5 Reasons to Shop Smaller & 5 Stores You Can Now Shop on The Prept App

Check out our first 5 new small, women-led stores that you’ll be able to connect with + shop as we get ready to launch NEW features for YOU! Plus, find more info so you don't miss our upcoming launch.


It’s fun & exciting try new things & mix it up. Most of us want new options but end up shopping the same stores over and over again because it feels easier than searching, researching, and finding other stores we enjoy and trust.

Our platform help you discover amazing, smaller stores more easily!


Small shops are champions of the cool, unique, curated pieces. They often they incorporate local brands, different brands you might have not heard of, and smaller labels. With frequent curated collections, edits, and drops you’ll be able to find new pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe.


Smaller stores owners/teams are passionate about their products and eager to share their expertise. They’ve handpicked their selection, seen countless women try on, and tried out themselves! On our platform you can connect with stores via chat and expect genuine connection, helpful advice, curated looks, and recommendations just for you. Plus, who knows more about women’s style needs than women-led stores!


Smaller stores have different focuses and niches. For example a focus on on-trend, moms, maternity, casual attire, etc. This is ideal as you can find what works for you and expect curated, vetted products aligned to this focus unlike stores that try to carry something for everyone.


When you shop small, women-led businesses, you’re supporting local businesses, the amazing entrepreneurs and teams behind them, and communities. You're making an impact that you just won't make shopping big box / fast fashion brands. You’re keeping these business! Because without them we’d only have the same old options.
