Today I’m talking all about my experience shopping on the fast fashion website, Yoins. If you’re wondered if Yoins is legit or are looking for Yoins reviews, this post is for you.
My experience shopping on Yoins
I placed my first (and probably last) order from Yoins in the fall. Ever since posting my comprehensive Shein review (last updated here in 2022), I’ve been reviewing other online fashion companies to see how they compare.
At first glance the Yoins website looks just like the Shein website or other fast fashion Chinese sites. There is a very busy homepage with coupons flashing, discount codes, and free shipping. There are popups and requests to turn on notifactions.
Digging a bit deeper into their site, they seem to cater to a more specific style (trendy young millenials). There’s are a lot of tight, short, strappy, and cut-out.
The prices range between Forever21 and GAP. Yoins doesn’t have the dirt cheap prices we used to see on Shein (a soft cami for $16.99, for example). Maybe these higher prices mean higher quality items?
I placed an order of 5 items to see.
What I ordered from Yoins and a quick review of each. I give each a letter grade next to the item name and have included a product image or me in the item of clothing.
Item 1: TRENCH // A
I am obsessed with this light weight trench coat. I’ve worn it dozens of times and it is on constant rotation all year round here in California.
What I love:
- the weight of this: it is super light, rather oversized, and easy to throw on over ANYTHING
- the color: it is a really good medium khaki
What I don’t love:
- it is unlined (which works for the lightweight + the drape of the fabric but it looks cheap inside the jacket
- loose threads: I had to trim a few loose threads upon arrival
Item 2: Sleeveless Cardigan // D
I was really disappointed in this piece. I thought it would be super cute to throw on over jeans and a basic tee but the material is like a cheap, thick, tee shirt material. It doesn’t drape nicely and looks like something one would wear in biblical times. It did work well for a Professor Trewlaney costume at halloween, though.
Item 3: Tweed Blazer // C
The outside of this one is fine. The blazer is unlined so the sleeves don’t cuff without looking cheap. If you’re trying to get this vibe without spending a ton, it isn’t a horrible choice. Personally, though, I’d order a lined blazer from Shein for the same price (or a little less).
Item 4: Striped Turtleneck Sweater // B+
This is a good basic sweater. I love the stripes. I like the fabric. The fit is gently oversized. I don’t love the look of the thick gold buttons on the neck (the lower quality of a piece tends to show in hardware and this holds true on this sweate).
I did keep and wear this sweater throughout the fall and winter. It looks great with dark skinny jeans and camel leather accents. If I were shopping again I’d probably look for the same thing at GAP or Target without the hardware.
Item 5: Corduroy Flares // C
These are fine. There is a bit of a stretch to the material (which is on the thinner side of medium weight).
Is Yoins Legit? Frequently Asked Questions
Is Yoins Legit?
Yes, in the sense that Yoins is an actual website that will send you actual clothes. If you love the style of something you find on Yoins and don’t care a lot about super high quality pieces, go for it. I didn’t love most of what I ordered BUT the trench I got has been a workhorse in my closet for the last 6 months.
Who owns Yoins?
The Yoins website lists the parent company of Yoins as Cyllar Co. Ltd with an address in Nicosia, Cyprus.
How long does Yoins shipping take?
If you are using standard shipping to the United States it takes 12-15 business days. Express shipping is 5-8 business days. Both of these estimates don’t take into account the time for orders to process so add 2-3 days to whichever shipping method you select at the time of your order.
You can always see the expected delivery date in your account on Yoins.com after your order has shipped.
Is Yoins safe?
Yoins is an established online retailer that accepts Paypal and credit card. If you’re looking for an added layer of fraud protection, opt for paying with Paypal instead of giving out your credit card information.
Is Yoins a scam?
Yoins will ship you clothing similar to the images shown on their website. Shipping will take a bit longer than usual and the clothes are hit or miss. Be sure to read reviews before ordering (paying attention to reviews that have images so you can tell they are more likely to be verified customers and not bots leaving positive reviews to boost ratings).
