Stitch Fix Maternity Clothing Subscription Box Review – June 2017
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!)
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).

This is my invoice sheet. It lists the prices per item and the discount I’d receive by keeping all 5 items. With the 25% discount and my $20 styling fee factored in, this box would cost me a total of $164.50 to keep everything – an average of $32.9 per item and a total discount of $81.50.
Every Stitch Fix also includes a note from your stylist and a card showing each item and styling inspiration.
Full Moon Peppy Knit Maternity Top – Cost to Keep: $44
I always love polka dots on other people but never seem to love them on myself. I love this color though, and I felt cute in this top! It’s a nice material that feels high quality and like it should hold up.
Loveapella Maternity Charlote Ruched Side Maternity Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
I love the design of this top, but I just didn’t love the print. The stripes are fantastic but I think the thicker white stripes just don’t do it for me. I like the higher neckline, but again, with this print, I wish I had some skin showing there to feel like I wasn’t just being swallowed by the print.
Liverpool Kaiden Distressed Maternity Short – Cost to Keep: $48
I just love Liverpool. I have been wearing the pair of shorts I got from them last month all the time. This pair has a great design – same high quality feel I’m used to from Liverpool and insanely comfy, especially in the maternity band. Plus, the length is great for me. I just haven’t worn a wash this light in years! I could get past that, though, but I just don’t like to wear distressed jeans. I know they’re really trendy, I just never pick them up for myself. I was really torn on these shorts, but since I just didn’t love them 100% I decided to send them back. Part of me wonders if I should regret doing so, but I know I’d rather buy a second pair of classic dark wash maternity shorts instead.
The top had a cute keyhole in the back, and the shorts just fit perfectly. As Liverpool tends to do
Loveapella Greta Knit Ruched Maternity Dress – Cost to Keep: $68
When I saw the color of this dress, I knew I wanted this to work out, but it just didn’t. I love that this dress can be dressed up or down, and the cobalt blue is one of my favorites to wear. I also love the neckline. The length is also great and the size was right, but the waistline being directly under my bust doesn’t work for me. Even maternity, it’s not the smallest place of my silhouette – I still prefer my waistline to go around my natural waist. I also felt that the ruching was in a weird place on my figure.
Jella C Cypress Side Slit Kimono – Cost to Keep: $38
I sighed when I pulled a kimono out of my box. I know they’re super trendy right now, but I just can’t get into them – they’re too boho for my style, maybe? If I wear an extra layer I want it to be a cardigan for when I actually need an extra layer on hand (I get cold a lot).
Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was a bit of a wash for me. I kept the tee because of the styling fee, but other than that everything went back. I probably could have grown to love the shorts, but I think I’d rather reach for another pair of basic, dark wash shorts throughout my pregnancy. Aside from the kimono, which is way off from my style (though I don’t think there’s a specific place to indicate such in the style profile), everything else just had some small quirks that made me not fall in love. I do have to give my stylist props for having a great price point for keeping the whole box, though!
