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 7/21 through 8/20.


HEMANT & NANDITA – Kimono In Floral Print

This kimono was super cute and so easy to wear! I wish it was made from natural fiber fabric instead of synthetic. I might have been tempted to purchase it if it had!


JULIA JORDAN – Floral Reflection Sheath Dress

I felt really pretty in this dress, and my husband gave me a nice compliment. He really liked it too!



MELISSA MCCARTHY SEVEN7 – Colorblock Chambray Dress

Oh Melissa McCarthy, how you have disappointed me. At best I would label this dress unflattering. It looked so cute on the model, though!


XTWO – Joanne Top

This was another easy, comfortable top that looked really nice. What else could I want?


MELISSA MCCARTHY SEVEN7 – Cardigan In Black Tie Dye

This cardigan was great! The fabric doesn’t have any stretch, though, but it really looked cool on. I was tempted to purchase this one, but I wasn’t sure how many wears I would get out of it. My husband thought this was really cool, too.


BB DAKOTA – Katrin Shirt Dress

I actually loved this dress even though it didn’t look as good on me as I had hoped it might. I love the plaid! It has a jersey slip built in underneath, and I wore it with a lightweight beige cardigan. It was a pleasure to wear!

Verdict: This was another fun month with Gwynnie Bee! I am really enjoying this subscription for a number of reasons. I like wearing something different every day, and this is a big help! I also made a bit of a deal with myself when I signed up that I would wear everything I got at least once. I think I’ve only gone back on that promise once or twice due to sizing issues. It really helps push me out of my comfort zone and try new things. I love it!

What do you think of Gwynnie Bee?

  1. I actually though the Katrin dress looked the best on you! It looks very casual but cute. Very relaxed and country chic!

  2. I like the kimono, sheath dress and cardigan on you, very flattering. Werk it girl:)

  3. I can’t say enough good things about that floral dress. You look smashing!

  4. The floral sheath is a total knockout! That style is absolutely perfect on you!

  5. I appreciate you taking the time to model the clothes. It really adds perspective to all the outfits. Quite frankly, it all looked good on you. I wish I had more hits than misses like you seem to pick. I love Gwynnie Bee in general but had to take a break$$$. These reviews always make me want to start up again.

  6. I thought everything looked great on you but especially that floral sheath. I agree that you need to buy it if it comes up in the shop (or re closet it so you can get it again and buy it!)

  7. Anna, you do look beautiful in the floral sheath dress! Especially with that lipstick you are wearing! Can you buy the clothes, and are they expensive?

    • Thanks Sonja! Yes, you can purchase any item you get for a deep discount! They also often show up later in the GB shop at clearance prices.

  8. Anna, I would love to see your closet! The Julia Jordan dress looks amazing on you. I have tried on the Melissa McCarthy Seven7 designs at Lane Bryant and been very disappointed too. They are really cute but just do not fit my body, in anyway, shape or form.

    • Hi Jann! Thanks for reading. Seven7 jeans are so good tho! This might have been the first non jeans thing I’ve tried.

  9. You look so good in most of those clothes! The only total loser is that one smock. I liked your description of it looking like you escaped from a mental ward though. And the floral dress looks really fantastic on you. Thanks for a fun review 🙂 I like seeing some of the variety of things you can get sent to you.

    • Thanks Ali!

  10. I LOVE the Colorblock Chambray Dress by MELISSA MCCARTHY SEVEN7! SO cute on you!!

    • Lol! Thanks meg!

  11. You look stunning in the floral dress. You should buy it!

    • Thanks Janet! I will keep my eyes open for it in the shop.

  12. You look lovely in the floral sheath dress and your husband was absolutely right for complimenting you in it. The seven7 dress might actually be cute but it would need accessories like a wide light colored rope belt and maybe a necklace. Thanks for a nice review!

    • Thanks Deli!
