Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – November 2017
Wantable is a fitness styling subscription service similar to Stitch Fix. You fill out an in-depth survey about your fitness clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you. Wantable offers several types of “Edits” and “Collections” for you to choose from.
With “Edits” (choose Fitness or Style), a stylist will curate pieces that you can choose to buy at a discount or return at no additional cost (just the $20 monthly styling fee). For “Collections” (choose Makeup or Intimates), you’ll pay $40 (Makeup) or $50 (Intimates) per month to receive items you can keep at no additional cost.
I’ll be reviewing the Intimates Collection today, which is $50.00 per month (+ free U.S. shipping).
Unfortunately, Wantable Intimates is ending its service! (We’ll miss you, Wantable Intimates!)
The Subscription Box: Wantable Intimates Collection
The Cost: $50.00 for your first month, $46 a month thereafter. Unlike the Wantable “Edits” (Fitness and Style), there’s no additional fee to keep the pieces in this “Collection” subscription.

The Products: 3 intimate apparel items (underwear, lingerie, loungewear, pajamas, etc.) curated to fit the preferences you set when you sign up.

All of the retail values and discount prices (what I ended up paying) for the items are listed in this folded invoice. I got a bonus item this month!
And just in case you’re curious about fit, I set my preferences to size M for tops and size L for bottoms. I’m usually a 36B, a size 6 or 8 in dresses, and a size 10(ish) in jeans and pants. Okay! Let’s get started!
Dreamwave Pajama Drama Dot Legging, Size Large – Retail Value $22.00, Cost to Keep $8.88
It’s helpful to know that these leggings come from a pajama company—they definitely wear more like pajama bottoms and less like leggings I’d wear out and about or to the gym. They have a stiffer kind of knit to them and are looser on me than any other size large leggings I’ve tried. The waist, in particular, just kind of sits at my hips, rather than holding on. Maybe that’s not super practical when I’m running around town doing errands, but it definitely works when you’re lazing around (especially after a big holiday meal…).
Affinitas Intimates Claire Aubergine Bikini Panty, Size Large – Retail Value $14.00, Cost to Keep $5.65
I LOVE the color of these undies! It’s so pretty, especially with the subtle sheen that the lace and silky detail give it. This very lacy pair fit fabulously—I really like when undies don’t have a trim or a hem along the leg holes since those things can interrupt a nice smooth silhouette. The lacy fabric laid flat and comfortably against my skin and felt super flirty at the same time.
Affinitas Intimates Claire Push-Up Bra in Aubergine, 36B – Retail Value $40.00, Cost to Keep $16.14
There’s a bra to match the panties, too! I’m so digging this set. Like the undies, this bra features some lacy details (a lace overlay on each cup) and some silky accents (around the band). I’ve been wearing unlined bras and bralettes so often that this look struck me as being kind of stiff and thick, but to be honest, I don’t think it’s anything out of the ordinary or unusual for a push-up bra. And the little bit of padding at the bottom of each cup gave a good bit of oomph.
Daisy Fuentes Lace T-Shirt Bra in Dark Ruby, 36B – Retail Value $38.00, Cost to Keep $15.33
I don’t usually go for red, but I did like the fit of this t-shirt bra. The lace accents made it feel a little more special than just a plain, solid-color t-shirt bra. It was still on the stiffer side, but it didn’t poke out from under a t-shirt like other similar bras sometimes do. My only real gripe is that the brand is stamped along the length of each strap, which feels a little awkward.
The Verdict: This was a pretty successful Wantable Intimates order for me. I liked the purple-toned bra and panty set I got a lot, and while the color of the second bra wasn’t my fave, it’s a nice, out-of-the-ordinary addition to my rather monochrome underwear drawer. The leggings will serve me well for lounging around the house this holiday season, even if they’re not totally my style. (Who turns down extra around-the-house pants?) I’m sad to see ya go, Wantable Intimates!
