I saw this post on Emmie’s blog and I was both intrigued by Gwynnie Bee and hesitant to join. Given that I’m on the larger size of a 22/24, I wasn’t sure it would work. However, many of the dresses and clothes available are from places I buy from, and I knew, for the most part, the items would probably fit fine.
I joined just before the cut off date, and received my first dress just a couple of days later. It wasn’t my favorite of the ones I selected, but I decided to wear it to work anyway. I paired it with a shrug, since I can’t go sleeveless at work.
Forgive the bad shot, I forgot to take one until the end of the day. It was tighter than I am usually comfortable with, and not very flattering. The pattern stretching across my belly? Not good. But, I wore it, to give it a fair chance. I’m hoping the next item is a better fit, but so far I’m happy. If their selection increased, I would definitely upgrade to the multiple items home at a time plan.
The customer service has been outstanding. I loved the way my first package was wrapped with a personal, handwritten note.
Any business doing things this well should be applauded. Especially one serving the plus size community.
