Stitch Fix Plus Size Clothing August 2022 Review

Stitch Fix

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

Codie Cotton Shirt Dress by Donna Morgan, Size 22 — Retail Value $118.00, On Sale for $58.97

 

When I saw this dress that Kim selected for me, I literally gasped! The colors, the retro floral pattern, OMG! I was living for it! I did some research and I didn't realize that Maggy London is also apart of the same brand as London Times and one of my faves, Donna Morgan. I only thought to learn this info via Google because the sheet said Maggy London, but the tag on the dress said Donna Morgan. This dress is what I love about so many Donna Morgan dresses I own-- it has a retro vibe meets modern style, made with fabrics with stretch, and cuts that really flatter curvier bodies. This dress is so cute, but sadly, like so many pieces, the buttons gap like whoa on me. The dress fits me wonderfully everywhere else, but in the chest-- such a bummer! My concern is if I got the 24, it just might be too baggy all over. It fits loosely and comfortably in the arms and all over otherwise at the 22. I reluctantly opted to return this beauty. Styling on this piece was a breeze with such a bold and vibrant print! I simply topped it with earrings my friend Nicole of Dame DeVille made for me and some adorable off-white jellies from Torrid.

Remember Me Top by Sanctuary, Size 2x-Retail Value $89.00

 

Kim truly nailed it with this top. The color palette is impeccable with the ultra 70s rusts, cream, oranges, reds, and deep burgundy shades. Magnificent! I imagine this print either being an accent wallpaper or print on a couch in a sunken living room. So, yes, this greatly appeals to me! The cut on this even has a boho peasant blouse vibe. I actually reviewed a similar Sanctuary top like this for Gwynnie Bee, but in a size 3x. Different color palette and vibe completely, but same peasant top style. The 2x fits SO MUCH better. When I bent over in this top, I didn't feel exposed like I did in the 3x on the other review. This top could easily transition into early fall too with a mustard yellow pencil skirt and cream ankle booties. I did summer styling on this and paired it with the Democracy shorts Kimberly also sent me, as well as my go-to jellies from Torrid and vintage-inspired earrings from Undoubtedly Mad!

Adler Rolled Cuffed Bermuda Shorts by Democracy, Size 24, — Listed Value $78.00

 

These jean shorts are so comfortable. It can be hard finding a perfect length in shorts, I don't want them too short or too long. A lot of Bermuda style shorts are too long for me, but I actually love these. I am glad they are providing enough coverage-- no chub rub here! The denim fabric has loads of stretch and are incredibly easy to wear. These will look great with something like this Sanctuary top or a vintage band shirt, blouse, or a simple striped boatneck top and Chuck Taylors. These shorts will serve you well all summer!

Renie Knit Dress by Nine Britton, Size 3x — Retail Value $54.00

 

I love this black and white dress. A piece like this might seem like only ideal for spring and summer, but this can easily be worn into fall and even winter. In warmer months one can wear this as is like I did, just with some cute mod earrings and white Mary Janes. For another level, wear a t-shirt underneath. You could wear a solid white one or another color like pink or baby blue. You also could do some pattern clashing and put a checkerboard or striped print top underneath. Complete the outfit with sneakers or your favorite platform sandals. In the fall and winter, wear this dress with a turtleneck underneath and a big bulky cardigan or faux leather biker jacket. Complete the outfit with opaque tights and combat boots or platform Mary Janes. This dress is great to wear alone because it is immensely comfy with ample stretch. I experienced no gapping at the buttons on this one, which is a huge plus! Just bring a light summer cardigan to ensure you aren't cold on those late summer nights.

Rica Knit Crop Jumpsuit by Kaileigh, Size 3x  — Retail Value $58.00

 

Finally we have a jumpsuit from the Kaileigh brand. I don't necessarily like or dislike this piece. It just isn't wowing me, especially compared to some of the other selections from Kim. The material has spandex and a nice stretch. The jumpsuit is easy to get on and off too since it is roomy. This would look cute at work with a white t-shirt layered underneath and flats or white sneakers. I did simple styling by pairing this piece with bold cat eye glasses and my trusty white Mary Janes. Get this in at the beach with your favorite embellished sandals and a large brimmed summer hat!

The Verdict

This month's Stitch Fix was largely successful. My favorite selections from my new stylist, Kimberly, were the Donna Morgan and Nine Britton dresses. I am still sad about the fit issues on the Donna Morgan/Maggy London piece-- but she really grasped what appeals to me by sending that one my way. I actually loved every piece including the Democracy shorts and the Sanctuary top-- both really fit my style as well. The Kaileigh jumpsuit was my least favorite-- it just didn't excite me like some of the other items this month. I can already tell that Kim is ultra receptive to feedback, so I am eager to see how she and I can collaborate next month. I truly can't emphasize how important it is to provide feedback one each Fix to your Stitch Fix stylist. Not only do I provide direct feedback, but I also "bookmark" or list pieces as favorites on the site.

I sound like a broken record, but I also can't encourage enough that you provide your Pinterest and Instagram. These will be great assets to your stylist; for one they clue in your stylist on 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. Also keep in mind that you have the ability to personally select pieces for your Stitch Fix as well! The site gives you roughly a dozen items with you in mind that you can select as well for your box, so I might give that a go too! This is a wonderful option if you are a self proclaimed fatshionista shopping fiend much like moi. 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 $397. 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 $277.75 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s about a 31% discount!
