PLVSH Style Subscription Box Review – May 2017
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.)

PLVSH sent this info sheet with details on each item and a brief explanation of why each piece was chosen for me. I really like knowing that everything was hand selected for me!
Slink Roll Crop Boyfriend Jeans – Cost to keep $98
These jeans are really cute – so cute, in fact, that I just bought some recently from a different subscription box. You’ll notice, however, that I am not modeling these. This is because I have had a sizing issue with PLVSH from the beginning that has never been straightened out. The first two boxes I got from PLVSH included jeans from NYJD, which I had never tried at the time. NYJD is known for their slimming technology, and I was anxious to try them. BUT, NYJD runs large, so both months they were too big and the slimming technology was all for naught. I asked if they ever sent NYJD again to please size down. Since that time, they have sent me the wrong size for all pants, jeans, and skirts. So, these are too small.
Side Twist Striped Top by Bobeau – Cost to keep $62
I love this top! I love the small black and white stripes – so classic! I also think the side twist is really cute, and somehow not bulky (like they tend to be). It’s also a really comfortable cotton knit.
Chambray Top by Vince Camuto – Cost to keep $89
I am cautiously open to the off-the-shoulder trend that seems to be all the rage this season, but this top is not for me. I think it actually looks kind of cute, but for some reason, I feel like I’m on an episode of Hee-Haw. It’s too “country”. I hope I don’t sound too harsh, but I know I just gave away my age if that makes up for it.
Sunlight Loose Fit Blouse by Alison Dominy – Cost to keep $150
This blouse is actually two layers – a 100% bamboo knit tank underneath a silk and mesh outer oversized blouse. I think the color is kind of drab for my tastes. I know it’s really high end and high fashion, but I don’t think it’s very flattering on me.
Basic Dolman Sleeve Tee by 17Sundays – Cost to keep $49.95
This is a really flattering tee! It’s a viscose elastane blend, which means it won’t wrinkle, but I might have to launder it carefully. I love the seam down the front, and the neckline is perfect for me.
Verdict: I have been a big fan of PLVSH for a long time, but I am really frustrated with their inability to grasp my size. I am the same size in all major labels. NYJD just tends to run a bit large, so I asked for an exception. PLVSH prides itself on concierge styling, so I would like to believe that asking for one sizing exception should be within their reach. In any case, other than that issue, I liked two tops and didn’t like two tops, which is pretty reasonable for any styling service. I really enjoy trying the high-end pieces PLVSH typically sends, too.
