Member for 4 years

By Jill G., Verified Reviewer

I’ve been a member of GB for 4 years and I love so many things about this service. I am able to have a rotating wardrobe of fashionable outfits without spending a fortune. The garments are usually high quality and the sizing is accurate.

Recently I’ve noticed it takes longer for packages to be checked in once I send them back. I’m not sure if this is a USPS issue or an internal issue, but it delays my next shipment.

Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Game changer! The Netflix of apparel!

By A. M. T., Seattle, WA, Verified Reviewer

Gwynnie Bee has been such a game changer for me. It provides me access to a great variety of fresh seasonal trends without the sting to my pocketbook. It's the thrill of shopping without the bill of shopping. I love browsing the new arrivals or circling back to see everything that a brand I have newly discovered, through Gwynnie Bee, has to offer. I look forward to every box that hits my porch. I have bought at home items and items from the Gwynnie Bee shop and boutique that are now some of my favorites.

The website and experience are superior to all similar offerings out there now. Some services want to choose for you - no thanks! I know me best. Some will ask you to ship all items back at the same time, slowing down access to fresh choices. I call Gwynnie Bee "the Netflix of Apparel" in that they have the web interface and shipping cycle down to an art. I am constantly recommending Gwynnie Bee to anyone who will listen. I would also encourage brands to get on board. It's a wonderful way to showcase your offering to an audience who may not be familiar. Keep up the great work Gwynnie Bee!

I love Gwynnie Bee

By Tanya A., Minnesota, Verified Reviewer

If you familiarize yourself with how the process works, and make sure you understand how to use the system, Gwynnie Bee can be an amazing service. I love that I can wear any of the items as many times as I want and don't have to buy them unless I want to. I am super tempted to up the amount of items I get because the more you get, the better value it is. I would say two things would make the service better - offer some higher end or trendier clothing (maybe there is a $2 item up charge or something) and speed up turn around shipping times. Even if I notify, scan, and ship same day it sometimes takes nearly a week to receive new items.

Tips to users - KEEP YOUR CLOSET UPDATED and notify when you are returning items. It makes all the difference. Also, check out clearance often, I have gotten some really killer deals.

Fun, handy, but expensive

By Judy L., Texas, Verified Reviewer

I have been with GB for almost a year now and have very mixed feelings about it. I am planning to cancel before my next renewal.

I have worn many of the items received, and enjoyed them. And I have tried on a lot of styles that I might not have seen in a store. It is fun to get the box and see what I got and even more fun when it fits and I put an outfit together!

Everything I have received has been in great condition and I've gotten some real bargains buying returned items.

But $80 a month is more than I should really spend for the convenience of getting a couple of new pieces to wear for a few days.

Months where I get something dressy, I have to hold on to it until there is a fitting occasion. That means I likely can't get something else that month, so I either don't wear it, or I paid $40 to wear it once.

When I don't like either piece in the box, it feels like I wasted a lot of money just to try two things on.

Part of why it hasn't worked for me is that I can only return things by going to the post office. Sometimes I put it in my car and forget to drop it off - that's my problem, but it often means I only get one box that month.

I also am bothered by all the waste. I get 1-2 boxes a month and they just get recycled (or pile up in my room, oops!). The bag is easy, but I would rather use the box for returns than using creating even more waste with the bag.

Last, check what you have to do to cancel. It really bothers me when companies make it so easy to sign up but hard to cancel. You have to call. And the cancellation takes effect the day you call. So you either lose access you've paid for, or time your call just right to get your full month but not get charged another month.

Overall, I think it's a very interesting service. If the price was a bit lower I would probably continue.

I would recommend to friends that have more money than time!

Gwynnie Bee

By Sabrina G., Brownsburg, IN, Verified Reviewer

GB is a great way to keep your wardrobe fresh. I love getting new items each time! I have used it during my time of weight change and it has helped to keep me in clothes that fit and are on trend. I love the variety of items too.

Best service

By Lorrie A., Roseville, MI, Verified Reviewer

Gwynnie Bee allows me to always be fashionable without spending a ton of money or filling my closet too full. It saves me both time and money. I always have a stylish outfit without shopping or dry cleaning.

In love

By Tara K., Omaha, NE, Verified Reviewer

I saw an ad for Gwynnie Bee on Facebook in 2014 and decided to take advantage of the free trial month. When I received my first couple of boxes, I was kind of disappointed. I was unfamiliar with the brands and the size charts were not entirely accurate. I also felt the shipping was slow, so did not continue my subscription.

