So when I first heard about Amazon Prime Wardrobe, I thought do we really need another method to buy more clothes? Basically it’s a service available to Prime members that allows you to try items for free at home, and they will only charge you for the things you keep. So it’s $0 upfront. But if you don’t return the items within 7 days, you’ll be charged for everything you ordered. So it’s probably a service best for those who are good about returning packages. It’s sort of like those try-at-home subscription style service but you choose what you want (with a minimum of 3 items per box). You could also have a stylist pick out clothes for you for a fee, but we’ll see if that really catches on. And though I wouldn’t personally use Amazon Prime Wardrobe to buy more clothes (I already have enough on my wishlist from slow fashion brands), I did take the opportunity to try out different sleep sacks for my baby since I wasn’t sure which one she’d like best. She was super picky when it came to which swaddle she liked best (we tried 3 different kinds and her favorite was the Halo Sleep Sack Swaddle). This time I’m going to try out the sleep sacks before committing to buying one.
Well their marketing works because even though I was only planning to keep one sleepsack, I ended up with two (granted one is a larger size for her to grow into). The one she liked are the ones by Burt’s Bees. The package itself comes with a return shipping label and a resealable plastic mailer so the return is super easy. Just indicate on your Amazon prime wardrobe page what pieces you’ll be keeping and then return the rest via UPS. Amazon will also send you reminder emails for when it’s time to send things back. Once you return it, the items you kept will be charged to your card. I guess it’s not too different from just buying it outright and then returning something for a refund, but at least you don’t have to pay the upfront cost.
Has anyone else tried Amazon Prime Wardrobe and what did you think?
