On the hunt for a great clothing rental service? I tried out Infinitely Loft, and I'm sharing a full review plus details on how it works!
I'm not gonna lie, I'm a clothing subscription box junkie especially the ones that offer rental subscription options. When it comes to trips and events, there are so many items I wear once or twice. I often want a special and unique piece for those experiences, but I don't love the idea of constantly buying items for one use. Enter……renting clothes from brands I love. I'm all about trying out different options, and when I heard that Infinitely Loft was launching…..I knew I had to try it. I'm a huge LOFT fan (see half my wardrobe for proof), and this box……checked all the boxes (pun intended).
Infinitely Loft: How it Works
Overall: Infinitely Loft is a customer curated rental subscription. There is no stylist, you are your OWN stylist. Meaning, you pick items YOU want to rent (with the option to buy them at a discounted rate if you love them). Infinitely Loft is available in straight sizing, petite, plus size and maternity clothing (pretty cool, right?!!). You'll begin by signing up, and adding a minimum of 8 items to your virtual closet. You can choose from any category and new clothing arrivals are added each week so that you have a ton of options. If there are particular items you'd like to receive first, you can flag them as priority (I got all three of my priority items in my first box). As you return items, you'll give your feedback on them. Did it fit well, did you wear it once or a million times? This will help to tailor options that you are presented with in the future.
Once you've finished wearing your items, you return all at once with a prepaid shipping envelope. When the shipping label is scanned and starts it journey home, you'll be able to receive your next set of items.
Price: Infinitely Loft costs $64.95 a month (that includes unlimited exchanges).
Number of Items: You'll receive 3 items at a time (from your closet).
How Often Can You Return / Swap: Swaps are unlimited. As long as you have enough items waiting in your virtual closet, the minute your return is mailed back…..you start the process of receiving 3 new items.
What I Got in The First Box: My goal was to try a few items I could wear over the holidays, and all three items I selected fit the bill.
These are the original items I received (and how much it would cost if I kept them).
You can shop them directly here if anything catches your eye:
Plaid Split Neck Dress (size medium): This dress is a classic. I feel like it's something I could wear for years, and easily dress up or down. I would definitely rent it again and am considering keeping it.
Leopard Print Swing Dress (size medium): This dress was a pleasant surprise. I loved it WAY more in person than I thought I would. It's super comfortable and versatile. I'm considering keeping for the discounted price.
Velour Jumpsuit (size large): I have to admit, this was the item I wasn't so sure about. It's SO SO SO comfortable and absolutely perfect for the holidays. I mean, hello it looks like something Santa would wear. This was a rental item, not a keeper for me. It feels pretty seasonal, and I know I'll wear it a handful of times before Christmas but probably not a ton after that.
Things to Consider: A few things I noticed, which I think are worth considering. Every item that Loft sells is not available for rental. I felt like there was a good variety, but it wasn't everything. Also, it seems obvious but…..these clothes will have been rented to other people. Did they seem worn down to me? No. And I'm pretty used to clothing rental options (I've used Gwynnie Bee and Rent the Runway in the past). But, I do know that some people feel uncomfortable with that. Just something to ask yourself before starting the service!
The Verdict: If you love Loft clothes, then I think that Infinitely Loft is worth every penny. I do love their clothes. And I love that it's a brand I trust, and a brand where I know my sizing. That makes it easy to decide on items I know will fit and flatter my pear shaped body perfectly. I love that there is great variety of sizing options, and I do like that I have the option of keeping the clothes I really like. The return process is simple and user friendly. Plus, I think I'll get great use out of the service. As someone who goes to events, and wears certain items once or twice? It helps me to save money on clothes I won't wear a ton (plus consider the fact that you'll usually have to dry clean those clothes, which adds up quickly). All in all? It's a win for me. I'll definitely be continuing to use the clothing rental service!
