Does anyone else get adverts when they come onto this site. I have one from IRISRUBY. One of their tops i really like. Just wondering if anyone has ever ordered from them and if sizes are true to fit.

If I fancy anything from these ads, I always google 'reviews for whatever'.

I haven’t but from comments I have read here and elsewhere I would counsel caution - or even go so far as to say do not touch with a barge pole.
The quality and fit are said to be bad, the clothes are all made in China and any sort of refund is impossible to obtain.

Yes, I've heard the same as MawB2. They look nice, but I believe the quality isn't so good from what some folks say and some people have received items that don't resemble the picture at all, so I'd be cautious.

You've probably done your home work now. I hope you searched on Face book. A site that has banned me for my scathing comments on these shysters.
As my friends and family know it's one of my missions in life to protect people from these rogue sites.
I've spent hours and hours researching these people.
It's no wonder the CEO of these companies ( they are all owned by the same man) is the richest man in China 😡

When I’m on the Health forum I keep getting the same graphic advert for bad breath, which frankly puts me off my breakfast! I’ve repeatedly reported it as ‘Not interested, Seen multiple times etc’ to no avail.

I foolishly succumbed to buying from one of these ads earlier in the year. The item was meant to be a thick knitted shawl type scarf. In reality it was a knitted pattern printed on to shiny polyester type fabric. It was so awful, I could only laugh! A friend tried to return something, but that seemed to be a minefield, so I just put my mistake down to experience. I steer clear now, even though the ads make the items look really interesting!

You obviously missed my scathing posts, then.😥
Still, it could have been worse. People have been ripped off for hundreds of pounds.
