SeaFancy Review and Order Details

1) Floral Halter-Straps Sweetheart-Neck Swimdress

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Pink / L / $35.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: Different materials are listed in two places:
    • Product page- 80% Nylon / 20% Spandex
    • Care label-
      • (Shell 1) 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
      • (Shell 2) 85% Polyester / 15% Spandex
      • (Mesh Lining) 90% Polyester / 10% Spandex

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. I did not realize that it came with back straps that were removable, and I did not see that there was cinching at the center of the top.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. 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 about one size too big. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this SeaFancy swimsuit.

The bikini is not double-layered all the way around (just the front of the bottoms), it has sloppy threads in some areas, and the style just isn’t for me. The price isn’t terrible, but I could find something better quality and better fitting for the same price at Target.

2) Striped One-Piece Swimsuit

  • Color, Size, and Cost: Striped / L / $35.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: Different materials are listed in two places:
    • Product page-
      • (Shell) 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
      • (Lining) 90% Polyester / 10% Spandex
    • Care label-
      • (Shell) 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex
      • (Lining) 88% Polyester / 12% Spandex

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. The line patterning, however, looks different from the product image. The lines are less bold, more frequent, and closer together.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is mediocre. 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 half a size too small (a size up would be ideal). View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this SeaFancy swimsuit.

I like the pattern and coloring, but I see sloppy threads in some areas, it fits a bit too small, and only the front part of the swimsuit is double-layered. I would likely keep this if it were bigger, since I like the style and coloring so much.

3) Open-Front Sunflower Crochet Cover-Up

  • Color, Size, and Cost: White / One Size / $35.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: 100% Polyester

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. It has a slightly beige tint to it in person. I expected a stronger bright white color.

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

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

Keep or Return: I would return this SeaFancy swim cover-up.

The threading in general feels and looks very frail. I already see some threads in the embroidery coming loose and fraying especially along the edges. The hem is also uneven (one side is longer than the other). With all of that being said, it is WAY too expensive for the quality.

4) Floral Sweetheart-Neck Twist Front Bikini Top With Mid-Waist Bottoms

  • Color, Size, and Cost: White / L / $32.99
  • Country: Made in China
  • Material: Different materials are listed in two places:
    • Product page-
      • (Shell) 80% Nylon / 20% Spandex
      • (Lining) 100% Polyester
    • Care label-
      • (Shell) 82% Nylon / 18% Spandex 
      • (Lining) 88% Polyester / 12% Spandex

Expectation: It isn’t what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance. The top fits in a way where the straps appear concave (they curve inwards). The model in the product image shows straps that look more straight and wider-set.

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

Fit: I ordered based on the size guide provided, and it is the right size but doesn’t fit my body shape well. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this SeaFancy swimsuit.

The front part of the bottoms has an inner lining, but the back is just a single layer of material. I also see unfinished edges of material everywhere (on the inside), and the top fits ever so slightly loose, while the bottoms slightly pinch into my skin.

Support Experience

  • Customer service was quick to respond and promptly provided me with the return address. They asked for pictures of the sticker liners on the swimsuits beforehand.
  • Upon asking for a return, they offered a 30% refund + keep the items + a coupon. In their second email, after I rejected their initial offer, they bumped it up to a 50% refund along with the return address.
  • The return took an incredibly long time to receive. I had to follow up with them numerous times and eventually threatened to file a claim with PayPal. They told me in multiple emails that they notified the returns department and that I needed to wait a few days.

Do I Recommend This Shop?

Based on my experience, they are a legitimate company. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame, successfully completed a return, and received a full refund.

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

Firstly, while the swimwear/clothing is ‘acceptable’ quality, I would rather spend twice the amount for twice the quality. I have specific needs when it comes to bathing suit bottoms fitting (I often run into bottoms pinching and creating a double-butt effect), and I found that every single one of these was somewhat ill-fitting. Secondly, the material compositions listed on the product pages do not exactly match the care labels on the swimsuits. While they are just slight differences such as 2% vs. 4%, this makes me question the company’s honesty. Lastly, the return took a really long time and required numerous follow-ups from me. They kept telling me to wait and that they had re-notified the appropriate people. Absolutely frustrating, and a return should NOT take so long.

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 a SeaFancy review, please consider sharing and commenting (via Reddit) below. Have a great day!
