Emery Rose

Have you gotten ads for Emery Rose before? Maybe you’ve seen their incredibly inexpensive clothes and wondered if they could really be any good?

They do a great job of having pretty pictures on their site. I ordered a set to test them out and see how they compare to other online fashion brands.

History of Emery Rose

Emery Rose is owned by Shein and appears to be their “cottagecore” brand. You can buy Emery Rose pieces directly on Shein’s site or on the Emery Rose website. You have a more curated aesthetic on the Emery Rose site and avoid the overwhelm of the thousands of new daily arrivals on Shein.com. In contrast, Emery Rose adds about 1000 new skews weekly.

Is Emery Rose Legit? My Shopping Experience + Emery Rose Review

Emery Rose is a B2C fast fashion brand based out of China. It appears to be owned by Shein and you can order through their site or Shein’s.

Here’s what I ordered:

I placed this order through Shein’s website because I was already ordering a few Shein items and so I didn’t need to meet a minimum shipping requirement on Emery Rose’s site.

First Impressions:

It arrived in a bag that said Shein on it in the time frame mentioned in the standard shipping.


I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this set, given the price. You can definitely find a higher quality set made of real linen on Amazon for a higher price point. That said, this set is not see through or sheer which felt like a huge win. It did need to be steamed before wearing (this is my favorite steamer from Amazon).

I haven’t worn and washed this set very often yet so I’ll come back and update this on how it holds up. I assume it’ll be similar to the sets I’ve ordered on Shein before. Generally quality is a hit or miss. Occasionally I’ll find gems and some things are disasters. This is a solid A- for how it held up to expectations and a B- for overall quality.

I will likely hang dry these pieces like I do with most of my clothes or put them on the dryer on the lowest heat setting.


Overall, sizing runs true to size. This set has a generous fit that works with a lot of different body types. When shopping online I look for pieces like this, especially in new-to-me brands or places where sizing is less consistent. I could probably loose or gain 10 pounds and this set would still fit (boxy top, drawstring pants with an elastic waist).

Conclusion: Will I order from Emery Rose again?

Probably not. The brand’s aesthetic doesn’t thrill me. I won’t avoid Emery Rose pieces from Shein’s site if there is something I love (they will get you with those gorgeous product images and great social media ads).

But, if you found something you LOVE on their site, are on a tight budget, and are willing to hang dry your clothing, I won’t tell you not to order it ;).

Is Emery Rose Safe?

Emery Rose is a reputable fast fashion brand with millions of customers. I always still use PayPal when shopping with these type of retailers to protect credit card information.

Tips for Shopping on Emery Rose

Okay, so Emery Rose is a legit site. But how can you find really great items? With tens of thousands of items to choose from across so many categories, how do you find something you’ll love? 

1. Read the Reviews:

The BEST thing you can do to improve your experience with any of these Chinese fast fashion reatilers is to read the reviews of items before you purchase. It is helpful not only to see if it has positive reviews, but to check the review’s comments about sizing, quality, material, and color.

You can find out if something is sheer, running small, or oversized from the reviews. It is also helpful to look at the images uploaded and compare those to the product pictures.

2. Stick with the Emery Rose sizing measurements

Even if you’re usually an XS and you think the size guide must be wrong because on this top it’s telling you to order a L, believe the sizing guide. And remember, the sizes aren’t consistent across the site so keep your measuring tape handy and check the measurements for each item you add to your cart. It’s also helpful to check Emery Rose reviews from customers about sizing.

That said, you’re PROBABLY fine just ordering your regular US size if you aren’t up for the hassle of measuring.

3. Be ready to steam + hang dry: 

Out of the package pieces are quite wrinkled and unimpressive but they clean up well. I typically hang dry delicate clothing and Emery Rose pieces are no exception. This linen-like set needed a lot of wrinkles taken out before it was ready to wear. Be sure to have a steamer on hand (this is my favorite one from Amazon) to freshen up your pieces.
