Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – May 2020

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. When you sign up you take a pretty in-depth survey of your sizes, your style, and pricing preferences. After choosing when you’d 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 Fix may be completely different. 

FYI, COVID-19 Updates: To learn more about Stitch Fix’s extended return window, any potential fulfillment delays, and more, read all of their service-related updates here.

My Subscription Addiction paid for this Fix. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we conduct reviews.)

Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing May 2020 Review

This is the invoice that was included. It shows in detail the items selected for me and the brands, sizes, and cost of each piece. The total comes up to $169 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is an $83 total savings! That is like getting the Kimber Scuba Crepe Dress Dress by 41 Hawthorn for free!

As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Jackie! For February and March, I had suggested style icons for my Fixes, but I opted to let my stylist freewheel it this month and for April‘s review! Jackie is a new stylist to me and mentions she checked out my Pinterest board for inspiration (thanks for saying I have a great sense of style, awe shucks!). I am excited to see what she chooses for my personal Fix this go around!


Kimber Scuba Crepe Dress by 41 Hawthorne, Size 2x — Retail Value $78

This dress is absolutely gorgeous! The teal green shade is a gorgeous jewel tone that can be worn this time of year with gold sandals, a large brimmed hat, and oversized sunglasses for a chic summer ensemble, but can translate to cool weather months as well! I can envision wearing this with black tights, chunky high heeled Mary Janes, a beret, and a faux leather biker jacket (my cool weather staple of course!). I seem to find people either love or hate scuba material– I am in the love category. I appreciate that the fabric has ample stretch, yet supplies structure. I would definitely wear this on a date or to the office– someday! What are places and plans– do you guys remember those? Jokes aside, I do love this dress and think it would look fantastic on a number of different body shapes!


Hamelyn Crochet Panel Knit Top by Daniel Rainn, Size 2x — Retail Value $58

I am a sucker for anything mustard yellow or orange, so I was pleased to see this piece in my Fix. The circular crochet design adds a beautiful retro touch as well. however, I was not loving the fit of this top. It was a little too snug in the belly and hip area on me. Though this top has ample stretch, that cute crochet detail lays on my hips— where I need to the most amount of elasticity! I wonder if a 3x would have a better fit, but then it might look too roomy in the chest. Sadly, I don’t think this top worked well for me, but I still find it adorable. I can envision this styled with some vintage-inspired palazzo pants, maybe a warm-hued vertical striped variety, with sandals, and oversized hexagon-shaped sunglasses for an immensely Summer of Love-inspired look! This also could be worn in the fall paired with jeans, a cozy cardigan, and booties– layers are key!


Selman Cold Shoulder Blouse by Papermoon, Size 2x — Retail Value $38

Normally, I am kind of meh on cold-shoulder blouses, but this one is rather adorable! I love the navy blue background with the bright pops of reds, hot pinks, seafoams, and celery green hues. The spaghetti strap cold-shoulder style with flouncy sleeves add a bit of romance as well. This would be perfect for a date with a cute mini-skirt and flats. I also loved this top tucked into my favorite high-waisted jeans for a delightfully sassy look. The material has limited stretch, but the cut provides the perfect amount of room. This top fits perfectly, not too big or too tight.


Madia Puff Print Knit Dress by FORTUNE + IVY, Size 2x — Retail Value $44

My photographer (AKA my boyfriend) loved this dress– as did I! For one, the fabric is buttery soft and immensely stretchy. It is so comfortable to wear! The floral print is classic, but the flutter sleeves and wrap dress style give it a romantic feel. This is an ideal date dress! The high-low cut is great too since it shows the front of your legs off a bit, but you have full coverage in the back. I styled this piece with the earrings my stylist sent me as well as my favorite black open-toed chunky heels. You will leave a trail of hearts behind you as you walk by in this number, I tell ya!


Fontana Fringe Earring by noir — Retail Value $34

Finally, we have the Fontana Fringe earrings by noir brand. These earrings with their hammered metal and beaded fringe remind me of handmade beauties I have seen at local craft shows and Etsy shops. They have a handmade/Boho vibe, which I appreciate, but I go for even bolder and glitzier pieces. I am a sucker for acrylic and glitter-filled accessories, what can I say? The earrings are rather lightweight and incredibly easy to wear–which is a big plus!

The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was filled with some adorable pieces! My new stylist, Jackie, picked out items I feel were tailored to my style. The two dresses she selected were by far my favorite items! I loved the cold shoulder top as well. The earrings were great, but not necessarily for me– but I can see why she selected them for me! The mustard yellow top was perfect style-wise, but the fit wasn’t the greatest. I truly appreciate that my stylist took into account my feedback and utilized my Pinterest for further inspiration. I update my Pinterest boards rather regularly, so I do feel it is a helpful tool for Stitch Fix and other services. I also love the feature they provide where you can thumbs up or down items to provide further feedback to your stylist. Even though I am still working at home for all my jobs, I do still love receiving my Fixes. They are something I look forward to, especially since I rarely leave my house! It is kind of like bringing the mall retail stores to my doorstep. I was late on putting in my feedback on Jackie’s fix for her, but I am extremely excited to see what she picked out for me for my June Fix, aren’t you?

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get these pieces if you sign up today? Stitch Fix curates its Fixes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!

Value Breakdown: This personal styling service has a $20 styling fee with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside is $252. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 25% discount. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $169 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s roughly a 31% discount!

  1. We have pretty different body shapes but I love your reviews and some of the pieces you got have inspired me to try Stitch Fix because I am assured they have more “interesting” things. I don’t just want gray slacks and plain blouses.

    I like the last dress a lot but I love that cold shoulder top! You look great in it! Really you look good in most of what you get

  2. Is the Plus Size a separate subscription? I’m a 14/16 so I hover around Plus, depending on the line, and I’ve found Stitch Fix so limited in sizing. I have literally received the same shirt in different colors in different fixes. It just makes me feel like they have like 4 shirts that fit me.

  3. Cute, all of them, my favorite is the cold shoulder blouse. I love those bright bold colors. My lest favorite is the mustard yellow top, as I think florals and bright colors look beautiful on you.

  4. Wow.. My total invoice was never that low… I may have to give them a try again.. I found that it was always too costly for me.

    • The cold shoulder blouse and the knit dress are great. Normally, I don’t find the cold shoulder trend appealing.

  5. You’re my favorite model, Nicole!

    • I agree! Love me some Nic!

      • Awwwwwe! Thank you so much, Elaine!

    • I agree! Nicole is so good at these clothing reviews and I love seeing her rock the clothes. Thanks for all you do.

      • Awe thank you, Elaine! I love writing them, so it means a lot that you enjoy them so much! Thank you again!

    • Oh my goodness, thank you so much, KW! So sweet of you to say!

  6. I got that Fortune & Ivy dress, too, and LOVED the top half. Just not a big fan of the high-low trend, so I sent it back. Would LOVE to see it again with a universal hemline. :o)

    • Mel, no I get what you mean. It depends on the piece where I like the high- low trend. I always enjoy it mainly because my behind is always covered! hahaha
