Amazon announced a new “try before you buy” service last summer called Amazon Prime Wardrobe. The latest perk for Prime members would allow them to try on and return clothes they purchase from Amazon for free. The service was launched in beta last year with Prime members being invited to sign up to get notified when it launches. Amazon today announced that Prime Wardrobe is now open to all Prime members in the United States.
Amazon’s service allows Prime members to fill a box with at least three and up to eight items at any time. The box will be shipped to them and they will then have a week to try on the items, keep the ones they want, and return ones they don’t. They will be charged for all of the items if they don’t return the box within the time period.
The service will help those who are apprehensive about shopping for clothes online take the plunge. They will be able to properly check the fit of the items they like knowing that returning them will incur them no additional charge.
Prime subscribers should keep in mind, though, that not all of the clothes in Amazon’s inventory will be eligible for this service. To make things easier, Amazon has made a dedicated Prime Wardrobe section which lists all of the items for men, women, and children that are available as part of the service.
