The Ms. Collection is a monthly clothing rental subscription for women. Your stylist puts a pack together based on your style profile and you keep it for as long as you like. When you are done wearing those pieces you send them back in the included pre-paid envelope. You have the option of buying any item at a special member discount price just in case you can’t bear to part with it.
The Ms. Collection has several different plans to best fit your needs. They also have The Mr. Collection for men.
This is the review for The Ms. Collection Premium Once a Month plan, which sends 4 items for $69 per month (plus free shipping).
Each pack includes 3-4 pieces of quality, designer, casual clothing for your everyday look. When you sign up, you answer questions about your style (size, colors, patterns, clothing type, etc.). An actual stylist puts your pack together so, even though your pieces are a surprise, they should work for you. You can leave feedback for your stylist to help make your next pack even better.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

The Ms. Collection Premium Once a Month Plan January 2019 Review
This month, my stylist Kortney sent some items that work both for business casual or date night looks. My pack includes a cute dress, a cozy sweater, and two other tops. Let's style these pieces!
The info card includes some instructions for the pack, a handwritten note from my stylist, and the retail value and member price.
B Collection by Bobeau Sierra Side Knot Tee in Military Olive, M - Retail Value $68, Member Price $54.40
You guys know I love olive tones so I was excited to unpack this top. The material is from Bobeau's "Cozy" line and is made of 75%rayon/21% poly/4% Spandex, making it stretchy, soft, and fuzzy. It's also very warm and great for layering. The balloon sleeves are fun and the knot detail is perfectly placed. It seems to elongate my torso without adding bulk. I found myself reaching for this top over and over while I had it and missing it once I sent it back.
Jack By BB Dakota Hey Ms Carter Lace Front Sweater in Light Heather Grey, M - Retail Value $80, Member Price $64
This is the perfect chunky sweater for me! It's easy to pop on over a tank and jeans and is just the right amount of boxy. The 100% acrylic thread is loose-knit, so it's breathable, but thick, so it's cozy and warm. The lace-up neckline is so cute and can be left wide open or tightened up for more coverage and warmth. This is another item I kept reaching for.
Downeast Ribbed Midi Dress, M - Retail Value $49.99, Member Price $39.99
Here's the dress my stylist included for either a business casual or date night look. Since John received a date night look in his pack this month as well (review coming soon!), we just had to go out to show them off! I'm shocked by how affordable this dress is, even at full retail value, because it is beautifully constructed. The ribbed shell is made of a cotton/poly/Spandex mix and is supportive with a bit of stretch. The body is fully lined with a polyester lining that is sewn into place. All of the interior seams are finished and there is even a panel of smooth ribbon along the back of the zipper to protect your skin. The darting along the outside is super flattering and highlights the best of the curves.
ASTR Estelle Tie Neck Top in Navy Multi Floral, M - Retail Value $85, Member Price $68
I'm digging this slightly abstract, dark floral. The shades of olive, burgundy, and mauve look beautiful against the navy background. The fabric is 100% rayon that looks and feels somewhat like natural silk; it's matte and slightly sheer with a hint of stretch for comfort. The sleeves are balloon style and have button cuffs at the wrist which look great down but could also be rolled up easily. I really like tie-neck details and this one can be worn untied (though the ties are a bit long), tied at the neck, or tied in a bow below the V in the neckline. Gosh, I love this piece too! It looks fantastic worn with my burgundy leather jacket.
Each pack includes a pre-paid return envelope. When you are done with your pieces, just pop them in here and drop it off at the post office. The Ms. Collection will process your return and you’ll be ready to go for your next pack. (If you are purchasing anything, just leave them out of your return package.)
A note about cleaning: You don’t have to clean the pieces before sending them back. The Ms. Collection has everything cleaned once the pieces are returned. I didn’t notice any smell (including fragranced detergent which is good for those with sensitive skin), stains, or signs of wear. Actually, everything was in perfect condition!
The Verdict: The Ms. Collection did such a wonderful job of styling my pack this month. This may be my best pack yet! Each piece was well-made and perfect for me and my lifestyle. I love that my stylist Kortney included a versatile dress that was great for a date but worked well for meeting with clients too. This month, I was so tempted to want to purchase everything, but I told myself that I should wait and see what I get next month. The total retail value of this pack was $282.99 and for a rental price of $69 with free shipping, I feel like I got my value out of it.

Value Breakdown: Since this is a clothing rental service, the value really comes from being able to change up and try new, styled looks every month. I also get a chance to wear high-quality brands that I wouldn’t be able to spend this kind of money on often. There is always the option to buy an item for a discounted price if you love it. Basically here is what I paid to rent each item for the month (based on retail price):
- B Collection by Bobeau Tee - $16.58
- Jack By BB Dakota Sweater - $19.51
- Downeast Dress - $12.19
- ASTR Tie Neck Top - $20.73
