Stitch Fix Maternity Clothing Box Review – April 2018
Stitch Fix is a monthly clothing and styling subscription service. When you initially sign up, you take an in-depth survey that asks you about your clothing size, personal style, and price preferences. They also ask you a few questions about your pregnancy such as due date and how you like to style your bump. Your stylist handpicks five items based on your preferences within the survey. The fee for this service is $20, and that includes free shipping as well as free returns. 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 paid for this box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Stitch Fix Maternity Clothing Box April 2018 Review
Each box comes with a free return bag. All you have to do is package up anything you want to return and send it back. Super easy!
This month Stitch Fix introduced a new “Extras” option where you can add items like underwear, bras, or socks to your order and they will ship with your next box. Just like everything else in your Fix, shipping and returns are free, you just pay for the Extras you want to keep when you checkout. The good news is that your $20 styling fee will be applied toward any extras you purchase, however, it is not part of the 25% discount you get if you purchase all 5 items in your Fix!
This is the invoice that was sent in the box. As you can see, it provides specifics on the brand, size, and price of each item. They also give instructions at the bottom for how to checkout and either purchase or return your items. My total came to $313, but with the 25% off (which they take off BEFORE deducting the $20!) and the $20 credit, my total drops down to $214.75. That’s a savings of $98.25 on these items.
This is the included style sheet which includes a note from my stylist. This is always super helpful to see how you can use each piece in a full outfit! This is my very first maternity box from Stitch Fix so I was really excited to try all 5 pieces.
Stork & Babe Natalie Maternity Dress, Size L – Cost to Keep $69
This dress was a little too business-casual for me. I loved the simple black color and the tie at the waist that sits right above my growing baby bump. The dress wasn’t extremely comfortable, with very little stretch. Plus, it had a side zipper that was interesting to me for a maternity style, so I felt a bit constricted at times. All in all this dress was a bit of a miss for me just give my lifestyle.
Skies Are Blue Maternity Conroy Blouse, Size L – Cost to Keep $58
Oh, I can never have enough red in my life! This top was sheer which made it so light and airy. I didn’t love the tab sleeves, they just aren’t my style, but I loved the tie waist and neckline. This is a style that I could easily toss on while still looking put together with a pair of jeans or a skirt. Plus, this is a great transition piece since we are still having cold weather here in Pittsburgh!
Vigoss Elaine Maternity Distressed Girlfriend Jeans – Cost to Keep $78
I kept all of my maternity jeans from my first pregnancy, but I didn’t realize that they would be super stretched out when going to wear them now! I had a moment where none of my old maternity clothes were fitting, but I was having a hard time finding cute jeans that I loved. Then these beauties arrived! I love a distressed jean and the medium wash of these was perfect. Not to mention, the belly band is so soft and smooth. These jeans fit like a dream I decided I didn’t want to take them off so I decided to keep them!
Thyme Maternity Maddy Maternity Zip Down Top, Size L – Cost to Keep $49
This top was just not my style. I didn’t love the solid back and the floral printed front. Plus, I thought the zipper was a bit unflattering to have on a maternity top, it accentuated my biggest areas right now, my belly and chest. It is a cute style for spring, but this was just a miss all around for me.
Teeberry & Weave Clemin Hooded Lace Up Back Cardigan, Size L – Cost to Keep $59
This cardigan is amazing! I only wish that it was a bit thinner so that I could make it work for spring. The fabric is extremely soft and cozy, but it really is more of a fall and winter style. I love a cardigan with a hood and the burgundy is a color that I don’t own a lot of but I am loving! This would have been a keeper if we weren’t heading into summer.
The Verdict: My first maternity box was a bit of a miss, but I did get some incredible new jeans! Maternity clothes can be extremely difficult to find that are also fashionable and reasonably priced, so I am extremely excited to continue receiving my maternity boxes. I decided that it was time to give a big updated to my Pinterest board with maternity styles that I am loving right now and that will work with my busy lifestyle of chasing my 2-year-old son around. Hopefully, my next box will be more geared toward summer styles that will help get me through the warm months ahead!
