June 2015 Gwynnie Bee Review + Free Trial Subscription

Gwynnie Bee provided me with a complimentary subscription for my review. Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

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 subscription boxes don’t work for you because of size, this is your box, especially because it’s totally free for 30 days. It’s such a great idea!

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

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.

So, Jen’s been out of town (she’s taking over Gwynnie Bee reviews shortly), and her clothes came to me while she was gone. I decided that I wanted a laundry free weekend and totally used them for myself. Mind you – she’s a foot taller than me and I wouldn’t have necessarily selected these for myself! But you can feel free to experiment with whatever style.

TART COLLECTIONS Chloe Dress In Wave Lines – This dress didn’t work for me for public consumption – it was really low cut! I liked the style and the fabric though, and as always, it was in excellent condition. This would’ve been great if I had a larger chestular area like Jen (alas, I do not!)

IGIGI Dominique Dress In Emerald Escape – Though I was hoping to find some weekend stuff in Jen’s box, this was pretty and fun, though not a color I’d normally wear (she would look great in it and I’m going to make her recloset it!). It was comfy but not my favorite dress ever.

IGIGI Kloey Top In Ruby Rose – Perfect weekend wear! This was super cute and I enjoyed it! Great fit and super flattering.

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,
  • use the amazing community at Gwynnie Bee to help you select the best items for your body and the right size for that garment.
  • 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.

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:

1 – $35 per month
2 – $59 per month
3 – $79 per month
5 – $99 per month
7 – $129 per month
10 – $159 per month

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!
