Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Box

Stitch Fix is a monthly styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences, and then your personal stylist sends you 5 items to try once a month. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping and free returns. And if you keep any of the items they send you, you get to deduct the $20 fee from the total. (If you keep all five items, you also get a 25% discount!)

Stitch Fix recently began offering maternity clothes and I’m pregnant (due in August!) so I’m checking out their selection to help me build my maternity wardrobe!

FYI – My items are reflective of my style and price preferences, so your Stitch Fix may be completely different!

My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Info

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a letter from your stylist.

Personally, I was really surprised by the letter! It was very personal, and she even mentioned specific things I had pinned to Pinterest (in your profile, they let you link to a style board on Pinterest to give them a better idea of the look you like). My stylist also mentioned the fact that she thinks the jeans should be long enough (I requested LONG pants – I’m 6 feet tall!), and if they were too short that she’d get it right next time.

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Cardigan

41Hawthorn Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan – Cost to Keep: $48

Mavi Leia Maternity Tall Length Jean – Cost to Keep: $98

I love the color of this cardigan! It’ll be perfect for Spring, and I think the way it lays makes it one of the most flattering cardigans I’ve ever worn. I love it, especially with this aqua tank (which is also a Stitch Fix item – shown next). Also, it’s versatile, and not specifically a maternity item, so it’ll work great in my wardrobe any time!

These jeans are basically jeggings! I wasn’t sure they’d fit when I was looking at them but there is so much stretch, and they are the perfect length for skinny jeans. The dark wash is flattering and a total win for me, too. They are full-panel maternity jeans so they can comfortably carry my through my whole pregnancy and even post-partum. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’m going to be living in these jeans from now on!

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Tank

Loveapella Stelli Embroidery Knit Maternity Tank – Cost to Keep: $54

This tank is really soft and comfortable and I love the gems by the collar, which add some bling and femininity. I’m 18 weeks pregnant, and I don’t think I quite fill this top out enough to look actually pregnant and not just in that awkward is-that-bump-a-baby-or-just-body-fat phase yet. But my belly with get there and this top will work perfectly on its own in the summer. For now, I adore how it looks with the 41Hawthorn Cardigan! Bonus: it’ll be flattering and comfortable after the baby is born, as well.

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Red Top

Loveapella Merced Open Back Maternity Top – Cost to Keep: $48

I like this top okay. It fits really well and is actually quite flattering, but it’s a little simple for my taste. I’d be loving this top if it were in a pattern. That being said, it does fit really well, and the detail on the back is cute and I don’t even have to worry about wearing a special bra so my straps don’t show (which is often an issue when it comes to having “open-back” tops or tops with back detail).

Stitch Fix Maternity Review – March 2015 Dres

Loveapella Maternity Lilly Stripe Maternity Dress – Cost to Keep: $78

This is one of the most comfortable dresses I’ve ever worn! The fabric is really soft, light, and breathable. The fit is flattering, and it’s pretty versatile – I can pair it with leggings to get me through these last few weeks of winter, and transition into spring once it’s nice enough to go bare-legged!

Verdict: This was my first Stitch Fix, and I’m really very happy with my stylist! She picked items that fit me great and everything is just my style, with the exception of the red top. I also really like the bright colors for Spring, and that a lot of pieces are versatile between seasons, and most of the items will be great post-partum, too.

I ended up keeping everything: when you keep all the items you get 25% off your total, and even though I wasn’t in love with the red top, it was actually cheaper to keep everything and get the discount than send the top back and pay full price for everything else. The total with the discount was $229.50. This is more than I generally spend on 5 pieces of clothing, but I can definitely tell a difference in the quality of these items. Also, I know that having some good basics that I can wear the whole way through my pregnancy (and even some that will work into my regular wardrobe after) will be important.

What do you think about Stitch Fix?

  1. Congrats on your pregnancy! How exciting! I love your ballet flats, where did you get them?

  2. I think your stylist did a great job! I loved everything on you…especially the red top! I was surprised when I read that you didn’t love it. Thank you so much for posting photos of you wearing the items, it really helps to see them on!

