Shop details for Fashionmia
Fashionmia.com is a well-established fashion online store from China, which was founded in 2010 but only became really popular in the past year. The shop offers every day fashion and current street style fashion and as one of few Chinese fashion shops it actually offers plus size fashion. It's sad, that we need to put emphasize on this point, but it's still a rarity.
Fashionmia doesn't offer free shipping, but it has great pricing and a lot of coupons and promotions available, so that you can still save a lot of money.
Experience with FashionMia
On the interned you can find a mix of experiences with this online shop. But you know how it is: usually people only take the time to leave a review on the web, if they've had some bad experiences, so we wanted to test the shop ourselves and placed some orders.
Our orders each arrived within four weeks - so the average delivery time when ordering from China. The quality matched the prices - we had some perfectly sewn clothes as well as loose threads and more, so we were satisfied all in all with our FashionMia orders. All other pros and cons down below:
Choose at FashionMia between the two most popular payment methods: PayPal and credit card payment. Great option, if you're in a hurry or don't want to sign up at FashionMia: you can finish your order as a guest, so no need to create an account at this shop.

Shipping Costs and Delivery Times
Sadly Fashionmia doesn't currently offer a free shipping option. Sometimes the fashion shop offers free or discounted shipping during some promotions, but not on a permanent basis. Usually you can choose between the following two options:
- Super Savings: comparably inexpensive (often offered with an extra shipping fee discount), should arrive within 5 - 15 business days
- Expedited Shipping: definitely more expensive, but if you're in a rush, this should be worth it - shipping takes between 2 - 5 business days (+ processing time!)
To the point: choose between a fast and a slower option / a more or less expensive option
FashionMia and customs
Our order from FashionMia arrived without any delays or complaints from our side. Still, you should take some time and read up on your local regulations concerning international customs fees to avoid any problems.
For shipments entering the US, extra taxes and fees on your product are possible. Not every item is taxed when entering the country, and the majority are only subject to a nominal processing fee of between $2 and $9 in the case of a random customs stop. The amount to be paid, however, can vary widely depending on the product and how it’s sent. If you are concerned about your item, or are planning to order goods in excess of $500, it is worth it to check with the Customs Office at the port of entry to confirm any extra fees.
Any extra taxes or duties on your shipment will either be paid at your door when the mailman drops it off, or the package may be held at your local post office. In which case, you will need to go pick it up and pay any applicable fees in person.
You can return all of your ordered items within 30 days to FashionMia. But keep in mind: the items have to be in their original packaging and be unused and undamaged. Before you return anything, you should contact customer support, announce your planned returns and send them a tracking number of your parcel.
You have to send the package back to China and you won't get a reimbursement for the return shipping costs - so don't order too much, otherwise the return shipping fees might be pretty large. We recommend placing smaller orders to learn about the proper sizes and quality of the fashion pieces available. ;)
So far FashionMia was pretty great in our tests, the only considerable downside is that it doesn't offer any free shipping option yet. But still, it has a large fashion range and some great promotions with impressive discounts, so that it's still possible to get some inexpensive and stylish bargains!
