How to see other products with many sales
These stamps are very useful as they allow us to discover clothes that are triumphing for their good quality, design or style. At the moment, Shein does not allow you to filter your search by these labels but we give you some alternatives.
Filter your search
If you know what product you want to buy but you don’t know what the trends are or which Shein garments have the best quality, we recommend you to filter your search.
Just use Shein’s search engine by entering keywords (for example: “sweater”, “jacket”, “shirt”…) and then select to sort by “Most popular”.
This way you can find those garments that have more sales, which also tend to have better ratings and many comments, among which you can find photos of other buyers to check the quality.
If you want to be up to date with Shein’s best-selling clothes, we recommend you to access the trends section, which you can access from your computer (in the menu bar at the top) and also from Shein’s mobile app (by accessing the “Categories” > “Trends” section).
Here you can find the latest items that have been added to Shein’s catalog and also the clothes that are currently selling the most.
“Gals”: outfits from other shoppers
In the section of the website called “SHEINgals” we can also find fashion garments. This is where other shoppers upload their outfits with Shein garments. It is very useful to catch the latest trends in fashion, and they usually show clothes with a lot of sales and allow you to see if the clothes fit your style.
Just log in to your app and look for the “Gals” section. We recommend you to go exploring among the different sections as we can see outfits based on different styles, find the recommendations of influencers or also the latest exclusive collections of the platform.
Without a doubt, we also recommend you to take a look at Shein’s homepage. Although many times we enter directly to look for something, on the home page we can find many interesting things: the new items in the catalog, a suggestion of clothes based on our tastes, the latest promotions or discounts, and also the latest trends in fashion.
