This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.

 

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 May 2018 Review

Gwynnie Bee Box May 2018 0004

Embroidered Black Festival Vibe Dress by City Chic, Size L (20) – Retail Value $74

This light, breezy, gauzy dress is perfect for the humid summers out where I live. The material has a lot of breathability but is rather sheer so I made sure to wear appropriate undergarments. The style also is fantastic; it has an ultra- Summer of Love 1967/San Francisco flower child aesthetic. Ironically, I want to take this with me on a trip to the Bay Area in June, I mean how could I not? I paired the dress with my large brimmed hat I bought at a Vintage Mixer, my Shake Appeal necklace (always representing Iggy), accessories from an upcoming Jewlybox review, and my favorite summer low heeled, open-toed shoes!

Long Sleeve Forest Faux Wrap Dress by B Collection, Size 2x – Retail Value $81

Another long, bell sleeved dress was included in my May selections! I love the faux wrap style as well because it is so flattering on the body! This dress also has a retro aesthetic that I absolutely adore! The muted floral pattern adds a sophistication to the dress. The material is light with ample stretch. This could easily be worn on a cooler summer day or worn through fall, with patterned tights, and booties or Swedish Hasbeen style heels.

Cap Sleeve Striped Shift Dress by Adrianna Papell, Size 20W – Retail Value $72.50

My closet is a sea of horizontal striped dresses, so it is absolutely no shock this one appealed to me as well! The peachy coral paired with the navy blue is an incredibly complimentary color scheme. The dress is a made of a thicker fabric that has tons of stretch. This would look fantastic on a cool summer night paired with a light denim jacket, tan sandals, and a navy blue bandana tied as a necklace. This also could translate into a great piece for the office.

 

Livia Tank Dress in Bloom Print by Cooper & Ella, Size 2x – Retail Value $124

This may be my favorite piece of the month, and that says a lot since I adore every dress I received! I had to box this dress immediately due to its fantastic, retro 60s style floral print. The color scheme is gorgeous and so unique too! How often do you see royal blue, red, and black paired with pastel shades? The fabric has no stretch, so definitely make sure to check the size options against your actual measurements for this one! I am definitely taking this piece with me on my trip to California, it is too perfect! I paired it with some adorable earrings my mom gifted me, Baby Pink heart shaped cat-eye sunnies from a previous Pinup in a Pack review of mine and gorgeous gold knot sandals from my most recent Shoedazzle review! This dress is perfect for vacation, weddings, or a cute daytime date ensemble!

Verdict: I absolutely LOVE Gwynnie Bee! Gwynnie Bee was the first subscription box I reviewed for MSA and remains to be one of my favorite subscription boxes! I love the fact this is a rental service and I wear items without a commitment to buy. It has been a blessing this past year of losing weight. I was able to also try out a variety of styles and trends, which is great for a fashion fiend such as myself. I also love that Gwynnie Bee is inclusive and offers sizes 0-30! That is fantastic! I feel that fashion should be available for everyone, of all sizes, and I appreciate that Gwynnie Bee feels the same way! In addition, if you do like a piece enough to buy it, you can often get it at a discounted rate and accrue points that can lead to further discounts. What isn’t there to love about Gwynnie Bee?

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes! Four of the five pieces I reviewed are available to rent or purchase at Gwynnie Bee. The sweater dress, sadly, is no longer available for rent or purchase.

Coupon – No coupon required! Just use this link to sign up and get your first month FREE!

Value Breakdown: Gwynnie Bee’s costs range depending on your subscription and how many items you are sent at a time. I have the $95 three item at a time plan. 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. The four pieces I reviewed total to $351.50. That is roughly $265.50 more than my monthly subscription! Imagine the value if I had returned these pieces and got more!
