Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Box Review – March 2017


Stitch Fix has finally started offering a plus size styling service! Hooray! I signed up on the very first day, of course!

Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey about your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when youíd like to receive your delivery, your stylist handpicks 5 items based on your preferences. 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!)


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).


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

This is the invoice that was included in my package. It lists out the items I received and the cost to keep each.


This really fun sheet of cards was also included. It has a note from my stylist, Adrianna, in the upper left corner. All the other cards are styling ideas for the items in my box. How clever!


This card was also included, with detailed instructions on how to make the most of your Stitch Fix experience.


The final piece of literature in my box was this card, encouraging subscribers to re-use the shipping box to donate used items to Goodwill. It has instructions on how to print a free shipping label and everything! That’s a nice touch.


My first item came in this neat little mystery box!



Leanna Stone Pendant Necklace by Marlyn Schiff – Cost to Keep $34

Oh my gosh, this is so beautiful! This is exactly my kind of necklace. I love the blue color, and the gold is so shiny! I wish I knew what kind of stone it is. I am wearing it in the pictures below to give you a better idea of how it hangs.

Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top by Laila Jayde – Cost to Keep $58

Normally I tend to think dolman tops like this one aren’t super flattering on me, but I really like this one for a number of reasons. First, I absolutely love the color. Second, I love the neckline and sleeve length, both of which are flattering. Third, it is a super soft cotton knit, and it’s just the right weight. I might have to keep it.

Cora Printed Maxi Skirt by Renee C – Cost to Keep $58

This maxi skirt is awesome! Look at all those vibrant colors! I love the pattern, too. This is also a really soft knit material, and it’s super comfortable! It also has the added benefit of being just the right length for me, which is rare.

Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee by Market & Spruce – Cost to Keep $38

This is actually the nicest tee I think I have ever tried on. It’s another super soft cotton knit, and it feels amazing. I also like the cut and the way it hangs – not too tightly, not too loosely. This is not my favorite color in the world, but as grays go, I think this one works.

Phineas Kimono by Renee C – Cost to Keep $48

This is also completely my style. It’s a pretty sheer chiffon, so it’s nice and lightweight for spring. I wasn’t wild about the pattern when I saw it up close, but seeing it in the picture, I like it a lot more. I think I look quite cool!

Verdict: Wow! I am so impressed by my first Stitch Fix! They completely nailed my style, right out of the gate. I absolutely love the dolman top, the necklace, and the skirt, and I really, really like the other two pieces as well. Could this be a grand slam? Am I actually going to keep the whole box and get my 25% discount on my very first box? I just might!

What do you think of Stitch Fix‘s new offering for plus sizes? Have you tried it yet?

  1. I love everything in that box on you. It makes me want to try Stitch Fix. Do they tell you where to get the items that they are suggesting to make the outfits with each item? I love that they have the outfit ideas.

  2. I ordered after seeing this review and I loved all five items in my first box and it came out to $150 with tax. I got Capri pants, shirt sleeve top, long sleeve top, cardigan, and necklace. The materials are comfortable and good quality and the outfit is slimming on me. I linked my Pinterest board to my stitch fix account and they can see what kind of clothes I like. I also put a full length pic of myself on my account so they know how to dress my body type. So thrilled they hit it out of the park the very first time! I’m requesting the same stylist.

  3. So…this review made me start a subscription!! Getting my first box next week!

  4. Thank you for posting this. I recently signed up for Stitch Fix, and if mine is half as good as yours, I’ll be happy. The pieces look fantastic on you. I love the fact that they provide outfit suggestions and tell you which pieces you can wear together. I need that!

    In a few weeks I’m moving from Hawaii to the Mainland, and I need help. If I got this box I would probably go out and buy something similar to the other pieces shown in the outfit suggestions that didn’t come in the box, especially since I don’t have things like jackets or shoes that aren’t sandals. I love everything about this.

  5. I just signed up for Stitch Fix two weeks ago – didn’t realize the Plus line was new. I got my box today and it was meh.

    They included TWO pairs of super skinny jeans. No. Skinny jeans just don’t work on me and I told them in my comments that I had gained a bit of weight and was feeling really self conscious so I wanted loose but flattering clothes.

    Sigh. They did include one dress that I absolutely love though, so all hope is not lost. I’m going to give them a second try.

  6. Loved all of the items except for the maxi skirt and the necklace. I think some of the shirts do seem kind of plain, but look nice on you and everyone needs “staple” shirts. With the 25% discount, it would probably be cheaper or comparable to just get all 5 items. Definitely think this is a win! I just signed up for Dia&Co (after reading a ton of your reviews) but would be open to this if that doesn’t work out! Thanks for the great review!

  7. I just got my stitch fix plus today and it was a complete miss. A color I specifically said not to include, a top that was unflattering for my shape, a jacket that was 2 sizes too big.. I felt forced to keep one item just so I wouldn’t lose my styling fee, otherwise I would’ve returned everything!

    Your Fix is great though and I love that skirt and the grey top!

