Yesterday I shared on Instagram Stories that my mom helped me do a major closet purge. I am so glad to not be overwhelmed by clothes, that everything in my closet fits, and that I love it all! Since starting to use Gwynnie Bee's clothing rental service, I have noticed that I haven't been buying many clothes.
If you haven't tried Gwynnie Bee, I want to encourage you to try them today. Right now they are offering a month for FREE with my affiliate link so really, there is no reason not to try them out. You will get a month of clothes without paying a cent! I did a trial in November and liked them so much that I have been a paying customer every since. They offer sizes XS to 3XL, so they have something for all body types.
10 Benefits to Renting Clothes
Here are 10 benefits to clothing rental and why now is the perfect time to check out this service.
Save time: With renting clothes, you don't have to spend time shopping for the perfect clothes. With Gwynnie Bee, you simply select what you like and they come right to you. Free shipping both ways. Easy, peasy.
Save money: This is a huge one because you save in so many ways when you rent clothes instead of buying them. First, you save by not buying clothes that you end up not wearing a lot. You also save money by not buying lower quality clothes and then having to replace them. Furthermore you save money because you aren't compelled to buy many clothes in the first place because you are getting clothes in the mail all the time. And, if you have a special event you save by renting clothes instead of buying something you would only wear once. (I have several friends who have commented that using Gwynnie Bee is perfect for wedding season!)
Feel confident: There's something about well-made, new clothes that boost a girl's confidence. When I recently attended Mom 2.0, I wore a lot of clothes from Gwynnie Bee. I felt so confident and pretty in everything – like this dress I wore when meeting Natalie Morales.
Try new brands: Renting clothes allows you to try brands that might be new to you. Gwynnie Bee has introduced me to a bunch of new brands, which has been awesome.
Test new styles: Renting clothes gives you the freedom to try new styles of clothes that you might not have otherwise. I have broadened the clothing styles that I wear because of renting from Gwynnie Bee.
Refresh for a new season: With summer upon us, most of of wardrobes could use a few new items. Instead of buying clothes, why not try Gwynnie Bee free for a month and get some new items for free? Renting is a great option for updating your wardrobe seasonally without breaking the bank.
Reduce closet clutter: YES! You don't need as many clothes when you are continuously getting new clothes through a rental service. This reduction in clutter in your wardrobe is so freeing.
Wear more trendy clothes: I am always hesitant to buy trendy clothes because I know the styles are going to change and then garment will just sit in my closet. By renting clothes, I can wear the trendiest stuff and feel great in it, all without buying any of it. This dress with its tie sleeves was super trendy. While I probably wouldn't have bought it, I had so much fun wearing it for a party at Mom 2.0.
Always have something new to wear: Normal people aren't constantly buying new clothes, but when you rent clothes, you literally have new stuff to wear every week. I love getting compliments at work and when I go out on my clothes, and 9 times out of 10 I reply, “thank you, it's a rental!”
It's fun: Seriously. This isn't the most practical benefit, but it is totally true. Renting clothes is so fun!
