Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – August

Wantable Intimates is one of the subscriptions from Wantable, and it is probably my favorite box they offer. Like all Wantable subscriptions, you can heavily customize what they send you by filling out your preferences – and you still get to be surprised!

Wantable kindly sent me this box to review.

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Info

When you first sign up for any Wantable subscription you take a style quiz and you can get very specific about the items you want and don’t want. (This is the list of my loves, likes and dislikes from my invoice).

FYI – You have to select at least 2 categories of items you like or love. I decided just to go with loungewear and soft bras.

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Bras

Q-T Intimates Sleep Bra – Value $17.50

Honeydew Lace Trimmed Mesh Bralette – Value $22

When I first saw this sleep bra I thought it looked like a nursing bra – and I was right! Fortunately it also works just as a layering piece for me, so I’ll use it!

I love the Honeydew Intimates brand, and I’m thrilled Wantable carries it! They do size up in HoneyDew items though (this is an XL and I would have preferred if they had sent a L). I bet I can shrink it in the laundry though.

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Pants

Rene Rofe Lounge Pant – Value $28

I know it is still summer but I’m already getting in fall-cozy mode, so these lounge pants are perfect!

Wantable Intimates Subscription Box Review – August 2014 Slip

Rene Rofe Mini Dot Chemise – Value $38

This slip is lovely, and it has adjustable straps. It’s a little on the big side for me, but still wearable. Hopefully one time through the laundry will make it a perfect fit!

Verdict: I love basic black staples, so the color selection of this box is a great fit for me. And I’ll wear every item, so that’s a win too! (This box has a value of about $105). Now that fall is coming it’s time for me to adjust my preferences so I can stock up on tights and long socks!

What did you get from Wantable Intimates this month? Do you change your preferences for the different seasons?

  1. itsmaking me pick at least 3 items this month .. why is that ?!

  2. I received my first box today. I was unimpressed. I received a pair of medium weight long pjs with button up pj shirt. They reminded me of something a grandmother would wear. I also got 2 thongs but both look so tiny. One was a large and one was an xl. I wear a large from Victoria Secrets. I did receive a pair if cute socks. They were cute but not $36 cute. Nothing in the box seemed Summer like. I am waiting for my shipping to update to “shipped” so I can request to return the box. I love your lounge pants and wished I got something like that.

    • You can contact their customer service, and they’ll update the box to “delivered” for you. I did that last month when I was unhappy with my box. They responded very quickly!

  3. I emailed them to ask if they have nursing bras and I was told they don’t! I always have soft bras selected just in case but I haven’t got a nursing bra yet. Oh well, I bought 3 yesterday at target. I’ve gotten this box for about 5 months and this was the first month I sent back. I’m looking forward to next month and can’t wait for them to start the fitness boxes.

  4. Liz–I need to talk to you about the swap site. Is there someone I can contact. Someone ripped me off and never sent her half. I entered negative feedback and she then entered negative feedback for me!!! Tracking was entered days after she got it and have messages to prove this. Can You Please Help me?!?! I don’t want negative on MY side when I got swaplifted!!!

    • Hi Krista,

      I’m sorry to hear it. Can you send me an email? ([email protected])

      • Liz–I sent you an email through the site. Did you get it?

        • Hm, no I didn’t. We just switched email providers so I’ll check into it. Sorry!

          • Okay. The first one came back to me saying it couldn’t send it. Hopefully you got that one!

  5. I received the same lounge pants, and L-O-V-E!!! I also received 2 shapewear pieces from Yummie Tummie and a pair of cable knit leggings/tights in the perfect color of blue for fall. I’ve been so happy with Wantable, and the one month that didn’t work out was super easy to return and refunded in full. No questions asked.

  6. I just ordered my first wantable box. I should receive it Sat. Can’t wait to see what I get.

  7. Are all the pieces included with the sub prices? Or do you have to pay for all or some of the items you keep?

    • All these pieces are for the $36 subscription price – it is a great value!

  8. I received a Plejue Intimates babydoll in coral, red leggings from Isadora Paccini, an apricot hipster from Rene Rofe, and a turquoise bikini from Third Love.

    I wasn’t happy with the mix of products, I redid my style quiz for better results next time.

    • I’m thinking of changing my style quiz/preferences every couple of months anyway. Since you’re ensured not to receive any “dislikes” it’s a good way to not get something you may be getting overloaded in.

  9. I just received my first box and I think it’s my new favorite box! I also received the chemise and lounge pants, as well as some fun leggings and a Honeydew tank.

  10. I love what you got!!! I got one of the honeydew bras too and I like it. I forget if they sized me up or not. Actually my whole box this month was from the Honeydew brand!!

  11. Still wish they’d do underwire bras (I’ve seen some people get them, but I don’t like soft bras and there doesn’t seem to be a way to select one but not the other).

  12. My Wantable box arrived earlier this week. This is the first time I kept the box after returning July’s and August’s boxes. This is my second August box. I’m happy with it. I received the same lounge pants and chemise which did shrink a little bit in the dryer. I also received a Renee Rolfe Rose Hipster and Third Love Turquoise Mesh Bikini. I’m very happy.

  13. Wantable sized 1 of my honeydew intimates up but not the other. I am going to swap both of them (loving your swap site!!). I love the print leggings they sent, though!
