Stitch Fix #2: Maternity

I had great results with my first Stitch Fix, and really wanted to try another round of maternity items. My previous fix, I ended up buying all the items and I still wear most of them frequently. This time, I asked for more nursing-friendly pieces, since we don't have too far to go till the due date (Sept. 24th) and I want some items I can wear afterward.

I ended up getting some things that may have worked later on, but weren't working for me and my bump.

Note: I forgot to keep the paper that came with my items and Stitch Fix doesn't have an option for viewing your order history, so I can't tell you the actual names or prices of the items! I'd like to blame the pregnancy brain, but honestly I figured there would be a way to go back and check. They were all between $50 - $100 each.

2nd Note: I had to hold my camera at that height.. believe me. I was getting some extreme Star Trek-style lens flares when I held it at the normal height that day.

#1 Set of Cami's - Returned

These were soft and long, but I didn't really need any cami's so I sent them back.

#2 - Blue Maxi Dress - Returned
This was really pretty, but I didn't think it was that flattering with the bump. Also, a great nursing dress but the over $80 price tag was a bit high for me.

#3 - Patterned Nursing Dress - Returned
This would also be great for nursing, but didn't fit me well right now, and I wanted something I could wear right away.

#4 - Maxi Skirt - Returned
I'm not a big fan of maxi skirts, and this one wasn't a good length or fit for the bump.

#5 - Wrap Dress - Returned
I'll be honest and say I don't know how to tie a wrap dress. I felt like it could fly open with it only being held together by a piece of string.

Overall, I felt like none of the pieces were very flattering with a bump, although they may fit well later on.

The only one I would have possibly kept was the blue maxi dress, but it would have had to fit perfect for the price.

I didn't keep any items this time but I will possibly order another Stitch Fix in the future. If you sign up and use my referral link, I get extra credit towards shopping, totally up to you.

Have you tried Stitch Fix? How's your luck been?

  1. Such a bummer none of those worked out after you had such great luck with your previous Stitch Fix!

  2. I think they're all adorable on you but I get it - sometimes the price doesn't justify the amount of times you'll wear a dress or the comfort.
    I love wrap dresses too but NEVER feel confident wearing them. Always waiting for them to fall right open.

  3. I liked most of the dresses on you, but I am always self conscious about the bump too. I have the same qualm with wrap dresses and I hate maxi skirts on me as well. I feel like every time I see a Stitch Fix review, the prices turn me away.

  4. I always love seeing what people get in these posts. Such a bummer that you weren't loving anything you got this time around- the maxi dress is so pretty, but definitely on the pricier side for something you weren't totally loving.

  5. Aw, that's too bad. I actually really liked the blue maxi dress on you, but I guess it's hard to shop for after the bump while you still have it. :P And from what I've seen of other people's posts, Stitch Fix does seem to be a little bit expensive (part of the reason I haven't tried it!). Better luck next time!

  6. I think that first blue dress is gorgeous on you, but if the price doesn't work then it's definitely not worth it! Sorry this round was a bust!

  8. I really love the blue maxi dress and I think it's looks cute! But that is a little pricy. Did you ask them for so many dresses? I don't wear dresses that often anymore since being on the floor so much with the kids. I did a maternity Stich-Fix and got one nice maternity t-shirt but overall I haven't had much success with them. I also tried a nursing clothes subscription box called Mama's Milk Box but ended up sending everything back and swore off subscription clothing boxes forevermore after that.

    1. Sorry this is a super late response! Your name came up as a no-reply blogger. The prices are seriously crazy. I want it to really amaze me if it's going to be that high!

  10. bummer about the fix. I like the maxi dress, but it is expensive! Holy cow. I think with most wrap dresses there is a tiny slot in one side, where you feed the little string through, and it comes back out to tie on the outside, so you have a much larger space where nothing will get shown if it flies over! hehe XO - Alexandra
