    Gwynnie Bee is my indulgence. It gives me the opportunity to wear blouses and pants for work that make me feel beautiful. I have been able to try many different styles, and love when they are available in the shop and I can buy them at an affordable price. I have purchased some wonderful blouses and pants that I would not have been able to purchase at full price.

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

  • Money well spent

    I've been a member of Gwynnie Bee since 2014. After weeks of seeing the Facebook ads, I figured I'd take a chance on this strange, new service. The prices were great, the variety was awesome, and the customer service was top notch. It's been 5 years and I'm just as excited to receive a box as I was when I joined. The prices have gone up since 2014, but it's an investment that is well worth the money. With new styles being added every few days, I know I'll always look great and be ready for any occasion. I've recommended GB to all my friends and the compliments are always abounding when I'm in one of the garments. As a plus sized woman, it's an incredible feeling to know that you have a never-ending closet of clothing that looks great and feels great!

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

  • Cute items but takes forever

    • Germantown, MD,

    I always receive cute things from Gwynnie Bee and I get a lot of compliments at work. The frustrating part of this service is that it takes them so terribly long after returning items to send you new ones. When there is something wrong with a garment (happens frequently), they’ll give you a free item upgrade that lasts 7 days. Depending on your schedule and their ability to get clothes out to you it really isn’t a perk.

    I recently returned a box about a week ago. Only yesterday did my next box begin processing. I am considering canceling the service. I have had items in my closet since the fall that have not been sent to me. I don’t think they exist anymore.

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

  • I love Gwynnie!

    • Canaan, CT,

    I'm so glad Gwynnie started carrying all sizes! I live rurally and have found that Gwynnie is a great way to have new clothes all the time but not waste money internet shopping. I loveeee Gwynnie. Customer service is AWESOME - if there is an issue they always take care of it and compensate, whether it’s a glitch in the app, an issue with my account or something not being sent out fast enough. I have have been using Gwynnie since June and can’t imagine going back! Also, this has been a reasonable middle ground with my BF where I can spend a certain amount of money on clothing and send it back versus just pile clothing that I don’t wear in my closet...he loves it too!

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

  • Great concept but delivery of clothes needs improvement

    • Fredericksburg, VA,
    • Mar 15, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I've been a Gwynnie Bee customer for at least 4 years now. Obviously there are some pros if I've been with them this long.

    I love the fact that I can get clothes to wear them once or twice and send them back without having to commit to a purchase. I also really like that I'm between sizes, so it makes it easy to go up and down in sizes. They also have a wide variety of styles and sizes to pick from.

    You are sent at least one postage paid return bag with your box of clothes, sometimes two depending on how many pieces you have. This is so convenient. You can just pop the bag into your mailbox or any mailbox for pickup.

    Gwynnie Bee has a really easy to use Mobile App so you can add items to your closet, you can start the return process through the app and scan the return bag they send. This allows them to start your next order before they receive it.

    So why am I only rating them a 3?

    Well, here are the cons:

    Sometimes the pieces of clothing arrive and they have been very worn. Kind of stretched out or there is a lot of pilling on the material. Sometimes there is an odor to them. I'm not sure if it's from the previous wearer or the cleaning agent. Maybe it's the material.

    It seems here lately that it's taking a long time for me to get my clothes. From the time I scan my bag to the time I get my clothes has been on average 7 to 10 days lately. There have been other times I get my clothes in as little as 4 or 5. It's really disappointing when you wait 7 days or so to get your clothes and you have to send them back immediately because they either don't fit or you just don't like them.

    Gwynnie Bee suggests you keep at least 25 to 30 items in your closet, I have at least 40 in mine at all times. The thing I'm noticing is that I'm only getting items I recently closeted, and things I closeted months ago are still just sitting there.

    I keep my subscription going because I'm grandfathered into a price from years ago, so it's worth it to me as a working woman to always have a variety of things I can wear. I wear dresses now and I hardly ever wore them before because I never wanted to spend the money to wear something only once or twice.

    I continue to recommend Gwynnie Bee to people who compliment me on my clothes and ask where I got them. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely worth a try. You are not going to love every piece you get. But it allows you to go outside your comfort zone. With the wide range of brands, not every size fits the same, but Gwynnie Bee has charts to help you decide what to pick. If they could nail down getting the clothes out quicker, and maybe step up quality control a bit more, I would rate a 5.

