (okay, maybe I got carried away). Today, we’re going to be going over everything you need to know about Nasty Gal before making a purchase and will be providing you with our honest reviews of their tops, dresses, shoes, as well as accessories. 

First, let’s get into the specifics. 

What is Nasty Gal? 

Nasty Gal is a popular online retailer that’s most popular for selling chic, classy, edgy clothing.

A weird combo that has accrued a cult like following over the last few years. They’re not the cheapest brand out there – items are generally around $15–$50 depending on what type of sales they have going on. 

If you’re looking for extremely cheap clothing options check out SheIn, Zaful, or LovelyWholesale. But, if you’re looking for quality items that you can rely on, Nasty Gal is the perfect place. 

Is Nasty Gal Legit?

Yes, Nasty Gal is a legit US based company that does over $100 Million in business a year. The brand was founded in Los Angeles by Sophia Amoruso, a successful business woman who has a reported net worth of $280 Million. 

In 2017, Nasty Gal was purchased by one of its competitors Boohoo out of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. 

Note: Boohoo, Nasty Gal and PrettyLittleThing are all owned by the same parent company. However, they’ve made it clear that they all remain separate and sell different clothing. Don’t be fooled by what you read online – we can honestly say that the experiences from store to store are truly different. 

Is Nasty Gal Sizing True to Size?

Yes, Nasty Gal Sizing tends to run true to size. If you’re genuinely worried, check out their size finder – this will give you the best chance at getting the right size. 

After filling this out, every product page you land on will automatically show you “My size” for that particular product, which is the size you will want to purchase. I’ve found this really helpful in my experience – it’s never been wrong.

Note: Nasty Gal stocks sizes XXS to XXL. 

Is Nasty Gal Good Quality?

For the price point, I thought that the quality was very decent! Nothing I’ve purchased has faded or frayed after washing a few times, which many comparable brands have issues with. Sometimes the fabric is thin and sheer, but this has only happened to me a few times.

Shipping Speed

Now that you’ve picked out your super sexy fits, you’re probably wondering – how fast does Nasty Gal ship? 

USA Standard Shipping: 6 business days ($9.99 per order or free with orders over $80)

USA Express Shipping: 2–3 business days ($11.99 per order)

Pro Tip: If you have to buy shipping, pay the $2 extra for express shipping. We’ve found that these are less susceptible to delays.

Plus, if you pay for express shipping and it takes longer than the time stated, just message them and get your entire shipping refunded. This happened to me once and Nasty Gal had great customer service. 

My Nasty Gal Reviews: Is Nasty Gal Worth It?

Before digging into the clothing, let us tell you my overall thoughts of NastyGal. 

It’s probably more expensive than what you might be used to pay for clothes online (but, with their current amazing 50–60% off sale, it’s probably only slightly higher priced). We’ve been spoiled with brands like SheIn and Romwe that provide extremely affordable price points that we often forget how quality plays a major role in those price points. 

If you’re looking for something that’s going to stay in your closet more than a few washes, Nasty Gal is no doubt the better choice.

  • Comfortable
  • Fit well
  • High Quality
  • Easy to move in 
  • Color doesn’t fade

Looking for a party dress? Nasty Gal has a huge selection of party dresses that are high quality and are well priced. The average price is around $25, which isn’t bad for a dress (and you can definitely find lower prices for simpler dresses). 

Tops

Edgy work clothes? Is that a thing? It seems like Nasty Gal has created a sexy new look yet again! I love shopping for just about every occasion on here, they make it easy to find elegant fits. If you’re looking for something a little more risque, don’t worry, they have it all. 

Nasty Gal Accessories  

Their jewelry and other accessories are inexpensive, but much better quality than SheIn or Romwe! When you order cheap accessories online, you often get low quality items that fade or break. I’ve found their accessories to last much longer than those at similar price points. Stuff I’ve had for over a year still looks new.
