My First Impression

I am always on the hunt for scams, and it is in my nature to be skeptical UNTIL I’m proven wrong. Here are some notable red flags I’ve come across after digging around their site:

  1. The homepage has tons of ugly, low-effort, cheap-looking banners.
  2. I see lots of low-quality, distorted images.
  3. Their product names are keyword-stuffed.
  4. Lots of grammatical errors and awkwardly-written English. For example, “Customers can browse the vast online selection and choose their favorite clothing with great satisfaction…”
  5. They use a lot of different fonts. It looks like Courier New, which is an unattractive font to use on a shop’s pages…
  6. Their product images are inconsistent in style and look heavily Photoshopped.

There are many more red flags that I undoubtedly missed. This is just my initial overview of the shop’s website – keep scrolling for a deeper dive!

About Curve Ladies

Are They Sustainable?

No, they likely are not. They don’t state anything on their site regarding efforts in sustainability. Check out this article What Is Fast Fashion, Anyway? by the good trade to learn more about fast fashion, sustainability, and how to spot it from a mile away!

Where Are They Located?

According to an email from customer service and their Facebook page, they are located in the United States. Their business address is 1569 Thomas Street, Chicago Lawn, IL. However, according to the Page Transparency section of their Facebook page, their business page is run by managers located in China. This leads me to believe they are most likely based there.

Where Do They Ship From?

According to my tracking information, my order was originally shipped from overseas. I received my order from a distribution center in California (United States).

All of the items in my order were made in China.

Customer Service Experience

Responsiveness

They were pretty slow to respond, and I had to send a follow-up email. I had to ask SIX times for the return address and wait a whole two weeks before getting it.

Return

They provided me with the following return/refund options:

  • First Email: “…would it be a considered solution that we offer a 20% refund as compensation and you keep the item/s you would like to return please?”
  • Second Email: “How about you keep the item and we refund you 35% of the item’s price as compensation and offer you a 20% off coupon for the next order?”
  • Third Email: “… the highest possible compensation amount of 50% for you keeping these items and no return. Would you accept?”

I rejected all offers and moved forward with a standard return/refund back to my original payment. They asked that I write my order # and product IDs on paper, include it in the package, and email them the return tracking number.

Refund

Once they received my return package, they tried to deduct $10 from my refund for the shipping cost, even though I got free shipping on the order. Here is how the conversation went:

  • Support: “As your order was shipped to you, the courier company has already charged the shipping cost, we have to deduct the $10 shipping fee. The final refund amount would be $81.97. Please confirm before we handle the refund.”
  • ME: “No. You should have disclosed/asked this BEFORE I sent the return that you would deduct the shipping cost from the refund subtotal, not the total.”
  • Support: “We are happy to refund the price of the item/s you returned (not including the shipping fee of $10 as we had shipped it) after receiving the parcel and checking. The shipping fee was charged by the logistics company, not us. So the first time we sent it to you, the logistics company charged us. That’s the reason why we need to deduct the shipping cost. Please confirm the final refund of $81.97 and we will process the refund in the next email.”
  • ME: “Yes, they charged it to you, and YOU paid for it. I did not pay for shipping. I paid $0 for shipping.”
  • Support: “Thank you for your understanding. I have submitted a refund request of $91.97 to our finance department.”

Regarding getting the refund, I had to follow up THREE TIMES. Each time, they allegedly ‘submitted the refund request’ to their financing department. How irritating.

Is Curve Ladies Legit or a Scam?

‘Sister’ Sites

Read this List of Online Stores that I suspect the owner of Curve Ladies also owns and operates. I put this list together using plagiarism tools like Copyleaks (premium), and by looking for clues like identical landing pages, matching site logos, PayPal merchant names (if there are similarities to my other orders), business addresses, site layouts, etc.

Reverse Image Search

Based on my findings, there are MANY other small boutiques/online shops/marketplaces that appear to sell many of the same items as Curve Ladies. Possible reasons for this include the use of the same suppliers, this shop operating as a wholesaler or marketplace, the same owner operating multiple stores and/or selling on multiple platforms, the use of stolen images, etc.

With that being said, I found several of the same products on Amazon, etc. for much cheaper. For example, I found the below dress for $28.42 on Curve Ladies, and $6.31 on Amazon.

Based on the reverse image search results, I believe these are near-identical, low-quality items offered at vastly different prices.

Website/Company Search

No suspicious information (such as lawsuits or alerts from the Better Business Bureau) was found.

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience, this company is a SCAM and I would avoid shopping here. Here are 4 reasons why:

  1. ALL THREE of my items do not look like their product images. 
  2. The material of one of my items is not as expected. What they advertise on the product page does NOT match what is listed on the material label.
  3. Though I received free shipping, they tried to deduct a $10 fee from my refund for the shipping. 
  4. I had to follow up for my refund THREE TIMES, despite them claiming to have submitted the refund to their financing department.

Additionally, their clothing is bad quality, their prices are high, and I had to ask for the return address SIX TIMES. So, although you may miraculously find an item or two that are okay, they are not worth your money or time.

To wrap up this post, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible.
