Stitch Fix Maternity Review – May 2015

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. If you buy something, MSA may earn a commission. Read the full disclosure.


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!)

Stitch Fix recently began offering maternity clothes and I’m pregnant (due in August!) so I’m checking out their selection to help me build my maternity wardrobe!


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).


When I opened this month’s box, I was immediately excited about all the stripes!

The Subscription Box: Stitch Fix

The Cost: $20 Styling fee (Pay for whatever items you keep minus the $20 credit)

Each box comes with cards with styling suggestions for every piece, plus a letter from your stylist.

Personally, the letter surprised me with how personal it sounded, and she even mentioned specific things I had pinned to Pinterest (in your profile, they let you link to a style board on Pinterest to give them a better idea of the look you like) or had spoken about in my feedback of last month.


LA Made Maternity Siera Maternity Maxi Dress – Cost to Keep: $118

In theory, I love this dress. The colors, stripes, length – almost everything was perfect, except for the fit of the top. There was so little coverage in the top that I had to pair the dress with one of my own tank tops just so you don’t see basically all of my bra.

The arm holes were so big that even if I wore a racer-back bra, you’d be able to see the band of it. Also, the waist unfortunately hit me about an inch or two below where I needed it to be most flattering.

Now, normally I would be a little bummed that the fit just didn’t work out. However, I’m actually quite disappointed in this pick from my stylist. In my feedback last month I specifically stated (in two different comment sections!) that I was hoping for a maxi dress, but one that has enough coverage up top that I can wear a normal bra with it (strapless bras and I do not get along, especially mid-pregnancy and definitely not while nursing). I appreciate getting a maxi in my box, but I feel kind of frustrated that I specifically stated this particular fact twice, and then I get a dress with this kind of top.


Liverpool Kolten White Denim Jacket – Cost to Keep: $88

This jacket is really soft, and it’s definitely well made. I especially love that the sleeves are long enough! I absolutely love it with this outfit, but I’m not sure a white jacket works into my wardrobe very well. It also already had some smudgey spots on the back (see photo below), which isn’t a huge deal since I’m sure I could easily bleach them out, but it’s worth noting. At first I was wondering why a jacket would be included in a box when Summer is here, but then I remembered that I live in Michigan and I will definitely have days throughout summer where I need an extra layer.

I’ve never owned a white statement piece like this, so it’s not something I already have but it’s also out of my comfort zone – I’m definitely on the fence about keeping this piece!

Mavi Ruxin Maternity Boyfriend Jean – Cost to Keep: $98

These jeans are another item I’m on the fence about keeping. Seeing them in the photos, I think they look really nice (which is rare for me when it comes to lighter-wash jeans). My main hesitation with these is that the waist feels lower than I like around my hips, even with non-maternity jeans. These are side-panel maternity jeans that have elastic panels instead of having a panel that comes up over your stomach (probably why it feels low), which I think makes them a good choice for summer since I wouldn’t have an extra layer on my belly. I also think that they could be great for after having the baby/all the time. I’m leaning towards keeping, but I think I need to wear them around the house a little more to see how I really feel about the rise.


Here’s a photo of the dark smudges on the top back of the jacket. (Sorry about the terrible lighting – I wanted them to show up in the picture my usual lighting washed them out.)


Loveappella Maternity Barti Maternity Knit Top – Cost to Keep: $54

I really like this top! It’s soft, and I love the lace details because they don’t compromise coverage/my ability to just wear a normal bra underneath. Having lace on the sleeves and then lace over the normal fabric in the back is perfect. However, one thing I’ve found that I really like in maternity tops is for there to be a waist that doesn’t make my bump and my chest blend together into one blob. I’m also not sure how well it will work after baby – it doesn’t seem nursing-friendly, and I’m not sure the ruched fit will be flattering at all when I’m trying to not look pregnant. I don’t want to buy a top that will only work for 3 more months.


LA Made Maternity Trixie Maternity Dress – Cost to Keep: $88

Again, this dress doesn’t have a waistline (which, don’t get me wrong, can totally work on some pieces) and I feel like my torso is blending together instead of showing off my curves. I almost chose a photo where my hand is on top of my belly, which I personally felt made a more flattering photo, but I wanted to make sure you could see what I meant about the fit. This is a nursing-friendly dress, too; the cami part is just attached across the front on the inside so you can pull it up and aside to feed your baby. I almost loved this dress, but I won’t be keeping it. I already have a good selection of dresses I can wear during my pregnancy as well as after, so I really need to love a dress for me to keep it.

Verdict: This was a better Fix than last month for me. I find it funny that my first Stitch Fix was so amazing for me, and since then it’s been hit or miss. Overall, though, I really liked this month.

My total cost to keep everything (including the $20 styling fee credited towards my total, and the 25% off to keep all 5 items) is $319.50. If I loved the dresses, I’d keep all the items, but I think I’ll probably end up just keeping the jeans and the jacket. The total for the two would come to $166 including the styling fee, or $83 for each.

All in all, I feel like the style of the pieces definitely fits within my own personal style, and I’m already excited to see my next fix!

  1. I think the white jacket looks amazing on you. (if you can get the spots out)

    • I think with a little nip and tuck you could wear most of those outfits post baby.

  2. I just thought I’d share with you who are nursing (as I am) that u have found camis without the “bra” – elastic is not a bra IMO – but wear one under your top and you can pull it down, still covering the belly and baby covers most everything else. I have done this and it makes finding something to nurse I much easier as all I have to do is pull it up.

  3. It’s me again, the pregnant lady who has a due date similar to yours. If it were me, I’d keep the jeans for sure. I’d also keep the jacket if they could make it right regarding the stains – either by giving me a discount on the jacket, or by shipping me a stain-free jacket. I’d also keep the nursing friendly dress because I don’t have anything similar already.

    About the t-shirt, I’d send it back due to it being difficult to nurse in. However, I wanted to add that I have a few maternity tops with side touching that I still wore for the first few months post-partum the last time around. It took me about that long to lose the extra fluid, extra blood volume, swelling, etc. So for the first few months, I had that deflated beachball look. Just saying, it didn’t all go away when the baby arrived. I only gained like thirty pounds during my pregnancy in total, but after my seven pound baby arrived, I was still rocking something like twelve of those pounds which then magically / naturally fell off at twelve weeks post-partum.

    • Thanks for your feedback and idea to contact them! I emailed SF customer service and they would have shipped me a new jacket but they didn’t have one available, so they offered me 15% off to keep it. =]

  4. You look amazing
    My being pregnant days are long behind me but I know I looked horrible

  5. The maxi looks really cute with the tank top added!

  6. I love horizontal stripes normally, but they don’t seem like a logical choice for maternity clothes…Stitch Fix sure loves their horizontal stripes!

    • I was just thinking today about how many women I have noticed that are pregnant that are wearing stripes! It’s not just Stitch Fix that’s really in to the stripes for maternity wear.