  3. Haley, congrats on your pregnancy! Being a mom is the greatest thing! I am a mom of 6 myself :D. I think that all of the items looked very nice on you! I agree about the red shirt looking great on you too. For the comments about the maternity pants, I agree that the ones with the tiny elastic panel, like 2-3″, are great for pregnant and non-pregnant ladies. I bought so many during my second pregnancy and they work well forever, especially during times of the month we may be bloated. I always wear a shirt that covers the thicker waistband anyway. This type of subscription is out of my price range but I think it’s a fun way to celebrate. For those of you that also couldn’t afford this, you should check consignment stores or thrift stores if you don’t mind second hand items. I found so many nice items barely used at my thrift store named Savers. I got some expensive name brands for about 80-90% off retail prices. Congrats again & you are beautifully glowing!

  4. First off, congratulations!


  5. I second everything that everyone has said so far!

    I also wanted to say thanks for going through the trouble of trying everything on and posting pictures for us! I think it gives everyone a much better idea of the fit and quality of the clothing that they send out. It’s so hard to tell much when it is just hung on a mannequin – everything tends to look so shapeless and wrinkled.

    It all looks so great on you. I know the tank is loose, but I think it is flattering on you and makes you look pregnant and not otherwise.

    • Comment

      • I totally agree that it’s easier to judge the clothes on a body than on a mannequin. I’d love to see more reviews in this format. Thanks Haley!

        • Totally agree!!

    • Ditto on all the comments! I love seeing you in all the outfits, and I adore that cardigan. Everything looks great on you and should grow nicely with your baby bump. I do Stitch Fix and mine keep improving, but yours is amazing.


  6. Congratulations, Haley!! You look gorgeous. 🙂

  7. My comment posted in the wrong spot.

    Haley, congratulations on your pregnancy!You look beautiful in your clothes. I agree with everyone on the red.

  8. Congrats, Haley! You look absolutely stunning! I love all of the pieces on you – your stylist did a fantastic job.

    I’m an old lady compared to most here and have a new grand baby. I know that my son and daughter-in-law are planning on having another down the line, so I will recommend that she check out your post.

  9. You look so great in everything! That dress is so nice. Congratulations & best wishes on your pregnancy.

  10. Congrats, Haley! So happy for you. 🙂 You look beautiful in all of those outfits. Pregnancy definitely suits you!

    My mother-in-law told me she was sad when she went back to wearing regular pants awhile after having her baby, ha!

  11. Congratulations on your pregnancy Haley! That is so exciting! You looked fabulous in all the outfits. I agree with all the other comments about loving the red shirt on you! All of the items looked great. Enjoy your pregnancy 🙂

  12. Congrats!! I am 21 weeks along myself :).

    Having been pregnant before, I can say with about 90% accuracy that the blue tank will always look big on you, even when you’re at 38-40 weeks. You look at the fit in the shoulders and the area right under the boobs – you want that area relatively fitted (not loose). Sure, you’re belly will get bigger, but not your arms / shoulders / collar. Just a thought.

    To me, I think the stylist did a good job here. I love the colors. However, even with the 25% off, when you factor in the $20 styling/shipping fee, you’re at $249 for five pieces. I’m definitely okay with spending as much on maternity clothing as regular wear clothing (I’m not cheap), but the total price and price per item here does seem rather high to me, especially for the jeans. For some reason, it’s easy to find inexpensively priced maternity jeans (I got mine for $20 on Zulily and have no regrets).

    I’m interested in this sub. I really could use more maternity tops, leggings, and dresses. I bought from Motherhood Maternity last time around and their stuff got all piled up and aged terribly (interpret as I’d go with Old Navy maternity wear instead of Morherhood if you’re looking for some budget-friendly items, and Old Navy is cheaper with a better return policy too). However, regarding this sub, when there are so many other things to buy in the near future (diapers, wipes, a pack-n-play…), I’m just not sure approximately $250 for five pieces is doable for me.

