Have you seen your Amazon Prime account advertising Prime Wardrobe? Ours was and it peaked my interest! I am historically an online shopper (since that became a thing) and have also been a fan of Stitch Fix for several years now. I was intrigued by the whole concept so I decided to try it out and let you know how it went!
Things to know:
- While it kind of feels like Stitch Fix, it is not a styling service. You pick out the things that you want to add to your box to try on at home.
- Not everything on Amazon is part of Prime Wardrobe
- You have to have Amazon Prime to do it (but really, who doesn’t have Prime these days?!)
- You can get multiple sizes & colors of the same item to see what fits/ looks best! This was my favorite part.
- You don’t pay until you keep the items. That way when you are trying on 4 pairs of shoes, you are not paying upfront for all of them and then returning the 3 that don’t work/ don’t fit!
- It is currently not available for everyone but you can request it here if you want to try it out!
- Returns are free and come with a label in the box for simple mailing. (Although it is UPS which isn’t as convenient as USPS is for me.)
So I spent some time under the Prime Wardrobe section of Amazon and added some maternity items to my cart! I also added some new leather Chaco shoes I had been eyeing. I am between a size 5 and 6 in Chacos and it really depends on the shoe! It was fun to be able to add both knowing that one of them would work for me and the other would be sent back! Anyways, without further adieu, here are the five items I got in my first Prime Wardrobe Box!
Tart Collections Women’s Maternity Marsha Criss Cross Front Bodice Maxi – $176
Okay, the color and pattern on this dress are winners in my book! I wanted to keep this dress so bad but unfortunately there were a couple fit issues that took it out of the running. If it was $20 I would have kept it but at $176, it really needed to fit right because I don’t want to play around with alterations at that point! The dress was several inches too long (short girl problems) and my boobs/ bra kept popping out at every movement (I don’t like always adjusting myself!)
Maternal America Women’s Maternity Scoop Neck Front Tie Dress – $137
Bruce was taking photos of me tying this dress and he told me that I looked like I was wrapping up a present! I felt the same way! Our little girl is a gift and I am more than happy to put a big bow on her head (more bows WILL come outside of the womb!) I really liked the style of this dress but the bow was hard to tie in a way that looked good and the bottom fabric appears to wrinkle easily (which is bad for me because I am lazy with my clothing care – I’m a washer, dryer, & hang girl) While the fit was right, I sent this one back too.
RocaWear Women’s R3010 – $30
I’ve been wanting a fun/ crazy pair of sunglasses but these ones were a little too off the wall. Haha. I loved them on my head but on my face they were a little too bug-eyed! Oh well, that’s why it was so fun to be able to try them on!!
Chaco Women’s Wayfarer Sandal – $130
I’d been drooling over these for some time so I added the size 5 & size 6 to my Prime Wardrobe box! The fives were too tight (especially with my preggo feet!) and the sixes fit perfectly! I was so glad to be able to sit down and try them both on just like I would in a store! This is the huge Prime Wardrobe win in my book – being able to add multiple sizes and colors and not get charged for everything you try on!
That’s that! After I tried things on, I put them back in the box they came in and attached the label to the box. I logged back into Amazon and finished my checkout order so that they knew what I was keeping and returning. Then I dropped the box off at a UPS drop off. Easy, peasy!
Have you tried Amazon Wardrobe Prime? Do you have any questions I can help you answer?
Lauren Townsend says
Thanks for sharing your experience! I really love the idea of Prime Wardrobe, but I’m a budget shopper and most of the stuff included is more than I would want to pay. You look gorgeous in both dresses!
Emily of Em Busy Living says
Trying on different sizes is definitely a plus with this! I haven’t tried this service but I will keep it in mind. I love how much Prime membership offers!
I’ve never even heard of Prime Wardrobe! Now I want to check it out!
Elizabeth Mayberry says
Yeah! Kind of fun!! I like that you don’t have to pay for anything and you get 7 days to try stuff on and send it back!
Jenna Condon says
I had no idea about Prime Wardrobe. I love the pieces you found!! I love the deals of Amazon, so I’ll definitely be checking this out. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Elizabeth Mayberry says
Yeah! Thanks so much! You really should look into it!
Oh wow! That sounds so great! Although I can’t even imagine spending $170 on a dress. Haha. #CheapGirlProblems My wedding dress wasn’t even that much. Haha! <3
Elizabeth Mayberry says
hahaha! I know. It would have to be perfect! That’s why I returned it! lol. But I picked that for my box just because I wanted to try it on! You can get MUCH cheaper items to add to your box! hahah!

This is amazing! How have I never heard of this! The ONLY thing I don’t like about online shopping is having to guess my size.
