Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Box

And great news for any UK readers – they just expanded their shipping to the UK!

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Betsey Set

Betsey Johnson Luscious Lite Cami Set – Value $59

I love that Wantable sends Betsey Johnson intimates! This set is super cute and very soft!

 Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Muk Luks

Muk Luks Aloe Socks – Value $10

I can always use more slipper socks, and I’m a fan of the Muk Luks brand, so these were another win for me. (I love that they have a band to keep them in place!)

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - Feb 2014 Leggings

Look by M Grey Leggings – Value $22

This brand is new to me, but I always need new leggings, and these look like a great basic pair.

Verdict: This box has a value of just over $90. I’m very happy with the value for the $36 cost, and I love the brands they use! Did you get your February Wantable Intimates box yet? What do you think of this subscription?

  1. Just ordered my box I can’t wait!

  2. I just got my first box and am already wearing what was inside. C:

    I got the Knot Front All Over Lace Chemise in Plum, which is what I’m wearing now and it’s super comfortable. I’m a pretty busty girl with a thin frame so it’s not like the chemise covers and supports everything, but it looks really good on and it’s very comfortable. It’s definitely one of those effortless but sexy couch potato pieces. I also got the Betsey Johnson Houndstooth shorts, which I’m not surprised about because I’ve seen them in almost every single review. I like them anyways. I also got ankle socks in apricot, which are very soft.

    The only thing that was a buzzkill were the Hidden Beauty Hipsters in Nile Blue. They are SO CUTE but SO SMALL. I always wear a size Small in underwear but these fit like an XXS. We’re talking quad-booty, ladies. I sent an email and I hope they’ll get back to me with a size exchange, because I honestly love them as well but would just like a bigger size. 🙂

    Total value: $82. Holy. Cow. <3

    • UPDATE**

      Wantable got back to me the next day and shipped a replacement panty in a larger size for me to try, and will make adjustments to the Icy Hot brand sizing based on the measurements I sent them so this issue will be avoided in the future. 🙂 Excellent customer service.

      • Yay! Always happy to hear about great customer service from subscription companies! 🙂

  3. I have been wanting this one for a while, and since I am losing weight, figured it would be a good way to pick up some nice basic pieces. I tried looking online for reviews from plus size women, and couldn’t find any. They size to a 2XL which is a 20. In my box I got the Rhonda Sheer bra, which was a no go, a pair of brown leggings (ewww, brown leggings?), and a slim fit tee shirt. I was disappointed, because it seemed like other boxes I saw for February were cute or had some sexy element, and I got brown leggings. Plus, I put tanks as a dislike, because I knew they would not fit, so why would they send a slim fit tee shirt? A cami (love), or a cami topped night shirt would have been a better option. So next month I am hoping for some nice slippers and something cute. Otherwise, I might wait until I reach a more mainstream size.

  4. Received my Wantable Intimates box yesterday. This is my third month, and I am still waiting to get something that I love. The first month was a mess, got items that were on my dislike list as well as one of the items not being what was supposed to be included and not even the right size. Last month was okay, but nothing blew me away. This month I got a Rhonda Shear shelf tank (nude) that I think will be a good staple item. The other item that I will probably make use of is a Wantable bandeau bra, but it is the exact same item, just different color, that I have already gotten. The other two items I am unlikely to use. The first is a set of Icy Hot invisible straps, and I don’t think I own any bras with removable straps to be able to use them. The item I am the most disappointed with though is the Betsey Johnson sleep shorts in houndstooth. They run WAY small and I will never wear them. I looked them up online and found that Nordstrom specifically tells people to order a size up because they run small. I wish that Wantable was aware of how items run and would ship sizes accordingly. Contacted them to see if I can’t return that item and will see.

  5. *Betsey Johnson

  6. Love my first intimate box! I received a bra bandeau that is grey and black horizontal stripes by Wantables. Sleeping shorts by Betsey Jphnson. Semi slip/bra shapewear, and 3 hearts for expanding bra straps. Love my first box!

  7. My latest box was totally different from yours, but equally good. I made some adjustments to my preferences and Wantable did a great job choosing things I love.

  8. I loved my box this month. I got the the same Muk Luk slipper socks you did, Betsy Johnson sleeper shorts, some pretty lace-trimmed panties and a pair of dark blue tights. I’ll wear everything, although the sleeper shorts might have to wait until Spring.

  9. My daughter is home wearing her leggings that are very warm and super nice quality! She loves her intimates box and so does my daughter in law!

