As we enter the holiday season, we wanted to create a special edition of the Wantable Word dedicated to sharing our gratitude for our Wantable family, our community, and for each of you.
You: After the unprecedented year we’ve faced, we are so grateful to you for welcoming us into your home. Helping you with looks that empower you to be your best self is at the heart of what we do every single day.
Our Crew: From personalized notes from our Customer Service Team and handpicked pieces from our stylists to our socially distant teams at the Fulfilment Center perfectly picking and packing your Edit, we’re so grateful for our crew for hustling with heart to ensure delight gets delivered to your door.
“At Wantable, we are grateful for the opportunity to get invited into our customers’ homes—this year more than ever—to help them look and feel great for the most important big and small moments in their lives.”

Drive-In Fundraising Event Thank you to those of you who came to our drive-in movie fundraiser (who doesn’t love Hairspray?). Through this family-friendly event, we raised more than $2,000 for Milwaukee-based organizations advocating for racial equality. We’re also so grateful to our neighbors and local businesses who are helping us put the finishing touches to Wantable’s new headquarters—opening soon in Milwaukee’s Walker’s Point.
Barre Besties Our friends Christina and Annie from Barre Milwaukee sport their fave Wantable gear as they host weekly express Barre classes every Wednesday at 12PM CST on Instagram Live.

“I can’t describe the confidence boost.”
“You changed the way I feel about myself.”