I am so glad I decided to give it another try! I have been renting consistently since early 2015 and I love it! It does take a while to learn the brands and how they fit. There are certain brands that run large, etc. I have chosen to rent a good amount of items at one time, so it fits my life and I always have something in my closet. If shipping is delayed for some reason, it is not a big deal.

I pretty much exclusively wear dresses and Gwynnie Bee has great variety. There are items appropriate for work and for play. My only wish is that I would be able to designate when I would like to receive a particular item, such as for a special event. I often receive items I have prioritized, but there have been some prioritized items I have never received.

When I first started with Gwynnie Bee, they exclusively carried plus-size clothing. As I continue on my weight loss journey, I was thrilled when GB expanded their sizing to average size clothing as well. There have only been a couple of times in which the size I needed fell between the two and GB did not carry that bridge size.

I hope to start a family within the next year or so and wish GB would offer maternity clothing also. Overall, I love this service and have recommended it to several people. The customer service representatives are quick to respond and are helpful. Customer satisfaction is important to this company and I respect that.

It changed my life

By Meshel L., Madison, WI, Verified Reviewer

Renting clothes from Gwynnie Bee changed my life. I had gotten into a rut of wearing fairly dark colors, the colors I thought looked best on me: black, burgundy, purple, green, brown. I thought I dressed pretty well; quirky and put together.

I kept seeing ads pop up for GB, so I finally decided to give it a try. I added dresses to my closet and excitedly waited for my first box to arrive. It contained 3 black dresses, but there were polka dots and flowers. Nothing outside my comfort zone.

Then something happened. I started adding dresses in colors I'd never considered before. Pink! Blue! And it was fun. Fashion should be fun. And I discovered these new colors worked on me and made me smile.

Also, something else special happened. I started a Facebook community for The Girls of GB and I met so many other women who were kind and caring. We formed a little family that went beyond the clothes.

I've been a member of GB for 6 years. My experience hasn't been perfect, but nothing ever is. The good far outweighs the negative. And I stand by my statement that Gwynnie Bee really has changed my life for the better.

Long-time customer generally happy with service

By Abigail K., Queens, NY, Verified Reviewer

I've been with Gwynnie for about 4 years (I think?) and have enjoyed the service. I like that it's a rental program with an option to buy rather than a box where I pick what to buy and send the rest back. I've kept a dress for 3 months and returned it at the end of a season; other items are one and done. I don't keep much in my closet, around 20-25 items tops (I'm on a 5-item at a time plan) because I periodically curate what I've got, get rid of out-of-season items, etc. It helps to ensure that I don't get too many things that I send back without wearing. That said, it does happen sometimes. I find that returning with the app (where I can scan the return mail bar code) helps me get my next box faster.

Online website issues

By Kim P., Greensboro, NC, Verified Reviewer

Not good. I am still having problems seeing anything online. This has been going since April 4th. I don't understand why they can't just reset my whole account? They should not charge me for this service since I cannot make any changes. I cannot add anything or remove items from my closet. I am very upset that this is still going on. It is now April 19th.

Great service, but in app account management needs work

By Sam T., Arkansas, Verified Reviewer

I’ve loved my Gwynnie Bee subscription for three years now. And I love that they expanded their size range to be inclusive of smaller sizes. I had been sad that I would be sized out as I lost weight, but with the expanded size range I can still use this great service to try new things and experiment with my look. However, the account management experience leaves something to be desired. I think it’s ludicrous that I have to make a phone call to suspend or cancel my account. This is literally the only subscription service I use that I am unable to cancel, suspend, skip months, etc. on my own within the app. It feels like my internet service provider is trying to milk more money from me. Makes for a very unpleasant customer experience.

Surprising addiction

By Krista T., Michigan, Verified Reviewer

I originally signed up for Gwynnie Bee to find a dress for a family wedding. I planned to discontinue after the free trial, but I loved the items I received. I've been with them for 7 months now. I have found the clothes to be much more stylish, comfortable and higher quality than my local stores. I have to travel for an hour to find stores with any style and then the selection is so sparse. Gwynnie Bee home delivery has allowed me to shop from home, something I found I really enjoy. I appreciate the different size models in the clothing reviews, this gives me a better idea of how it may look on me. My only complaint is the monthly price of the membership, but I will be honest, I'm cheap. The deals they give on the clothing makes it worthwhile. I have looked at other online clothing services but I love the control Gwynnie Bee gives you in choosing what is sent to your home. I couldn't have it any other way. I do and I have recommended Gwynnie Bee.

Gwynnie Bee is my self-care

By Quiana M., Chicago, IL, Verified Reviewer

Everyone says you should do at least one thing every month to take care of yourself and to be honest, Gwynnie Bee has been that thing for me since 2014.

