Hi fabulous friend!
If you consider yourself an online shopping aficionado (as I do), then this post is going to rock your world!
We’ve all been there – you find what appears to be THE MOST FLATTERING, GOTTA-HAVE-IT, EXPEDITE THE SHIPPING-WORTHY piece of clothing through an online retailer.
So what do you do? Point. Click. Purchase.
After much anticipation, and numerous peeks out the window for that big, brown UPS delivery truck (aka: Santa’s Sleigh), a lovely package arrives on your doorstep and it feels like Christmas came early! You slip on your new item, whether it be that perfect summer skirt or a dream-worthy pair of denim flares, and it’s just not workin’ as well as you had hoped.
It might be the size, the color, the cut, the fabric, the length…so many things can go wrong!
Such a bummer, right?
You already paid for the item in full, so despite returns being fairly easy these days, you still have to watch your bank account like a hawk to ensure that your money makes it back safe and sound.
Luckily, the Try Button for Google Chrome, is revolutionizing this process, and in my opinion, they’re doing a stellar job!
In the words of Try.com’s CEO, “We don’t want to live in a world where we’re not in control of what we spend our money on, and that’s why we had to build Try.com. We’re tired of finding out that it doesn’t quite fit right. That the fabric is itchy. That we have to wait 14-days for a refund. ”
I don’t know about you, but I wholeheartedly agree!
So, if you don’t want to pay upfront for a pair of trousers that might be too tight, or if you have fitting room-phobia like lots of us ladies, Try.com might be just the thing for you. I knew I had to give it a whirl so that I could share my experience!
First things first, could their current list of retailers get any better?!
Well, yes…I need Nordstrom in my life so I’m sad that they’re missing from the list. But, I will say, I’m impressed with Try.com’s current lineup. From Asos and Revolve to ShopBop and Neimans, Try.com is working with a lot of my faves.
After downloading the Try.com Google Chrome Extension, you will see a “Try For Free” option on all items available through the retailers above. I’ve provided a screenshot from J.Crew below as an example – take a look right above “Add To Bag”. Isn’t this dress darling? I might just have to give it a “try”…
After you receive the item you are trying, you will have 10 days to decide whether you will keep or return. I decided to try items from both ShopBop and Revolve. As you can see in the screenshot below, Try.com will keep you updated with a countdown so that you know how many days are remaining in your trial period. If you don’t let them know within the allotted time, you will be charged for the merchandise. The Clare V. clutch that I tried in the screenshot below, is going to stay with me for sure!!
Unfortunately, this Shoshanna Fringe Frock didn’t fair as well. It arrived just as adorable as I had imagined, but it was a bit too big. It would actually be a perfect, flowy beach cover-up (but I don’t need another one of those!) If you do purchase, I would recommend sizing down.
Even though I was sad to see it go, returning this dress was a breeze through Try.com. I give the entire process two thumbs up! For your first try, you will be limited to trying 5 items. You will earn +1 Try every time you decide to keep something through Try.com. Isn’t that fab?
Currently, Try.com is invite only. Copy & paste this link into your browser if you would like an invite : https://www.try.com/r/christinaXFVR
