Gwynnie Bee Box Review + Free Month Coupon – January 2018
Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental subscription service that caters to plus size women between the sizes of 10-32. Gwynnie Bee allows you to select items you like and they are put in a virtual closet. The chosen items sent to you are at random, but you can select priority pieces to be sent to you first. I just started using the service a couple months ago and can say I always have a lot of fun with this box!
Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental service, but they also have a marketplace on their site where you can buy strongly discounted used rental pieces and brand new accessories, underwear, and work out gear as well!
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Gwynnie Bee January 2018 Review
This review is of the one item at a time for two items that I received January 15th through February 1st.
If you have been following my reviews, you are probably aware of my love for anything that has a retro 60’s/70’s vibe. I had to closet this bell-sleeved mini dress as soon as it came up in my GB feed. It looks like something I could find in Cher or Stevie Nicks’ (we knew she would be brought up, that is a given!) wardrobe! I am usually a solid 20/22 these days, but this dress seemed slightly big on top. It could be because it is intended to be worn off the shoulders Naomi Harper style, but I was afraid if I wore it in that manner that I would accidentally expose myself! I like the laser cut lace-like details on the sleeves and bottom of the dress, it really elevates the dress’s style. I styled this simply with my buckle boots from my first Shoedazzle review, but this would look amazing with knee-high riding boots (I am envisioning black or brown) and tights for this chilly winter weather.
Scalloped Lace Top by Liz Claiborne, Size 2x
I was surprised that Gwynnie Bee sent me two black, bell-sleeved items back to back, but I ain’t even mad about it, guys! This top is fantastic due to how versatile it is. This shirt looks amazing with dress pants and heels at the office or with jeans, pointy toe flats, and a faux leather vest for a casual Saturday afternoon. I chose to wear this shirt with a retro paisley print skater skirt, black opaque tights, double buckle western belt, and tan booties. I opted to show you how it looks tucked and untucked to give an idea of how the top fits. The description on the Gwynnie Bee site states it has a little stretch, but I found this top to actually have a nice amount of stretch. I opted for the 2x and it fit me perfectly. This is definitely my favorite piece they sent me this month.
This top is a mystery to me because I did not closet it, but it still was included for me. I am not complaining, though, because this top is absolutely gorgeous! I adore the lace up detail and tassels on the front, but the back of this shirt may be even more stunning! The material is rather sheer and breezy, which will make it perfect for summer nights. When I look at this top, I can’t help but think of the beach and walking barefoot in the sand, watching the waves roll in. For my winter time interpretation of this top, I styled it with my trusty large brim hat, dark denim jeans, and khaki green booties.
Verdict: This month’s selections were full of 60s/70s throwback styles, so I am beyond pleased! My only issue was the fit of the dress because it fit me a bit oddly on the upper half. Otherwise, I have no complaints. Especially regarding the top, I didn’t even select being sent to me. How did you know, Gwynnie Bee? I am constantly delighted with Gwynnie Bee and they continue to be one of my favorite subscription boxes. I am in between sizes currently, so I cannot praise Gwynnie Bee enough for being a rental service. It allows me to get a feel for different brands and their sizing and to try out styles I am afraid to commit to, especially since in a month or two the item may no longer fit me. Friends will approach me for suggestions for subscription boxes and I always suggest GB if they are plus size because it is truly a no-brainer. You can select the items you like and wear them as many times as you want. In addition, how can you lose with the first month trial being free? Hop to it and join Gwynnie Bee!

Value Breakdown: Gwynnie Bee’s costs range dependent on your subscription and how many items you are sent at a time. I have the $49.99 one piece at a time. This includes free shipping and returns. I can get as many pieces as I like monthly, as long as I return each item first. I got three items this month, but I could get several pieces sent to me in a month’s time if I return each piece after wearing promptly. I can’t see the displayed price for Robbie Bee dress and the Flying Tomato top, but the Liz Claiborne lace dress top is $37 if I choose to keep it. That is roughly $12.99 more than my subscription cost.
