Despairing of your post-kids wardrobe, but too pressed for time to do anything about it? Can’t face the crowds for a shopping spree on a rare, child-free afternoon? Well thanks to the magic of the internet, these days you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to get your fashion fix, (and it doesn’t get more mama-friendly than that!) To help all our fellow shopaholics, we’ve rounded up the top 35 fashion websites that offer free (or nearly free!) shipping to Hong Kong – happy clicking, mamas!
You know it… you love it… so why aren’t you buying more?!? It only takes about 3 days for whatever you order to arrive so go ahead and indulge! And if for some reason you don’t know about all the awesome features that Shopbop has to offer you can read about them here!

Looking to get stopped on the street for your style? Then you should check out Romwe! Prices are cheap, choices are plentiful, and yup… shipping is free! We love the poufy party dresses and over abundance of rhinestones and spikes!
How it works: 1. You browse the selections from local designers. 2. You preorder whatever it is you love. 3. Once the designers have received enough preorders they will then be able to produce those items. The trick is making sure that the preorder limit is met by a certain date. This means you need to spread the word and have friends order goodies as well as soon as possible. The site will show you how close the item is to production. You won’t be charged until the item has been successfully funded and produced. This is a great site for supporting the local design scene and discovering new talent.
