Wantable Style Edit Subscription Box Review– September 2016
Wantable Style Edit has been a major player in the subscription styling service market for over a year now, and they just started offering plus sizes at the end of July. I was thrilled to get the chance to try them out! Wantable Style Edit is one of several different subscription boxes offered by Wantable, including Wantable Intimates, Accessories, Fitness, and Makeup.
This box was sent to us at no cost to review (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
The Subscription Box: Wantable Style Edit
The Cost: $20 styling fee per month, plus the cost of whatever you decide to keep. The styling fee is deducted from your purchase. You save 20% off everything if you keep the entire shipment!

Ships to: US only for free (both directions!)
Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. Wantable uses a great model of indicating what you love, what you like and what you dislike, for all their subscriptions! They send you more of what you love, and never what you dislike. These are the preferences I selected. I can go back and change them at any time.
Below my preferences is a note from my stylist, Madelyn. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me.
This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $334. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That brings the total down to $247.20 for a discount of $88.80. That’s a deep discount!
Lace Shoulder Detail Cardigan – Cost to Keep $49
This is a cute cardigan, and I think it looks pretty good on me. I really like the dolman sleeves!
Rolled boyfriend Kress Jeans by Kensie – Cost to Keep $78
I got a pair of Kensie jeans in my Wantable Style Edit last month, too, and I think I liked those better. These are super comfortable, and I love the “lived in” look of these… But… Is it my imagination, or do these actually make my legs look bigger somehow?
Also note that I straightened my hair for these pictures. I always think my wavy hair looks so big and crazy, so I thought I would try the flat look. I don’t know how I feel about it!
Knit Top – Cost to Keep $49
I think I love this extremely lightweight sweater! It’s got a pretty flattering shape, and it’s warm without being bulky. It’s a great transition piece to cooler weather.
Long Sleeve Woven Top by Perch – Cost to Keep $50
This is my favorite piece in the box and I am totally keeping it! I love the color and print, and I think it’s absolutely perfect for autumn! I also like that it flows out at the waist; that makes for such a flattering silhouette. I love it!
Harlow Faux Wrap Dress by Kiyonna – Cost to Keep $108
I love Kiyonna’s pieces so much, but sometimes I feel like I’m not, uh, well-endowed enough to wear them. This is one of those pieces. Her dresses are so sexy, but if they are not the right shape for me, I just end up feeling kind of naked and self-conscious. I think this one has to go back, unfortunately.
Verdict: I am really loving my Wantable Style Edit so far! I love that they included a boutique brand this month (Perch), and it was such a great piece! I hope they continue to include items from Kiyonna, but not every item from Kiyonna will be a win for me. They’re still fun to try on! Even though not every single piece this month was a win for me, I absolutely love having items hand-selected for me, and I think my stylist is doing an excellent job!
