When it comes to placing your order, most of the time the process is fairly straightforward. Just make sure to pay attention if you need to provide any information regarding sizing, interests, or other things that would reflect the contents of your monthly box.
We made sure to consider shipping cost as well as the timeliness of shipping when compiling this list. Many of the subscription boxes above include free shipping or shipping at a reasonable price.
Most of the subscriptions on this list are shipped at the same time every month. Some companies offer expedited shipping for an additional cost. Just make sure to read the shipping information prior to ordering your box.
Since many of the boxes on this list come with products that are a surprise each month, we made sure to account for customer reviews.

Ease of Use
Ordering has been confusing for customers in the past because there is the option to buy the outfits in a single time purchase without paying for the monthly membership.

To sign up for the monthly subscription, you have to select the “VIP Membership”.
Doing so automatically charges your credit card $49.95 on the 6th of every month. To actually receive your items, you have to log into Fabletics sometime between the 1st and the 5th of the month to either select your outfit or opt to skip the month and not be charged. If you don’t, you will still be charged but Fabletics won’t send you anything. Instead, the credit will go towards another purchase.

But the trade-off is that you get flexibility in what you are going to receive and how often. If you wish to cancel your subscription, all you need to do is call and you can cancel anytime.