  8. I got my first plus Stitch Fix today. I really liked the items except for one 100% polyester top that felt sooooo cheap and was very unflattering. The problem was being my first box I guessed my size based on my current clothing but everything was one size too big. 😣 also my box was $247…yikes

  10. Wow that was quick. I didn’t even sign up yet since they said it might be a while before we get the first fix. I seem to agree with everyone else’s assessment. I am very unimpressed with the grey t-shirt, but it pairs well with the kimono, which I love, so why not keep it since you like the feel and fit of it. There’s no way I could think about keeping every item in a subscription like this every time, but this one seems like like a good deal. $31,40 an item is not bargain basement, but you didn’t have to go to the basement to put them together either, and we have to be willing to pay for that part of the service too if we want to use it. My only issue is for me, this is pretty much the top price I would want to pay, and this looks like an exceptionally low priced fix compared to most I have seen. This makes me more inclined to give them a try, though.

  11. Anna, I read your reviews all the time and I think of all the clothing ones you’ve done this is hands down one of the best and certainly one of the most reasonable! I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time but decided to go with trunk club and I’m extremely happy with them. Your so pretty & brave to post all your pics! I love voting on your reviews, it’s so fun!

  12. Hey Anna, I think you should definitely keep the lot!

    This box looks great, really wish one of these “stylist” type clothing boxes would ship to Australia!

  13. I love that kimono top, it looks amazing on you! 😊

  14. I get my first box today and this makes me excited! Dia has been a bust for me…they keep sending me things I have specificially stated not to send me….like crop pants ….because at 5’9″ regular length pants are crops on me! They finally gave me a call to review my boxes and agreed with me that they had not been sending things that matched my profile or pinterest board….I am giving them one more shot…..but I am really excited to see what stitch fix has in store for me!

  15. wow $157 seems really reasonable for all that.

  16. I just got my first plus size Stitch Fix too and I think I’m keeping everything. I hope they can keep this up!

    • Awesome!!!

  17. i love these looks! what a great box!!! if weather is chilly with first outfit, a jean jacket will continue to rock that outfit out.

    :::looks over to my cents of style mystery bag, snarl:::

    i don’t think i have seen any apparel box by any other subscription service that has impressed me as of much as this. looks like stitch fix and i will be having a date sometime this afternoon. great review! thanks!

    • Thanks jenn! Enjoy!

  18. This was perfect for you! Keep everything!

    • Agreed. 🙂 Thanks Caligirl!

  19. It’s only $27 more to keep the t-shirt and the kimono, so you definitely should. The kimono was my favorite piece on you. Beautiful!

    • Thanks Connie! Superb logic!

  20. I don’t seem to be able to vote… but that’s okay because I think Anna should keep the whole box! At first I thought the items may be too expensive, but when they take off 25% plus the styling fee- the prices come down.
    I like that the 2 shirts are solids and seem like they will be perfect wardrobe staples. Then the other items are so Anna! Yay!

    • Yay! Thanks Wendy!

  21. You can add a lightweight scarf or necklace to grey tee. A comfortable well fitting tee is hard to find. Keep..

    • I thought Nani will! Thanks lucia!

  22. Wow everything in that box looks so great on you! I love that more and more companies are doing plus sizes, and your reviews are awesome. Unfortunately, every single piece in your box is really out of my budget, so this just wouldn’t work for me.

    • Thank you so much Deana! And please don’t feel bad, sometimes I can’t afford anything either.

  23. This is a great box! I’ve been tempted to try Stitch Fix for a while now, but a lot of the items seem to run on the expensive side for my budget, but yours looks pretty reasonable. I think you should definitely keep everything!

    • Thanks Amber! I was pleasantly surprised that the prices were reasonable. I think in the quiz you can specify your price point prefers, so maybe that will help.

  24. I love the necklace and kimono. I think the other items are too expensive as they can be found for so much less at kohls.

    • Agreed! The prices are too high. I’d like to see Anna in regular length dresses and skirts rather than the maxis. The kimono is a win, for sure, though!

      • Thanks y’all!

  25. I am kind of jealous. Stitch Fix was a total bust for me. Also the prices you are getting were way better than the prices they were sending me (never got anything below $78 even though I had “the cheaper, the better” marked).

    The blue shirt and skirt look great on you. Seems the Renee C. brand is hard to find outside of Stitch Fix these days, though, or I would order a couple of styles/colors since I really like bright prints.

    • Sorry Ragan… 😢

  26. Wow – that’s a nice collection! The grey T-shirt seems pricey for what it is but if you buy the whole box the discount makes it free so I’d go for it.

    • Good point! Thanks Janet!

  27. This is so fun! I agree, it makes sense to keep the whole box! You look great in everything!

    • Aw, thanks Melody!

  28. Anna, you look great in all the items! I would definitely keep the whole box. I hope I am as lucky as you were with your first box. Mine arrives Friday, and now I am really looking forward to it. Thanks for the great review.

    • Thanks so much Lisa! And fingers crossed!!!

  29. You look so great! The necklace also really works in every outfit.

    • Thanks Gabby!
