Stitch Fix Maternity Clothing Subscription Box Review – August 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.
The Subscription Box: Stitch Fix
The Cost: $20 styling fee (pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)
The Products: 5 clothing and accessory items selected for you based on your Style Profile.
Ships to: U.S. only

Stitch Fix also always includes a pre-paid shipping bag for returns and an envelope with your info sheets in it.
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 $187.00 to keep everything – an average of $37.40 per item and a total discount of $89.
Every Stitch Fix also includes a note from your stylist and a card showing each item and styling inspiration.
Loveapella Maternity Whigman Short Sleeve Raglan Maternity Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
I love everything about this top! …except the colorway. The fabric was so soft and it fits me well, I just don’t think that this shade of grey does me many favors. I like the yellow, but as a whole, I just am not sure how often I’d reach for it.
Skies Are Blue Maternity Loni Maternity Open Back Detail Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $48
I didn’t know Skies are Blue did any Maternity pieces! I like this top a lot. Something about the print could be a little more my taste (maybe if it were scaled down to be a little smaller?) but it’s not bad. The fabric is swingy and comfortable and I love where the length hits me.
The back of this top is the best part! It features a drape-y cutout detail. I really love the way it looks, but it does feel like a lot of fabric on my back. I definitely think it’s still flattering and the look is worth the trade-off of the necessary extra fabric.
Le Lis Savine Maternity Short Sleeve Knit Top – Cost to keep: $48
This is such a great tee! I adore the floral print and the combination of it with the grey and white stripes, which cover the sleeves, neckline, and back. The fit is great, the neckline is perfect for me, and the fabric is a lightweight knit that is thin and cool for summer but still doesn’t need a camisole underneath at all.
Everything except the front floral panel is made with these grey and white stripes. The size of the stripes works perfectly for my taste, I love the way the lines meet at the sleeves, and even though it’s a lighter colored and weighted material you don’t see any of my bra or belly band of my jeans in it. I’m definitely going to keep and wear this tee as much as I can while I’m pregnant – I need an identical non-maternity version!
Daniel Rainn Maternity Cailen Maternity Ruffle Detail Blouse – Cost to Keep: $64
I wanted to love this top so much. The tassels, the ruffle detailing, the pretty dusty pink color… but alas, I just didn’t. First of all, it’s a sheer fabric so I need a camisole underneath – even when I’m not pregnant I dislike wearing sheer tops that require an extra layer to manage. That, combined with me being pregnant and this being for a summer maternity wardrobe, it just wasn’t working for me. The length was also just barely long enough, but when walking around and such it would just settle in a way that showed my cami at the bottom and I found myself wishing there were a couple extra inches – especially because, uh, this belly isn’t getting any smaller soon. The buttons at my chest gaped, too. And, I really love this shade of pink but I’m not sure how much I love it on my complexion.
I love that this is a top that could work in an every day, non-maternity wardrobe as well, but it just wasn’t perfect for me, and at $64 I needed to love it.
Gilli Laney Maternity Cross Front Knit Dress – Cost to Keep: $68
Gilli dresses never let me down! They are always flattering and comfortable and cute. This dress is really a winner for me. I love wearing these colors and the length is perfect for me. The cross front will be perfect for nursing and I can pair with leggings and boots and make this dress last me through the winter, too.
Verdict: This was a really good Stitch Fix for me! At first glance, I thought I’d keep everything in this box again, but there were just a couple small things with the raglan top and the pink blouse I didn’t love once they were on. I found some really fantastic items with the rest, though!