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

  • Convenient but pricey

    • Virginia,
    • Mar 15, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Gwynnie Bee has provided me with the convenience of having a varied dress wardrobe as a pastor's wife on Sundays. I always find it difficult to find one thing to wear on Sunday morning until Gwynnie Bee offered its services. I now am able to wake up and just know with confidence what to wear. While most things fit to my liking, there are some cons. I wish there were more benefits to longtime members like a discount on subscription. I also only get 2 pieces for a very hefty almost $75 per month fee. I wish it could be a little lower or I could get the "grandfathered" price. Gwynnie Bee also takes sometimes too long to send an item I really want and it ends up going out of season. Overall, Gwynnie Bee has been good to me. I just wish the price was lower.

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

    I've been a Gwynnie Bee subscriber for about 2 years, and I absolutely love it. I've bought several of the pieces I've rented, plus other items from the Gwynnie Bee shop. I like the number and variety of items to chose from. I also like being able to rent items outside my comfort zone, so I don't have to commit to buying something that I might not like. The subscription price is ok - not great, but not too expensive, IMO.

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

  • Borderline annoying

    • Germantown, MD,
    • Mar 15, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I am constantly frustrated by the quality and lack of selection. They demand you have 12 items in your closet at one time, but unless you wear unflattering dresses, there is little to choose from. I have tried so hard to find 12 items, but there is nothing.

    For a company that specializes in plus sizes, it's incredible to me how poor their styling/buying must be.

    For example, try to find a long cardigan in a range of colors. Doesn't exist. Try to find a long tunic that you'd wear to work. Nope.

    They need to aggressively start catering to the working plus size girl. One that doesn't want her rear showing at work or doesn't want to wear some ridiculous floral dress.

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

    Sometimes items are spot on and other times I'm not sure who would wear the clothing minus a circus clown. There have been outfits that I've loved, but they smell terrible, like they were worn at a greasy pizza place or a smoky bar. I would really like to see a "swatch" picture - a close of up the fabric to give me a better idea of what something is before I closet it.

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

    I love Gwynnie Bee. The selection is great and the actual service itself is amazing. I have friends who are always interested in where I get my cute dresses/clothes, and no other clothing service has the flexibility and quality of Gwynnie Bee. It changed my life. Thank you!

  • Love this service

    • Buffalo, NY,
    • Mar 13, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been a member of Gwynnie Bee for 3+ years and have enjoyed almost every step of the process. I joined after I had my first child because I was larger than my regular pre-pregnancy clothes. I didn't want to purchase a whole new wardrobe because I intended to lose the baby weight. I work in a professional setting so looking good is important to my corporate image. Even once my regular clothes fit again, I enjoyed the flexibility and lack of laundry that the service provided. I especially love that the brands FIT well and the sizing options make sense. Very rarely do I get items that don't fit. So I decided to stay with Gwynnie Bee.

    When I got pregnant with my second child, it was great to be able to rent real clothes in bigger sizes that "grew" with me instead of buying more maternity clothes. I was able to remain fashionable instead of frumpy which is really helpful when the hormones are messing with your self-image. The only criticism I have is that I could not "pause" my membership when I was on maternity leave. I would like to have paused it for the 3 months I spent on my couch with my newborn in pajamas. I was basically continuing to pay for a service I wasn't using because I didn't want to lose my "lock-in" price. There are other times, like when money is tight, or I am on vacation that I would like to pause the membership for a few weeks instead of outright canceling. I think this would be a valuable option to offer your customers and it would help customer retention. Even Facebook lets you take a break with temporary deactivation. Most subscriptions let you "skip a month" or pause your membership.

    Once I returned to work after my second c, I definitely felt my professionalism and confidence return by having more wardrobe options. I also loved the addition of the "returned favorites" option. There are items I returned that I ended up purchasing later when they dropped in price. It was great to be able to buy items I already knew I loved to add as staples to my wardrobe. Often at great prices that the original manufacturer doesn't offer. I would suggest you allow people to X out or remove the returned favorites they know they won't purchase. I don't like seeing the same dresses appear in that section when I know I don't want to buy them. I'd rather be able to remove them so you can suggest something else I would love instead.

    Overall, I love this service and find it very valuable. I regularly recommend it to coworkers and friends who admire my outfits. I think you have a great company and would love to provide more feedback if requested.

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