I literally cannot imagine my life without this membership. Initially, I joined to have a few more work options a month for fancy receptions and the occasional outing with my girlfriends. I've also never been a huge fan of laundry, so the idea that I wear and return without additional work was compelling.

Then I discovered that USPS will pick up the return bags at my door and I was completely sold. Since 2014, I have taken a job that requires near constant travel and Gwynnie Bee is my point of sanity in a crazy world. I return home from trips to new boxes of clothes ready to go and ship off the worn clothes before I board my next flight.

The selection of clothing and brands continues to expand in all the right ways and is a great reminder that plus size clothes don't have to be drab and bulky. They can be fitted, colorful, print and so much more. My sense of style has broadened as I use GB to take risks and try things I would never imagine trying on, let alone buying, in a store. While you can't tell them exactly what you want in your next box, the adding of the priority feature has been helpful in making sure I do get a cocktail dress before my next reception or that I get a nice pair of jeans before my next date.

And the compliments! So many folks have never seen me in the same outfit more than once. Obviously, I'm fancy, right? I have actually purchased clothes through GB as well and that experience is great. Deep discounts and good quality; what more is there to ask for?

I love GB, get the max number of items per month, and have no immediate plans to end my relationship with them. I wish they still did the GB tours with members where we could try on things and have a little shoot. That was such an amazing experience. If there is room for improvement, it is with the tops selection. They could stand to have some trendier options. There should also absolutely be a date night clothing category. The weekend wear is okay but it skews towards daytime farmers market visits.

A must have and affordable service.

By Nychelle S., New York, Verified Reviewer

I am a loyal fan of Gwynnie Bee since 2014.

I am a plus size customer who has been on a weight loss journey. I like that I can just resize my online wardrobe as I lose weight. I became ill in 2018 and gained a large amount of weight back, thankfully I was able to just resize my wardrobe up.

I love the idea of trying new styles with no commitment. Thanks to the service I fell in love with styles I would have never tried on in stores.

Shipping to and from my home has been reliable. The customer service has been wonderful. Once or twice my clothing return was lost in the mail. I made Gwynnie Bee aware of the situation by email and it was handled very satisfactorily. I have even been personally called by agents to make sure I was enjoying the service and using the service to its full potential.

Summer is coming! I like to order extra items add-ons to enhance my wardrobe and totally live up summer.

Slowing down

By Melissa H., Delavan, WI, Verified Reviewer

I’ve had Gwynnie Bee off and on (mostly on) for about 3 years and feel like the service is starting to decline. It is taking much longer for the next shipment to be sent. To the point that I don’t know how much longer I will keep the service. I used to be able to get two shipments a week and now I am lucky if I get one. This is not for a lack of items in my closet because I have over 600 (granted some of them may no longer be available, I wish they would just go away if that was the case or let you know to see if you want to try a different size). For example, this week I "returned" my items on Monday and it is now Friday and they still haven’t sent the next shipment. I see great value in the service as I am losing weight and it minimizes the amount of new clothes I have to buy, but if I am only getting one shipment a week, if that, I don’t know how much longer I can keep the service.

Changed my life

By Aileen C., New York, NY, Verified Reviewer

Gwynnie Bee has changed my life. I have been with them for almost five years. I have been promoted at work three times during this time because I always dressed like the job I wanted. I have been with GB during most of its growth and GB did hit snags with slow delivery issues at times of transition and holidays. However, I was always compensated and my feedback was taken seriously. I would recommend to keep track of your returns using the USPS app. This service is perfect for folks who change sizes often and love to explore new fashion. Also, it would be great to be able to choose your next shipments. You are more likely to get new collection arrivals shipped all the time and must keep adding clothes to your closet, I have over 500 items in my closet.

Great concept but no longer matches my style

By Martha C., Pennsylvania, Verified Reviewer

I have been using this service for over 4 years. I find that it allows me to try new brands, keep my wardrobe fresh and most importantly stops me from impulse buys.

I have noticed the past year that I am adding less to my closet and keeping clothes less often. I feel that the overall style has shifted out of my preference. I still found two amazing pieces this year that I love, but on the other hand, I sent back many boxes without wearing the item. The service is great, just no longer for me.

I would highly suggest to anyone to do the trial month. This is a wonderful service.

Ups and downs

By Adrianne B., Augusta, GA, Verified Reviewer

It's a great concept, kind of reminds me of customizing my Pandora stations. Very convenient. It also has me wearing things that I wouldn't normally buy, so it has expanded my wardrobe choices even when I go shopping. Sometimes I just wonder if it is worth the money.

Love Gwynnie Bee!

