My first full maternity Stitch Fix arrived last week! Stitch Fix (<- referral link!) is a personal styling service that is ideal for anyone who doesn’t have time to shop, is looking for specific items each season, or just loves clothing in general. UPDATE – For a short period of time, StitchFix is giving a $25 credit to new users! Use my link to snag this offer.
When you sign up, you take an in-depth survey about your clothing sizes, style, and pricing preferences. After reviewing this information, your personal stylist will send you 5 items to try. The fee for this service is $20, which includes free shipping and free returns. 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!)
As my baby bump grows bigger, the need for maternity pants is becoming desperate! I asked specifically for jeans and work pants this time around. You can follow StitchFix on Pinterest and re-pin any clothing they feature. It just might show up in your box!
When you receive your box, you have three days to decide what items you want to keep and what items you want to return. There is a “Checkout” option in your online account to let them know what you’re keeping (and paying for) and provide feedback on all the clothes. This is another great opportunity to tell your stylist about your likes/dislikes. Your credit card is only charged for the items you keep (minus the $20 styling fee!). A USPS bag (for the free shipping) is provided in the box to return the other items. I also discovered that USPS will pick up packages from your doorstep, so I didn’t even have to make a trip to the post office!
Check out the five items included in my September box:
Reginy Maternity Hi Lo Knit Dress ($58) – I appreciated receiving an option for my future baby shower, but I’m not big on the hi-lo style. Plus, I’d rather find something I’m willing to wear on multiple occasions over the next few months. RETURN
Alma Long Sleeve Maternity Knit Top ($44) – Although this was comfortable and cute, it’s just too plain for the $44 price tag. RETURN
Liverpool Mira Maternity Skinny Jean ($78) – These jeans fit well now, but I could foresee fit issues as my bump gets bigger. I’m planning to request these in the next size up to see how that feels. RETURN
Liverpool Reagan Maternity Skinny Pant ($78) – I absolutely loved the magenta color of these pants, but they were far too tight! The belly band barely fit and I’m only 23 weeks. I couldn’t imagine wearing these as my pregnancy progresses. RETURN
Liverpool Kennedy Skinny Pant ($78) – Ugh these were regular black pants! No maternity adjustments in sight. Definitely not something I’d be able to wear for a while, so I sent these back. RETURN
Even though I didn’t keep anything from this box, the issues were fit rather than style. I’m planning to request a size up in pants next time so that I can continue to wear them throughout the rest of my pregnancy!
