Amazon is stepping up its push into the UK clothing market with the launch of Prime Wardrobe, a ‘try before you buy’ fashion service.
The service allows its Prime members to have up to eight clothing items delivered free of charge, try them on at home and pay for those they decide to keep. Returning unwanted items is free via a resealable bag and prepaid label.
“Fit is an important factor when it comes to buying clothes and shoes and with Prime Wardrobe, Prime members can try their purchases in the comfort of their own home at no extra cost,” said Xavier Garambois, Vice President of Amazon EU Retail.
“We are excited to bring this service to Amazon Prime members in the UK following its successful launch in the US in June.”
A dedicated Prime Wardrobe section on Amazon’s website enables customers to browse thousands of eligible fashion products from a host of leading brands.
The online giant has marked out clothing as one of the key growth areas for its business in the UK. Last week it opened its first fashion pop-up shop, in London.

Page through any mainstream publication, peruse the advertising screened on prime-time television or consider the media personalities that are held in the highest regard to see just how much youthfulness is lauded. Even from a strategic perspective, there is hardly a brand in existence today that is not affording consideration to attracting and engaging the “youth market”.