  10. What are your settings fa to get a cute box.????

  11. As usual, I LOVED my box! I got the same Betsey Johnson sleep set, another cute pair of thigh highs (the Kix’ies are fast becoming my go to hosiery because they are comfortable, well made, and stay up the last being the most important attribute), a fabulous piece of shapewear (thigh length shorts with a thin lace waist detail; stayed in place, no waist rolling when I sit down and super smoothing!), AND a pair of fuzzy socks. I can’t get enough of them. Hubby says my feet are hooves since I wear through socks like a maniac (he’s such a sweet talker, isn’t he?). So far I haven’t worn through any of my Wantables box socks and that’s impressive enough for me to stay subbed forever, lol!

    • Sounds like you got a great box! I’m so impressed with Wantable Intimates 🙂

  12. I am so jealous of your box. I have subscribed for two months, sent the first month’s box back and will return this one as well. First, I just got my box today like a full two weeks after most people seemed to have received theirs. Then I got none of the brands that were listed for this month. I was so excited for muk luk boot socks or aloe socks or the adorable slips I’ve been seeing. Nope. I got the houndstooth Betsy Johnson sleep shorts everyone got months ago. It’s February, I don’t want sleep shorts. Then I got the on gossamer striped boy shorts, fine but not wow. I got some navy blue tights that are too thin and too blue and then, the worst, some white cotton knee high socks. I don’t know why wantable apparently hates me but I’m definitely canceling.

    • I still don’t have mine, but they’re much after about shipping than all r other monthly subs, by a mile. Maybe you could try speaking with someone about your preferences. I’ve done it a few times and they’ve included a specific item I requested (from spoilers) twice. They have great CS so it might be worth a shot.

      • I believe it has to do with when you ordered your box to begin with. I signed up on the 5th of the month, and mine ships around the 5th every month – so if you signed up later in the month, it would ship later in the month. I could be wrong, but that’s the impression I got from the site!

        • Correct. They send your box on the same day of the month that you originally signed up. Mine ships on te 28th each month.

    • You’re not the only one…I have gotten three boxes, dec jan and feb and returned dec and jan and will be returning feb as well. My feb box was awful. I got a Steve Madden item I sent back last month as I got the matching item the previous month which I didn’t like either as I hated the color….a romper thing in pink that I simply hate and it’s more suited for summer weather, not winter, a pair of thongs that say med/large that can’t be any larger than XS as I wear a medium in every pair of panties I own and these are tiny…..and my last item is the mukluk socks. I like them but will not keep the box for them when I hate the two big items…..the value of my box is 108$, huge high value but I hate the stuff so to me it’s not worth it at all…. I see reviews every month of boxes I would have been thrilled with and every month my box is a complete dud. All three months they have sent me the same purple Steve Madden stuff…..literally the exact same piece jan/feb…. I don’t get the cute stuff, the slips, etc that I see on reviews….it frustrates me….

  13. I love what you get in these boxes! I think I need to tweak my settings. Would you mind posting a screenshot of your “loves, likes, dislikes” associated with your wantables boxes? I think it helps to know which categories people select.

    Also, I sent you an email regarding the swaps section… I know your busy, but just wanted to make sure it was received. Can you please let me know if I need to resend it? Thanks for everything!!

    • I
      The safest way to set your preferences is to eliminate categories you just don’t want to see in a given month. If I’m full up on socks, I dislike them. If I’m targeting loungewear (like I did when ordering a second box last month) I set everything to dislike except loungewear. I wouldn’t set things to “like” unless you’d be happy seeing them in your next box. The only way to ensure you don’t get something is to dislike it. And if you see something in a spoiler, call and ask that it be included in your box. I’ve had success with that twice (when I wanted the Betsy Johnson sleep shorts; I could care less that it’s winter since I don’t sleep outside at night, lol!)

  14. I LOVE that Cami Set!! I had to skip this month – just no room in the budget 🙁 But with my tax refund on it’s way I will be able to get it next month!!

  15. This is definitely my new favorite subscription! I got the same aloe socks you got, but everything else was different. I got a Rhonda Shear soft Ah Bra, which apparently gets rave reviews. After getting one soft bra, though, I’m going to dislike them, since I really only need one or two because I don’t plan on wearing it out of the house. I also got Rhonda Shear soft lounge pants, which are so unbelievably soft, but are really thin so I may save them for spring when it’s not so cold. And I got a pair of black lace panties with a little heart charm on the front, which was my least favorite item since I think it looks a little cheap, but I guess it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day.

    • Those panties are oddly comfortable, even for a die hard thong girl like me. I guess I didn’t see them as cheap looking but more cute/playful. But I was pleasantly surprised how well they fit.

      • Actually, I did wear them and find them more comfortable than I expected.

    • Are those the Q-T Intimates bikinis? Mine have so much thick excess elastic in the crotch that they’re uncomfortable.

      • Yep, QT Intimates. I’ve gotten one other QT Intimates pair through Wantable too and didn’t much care for those either.

  16. I am always so jealous of what you get. My boxes are never even close to being as good.
