thredUP gets a makeover!

share this:

I bet you’ve noticed a refreshed design on With a clothing selection growing as fast as your kiddo, we decided to update our shop design to make it easier than ever to find what you need, and allow you to shop to save.

Here are some of the great additions you’ll find…



We have a huge selection of brand name kids’ clothing on our site, and our inventory refreshes every minute! To make sure it’s easy for you to sort and find exactly what you need, we’ve added a sidebar navigation tool. Select our girls or boys shop, and start filtering by well-organized categories, brands, colors, prices, sizes and more.



Thousands of clothing items on thredUP are marked New-With-Tags (NWT), which means they were never-worn! Now you can search NWT items, and discover even more incredible savings.


thredUP is all about value and discovering hidden clothing gems to save you money. To make it easy for you to shop on a tight budget, you can now filter by price. Simply select a price, and we’ll find clothing items within your price range.


Do you jump for Janie & Jack? Go bananas for Gymboree? Daydream of designer discounts? Then you’ll love our new shop-by-brand feature. Type in your top brand picks in the sidebar navigation, and we’ll save your faves. That means every time you visit thredUP, you’ll see the new items in the brands you love.


You wrote to us and we listened!
Our customers sent feedback requesting more detailed descriptions about every item, reminding us that every child is different. Now you can search by adjustable waist! Husky, slim and plus sizes are in the works.


We’re working on some snazzy new technology that will help us take photos faster, and at a higher resolution – so you can see in even more detail exactly what you’re buying in advance. Photo quality will continue to improve over time, so keep an eye out!


We believe your outgrown kids’ clothes deserve a second chance, and you deserve some return on your clothing investment. That’s why we’re now providing free thredUP Clean Out Bags with every clothing order. Now it’s easier than ever to wear, return and repeat.


We’re just getting started. Stay tuned for more updates to improve your shopping experience on thredUP! Here’s another sneak peek of what we’re working on:

  • A live chat customer support feature and searchable FAQs to make it easier to find answers
  • Complementary item suggestions to help you complete outfits
  • Saved searches and item recommendations based on sizes you need and brands you love
  • Item recovery in your cart in case you have a change of heart and decide you need that bright pink jumper afterall
