You're familiar with Gwynnie Bee
, aren't you? Known affectionately as the Netflix of plus-size fashion
, Gwynnie Bee is a subscription service that allows women sizes 10-32 to rent clothes for unlimited free shipping and exchanges for a flat monthly fee. In an attempt to save money, I put my subscription on hold for a few months. But, as I flipped through their most recent "New Arrivals
" I knew I had to sign up again.
"Why?" you might ask? Here are FIVE reasons!
1. Duh - new clothes!
One of the best things about Gwynnie Bee is I get the chance to wear new clothes on a regular basis without adding excess clutter to my home. Y'all have seen my closet. (If you haven't, click here
.) I don't need to add anything else to my closet - I can't
add anything else to my closet. Sooo, Gwynnie Bee allows me to "add" to my wardrobe without having to make more space in my closet.
2. It saves me money.
I know what you're thinking: How can spending money on a monthly service actually save you money?
Well, as someone who used to shop every single weekend, getting new clothes from Gwynnie Bee allows me to scratch my shopping itch without emptying my bank account. Because the cost ranges from $35 a month (one garment at a time) to $79 a month (three garments at a time), I'm able to enjoy a new round of clothes at a literal fraction of the cost of actually buying new clothes.
3. I get to try new things!
Besides the thrill of trying new clothes, I get to try clothes by designers that I've never worn before. As a great majority of plus-size clothes are only available through online shops, this is a BIG deal. I also get to test out colors, patterns, and styles that fall outside of my comfort zone. I can do all of this without the commitment of actually making a purchase and running the risk of having to return it if I don't like it. And speaking of returns....
4. Easy returns!
So, Gwynnie Bee makes it easy peasy to return items. They give you an addressed envelope so you can just plop your item right in the mail when you're done with it! And - what's even better - is that you don't have to clean the clothes before making the return. Yup! Just dump your funky clothes in the pre-addressed bag, toss it in the mail, and you're done!
5. Find something you really love? BUY IT!
So, even though Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental
service, it gives you the option to BUY the items that you really like at a fraction of the original cost!
