PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – January 2016
PLVSH Style is a subscription styling service for plus-size women. They describe themselves as “Concierge Styling, Exclusively for Women Sizes 14+.” I love this type of box! When I signed up, I had to fill out a pretty in-depth questionnaire regarding my size, style preferences, and lifestyle in order for them to select pieces that are just right for me. Selections for each subscriber will (and should) vary.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out our review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)
Subscription: PLVSH Style
Cost: $25 styling fee, which is credited toward your purchase of any items in the box
The Products: 5 plus-size clothing items selected for you based on your Style Profile

IMPORTANT: You must use a credit card (not debit) with this service, and the card must allow a pre-authorization of a charge up to $500.
My package came with a pretty detailed list of everything PLVSH Style sent me, with costs to keep the items and explanations of why they chose each item for me. I feel that a lot of thought went into the process of selecting each item just for me. I like that!
On the reverse side are some important reminders of their terms and the process for returning the items I don’t wish to keep.
Eloquii Blue Textured Stripe F&F – Cost to keep $84.90
I usually don’t like Eloquii much, but this dress is very cute. It was a little big on me, though, so I have to send it back.
NYDJ Hayden Bootcut – Cost to keep $120
I was so happy to see jeans from NYDJ in my box! I have been wanting to try them out again for a while now. I love the color and cut of this pair. Oddly enough, I think I may have lost a few pounds recently, so these jeans were also too big. I need to try a smaller pair so I can see what happens when I engage the “Lift Tuck Technology”!
Nic and Zoe Long Stitch Cardi – Cost to keep $164
This was my favorite item in the box! I had no idea how flattering a long cardigan can be! Plus it works really well with my boho aesthetic. I am really struggling with the idea of spending so much on a cardigan, though!
Karen Kane Seam Detail Sweater – Cost to keep $88
The neckline on this top is super flattering! Otherwise it didn’t seem special enough to me to keep for the price. I like a lot of color in my wardrobe.
Lucky Brand Batik Print Peasant Top – Cost to keep $59.50
I had the reverse issue with this top… I LOVE the print on this! This print nails my style exactly. Unfortunately, peasant blouses, especially the kind with an elastic neckline like this one, are just not flattering on me. Fortunately, that’s something I can mention to my stylist to ensure that I don’t get any more in future boxes.
Verdict: Despite the fact that I might only be keeping one item out of this package, I had a great first experience with PLVSH Style. I feel like they really paid close attention to my preferences and lifestyle when they selected these items for me. The service also has a really upscale feel to it without being ridiculously overpriced. I’m a fan!
