Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing Review – July 2021
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 five 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 Review – July 2021
As always, I received this handy sheet with a note from this month’s stylist, Sara McKenzie. I am excited to see what she selected for me! I love these sheets and how they show you visual styling for each item you receive – it is so incredibly helpful! Stitch Fix also includes a pre-paid envelope to mail back all any items you don’t wish to keep and an invoice that details the brands, sizes, and cost of each piece selected for me. The total comes up to $221.50 if I opt to keep everything—which is a $100.50 savings! That is like getting the Donna Morgan dress for free!
Let’s take a look at this month’s selections, shall we?
Mandie Button Front Jumpsuit by Market & Spruce, Size 22 — Retail Value $78.00
I must say, I absolutely love this jumpsuit. The fabric has loads of stretch and the cut and style of this one make it incredibly easy to get on and off. The raspberry jewel-tone shade is great for summer, but one can make a jumpsuit like this work all year! I did notice what looks like an undone seam, but that is an easy fix. I wanted to show this versatile beauty styled in two different ways. The first styling features white ankle booties and black and white flower power earrings from one of my fave Etsy shops, Ziggy Pop Shop!
For the second look, I wanted to show how this jumpsuit would look layered. I have on a thin, mesh short-sleeved shirt with a very 90s does 60s/70s flower print, lilac jelly flats, blue glitter Elizabeth style glasses from Wherelight, and green and pink keychains from Blush Daisy that I turned into earrings. I love this look because I feel like something from the 60s Laugh In or Dating Game sets! You could easily style this piece with a turtleneck, jacket, and boots in the fall as well. So many looks from one single piece– I am here for it!
Trucker Split-Neck Textured Knit Top by Papermoon, Size 2x — Retail Value $44.00
I love the blues in this top, don’t you? The shades of powder blue and cobalt are so lovely together. I also appreciate that the print is a bit of an abstract leopard print. The fabric has some stretch too, which is greatly appreciated! I am not sure if I am wowed by this top, but it could certainly look adorable paired with light blue dress pants and a blazer or a black pencil skirt for the office.
Erika Skinny Distressed Jean by Vigoss, Size 22w — Retail Value $68.00
I love the Vigoss brand– I have a few pairs of shorts by them that I absolutely love. These jeans fit well and have ample stretch, but I am not a big fan of them. I am not into the lighter rinse and I am not fond of the distressed marks and holes. Not my cup of tea, but that isn’t to say they won’t be for someone else! I styled them with the top from Papermoon, but imagine these with ankle booties, your favorite vintage raglan band shirt, and some oversized round sunglasses. It would be a killer look!
Linette Split-Neck Smocked Blouse by Fun2Fun, Size 2x — Retail Value $44.00
I was so close to keeping this blouse, yinz. I adore the retro-inspired floral print and the red, white, and blue color palette. The cut on this even has a vintage feel. The fabric has some stretch, but the cut is perfect and not too tight on the hips! I even liked how it looked without being tucked into my jeans.
However, I prefer how it looks tucked into my dark rinse, high waist jeans. I topped off the outfit with some red Doc Marten’s sandals as well to tie everything together! This top would look great with shorts and flats as well as a skater skirt and stacked platform sandals for a 70s inspired look!
Mavin Split Neck Dress by Donna Morgan, Size 20w— Retail Value $88.00
I felt compelled to save the very best for last– this geometric print Donna Morgan dress. This dress reminds me of one I had in college that was very mid-60s inspired. The cut is roomy and the fabric has ample stretch, so this fits perfectly. This is a piece I would have worn to work when I was in an office, but also on an after-shift rendezvous for cocktails. This dress doesn’t need a lot of styling– it looks fantastic simply with glasses and flats. This will also look fabulous with tights, ankle booties, and a faux leather biker jacket in the cooler months. And yes, I did keep this one– how could I not?
The Verdict: This month’s Stitch Fix truly felt like it was selected just for me– good job, Sara! I truly felt seen with the selections this month, especially the Donna Morgan dress! This box had the bold colors and vibrant prints that I have been craving! If you can’t tell, there is nothing about my appearance or tastes that are subtle or muted; I naturally go for bright colors and eccentric prints! The only piece I wasn’t terribly keen on were the Vigoss jeans, but everything else was rather spot on! I know I sound like a broken record, but I always provide feedback and try to update my Pinterest every couple of months and include my Instagram link. It is so imperative because it gives my stylist a better idea of my personality, my activities, and what kind of clothing I prefer to wear. You can also “bookmark” items in their shop and do their style quiz on the Stitch Fix site! I like to send the links to items from their shop section directly in my feedback as well. This all assists your stylist in creating a box truly tailored to you and your tastes. If you prefer to not get a monthly Style Fix– no biggie, yinz! Stitch Fix now allows you to shop on their site for clothing items, accessories, foundation garments, and also shoes without getting a monthly Stitch Fix sent to you! I am so pleased with what Sara sent my way– I don’t know about you all, but I am pumped to see what she sends me next month!
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 $322. 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 $221.50 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!
