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!

This review is of the 3 items at a time subscription from 4/21 through 5/20.
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!
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.
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!
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.
I liked this dress, and it looked pretty good on. It was also comfortable. But the print was really different in real life!
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.
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!
