We Love Gwynnie Bee
Approximately 60% of our female clients and 40% of our male clients are plus size, yet a majority of the clothing donations we receive do not fall in the plus size range.
You can imagine, then, how excited we were when we were approached by the outstanding people at Gwynnie Bee, a monthly subscription clothing rental service for women sizes 10–32, to be their nonprofit partner and the recipient of beautiful clothing donations in sizes we so desperately need.
“Gwynnie Bee is thrilled to support Working Wardrobes in helping to empower women during their job search and interview process,” said Gwynnie Bee CEO, Christine Hunsicker. “Sometimes the right clothes can make all the difference in how confident you look and feel.”
We love Gwynnie Bee’s business model and the service it provides. For a monthly subscription fee, women have access to the company’s entire clothing collection with unlimited shipping.
Customers build their virtual closet, select the number of different outfits they want to try, choose their favorite looks, and select their size. Gwynnie Bee ships the outfits in beautifully wrapped packages so that it feels like you’re getting a present every time in the mail.
Some of the fabulous outfits from the company's Winter Lookbook are featured to the right.
Gwynnie Bee’s customers constantly have lovely outfits in rotation, typically with three items at home at any given time and an average of nine to 12 new pieces delivered each month, so they can wear fresh looks every few days. If something doesn’t work, the company provides a pre-paid return bag for easy shipping. And if you fall in love with something, you can buy it for 20% - 60% off of retail!
Not only are exchanges unlimited, but Gwynnie Bee handles all of the cleaning under very strict quality control guidelines. Each and every piece it ships looks and feels like new.
Gwynnie Bee offers a day-to-day opportunity to leave the house feeling like you’ve dressed the way you want people to see you. They help women discover, experience, and enjoy great clothes without limitations. And now, our plus size clients are going to have the same opportunity, without limitations!
“You deserve to feel like the awesome person you are,” said Melissa Robinson, Business Development Lead for Gwynnie Bee. “You deserve to look your best while you’re getting back on your feet. We are so excited to be able to step in and help.”

Gwynnie Bee, you deserve an enormous round of applause for helping us raise the self-esteem and dignity of our clients.
