In this section of the SSUNU review, I will go over general brand information, their policies, and more. Keep reading to get the details!

Who is SSUNU? According to their About page, the brand was created in 2015 by a small team of young entrepreneurs seeking to make a difference in the fashion industry. With factories in South Carolina producing clothing for major brands and celebrities, the company realized that there was an opportunity to provide high-quality clothing directly to customers, at a fraction of the usual price. By setting up an unbiased platform for independent designers, Ssunu allows customers to bypass the usual chain of middlemen, while still having access to the latest designs in the market. In the last ten years, the team behind Ssunu has made it their mission to bring smiles to customers by providing quality products, as well as providing small businesses and independent designers with a wider audience to show their products.

Brand FAQs

What is SSUNU’s seller name, and do they run any other online stores?  The seller name shown on my PayPal account is Dress Fashion. Dress Fashion also operates Valanio, NNESI, Ryabe and Orwyy (click on the linked brands to see my review). There may be others, and I will continue to update as I make purchases.

What is SSUNU’s legal business name? According to their Contact page, their legal business name is listed XBP International LTD.
Read my note here (in the table of contents, click Business Practice Qs and see #6) for further explanation on legal business names and how they could differ from the store’s name, and seller name.

What does SSUNU sell & do they carry plus sizes?  They list categories for women’s tops, dresses, swimwear, sweaters, cardigans, two-piece sets, and more. They do not appear to sell any bottoms (outside of the sets). They do not appear to carry plus sizes at this time.

Where is SSUNU located & what is their business address? According to their Contact page, they are located in the United Kingdom. Their business address is – XBP International LTD, 145-157 St. John Street, London, England, England, EC1V 4PW. This business address was also used by a company called Hoseill.
Read my note here (in the table of contents, click Business Practice Qs and see #2) for further explanation on the use of virtual addresses.

Where is SSUNU’s clothing made & where does their clothing ship from? According to their product pages, all of their clothing is made in South Carolina (United States). However, both items in my order do not state on their care labels where they were made. My package came from a warehouse in Jamaica, New York (United States).
❌ Read my note here (in the table of contents, click Shipping Qs and see #1) for further explanation on the different locations that come into play when you place an order.

How long has SSUNU been in business? Their business began in 2015. However, according to a domain age-checking tool, their website was created in 2021.

Is SSUNU a sustainable brand? According to their About page, they have positioned themselves as a socially responsible market player. The company pays special attention to the welfare of employees in the fashion industry and partners only with brands that offer fair treatment and salaries. In addition, Ssunu donates part of its revenue to charities in order to address the issue of extreme poverty in various parts of the world. In the clothing creation process, they support the use of recyclable materials to promote sustainable fashion. However, due to their complete lack of transparency regarding their alleged sustainability efforts, they likely are greenwashing as a sales tactic. This leads me to believe that they are a fast fashion company.

❌ Read my note here (in the table of contents, click Business Practice Qs and see #4) for further explanation on sketchy sustainability claims.

❌ On 6/20, I checked the tracking number and shipping history for valanio.com (same seller as SSUNU). A message (shown in the image below) displayed on USPS’s site saying that counterfeit postage was used. In short, senders that use counterfeit postage on packages have not paid for the delivery and typically use invalid return addresses. Read this Counterfeit Postage FAQ by USPS for more information.

The tank top has a simple and modest round neckline and is sleeveless. The uneven hem gives it a bohemian flair, and it can be easily paired with jeans or cutoffs for a laid-back and stylish look.

  • Cost: $32.99

  • Fit: It fits a bit small.
  • Value: This top is overpriced. I would pay $20 at the most. 

Click on the thumbnails below to see the whole image.


  • The wavy hem is unique and looks nice.
  • The pattern is beautiful and is dyed into the thread (not screen printed or anything surface).
  • Nice wide set straps and generally flattering.


  • The material is very thin.
  • The upper portion is a little bit tighter than I would like.

  • The top is shapeless and generally unflattering.

Q&A – My Overall Experience

In this section of the SSUNU review, I will answer both general and specific questions regarding the company, my order, and my experience as a customer. Keep reading for more!

📦 Order Related

  1. Did the order arrive on time and as expected? Yes, the package arrived within the estimated time frame, and the items arrived as expected.
  2. Did they let you know when the items shipped and did they provide a tracking number? No, I never received an email letting me know the items shipped.
  3. What is the general quality of the items ordered? Based on my order, I would rate the quality 2.5 out of 5 stars. The quality of SSUNU’s clothing is below average.
  4. How accurate is the sizing based on the items ordered? Based on my order, the clothing runs slightly small.
  5. Were there any issues or discrepancies with the payment? No, my PayPal was charged the expected amount.
  6. Does the clothing have brand tags and sufficient care label information? No, neither item has Ssunu tags and both care labels do not state where they were made.

📧 Support & Return Related

  1. Was the return request approved? Yes, it was approved in 1 day and they provided the return address.
  2. Was customer service helpful and did they offer any return/refund alternatives?
    Yes, support was helpful and very responsive. They did offer that I keep the items for a partial refund.
  3. What country is the return address in and what was the return cost? The return address that they provided to me is in the United States. They ended up giving me a partial refund in order to keep the items. This would have been close to the same cost of paying for shipping.
  4. Was the refund successful? Yes, I received the agreed-upon refund amount on April 4th.
  5. Did support reach out about any issues with the order? No, there were no issues with the order.

🌐 Company & Site Related

  1. Are they sustainable? I do not believe that they are sustainable despite claiming to be.
  2. Are their prices fair and are they affordable? Based on my order, I think they charge too much for the quality. Affordability-wise, the clothing is overall slightly expensive. The average cost of a top (based on their best-selling list) is around $39.
  3. Is there anything important to know regarding any of their policies? Their return policy states that they only accept returns if there is a quality issue. I had no problem returning/getting a refund for the items due to preference, however, I did encounter push-back with NNESI (they are the same seller as SSUNU). Double-check the return policy with customer service before purchasing.
  4. Do they offer free shipping and other discounts? Yes, they offer free shipping for over $79. They do have coupons available.

Final Verdict

In this section of the SSUNU review, I will answer whether this company is legitimate and if I recommend that others shop here. Keep reading for more! Note: If my purchased items arrive, I am able to return the items successfully, and I receive a refund in the agreed-upon amount, I am deeming the company legitimate. However, if any criminal activity is discovered, I will deem the entire company (and all stores under that seller) fraudulent.

Is SSUNU Legit or a Scam?

This company is a SCAM. I discovered that they use counterfeit postage by checking the tracking log for valanio.com (the seller is Dress Fashion; they also operate SSUNU). The use of counterfeit postage is a federal crime. DO NOT SHOP HERE or at any of their other stores. These are the other stores that Dress Fashion runs (that I am aware of):

  • valanio.com
  • nnesi.com
  • orwyy.com
  • ryabe.com

Poll – Vote!

Question: If I opened a women’s clothing store on reviewmycloset.com, would you be interested in shopping?

I’m considering partnering with a U.S.-based wholesaler and opening a women’s clothing shop. Each item would be hand-selected, and personally reviewed by me (I would leave an honest and helpful review on every single product page). Items that don’t get my seal of approval would never get listed. Honesty and transparency are non-negotiables – absolutely no misleading information or price gouging. This shop would likely only be available for U.S.-based shoppers (unless there is international interest).
