PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – April 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

The Products: 5 plus-size clothing items selected for you based on your Style Profile

Ships to: US

Ships via: FedEx, and any items you wish to return must also be returned to a FedEx location

Keep Track of Your Subscriptions: Add this box to your subscription list or wishlist!

IMPORTANT: You must use a credit card (not debit) with this service, and the card must allow a pre-authorization of a charge up to $500.

Good to Know: PLVSH does price match, so if you see the item for less somewhere online, just let them know!


My package came with a pretty detailed list of everything PLVSH Style sent me, with costs to keep the items and explanations of why they chose each item for me. I feel that a lot of thought went into the process of selecting each item just for me. I like that!


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 Floral V Neck Fit & Flare Dress – Cost to keep $120

Oooooo this dress is beautiful! If I had a wedding or something to wear it to, I would totally keep it! But I don’t, and it’s a little out of my price range at the moment, so I have to send it back.


BB Dakota Army Crepe Anorak Jacket – Cost to keep $140

This jacket is so cool! I love the saturated version of army green, and the zipper detail is so stylish! Since I have no need of a jacket for the next five months, though, I have to send it back. I also really don’t like shoulder tabs on me.


J. Jill Cotton Stretch Slim-Leg Pants – Cost to keep $99

These slacks are not my style at all. I like the color (they’re a super dark blue), but they are stiff and conservative and they have the always unflattering tapered ankles. Back they go!


BB Dakota Wide Leg Drawstring Pants – Cost to keep $99

These pants, on the other hand, and completely my style! I love wide-legged, flowy pants, and I feel they are the most flattering shape on me, pesonally. I think the colors might be a bit loud for my tastes, so I’m on the fence about keeping them.


BB Dakota Gray Raglan Sleeve Sweater – Cost to keep $99

This sweater is gorgeous, and it’s nice and lightweight for spring. It would look amazing with a bright or deep colored tank underneath! I have the same issue with this piece, though… I get that it’s still a pretty chilly in some places in the country, but do people really still buy sweaters in April? Also, I don’t think where I live is a mystery to my stylist. It’s really something I think they should look at.

Verdict: This month was a bit of a bust, but I still think PLVSH is a wonderful service. Their prices are a little steep, but the pieces are very high quality and current. They do need some work on sending seasonally appropriate pieces, though! Their service is concierge styling, and it’s really designed for women who are too busy to spend much time shopping, but need stylish / high-end apparel that fits well and looks fabulous. I think they usually do a great job accomplishing that goal! Just not this month.

  1. I almost choked on the preauthorization. I am not your typical size for plus arena. The items in this box wouldn’t work for me and seeing each box is sent with exact items to every person….I may be able to use a single item out of 5….not a good ratio. I’m with everyone else so far…wouldn’t it be nice to find a plus size box service that is affordable and exciting for us plus gals.

  2. I’m one that is still purchasing sweaters…just bought a linen/silk one yesterday in the coolest shade of green!

  3. The fact that I can’t use a debit card and they need to be able to clear $500 at a time turned me off instantly. As much as I want to support companies attempting a plus size box, I haven’t found one yet that’s going to work for me. But I’ll keep trying.

  4. Thank you for this review! I actually like most of these pieces but the prices are ridiculous; making this a subscription I wouldn’t even consider. The plus size market is so underserved—wish someone would come up with an affordable subscription box.

    • AMEN! I too could use plus size items, but these are way out my price range.
