You know my love for buying clothes on Amazon runs deep – so when they debuted the new Amazon Prime Wardrobe program, I was pumped. But the whole thing is a little confusing – what is Amazon Prime Wardrobe? Why should I care? How much does it cost? What can I order? Don’t worry… I’ve got answers to all your questions about Amazon Prime Wardrobe, what I love about it, what I don’t, and the ONE thing I’m keeping from my first Prime Wardrobe Box…
What is Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
It’s a feature of your Prime membership that allows you to try on up to 8 pieces of clothing, shoes or accessories if they’re marked as Wardrobe Eligible on Amazon. You then have 7 days to try on and decide what you want to keep. You can also order mens, kids and baby clothes, too, so if you aren’t sure on sizing for something, Prime Wardrobe is the way to go!
How much does Amazon Prime Wardrobe Cost?
It’s FREE with a Prime membership. So, you’re probably already covered ;). They charge you for the items you want to keep at the end of your 7 day trial period.
Who chooses the items I’ll receive from Prime Wardrobe?
YOU! No stylist, which guarantees you’ll get what you actually want.
What are the pros of Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
- I love being able to try on in my own home
- Amazon doesn’t charge your card when you order your wardrobe – you only pay for what you keep when you decide to keep it (within 7 calendar days of receiving your box)
- You get to pick what they send you – you’re your own stylist!
- The return shipping label is already printed & ready to go – no printing needed
The best reason I think you should try Amazon Prime Wardrobe is this… it’s a great way to try really expensive designer stuff without having it hit your credit card. So, say you want to buy a pair of nice jeans (and you need them!) but you want to try a couple brands and sizes. You don’t really want to go to a store and spend the whole afternoon trying on jeans in a dressing room with bad lighting – I get it. So, with Prime Wardrobe, you can order up to 8 pairs of jeans (or shoes, or bags, or whatever) for FREE, and try them on in your own home. If you ordered 8 pairs of $150 jeans from anywhere else, you’d have $1,200 hostage with a retailer, and then you’d have to wait for the product to get back to the retailer and then wait for them to refund your money. Takes out all the hassle! It’s literally a no-risk way to try clothes.
What are the cons of Amazon Prime Wardrobe?
Honestly, the program isn’t without its flaws. There have been tons of items I’ve browsed under the “Prime Wardrobe” header that aren’t wardrobe eligible in my size. So, your options aren’t unlimited – not a deal breaker, just mildly annoying when you find an item tagged “Prime Wardrobe” that isn’t eligible in your size.
Is there a dollar limit? An item limit?
No dollar minimum to have a Prime Wardrobe order shipped and you only need 3 items to have your Prime Wardrobe order shipped. You can have up to 8 items shipped at a time.
My Prime Wardrobe Order Try On
So my first Prime Wardrobe Order was a major BUST… I chose a lot of things that were top-rated but only ended up keeping one. Here are the seven pieces I had delivered:
grey turtleneck tee – small, fits tts as it’s supposed to be drapey
pink pointelle sweater – XS, I should’ve gotten a small
short sleeve dress – wearing a small, runs a little big
Girlfriend Jeans – wearing a 2, runs large
bralette – wearing a medium, runs small
olive joggers – wearing a small, they run HUGE
ivory cardigan – one size fits all
and the things I’m wearing in the try-on that weren’t part of my Wardrobe Box: dark AG Jeans (these are Wardrobe eligible so a great chance to try them!) // Converse // taupe open toe booties // grey tee
And one thing not included here but also Wardrobe Eligible… the ultimate best pair of workout leggings you can get on Amazon – try them and see if you love them!
The only thing I kept from the try-on was THIS.
