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. Low-quality homepage banner images, and a majority of their product images look AI-generated or heavily altered.
  2. Lots of pop-ups to spin wheels, sign up for newsletters, log in to their site, etc.
  3. Their homepage is LOUD and cluttered with tons of banners, discounts, and colors. Their product pages are also cluttered.
  4. They use emojis in various titles.
  5. They have lots of grammatical typos such as, “…customers are not assessed any additional duties or taxes…”, “…so you can purchase the latest cost-effective apparels.”, etc.
  6. Their Reviews page shows all 4-5 star ratings, each with images attached. TONS of these reviews are the same few women under different usernames posting their photos.
  7. They use different casing all over the site. All-caps, uppercase, lowercase, etc.
  8. Their product titles are keyword-stuffed.

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

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. The material feels cheap. 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 normally have to order separates (bigger bottoms), but they actually fit! View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. The bottoms are lined just in the front half, and the removable cups are small and cheaply made. See my Quality Comparison & Rating Chart to know my current quality-rating standards.

Value: It is NOT worth the price I paid. You can find fully-lined, decent-quality swimwear on sale somewhere else.

Is Rosewe Legit or a Scam?

‘Sister’ Sites

Read this List of Online Stores that I suspect the owner of Rosewe 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, Rosewe steals product photos from brands like Ever-Pretty, and edits them. Here is an example of a dress from Ever-Pretty ($74.99), used on Rosewe’s site ($39.98):

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 2 reasons why:

  1. The material listed on the label of one of my items does NOT match what is listed on the product page. I normally wouldn’t make a big deal of this since it’s just a few percentage points, however, they are the same company as Modlily. When I ordered from Modlily, two of my items were made from polyester according to their labels, but were advertised as nylon. Deceitful!
  2. They steal and heavily alter their product images. The golden dress above is from Ever-Pretty. They did a poor job Photoshopping it – if you zoom in a bit and look, you can see it’s the same image.

Additionally, the quality of their clothing is mediocre, their products are overpriced, and they initially lied to me when I asked about their affiliation with Modlily. So, although you may find a few decent items, they are not worth your money or time considering their deceitful business practices.

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