Stitch Fix Maternity- That’s A Thing That Exists! And I Love It!

When I finally opened the enormous plastic tub full of all my maternity clothes after Scott retrieved it from the attic, I turned to him and said, “Yeah… this isn’t going to work. None of this is going to work.” I guess I forgot how really awful 95% of it was.

To be fair, some of it wasn’t really awful almost 9 years ago when I first bought it. NINE. YEARS. AGO.

But some of it has always been awful, and I just… I don’t want to spend my last pregnancy (no SERIOUSLY THIS IS IT) in awful maternity clothes. So I saved the few staples that still functioned and looked good, and donated the rest.

Now I have a pretty trim selection, but I am enjoying filling it in with pieces I really love. I may have to wash those pieces every week, but dammit, I love them.

Part of my new maternity wardrobe includes 5 pieces I’ve received from 2 Stitch Fix boxes, and I’m going to share those below. Everything I’m wearing from SF is a size medium/8.  All SF links are affiliate.

My first maternity box wasn’t a home run, but it brought me two pieces that I was super happy to keep. The first, the black dress I’m wearing above, is by Loveappella and was $88. I wore this last week in Santa Fe (where this picture was taken- at the El Dorado hotel) for my Keynote speech at the Type A conference.

Here’s a different view:

I love the subtle ruching on the sides and that it’s lightly lined. It’s a substantial dress that is perfect for dressy occasions.

The second piece from my first box are these Kut From The Kloth distressed denim shorts for $68. The are an under belly panel, and crazy comfy with plenty of room to grow.

I’ve paired them with this amazzzzzing flowy black top by Daniel Rainn (the Ivanova Maternity Blouse for $68) from my 2nd box. It is so boho and soft, but also a great summer staple. Seriously obsessed. I’ll take this in 3 more colors, please.

Note: The thing about my first box is they sent me to a special “maternity” stylist. I’m sure she’s lovely at what she does. She did send me two pieces I instantly fell in love with. But my regular stylist? I’ve been with her for a year and a half. I love her. I never want her to leave me. She gets me.

So I got her back for my 2nd box, and I knew she was the one who picked everything before I even looked at the note!

So, all that is to say if you have a stylist you really super love, leave a note saying you don’t want to be passed off to the maternity team. I think/hope that will keep you with them.

Anyway, back to the clothes. Those shorts are actually denim jogging shorts from the juniors section at Target. Yes, they have an elastic waistband. I heart them. (And bought them a size up – L – so I have room to grow this summer.)

The top is Misimu Maternity Ravenscroft Split Neck Blouse for $48. I love how long it is! I specifically kept it because it’s plenty cool for the summer, but will also look adorable with a cardigan over it this fall.

Stitch Fix Maternity | Eight Sixty Eyelet Maternity Dress |

The final piece I kept from my second box is this navy blue Eight Sixty Gabre Eyelet Knit Maternity Dress for $88. Another super comfy piece that also looks professional when dressed up. I have quite a few work related trips coming up, so this will be in heavy rotation. Once it gets chilly, I can throw some leggings under it.

Now, if you’re balking at the prices, let me say a few things.

  1. There’s no way I could afford to fill out my whole maternity wardrobe at these price points. I have a lot of basics from Target, for sure.
  2. I enjoy Stitch Fix not because it’s a “bargain” but because I don’t have to shop for myself. Seriously, I am not a fan.
  3. I guarantee you I wouldn’t have picked most of these pieces for myself. That’s why I love having a stylist that pushes the envelope for me. Keep in mind that Stitch Fix is a styling service.  (More on why I’m ok with Sitch Fix’s prices here.)

I’ve been using Stitch Fix for over 2 years now. I rarely blog about it because my real life reality is that I’m rarely dressed with hair and makeup done at a time when I can get my husband to take pictures of me. Most of the time, when I look like this, we are running late to something and I’m lucky to make it there without someone spilling their snack/juice on me.

Over the last couple years, though, Stitch Fix has helped me find my style! I mean, I had no idea I even had one. Now, nearly every single piece in my (very scaled down and minimized) wardrobe is from them. I’m a huge fan, and I’m SO happy their maternity selection seems to be just as awesome.

  1. Katie Myers Fogarty on

    I’m so glad you got stuff you like — I tried one SF maternity box – it was a total DUD. Nothing fit, there were full belly panels when I specifically said I hated those… etc etc. I wanted to love it. I CRIED when I realized that I was kinda counting on it to make me feel somewhat pretty in a very un-pretty time. Anyway. I might try it again post-partum, as they were super great about listening to my constructive criticism.
