Lady Boutique BD Review and Order Details

I ordered the below items on 12/8/2023 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $163.96 to ladyboutiquebd (service@ladyboutiquebd.com) via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *LADYBOUAW6Y”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Alabama Sequin Casual Sweatshirt

  • Brand Label: Unknown
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Red / M / $44.99
  • Country: Unknown
  • Material: The product page states Cotton Blend.

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent, but is somewhat poorly constructed. The sequin elephant is slightly crooked. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it fits big (I wanted an oversized fit). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Lady Boutique BD sweatshirt.

Though the material feels comfy enough and has some weight to it, the sequin elephant is of decent quality, and I like the raw and inverted style of the hem, this sweatshirt is representative of the University of Alabama football team, and the colors matter. Their real logo is more of a crimson red, whereas this sweater is a bright scarlet red. Also, the material is somewhat stiff, and the inside feels similar to a thin towel. This alone isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but for the price, I expect something a bit better in quality.

2) Color Block Plaid Shawl

  • Brand Label: Unknown
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Black / One-Size / $29.99
  • Country: Unknown
  • Material: The product page states Cotton Blend.

Expectation: It is exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is okay, but it is constructed somewhat poorly. There is a lot of tension right around the back v-shape area, causing the weakening of the fabric in that area (you can see the material thinning). See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: It is one size, and it fits well. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Lady Boutique BD shawl.

I love that it is elegant-looking and reversible, but there are some issues. Firstly, it slides back as I move around (it is heaver from the back). To fix this, they really should put small, discrete round weights at the bottom of both sides of the front to help counter this. Secondly, the material at the v-shaped area, right where it meets my neck, has a lot of tension and is fragile since it splits there. If you look closely, you can see the material both thinning and starting to overstretch where it is curved. And finally, the material is the equivalent of a thin scarf from Target. Not especially durable or special.

Shipment Info

I received two items in one package at my address in North Carolina (United States). The package came from a warehouse/distribution center in the United States. I was provided a tracking number through USPS.

Note: I waited 2 weeks after ordering for a shipment email, but never received one. I reached out to them and they provided a tracking number within a day.

Package Shipped From: 371 Little Falls Rd. STE 4, Cedar Grove, NJ 07009

  • Order placed on Fri, December 8th
  • Order shipped on Wed, December 20th
  • Order received on Thurs, December 28th

Total time of 20 days

Note: Their shipping policy states up to 20 business days (including processing time) for flat-rate U.S. shipping.

Return & Refund Info

I emailed support (service@ladyboutiquebd.com) to request a full return on January 17th. My request was approved the next day on January 18th, and I was provided with the return address. I mailed the package on January 23rd via USPS and paid a total of $30.55.

The refund is pending.

Provided Return Address: 

English Version: West of 5th Floor, Jintiantuo Office Building, No. 10 Guanjin Road, Danzao Town, Xiajiao Dongyang, Nanhai District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province, 528216 (China)

Native Version: 广东省佛山市南海区丹灶镇贯金路10号办公楼5楼西面(古道仓储)

If your return is international, I recommend printing out the native language version of the return address. For example, if your return needs to be shipped to China, print out the address written in Chinese characters. Tape it on the package next to the provided English address — per the advice of a USPS worker, doing this can help with delivery on the other side (though it is not mandatory for successful delivery).

If you received the same return address as I did and it is an international address, I have provided it above. Otherwise, it may be worth asking customer service for it.

Support Experience

  • They never sent me a shipment email; I had to ask them TWO WEEKS after I placed the order for the tracking information. 
  • When I finally received my items, I was missing two of them. I emailed and asked where they were, and they said they were unavailable/out of stock. They didn’t bother to inform me about this earlier.
  • They alternatively offered me the following refund/return option:
    • Partial refund of 10% of the value of the items I want to return + one-time 15% discount code for a future purchase + keep the items

Provided Return Instructions:

  • Please mail your items to the provided return address through your local courier.
  • After returning, please send us the return tracking number and name of the shipping company or a photo of the postal receipt.
  • We will issue a full refund for the returned items after it is delivered.

Similar Sites & Analysis

Plagiarism Search:

Read this List of Online Stores that I suspect the owner of Lady Boutique BD also owns and operates. I put this list together using plagiarism tools like Copyleaks (premium), and looking for clues like identical landing pages (About Us, Contact, Return Policy, Shipping, etc.), matching Google 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 that sell many of the same items as Lady Boutique BD. This could be due to using the same wholesalers/suppliers, the other shops stealing Lady Boutique BD’s product images, or Lady Boutique BD using stolen product images.

With that being said, I found several of the same products on AliExpress for much cheaper. For example, I found the below jacket for $63.99 on Lady Boutique BD, and $30.13 on AliExpress. Based on the reverse image search results, I believe these are the same items offered at vastly different prices (as opposed to one being a cheap-quality version of the other).

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience so far, they are a legitimate shop. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, was approved for a return, and mailed the return package. I am waiting for the refund.

With that being said, I personally would not shop here again.

While the clothing quality, to my surprise, isn’t terrible, there are MANY reasons I would not shop here again. Firstly, it took them TWO WEEKS to ship my items out. I had to reach out to them because I hadn’t seen a shipment email come through. By the time I did receive the package, two items were missing. I had to reach out to them AGAIN to ask about this, and they told me these items were out of stock. They couldn’t be bothered to tell me this during the THREE-WEEK TIMESPAN from order to delivery. Secondly, the return address is in China. I returned $75 worth of clothing for $30… terrible deal. Finally, I found many of the same items for much cheaper on sites like AliExpress (I believe these are the same items or are of near-identical quality).

To wrap up this review, regardless of my experience, be sure to read as many customer reviews as possible. If you found this post helpful in your search for Lady Boutique BD reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
