NewChic has been around for over 5 years. We’ve never tried them out since they’re not nearly as popular as other fast fashion China retailers, but after starting our review series, we thought we should give it a shot. Today I’ll be sharing my honest NewChic reviews – I will go over pricing, shipping, sizing, quality, and my overall experience with the brand.
What is Newchic?
NewChic is an online fashion brand located in China that focuses on delivering quality clothing and accessories. Unlike many other online retailers in China, NewChic goes out of their way to make sure the quality of pieces sent out are as high as they can be. Because of this, you’ll find they tend to have better ratings online compared to other retailers.

Is Newchic a Scam?
NewChic is legit! It’s very much the opposite of a scam, you’ll most likely save money when shopping here. It currently sits at #4 in our top retailers from China for reasons we will cover later in our reviews.
My NewChic Reviews + Ratings
Overall, I had a pretty pleasant experience, everything about this company was better than expected. For one, they have an amazing selection of sweaters!
Since my initial order, I’ve ordered 3 more. They are statement pieces and are good enough quality they will last a few winters. Their home section is another of my favorite. Here are some other positive features of the brand:
- Dedicated Plus Size Section
- Shipping speed is one of the best from overseas
- Quality was excellent
- Easy Returns
- Affordable pricing
The pricing is a little higher than most overseas retailers, so it wasn’t a shocker that the quality was as high as brands like Topshop, Zara, and H&M.
- Quality Material
- Stays together when washing and doesn’t fade
My experience with shipping was excellent! I received my order in around a week, which is unheard of with overseas brands like this.
Having ordered from 20+ overseas brands I have a little more than enough experience to be considered an expert.
Sizing & Comfort
Newchic does a great job of sizing their pieces.
If you’re unsure of how something will fit, check out the size guide located on each product page. They go above and beyond in their size guides to make sure they cover every measurement.
I applaud their effort in having an entire section to plus size, but I felt it lacked depth in options. It has a large variety but everything was obviously picked out by someone that’s not plus size. Almost every single item is flowy, nothing to accentuate the curves that’s why i’m giving it a 7/10
This was the only downside, generally when I order from brands from China I expect a steep discount. However, if I’m comparing it to the brands we shop here in the US, I can still say it’s cheaper (especially when you get a good sale or coupon).
With styles and shipping as good as brands here in the US, I probably should be comparing it to those. Compared to Forever 21, for example, they have better pricing with a comparable selection (and typically better quality)!
Like most other overseas retailers, NewChic doesn’t have the best return policy. They do allow returns within 30 days, but you need to pay for the return shipping yourself. Unless you have a lot of items to return, this isn’t usually worth it.
So, you’ll want to make sure to check their sizing guides and NewChic reviews from customers on each of their products to ensure you know what you’re getting.
Also, you can’t return certain items due to hygienic concerns (including shapewear, underwear, pajamas, and swimwear).
Final Thoughts: Is NewChic Worth It?
I’d definitely give this retailer a try, especially if you’re looking for seasonal clothing, One of my favorite things about NewChic was that they have seasonal collections. So, if it’s fall they are going to be following a fall color palette, making it extremely easy to build out a matching wardrobe. The quality is surprisingly good and the shipping speed is quicker than almost all of their competitors.
If you’re not completely sold on NewChic, SheIn is one great alternative to check out.
