Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – August 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 August 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 $211.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $90.50 total savings! That is like getting the Willet knit skirt and Nakamol earrings 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! Hang in there, Olivia– I know homeschooling can be tough! You got this!


Cyndie Jersey Dress by Wisp, Size 20w — Retail Value $68

I love warm tones like oranges (if that wasn’t already evident), yellows, reds, and pinks– so I was excited for this Boho-style printed piece. The dress has ample stretch and is incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. I decided to bring out the orange shades in this dress by styling it with retro orange glasses from and retro jellies. I feel like a sunset personified in this number! You can wear this dress even on cooler days paired with a mustard yellow cardigan and flats. This piece is ideal for summer weddings, family events, and is also a fantastic addition to one’s business casual wardrobe.


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

My stylist is aware of my love of golden and mustard yellows, so it comes as no surprise this skirt was also included in this month’s Fix. Yellow isn’t the primary color in this piece, but a fabulous accent against the navy, teal, and white palette. The skirt is easy to wear due to the stretchy, soft knit. The length is ideal too because my behind is fully covered even when I bend over– big plus! I paired the skirt with a plain black top, jelly flats, and the Paula necklace she selected for me as well. I can also envision this looking adorable in the fall with a white pussybow blouse, a yellow or teal cardigan, black tights, Oxford flats, and a pair of cat-eye glasses for a retro ensemble!


Paula Hammered Oval Fringe Pendant by Catherine Malandrino — Retail Value $60

Nothing about me is diminutive or delicate; I tend to go after bold statement jewelry pieces that fit my personality and stature alike. This necklace certainly fits the bill with the large, golden, hammered oval disks and waterfall of gold chains. I appreciate the length because it hits me right on my chest above my belly too. This will look awesome with anything from a flowy, floral print, maxi, Boho dress and cowboy booties to an A-line shift dress and pointy-toe flats.


Blaire Beaded Dangle Drop Earrings by Nakamol,  — Retail Value $38

These earrings made me gasp out loud! They are so unique, earthy, yet incredibly flashy. The various gold and yellow beads against the turquoise beading are beautiful! I almost kept these, but then eyeballed the huge Caboodle that holds the costume jewelry in my rotation (this is not accounting for the other boxes and containers I have in my bedroom– do I have a problem?) and opted against keeping them. I love the gold, but I find myself wearing silver more these days. Regardless, these beauties would add glamour and sass to any outfit, whether it be a T-shirt and jeans or a printed jumpsuit!


Regita Jumpsuit by B Collection by BOBEAU — Retail Value $68

Speaking of printed jumpsuits, when I initially saw this one, I was beyond excited! I was hook, line, and sinker in love with the orange shade and the retro pebble dot print. However, upon further inspection of the fabric and the item itself– I knew there was no way this was going to fit me. I tried to get it on, and yeah… I took it off in fear I would damage the jumpsuit. A 2x in dresses and tops fit me, but jumpsuits and bottoms I usually am a solid 22/3x. What can I say, I got hips and a backside that just won’t quit!  I generally have to get a jumpsuit in a stretchy material as well to ensure it fits me both in the top and bottom as well. What a bummer!

Even though this didn’t fit me, I still have ideas on how to style this cutie of a piece. I would pair it with glasses similar to my oversized peachy tan glasses (pictured), layered chain necklaces, and embellished sandals. I would also want to amp the vintage vibes and pair this jumpsuit with oversized, round, brown ’70s style sunglasses, big flower power acrylic earrings, and open-toed mustard yellow platform wedges for extra retro goodness!

The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was filled with some stunning pieces from my stylist, Olivia!  I actually liked every piece selected for me, especially the jumpsuit before I realized it wasn’t going to fit me. I feel, though, that my stylist truly has a gauge for what I like by the pieces she picked out for me in my July and now August Fixes.  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. I don’t know about you guys, but I have had the fortune to work from home since March. I am glad my coworkers and I are safe, but I miss my dressing up in “real” clothes. I miss going out to a club on a Saturday night with my girls. Heck, I truly miss going to shopping malls and just spending hours looking at and trying on clothing. I think that is why I appreciate Stitch Fix so much. It is like having the mall brought right to my doorstep! I get to try on clothes and imagine where I would go with each piece I try! I am looking forward to when it is safe to wear all these fashions at my old haunts, but ’til then I am eager to see what my stylist will be sending me in my September fix, aren’t you?

