Happy Friday! This Stitch Fix review is a maternity one! Seriously right after I found out I was pregnant I received an email from Stitch Fix saying that they were going to start having maternity items. It was almost like they knew I was pregnant! Crazy!
I decided to wait a few months before getting my first (and only) maternity Stitch Fix. I had some trips in June that I was wanting a few nicer pieces for so I requested that it was delivered prior to then. I specifically asked for some maxi skirts and/or dresses and items that would travel well and look nice for my travels this summer. When this shipment arrived I was very happy with everything right out of the box. Read on to see what I kept and if I sent anything back!
Gilli Alina Mixed Geo Print Maxi Skirt-$58
Right away I loved the style and feel of the fabric of this skirt, but wasn’t sure about the pattern, but as soon as I tried it on I changed my mind! I loved it! I paired it with a navy tee, white sandals, and long necklace. The skirt is a little longer and fuller and has a lining under the top half. It is so comfortable and is a dream to pack. It’s been everywhere with me this summer-Maryland, Nashville, New Orleans, Florida, a bridal shower, etc. I love that it’s really long, but if I’m somewhere (say New Orleans) where I don’t want it to drag on the ground, then I just tie a knot in the front towards the bottom to pick it up. I have definitely gotten my monies worth out of this item which means it was a keeper!
Market & Spruce Alma Maternity Knit Top-$38
My first impressions of this top was that it was noting special. Next impression was that it was kind of wintry looking. I received this Stitch Fix in June and this top is a lightweight sweater material. I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to keep it. Now had I received it in September it may have been different, but I knew that even though it was lightweight I was probably not going to wear it much (if at all) this summer. The fit was great and I loved the ruching on the sides plus it was plenty long that it would probably have lasted me most of my (twin) pregnancy, but the color and fabric screamed fall and winter to me so I returned this item.
Eight Sixty Maternity Gabre Maternity Dress-$94
The first thing I thought when I saw this dress was that they sent me the same dress as last time! I had just received a short black Andrew Marc dress in my last shipment that I had kept. This one was more of a maternity style with some gathering in the front. It also was very comfortable and literally just slipped right not. There were no zippers or anything on it! It’s a perfect dress to wear to a nicer occasion or even something more casual, depending on what you pair with it, but as soon as I tried it on I realized that at 14 weeks pregnant it was already too short! It was cute and comfortable, but the length was only going to get shorter the bigger my prego belly got! So I had to send it back.
Papermoon Remmie Printed Maxi Skirt-$58
This skirt was the second maxi skirt in this shipment and again I wasn’t sure about the print. After trying it on with a black tee I decided the pattern wasn’t so crazy! This skirt is more straight down where the other one was definitely fuller. The length was great, the material was a knit so I knew that it would travel well, and it was super comfortable (this is obviously a must while being pregnant!). Both skirts have low wide waist bands so they sit under the belly versus going up and over. I like this too as long as it’s paired with a longer tee! I kept this skirt and have worn it numerous times this summer also!
Gilli Astra Sleeveless Maxi Dress-$74
The last item was this pretty coral dress. I LOVED the style, but I had just gotten a strapless maxi dress in this same color that had a white design on it. So right away I was thinking I probably wouldn’t keep it just because of the color. The other thing was that since it was a solid, lighter color I knew that it would probably show every lump and bump and I was right! If this dress would have been a dark color or had some kind of pattern I would definitely have kept it! Like I said I loved the style. Empire waists are a must with maternity dresses and the length was nice and long. I also liked that it was sleeveless and wouldn’t require a strapless bra like my other one that I had just bought. This dress could very easily have been dressed up or down and worn for many occasions but I sent it back.
Overall I’m very glad I tried a maternity Stitch Fix! All the pieces were great and in different circumstances I would have kept all five pieces, but I ended up only keeping the two maxi skirts this time around and have worn them a lot this summer! Since I am now 28 weeks along (the pictures above were taken back in June!) and have about nine weeks left before the twins arrive I won’t be getting any more maternity shipments, but I highly recommend trying it if you are pregnant now! They have great pieces and I was just as impressed with their maternity selection as I was with my regular shipments. I’m not sure when I’ll request my next Stitch Fix. I’ll probably wait until after the babies arrive and then treat myself to something later this year or maybe in January for my birthday! I know getting out and going shopping for myself will probably be none existent when I have a 5-year-old, 2-year-old, and newborn twins in tow, so Stitch Fix will be a great way to go! Can’t wait!
