Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - July

Wantable Intimates is one of the subscriptions from Wantable, and it is probably my favorite box they offer. Like all Wantable subscriptions, you can heavily customize what they send you by filling out your preferences – and you still get to be surprised! Wantable kindkly sent me this box to review.

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - July 2014 Info

When you first sign up for any Wantable subscription you take a style quiz and you can get very specific about the items you want and don’t want. (This is the list of my loves, likes and dislikes from my invoice).

FYI – You have to select at least 2 categories of items you like or love. I decided just to go with loungewear and soft bras.

Rene Rofe High Low Short PJ Set – Value $24

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - July 2014 Shorts

This set is my favorite item in the box. I was worried that they high-low top would result in a crop top situation, but it’s a very subtle hem line difference. It’s a great summer colors too!

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - July 2014 Floral

Kathy Ireland Plum Chemise – Value $28

I think this print is adorable, but I must admit I was a little surprised to see Kathy Ireland as a brand featured in this box. I was thinking that her line is carried in KMART, but it’s not there anymore, and I actually can’t find it anywhere online (besides Zulily flash sales).  My unwarranted brand judgement aside, this chemise is very soft and well made, my only issue is that it seems to run a little large. I’m going to put it through the laundry in hopes to shrink it!

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review - July 2014 Bra

Pucker Up! Kristi Bra – Value $18

I guess a few items surprised me this month – because I didn’t realize Wantable sends out underwire cup bras – up until now it has just been soft bras. I ended up liking this one, but I’m going to go back to my profile to see if there are now more specific bra preference questions.

Verdict: I received about $70 worth of items in this month’s box. It’s on the lower end in terms of Wantable box values, but assuming the Kathy Ireland chemise shrinks – then I’m 3 for 3 in successful items!

What did you get from Wantable Intimates this month?

  1. Does anyone know where I can buy Pucker Up! bras in stores? I just bought one this weekend at a discount store and I love it, but I can’t find them anywhere!

  2. Did anyone get the leopard print sexy lingerie w/thong? It’s a full soft corset with garter hooks. My invoice looked like a tshirt and shorts, but this was definitely not. It’s super cute and sexy. I was just wondering if anyone else got it in their box?

  3. I received my box today and need to return it. I misjudged the sizing on the shapewear and there is no way I am going to fit into it. I’m waiting to hear back if I can return the shapewear only or the whole box. I always changed my profile to dislike for shapewear since the sizing wasn’t what I expected it to be.

    • I need to reread before posting. I “already” changed my profile, not “always”. Two different meanings.

  4. Loved that box, especially the bra! Like many of the other commenters here, I prefer underwire bras and don’t wear soft bras at all. I liked the chemise and the set, too!

  5. I reached out to Wantable at the end of last week because it seemed to be taking an unusual amount of time for my box to ship (despite getting the email that my box was being put together and would ship in 1-3 days. I got this reply:

    Thanks for reaching out! I’m so sorry for the delay in shipping your box. We currently do not have enough items to fill your box. We should have it ready for you early next week, you’ll receive a confirmation email when it has shipped 🙂 Thank you for being patient, we truly appreicate it! If you have any further questions or concerns, I’m more than happy to help!

    Has this happened to anyone else? I’m not too happy with Wantable these days (recent intimates and accessories have been misses for me) and this will probably be my last box. I’m not feeling confident that I’m going to get anything nice as it seems they’ve run out of everything…

    • I’m wondering what’s up with mine too! On July 14, they said they were preparing my box and that it would probably ship within 1-3 days, but I still haven’t gotten a shipment notification. Meanwhile, my Wantable Makeup box has already arrived, and I got the notification on that one about the same day. Maybe I should e-mail Wantable, too?

      • I ended up e-mailing them, and they said it had shipped that day. Got it just now. I have to say…it wasn’t worth the wait! Got the ugliest pair of panties I’ve seen in rayon with a fluorescent orange background and gray/black snake-like print. A pair of panties that are kind of pretty with blue lace and a pink and some pink fabric, but I think they’ll be too big. A bralette that is kind of a dark gray with antique (creamish beige) lace–looks like it’s been laying in someone’s attic for years! And a bright orange lacy babydoll thing that’s open in the front. Pretty sure it’s going back. I mean, I switched from neutrals/pretty and polished to brights/fun and flirty, but these are some ugly brights! My apparel loves were “loungewear” and “camis” with “tanks,” “panties,”, and “soft bras” in likes. Wish I’d gotten more loungewear. Maybe I need to do like Liz and put fewer things in “Likes.”

        • Oh no! Now I’m really scared about my box (which has shipped but has an ETA of next Friday…that’s almost a week in transit time). I can only hope that they got really awesome products to fill my box when they “ran out”. On a side note, my boxes have always shipped via USPS but this one is coming UPS. I hope they haven’t switched because I used to get my boxes in just a few days!

