Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – July 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 July 2020 Review

This is the included invoice. It shows in detail the items selected for me and the brands, sizes, and cost of each piece. The total comes up to $213.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $97.75 total savings! That is like getting the Lucky Brand loafers for free!

As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Olivia! I am eager to see her selections alone from the thoughtful note that she left me!


Chantell Faux Wrap Jersey Knit Dress, Size 20w — Retail Value $78

This dress– wow! I immediately fell in love with the print: it reminds me of wallpaper that would be featured in a Better Homes and Gardens article in the early ’70s. Can’t you envision it too– the matching blue and white bookcase and dresser paired with green shag carpeting? I am getting heart eyes just thinking of this imaginary bedroom, I tell ya! So, yes, we have established that the print is EVERYTHING! I also love the flowy sleeves on this wrap style piece– it is absolutely beautiful! I also appreciate the ample stretch and fantastic fit; it is so comfortable to wear! To further bring out the retro vibes of this number, I styled it with wooden open-toe heels. This would be gorgeous to wear for a wedding, brunch, or at the office– when it is safe to, of course!


Dion Eyelet Stretch Knit Dress by Market & Spruce, Size 2x — Retail Value $48

The LBD (aka little black dress) is a classic staple in many wardrobes due to its versatility. A black dress can be worn for a formal or casual affair, dressed up with pearls or styled casually with a denim jacket and sneakers. This particular dress is no exception. I can imagine this piece being worn with a striped long-sleeved top layered underneath, tights, and ankle booties in the fall or worn on cooler summer night with a tied at the waist denim western long sleeve shirt and western boots or open-toe platform heels. The options are endless! As for the fit on this dress, it fit me but seemed a bit tight at the chest. I would possibly want this one in a 3x so I could layer items underneath it as well. I opted not to keep it because I have a few similar style dresses in my collection already.


Casie Frayed Cuff Denim Short by Vigoss in Olive, Size 22W — Retail Value $48

This summer has been incredibly hot, so I have been seeking new shorts. I feel like Olivia read my mind by sending me a pair to try on. It may be me being a total stickler, but I feel that these are a wee bit too low. I love pants and shorts to be high waisted– I love the look on my frame AND they are way more comfortable to wear. I generally don’t go for olive for shorts either, but I think even if I had received these in a dark blue or black denim I still would want them to be higher than this pair. The pros of this pair: they give are the perfect length. They aren’t Bermuda length, but they aren’t Daisy Dukes either. You could easily wear these for a work or family function and not have to worry one bit about coverage. I opted to style these shorts with a Ramones T-shirt, aviators, and some black jelly shoes, AKA, my summer shoe of choice! These would look adorable paired with a cream, orange, and yellow striped T-shirt and sandals or a cute sleeveless button-down as well.


Stevie Knit Skirt by Gilli, Size 2x — Retail Value $48

I can tell my new stylist, Olivia, perused my Pinterest. This skirt looks like something I would pin to one of my fashion boards. The retro triangle print against the hunter green is adorable! This circle skirt is fantastic for summer since it is lightweight, yet rather stretchy. I can see wearing this with a loose black tank top, a longer necklace that hits the waist, and tan flats for a put-together, yet comfortable ensemble. This skirt will easily transition into fall and winter months by styling it with a black turtleneck, black tights, and red or tan ankle booties or a T-shirt and cardigan with loafers. I opted to style this piece with Fall in mind by wearing it with a black off-the-shoulder bodysuit from an upcoming ShoeDazzle review and the Lucky Brand loafers Olivia picked out for me!


Adelha Loafer by Lucky Brand — Retail Value $89

Lucky Brand is known for making earthy, relaxed pieces often in leather or suede. These loafers are no exception. The loafers are made of a soft, buttery, suede-like material. They have some stretch and give and fit, but there was something about these that I didn’t like. I think the issue I had was how high the loafer tongue is– it almost touches my ankle. Due to my instep being high as well, I tend to prefer my loafers’ tongue to be a bit shorter and closer to my toes. I know, I am a weirdo– but I know what I like! However, even though these didn’t work out for me, I do like the style overall. These would look great with skinny leg jeans and a roomy sweater or a plaid skirt and knee socks this fall especially!

