Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. Your stylist will send you 5 pieces based on your profile for you to try on at home and hopefully fall in love with. There are no coupons for Stitch Fix but if you hit the jackpot and keep everything, you save 25% on your whole fix (read below for details).

Don’t forget – Stitch Fix now has boxes for men and size exchanges! Guys can now sign up for Stitch Fix, and handy size exchanges are available right from the app or website. Checkout will indicate what other sizes are available, and this is fabulous!
This is a review of a maternity fix, and it includes a few plus size items.
Your return mailer is tucked right into the box. The styling fee for each box is $20, and shipping is free both ways. I put my return items out with the rest of my outgoing mail – couldn’t be easier.
Every box includes a set of styling cards with suggestions on how to wear the particular item. The styling cards have changed a bit – before they showed a dressier and less dressy version, now they’re featuring multiple sets of accessories to pair with the garment, or 2 entirely different looks, but not necessarily dressed up and dressed down.
I find the styling cards very helpful. I am not a naturally good-at-fashion person and these help a LOT. Even if I don’t keep the pieces I use them as inspiration – like my own personal fashion editor!
Here’s how Stitch Fix works: fill out your style profile! This includes style, budget, what you’re looking for, and you can get as detailed as you want with the notes to your stylist. It really really does help to provide notes to what you’re seeking, and a Pinterest board if you have one!
You will also receive a separate paper with a list of your items. You’ll be charged a $20 styling fee and shipped five items to try on at home. If you keep anything your styling fee will be applied to your order, but if you don’t, you will pay the $20 fee.
The styling fee is so worth it – I never go clothes shopping anymore. I just wait for my fix! If you keep everything you get a 25% discount, so it pays off to be specific on your style profile. You will check out and get charged through your Stitch Fix account. Return the pieces you don’t want in the prepaid mailer (free shipping!).
If I kept everything in the box, this fix would be $250 – about $50 per item (after the styling fee I already paid for).
Everything in my November fix.
Daniel Rainn Maternity Eeivi Maternity Swiss Dot Knit Top ($58.00) The style of this top was ok – but unacceptably short for third trimester of pregnancy.
This is just on a dress form!
Octavia Lawrence Plain Oblong Scarf ($38.00) A cute nubbly knit scarf – but the colors are totally not me. I don’t have a single brown item in my closet and intend to keep it that way.
Full Moon Segura Tie Waist Maternity Blouse ($48.00) I did keep this top – the belted look is super cute and bump accentuating, which is where I’m at currently!
It goes all the way around, but you can also wear it up front. Only downside is I don’t really have pants to match this. I’m pregnant enough that if anyone mentions navy with black pants I’ll give them a SERIOUS look.
Junarose Pamela Parka Puffer Coat ($128.00) As I noted to my stylist – this style is great – I have a REAL coat with actual down from Land’s End in this style – and it doesn’t zip up either (because 8 weeks left). This is PONCHO TIME PEOPLE.
Le Lis Sia Faux Wrap Dress ($78.00) Taupe also not in my wardrobe vocab – neither is a clingy mostly white dress when I’m feeling ALL my bumps.
Based on my Stitch Fix Maternity experience, I’d say they have a hard time nailing it. I’m going to venture a guess that some of the stylists including this one have never been pregnant, and the choices are just unrealistic. Also it doesn’t seem that their algorithm knows anything besides “maternity” and that one maternity top is just way too short for big bellies. They also did an overall poor job this month with my color preferences. As usual – these may be awesome items for you and if they are, make that request, but they don’t match up with my long held needs to avoid warm colors in my wardrobe!