    • What??! That scares me a little..I love my want able intimates box but not having enough product to Fill your box is pretty sketchy sounding.

      • I placed my first order on 7/14 which shipped yesterday. I place an accessories order the same day which arrived on Saturday. The accessories are a hit so I am hoping for the same for the intimate box.

  6. Your box is so much cuter than mine. :/ I like the Honeydew underwear I received, but my Rene Rofe set was a blah leopard print in a tshirt and short set that just wasn’t very flattering in color or cut, and was supposed to be a completely different set according to my invoice. I also received a leopard print shirt dress in a color that was a few shades off from my skintone and different undertone, so it looked weird on me too. I’ve tried initiating a return, but it’s still not showing up as arrived, which customer service said they would fix last week. I really want to love this subscription.

  7. I received an underwire bra, too! It was a flesh toned t-shirt bra and it fits perfectly! I don’t mind it at all. I must say though that I love your selection. I got the tan animal print pj short set and love your peach one more, and the Kathy Ireland print is gorgeous! I think I’m going to choose the same settings you did for next month. I did receive a lovely Honeydew cami, though, and I love the bra, *and* I will wear the pjs, so not complaining at all. It’s fun to receive a monthly gift!

  8. I skipped this month because the last couple of months for me were a complete miss. I’m considered plus size and I guess they don’t have the best selection, I’m only a extra large and I swear the things they send me are hideous! ugly underwear, mis-matched pajama sets, ugh it’s been a nightmare! maybe August will be better

  9. This is my 4th month in a row skipping. For one thing, I’m losing weight, and it’s hard to fit in person let alone through an online questionnaire. For the other, I wish I knew the secret to getting loungewear or those feminine chemises. It seems the secret to getting multiple pairs of socks is to be a size 2X. I might go back and double check the sizes and put socks as a dislike.

  10. I’ve updated my preferences on Wantable like 5 times in the past week based on comments I’ve read in different places. (I’m waiting for them to send a message saying “Make up your mind already!”) Basically, I’ve been bumping up Fun & Flirty and moving down the Pretty and Polished since I want a more fun box. I moved panties to “Loved” but saw some people got 3 pairs, so I moved it back down to “Liked.” It says my box won’t ship till the 13th, so hopefully they’ll still be able to customize it to my most recent requests!
    I’m wondering about the underwire bras–they’re the main type I wear, but I feel like I need to try those on to get the sizing right, unlike soft bras.

    • I’ve heard Victoria’s Secret underwire bras are sized differently than other brands. I don’t know if that’s true, but all of my bras are from VS and, while I’d like to branch out, I’m afraid I wouldn’t get the sizing right! I know what VS size works for me and I tend to wait for sales and stick with what I know. I can’t help but feel like I’m missing out, though.

      • I mostly wear Calvin Klein bras (get good deals on them at Nordstrom Rack and other places), so I know what you mean about the sizing. Sometimes I’ll try on other brands, and it seems totally different! Men have it so much easier with the sizing of things…

  11. I love that bra! My preference list is similar to yours, hoping I get that too! But it is weird that they don’t have that as an option on their site.

  12. I LOVE my Wantable intimates sub so much, I only choose to get tanks and underwear and I have been happy with the selections so far, I can never have enough of either of these. I used to get shapewear too until I had enough lol. I would love the choice for underwire bras since I need some support lol. I predict I will be a longterm subscriber unless things change.

  13. I love the two piece set!! I was getting a lot of underwear so i put that in my dislikes. I’m hoping I get things like your two piece set!! I basically only put Loungewear down and since I’ve done that, I’ve been very happy

  14. My box was a complete miss this month – THREE pairs of underwear (only one that I really liked) and a hideous leopard print sleep set that is really large and not soft at all. I’m really disappointed they sent three of one category – I had two categories in my loves (underwear and tanks) and three more in my likes, one would think that was enough to get some variety. This one is going back and I’m probably cancelling as well.

    • I think I got the same leopard set. It’s not something I would ever pick. I was really hoping for something similar to their featured items and the more trendy and feminine items I saw in reviews.

    • Wow you are lucky to at least get something else all I got was 5 pairs of underwear. The sad part is I had underwear as like and tanks and stuff as love but I got nothing else.

  15. Let us know if they’ve changed the bra preferences. I find that I’d rather have underwire cup bras than soft bras and I haven’t signed up because I didn’t think that was an option.

    • I just checked – according to their site they still only offer soft bras and bandeaus – weird!

      • That is weird because I’ve received an underwire bra in each of my boxes with them. The last one was a balconette bra that was really pretty.
