About Ursime

Is Ursime sustainable?

No, they likely are not. According to their Sustainability page, they are allegedly committed to developing sustainable items, focusing on recyclable materials, eco-friendly design, and packaging. They also claim to actively be involved in recycling programs, the forming of ethical partnerships, and advocating for human rights and security. Their long-term program, “More Trees, More Green,” has allegedly donated and helped plant 1532 trees in the last 6 months. Since they don’t substantiate any of these sustainability claims, I am inclined to think they are green-washing.

I checked OneTreePlanted‘s list of partnerships (Ursime claims to partner with/donate to them), and unless I missed it, Ursime isn’t listed.

Ursime Clothing Review and Order Details

I ordered the below items on 11/30/2023 to my address in North Carolina (United States). I paid a total of $151.77 to Qiwu Trading Co., Ltd. via PayPal. The charge appears on my credit card statement as “PAYPAL *QIWUTRAW7RY”. View Order Confirmation 

1) Slouchy High-Rise Wide-Leg Jeans

Brand Label: Unknown

Color/Size/Cost: Blue / L / $33.99

Country: Made in China

Material: Different materials are listed in two places:

  • Product page- ‘Cotton/Polyester’
  • Care label– 70% Cotton / 23% Polyester / 5% Viscose / 2% Spandex
ursime jeans comparison

Expectation: They are VERY different from what I was expecting in terms of overall appearance. These look like two completely different pairs of jeans. The color, wash, fit, etc.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is bad but wearable. 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 half a size too big. I think sizing down would be a bit too small though. View my Body Measurements for size reference. Please note that I am wearing 2.25 in/5.7 cm platform sandals.

Keep or Return: I would return these Ursime jeans.

While I like the urban style and fit, they are not made well. The material feels very thin and rough, the back seam is crooked, and the white splotches on the back are HIDEOUSLY placed. It looks like I sat on a park bench with wet white paint.

2) Retro Three-Quarter-Sleeve Golden Velvet Maxi Dress

Brand Label: Unknown

Color/Size/Cost: Claret / M / $44.99

Country: Unknown

Material: The product page states ‘Velvet’.

ursime dress comparison

Expectation: It is what I was expecting, for the most part, in terms of overall appearance. It seems a bit longer and the color is a bit more of a purple-red in the product image.

Quality: In my opinion, the quality is bad but wearable. 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 one size too big. View my Body Measurements for size reference.

Keep or Return: I would return this Ursime dress.

While it feels smooth and comfy, it is cheaply made. The material is very thin, lots of sewing issues including misaligned seams and loose threads, and anytime you take your hands in and out of the pockets, it disfigures the dress and you need to fix it. This is more of a design flaw; this kind of cheap and lightweight material shouldn’t have these pockets.

Customer Service Experience

General Responsiveness

  • I had to ask for the return address THREE times before they gave it to me. 

Shipment Details

  • Regarding the delayed/canceled items, I canceled them 22 days after placing the order since I didn’t receive a shipment email and didn’t want to continue waiting.

Return Details

  • They offered me the following return options:
    • Standard return (pay for shipping and mail to the provided return address)
    • Partial refund of $26.79 (40% of the return value) + keep the items
    • Discount code of $36 + keep the items
  • Before giving me the return address, they requested that I send them photos of the size tags (if due to size issues), or defects (if due to quality issues). I sent them images of the size tags.

Refund Details

  • The refund took a LONG time, and I had to follow up several times. Here is how the conversation went:

    ME (January 20th): “Where is the rest of my refund? For the items I cancelled?” (I mailed and sent the return tracking info on 1/9)

    Support (January 20th): “Thank you for your email. We will refund the money to the method you used to pay. We are refunding you 66.98 USD. For PayPal refund, please allow up to 7 to 15 business days to be completed.”

    ME (February 14th): “Where is the rest of my refund? I STILL haven’t seen it. This is taking a very long time.”

    Support (February 17th): “I’m very sorry for the inconvenience caused! Our finance department was on holiday earlier. We have notified the appropriate personnel to expedite the refund. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be patient for some more time 1-3 days.”

    I received the refund the next day. Ridiculous.

Is Ursime Legit or a Scam?

Similar Sites & Analysis

Reverse Image Search:

Based on my findings, there are MANY other small boutiques/online shops/marketplaces that sell many of the same items as Ursime.

Possible reasons for this include the use of the same suppliers, the use of stolen images, the same owner operating multiple stores, the same owner selling on multiple platforms, etc.

With that being said, I found several of the same products on AliExpress, Shein, etc. for much cheaper. For example, I found the below shirt for $36.99 on Ursime, and $5.33 on Aliexpress. Based on the reverse image search results, I believe these are likely identical or near-identical items offered at vastly different prices (as opposed to one being a cheap-quality version of the other).

I highly recommend doing Reverse Image Searches when shopping online for price and quality checking purposes. You might be surprised at what you find!

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, they are a legitimate shop. I paid for my items, received them within the estimated time frame (except for the delayed/canceled items), successfully completed a return, and received a full refund.

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

Here are my 5 reasons why:

  1. They talk a lot about sustainability; I think it is all bogus. They specifically mention working with OneTreePlanted. I checked the organization’s list of partners, and I did not see listed.
  2. The clothing is bad quality and the material compositions listed on their product pages don’t match the care labels on the garments.
  3. It took over 3 weeks for PART of my order to arrive, which is a long time.
  4. Some of my items were delayed. After 22 days of no shipment emails, I canceled them. 
  5. Based on my reverse image searches, I am convinced I can find the same items on other sites for MUCH cheaper.

Overall, I had a supbar experience. If I were you, I would skip this one.
