Is Lime Lush Boutique Legit? A Comprehensive Review

Status: Pending Refund

You’re considering purchasing clothing from limelush.com, but you’re hesitant because of possible online scams, right? I understand that it can be tough to trust reviews as companies often pay influencers to give positive feedback, regardless of product quality. But here, you’ll get a completely honest review. Let’s first address the question: Is Lime Lush a legit website? The short answer is yes, they seem to be a legitimate site. I received my order, was approved for a return, and mailed the package. But, assuming the refund process is smooth, would I shop here again?

Lime Lush Review and Order Details

I ordered the below items on 1/8/2024 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $261.61 to Lime Lush Boutique (questions@LimeLush.com) via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *LIMELUSH”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Cherry Blossom Heart-Pattern Long-Sleeve Sweater

  • Brand Label: Miss Sparkling
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Pink / L / $49.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 42% Acrylic / 28% Nylon / 30% Polyester

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

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. 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 well (I ordered up for a looser fit). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Lime Lush sweater.

Though it is very soft, stretchy, fairly thick, and the PERFECT design for Valentine’s Day, it’s a bit too box-shaped for my liking and it creates A LOT of static (which makes that boxy effect MUCH more pronounced and weird-looking). For sweaters and things I will likely wear in the cooler months, I prefer natural fibers to avoid the static problem. The sweater is VERY cute though.

2) KanCan Light-Wash Ultra-High-Rise Flare Jeans

  • Brand Label: KanCan
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Blue / 13 / $66.99
  • Country: Made in Vietnam
  • Material: 98% Cotton / 2% Spandex

Expectation: They are exactly what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is decent. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and they fit two sizes too big. View my Body Measurements for size reference. Please note that I am wearing 2.25 inch/5.7 cm platform sandals.

Keep or Return: I would return these Lime Lush jeans.

The most obvious reason is that they are two sizes too big. Additionally, the length is a couple of inches too long for my 5’5″ body, (I am not a big platform shoes/heels wearer so the extra length isn’t desired). I tried folding them, and I don’t care for the look since they are flared bottoms. Overall, despite the thinner denim material, I do like these jeans as they have a lot of stretch to them and have that year 2000 look with the distressed edges and stylized seams (where the front pockets should be). If they were smaller and shorter, I would keep them without hesitation.

3) Flying Tomato Fuchsia Floral-Print Tiered Maxi Dress

  • Brand Label: Flying Tomato
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Multi / M / $64.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 100% Polyester

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 poorly. The hanger strap on one side was mistakenly sewn into the waist seam. 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 well. View my Body Measurements for size reference. Please note that I am wearing 2.25 inch/5.7 cm platform sandals.

Keep or Return: I would return this Lime Lush maxi dress.

While I think it fits beautifully, is a pretty floral pattern, and is a great style/length, it is defective. The hanger strap got sewn into the waist area, and this issue causes the dress to not quite sit right on the body. This strap keeps the material from straightening out all the way. Aside from this defect, it is VERY static-inducing (you can see from the profile image that the skirt suctions my shins), the shoulder straps feel thin and cheap, and there are many mildly fraying edges with tiny threads coming off. Generally, not the best quality dress but would be very cute in a more humid/less dry climate. The price is a bit high for the quality though…

4) Cobalt One-Shoulder Ruched Mini Dress

  • Brand Label: DO+BE
  • Color, Size, and Cost: Blue / M / $59.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 100% Polyester

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

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is okay. 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 well. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Lime Lush mini dress.

While I like the ruching, color, and one-shoulder style, the side with the slit is HIGH. For myself, it is a bit scandalously high, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing this out. It does fit in a flattering way though, and the material feels soft & smooth. The zipper felt a little tight getting up, but once it was zipped, it fit perfectly. Overall, it isn’t a good style for me and the price seems a bit steep.

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, assuming my refund goes through, I would *conditionally* shop here again.

My experience overall has been good. Fast shipping (8 days), cheap returns (if you purchase their $1.98 re:do return label at checkout), the clothing quality is okay/decent, and all of the items arrived exactly as pictured.

The reason why I would conditionally buy from here again is because of the prices. The clothing I got feels like clothing I could find at Target (or even a little worse quality than Target), except more expensive. So, if Lime Lush had something unique that I couldn’t get from a place like Target for cheaper, then yes, I would purchase it. However, it’s extra disappointing that all of their sale items are final because I think their sale category would make shopping with them worthwhile.

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 Lime Lush reviews, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
