Two weeks ago I wrote a review about the workout apparel company P.V. Body. The company’s premise is that you pay a monthly flat rate (of $49.95) and receive one top and one pair of bottoms customized to your workout needs. I wrote honestly about my positive experience with the company in that I received my shipment quickly and truly liked both pieces of clothing. Since then it has been brought to my attention both through comments on my review and through P.V. Body’s facebook page that many of their costumers are unhappy.
It appears as though many women have placed orders through affiliate links (such as the one on my blog) offering anywhere from 20-40% off their first order and yet, the vast majority either have yet to receive their orders which were placed in November/December, received clothing that didn’t match the style quiz they filled out, or haven’t received the discount they were promised. Not only that but just this weekend I received an e-mail stating that they are now going to start sending out their own workout apparel brand “Ellie”.
Now instead of paying $49.95 for brands such as Lululemon, Nux, and Nike that you know are high quality and expensive, you’ll be paying to receive the company’s new brand. Maybe some will think this is a smart business move on their part; get people to sign up in hopes of receiving Lululemon and then send out your personal brand. But in my opinion it is also deceptive because it’s possible that “Ellie” won’t be worth anything close to $49.95/month.
The bottom line is, I don’t know whether P.V. Body is a scam or not. At best they are a poorly run company and I’m not comfortable representing their brand. To those who signed up through my link, I’m honestly sorry. I never would have advocated for the brand if I knew that this would happen and I sincerely hope that you receive workout clothes in the mail that you truly like. And for those who were considering signing up, all I can say is be warned and do so with caution.
