PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – May 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

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!
This is a first! PLVSH now sends an invoice that lists the items they sent and your cost to keep them.
PLVSH also sent this info sheet with details on each item and a brief explanation of why each piece was chosen for me. I really like knowing that everything was hand selected for me!
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 Yellow Guaze Off Shoulder Dress – Cost to keep $120
What a cheerful and fun summer dress! I love the color! It’s not really my style, though, so this has to go back.
NYDJ Marilyn Straight Optic White Jean – Cost to keep $120
I love the idea of white jeans in summer, but in reality, I can’t own any white clothing, really. I have kids and dogs and very little time for clothing maintenance. I also have to mention here that this is the third time I have received the wrong size in NYDJ from PLVSH. As a service for plus size women, PLVSH should know that you have to size down one size to get the correct fit from NYDJ.
NYDJ Ariel Crop Regatta Blue With Stud Pant – Cost to keep $98
Make that the fourth time they have sent me the wrong size in NYDJ. It’s a shame, too, because I really like the color and bling on these capris!
J. Jill Seamed Knit White Maxi Skirt – Cost to keep $79
This is another really pretty piece I wish I could wear! I just can’t do white on this grand of a scale, though. White is also kind of a fattening color on me, to be honest.
NYJD 3/4 Sleeve Pleatback Miramar Floral Blue Blouse – Cost to keep $98
I’m a little torn about this blouse. I like the colors a lot, but I’m not wild about the print. I also like the pleats in back, but the neckline doesn’t do much for me. I guess I have to send this one back, too.
Verdict: This month was pretty disappointing, to be honest. I can understand pieces not working out due to personal preferences, but I don’t understand why PLVSH Style keeps sending me the wrong size NYDJ jeans. Otherwise, they sent some cute pieces, but nothing that I really had to have. I think PLVSH is a really great service for women who are too busy to shop, or even just those who prefer to try on clothes from the comfort of their own home! Their pieces tend to be a bit pricey, but they always send pieces that are current and high quality. Here’s hoping next month will be better!
