Wholesalebuying Fashion Review: Printed Cutout Romper + Mesh-Trim Dress

Hey guys! Here's part two of my back-to-back super-affordable-fashion reviews, featuring Wholesalebuying, an online fashion store that I've never reviewed before! I'll be reviewing two items from the shop: an asymmetric printed cutout halter romper and a mesh paneled skater dress. Review ahead!

Here's part two of my back-to-back super-affordable-fashion reviews, featuring Wholesalebuying, an online fashion store that I've never reviewed before! I'll be reviewing two items from the shop: an asymmetric printed cutout halter romper and a mesh paneled skater dress.


This is my first experience with Wholesalebuying, an online clothing, shoes, and accessories shop that has tons of super inexpensive, affordable items. I previously wrote a wishlist with some of my favorite items, and finally got the chance to try out the store!

I ordered three items in total, adding up to a little over $14 (not including shipping fees). Even though I ordered three items, I only got two items: the asymmetric printed cutout halter romper and the mesh paneled skater dress. The third itemthe strappy collared blouse—wasn't in the package when I opened it.

I contacted Wholesalebuying about this, and they told me that the blouse was out of stock. They were quick to resolve the issue, but I definitely think they should've sent me an email or some form of notification rather than having me contact them first.

Anyway, onto the two items that I got:

The first item that I picked out was an asymmetric printed cutout halter romper, currently sold for $4.43 and offered in sizes S-XL.

This romper from Wholesalebuying features an allover geometric print, tie-back halter neckline, asymmetric hem, hidden zipper, and side cutouts with a thin crochet trim.

I've had my eye on this style for quite some time and finally got it when size S came back in stock. I've seen the same product sold in various online boutiques for $20-40+, but Wholesalebuying offers it for less than $5!

This romper features an allover geometric print, tie-back halter neckline, asymmetric hem, hidden zipper, and side cutouts with a thin crochet trim. It's constructed from a lightweight cotton blend that's both breathable and flowy, making it the perfect summer piece.

The print, neckline, cutouts, and lace/crochet trim look exactly as pictured on Wholesalebuying's site, but unfortunately, the fit is way off. The shorts portion at the bottom is very loose and baggy, and it's too long and wide compared to the model photos. Sadly, the bagginess makes it look odd on me, and it doesn't have the figure-enhancing effect that I'd anticipated.

This would honestly be a great item if the bottom half fit better. The fabric is thin, but not that different from a lot of $20+ summery rompers that I've seen in stores, and the print is simple yet cute. It's an amazing concept, but poorly executed. I still think I could make use of it with a boxy longline cardigan and whatnot, but it doesn't quite live up to my expectations.

The second piece that I received was a mesh paneled skater dress, sold for $6.25 in black and white, sizes S-L.

It's made of a crisp yet super-stretchy fabric, a lot like the pink dress I just reviewed in my latest Dresslink review.

The fabric wrinkles quite easily, but it's pretty comfortable and figure-hugging. The padded cups make it easy to wear without a bra, but I got the dress in white, and while it's not see-through, you can faintly see the outline of the padded cups if you look closely.

I wish the skirt had a more free-flowing feel to it, and I'd certainly like this dress a lot better if the material didn't wrinkle easily, but nonetheless, I really love how it looks! The fabric, though not the best, gives it both stretch and structure, with a form-fitting top and flared skirt that enhances your figure.

I love the thick elastic criss-cross designs at the back, as well as the contrasting black mesh trim, which add some stylish touches to this simple white dress. It's super easy to pair with all sorts of outerwear, shoes, and jewelry, and though its not perfect, I'm pretty happy with it!

Overall

My first experience with Wholesalebuying had its ups and downs. I was pretty confused when I didn't receive the third item, but happy with the company's quick response to my emails and eagerness to solve my issue. I was also a bit disappointed with the fit of the romper, but the dress gave me a renewed hope in Wholesalebuying. They're similar to Dresslink in the fact that their items are sort of hit-or-miss, but everything they sell is just so affordable that I can't help but want to try more!

  2. I love the second dress! I think wholesale type websites are definitely hit or miss in general. I have had great experiences with some items and very poor experience with others. It's just a luck of the draw really!
