I recently received a 30-day free trial of Gwynnie Bee. I hadn’t heard of it before, but a bunch of my girlfriends were signing up with a promotion they Gwynnie Bee was doing with the Junior Leagues. Gwynnie Bee is a online women’s clothing subscription service for sizes 10-32. Basically you go online and select items you like, pick your size and add them to your closet. They recommend adding 25 items to your closet to ensure you get an item you love. You can even prioritize your favorites.
There are six different plans you can choose from –
- 1 item at a time $49/month
- 2 items at a time $69/month
- 3 items at a time $95/month
- 5 items at a time $139/month
- 7 items at a time $179/month
- 10 items at a time $199/month
A few key feature worth mentioning;
- Unlimited FREE USPS priority shipping both ways.
- Unlimited exchanges – there are postage-paid envelopes included in every box.
- Free dry cleaning. You just return it and they clean it!
- If you fall in love with an item, you can keep it. There is a price to buy when you receive an item.
So let’s dive in to my first box. it arrived rather quickly; three days after selecting my items. The first item I selected was this Rico top in Tutti Frutti by Rachel Antonoff. I love the off the shoulder look and don’t have anything like it in my closet! I thought that it would be super cute with some boyfriend jeans.
Unfortunately, this items was entirely too big. I ordered an XL, but could have gone with a medium (maybe even a small?) It is adorable though. The fabric is thin, but perfect for hot summer days. The tag said dry clean only, but considering Gwynnie Bee takes care of the dry cleaning, it isn’t a deal breaker.
The second item in my box was this Julian Taylor Scuba Dress in Dark Floral. I wasn’t sure what to expect because I don’t care for polyester dresses in the Summer. They don’t breathe, especially in the heat and humidity.
This dress like the top, was WAY too big. I ordered a 14w and could have used 2 to 3 sizes smaller. The print was cute and it was nice quality, but it would have been pretty thick to wear right now. I did love the cut out in the back though.
The third item in my box was this Angelina dress in Blue Scotty Houndstooth by Cherry Velvet.
Out of all of the items in my box, this was the only that semi fit. Or so I thought. I wore it for a few hours, but then when I went to take pictures, I saw that it didn’t really fit. It was too large in the chest and all of the extra fabric wasn’t flattering. I was trying to make it work when it really didn’t. The print was really cute and I loved the crisscross straps on the back because they are so unique. It was also dry clean which is always a bummer.
So in all my first Gywnnie Bee box was a bust. With the 30 day free trial, there is still some time to decide if I want to continue. However, right now, it’s not looking good.
