It looks like the free trial is still going on! Sweet! Just a quick look at the latest items I checked out. Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental subscription service for sizes 10-32. The clothes are plus sized from Medium to 5X but most of them are available in sizes XL or 1X to 3X. If the other clothing boxes don’t work for you, this is your box, especially because it’s totally free for 30 days right now.

How Gwynnie Bee works: Check out the Gwynnie Bee items, pick the clothes you’re interested in, put them in your Gwynnie Bee closet, and they’ll send you your items (it works just like old school Netflix!). When you’re done, return them in the mailer bag and get new ones. You can also purchase the clothing in your closet. You can filter all the selections by style, size, color, etc. I particularly love the Style Advisor – it will tell you clothing you may be interested in “closeting.”  You don’t get things in order – your pieces are shipped to you in order of availability so you have new clothes to try right away.

When you visit Gwynnie Bee they actually have real member profiles and you can see how many items of clothes these ladies were able to exchange on different plans and if it might be the right thing for you to try out.

Everything I received in my last box. All the clothes are shipped in a box wrapped in tissue, with a return mailer (or two) enclosed. You wear and return!

Lucie Lu Shift Dress in Flower Market – Super pretty and perfect for this season. I loved the color and how it was on a blue-gray background instead of being totally floral. I thought that kept this looking fresh.

Lima Asymmetrical Cowl Neck Sweater in Pink – Whoops! Update those closets to get rid of the sweaters. This was such a pretty raspberry color, but I didn’t wear it because it wasn’t cold enough.

Lima Poncho in Black & Cream – I got tons of compliments on this one. Some of the reviews said it was big and blanket like (it is, because that’s what it’s supposed to be like).  I had it in the smallest size available and it was still more than full of blanket-y goodness.  This was an easy way to make my basic black uniform look totally different. I didn’t really accessorize that day but I should have pawed through my closet!

I would have bought this one, but I think it was around $55 to buy. Because the pattern is so distinctive, I thought that was too much, but I loved wearing it! It was also in like new condition.

All the garments are inspected and I’ve never really had an issue with anything I’ve received in terms of condition. It’s also worth a mention that the clothes are higher end clothes, so they all have better construction and fabric than what you might normally purchase for yourself.

A couple things to remember (besides free laundry!): you can mark your shipment as outgoing so your items ship out faster, you can purchase items that you love at huge discounts, and remember to use the amazing community at Gwynnie Bee to help you select the best items for your body and the right size for that garment.

Currently when you sign up for Gwynnie Bee you can get your first month for FREE, (no coupon code needed, just use the link) which is an awesome way to just try it out and see if you love it. The plans are as follows:

It seems to me that everyone uses this subscription in all sorts of ways – to find new clothes to buy, to wear once and return (that’s me), or to keep longer. Everyone is different and it’s pretty much up to you!
