stitch fix : maternity edition

November 19, 2013

I had a lot of fun when I tried out Stitch Fix for the first time, so when I had a little credit built up (thank you to whoever signed up using my referral link!!) I decided to give it another go and see how they did with maternity clothes. I specified that I was quite pregnant and wanted maternity tops that could transition to non-maternity as well, if possible.

They did a great job! These pictures from a few weeks ago are pretty terrible, but you can get the general idea.

This first was billed as a mini-dress and I was on the fence about whether or not to keep it. I thought it was really cute, but worried that it would make a non-pregnant person LOOK pregnant. So I had a friend try it on and it still looked cute on her! The problem was that the material is a little thick and I definitely could only wear it with leggings or skinny jeans, so living in such a warm climate I don’t think I’d get enough wear out of it. In the end it wasn’t worth the price for me.

hi lo dress

This was a maxi dress that did not work AT ALL for me right now. I actually don’t think it was maternity because the waist was too low. It was also a wrap style that cut high in the front, low in the back. This could be cute, but with my large belly it revealed way too much leg and I wasn’t even comfortable getting a good picture of it because it was just so bad.

This open cardigan was great. Perfect fit, loved the cut. It’s super flattering and would wear well on anyone, I think.

sequins front

Here is another one that looked really bad on me in person but I didn’t get a good picture of. I have pretty wide shoulders so I don’t like tops that emphasize that area because I feel like a football player. Also, the cut underneath the arms was super baggy and it just didn’t work.

And we finish with another winner! I loved this light sweater. It’s totally my style, fit great, and I think that when I’m not pregnant it will still look good as a loose top.

So, yay for Stitch Fix again! Anyone else tried it recently?

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    You definitely made the right choices! I loved everything they sent for my maternity Fix, but I specifically asked for more office-y stuff and a lot of it wouldn’t have be able to transition to non-maternity.

    From Amanda:

    Love the cardigan! My first fix is supposed to come tomorrow. I’m a bit worried because everyone who uses Stitch Fix seems to be so lovely and classic in style, whereas I’m a bit…ya know. Blue hair, tattoos, combat boots. But I have faith!

    From Stephany:

    I tried Stitch Fix recently (and used your referral link! Yay!) but didn’t find anything worth the price they were asking for. I find it a little too pricey for me, but I may try them again in the future because I did love the whole process of it. It’s fun! :)
