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).
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.
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!
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!
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!).
Everything in my December Maternity fix.
Mix By 41 Hawthorn Arava Knit Dress ($58). This knit dress has a deep burgundy color which is accented with a diamond pattern that is in blue and black.
The dress is super comfy and has a flattering cut, a great style for expecting moms. The only thing I didn’t like is the colors which doesn’t suit my wardrobe.
RD Style Ipsa Seam Detail Pullover ($58) I definitely need long and comfy shirts!
A black pants or a leggings will actually look good with this large top but I’m pregnant enough and just weeks from delivering so I don’t think I would like to wear this with pants. Not quite long enough!
Market And Spruce Solas Long Sleeve Shirred Cuffs Maternity Knit Top ($44) This large knit top looks plain but it’s super stretchy and comfy.
Again, this will look good with pants and I totally loved it and would have kept – except that Stitch Fix ALWAYS sends me blue, and I really want not-blue. Really.
Market And Spruce Cori Released Pleat Tunic ($64) This is way more up my alley! A little tailoring and since it’s not maternity I can wear it post baby without looking like I’m still preggy.
The fabric was a little sheer but on the bod it looked good. I so desperately wanted to keep this one – but the sleeves were ridiculously long.
Pixley Lacie Ribbed Zipper Detailed Cardigan ($68) Now this is what’s season appropriate. Layering clothes is great especially at this time of the year.
This softly ribbed cardigan looks chic yet comfy.
The details are great and I like that it doesn’t require zipping up. But the whole thing was a little odd – and way too big!
I wasn’t a fan of this month’s fix, but anyone who’s nearing their due date is going to be crabby as a crustacean with their clothes. I returned everything – I’m super picky about cut, style, and color, and everything was a miss on one front or another!
