The Wilde Olive Blog: STITCH FIX for the growing bump?


STITCH FIX for the growing bump?

Monday, April 14, 2014

Since finding out I was expecting my second child back in early February, I've gotten two fixes. Before it was time for the first one to come, I updated my preferences and left my stylist a message regarding the pregnancy, hoping they could accommodate. After all with my last pregnancy, I wore so much that was not maternity during the summer months and even after. So, I felt pretty confident that, at least early on, I could get what I wanted from Stitch Fix and be able to wear them for most of the pregnancy. The first fix they sent, I kept a maxi skirt and a dolman top that I have since worn more than once. This time, I actually kept three items, but really all five would have probably worked with a little work. However, I only kept three.

  • Cardigans are like my uniform for work. I feel like I can throw on a cardi and a necklace with pretty much any top and make it work. I wasn't sure about this color on me, but decided to keep it because it's so soft and comfortable! Plus, it's good to mix it up every once in a while! 

  • This is my first scarf from Stitch Fix and I really see myself throwing it on with a cardigan or even a maxi to dress it up a little. I think it even works with my Target maternity tee. right? 

  • I decided not to keep the next top, I loved the color, but it just didn't make me feel great when I put it on. Comfortable for sure, but I one top in this style and just decided it wasn't for me. 

  • I did keep the tank below. I'm not sure about the fit right now. If I weren't pregnant, I'd probably say it was too big around and make me look pregnant, but I can see myself wearing it this summer with a pair of white shorts or maybe pairing it with a white sweater for work. I absolutely LOVE the colors and the style of the front. 

  • This maxi I loved and if it weren't for my ginormous growing chest, I probably would have kept it. I LOVE the color, but I would be really self conscience about the top even with something under. Plus it was a little too long. I also really hate this photo of me and of course all of these clothes would look WAY better for summer if I had a hint of a tan. I need to work on that!

Overall, I'm really happy with how they styled me for early pregnancy and all of the pieces I kept will fit throughout. I updated my profile with requests for more accommodating tops for the very large chest I will be sporting for possibly the next year or more. I plan to get at least one more fix to get me through the summer and then I may slow down for a while so I can buy more baby clothes of course!

  1. Love the stuff you got! I just did my first Stitch Fix this month and loved it!

  2. You are gorgeous! That mint maxi is stunning on you!! You've got to find a maxi in that color that fits you well. ;) The color, with your hair color is just so pretty. And, that cardigan, love it too. I think you made good choices as far as what to keep and what not to keep!

    1. Thank you Alyson! I did love the color. I will definitely be on the look out for one.

  3. i love that it works so well with your growing baby bump!

    1. Thank you! I think most of what I kept will work throughout the pregnancy!

  4. Did you update your sizes in your profile based on your pregnancy measurements? Or did you just leave a note for the stylist requesting looser fitting tops?

    1. I haven't updated any sizes but only because my size doesn't really change much during pregnancy, or it didn't the last time, we'll see what happens this time! I did change my bra size after my last fix because the two dresses they sent were not appropriate for someone with DDs. I asked specifically for mostly flowy/loose fitting tops, cardigans and dresses, since I wore I lot of that during my last pregnancy that were not maternity tops. I did specify no pants.
