Quality of Petal &Pup Vs Shein
Aside from pricing we also have to look at quality, we all want products that will actually last. Everyone knows that when shopping for fast fashion brands like Shein this might not be likely. Due to the brand being fast fashion, it really depends on the products you are buying, and it’s best to check reviews. From personal experience and researching customer experience, most products are of good quality.

Another important aspect when comparing both companies is sizing, and if there’s a range of sizes. Shein does a great job at this and even has a plus-size section with some great clothes for plus-size women. Also, they go up to size XL in many of their regular products, but with the plus-size section, it goes up to 3XL. When it comes to Petal & Pup, they don’t have a plus-size section and only go up to size XL.
