This review is of the 3 items at a time subscription from 6/21 through 7/20. This month I decided to see what how much of a difference it would make if I did not notify them that an item was being returned. I just sent them back and let them send me a new one when they received the old one.
This jacket is really beautiful and the vivid floral print is so summery. It’s also really well made! My only complaint is that it was just too hot to wear for more than a few minutes. It’s true that we have air conditioning everywhere in the south this time of year, but not enough to warrant this jacket. I think when I closeted it I thought it would be more lightweight.
I really liked the print of this dress, and the length was absolutely perfect! It was a bit too heavy for summer, though. Also I love shift dresses on myself, but for some reason this one looked a little like a sack on me.
This dress, on the other hand, was a complete knock-out! I sized up as GB suggested, and it fit like a glove. The color is actually more vibrant than pictured here. I thought when I put it on it was a little too body-con for my size, but I got tons of compliments on it! I might actually re-closet it!
This is the exact same dress as the shift dress above except in a different pattern, so I got the same results with this dress. The good news is that my husband really likes it when I dress colorfully.
This is the most comfortable thing I’ve worn all summer! It’s unlined yet not sheer at all, the arm holes are just the right size to wear a standard bra but not reveal it, and it’s nice and swingy without looking dumpy. Perfect! Plus I love the pattern.
I usually love wrap dresses and faux wrap dresses, and they are usually really flattering on me, but this one just wasn’t. I was excited about this print, but it wasn’t enough to make up for the weird fit. It had an elastic empire waist, which was strange, and then it had way too much fabric at the bust. I just kept fidgeting with it all day.
The Verdict: I really don’t blame Gwynnie Bee for anything that went wrong this month. Gwynnie Bee always sends quality garments in pristine condition! Sometimes I just want to try a different style to see how it looks and, let’s face it, no one looks good in everything. Also, it’s July and almost everything is too hot to wear! I did find some great things this month anyway, and I still highly recommend this service to any plus-size woman who likes to change up her wardrobe often.
Regarding this month’s experiment in which I didn’t notify GB online that I was returning items, it made huge difference! I only received about half as many items as usual in this time frame! So, lesson learned, make sure you notify them online when you are returning an item!
