Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing May 2022 Review

Stitch Fix
3.5 overall rating

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 our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we conduct reviews.)

First Impressions

 

Let's take a look at this month's selections, shall we?

What's Inside This Month's Fix

Lilly Sleep & Lounge Recycled Polyester Thermal Henley & Legging Set in Dark Pink, Size 3x — Retail Value $54.00

 

My stylist, Torey, is aware I have been working at home for some time due to my feedback with each Fix. I love that she included a two-piece lounge set for me to wear. However, I am not sure if this lounge outfit is my style. Fit, yes, because I often prefer things more form fitting than an incredibly loose fit. I am not feeling this dusty mauve color-- I am sorry! I makes me think of my childhood in the 80s where my mother's home decor was a sea of mauve and cornflower blue with a sprinkling of country geese! I love retro styles, but that can stay buried in my memory, please and thanks! The heart print on the thermal leggings is adorable and I love that the material is made from recycled polyester-- that is wonderful! Maybe if this was in a different color I would be more into this outfit. I know, I am super picky, but that isn't to say I dislike the set as a whole-- it just isn't for me.

Rogue Ribbed Front Cross Knit by Nine Britton in Burgundy, Size 2x — Retail Value $40.00

 

Torey picked out this raspberry, ribbed, front cross top for me as well. I wasn't completely in love with the top. It fit, but I am curious how a 3x would have fit. Though the fabric is incredibly stretchy, it still felt a little too snug-- even for me! We know I don't shy away from tight clothing, but I was not feeling this one, sadly! This top is a rich shade that would be great in the fall, but can be worn in spring weather as well-- just pair it with an orange or pastel pink to lighten the tone a bit.

Fia Pull On Ankle Pant by Tribal, Size 24w, similar found here — Retail Value $58.00

 

These pants from Tribal certainly would have been ideal for when I was still reporting to work at the office. The faint, sultry, reptilian print is subdued enough to be worn at the office with a button down blouse and heels, but can also be worn with your favorite vintage band shirt, biker jacket, and oxfords at your favorite club to see a band play with friends as well. The fabric has ample stretch and the pants are easy to get on and off-- chic AND comfortable!

Naomi Square Neck Cropped Knit Top by LUSH, Size 2x — Retail Value $40.00

 

Don't you just love this rich teal shade? I love this top because it is sexy and cute, but I don't feel extremely exposed. The top is described as being cropped, but this seems a bit longer on my frame. The fabric has lots of give and stretch-- which I absolutely love. I am in between sizes these days, so having pieces that can be worn at various sizes is an absolute must! I opted to pair this beauty with the skort Torey selected for me, but this could be styled a number of ways! This would look great with wide legged dress pants and a blazer or paired with high-waisted skinny leg jeans and open toe platforms for a more casual ensemble.

Remington Slit Pocket Skort by Tribal, Size 24w  — Retail Value $54.00

 

Initially when I saw this grey skirt, I simply assumed it was a standard skirt. No, friends-- THIS IS A SKORT! I often wear tights or bike shorts under skirts, so I was excited to see these built in shorts. The shorts are incredibly comfortable, as is the skirt portion. The material has a lot of stretch and fits well. It is a smidge tight since you can see the entire outline of my dupa, but that is the norm for one blessed with an ample behind. This skort could easily be worn all year, especially in spring and summer to eliminate chub rub! Wear this piece with your favorite striped shirt, sneakers, and jean jacket or in cooler months with patterned tights, booties, and a black bell-sleeve top.

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't the worst either. I didn't hate the pieces my stylist, Torey, sent me, but I wasn't terribly excited either. The lounge set was good in theory since I am always home, but I wasn't feeling the design or color. The grey skort by Tribal might be my favorite piece due to its versatility. Had that skirt been in black, I might have kept it since I don't wear a lot of greys or tans in my wardrobe. Even though this Fix didn't have me amped, I know Torey will slay next month. Torey is always incredibly receptive to my feedback; I always feel heard! I can't emphasize how important it is to collaborate with your Stitch Fix stylist. Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list  pieces as favorites on the site.

Also, provide your Pinterest and Instagram-- these will give your stylist an idea of your body shape and what styles and fit you prefer. Providing all this information  makes it easier for your stylist to be able to curate items for your dream Fix. Do keep in mind that you also have the ability to personally select pieces for your Stitch Fix as well! This is a wonderful option if you are a self proclaimed shopping fiend much like me. Were you also aware that 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? This is ideal if you aren't interested in getting a monthly Fix. You can check out their site and buy their in-house brands outright! With all these ways to enjoy Stitch Fix, you simply cannot lose!

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 $210. 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 $142.50 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!

I do not subscribe to this box but I absolutely love looking at your reviews. I love the fact that you have such great confidence and really bring these outfits to life. I would wear the lounge set all day if I could, I love the color and the style. The raspberry shirt as well as the teal are beautiful colors and the style is great. I think you did an excellent job as always modeling these. Please keep up the good work.
