Everything5Pounds – Too good to be true?
When you hear a name like Everything5Pounds, your mind does a double take, but is too good to be true?
Saving money is my favourite thing to do, so I knew I had to check it out!
I’d heard about this company a few times from various people.
So, I finally decided to order a couple of things before I started my new job.
It’s like the first day of school, I always like to have new clothes for work!
HOW IT WORKS
The reason that everything is £5 is that it’s all ex-Highstreet stock with the labels taken off.
So you don’t know which brand it is from.
This makes it enticing to bargain hunters and people on a budget as you get pocket-friendly clothes at a good price
Plus, they seem to have a sale on every now and then so items go down to £2.50 each as well.
WHAT I ORDERED
I placed my order for Everything5Pounds on Saturday and received my items on Thursday.
I bought 4 items in total, a white cream top, white printed crepe dress and 2 wrap dresses in blue and purple in a Size 18.
The more items you add, the more shipping increases as it’s sent via Royal Mail First Class. In total, I spent £25.85 with my total items being £20 and the extra £5.85 was for shipping.
The items I ordered were:
The fit of the clothes was a bit hit and miss. I tried everything on and ended up returning the two wrap dresses in teal and purple as they made me look huge.
I kept the Mono Swing Belt Dress and the white lace top.
To return items, you package the items back up, and if you can, return them back in the original packaging.
As it was quite a bulky item, I used Hermes to return.
Everything5Pounds said I would not get my shipping costs back.
I still went ahead and sent them back.
I was very surprised when they returned to me the cost of shipping.
WOULD I BUY AGAIN?
Unsure. Whilst I understand the concept of the brand is for budget buys, the fact of the matter is, the quality of the clothes is a bit hit and miss as is the sizing especially if you’re over a Size 16.
Secondly, the shipping going up every time you add an item and the fact that you may not be reimbursed if you send items back has put me off.
I’ll keep an eye on it, but I can’t see myself actively buying from this brand again, although if you do buy, make sure to sign up to Quidco before you do to get cashback on your order.
