Thanks to the internet, people have been shopping from their sofas for years. God bless you, internet. There is nothing better than shopping for new gear without being required to interact with other humans. No fuss, no muss, no pants needed. Just a few clicks and BAM—pants on your porch.
There’s really only one problem with buying clothes online—it’s impossible to try them on before you purchase them.
We’ve all purchased that seemingly perfect pair of jeans online, only to slip them on and realize they are more of a denim tourniquet than a fashion statement. Shipping them back to the distributor means printing a label and paying additional shipping fees, which is a total new clothes buzzkill.
There are several “box” clothing services, like StitchFix and TrunkClub, that offer no obligation to buy with free shipping both ways, but those services come with a “styling fee,” and you don’t get to pick your own clothes. Sorry, computer styling algorithm, but I don’t do horizontal stripes or whatever is going on with these weird, fluffy shorts.
Well, once again, Amazon proves why we have all pledged our un-dying internet love to them with the introduction of their new program, Prime Wardrobe. Prime Wardrobe allows Amazon Prime customers to select their own clothing at no cost, with free shipping both ways.
Much like other “box” services, you have seven days to decide if the items are right for you. Keep what you want and ship back the rest. Discounts from 10-20% are given on items you decide to purchase depending on the number of pieces you keep.
That’s right, pick your own stuff, don’t pay for it until you decide you love it, ship it back for free if you don’t.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to shop. You complete me, Amazon.
