PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – March 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.)
The Subscription Box: PLVSH Style
The 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
Ships to: US
Ships via: FedEx, and any items you wish to return must also be returned to a FedEx location
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.
Good to Know: PLVSH does price match, so if you see the item for less somewhere online, just let them know!
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.
BB Dakota Drawstring Waist Tuscon Dress – Cost to keep $95
I LOVE THIS DRESS! OMG! It’s so cute, it looks good on me, it’s soft, and it’s perfect for spring and summer! This is a definite keeper!
Vince Camuto Soft Denim Shirt Shift Dress – Cost to keep $144
This dress is super soft! It could be worn a number of ways, but I love the way it hangs all by itself. It kind of looks like I’m a little girl in my Dad’s shirt. The only thing I don’t love about it is the shoulder tabs. Sadly, I have to send this one back.
BB Dakota Jumpsuit – Cost to keep $99
I’m sorry, but I have no idea how to photograph a jumpsuit! I did my best. When this garment is on, the elastic causes a blousy effect on the top in the front that’s quite flattering. I know you can’t see the bottom of the pants, but the hem is tapered in toward the ankles. That’s a very unflattering look on me personally. I wish they had just stayed wide-legged! I would have totally kept this if the legs stayed wide to the bottom. How cool is the design of this? Look at the stylish detailing on the back!
Nic + Zoe Paneled Twirl Skirt – Cost to keep $148
This skirt is really flattering and well made! I just almost never wear skirts, so I have to send it back.
Karen Kane 3/4 Sleeve Pleat Front Blouse – Cost to keep $88
This blouse is so beautiful on the dress form. Unfortunately, this color is the most fattening color on me! I don’t know why, but it always makes me look enormous. I’m sure it’s just me, but I have to send this back anyway.
Verdict: I think PLVSH is a wonderful service, and I love my packages from them. Their prices are a little steep, but the pieces are very high quality and current. Their service is concierge styling, and it’s really designed for women who are too busy to spend much time shopping, but need stylish / high-end apparel that fits well and looks fabulous. I think they really do a great job accomplishing that goal!
