Gwynnie Bee Box Review + Free Month Coupon – May 2016

Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental subscription service for women sizes 10-32. I have been intrigued with their concept for a while because I think plus-sized clothing is sorely underserved in the subscription box market. I have been having a lot of fun with this subscription!

Gwynnie Bee kindly invited me to try their service for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

This review is of the 3 items at a time subscription from 4/21 through 5/20.


JETE – Royal Plaid Hi Lo Tunic

This tunic was easy, comfortable, and cute. I don’t think I actually own any hi-lo tops, but that’s one thing that makes Gwynnie Bee really fun – the opportunity to try things you wouldn’t normally buy!


ELVI – Denim Jeggings

These jeggings were super comfortable! I wore them at least twice. If I didn’t already own too many jeans, I probably would have bought them.


KAREN KANE – Tribal Stripe Crepe Top

Oh my gosh I loved this top! I didn’t think the colors would look good on me, but surprise, they totally worked! I loved that it is hooded, and the crepe material was so lightweight. I would have bought it, but the sale price was still over $100, so it was not meant to be. I will definitely keep my eye out for it in the Gwynnie Bee shop, though!


DRA – Robin Top In Navy Floral

This blouse, on the other hand, was a little disappointing. I loved the way it looked on the model, but I wasn’t expecting it to have such a synthetic feel. It didn’t look as great in real life as it did in the picture.


TAYLOR DRESSES – Black & Royal Floral Dress

I liked this dress, and it looked pretty good on. It was also comfortable. But the print was really different in real life!


YOURS CLOTHING – Tie Dye Cold Shoulder Top

You can’t see from the picture (because the dress form doesn’t have arms), but this top does have off-the-shoulder sleeves. It’s so flattering! I am buying this top! It’s only $23, it’s a natural fabric, and I will probably wear it a dozen or more times this summer.


JULIAN TAYLOR – Flared Dress in Shadow Floral

This is another piece that looks a lot different online than it does in real life. On the model, it looks as if the gray and white part hits the black and blue part right below the waist, but in real life it hits somewhere on the thigh. It also is not knee-length in real life, it’s more like tea length. I don’t usually have this problem with Gwynnie Bee items, but this month I had three out of seven items that didn’t look like their online versions! It’s still very pretty, though.

Verdict: Despite receiving some items that weren’t exactly what I expected this month, I am still a huge Gwynnie Bee fan. I always talk about the never-ending wardrobe, getting to try things I wouldn’t normally try, and all those good things. Those are still very much a part of why I love Gwynnie Bee, but I also wanted to mention that members get access to the Gwynnie Bee shop, which is SO AWESOME! They just ended a $10 flash sale, where they were selling loads of beautiful pieces for, yes, $10! It’s just one of many advantages of being a member!

  1. I am to the point now where I couldn’t live without this sub. My weight has been fluctuating a lot and it has been a lifesaver.

  2. Love your reviews as always <3

    I kept that cold shoulder top too 🙂

    • So did I! Haha! It’s such a soft fabric!!
      I’ve been a member of Gwynnie Bee since October and if I ever had to get rid of stuff, this is the one I would FIND a way to keep ? it’s the best sub I get…and I get a few, lol 🙂

  3. I should try a clothing rental sub. I don’t know why this just occurred to me. I am having this problem of having lost weight (but needing to lose a bit more) and my clothes don’t look good on me right now — too many things are too big. But, I don’t want to buy clothes in my current size when I will probably end up a size or two smaller by the time I reach my goal because then I would just have to go buy clothes again in a few months and I would be out all the money that I spent on the intermediate size. Something like this would be perfect. I like a lot of the Gwynnie Bee styles but I am somewhat below their stated size range so I guess I will keep looking.

  4. In regards to items looking different on models: they’re in the misses versions, not the women’s. I’ve noticed in certain brands the proportions and styles are different for 10 and 12 than 14-28. For example there’s a great Sandra Darren mixed print dress that some people are raving over and some are saying is too long. The ladies raving are 10s and 12s, the ones having trouble are larger sizes. I’ve realized how important it is to read the reviews.

    • Ah, good point Ali! I didn’t know. Thank you!
