Gwynnie Bee Review + 50% Off Coupon – September 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 September 2018 Review
This review is of the one item at a time for three items that I received between September 1st through the 22nd.
Printed Keyhole Blouson Dress in Patina by Nine West, Size 18W – Retail Value $22
I had closeted this dress last year and I am glad to finally get to try it on! I saw my friend, Allysse Dalesandro of Ready to Stare, in this dress for a blog post some time ago and it reconfirmed how much I needed to closet this item. The dress is made from a stretch Jersey material, which I absolutely love! I feel like I am one of the few that appreciates Jersey material, but I appreciate how it hugs the figure. I also like the mock turtleneck on this piece along with the killer combo of the deep teal against the rust with black and white accents. This dress can be worn all year round, just add black tights, booties, and a black biker jacket in cooler months! Wear it in the summer with black open toe wedges. This dress is currently on deep discount and I am strongly considering giving it a forever home.
Lace Aqua Shift Dress by Gabby Skye, Size 20W – Retail Value Unavailable
I don’t even remember closeting this dress to be honest! I assume I must have picked it months ago during the summer months. This dress is a bit out of season for fall, but the seafoam color is still rather lovely. This is the perfect dress to wear to a spring wedding or formal event. The dress consists of intricate seafoam lace overlay with a stretchy, nude underlay. I am in full on fall mode and pressed the return button before writing down the price, guys! Sorry for that!
Fit and Flare Dress in Rose Violet by Rebel Wislon X Angels, Size 18W – Retail Value $69.50
This is another dress I don’t recall closeting, but hey, I am open to anything! I usually don’t wear a lot of fuscia or hot pink items, but I do appreciate how it looks against my orange hair! This piece is meant to be for summer, but the fabric is rather thick and warm! Don’t wear this dress on an 80 degree day, you will be sweltering! Another tip: I also have found that with the Rebel Wilson line it is crucial to look at the measurements. I generally size down to an 18 for an ideal fit. This dress has limited stretch due to the defined waistline. I opted to style this dress with silver flats and accessories from my most recent Pinup in a Pack review!
Verdict: I love Gwynnie Bee, but I am still baffled as to why I got so many summer pieces this time around. It is officially Fall and I am in full on mustard yellow and velvet everything mode. Otherwise, my love for Gwynnie Bee still remains! I love that I can try styles and brands I may never have if I had to buy them outright. Gwynnie Bee is also ideal for people in between sizes or looking for pieces for work or a special occasions. The fact that you can closet pieces you choose yourself is also something I appreciate. I also love the fact that Gwynnie Bee offers free shipping, returns, and dry cleaning. It will take a lot for me to fall out of love with Gywnnie Bee!

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. Two of the pieces I reviewed retailed at $91.50, I do not have the cost for the Gabby Skye. That is roughly $3.50 less than my subscription for the two dresses. Imagine the value if I had returned these pieces and received even more!