    • Darned iPhone – I know the difference between “you’re” and “your” but it autocorrected what I wrote and put down the wrong one instead.

  13. Congrats on your pregnancy, Haley! How exciting. Everything looks great on you, and I love the color red on you! I definitely think you’ll end up liking that piece, I think it would look so cute under a black blazer with a statement necklace. 🙂

  14. You look terrific in every piece! I am not pregnant but I would wear that dress in a moments notice. Wear it with a bold statement necklace and great flats and you are set for any occasion.

  15. Congratulations!

  16. Congratulations! You look great in everything but I am partial to the red blouse. You’re blond with fair skin. Red is probably your best color. It makes you look sexy and powerful! I know it’s a little plain in the front, but you can wear a statement necklace or something else to dress it up. It might even become you’re favorite blouse because there will be so many ways to wear it.

    • Great ideas, Donna! And thank you – apparently I need to wear red way more often!

  17. Totes adorbs! You look lovely!

  18. Congrats on your pregnancy!!! You look wonderful and are truly glowing. I adore that striped dress and am glad you went for it

    • Thanks so much, Holly!

  19. You don’t like the red top? That’s my favorite item of the bunch!

    • Vanessa, I liked it, but it didn’t have anything different or exciting to me to make me really love it. I feel like I really need to love an item to spend a little more on it than I normally would. But like I said, I feel like it fits great and I know I’ll wear it, so I wasn’t at all bummed that it was cheaper to keep all the items! =]

  20. Congratulations on your pregnancy!!!

    You look amazing on everything and I also think your stylist did an awesome job.

    Happy and healthy rest of your pregnancy, it is a whole new amazing world 🙂

    • Viany – thank you! And yes, so many new things already and even more to come. We’re excited. =]

  21. You’re so stinkin’ cute! Congratulations!

    I’m a huge fan of maternity pants (and I’ve never been pregnant)…something about the seamless, pull-up/down factor that keeps it a staple in my wardrobe 😉

    You look great in everything, especially the red and that last dress!

    • I think you’ve sold me on trying out maternity pants! 🙂 And congrats Haley – you look so great!

      • Thanks so much! They’re definitely comfortable. I thought I could go a long ways in my normal leggings, but those started cutting into my stomach sooner than I thought. I also got a pair of maternity pants from Target that just have a soft elastic band instead of the full-panel, but even that makes the shape a little off until my stomach gets bigger, and can feel like it’s digging into my stomach sometimes. I’m definitely loving the full-panel pants!! If you’re not looking for any kind of control-top to your jeans or anything, I don’t see why not to wear maternity ones all the time!

        • Haley, congratulations on your pregnancy!You look beautiful in your clothes. I agree with everyone on the red.

  22. I didn’t know you were pregnant! Congrats!!!!!

    • Thanks, Jennifer! This is the first time I’ve announced it on here! =]

  23. Congratulations! You look great. I wish stitchfix had maternity when II was pregnant, I needed help! Those jeans look awesome – having comfortable and cute bottoms is a huge challenge throughout pregnancy.

  24. These clothes are so adorable! Congrats on your pregnancy 🙂

  25. OMG Congratulations!!!

  26. Congratulations!!!!! You look fabulous!

  27. I wish I had known about this earlier

    • Desiree, Stitch Fix just started offering maternity clothing (and petite clothing), so it’s a new thing – I jumped on reviewing their selection!

  28. That red shirt is my favorite thing on you. You look great in it! Congratulations!

    • I agree, I know it wasn’t her favorite item but the color is great on her. I can’t seem to get behind these types of subscriptions, I just see myself forgetting to return items and getting charged for all of them. For the super busy however, this is great and the maternity line will be helpful for many.

    • Thanks so much! And with all this good feedback about the red top, I’m definitely feeling more positive about it! Maybe I should wear red more often. =]

  29. CONGRATS ON YOUR PREGNANCY!!! You look beautiful!! The items were super flattering on you.
