Gwynnie Bee Clothing Rental Service for Women 

I have had so much fun trying out Stitch Fix to find new items to add to my wardrobe without having to leave my home during this busy season of life that I wanted to give Gwynnie Bee a try after learning about it from several of you readers.  This online service is a bit different in that Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental service, although you do have the option to purchase the items if you like at a discount, too, or you can just rent them and return when you are finished.  They offer unlimited clothing options for women in all sizes (XS – 3XL) in dresses, tops, bottoms and jackets/outerwear. {When they first started, they just offered styles in plus-size, but they now carry all the sizes.}

The idea is for you to think of Gwynnie Bee as a closet full of your favorite clothes that you can “raid” at any time to get more variety in your wardrobe, without having to pay for all the items. If you decide that you love something you try, you can then purchase it at a discount. Shipping is always free. It’s a great way to add some new styles & items to your wardrobe for a limited time if you have a few special events on the horizon or just want to spice things up in your wardrobe for work, date nights, etc.

I am going to test this out this April so I can share with all of you, but first I wanted to share a little bit of how it works if you are interested in trying it out too.

Free 1 Month Trial for Gwynnie Bee:

There is no styling fee at all for Gwynnie Bee so you can test it out totally for free with a 1 month trial! There is always free shipping & unlimited returns.  After that, if you decide that you do not want to continue, there is no contract, no fees, etc. You just would go into your account & cancel your subscription after you returned your items.

How it Works:

Gwynnie Bee how it works

 

  1. Sign up for a free one month trial from Gwynnie Bee – you will need to enter your credit card information or your Paypal information (this is because if you decide to keep the items, then they will charge you for that discounted item). And if you decide to continue the subscription service, you won’t have to enter your information again
  2. Fill out the style profile. They will ask you a few very basic questions before you sign up for your free trial & that is just to get a feel for your sizing (by asking your size in select brands). But once you submit the info for your free trial, then it will ask you more style questions – with pictures to choose between of your favorite styles so they can narrow down more of what you like.
  3. Fill your virtual closet — this is where it is different from a site like Stitch Fix in that you get to pick what items you want them to send you. They will give you selections they think you might like based on your style profile, but you have the choice to add them to your “closet”.  The virtual closet is where you add at least 6 items that you would like them to send you to “rent” for a special occasion, for a holiday or just to try on to add to your collection if you decide to keep it.
  4. Receive 2 items by mail within a few days — the free 1 month trial plan is for you to receive 2 clothing items by mail. So you can try them on & see what you think! If you like them both, you can keep them as long as you like.  Or wear them for a day for an event or work & then return one or both of them & they will send you new items. With the fast priority shipping, you could get 2 items every week, depending on how fast you return your new items.
  5. When you return your items, notify them online & they will send out 2 more items from your “Virtual closet”. You can add to your virtual closet at any time, so you don’t have to have the minimum 6 items, you can add as many as you’d like.
  6. After your 1 month trial, you will be charged for a monthly subscription for the next month, depending on how many items you want to have sent to you at a time. The 2 items per shipment rate is $69 — but remember that is not just 2 items if you send them back each week. You could get 2 items every week, so that could be up to 8 items/month that you could wear to spice up your wardrobe for $69. Or you could try 1 item every shipment for $49.  The shipping is fast with the priority shipping. And if you notify them after you send it back while it’s being mailed, they can send out a new box to you asap. {FYI – If you select paypal as your payment option, you will get a paypal notice of the amount in your email, which I did – but that is just letting you know that it will be charged after the 1 month trial is over – however you can cancel at any time & you won’t be charged that amount.}

Gwynnie Bee Brands for Clothing Rental

 Here’s what’s included with the Gwynnie Bee Subscription Service:

  • Keep an item as long as you want – you can wear it just once for a special event or holiday (like Mother’s Day) or keep it for awhile if you want to use it for a few months – like a new outfit for springtime maybe? {If you are in the process of losing weight & don’t want to pay for new items in a size that you may not stay in, then this is a good option to “rent” clothes for a little while & then keep getting new sizes as you lose weight!}
  • Always get free shipping using USPS priority shipping 
  • Unlimited exchanges with postage paid envelopes (you don’t need to worry about standing in line at the post office to pay for postage)
  • Free dry-cleaning – you don’t need to worry about cleaning it
  • Keep it at a discount – if you decide you want to keep it, then you will get a discount off the retail price (I do not know what those prices are like yet, I will fill you in after I try it out)

Tips for Using Gwynnie Bee:

  • If you like the idea of a personal stylist helping to choose the clothes (which is what I love about Stitch Fix), they do offer a personal styling service for free – all you have to do is email them at [email protected]  to set up a time to chat with a personal stylist for clothing recommendations from the clothes on their website.
  • Add more than the minimum 5 items to your “virtual” closet – I recommend spending some time going thru the clothes & add as many clothes as you are interested in to your virtual closet. This just will save you time in the future, so you can send items back fast & request your new box to arrive quickly. You can also choose if you just want pants/jeans, tops and/or dresses if there is a particular type of clothing that you are really wanting for a little while. You can change your virtual closet at any time. Gwynnie Bee recommends you add at least 25 items to your closet
  • Prioritize your favorite items in your “Virtual closet” – you can add as many items in your “virtual closet” as you’d like & then you select your favorites for them to focus on first when they send them to you
  • Cut down shipping time and maximize the number of items you can try – go online & let them know as soon as you return items. They will then start prepping your next box right away to get it out to you fast by that priority shipping
