Stitch Fix Plus Size Review
Stitch Fix Plus Size Review
Did you know that Stitch Fix now caters to plus sizes? I was thrilled to learn that the online styling service expanded its offerings and now has options for women sizes 00-24W and XS-3X (also petite and maternity options!) and has men’s sizes XS-XXL. I knew that I had to try them out, but I’ve been dragging my feet. Ordering online is a notoriously risky business, and I’m a blogger, so it takes a lot to impress me in the fashion department. So…can an online stylist really pick out plus size clothing that I will love and that will fit me? Here’s the verdict from my very first Stitch Fix box. Read all about it in this Stitch Fix Plus Size Review and get your first month’s styling fee waived with this link!

When I filled out my style profile, I asked for adventurous statement pieces and described my style as classic, glamorous, romantic, preppy, and edgy. I indicated that I definitely am NOT a jeans/tshirt gal – I prefer dresses and bold choices.
These are the items that came in my January box.
While these items aren’t as adventurous or as bold as I might have wanted, I liked everything that the stylist picked out and the fit on everything was great. I ended up keeping 3/5 items! Read on to find out what I loved, what I liked and what ultimately went back in the bag!
Marc New York Jensen Faux Fur Collar Puffer Coat – LOVE/KEEP
I absolutely squealed when I saw this in my Stitch Fix. First of all…I live in Chicago, y’all and this winter is HARSH. I’ve been making do with a totally boring black puffer coat and was lamenting the lack of fashionable, warm plus size puffer coats out there!
Marc New York is a new brand for me, but I’ll definitely keep an eye out for more. This was a complete hit. The fit and the color were superb! There are fleece cuffs and the front pockets are lined with fleece for some extra warmth. The seaming on the coat make it more flattering than the standard puffer fit, so that was a huge bonus!
Kut From the Kloth Dayna Skinny Jean – LOVE/KEEP
At first, I was a little disappointed because I have tons of jeans and didn’t really need another pair. But when I tried these on, I began singing a different tune. I loved the slim cut on the skinny jean.
It was a great length for me, hitting below the ankle, and the wash was a perfect every-day blue. And I actually liked that these were not distressed/ripped. I have a ton of skinny jeans, but most of them have fallen into the deconstructed trend and it’s been too cold to wear them! I loved the quality of the denim and the stretch. I wore them around and snapped some pictures and decided that I had to keep them!
Collective Concepts Bayes Tie Neck Blouse – LIKE/KEEP
This blouse was such a lovely shade of blush pink! And I do love a good tie-neck blouse. The bonus on this top is the nice detail on the sleeves. This top isn’t exactly a statement piece, but I thought it would be a nice basic to add to my wardrobe. Again, this wasn’t the bold statement pieces that I preferred, but I decided to keep this as well.
Le Lis Lexie Velvet Skirt – LIKE/RETURN
The Le Lis velvet burnout skirt was one of those easy-to-wear pieces that everyone needs in their closet. The problem was that I have a ton of them and didn’t need to add another to my collection. The fit was spot-on. The colors were gorgeous jewel tones and the velvet burnout is on trend, but ultimately I decided to send it back.
Leota Jocelynn Jersey Dress – LIKE/RETURN
I like Leota and have a few of their dresses, so I was happy to see this in the box. This is a simple dress with a simple silhouette and it is extremely wearable. However, I have way too many of these dresses in my closet, and I didn’t feel like I needed another one. But – remember, I have an entire room full of dresses – which is not normal! If you like dresses and don’t have hundreds waiting for you at home, then this would be a fabulous dress to keep! The color alone makes me happy! In the end, this went back into the bag!
THE VERDICT: Good, with potential to be great
This was my very first box, and my stylist did provide me with pieces that I loved – especially that fabulous coat! With the feedback that I provided on this fix, my stylist will be better able to tailor my next box to my preferences, so I can’t wait to share that one with you too!
