These stitch fix reviews might help you think about trying your own outfits.
I wanted to try stitch fix — but did it work for plus size women?
I had gotten in a rut.
A rut of navy stripes and skinny jeans.
I was overweight and tired of how I looked.
So, I tried Stitch Fix.
But, I was worried. I’m not a size 2 girl with no curves. I’m a size 18 (on a good day) and I have some modesty concerns to heap on top of that. But, I figured what the heck — I’ll give it a try. 🙂 Stitch fix was basically my plus size online stylist.
Plus size online stylist
I just needed a change, and I hope my stylist would provide that….
Also, Stitch Fix now dresses women (and men) of ALL types. From size 0 to 24w — and lucky me — I fit in that frame. Ok, so I’m ready to share it with you guys!
Do NOT miss my tips for using a style subscription service. I think you do have to get into a groove and this post on Plus Size Clothing Box Subscription Reviews gives some awesome and helpful tips (no matter your size).

I am posting these reviews in reverse-chronological order…. with the newest reviews at the top — just so you know. 🙂
**You may hear in my videos that Stitch Fix will waive your styling fee — and I’m sad to say I don’t think that’s true right now — but you CAN apply the styling fee to whatever is in your box, and I bet you’ll love at least one thing — so it ends up BEING free that way… just FYI**

2018 Stitch Fix Review
March 2018 Stitch Fix
Thoughts on the Items
1- Floral Shirt $48
Blech. Blech. Blech. Just not in love with the color, or how flowy it was. Certainly didn’t do anything to help with my figure. All washed out. not a fan.
Not a keeper.
2- Green Kimono Jacket $38
Initially I liked this one. I thought the green was OK, but later it seemed a little dark. Plus, the fabric is see-through and I wasn’t sure how it would work with a T-shirt (didn’t love it with the white one). In the words of my friend “it doesn’t do you any favors”
Decided to send it back, because I wasn’t sure I’d get much wear out of it — and it was a little dark for what I already own.
3- Tehari Pink Scalloped Flats $79
SO cute, right? I think my Instagram poll for these were 100% FOR them.
BUUUUT… 80 bucks for shoes? Not to mention sued scalloped flat shoes.
The fit was OK — a bit slidy on my heel.
So I hem’d and haw’d about them. If I was tempted to get the whole box, I’d TOTALLY get them.
But then, the yellow shirt killed that.
SO, I returned them, sadly. I just didn’t think I would get $80 worth of wear out of them, and they might not be comfortable enough for all day events.
5- Yellow Cardigan $38
I liked this one. The color was fun and bright, and I am always looking for something to wear over an outfit as I end up cold in the frigid a/c of Phoenix — so I thought this would be a fun option.
It’s nice and soft.
And, because I already had my $20 styling fee — I wanted to be sure to keep something. SO, I kept this. I like it.
6- White Pants (Warp + Weft) $88
These, were great.
But, they are SO white. I mean, totally white.
Fit was good, can’t see through them. I really like the brand.
BUUUUT, 80 bucks for WHITE pants.
White pants guys. White scares me. I know my kids are older, but I am still JUST as clumsy. So — back they went.
I am ready to spend good money on some good jeans, but they need to be REALLY wearable — several times/week, and these just weren’t that. Plus, I’d be afraid to wear them to business events as I would worried about staining them.
So, back they went.
I think this fix was headed in the right direction, but I still wasn’t thrilled with it.
BUT, I am liking trying new things. I think it is good for me. 🙂
In other news, I went to Nordstrom’s Last Chance (an outlet store here in Phoenix) the day after I returned the white pants, and picked up some that were only $3 on clearance — so I was glad that I returned those other ones.
I like white pants. I’d like to try them out — but much more excited to do so at $3 than at $80.
Thoughts on the items:
1- Striped Sweater $50
MY FIRST KEEPER from Stitch Fix. Of course, the caveat is that I own a TON of Navy-striped shirts and I’m really doing Stitch Fix to stop it with the Navy stripes BUT, I don’t have anything winter-related that has stripes.
It’s super soft… It has cute golden buttons (behind my arms) — I’m in love. Great winter top (not super warm, so extra great for AZ).
2. Blue Shirt $55
Ok, guys — this looks like something my mom would buy from Chiccos… am I right?
BUT, when I put it on it was SO soft and light, it was like I was naked (a big plus here in AZ)…
But, fashion won out and it went back.
Also, the buttons were really clunky.
I did like the back part — it’s one redeeming factor.
3. Pink crop pant $100
I liked these. I thought they were a little tight. BUT, when I bent over they stayed UP!
BUT, $100 for a pair of pants that I wouldn’t be able to wear with like 50% of my shirts doesn’t really work with my idea of a capsule wardrobe….
So, I sent them back.
And yes — I’m not a fan of my front view… so no need to comment on it. Mm… k?
4. Dress $60
Ok, I am a TOTAL idiot — this dress (as I looked at it online) is on backwards….
The way it is here, I thought it was a nursing dress…..
But it’s not.
It DOES, however, have have an opening in my back — which doesn’t work with my modesty standards…. so, back it went.
I also worried it was a little short. Dresses have a tendancy to creep up on me….
5. Shoes $70
These were cute, and like 3 sizes too big. Also, 70 bucks for a pair of sued flats….
I just couldn’t.
BUT, it made me consider shoes like that, which I haven’t before.
2017 Stitch Fix Oufits Size 18
Early December 2017
Pictures of the items:
Green Top: Just looked frumpy, although it was super soft — and we all know I love stripes. 🙂
Flower Top: All Gauze-y — entirely see through which means I have to layer and I live in Arizona and I am morally opposed to layering in Arizona. 🙂 The sleeves were also way too flowy — not a fan.
Jeans: Love, love, loved them — but the ankle was SUPER tight and I knew it would drive me insane. They were KUT brand — and $88 — which is a lot of for a pair of jeans for me. Hopefully I can get ones that fit better on the calf…
Jacket: I really liked it, especially the tie-backs. However, I couldnt’ move my arms well, it was a bit too structured and tight. I didn’t end up loving it enough to pay over $80.
So, I ended up sending it all back.
Total fail. I have high hopes for the next box!
The good news is that it all fit — so that is certainly a step in the right direction! 🙂
I have heard that it often takes a box or two for your stylist to really “get” you. I hope that’s true. On to box #2….
