  1. I’ve had a terrible experience with this service and I’m beyond disappointed, as a longtime Bloomingdales shopper.

    First of all, there’s no guarantee that you get the items you’re interested in. Their structure is to have clients fill a closet with items they are interested in and select some ‘priority’ items. These priority items may or may not be available and, they won’t tell you what they are sending your way until it’s been sent. So, say you have an event coming up that you would like to wear a specific dress for. There is *no* guarantee whatsoever that you will get that item or any way other than generally labeling it as a priority. You cannot even rank priorities.

    I have an issue with paying $150 for items when I don’t have much of a say in what arrives in my box. Especially when that money could go towards buying the items you actually need. The purchase prices don’t even match prices on the Bloomingdales website, making it seem like a scam. For example, I ordered a pair of J Brand jeans that were priced at $270 with 10% ‘MyList discount” but they are on Bloomingdales.com for $208 currently…

    The delivery time is quite slow, as well. Their customer service is also abysmal. I wrote in with some feedback regarding my concerns and received quite the condescending response in return, suggesting that I simply didn’t understand how the service worked.

    Needless to say, I’m cancelling (unfortunately, I’m locked in until the end of the month). But I don’t recommend wasting your money or time with this service until they get their act together–if they ever do. Plenty of better options out there.

  2. Not interested in any clothing rentals.

  3. Not everyone is into clothing rental, but I suggest you review it for those of us that do enjoy this option. I have Nuuly, Armoire, and LeTote. For me (city dweller in a very small apartment) clothing rental has been perfect for me. Instead of stuffing my closets with cheap clothing that I end up getting rid of anyway, I get to experiment with quality, trendy clothing without the commitment. I do purchase shoes and jeans which I am extremely particular about but I love the flexibility of clothing rental for everything else.

  4. Yes, please review this! I’m interested to see what they offer since it’s a lower monthly fee than Rent the Runway unlimited.

  5. If I had a monthly budget of $149 for clothes, I’d use it to buy just one piece in person there that I really wanted and that fit well. Personally, I wouldn’t wear anything from the photo (except the black t-shirt, which I can get from a catalog like Blair or Woman Within for $20). None of the jackets and pants in the photo are corporate-appropriate, and that’s exactly the category where I have to shop carefully and get a great match.

    • I wouldn’t wear anything from the photo either because it’s all neutral (I strongly dislike neutrals).

      I can’t shop in physical stores though because nowhere around here carries my size. If you are 8-16 you are golden, here, but if you are any smaller you are out of luck unless you want to shop in the juniors’ section, and I don’t because I’m 42.

      However, I don’t think this is quite the right subscription model for me, either. I need something more like “order it, try it on, keep it or send it back.” Not quite like Trunk Club or Stitch Fix because honestly the stylists there don’t get me (If I could do Trunk Club or Stitch Fix but bypass the stylists, that might be something). I have a lot of clothing storage space (I live with one other person in a 4 bedroom house) so I don’t need to rent for space saving reasons.

      But what I’m looking for is more like those subscriptions (i.e., Stitch Fix) than clothing purchases and returns from random stores so I wouldn’t have a charge for the whole purchase sitting on my credit card statement until I got around to making returns (and didn’t get marked as one of those bad customers who returns too much).

      In the meantime I’m just going to hit Kohl’s online for Black Friday so even if one or two things I choose don’t really work, it will have been really cheap. Quality may be less than Bloomingdale’s but I can buy some bright colors and not spend a lot.

      • Hi Ragan, have you tried Amazon Prime Wardrobe? That might work for you as they do carry a ton of smaller sizes and you pick what you want to try on. Love your reviews, thanks!

  6. I actually signed up for this to try it out and canceled within the first month. The clothes seem “used” so they are not new with tags. They’ve been dry cleaned and recycled but if you want to keep them they give you a discounted price but nowhere near a realistic discount. I ordered 3 dresses and 1 skirt and the “discounted” price was still $300+ for each item. The fit on all items was off since you have to guesstimate your size. And I think for that price I’ll stick to going into Neiman Marcus (my equivalent to Bloomingdale’s) and try on items I want for that price point. I ended up mailing all my items back and canceled before the auto renew charged my credit card again.

  7. No. $149 for four pieces at a time seems crazy for my lifestyle.
