Wholesalebuying Fashion Review: Shorts, Leggings, White Dress + Floral Top

Hi everyone! Today I'll be reviewing my second experience with Wholesalebuying, an online fashion store similar to Dresslink, selling a huge range of styles at extremely low prices! I got four items that I'll be talking about in detail, including beige crochet shorts, 2-in-1 gray skirt leggings, a white cutout bodycon dress, and an off-shoulder floral chiffon top. Details after the jump!

Today I'll be reviewing my second experience with Wholesalebuying, an online fashion store similar to Dresslink, selling a huge range of styles at extremely low prices! I got four items that I'll be talking about in detail, including tiered beige crochet shorts, 2-in-1 gray skirt leggings, a white cutout bodycon dress, and an off-shoulder floral chiffon top. - Eat My Knee Socks/Mimchikimchi

The first item that I got was a pair of tiered beige crochet shorts. These are sold out now on Wholesalebuying's site, but they costed $3.64.

These shorts are very well made and could easily sell for $15-$30+ in other stores! They feature a thick waistband, tiered crochet layers with scalloped edges, and an adorable lace design throughout. The inside is also fully lined with a smooth, silky fabric

The waistband has a slight bit of stretch, and the shorts fit comfortably. These were originally offered in black and beige; I picked beige, and the color is exactly as expected, a sort of cream-tone, off-white that's super easy to pair with other warm or neutral-toned clothing.

For just a little over $3, I'm beyond impressed with these shorts. They're a great steal and work well as adorably shorts for spring or summer, or as styled-up safety shorts under tunic-style dresses and sweaters!

The second item that I got was a pair of charcoal gray 2-in-1 skirt leggings. These leggings, also offered in black, coffee, and wine red, currently cost $5.40.

These leggings are constructed from a soft, stretchy, and lightweight cotton, with a stretchy waistband and inset skirt design, so it gives the look of wearing a skirt over leggings with just one piece!

I accidentally over-filtered the pictures above and got to lazy to re-edit them (oops:']), but the actual color is a darker, charcoal gray, accurate to the site photos. See my modeled photos below for a much more accurate idea of the actual color!

These leggings are super comfortable and easy to wear; you can easily pair any sweater or top over them for an effortlessly cute look. Since the fabric and waistband are both very stretchy, you can wear it high-waisted or wear it slightly lower for a slightly ruched effect in the skirt.

My only complaint with these leggings is that the sizing wasn't perfect for me. They're only sold in one size, and I found them to be a little too short, even though I'm not tall. Also, there's no distinction between the front and the back, so the skirt part tends to be a bit too short in the back. The price is good for the style and quality, but I really wish they fit better.

Next up in this Wholesalebuying fashion review is a white cross-front keyhole cutout bodycon dress, sold in one size for $6.05. It was originally offered in black as well, though it's only offered in white at the moment.

This dress is made of a stretchy, form-fitting, yet slightly stiff-feeling fabric, like the other white dress I talked about in my previous Wholesalebuying review. The dress features a low-cut, keyhole-style front cutout, bodycon fit, crossed straps, and cutout at the waist, with a hidden zipper at the side.

Unfortunately, this dress fell victim to the common flaw of white dresses: it's quite see-through, especially in the skirt section. The front is padded, and the padding is somewhat visible, while the skirt is definitely not opaque. For these photos, I had to wear safety shorts underneath.

The way this dress is designed lets you choose if you want to wear it with the straps crossing at the front or the back; since the model photos show how it looks crossed at the front, I figured I'd model them with the straps crossed at the back for a different idea of how to wear it.

Although I'm upset with the sheerness of the fabric, I must admit that I love how this dress fits. The material is extremely stretchy and formfitting and, as a result, this bodycon dress hugs your figure all the way through. The fit is ultra-flattering, and I really wish I chose to get it in black instead, so that it'd still have the amazing fit and interesting style without the sheer white fabric. I don't think I'll be wearing this dress given the fabric and all, which is a shame because I honestly love the fit and style more than that of anything else I've gotten from Wholesalebuying.

The final item that I got was also the most unique item: an off-shoulder blue-and-pink floral print chiffon top. This top, sold in sizes S-XL, costs $6.04 currently, though it was around $6.46 when I ordered it.

This uniquely-styled Finejo top features tin spaghetti straps, off-shoulder sleeves, a cropped fit, and ruffled front design, all on top of a semi-sheer light blue chiffon fabric with a gorgeous blue-and-pink floral print.

This top, like the other three items, looks accurate to the pictures on Wholesalebuying's site. I got it in size S, which is accurate to the measurements given on the product page. The hem has an elastic band, and so do the ends of the sleeves, giving it an interesting flowy and partly-puffed shape, and the sizing is perfect.

The material is semi-sheer, but works perfectly with a nude-colored bra. The lightweight, thin chiffon fabric also gives it that angelic, flowing look, and the floral print is slightly muted for a soft, dreamy vibe. Although the puffed shape isn't the most flattering, I love how this top looks when paired with high-waisted skirts.

I took a chance when picking this top since I wasn't sure if I loved or hated the style. The off-shoulder, puffed-sleeve cut is definitely unusual, and thankfully I ended up loving it! Plus, even if you're not a fan of the attached sleeves but still like the ruffled tank top portion and floral print, you can easily just tie the sleeves at the back to transform it into a sleeveless top!

Here, I'm wearing this top tucked into a pastel blue pleated tennis skirt from Fusion Republic (reviewed here; get 10% off with my code mimchikimchi!) for a sweet, Japanese Liz Lisa-esque look. Although this was the priciest of the four items, it was my favorite overall!

Overall

I've probably said this before in a previous review, but when it comes to stores like Wholesalebuying which sell so many styles at jaw-droppingly low prices, the items are often hit-or-miss. Out of the four that I got this time, the crochet shorts and floral top were absolute hits, while the skirt leggings fell a bit short (LOL GET IT BECAUSE THEY WERE SHORT haha im gonna stop now is anyone reading this lol) and the white bodycon dress was just too sheer to wear. Although not all items met my expectations, the crochet shorts and floral top were amazing picks, and everything added up to just about $30 including shipping, so I'm still fairly satisfied with my second Wholesalebuying experience.

  1. I often find that cheap chinese wholesale leggings are too short for me too! Which is weird since I'm only like 161cm myself. :D

    Anyway, I love your picks! Sorry to hear some of them fell a bit short! :/
