Gwynnie Bee FAQ

How does Gwynnie Bee work?

When you get started with 50% off of you first month, first you’ll answer a few questions about brands and sizes you currently wear. Then you’ll create an account and enter a credit card number to get started.

From there, you’ll take a styling quiz and get matched to an editor who most reflects your personal style. Browse your personalized collections and the whole Gwynnie Bee catalog; you need to add at least 6 items to your closet so they can ship your first box. You can continue to add and remove items from your closet to shape which items you receive in the future!

Every time you return a box, a new one will be sent with items from your virtual closet, as long as your membership is active. You can also purchase items outright if you like. (Gwynnie Bee even has a rewards program where you can earn points to apply toward purchases!)


How much does Gwynnie Bee cost?

Gwynnie Bee starts at $49/month to rent one item at a time, up to $199/month to rent 10 items at a time. Shipping and returns are free, and you can rent an unlimited number of boxes per month (a new box will ship as soon as you return your current one, as long as your account is in good standing). You can start your first month for 50% off


Is Gwynnie Bee just for plus sizes? What sizes does Gwynnie Bee offer?

Gwynnie Bee is not just for plus sizes! They now offer items for women in sizes 0-32.


What types of items can you rent with Gwynnie Bee?

Gwynnie Bee offers a really wide range of apparel for rent, including everything from pants and tops, to dresses and jumpsuits, and even jackets and blazers.

While we tend to think of fancier dry-clean-only clothing when we think of rental, they actually offer more casual options too, including jeans, tank tops, and denim jackets. It’s versatile enough to shift with you through the seasons or as your personal style changes.

They don’t officially have maternity wear in their catalog, but some reviewers have had success with renting fit and flare dresses made from stretch fabrics to accommodate their pregnancies.

Gwynnie Bee only rents clothing at this time; jewelry, handbags, and other accessories are not available.


Can I cancel Gwynnie Bee online?
Yes - you can cancel online or over the phone.

I've been a GB subscriber for four years, and just can't imagine my life without it. It's just so much fun! I've always been awful about buying clothes that I end up never wearing because it's not comfortable, or I get a stain, or I gain or lose weight. This never ending closet is a dream come true. I wear it, I roll it up, put it in a bag, send it back when I have five things in the bag (you get points that way that you use toward buying an item you love) and always have something new to wear. My mailbox is big enough for a bag, so it's really easy to just leave it for the letter carrier. They don't even have to receive a return before sending a new item. You just notify via the app or site that you're returning it. I do that as soon as something goes in the bag. In four years I have NEVER received a single item that was stained. ONCE I got a dress that just looked too worn out. ONCE in four years. I love the clothing and without the commitment of ownership I've tried and loved styles that I never would have worn. There's a huge range of designers and brands and they're always adding new ones. I love not having to launder anything. I love wearing something new almost every day. I don't understand why everyone isn't doing this!

I tried this service for the free month subscription, and while I still like it in theory, I had trouble filling my "closet" with enough clothes in my style, and ended up only trying 3 items, anyway. I had no trouble cancelling, and a month later have had no weird charges pop up, so I'd recommend giving the free trial a shot if you're thinking about it.

Gwynnie Bee is my first subscription service and I have enjoyed it thus far. My first shipment arrived really quickly and the dress fit perfectly. I'm excited to try on more dresses, especially some of the Taylor Dresses that I would never have been able to try out.

I don't know who Gwynnie Bee is trying to cater to, but I'd argue it's not plus sized women with style. Most of the pieces I got in the 1 month free trial were ugly and definitely not worth the price you could buy them for. It looks like it's a hit or a miss and they have very few trendy or pretty plus sized clothes. You'd think they'd get stuff from popular places like Torrid or Lane Bryant but they don't. Most brands are weird names. Was very disappointed.

I've only subscribed to Gwynnie Bee for a few months now and at first they shipped the clothes out pretty fast. But lately it's been taking longer, I've had two incidences where the items were "lost"? One was a coat they were supposed to ship and it showed it was in my "At Home" section but I never received it. I emailed them and they apologized and added an item upgrade to my closet for 2 weeks. Mysteriously the coat showed up 3 days later, it was really odd. Today I noticed there's a shirt in my "At Home" section for over 2 weeks, I've never received it and the tracking says label created. I emailed and he said I should contact the shipping dept but never gave me an email or number or anything. Then said it'd take 2-3 days to resolve it and added an item upgrade for a week. In theory it's really awesome, but sometimes the clothes you receive are so worn, the fabric shrunk and piling. I've received 2 jackets with holes in the pockets, when they're supposed to fix any problems. I don't know I feel the novelty is wearing off really fast and it's too expensive. Plus the clothes are as steeply discounted as you'd think they would be for used clothing. $163 for a used dress? You're out of your mind or $61 for a used jacket is a lot when I can get a brand new jacket for that price. I do like that it allows me to try brands I normally wouldn't get to try, but have been waiting for some items for 3 months.

"Terrible Cancellation Policy"
Mar 27, 2021
I paid for a month. Got a box. Decided that the available styles weren't right for me and the pricing was a bit high for used clothing. I decided to cancel after receiving my first box. Even though I had 3 more weeks of service that I paid for, I had to call customer service to find out that if you cancel, you do not receive any more boxes regardless of when your subscription ends. I think this is a terrible policy that should at the very least be DISCLOSED to people looking to cancel even when they do so online.

Disgusting! I got a box and all three items inside were well worn and two were stained! I did not dare wear any of the items and then I requested my $$ back and they refused. I would never recommend this company to anyone ever.

I've been a subscriber for years. Since Gwynnie Bee expanded to include straight sizes, the selection for plus sizes seems to have shrunk. Brands that used to go up to a size 26/28 or 4x are now only offered up to 22 or 3x. Additionally, turnaround time is much longer these days, so that I'm not getting as many pieces for my monthly fee. I'm increasingly likely to receive a belted dress without the belt, or an item that is stained or smells strongly.

I've been a Gwynnie Bee subscriber for almost 2 years, and I love it. The brands are a lot of higher end brands -- some exclusive, many that are Nordstrom brands. I don't really ever purchase anything, and I basically use it to have a constantly rotating trendy wardrobe. I get sick of clothes quickly, so it's more cost-effective for me to do this than to constantly buy new clothes. I have 7 items at a time, and I figure it's the cost of buying 1 or 2 items each month, or a whole bunch of cheaper items. It actually saves me money in the long run. While there are occasionally some misses that I send back right away, there are enough hits that it's totally worth it. After a while, you learn which brands fit you and which don't, and it is easier to get things that fit all the time. If you're looking for something where you'll buy everything, this probably isn't the box for you. But if you're like me and want new things to wear every few weeks, it's amazing.
