Due to its cheap clothing items and endless complements, Shein has long since become a favorite for many.
But one person who will no longer shop at the China-based fast fashion retailer is TikTok user Callie (@justmecallie).
According to the 21-year-old from Los Angeles, USA, it’s all about a trip to the airport that made her reconsider her shopping habits.
Urging other Shein fans to stay away from the brand’s underwear, Callie took to TikTok to explain what happened.
“I went through security. I wore my Shein underwear because it’s so cheap.
“It’s about $1 (80p) each – so why not?”
But this is where her journey to the plane almost ended, as security guards wouldn’t let her past the body scanner, which was constantly beeping.
After being pulled aside, she continued in her video, Callie was told it was her panties and bra that triggered the device.
“I don’t know what’s in those underwear — but it’s no good.”
Looking back on her purchases, the fashion lover said: “You probably shouldn’t be wearing it at all. Because the fact that it went off is a bit worrying.”
In an attempt to enlighten Callie, who was taken aback by the unexpected situation, social media users then explained what might have triggered it.
One TikTok fan said, “Your clothes contain more lead than regular clothes.”

Another agreed, adding: “Her clothes have a lot of lead marks, I don’t know why they weren’t closed after this discovery.”
Someone else thought, “I wouldn’t even buy Shein underwear because it feels dangerous for some reason.”
Meanwhile, a quarter claimed they’ve never had any problems with their products, writing: “I wore Shein underwear to the airport once and nothing went wrong.”
It’s not just lingerie that’s better off buying elsewhere – fakes are notorious for being gigantic and so big you could easily fly off.
According to TikTok user Nadia (@gymratchic), who is believed to be from the US, her sister was checking out what’s new on the brand’s website when she came across a slew of fakes.
Although it’s not known how much they were, it must have been a good deal since the beauty enthusiast ordered a package.
But when they finally received the package, it’s safe to say they were in for a shock — the fake hair was so long and dramatic that Nadia and her sister went into hysterics.
“Omg, I didn’t expect them to be that big,” the nurse exclaimed, horrified.
After Nadia went viral on TikTok — the video has racked up a whopping 2.4 million views — Nadia uploaded a follow-up of her sister trying out the fakes.
“Oh my god you know what, this is really scary,” the duo giggled.
The thick and dark lashes were so massive that they completely covered Nadia’s sister’s eyelids and viewers were just as amazed by the product.
Seeing her sheer size, many were convinced that the young woman would be able to take off and fly anywhere.
Another Beauty fan had a similar writing experience; ”Girls, I bought these and my mom called them cow lashes.”
Another chuckled: “One thing about them Shein Whips, they gon PASH.”
Another added: “Shein always exaggerates sumn [something].”
“THAT’S A WIG,” commented one viewer.
