Stitch Fix Maternity Clothing Subscription Box Review – June 2017

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

Stitch Fix Maternity 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 review is of the Stitch Fix Maternity, $20 a month, box.

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!

  1. What are your other recommendations for subscription clothing? Mother of 2 very young little ones and it’s a challenge to go out and shop for myself.

  2. When I got my maternity box from Stitch Fix last year, I was also really disappointed by the picks – everything just made me look even larger and fit sort of like a bag. I ended up keeping the dress they picked out, which worked out until about month 8 when it didn’t fit really well anymore length wise.

    But the great thing about SF is that if you are really that disappointed and you are polite in explaining why you felt they completely missed your style in the box, they are likely to provide a “free” box for you in the future (as in you’re credited $20 for a future box).

  3. Haley (or anyone else that might know the answer): I am new to stitch fix and just received my second box today. Unfortunately I hated everything in it except for one item. I wanted to keep just the one piece that I liked so I would not have to lose my styling fee, but they sent me a size that’s too big. I went to “check out” and do an exchange but they do not have my size in stock. Does stitch fix penalize you for this and make you lose the styling fee even if they cannot honor an exchange? Just thought you might know 🙂

  4. You looked great in all the clothes. So cute

  5. The striped shirt was just perfect for you! You pulled it off so well! And it complemented your hair and skin tone so well. I just had my second baby, and I definitely couldn’t pull off stripes and polka dots like you do! Congrats on your new addition!

    Also, how on earth was their maternity offerings to you so low? Well, low for stitch fix. I’ve only had three fixes total, but my cost to keep everything was always at least $220, even my last fix which was not maternity clothing. I love the concept of stitch fix, especially with having a two year old and a newborn (because we all know how trying things on in the store is with two kids in tow) but the price point really prevents me from using stitch fix more.

    • Jess, I’ll be there with a 2 year old and newborn soon, too! And I was surprised at my price point as well. It’s rarely that low, and I constantly give feedback saying stuff is priced too high or “I liked it but not $68 worth” or something. This isn’t my usual price point. Check out my May box – I kept the whole thing but it was around $220-250 😳

  6. I’m not sure why the stylist would pick polka dots and stripes for maternity wear. The dress was pretty. I’ve only had success with 1/7 fixes and have had the most success with trunk club (you can swap out items before they ship which saves disappointment and allows you to get items more your style). I’ve been able to find identical stitch fix items at Nordstrom rack for half the price. Hope they step up their game since I’ve noticed even the msa reviewers haven’t been having many successful fixes lately.

    • KC, I think the stripes and polka dots fit my style pretty well, so my stylist did okay there, I just wish the colors or design we’re slightly different with the striped top… I’m so sorry about your luck with fixes! l definitely hear that from a few readers on reviews here. Generally, I have pretty good luck with mine. thanks so much for the tip about checking Nordstrom! That’s gonna be super helpful!

  7. The blue dress was perfect on you. I thought the cut under the bust and ruching on the hips worked well on pregnant bellies. I loved them on me when I was pregnant. And the color was super you!!!

    • Sarah, thanks so much! To clarify, I do love ruching while I’m pregnant, but while I was photographing it felt like they fell on a weird place on me when I moved around in the dress. Higher waists do work well in general when pregnant but my belly doesn’t start that high the way I carry, so I still prefer to have waistlines go down around my natural waist and up over the front of my stomach to help with a little more hourglass. Having a waistline directly under my bust makes fabric stretch over and hide the smallest part of my (front facing) silhouette. I probably have a longer torso, or maybe it’s because I’m tall? Or just the way I carry.

  8. That blue dress is gorgeous on you!!!!!

    • Thank you! I love wearing that color.

  9. You looked great in that striped top! It was super cute on you! 🙂

    • Aw, thank you, Kristin! 😀
