A Fun Way to Shop for Maternity Clothes: Stitch Fix!

on June 6, 2016 by Jami Balmet 8 comments

Over the past 6 months, I have increasingly fallen in love with the clothing website called Stitch Fix. I feel like I finally cracked the secrets to getting the most out of the service and most of my favorite clothing has now come from Stitch Fix.

I found out last year at the very end of my pregnancy that Stitch Fix does maternity clothing!! I’ve had a lot of questions about Stitch Fix’s maternity clothing because there seems to be hardly any examples out there of it.

My sister is currently 25 weeks pregnant so I talked her into trying a maternity box (okay, she was actually really eager to try it out)! I walked her through how to fill out her style profile, how to create a Pinterest board to get things she loves, and other fun Stitch Fix secrets.

So that’s what I’m sharing with you today: Her maternity Stitch Fix box (and why I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m pregnant)!

My new favorite place to buy maternity clothes

New to Stitch Fix? If you’re wondering what Stitch Fix is, it’s essentially a clothing stylist company. You fill out your profile, sizes, style preferences, etc. and pay a $20 styling fee. Then your stylist sends you a box of five items. You get to try them on (with all your own clothing and accessories which is so fun) and decide what you want to keep and what you want to send back.

Whatever you don’t want, you mail back to them in a free bag and only pay for what you want. If you don’t keep any of the five items (which has never happened to me), then you still pay the $20 to cover the styling fees and shipping both ways. BUT if you keep at least one item, the $20 goes towards the price of that item. Pretty awesome!

A Maternity Stitch Fix Box:

Meet my sister Sienna! She’s currently about 25 weeks pregnant with a baby boy and we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the first cousin!! Isn’t she beautiful? Here’s a peek inside her box!

Unfortunately, by the time I got around to writing this review, we had lost the pricing sheet and we don’t remember the exact pricing of all the items. Everything was between $30 (for the three camis) and $80 (for the blue dress). I was worried that the maternity prices might run higher than average fixes, but the prices were consistent with all my other fixes. (You can see all my past Stitch Fix boxes here).

Healdsburg Short Sleeve Boatneck Maternity Knit Top

Super soft, comfy top that was very flattering.

Melroy Lace Detail Maternity Knit Top

I personally loved this top with the cute lace details. But here in California in the Summer, it tops the 100’s. And since Sienna is due the beginning of September, this just wasn’t a practical top for Summer here. It was cute and comfy though!

3-Pack Maternity Cami Set

This was a surprise! I’ve never seen three items come as one before. It was about $30 for all three cami’s. $10 each for a high quality cami isn’t bad at all! Sienna decided to send them back because she doesn’t need any cami’s – but if this had been my maternity box, I think I would have kept them!

Macey Printed Maxi Skirt

This was Sienna’s favorite! It has such a pretty design and was incredibly soft and comfortable. I have a feeling this will be one of her staples throughout this long, hot summer!

Gabre Eyelet Knit Maternity Dress

Here is Sienna and her adorable husband Brandon – all ready to welcome their new baby boy. Unfortunately, they’ve still got a few months to wait πŸ˜‰

Oh, but the point is: her final item was this beyond adorable blue eyelet dress. It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the dress was actually a bit too big on Sienna. It just didn’t fit her waist right. She is so petite that it just didn’t work. Bummer because I would have kept it in a heart beat!

The Final Verdict?

We were both very impressed with the Stitch Fix maternity box!

I was impressed because I had a feeling that the maternity items would cost a lot more than regular ones and I’m happy to report that I was wrong! The maternity clothes were all really high quality and had a nice variety.

Sienna was impressed because this was her first Stitch Fix box, and I have to say: I think she’s officially hooked! If you’ve never done a Stitch Fix box before, there’s something very exciting about filling out your profile, creating a Pinterest board with all your favorite styles, and waiting for your box of unknown surprises to show up.

On my next pregnancy, I will definitely be doing a Stitch Fix maternity box!

Sienna also loved the fun style card that comes with the boxes. They take all the pieces they gave you and style them into two different outfits! As someone who is fashionably challenged, I love this! It always gives me some really fun ideas.

Stitch Fix Maternity - Is it Worth it

  1. I was a huge fan of your blog when I first started reading it. I loved all the money and time saving tips. Recently I have had to stop reading your posts because I am seriously disappointed in the way you’ve been advertising for expensive clothing. As a stay at home mom, like many of your readers, buying cloning for myself is last on the list of many things to purchase for my family. My jaw literally dropped when I read the amount of money that one stitch fix box cost per month. I honestly could never fathom spending that much money on clothes each month for myself when I have been called as a Christian to help the poor. I just wonder what your conversation was like with God before agreeing to take funds from this company for advertising for them.

    • Hi Kaitlin, so sorry you are disappointed. I think we have a few misunderstandings going on: First, I don’t take any funds from the company for advertising for them. I don’t get paid to talk about Stitch Fix. I do share my referral code, like anyone else is free to do and it has helped pay for a few pieces of clothing. I have only done 5 or 6 boxes ever and of those boxes, I’ve not kept all of the clothing. Plus, I’ve ordered a box maybe once per season. I agree, $300 a month, every single month would be a ton of money and far outside my price range. However, for most who utilize Stitch Fix, they will order a box maybe once a year and keep one or two high quality items. It can work quite nicely for the stay at home mom who can’t get out to shop but wants a few pieces of high quality clothes that will last. Paying $50 for a really high quality pair of jeans might be really worth it to some moms because it’s going to last so much longer and hold up with all the wear and tear.

      But of course, like I’ve said in each and every Stitch Fix post, it’s certainly not in everyone’s price ranges. If it doesn’t fit in your budget at all, feel free to move on πŸ™‚ I decided to try out a Stitch Fix box because I had SO many readers asking me about it, if I’ve tried it out, how I liked it, etc. That’s what motivated me to try it out. My first box I got, I kept one item I liked that was $40. That was a long time ago and that item is still holding up really well. That doesn’t seem unreasonable to me.

      I’ve been pairing down a lot lately in my closet and trying to get to more of a “capsule” wardrobe with some staple pieces of clothing that are high quality and stand up to the test of time! It’s actually really nice to pair down and simplify things, especially clothes!

      So sorry you’ve stopped reading! I hope you have some blogs that are a better fit for you πŸ™‚

  2. I love that first blue top! That is one of the cutest maternity tops I have seen! I love how this stuff is outside the norm for maternity clothing, at least in my mind. It’s all VERY cute!

  3. Your sister is so gorgeous! Congratulations to Sienna and Brandon, and of course congrats to you Jami on being about to become an Aunty! How exciting! I love all the items in the box, especially the dress! Wow! Almost makes me want to be pregnant, just so I can wear that dress! (kidding)…I do wish it came in regular sizes though – it is beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  4. How gorgeous! I didn’t realise you were becoming an Aunty Jami that’s so special. Sienna is only about a week and a half ahead of me. It’ll be here before you know it! I wish we had something like Stitch Fix over here – that maxi skirt is so pretty.
