I’m not sure if you guys have noticed there hasn’t been a new Stitch Fix review on the blog lately. I won’t lie, I do miss getting that lovely box in the mail each month. But it’s ok, because I have a new best friend. And I am so ready to brag about it to you guys.
I’ve been in love with Stitch Fix, you can check out all my old reviews here and see some of the sweet things I’ve gotten. I still would highly recommend it as a service for anyone who needs to smarten up their wardrobe. Buy my own continual complaint was the face that I topped out their size offerings.
This gave me no wiggle room…literally. And some of the items I loved most had to go back because of fit issues. I started searching for something else, something where the top size didn’t end with 14. Which, by the way, is the most common size for American women.
That’s when I found Gwynnie Bee. Honestly, the free 30 day trial was the biggest influencer in giving it a try. I figured even if it sucked I wouldn’t be out anything so why not.
Well, I tried it. And I LOVED IT!
It was so nice to pull things out of the box and have them just fit. Anyone who wears a size 14 or larger knows the struggle, the clothing companies who think that if they just take a size 2 shirt/dress and just make it wider it will fit.
With Gwynnie Bee they cover sizes 10-32, and because of that they have clothes that are actually designed to work with curves. Clothes that are super cute and stylish and fit. It’s pretty awesome. Recently they even worked with Melissa McCarthy, who I’ve adored since she was on Gilmore Girls, on her own clothing line.
How it works.
Sign up, fill up your closet with items you life, and wait for them to send your items. You choose how many items at a time you want when you sign up and that’s how many you can have out at a time. When you send an item back. Or buy one. They’ll send you another one from your closet.
You can wear the item as much as you want before you send it back, or you can send it back right away. You also have the option to buy your item. I generally wait till there is a good sale on the items I’ve got at home. So far I’ve gotten some really good deals thanks to my patience.
The prices have been so reasonable for the clothes themselves. I am assuming that is due to the fact that you pay your monthly membership price, which brings the average price up close to what I was paying for Stitch Fix. But I still feel like I’m getting a better deal since I can get so many items in the month that I’ll wear once or twice but not love enough to keep.
There are no shipping costs in either direction, and the clothing items themselves are quite reasonably priced. I got a peplum top for about $13 dollars, and this dress I wore kissing a moose (yes that’s a thing) was about $14. I love those prices. So yes, the monthly subscription fee is a little rough, but overall it’s more than worth it.
The first month free is a great option too for testing out Gwynnie Bee without breaking the bank. Just make sure you fill up your closet with at least 8 items otherwise they won’t send your items. This isn’t listed anywhere on the site that I could find, but we learned it the hard way when Meaghan signed up.
So if you’re looking for a great option to change up that wardrobe try a free month of Gwynnie Bee, it’s 100% and totally worth your time. They’ve got a lot of great options that are cute and fun, the sizes and styles are designed with curves in mind, and they’re shipping time is really fast. Have you ever tried Gwynnie Bee or any other clothing subscription service?
