Who wouldn’t want to have a personal stylist to help them discover the latest trends that best suit them? Well, with Wantable and Stitch Fix that’s exactly what you get! Both styling services send members subscription boxes with 5-7 items of clothing and accessories based on a style quiz. Your stylist picks out items for you and there is a $20 styling fee that will be applied to any purchase you make. You get to try on clothes in the comfort of your own home and you only have to keep what you love.
Not only are these clothing subscription boxes fun and convenient, but you can also save money too! If you purchase all the items in your Stitch Fix box you'll receive a 25% discount, while if you keep 5 items or more from your Wantable box you'll enjoy a 20% discount on your total purchase. On the surface, these clothing subscriptions are very similar but there are slight differences upon closer inspection.

Here's a quick overview of each service:

Wantable vs. Stitch Fix - Plans & Pricing
Wantable offers a women's style edit as well as a women's active edit (there's also a men's active edit) that features workout clothes and loungewear. Wantable offers plus sizes up to 3X (same as Stitch Fix) but does not currently carry maternity sizes. They also offer limited-time Themed edits (i.e. Home for the Holidays).
For every edit, there is a $20 styling fee that goes towards any purchase you make from your edit. If you keep 5 or more items, you'll receive a 20% discount. Wantable's products typically range from $50-$100 per item and your stylist can also find items at your desired price point.
Stitch Fix offers styling for women's, men's, and children's clothing and accessories. For women's styling, Stitch Fix offers plus size, petite, and maternity sizing. For men's styling, they offer big and tall sizes, and for kids' styles, they offer fits for toddlers, kids, and tweens.
For every Stitch Fix plan, there is a $20 styling fee and you receive a $20 credit for any purchase you make from your Fix. If you keep all 5 items, you receive a 25% discount that is applied before the $20 credit.
For women's and men's clothing, the prices range from $25 - $500, while kids' items start at $10. You can set your price preferences for different categories, so your stylist can select items within your budget.
Wantable vs. Stitch Fix - How it Works
Wantable works in much the same way as Stitch Fix, with a stylist who hand-picks items for you based on a comprehensive style survey. Wantable also wants to surprise and hopefully delight you with their selections, so you don't see your picks until your subscription box arrives at your door. However, Wantable features a Wantable Stream that lets members request and decline items. Your stylist will prioritize items that you've requested from the Stream based on availability and you won't receive any items that you decline.
While Wantable's discount is less than Stitch Fix's, you only need to purchase 5 of the 7 items to receive the discount (as opposed to having to purchase all 5 of the items Stitch Fix sends you), which gives members a bit more wiggle room to activate their discount. Something that Wantable offers that Stitch Fix doesn't is the ability to exchange items that will count towards your discount if you end up purchasing the new item. Stitch Fix also offers free exchanges but you don't receive a Buy All discount unless you purchase all of the items from a Fix.
After choosing your Stitch Fix plan and filling out an in-depth style profile, you're ready to receive your first Fix. Your answers to the style questionnaire will inform which items you receive but you can also leave a detailed note to your stylist and even create a Pinterest board for your stylist to work off of. You won't be able to see what you're getting before your Fix but you're under no obligation to buy anything you don't love – although you will lose out on your $20 credit if you don't purchase anything from your Fix.
Aside from the 5 clothing and accessories (bags, shoes, and jewelry) items in your subscription box, you can also request 'extras' to be added to Women's, Men's, and Maternity Fixes. Stitch Fix Extras are essentials that you can add to your order and include items such as socks, undergarments, and other basics, as well as any variety of limited-time items. Your $20 styling fee can be applied towards the purchase of Extras but your purchase of Extras does not count toward the Buy All discount.
