Infinitely Loft Review
Good morning! Get ready for a long one today because I’m so excited to share everything about Loft’s new subscription box: Infinitely Loft. First, let me just say that this post is NOT sponsored in any way. I was really curious about the service since I am a big Loft fan and wanted to test it out and give ya’ll an Infinitely Loft Review. At the time that I subscribed, there were hardly any reviews out there, so I figured I’d share my thoughts with you all in case this clothing subscription is something you might be interested in! Let’s jump right in!
What Is Infinitely Loft?
Infinitely Loft is a subscription service from Loft that allows you to choose items to create a dream “closet”. You fill your closet with at least 8 items (but can certainly add more), and they send you three of your items at a time in a box. When you’re done wearing those items, you send them right back in the supplied return bag. The service is $64.95 a month and you can send items back as many times in a month as you’d like. I was drawn to this in particular because of other services (like Rent the Runway) costing a whole lot more and some have limitations on how many items you can have per month.
Also, if you do decide that you like an item in your box, you can purchase it for a discounted price (usually 50 or 60 percent off). The service boasts that it will lessen your laundry load, keep your wardrobe feeling “new”, and of course it offers free shipping and priority mail. Here is the FAQ page for Infinitely Loft if you want to take a peek at the details a little more.
Infinitely Loft Review: How Did My Month Go?
If you’re looking for the short answer, my month went really well! But, just like with any subscription service, there are pros and cons that I want to be really honest about. The best thing about the service (for me), was feeling refreshed about my wardrobe and inspired with some new options to style or wear to work. I was excited about the new clothing and happy to have new items for the start of my school year, without having to go and spend $200. It didn’t bother me at all that the clothes weren’t brand new; in fact, I felt a strong sense of responsibility at the sustainable nature of it all. I’m someone who enjoys new clothing at the start of each season, but that’s just not always a smart or feasible option, especially when trying to budget.
For me, the drawback to the subscription was the time lost in the mail. After my first batch of clothing arrived, I set it out for return on a Friday. It took one full week to receive a new batch back. The following week, it took six days. During my entire subscription time, I never had a box arrive any faster than six days. For me, I felt like a lot of time was lost and wasted just waiting on the mail. Infinitely Loft has 3 day priority shipping with USPS, but with the time it takes to wait for your return to get back, you’re looking at close to a week from start to finish. I would absolutely keep my subscription if the company could speed up the process just a little bit with shipping. And maybe if you’re in a large city like Dallas or Houston, it may get to you a little quicker. I know that the headquarters is located in Ohio, which is very centrally located to many cities. For a small city out in West Texas though, it took a while for my items to arrive.

The Experience: Pros
One of the big pros when you are “shopping” for items to add to your closet is the ease of finding something. The collection is separated into categories, just like the actual Loft website would be: Dresses, tops, and bottoms. I thought it was awesome that they also had a petite, plus size, tall, and maternity section. This subscription box truly works for all sizes. I noticed that the selection of clothing is updated weekly, but don’t expect to find everything from the Loft website available for you. Nevertheless, I didn’t have any trouble filling my closet with at least eight items. There was plenty to choose from in each category.
The Experience: Cons
One of the big things that I did not like about the experience or process of picking items was the unavailability of certain clothing pieces. I might click on a dress, only to discover that they didn’t have my size available currently. It didn’t happen a ton, but it was slightly frustrating to realize that I couldn’t add certain items to my closet.
The last feature that could use improvement was the “priority” button. Once you add items to your closet, you have the option to prioritize them and Infinitely Loft says that they’ll try to get that item out to you first, or in the next shipment coming your way. I tried the priority button out three weeks and never received my “prioritized” clothing. I wish that there was a way to ensure what you were getting so that you could plan for an event. I also wish there was a way to “bundle” which items you’d be receiving so that I could pick a pair of pants, a coordinating top, and a dress for one order. As it is, you have no way of knowing what will ship until the package has already been sent off.

Is It Worth It?
If the mailing process changed, YES, this would be 100% worth it for me. I think the ideal customer is someone who enjoys new clothing, loves the Loft brand, and wants to budget with shopping but still feel like they’re getting the shopping experience. If you live in a big city, I bet your mailing time would be faster than mine. So what do you think? Is this something you’d try out after reading my Infinitely Loft Review?
