Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – October 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 October 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 $119.50 after all the discounts if I opt to keep everything—which is a $66.50 total savings! That is like getting the Hiatus and Simply Be tops for free!


As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Jennifer! Jen started styling me in the last month or so and I am eager to see her selections. She certainly gave some awesome styling tips as well!


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? I have a pair of snakeskin booties I keep finding myself eyeballing each month!


Now onto this month’s selections, shall we?


Analis Graphic Knit Tee by Hiatus, Size 3x — Retail Value $34.00

My stylist selected this graphic t-shirt for me. The fabric is super soft and the fit is fantastic. I like that she sent me a size larger so that it is extra roomy. I wouldn’t probably select this shirt for myself: I do own and wear a lot of t-shirts, but I am very picky about what designs I get. Overall, though I can see this looking great paired with jeans and sneakers or with a mini skirt and booties like I did.


Veron Knit Snake Print Skirt by Gilli, Size 3x — Retail Value $44.00

Over the years, I have grown to love snake print items. I love the print on this skirt because unless you get close up, you would just assume it is a standard black mini skirt. However, this piece doesn’t have a lot of stretch and is a bit short. My body has been changing and this piece was tighter than I prefer. Bodies fluctuate, especially during a pandemic, and that’s okay! I am glad to be healthy and safe – and I can be kind to my body while also recognizing that this piece creates discomfort due to the tightness on my tummy and behind. I love dressing in snugger cuts, but this was a piece that I didn’t want to sit in due to how tight it felt on me. If the brand offered a 4x, I would be down to try that to see if it fits me better! Otherwise, I think this would look awesome with a t-shirt like I styled the piece, but also with tights, booties, and a turtleneck sweater in cooler months.


Claudia Ruched Sleeve Blouse by Papermoon, Size 3x — Retail Value $38.00

My stylist, Jennifer, selected this very retro top for me – and I love it! The peach shade is warm, yet delicate. The print reminds me of something from the 90s, but with a modern twist. The fabric isn’t terribly stretchy, so I appreciate that she sized up in this for me too. This would look fantastic at the office (at home or otherwise) paired with black dress pants and a blazer or a skirt or skinny leg jeans and flats for a night out.


Warren Blouse by Simply Be, Size 18W  — Retail Value $32.00

I was slightly fearful that this top may not fit, but it actually did! I would probably go a size up because it is a bit snug on the chest, but I love this piece otherwise. This was the item I was least excited about upon unboxing that I actually enjoyed the most. The mixed floral patterns, flutter sleeves, and ruffles on the chest and at the waist give a Boho vibe. I love this styled with the mini skirt Jen sent me along with off white cowboy booties, but I could see a modern-day flower child rocking this top with a pair of light or medium wash flare leg jeans and a layered beaded necklace.


Paulsen Brushed Knit Top by Market & Spruce, Size 2x— Retail Value $38.00

Since I am working from home for both jobs these days, I have increased my loungewear wardrobe by double or triple. I have been requesting sweaters, leggings, and sweatshirts from my subscription services since March; so it is no surprise my stylist sent me this piece. This knit top is light enough for layers, but thick enough to keep you cozy. It has an athletic style to it with the striped sleeves – it makes me think of baseball raglan style shirts. I opted to wear it with black leggings and my Reebok retro-style sneaker for extreme comfort!

The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix was filled with some versatile pieces. Though the skirt had some fit issues, I was able to style it with multiple pieces in this month’s Fix for very different looks! I love finding versatile items for my wardrobe like that – I love options! I didn’t fall head over heels in love with any of the pieces in particular, but I can see why Jennifer selected each for me. I feel as though she truly kept me in mind while styling this October Fix. I cannot suggest enough to provide feedback every month directly to your stylist, always give links to your Instagram and Pinterest for further inspiration, and play the preferences game on the Stitch Fix site itself. It really gives a visual idea of what may appeal to you to create a perfect Fix experience. Also keep in mind now that Stitch Fix allows you to shop on their site for clothing items, accessories, foundation garments, and also shoes! I don’t know about you, but I am very excited to see what Jen sends my way in November!

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 $186. 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 $119.50 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

  1. I love you reviews

  2. You look fantastic. I agree that the mini would look great with tights and boots- or even capri tights and ballet flats … Love that lounge top with the stripey arms.

  3. I got that same top in my last box and I absolutely love it. It is SO comfortable. Perfect for a casual day or lounging around in. I ended up keeping it.

    That striped sweater is great! Fingers crossed I get it in my upcoming box!
