Ashleigh Masterson’s jaw dropped when she opened a ShowPo parcel to find a Shein label on one item.

Lu commented: "Hey Ashleigh and everyone, ShowPo CEO here.

"We've checked the rest of the belts and no Shein stock but we are investigating how this could've happened."

One penned: “I’ve sworn off ShowPo because the quality is so poor and they jack up the prices.”
