Gwynnie Bee Review + 50% Off Coupon – February 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 February 2018 Review
This review is of the one item at a time for two items that I received February 2nd through March 1st.
I opted to try this boat-neck style spandex and polyester blend dress for the retro paisley pattern. I went down to a size twenty in this dress, but I may have been able to go a size smaller since it was rather roomy! If you prefer your dresses to fit more like a snug bodycon, I would suggest going down a size. I was surprised at the length of the dress since it looks more like a mini dress on the Gwynnie Bee model. This piece is perfect for the office but would be fantastic for a wedding with glitzy gold sandals and tassel earrings.
This month I was sent another three-quarter length sleeve dress, this time an olive green, floral, retro style number. I am not sure when I closeted this piece, but for whatever reason, I chose a 4x. I would have preferred this to be more form fitting and would have preferred the 2x. The dress isn’t extremely baggy, but I feel that a smaller size would have enhanced the twisted fabric detail at the waist. The fabric is an ultra- soft, stretchy, comfortable, polyester. I paired the dress with black wedge heels, but I could see it looking fantastically with pattern clashing leopard print heels as well to amp up the vixen vibes.
Verdict: This month’s selections had a few sizing issues, but I was partially at fault due to selecting the incorrect size for the second dress. Both dresses were extremely comfortable and would be fantastic for my office job, but also with the right accessories could translate well outside of the workplace. Gwynnie Bee remains one of my favorite subscription boxes, especially since I am between sizes. Having a rental service where I don’t have to commit to quality pieces that I will outgrow in a few months is a blessing! It is also fantastic for trying out different trends without breaking the bank! I also am excited that Gwynnie Bee has broadened their sizing to be inclusive of straight sizes as well. It is truly a service I would suggest to my friends of all sizes, especially young professionals in need of work clothes on a budget!

Value Breakdown: Gwynnie Bee’s costs range depending 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 two 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.
