Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – December 2014
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!
FYI – they recently changed the amount of items you get in this subscription from 4-5 to 3-4.
Here is more info from Wantable on the change:
“Wantable made several changes to our intimates collection based on customer feedback which we implemented on October 24th. Some of these changes included adding a new lingerie category, adding a sexy style option and increasing individual item value. As a result all collections now contain 3 sometimes 4 items, where previously collections contained 4 sometimes 5 items.”
Wantable kindly sent me this box to review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Wantable Intimates Subscription
The Cost: $36 a month (one time only purchase available for $40)
The Products: Intimates products based on your profile settings.
Ships to: US, Canada (additional $6), UK (additional $7) and Australia (additional $10)
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).
Here are the order details as well.
Nouveau Dot PJ Set – Value $40
This set is cute, and I’m happy to report that the sheer purple ruffle at the bottom does not expose skin. (I was a little worried it was too short at first and the overall look would be a little weird).
K. Bell Knee Socks – Value $9 (On sale for $4.50)
Yummie Tummie Leggings – Value $30
These socks are a blend of merino wool, spandex and nylon. I love long socks for wearing under tall boots, so I’m always happy to have another pair.
I like these Yummie Tummie leggings a lot. They look like capris when you first take them out of the packaging, but stretch to the full length legging. They are slightly sheer, and provide shaping without being uncomfortable at all. And they are high-waisted! (Also I like Heather from Real Housewives of NYC, so I was extra excited to give these a try!)
Verdict: Based on the changes Wantable announced with their transitioning to 3-4 items per box, I was expecting to get fewer items, but the value to stay about the same since they were introducing higher end brands. That didn’t really happen with this box – the value seems slightly lower, ($79), and I was expecting more brands I haven’t seen in previous boxes. I am really excited about the Yummie Tummie brand being included though. I think I’ll need to revisit my preference settings for this subscription. It seems like they’ve added higher-value brands in the lingerie categories, and that might now be the best way to get the most value out of this subscription.
I like all my items though, and I still think it is a good deal, I just can’t help but compare it to previous boxes. I guess this is the adjustment period!
