Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013

The Intimates subscription from Wantable is one of my favorite new subscriptions of 2013 – I have been so thrilled with the quality of items and value in each box! (If you’re new to Wantable, they offer three different highly customizable subscription boxes: Makeup, Accessories, and Intimates).

Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013 Card

You get to take a pretty lengthy survey when you start your subscription if you want to customize the items you get. Here are my choices for the box. (You also can edit your preferences whenever you want).

Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013 Muk Luks

Muk Luks Nordic Wonder Slipper Socks – Value $24

I own a few pair of Muk Luks slippers and boots, so I knew I’d love these even before I put them on. They’re so cozy!

Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013 Socks

Pact Organic Lake Blue Pointelle Socks – Value $8

These are cute, but I decided I only want long socks for boots from Wantable right now, so I just went in and updated my profile!

Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013 Pants

Steve Madden Foldover Yoga Pant in Peri Berry – Value $40

The material these pants are made with is super-soft, and I don’t have any lounge/yoga pants in this color, so I’m pleased!

Wantable Intimates Box Review - Dec 2013 Boxers

Steve Madden Sleep Shorts in Print Mania – Value $30

Verdict: I paid $36 for this box and received over $100 worth of items! I’m really happy with the value, and I love that all the brands are names I recognize and like (although I didn’t know Steve Madden made loungwear items!)

What did you get in your Wantable Intimates box this month?

  1. Just signed up ….. oh those slipper socks. How I wished I signed up in time for those 🙁

  2. I really want to like my Wantables Intimates box, but they are making it very difficult. My first box was December, and it seemed that they paid no attention to my survey before sending the box. I ended up contacting customer service and only kept one of the items (an eye mask that I gave to my fiance’s grandmother since she had wanted a new one). The other three items were total misses and I returned them.

    First, they sent me boy short underwear when I had listed boy shorts as a dislike in my survey. Second, the sent a bra that was size XS (I’m 34B) and wasn’t even the item on the shipping list. Third, the cami that they sent was a weird blue bandanna print. I would have lived with what I thought was an ugly print if the other items were correct.

    I sent those items back and just got the replacements today. First item is the Steve Madden yoga/pj pants in the same color as in the review. I’m actually happy with this item. Second is a black Wantables soft bra. It doesn’t excite me, but I will wear it with t-shirts and since I haven’t tried it on yet I might end up loving it. Third, they sent me tights that aren’t the right size. I looked at the size chart and at 5’4″ 150 pounds, I am clearly in the size M/L and they sent S/M. When I e-mailed customer service about it, they said that it looked like I could have gone with either size. I assume this is because I would normally be a size M and M was listed in both sizes, but if you look at the height/weight, anyone over 130 pounds at 5’4″ should wear the M/L.

    I feel like, even with these issues, that I have managed to get the value spent on the box, but if the next month’s box has items that clearly conflict with what I entered on my survey, it is likely that they will lose my business. I had really high hopes for this box, and this has been a bit of a let down.

    • Update – I heard back from customer service again, and they will be sending me a new pair of tights in the right size and are no asking for me to send the other ones back. I have gifted them to my sister.

      I have been happy about the customer service with Wantables. I’m just hoping that my second box won’t require my having to contact them for anything. 🙂

  3. I would have loved your box, everything was so cute. My first box was crap. I updated everything so hopefully it will get better or I am outta there. I unfortunately tore the tags off not thinking about returning it, so I am stuck with the crap. I signed up when they had the free second box, so I am stuck there for now. 🙁

    • You might still want to try emailing their customer service and ask if you can return it – I’ve only heard wonderful things about how accommodating the Wantable customer care team is!

      • I did return the tiny bra they sent me & I got the sleep shorts like yours so I am happy. They were very nice & quick. I did get my January box today & I am super happy! 😀

  4. I think the Wantable boxes are my favorites. I LOVED my first boxes and my second boxes are on the way!

  5. I unfortunatly sent back my first box – the two expensive items were total misses for me…however I did learn that their customer service is amazing!! I ordered with the free box code and they will still honor my 2nd box free even with a full refund on the first one. I’m just going to pay more attention to my quiz so I don’t get anything with “vintage lace”, so not my style.

    • Sorry about your box, but I’m happy to hear your experience with their customer care was great! (I had to contact them once about getting silver sunglasses when I requested no silver items, and they sent me a replacement pair of glasses asap – plus they let me keep the original glasses to gift!)

  6. I got my box last week and was thrilled! Everything was such high quality and just what I wanted. One pair of boy shorts in a cute stripe print, a pair of lace hipsters, argyle print thigh highs, and a soft blue lounge hoodie. This is by far the best value of all of my subs so far!

  7. I also got this box, thanks to your alert about the Cyber Monday deal. I may change my preferences around a little seeing how amazing your box it, but I really can’t complain.

    2 pairs of cute panties, same little aqua socks as you (which are freezing with those holes!), and my first Coobie. Loved everything! Great box for the price. <3

  8. I ordered this with the Black Friday deal, and it was one of my favorite boxes ever! The customization process almost guarantees a win. I loved everything in my box and it was an excellent value. I got the Muk Luks, soft striped socks, comfy cute lounge pants, and fun striped thigh high tights. Can’t wait for January.

    • Yay – so glad you loved it!

  9. Does Wantable offer a discount on your first box? I’m interested in trying out the makeup and intimates but $40/box is a bit steep just to try it out…

    • They don’t have any current discounts I’m aware of – sorry!

    • The Wantable makeup box is fantastic…I just got my first one. It’s highly customizable, I loved EVERYTHING in the box, and well worth the $36 in my opinion! I’d drop all the cheap ones and keep this one if I had to 🙂

      • I’m so glad you like the Wantable makeup subscription! I have the makeup and intimates subscription, and I’m thinking about signing up for the accessories one again!