By Samantha B., Columbus, OH, Verified Reviewer

I love the overall experience with Gwynnie Bee. The app and website are easy to use. The clothing selection is huge! So many different styles and designers to choose from - and I can always find clothing in my size. The shipping process is fast which means I don’t have to wait long for new items. I’m always getting compliments at work on my outfits thanks to this service.

Best decision!

By Judith V., Pembroke Pines, FL, Verified Reviewer

On a plane I first saw your ad. I was totally fascinated by the concept. As soon as I was home I looked it up and thought I should give it a try. I started with just 2 outfits then went on to 3, 4 and now 5. It was one of the best decisions I have made. I love that I can easily pick the style and read the review so I can have a realistic expectation of what I will be getting. I like how suggestions are made and nearly almost every fit is perfect. I love the variety of styles. I love the convenience of just putting it back in a bag and not needing to be careful with how to care for it. Do you know how many expensive and beautiful pieces I have purchased at full retail price to ruin it because I overlooked how to care for it? And I love that the pieces I select to keep are discounted and further discounted when I use my reward points. It feels like Christmas every week, excited to open my next new box. You make the whole process so convenient and so easy. I am very satisfied, exceeding my expectation by far. The only thing I would change is that I wish I could select the exact outfit that I would get next so I can better plan for events. I wish it could be on a list choosing what piece to expect next...although I do admit sometimes the surprise is fun too. You have proven I can count on you to be truly reliable, you can count on me for being a lifelong client!

New clothes every week!

By Amy M., Rochester, NY, Verified Reviewer

Having a Gwynnie Bee subscription has been life changing for me! It is a never-ending supply of clothes that are fashionable and fit me so well. Both things I hadn’t experience much in plus sizes before Gwynnie Bee!

I have new clothes to wear every week and have gained so much confidence in this process. I have also purchased quite a few of the items I absolutely love from my boxes and from the outlet at amazing prices, most under $30! I have to do less laundry and have learned about so many brands.

The customer service is outstanding. I am very sensitive to perfumes and have had to send back a number of items that smelled of perfume. Each time they have been very responsive and usually upgrade my subscription for a period of time as an apology. I

love that but would love it even more if they just fixed this quality control issue.

I think the ideal box size is three items at a time, but I generally can’t afford that. If money was no object I would do a three or four items at a time subscription!

It was great while it lasted

By Kimberly H., Verified Reviewer

I have had this for about four years and at the beginning it was great. I seemed to have so many options. The last year or so all of the styles seem to be the same. Not much of a variety.

Once was good, now is EH

By Karen W., Jacksonville, FL, Verified Reviewer

The price is not supportive of the service and product any longer. Turn is slow and choices are lacking. While it is good to find new products some brands are overpriced for quality. I have been a member off and on for five years and currently considering canceling.

Meh, it's ok.

By Noela T., Virginia, Verified Reviewer

The idea of renting clothes, always having something new and different, never having laundry - is awesome...however...there are many annoying things that need fixing. Like, I should be able to mark an item returned without having to jump through the hoops of rating it. I should be able to mark an item as seasonal so I am not sent a sweater dress in July. I should be able to pick what I want in my size (not sold out, not only available in smaller sizes). I should not get items that smell so heavily of chemicals (like, do I really want that fabric touching my skin?). I should not get harassing phone call or emails saying I am over my plan amount...

I got in on the ground floor, so what I pay is very reasonable - would I sign up at today's prices? Nope.

Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pretty good overall

By Jennifer B., Dover, DE, Verified Reviewer

I have enjoyed Gwynnie Bee. I’ve been a member for about three years and have built my closet and used the service for special functions and work occasions. I would like to see lower prices on some of the garments - generally that is why I don’t keep things - they’re nice, but out of my price range to keep. Also, I would like to see more eco-friendly packaging besides the cardboard boxes and plastic bags. I’ve used Rent the Runway for formal events and I like their fabric tote bag method. I’d love to see GB do something similar.

I decided to give them a look and went to the website where apparently I inadvertently signed up! However, I never ordered/received anything. Now I find out they have been charging my card for 9 months. While it's my fault for not noticing before 9 months, I still feel like this was done intentionally and is definitely an unsavory business practice. They did offer a partial refund and a sort of apology. JUST BEWARE!

Great service!

By Amy P., Apex, NC, Verified Reviewer

I have been loving my Gwynnie Bee subscription. Not only do I get to wear fun, fashionable clothes to work and social outings, my laundry load has lightened each week. I do not have to worry about dry cleaning. Shipping is simple and fast. The customer service is also excellent and a no-hassle experience. I also love that they incentivize loyalty by offering points, rewards, discounts, and surprise upgrades. I am so glad this service exists!
