Stitch Fix… It’s something I have shared on social media before. Stitch Fix is a personalized clothing subscription service. I have been receiving the subscription since April this year, and I have to say – I am pretty impressed.
Once you decide to try Stitch Fix , you take a pretty in depth quiz about your style, sizing and preferences when it comes to what you want to receive in your subscription box, as well as the frequency. (Every 2-3 weeks, Every Month, Every Other Month, or Every 2 months) You can also schedule the delivery. The quiz takes around 20 minutes, and you can also attach your social media – such as your Pinterest Boards to help your “stylist,” figure out your personal preferences.
The stylist then curates 5 items for you, based off your preferences and you receive them in a box, with styling options and suggestions. The check out process is simple… Each “Fix,” costs $20 to curate- which is also works as a credit towards any items you may want to keep. For example, if you receive a pair of $68 jeans, your $20 styling fee, is subtracted and makes the jeans $48. On top of the $20 you receive, if you keep all 5 items from your fix, you get a 25% discount off the total price. For example, if the total of your 5 items in the fix comes to $220, you subtract your $20 styling fee =$200, and then take an additional %25 percent off – making your order total $150! On top of the 25% off, you can also receive $25 in referral credits for everyone you send to Stitch Fix, who signs up, and actually receives a “Fix.”

Overall – I have to say I have been pretty impressed. I have kept at least one item from nearly all my fixes. The sizing is great, since they go into such detail in how you like your clothing to fit. Style wise, I’ll also say I am pretty impressed. If you are honest with your stylist about what you do, and don’t like about your “fixes,” (and I mean brutally honest) they are typically on point with what is sent. Rarely have I received an absolute NO.
The main reason I wanted to share this is, as an athletic female, I know the struggle of finding fashion items which actually FIT. A majority of brands today, are vanity-sized to death, and simply not meant to fit appropriately on someone who has actual muscles. I have a smaller waist, muscular legs, and a big butt for my size! NOTHING FITS! (There is a reason my husband calls me “quadzilla”- and let me tell you, the struggle is REAL).
If you are the type of girl who shares my struggles. I highly suggest giving Stitch Fix a try. I will say, it took about 2 times for my “stylist,” to really get me… But if you update your Pinterest regularly, it definitely helps.
I have been dying to try Barbell Apparel’s Jeans, but it is really hard to justify the prices ($149+!). I have also debated trying Fabletics – an athletic wear subscription service – but have heard mixed reviews about the quality. I have also considered FabFitFun.
