I have intermittently scheduled Stitch Fix shipments for over a year now. When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited to learn that they offered maternity clothes too. Stitch Fix is a personal styling service for women (and now men). There is a style and lifestyle questionnaire that discusses your personal budget, clothing preferences, etc. You can schedule fixes as often or as little as you wish. I typically do mine on an as needed basis. They send you 5 items in each box and if you purchase all 5 items, there is a 25% discount on your purchase. The cost of the fix is $20 and this is applied to your purchase if you keep any of your pieces. Try it here.
After I had bought my basics, I scheduled a Fix with several requests. I had a wedding to attend, will graduate residency in June and have a couple baby showers to attend. Therefore, I asked for at least one dress in hopes that I would be able to wear it to one or more of these events. I also requested white denim since I will be pregnant most of the summer. Finally, I asked that the other 3 pieces in the shipment be lower prices and not accessories. These are the pieces that I received.
1. Stitch Fix 3 pack maternity cami: $44 (sent back)
This pack included the basic colors of black, nude and white. They were stretchy, long and lightweight – perfect for pregnancy! However, with the thin strap, they would be hard to wear alone since your bra straps would show. I would’ve kept these but I had already purchased several tanks to wear under shirts or alone.
2. Q&A Greyson Tassel Top: $48 (sent back)
I really liked the pattern and colors on this top. It fit well at 20 weeks. My concern with this top is that it does not have much definition. I was afraid that as my bump got bigger, I would just look large in this top. Therefore, I sent it back.
3. Loveappella Naima Maternity Split Neck Knit Dress: $64 (sent back)
I liked the fit and style of this dress. The fabric was also really comfortable. My only issue with this dress was the split in the neck. It is too low to wear to work and I didn’t want to add another layer with a tank or cami since I will be pregnant (and therefore hot) most of the summer. Unfortunately, I had to send this one back as well.
4. Liverpool Elizabeth Super Skinny Jean: $88 (exchanged)
I have another pair of Liverpool jeans from Stitch Fix (pictured here) that I love so I was really excited when I opened the box and saw these. Initially, I exchanged these for a size up. I did not realize that these were not maternity pants and therefore could not wear them long. However, they will be perfect for after Teddy’s arrival so I kept them.
5. Scarlett Delos Knit Lasercut Maternity Dress: $78 (kept)
This dress made this entire shipment worth it and I am obsessed! It is hard to find a more formal maternity dress that doesn’t cost over $100. This dress is so comfortable and easy to accessorize. It is also not obviously a maternity dress so I may be able to wear it after Teddy arrives, though its too soon to tell. If you are pregnant and have events to attend – schedule a shipment and request this dress!
Overall, I was happy with this shipment. I am more particular about my maternity clothes that my non-maternity clothes. They have to be comfortable, somewhat form fitting and not cost a fortune – which can be hard to find. Have you tried Stitch Fix? Or a maternity shipment?
