Amazon Try Before You Buy is free to all Amazon Prime members. Their program offers you a convenient way to shop for clothes, shoes, jewelry, and even accessories without even leaving home. You only keep what you love and returning Prime Wardrobe orders is always free! 👏🏻

Once your order arrives, you’ll get to try on your handpicked pieces from the comfort of your home and you only keep what you love and send back what you don’t.

In fact, if your order ends up being a flop you can send everything back totally FREE which means it won’t even cost you a penny! 👏🏻

Even better, you’ll always receive the best of any applicable discounts so if Amazon is offering a special promotion for the item(s) you’re keeping at the time you order or even after, they’ll honor the best price for you. 🤩

Hip Tip: Try Amazon Personal Shopper to save you even more time. A stylist will curate an order based on your needs and you’ll get to approve everything before it ships! I tried it and love it!

*Note: The Personal Shopper service fee is $4.99/month and can be canceled at any time. 

I love using Amazon Try Before You Buy because it makes shopping comfortable and convenient!

Whether you’re a busy mom, a college student, or a business professional who has zero time for in-store shopping, it doesn’t get any easier than Prime Wardrobe! You’ll get to bring the fitting room right to your home!

I’m a busy mom of 3 and haven’t been to the mall since I started using Amazon Prime Wardrobe! 🙌🏻

Recently, I was in need of a new bathing suit, and shopping for swimwear is probably my least favorite thing to do in-store. Who’s with me?! 🙋🏼‍♀️

Thanks to Prime Wardrobe, I was able to try a bathing suit and everything to go with it because…why not?! The service is still free if I decide not to keep everything, after all. 😏

Here are the Prime Wardrobe pieces I recently tried:

My order arrived in just two days! Impressive! 👏🏻

It’s always so fun to try everything on at home and it totally beats the hassle of rushing in and out of a fitting room at multiple stores. Plus, you can’t beat the comfort and convenience of never leaving home. 🙌🏻

I’m also someone who loves textures. Yes, I was the kiddo touching EVERYTHING in the store. 🤣 As an adult, I still love to touch and feel fabrics, admire thoughtful touches, and appreciate the textures.

Thankfully, I can still do all of that with Amazon Prime Wardrobe! 🙌🏻 It’s truly a win, win!

If you’re in the market for a modest bathing suit, I highly recommend the La Blanca one-piece I tried! It fits so perfectly and will definitely be my new go-to staple piece for summer. In fact, I ended up seriously loving everything! 😍

Our Hip reader, Alex, actually ordered the same swimsuit with Prime Wardrobe after seeing mine 🤩

“This is definitely one of my favorite swimsuits and it’s super flattering! I am a true large or extra large and ordered a size 12 and it fits perfectly. It has full coverage on the booty and I really appreciate the ruching and coverage on the belly which makes it even more flattering. Love it!” – Alex, Hip reader

I’ve raved about this swimsuit so much that even our Hip CEO, Collin, has ordered it in white! 😍

After trying it on, she agrees her white La Blanca swimsuit feels very high-end and loves wearing it with her favorite floral board shorts from Amazon.

I like to be transparent, so here’s what I don’t love about Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy:

woman opening amazon prime wardrobe try before you buy box

The clothes can get pricey.

Sure it’s great to online shop, but I did notice that a significant amount of the clothing can get pretty expensive and if you’re not careful, you can easily run up your cart total. I also didn’t spot many sale items, so you will likely be paying full price for many.

Sizes tend to be unavailable.

I found items I liked but sometimes my size or desired color wasn’t available. This caused me to miss out on the opportunity to try on items I may have really loved. However, if you simply want to try an item before you commit, you can always try a different color and return it free and buy the one you really want.

They may not send your stuff in a resealable box or bag.

My most recent Amazon Try Before You Buy order didn’t come in a resealable box, whereas before it did. I’m not sure if this is new or only happens on occasion but I was disappointed to have this inconvenience. Regardless, using a little packing tape was still way cheaper than the gas I would have spent to shop in-store. 😊

Here’s what another Hip2Save reader shared about her Amazon Try Before You Buy experience:

hand holding an amazon prime wardrobe try before you buy receipt

“I use Prime Try Before You Buy for shoes, and it’s great! Living in a small town, the selection on Amazon is so much better than what I can find here. I love that I can try several styles, and different sizes, and simply pack up what I don’t want to keep. It has gone really well every time and there have even been times I’ve had to return everything!

I was freaking out the first time I placed an order because multiple pairs of shoes amount to hundreds of dollars, but they don’t charge your account unless you keep them, and I was careful to return what I didn’t want ASAP! Again, such an easy experience. 

Trying on stuff at home is so much better and with plenty of time to try everything on, no pressure from sales reps, and being able to pack it back up on my own time in the same box it came in, Amazon Prime Try Before You Buy is a no brainer for me!” – Amy, Hip2Save reader

    I ordered some stuff last week and I’m getting it on Friday. Yay! Love this.

  2. frugal-fit-sexy

    Thanks, I’m tired of buying and returning. I’ll definitely give this a try. I’ve come across so many great articles of clothing on Amazon. As a HS teacher I need a big wardrobe and about half is from target and Amazon. BTW, Sara you have that perfect body where anything looks great on you.

  3. Amy

    I use Prime Wardrobe for shoes, and it’s great. Living in a small town, the selection on Amazon is worlds better than what I can find here, and some of the shoes I like are WAY too pricey to take chances. So I can try on several styles from the same brand, or multiple sizes of the same shoe, and just pack up what I don’t want to keep. It has gone really well every time, though i sometimes return everything and keep an eye out for future sales on a particular brand/style, when I start to think about whether I can justify spending the money right then.

    Honestly, I was freaking out the first time I placed an order because 7-8 pairs of shoes was hundreds of dollars! But they don’t charge your account unless you keep them, and I was careful to return what I didn’t want ASAP. It is really nice to have the big box at home though, with plenty of time to try on and no pressure, and I like the way you can just pack it back in the same box (mine have all come with a tear strip to open and you put the other flap on the outside when you repack it, and it has a sticky strip ready to reseal).

    I love this.

  5. Kenna Porter

    How is this different from buying a few items and returning what you don’t want?

    • Emily (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Kenna! With Try Before You Buy, you are not charged for items when you checkout, and will only pay for what you keep. Hope that helps!

  6. Tracey

    I’ve used this service 3 times so far and have found some great items; it’s so convenient to try it on at home as you can pair items with things you already own like shoes, etc. Mine have always come in resealable bags; guess they switched to boxes… One other thing to note is that you do have to use a credit card as opposed to a debit card so that they can charge for just the items you keep. We normally use our debit card on Amazon, so did have to add the credit card info. (We try not to charge too much, but that’s just us!)

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      So awesome to hear that you have found some pieces you love using Try Before You Buy, Tracey! Thanks so much for taking the time to share your honest feedback and tip! πŸ₯°

  7. Bella Donna

    Is that the only difference with Prime, you won’t get charged until you decide to keep the item? Not much difference since you get the refund after you return the item with regular Prime acct.

    • Hartsell

      Agree! Either way, you still have to take unwanted items to return them. Plus I’m a fan of returning at Kohls since they always give Me a $5 coupon! The window on Prime Closet is shorter so it’s actually much less convenient.

  8. alaskajoy79

    I appreciate prime wardrobe here in Alaska where there are few stores. Although I have been disappointed in most of my purchases and sent it all back, it was nice to not be charged and easy to return.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      SO happy to hear that you enjoy the benefits of Try Before You Buy program! πŸ€—πŸ’•