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 $191.50 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

  1. Lovely review as always. I received my second Stitch Fix on Saturday and I was DEVASTATED because they sent a GORGEOUS pair of suede TOMS flats in LEOPARD PRINT (which is my favorite color) but I have never been able to wear TOMS because my feet are wide. It was a sad moment. They also included a cute leopard print shirt so I settled for that! 🙂

    Would you mind sharing the brand/shade of lipstick you are wearing in the close up picture of you in the earrings? I absolutely love it. That is an great picture of you BTW.

    • Joy-Not-the Other One, thanks for taking the time to read my review and comment! I appreciate it so much! Sorry about those leopard print Toms! I feel your pain when it comes to wide feet (with an obscene high instep to boot over here!)! After I broke one of my feet, that has only made it more difficult to find shoes that fit well! So, I can totally relate! However, I am excited you found a leopard print shirt! That is definitely a score! As for the lipstick, I do believe it is Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink lipstick in Globetrotter. That is my favorite liquid lip and one of my favorite colors. They have a special line currently that is devoted to coffees and teas. They smell so heavenly. The Chai one smells like Chai! But yes, the lipstick is like the Engergizer Bunny of the cosmetics/lipstick world, I tell ya! You need some Pond’s cold cream to remove it– it is that good! Thanks again!

  2. Thanks for the review! You look amazing with these selections! Too bad the last one didn’t fit, I really wanted to see that one too. I think it would look great on you! Those earrings are perfect with your hair style too!

    • Heather, thank you so much! I truly appreciate your kind words. I was bummed about that jumpsuit too– it was the perfect orange shade! Fantastic for summer and fall! And yes, those earrings were stunning!

  3. Great review, you look fab in everything! I was just thinking today how much I miss dressing for work. I love summer clothes and it makes me sad to walk into my closet and see all the pretty summery outfits I’m not wearing. Whereas I hate fall and winter clothes and that’s what I’ll be wearing when we return to the office.

    • Thank you, Kristin! Right? When I had to dress for work, I would hate it. Now that I roll out of the bed in either a pajama or caftan, I miss at it instances. But then again, I do love being able to wake up late and still have enough time to take a bath and have a quick breakfast. I guess I will have to settle for fashion shows in my house alone for the time being. Summer is my favorite time of year along with fall (I am a big fan of Halloween!), but I am not too fond of winter myself. I hate the shorter, colder, darker days! Blah! One plus to think about is once it hits the winter solstice, that will be our shortest day and they will slowly get longer again. Positive thoughts, right? Maybe try to see if some of your summer pieces can translate to the cooler weather too, that might make it feel less dreary. Thanks again for taking the time to read my review!

  4. That first dress just screams “Nicole” to me.

    • Awe thank you, Randie! I love that one too! So many beautiful, warm toned shades!

  5. Wow, in no way does that jumpsuit look like a 2x! I typically wear a size 16/x-large in clothing and from the looks of it, I don’t think I could comfortably wear it. I love jumpsuits so much(at least the idea of them), but I have issues finding one that fits like I want it to. BTW, I have some serious envy over your orange jellies!

    • Thank you, Jamie! It looks a little smaller due to the waist tie, but yeah it is pretty small and the fabric had no give. It was not happening for me! haha. And thank you on the jellies. I got them through American Apparel a few years back! I see them on sites like Poshmark and Ebay periodically. Since they are out of season, you might find a killer deal on them! Thanks again, Jamie!

  6. Thank you for always sharing styling tips. I appreciate and enjoy your reviews very much!

    • Awe, Ammie! You are very welcome! It means so much to me that you enjoy my reviews and took the time to comment. I love envisioning pieces and how I would wear them in different ways, it helps me justify the cost and/or determine the value. Plus, I love having fun putting things together. I was just looking at some stuff I received for my Gwynnie Bee box and I am so excited to take pics because of how I plan to style one of the pieces. Don’t mind my rambling! Anyhow, thanks again, Ammie!
