I let my stylist know I was expecting so she chose items that worked with my expanding belly. Stitch Fix doesn’t carry maternity clothes but they are good at choosing creative items to fit us pregnant gals. Everything they sent me would totally work for the first two trimesters. Some items would probably get a bit tight during the third but by that time it’ll be freezing outside so I’ll mainly be wearing animal pelts and snowshoes anyway. I was a bit underwhelmed with the styles this time around. They just didn’t look quite like “me.” I can’t put my finger on where they missed the mark but I’m leaving feedback on their page to hopefully I’ll get a better selection next time around.
Let’s jump right in…
This blue Pomelo blouse was cute. I liked the length and the details but I wasn’t wowed enough to keep it. I also wasn’t in a blousy mood when I tried this on, which hurt its chance of being a keeper. I’m sending it back. My friend Kristi got this same top and it looked great on her. I think she kept it (see it here).
I’m sure this tie-waist top from Daniel Rainn would look great on someone else. Me? Not so much. The tie hits me right at my widest point and at what will eventually be the middle of my bump. If the tie were higher (like my natural waist line or empire waist) it would have been better. Greg liked this top until I turned to the side and then he was like “Wait, no. That’s weird looking.” Haha. Sent back, per husband request.
I liked the neckline of this blouse from 41Hawthorn but it wrinkled so easily (I steamed it before taking this photo and it managed to get wrinkled in the 5 minutes I had it on). I also chose an orange top in my last fix (HERE) so I decided against a second one. The cut was comfy and I might have kept it if not for my recent orange purchase. Sent back.
Here’s the winner! These Margaret M straight leg jeans are great. I’ve never gotten pants in a Fix before, but I asked my stylist for white denim if possible. I did not have high hopes because they’re not maternity but they have this funky stretch panel at the top that is absolutely magical. 1) this makes them crazy comfortable even if you’re not pregnant and just want to eat a basket of chicken fingers 2) it gives my belly room to grow. I’m not sure how far into my second trimester I’ll be able to fit in these, but I probably won’t do a lot of white denim in the fall anyway. They’ll be great next spring when I’m in postpartum mode. Keeper!
