One small step for babes, one giant shimmy for babe-kind!
A year ago, we shined the spotlight on personal styling service Stitch Fix‘s foray into plus size styling. To refresh your memory, Stitch Fix is a convenient service where you can shop for items that fit your personal style in 4 easy steps: fill out a style profile, select your preferred delivery date, try on what your personal stylist picked out for you, purchase what you like and return the rest. Shipping is free both ways — and yes, that includes exchanges.
That move was a huge deal in and of itself, but it looks like the site has reached a level-up! We all know the womp-womp feeling of seeing high fashion items and knowing that our curves can’t shimmy into the luxurious fabric because, you know… it isn’t offered in our size.
“While it is very rewarding to be in the business of helping women and men look and feel their best, Stitch Fix’s offering felt incomplete without being able to serve a more comprehensive range of women’s sizes.
Our Plus team invested a lot of time and resources in order to bring the same great client experience to life and we’re thrilled to be able to offer a personalized styling service that is a broader reflection of American women today,” Katrina Lake, Founder and CEO of Stitch Fix
Well, we have interesting news- especially for our business professional plus size women looking to add a few more plus size wear to work items to her closet!
