Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – February 2016
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!
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Wantable Intimates
The Cost: If you subscribed before October 24th, you were locked into the previous $40/box rate. However, for new subscribers (anyone who signed up after October 24th) the new price has increased to $50/box.
The Products: 3 intimates products based on your profile settings.
Ships to: US, Canada (additional $6), UK (additional $7) and Australia (additional $10)
Here are the order details of my box. Wantable recently added free individual item returns to their subscription plans, so you can send back any item(s) you don’t want and get the refund based on the “Your price” listing. (Returns are free for US subscribers). However, if you keep everything, you get a “$4 credit” to your account making your next box $46. If you return anything, you have to pay the full $50 cost for the next box.
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).
Wantable has also developed their “stream,” which is basically just a feed of photos items from subscribers of their items and boxes. The items are identified and linked below the photos so if you see something you want, you can request it to be sent to you.
Nouveau by Pajama Drama Tunic – retail: $30 (my price: $16)
Nouveau by Pajama Drama Ruffle Shorts – retail: $30 (My Price $16)
Okay, so as many issues as I’ve been having with Wantable, I am really happy with this set – it actually might be one of my favorite things they’ve ever sent me, ever. The brand is the same as what I’ve seen in many other boxes so I don’t know if it’s “new inventory” from them or not, but this tunic and short set are really soft and fit great. (photo of these being worn at end of article.)
Blush Thong – retail: $15 (my price: $8)
This thong is okay. They’re soft and functional but I’m not super excited to get underwear in my boxes anymore. I should change my preferences, really. It’s just that I’ve received 2 or 3 pairs I’ve really loved in past boxes a while ago and keep hoping I’ll get more.
I really do love this tunic + short set. The lilac color is beautiful and both items fit really well. I’m really happy.
Verdict: Sometimes you can find items that Wantable sends on sale online so the value can be a little tricky to evaluate – personally, I think as long as all the items included are worth the subscription cost to me, I count the box as a win. I’m really happy with this month’s box, but I’m just not sure I would have paid $50 for it. I don’t know – at least this feels like a ray of hope that maybe they’re starting to send things I like better? Also, I’m really glad that my stylist paid attention to my note about liking tunics and tops (and not to send me anymore leggings!).
What do you think about Wantable Intimates? What did you get this month, and what do you think about the changes? Have you been having a better last couple months than I have?