The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was filled with some fantastic pieces from my new stylist, Olivia! My favorite item, far and away, was the Chantell Faux Wrap Dress. Those flowy short bell sleeves– what a lovely touch! I like the direction that Olivia was going in for our first box together, but I do plan on providing feedback. I can’t say this enough: to ensure you get the best Fix, make sure to provide feedback for each one you receive, provide your Instagram or Pinterest links for your stylist’s inspiration, and also play the game on their site that lets you pick your favorite pieces out. The one thing I genuinely look forward to during the quarantine, though I rarely leave my house, are styling services like Stitch Fix. They have been a constant in a time that lacks them! It is like having the mall come to me since I haven’t been to one since March. Are you as eager as I am to see what I receive in my August Fix?

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 $311. 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 $213.25 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

  1. I really love the casual look, the shorts and T-Shirt. I agree the black dress is a bit snug. I do love that Ramones T-shirt.

  2. So I have been reading all of your fashion reviews for months now and I decided to try DIA awhile back (because I love the styles they send you the most out of all the clothing boxes you review) but was super disappointed in their customer service so I decided not to go through with it. Since then I have been thinking that of all the boxes you review, Stitch Fix seems like it would be the best fit for me overall so I went for it and got my first box last Saturday!

    To anyone on the fence I say GO FOR IT! It was so much fun. And I was very pleased with the items I was sent even though I didn’t keep everything, I did mention that I needed new jeans and the pair they sent me were absolutely perfect. So perfect that I didn’t take them off for the rest of the day after I tried them on. I cannot believe my first time with a box styling service resulted in perfect jeans. Jeans are so hard to find for me. I am a 16/18 and 5’3″ with an ample derriere so I am just blown away because everything in my first box fit perfectly!

    I also tired out their “Extras”. This is where you can add items like socks, underwear, cami’s, etc to be shipped with your order. I have to wear nude hose to work everyday and they are pricey and hard to find in a true nude color. They are truly the bane of my existence. I cannot tell you how much time/money/grief goes into my nude hose problem. I took a shot with theirs and they are also perfect. And affordable! And they WILL SHIP THEM TO ME!! I am just truly amazed and wish I wouldn’t have waited this long to try Stitch Fix. I got 4 pairs of hose and 2 cami’s (one nude, one black) and kept them all along with the jeans.

    I am so excited for next month. Thank you Nicole for these awesome reviews every month. I would have never gone for it with out them. 🙂

    • Joy-Not the Other One, this makes me so dang happy! That is so wonderful you had an amazing experience with them! I have never tried the extras option from them, but I think that is such a rad feature/service. Plus, Stitch Fix has their own in house lines that you can’t find anywhere else– they are so worth while! And omg, you are right on finding the perfect jeans: the struggle is real! If I find a pair I like, I tend to get two or three of them. I don’t play! hahaha.
      It also makes my day to hear my reviews mean so much to you and helped you try out such a great service! That is awesome!

  3. I can’t stop laughing over the description of the Chantell faux wrap dress! Gabba gabba hey!

    • Awe, well, it definitely had that feel to me, jaq! I love anything retro with that vibe for sure. And gabba gabba hey and a hey ho let’s go to ya! Hope you are having a great Tuesday!

  4. I love that dress😍 Are you going to be doing the new Eloquii Box?

    • Awe thank you, Jenn! I love it too. And omg, I would absolutely love to. Eloquii is one of my favorite brands.

  5. I love that first dress on you, but the rest of the pieces don’t seem very “Nicole” to me.

    • Thanks, Randie. I think they were alright, but yeah I like some super bold colors and prints for sure! I am probably an unusual breed for most stylists! hahaha

  6. Where did you get the jelly shoes? Those were my favorite back in the day.

    • Thanks, Katie! I got them from American Apparel a few years back. I have seen them though on poshmark and ebay!

  7. The dresses look really cute on you! I love love love that Ramones Tshirt!

    • Thank you, San! I love that dress so much. Believe it or not, I found that in the juniors department at Kohls. Size xxl fit me great!
