Introducing Fabrics, Photos, Filters & More!

written by Team thredUP

We’ve been busy! Everyday we’re hustling to deliver the best re-newed clothing experience online, listening closely to your feedback and making improvements. We wanted to take a quick breath (ahhh) and share with you the new and anticipated thredUP features coming you way.


1) Fabric Details: Hey, Material Girl. You asked for fabric details, and you got ’em! We’ve started to collect fabric content from each clothing tag to give you a better idea of feel & fit. Look for Material under “Item Details” on our product pages.

2) Photo Enhancements: Our Engineering and Operations teams have been hard at work improving photo quality and clarity. We’ve also built out a studio where we photograph about 1,000 items daily on mannequins.

*Coming Soon: Photos of the front & backs of clothing! We know you’ve wanted this for a while, so we’re working feverishly to build, automate and get multiple photos to you by December.

3) More Ways to Search: We have a lot of clothes to shop. To help you find what you need within your budget more quickly, we’ve introduced a “Shop by Budget” filter. Located in the sidebar, this tool allows you to sort by:

  • Bargain includes discount brands like Old Navy
  • Basic includes staples like GAP
  • Premium includes higher quality brands like J.Crew 
  • Designer includes items from brands like Diane Von Furstenberg


*Coming Soon: Within the next couple of months you’ll be able to search by styles, patterns and themes – like skinny jeans, zebra print and Justin Bieber T’s for your obsessed tween. 

4) New Brands Everyday: Since our April launch, we’ve had 13K women’s brands available for sale, and are adding more everyday. Have a brand you’d love to see? Shoot us a note at

*Coming Soon: Keep your eyes out for our Holiday Shop which will feature hand-selected, gift-worthy items and deals on brand name clothes. 

5) Bags, Bags, and more Bags: While we’re making all these tremendous online shopping improvements, we also have a team focused on reducing the time it takes to receive and process your bags. Right now we’re putting 5,000 items online everyday, but we have a lot more work to do in terms of improving your selling experience! 


As always, we appreciate your feedback on how we’re doing, so please email with your thoughts. Thanks so much for your continued support!
