Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – November 2020
Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey of your sizes, your style, and your 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 November 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 $218.25 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $72.75 total savings! That is like getting the Daniel Rainn top for free!
As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Amber! I could be wrong, but I am not sure if Amber has ever styled me before! I am excited to see what she selected for me this month!
I love these sheets and how they show you visual styling for each item you receive – it is so incredibly helpful!
This postcard was also included to give information on how to shop on the Stitch Fix site as well – pretty cool right? There is a pair of pink snakeskin booties I keep suggesting to my stylists. Fingers crossed they’re sent to me someday in a Fix!
Finally, as always, Stitch Fix also includes a pre-paid envelope to mail back all my returns. You might not be able to tell, but this is large enough to hold every piece you receive. The size of the envelope isn’t a concern though, because I bet you are keeping everything your stylist sends, right?
Now onto this month’s selections, shall we?
Folane Surplice Wrap Blouse by City Chic, Size 18w — Retail Value $59.00
Regrets? I have some. For one, returning this beautiful blouse. The more I look at pics of it, the more I wish I had kept this beauty. Initially, I was concerned it wouldn’t fit, but it actually did rather well. The overlay is a nearly transparent black and white polka dot, but the underlay is a stretchy black material. The short bell sleeves, the deep v-cut, and the flowy wrap style make this so flattering to wear. I love that they also opted not to layer fabric on the sleeves making it more transparent and airy. I opted to do simple styling with the black pants that Amber also selected for me, along with flats, and flower power earrings from the PBundJ Etsy shop! This would look as fantastic styled with the same pants, but with booties and a big faux fur coat for something more decadent. This will also obviously be a go-to piece in Spring and Summer for a light, romantic look!
Abrianna Longsleeve Knit Cardigan by Mix by 41 Hawthorne in Mustard, Size 2x — Retail Value $38.00
My new stylist, Amber, probably could tell by my previous feedback and Pinterest that I am truly a sucker for anything that is mustard yellow. I also love a roomy/long cardigan to wear in the winter, especially when I was at the office. A piece like this is fantastic because it adds the perfect pop of color to either an all black ensemble or slightly subdues a printed piece.
Also, due to how the front of this sweater is longer and comes more to a point, you can even mix things up by tying it under the chest to give a more empire fit to an outfit. It is wild how much this changes the same outfit, right? A piece like this is also versatile enough that you can wear it all year long– during winter with a blouse and jeans or on those cooler summer nights with a tank and shorts.
Jacqueline Skinny Pants by Liverpool, Size 22w — Retail Value $78.00
I love a black skinny leg jean/pant and these are no exception. These were a slight bit tight but fit rather well due to the ample stretch in the fabric. They hugged every swerve and curve of mine like a dream. They aren’t as high of a waist as I usually go for, but not too shabby! These obviously look fantastic with the City Chic top, but these are so versatile you can wear them with loafers and a sweater at the office or with your favorite cropped t-shirt, statement earrings, sneakers, and faux leather biker jacket when you are out and about. That $78 price tag stings a bit, but when you think of how much wear you will get from these pants– it is a good value!
Ari V Neck Pullover by Daniel Rainn, Size 2x — Retail Value $68.00
Normally, I wouldn’t select this top for myself, but I was surprised to actually like it once I tried it on! The coral, pale peach, and different shades of pinks stand out incredibly well against the black background of this knit top. This would definitely be something I would wear to the office if I was not working from home. The styling on this was effortless but still provided chic results by pairing the pullover with the Liverpool pants, red glitter Lola cat eyeglasses from Wherelight, and tasseled loafer style mules. This would look great with a rust or muted baby pink mini-skirt, black tights, and Maryjane style shoes for a put-together retro ensemble.
Mely Single Cold Shoulder Knit Top by Market & Spruce in Olive, Size 2x— Retail Value $48.00
Finally, we got this cold shoulder sweater from Stitch Fix‘s in-house brand, Market & Spruce. If you weren’t aware, Market & Spruce and 21 Hawthorne are both exclusive brands from Stitch Fix! Normally, I am rather ambivalent about cold shoulder tops– but this one works! It is cozy but gives that Flash Dance Steel City girl going out on a Saturday night vibes that I like. I opted to give it some rock’n’roll-y energy by styling this light, stretchy, sweater with the same skinny leg pants included in this month’s fix, as well as some studded silver hoops and snakeskin booties for extra measure. This could also be softened easily with wide-legged paper bag style pants and flats for an immensely comfy and cozy, yet roomy outfit perfect for working at home or binge-watching Netflix shows in style!
The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was filled with some awesome selections. My far and away favorite was the City Chic wrap blouse– the fit and style were fantastic. I love a versatile piece like that that has the ability to be worn to work or on a date, or in a more casual setting as well. My month’s stylist, Amber, truly created a fix that complements one another. She was smart to include the pants with various tops for multiple, effortless looks! Working from home for both my jobs, I think it is key to have comfortable, yet well-styled looks. It makes you feel like you have at least a slither of the old “normal.” I can tell that Amber had to have looked at my Pinterest and Instagram– this box feels tailored to me. I know I sound like a broken record, but I cannot suggest enough that you take the time out to provide feedback every month directly to your stylist. Make sure to not only provide feedback but also supply your stylist with your Pinterest and Instagram links and play the preferences game on the Stitch Fix site itself. It helps your stylist by providing a visual aid, like a dream board, of what you are interested in to ensure you get the best styling! Also like the postcard earlier in the review mentions, keep in mind now that Stitch Fix allows you to shop on their site for clothing items, accessories, foundation garments, and also shoes! I am eager to see what Amber sends my way in December, 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 $291. 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 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $218.25 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!
