Overview of Wantable
Jalem M. Getz founded Wantable in 2012, with the mission to create a clothing and accessory service that takes the wants and needs of its customers to heart. Getz calls Wantable the “match.com for products”, comparing the company to that of a matchmaking service. Wantable’s headquarters are in Milwaukee, US, and the brand employs around 140 professionals.
Their experienced stylists pick the most wantable clothing, including well known brands such as Kensie, Hudson, and Melissa McCarthy as well as their own clothing line. This Wantable style subscription review is summed up by these pros and cons:
- 20% discount when you buy 5/7 items in your box
- Receive a $25 credit when signing up
- Detailed body type and personal style questions to ensure you get your desired look and fit
- Subscription is not required, instead several subscription schedules available
- Free shipping and returns always
- Only pay for what you love, easily send the rest back or exchange
- Unable to see what is in your Wantable style edit before you receive it
- There have been several negative reviews concerning customer service, which may be mostly due to their customer support hours of 8am-5pm
- Because Wantable uses an automatic billing system, if any item you don’t want isn’t returned on time you will be charged for it
- There is a $20 styling fee that wouldn’t ordinarily incur when shopping online
- Does not ship to Canada
How Does Wantable Work?
This Wantable style subscription review believes the company’s service is personalized, straightforward and cost effective.
- Take the Quiz. Choose which edit you’d like to receive: Women’s style, Women’s active or Men’s active and take the quiz.
- Visit the Stream. Head to the stream to view the latest arrivals and add the ones you love to your edit. Or leave it up to their expert stylists.
- Order Delivery. Your items are picked based on your unique needs so there is a $20 styling fee. Your edit is then shipped for free.
- Try Before You Buy. Upon arrival you have 5 days to try on what’s inside.
- Keep What You Love, Return What You Don’t. Return or exchange for no extra fee. You only pay for what you keep. Whatever you do keep, the $20 styling fee is credited back and applied to your order – and if you keep 5 or more items in your box, you receive 20% off.
This Wantable style subscription review has found there are four subscription options available: Ongoing (your next order is shipped once the previous one is closed), Every Month, Every 2 Months, or Every 3 Months. But, you also have the option not to subscribe and can even purchase “unboxed items” individually.
Wantable Style Edit
First impression of the Women’s Style Edit in this Wantable style subscription review? The quiz is extremely thorough, including questions on how often you purchase clothes considered to be Trendy, Business, Casual or Date Night as well as how you feel about styles such as Classic, Glam, Rock, Boho and Casual Chic. Based on the clothes presented in each of those categories, I’m definitely excited to see what outfits they will curate for me.
Inside your Women’s Style Edit you’ll find 7 items, curated by style experts and handpicked to suit your unique taste. These items include clothing, accessories and jewelry. Inside the box you’ll also find advice from your personal stylist on how to properly wear and accessorize these items to flatter your body and make you feel confident.
Wantable Active Edit
This Wantable style subscription review was impressed with the entire ordering process for the Women’s Active Edit You are given a scale to rate your item preferences – things you want to receive in your subscription box, like wantable intimates or sports bras.
You’re also asked to rate on a scale of frequency the types of activities you do – even if it’s mostly lounging. Because let’s be real here, the concept of “athleisure” wasn’t born from “activewear” without good reason.
In your Women’s Active Edit you can receive an assortment of items from socks to leggings, in bright or muted colors, depending on your color preferences. The curated outfits are nothing short of those Instagram outfits coveted by many.
Wantable Men’s Active Edit
From performance to loungewear, this Wantable style edit delivers high quality activewear in current patterns and styles. What this Wantable style subscription review finds is great about the Men’s Active Edit is the variation in products available. From sports gear to couch cozies, Wantable outfits men in sizes S-XXL that will fuel their self confidence and help them try a new trend.
I’ve never met a man who actually likes to shop. Of course this isn’t true for all men, but the extra plus is that for men who don’t like to shop, Wantable clothing is delivered right to their door, saving them a trip to the mall to do an activity they’d rather not. For those who do like to shop because they like looking good – Wantable is a great way to try new styles every month.
How Much is Wantable?
- Wantable prices are at their minimum $20 monthly for the styling fee of each curated box. However, the $20 gets credited back to you if you decide to keep any of the pieces in your chosen edit.
- When taking the quiz for each edit, you’ll be asked to specify the price range in which you’d prefer your products. This typically ranges from $50-$100 per piece.
Wantable Reviews: What Do Customers Think?
This Wantable style subscription review browsed the Better Business Bureau (BBB) complaint page, which yields various concerns from customers regarding the quality and price of their products as well as some who did not receive their order and were still charged for it. Wantable customer service handles every complaint on the page professionally, in most cases bending over backwards to make the customer happy. Wantable has an A+ BBB rating and it’s easy to see why.
This Wantable style subscription review was skeptical when it came to how men would receive the subscription box service, having added a Men’s Active Edit to their options in 2016. Reviews on and off the site report the Men’s Active Edit to have a good variety of pieces, to have been easy to order and to be of good quality for the price.
The review site highya included reviews from a mixed bag of happy and unhappy customers. Some were pleased with the price and quality of the products and some believe you can find the same items for a better price at Walmart. One particular review made an excellent point, that each box comes with a $20 credit (the styling fee, credited back to you if you keep one item), which is quite the incentive to keep the subscription.
Is Wantable Worth It?
We will be straightforward in this Wantable style subscription review. There are a ton of people who love this subscription box. But, there have been a few reviews complaining about the quality of the clothing as well as how returns and customer service is handled. However, in reading Wantable customer service replies to these reviews, the company is more than willing to work with the customer to adjust any incorrect or unfair charges.
Wantable also takes the pressure off by giving you a choice of subscription plans or the option to buy unboxed (single) items. It may not be worth buying unboxed items from Wantable unless they are part of the Wantable clothing line. Big brands like Cupcakes & Cashmere (a brand Wantable includes in their boxes) may be better if bought off the brand’s website.
In terms of risk, Wantable’s subscription service comes in low on the chart. Because of the $25 credit Wantable gives you for signing up, your first order’s styling fee is covered. This Wantable style subscription review feels that technically, if you don’t like anything you receive in your edit, you can return all the items for free and will have tried the service 100% free of cost. On top of that, cancelling a subscription can be done at any time without a penalty. With all this in mind, we’d say Wantable is definitely worth giving a try.
