It's no secret that I love thredUP. This past year I've gotten many of my favorite things in my closet from them. I've heard time and time again comments about the cool pieces I've found, but also how hard it can be for others to find anything "good."
I think this is such a bummer, because there are gems on thredUP just waiting to be found! Today I thought I'd share some tips with you all to help make shopping on thredUP easier for you.
First, once you're on their website, it's best to utilize the column on the left-hand side. You can search specifically by your size, it will also do size equivalent. If you select "medium" it will also bring up anything else that is size 8-10. I often find some really cool things simply searching by size.
Another way to search is to add in favorite brands and stores. It'll save these for you too. When first shopping on here I only bought brands I was familiar with, as I was concerned about fit. There has only been one time in which I've gotten something from thredUP that didn't fit. Returns are easy and you'll get a refund on your card within about two weeks.
I do like to search by brand though, as I know what to expect when I get clothes from a brand I know.
The third way to search is to enter a "key word" in the search box. I found my favorite cream sweater, leopard print skirt, and denim jacket this way. Before buying full price or in a store, I like to see what thredUP has. It's saved me a lot of money!
On the left there is also a way to search by category of clothes too. Say, you need tops, you can just search them in your size, etc.
thredUP has perks for users too. If you sign up using this thredUP link, you'll get $10 off your first order and I'll get a $10 credit too. Much of what I've gotten has been free because of this!
Here are a few of my favorite thredUP finds:
Lumeire Dress J.Crew Dress
Merona Skirt Gap Denim Jacket
Everly Blouse Ann Taylor Sweater
So, what are you waiting for! Give thredUP a try, I promise you won't be disappointed!
