Happy Valentine’s Day, friends! It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through February – time flies….especially when you’re pregnant! 😉 Speaking of pregnancy, since I finally spilled the beans on the blog, I can share my latest Stitch Fix try-on and review with you – and I decided to give the maternity option a try this time! I learned during my first pregnancy that I didn’t need a ton of maternity clothes – I tried to stick to more flowy non-maternity styles that I could wear during and after pregnancy, too….I wore lots of maxi dresses when the weather warmed up and used a belly band around my regular jeans. With that said, it’s nice having a few maternity staples in the closet during pregnancy, so that’s why I was excited to give Stitch Fix Maternity a try. Keep reading for my Stitch Fix Maternity review!
Stitch Fix Maternity Review and Try-On Session: February

Daniel Rainn Maternity Pistacia Split Neck Blouse
I actually didn’t mind this style, as I have a few similar tops in different colors. The first thing I noticed about this was the fact that it was very see-through – I really don’t like having to wear camis under blouses so I knew this wasn’t going to work! Cute, but not functional.
First Kick Hadley Maternity Skinny Pant
These were cute pants that would have been great for an office, but for my SAHM life, they just didn’t work. They had the feel of dress pants, but fit like skinny jeans – they had an over-belly waistband and honestly, they were falling down because I don’t think I’m quite far enough along for full-panel maternity pants. I prefer to use the hair tie around the button trick for as long as possible!
Loveappella Maternity Charlote Ruched Top
I didn’t dislike this top, but I also didn’t love it. I think it would look better when I’m super pregnant, but right now, it just looks like there’s a ton of extra fabric in the waist area!
Gilli Trista Maternity Knit Dress
The dress was pretty cute and it was made of the softest material ever! However, it was way too big up top and there were giant gaps. I generally find that sizing up in non-maternity dresses work best for me for that reason!
Just USA Denim Jacket
A denim jacket over dresses has been a staple during both of my previous pregnancies, but since I already have one in my closet, I was really bummed when I saw I was sent another one. I know I can’t expect the Stitch Fix team to read my mind, but they do daily style quizzes on the app and I take them every single day and always say ‘No’ to denim jackets. I guess I was expecting them to use that feedback constructively when styling my fix, but not sure! I did ask that question when I filled out my post-Fix survey, so we’ll see what they say.
Overall February Stitch Fix Maternity Review
My first impression when I opened my Fix was that I liked the patterns and colors my stylist picked this time. I think I may have jumped the gun a bit with telling them I was pregnant because I just don’t feel like my belly is big enough to justify maternity clothes quite yet! For next time, I told them I’d prefer to see more flowy non-maternity styles that can be worn throughout and after pregnancy, too.

Give Stitch Fix a Try!
I first used Stitch Fix in 2015 after so many friends raved about it and as you can see, I’m still coming back to it years later! I love the element of surprise and having someone choose clothing items that you may not pick for yourself, but that you end up loving. Since I first signed up for Stitch Fix, they’ve added a Men’s and Kids’ option, so it really is a great option for the whole family!
You can create a Stitch Fix profile here and request your first box for you or a family member. There’s a $20 styling fee (sometimes this fee is waived, though!) and it goes toward anything that you keep from your box. There’s also a prepaid mailing envelope enclosed with your box to easily ship back what you decide you don’t want to keep. My general rule of thumb is to keep at least one thing (if I like it enough!) so I don’t lose that $20 styling fee!
