When I signed up for Stitch Fix, I got the account during a promotion so I got my first three boxes for the price of one styling fee ($20). I had them come once a month. The first box was pretty good and I kept 3/5 items. The next two were not my style at all! It was like they weren’t leaving any of the (very detailed) notes on my profile. I actually went to the website and quit after the third box but they asked for one more chance. They said they’ll waive the $20 styling fee for my fourth box. I went for it since there’s nothing to lose (returning items is SUPER easy)! They set me up with a new stylist: Hayley. She’s an absolute angel. This latest box fits me to a T! I will definitely not be canceling my membership as long as she’s my stylist. Thank you to Stitch Fix and Hayley!
I have been receiving fixes for the past 4 months. I couldn’t be happier with the items I have been sent. It is very evident that my stylist not only looks at my profile but also my style board. All of the pieces I have received are high quality. Returning couldn’t be any easier. I had 2 pairs of pants in my last fix that I requested a different size in. They shipped the new ones to me before I even had a chance to return the others. And they provide a postage paid envelope to return your items in. You simply have to drop them off at the post office. If you are a busy working mother like myself who doesn’t have the time or want to go clothes shopping I highly recommend this service! And it is so exciting each month to see what has been sent to you, it’s like Christmas morning!

Okay I decided to try it out. Why not? The first box would be shipped free, and I could send back FREE as long as it was within the 3 day time frame. OMG! I loved EVERYTHING! All the tops, the jeans, the shoes. They nailed everything I said I wanted. I've been wanting to renew my style for a while and it's been hard to find what I've been wanting. My stylist seems to have read everything I had asked for, BESIDES the pricing I wanted to spend. I wanted each item to be between 15-20 dollars and I specified that. All the shirts were 40-50$. The jeans were 60 and the shoes were $89. The only time I spend that much on shoes is gyms shoes that are going to last me a few years that I wear daily, not dress shoes I will only wear on occasion. Regardless My hubby loved the things that were sent to me as well.
I wanted to buy at least the 3 shirts and take off the jeans and shoes but by the time I did that and they offered 25% off (like $80). I was only 40 less than what I would have paid for 3 shirts vs taking the whole box. So he bought the entire box. I set it up every 3 months, but would have done it more frequently if the price I could afford was taken into account. But I can't really complain because what was sent to me was worth the asking price. They were GOOD top brands and EXACTLY the items I desperately looked for in stores.
I’ve been using Stitch Fix for a year now. I love it! Jeans that fit are hard to find. Yet Hannah has hit it out of the park every time. I like that I don’t have to keep everything. I get 5 items and choose which to keep. This is great if you’re on a budget and can only afford one or two items. I’ve seen complaints about cost. You have the option to choose the price range you want and you can change it at any time. Several times I’ve kept everything. A couple times I’ve sent back two or three items. I like having the option to comment on and rate each item received. And it’s so easy to return items at no cost.
To get the most out of Stitch Fix it’s best to take advantage of the style shuffle on their site as well as creating a Pinterest board specifically for your stylist to view. I daily save all sorts of clothing I like to my board. You just add the url for your Pinterest to your account information. After being a member for over a year I find that my stylist, Hannah, include more personal notes in my orders. She’s referenced things on my Pinterest board more than once. It’s allowed us to discuss what didn’t work and why. And you can change stylists if you want. Hannah gets me. I don’t expect to keep everything. I hope there will be at least one new item I will like. But Hannah has outdone herself. If your expectation is to have a shipment of perfect items each time then you’ll be disappointed eventually.
The quality of clothing has been very good. I’ve tried other similar services and have cancelled as soon as I could. They claim to be better quality than Stitch Fix but they aren’t. You can order whenever you want. They don’t trick you into choosing auto ship. You can choose individual can opt for auto ship every two months, every other month or monthly. You can just order a one time order whenever you want. Stitch Fix is the real deal and make everything so easy. But if you like to have complete control over your shopping choices and don’t relish surprises, then you may not enjoy this service or anyone else’s.
I have never owned clothes fit my body and my style better. I live in NYC and finding anything decent in my size at any store I visit has already been bought - I'm a DD and a size 10-12. The stress of shopping, finding the time, commuting, and the likelihood that any buys will be out of necessity not love for the item. I have yet to not love anything I've received from Stitch Fix. And the styling has only gotten better- I've never felt sexier and felt more confident in my clothes. And THE JEANS that Stitch sends me <3. Finding well-fitting jeans in my size is a feat. Jeans I buy are always too loose or too tight in certain areas. Finding one good pair of jeans while shopping is a miracle but the 7 pairs I've received from stitch fix have always fit like a glove - form fitting but not too tight and very flattering.

The service, in theory is great. The customer service and follow through are terrible. I’ve been using Stitch Fix for several months. With that being said. I have had a problem with almost every shipment. Problems such as missing items not in the box, items not being credited for items returned.. Packages lost in shipping/return. Customer service contact is only through email where it has taken up to 3 days for a reply. I have used other services such as this...and the prices for styling fee may be higher but it is worth the difference.
Stitch Fix's stylist don't have young women in mind, even though you tell them your age and style choices. I kept receiving pieces my middle aged mother would wear. I only kept jeans and that's about it. It's not a bad service, but I would recommend it for older consumers.
I've been with Stitch Fix for over a year now and wasn't sure how I felt about some of the styles but tried on. The fit was great but they get in a rut with colors last December. For an outfit I asked for something nice for a corporate holiday party they sent me Jeans, a grey jacket made out of sweatshirt material and an eggplant purple blouse did not scream holiday party to me. The then this year asked for something nice for holiday party they again send me purple and grey. The dress they sent was purple and black and floral pattern. Was big and did not look good on me. But also in the box was an eggplant colored skirt. Not too bad. And also a grey denim jacket. Granted this fix was done by a sub and I was told mine was on vacation but she should looked at pieces I already had and not repeat the same colors over and over.
I was given a gift card to Stitch Fix and had to go through three receipts and returns of packages to find something I only kind of liked so I would stop having to deal with all the return mailing. If I had the option, I would have asked for the money back to go find my own clothing. Doing the little style games on the website and sending notes to my stylist wound up completely useless: I would always receive things that seemed like a bunch of surplus items that these brands weren't able to get off their hands through other means. The overall 'style' you will receive is that version of the cold, lifeless aesthetic of some techie who thinks that shopping for clothes is nothing but a frustration (surprise).
Overall, I vehemently dislike the idea of this company- a bunch of probably underappreciated (according to Glassdoor) tech employees who don't know the first thing about me, doing me a 'service' that I think should not exist as an option in the first place. The whole affair made me sad and angry. I hope this will not become the norm.
I tried this in the hopes of getting a much needed update on my wardrobe. I read the agreement which later turned out to be false. I made a purchase and did not get my styling fee refunded. I did ask and was told that I was not eligible. I guess they change terms when it suits them. Maybe I missed the teeny tiny writing that says StitchFix can do whatever, whenever. The only reason I made the purchase is because I was informed that any purchase in a fix will have the 20 styling fee deducted. WRONG. I did try to keep up on feedback and rating but the website is done very poorly. The language is limiting and not really set up in a way to learn more like that advertise.
Somehow this process that is supposed to be more convenient has turned into a chore. I had to send 3 separate emails to make sure that my account was closed. Again their website, which the company depends on, takes you in a loop when you want to cancel any part of their "service". I gave it two stars because I have to take some blame. I read reviews and I still chose to try. Also the first box arrived and I was so excited. I opened the box and tried on clothes that were laying on my midsection which I had addressed as a problem I would like to work around. People it's a crapshoot and stitch fix will get more than you will!
