Learning To Be Fearless

Describe your favorite part of participating on Stitch Fix’s Curvy Style Council.
“Working with this team was honestly one of the best projects I’ve ever worked on. Not only were my fellow Style Council members so sweet and informative, but the Stitch Fix team was a dream. I have never met a more dedicated team trying to make this work for the consumer.”

What product offerings from Stitch Fix have you seen that you’re most excited to try?
“Honestly, I don’t know if I could choose one product! Just getting a taste of what’s to come has me beyond thrilled! I’m excited to see bold, bright colors, different textures and form-fitting pieces to flaunt my curves!”

“I was excited to see so many on-trend pieces—things that I’ve often only seen available in straight sizes. I really appreciate Stitch Fix putting in that effort to create trendy, fashion forward pieces for the plus-size woman like myself.”

How do you think carrying plus sizes will change the overall shopping experience for women?

How do you think your readers/followers will react to the new size offering?
“I genuinely believe they will be THRILLED! I’ve chatted with my followers so many times about the struggles of online sizing and shopping. My followers have also mentioned that they struggle to find pieces that fit their body properly, or they can’t find items that feel unique or trendy. I can’t wait to tell them about this and make all their plus size fashion dreams come true!”

Curvy Girl Chic

Describe your favorite part of the Curvy Style Council.
“My favorite part about being a part of Stitch Fix’s Curvy Style Council has been getting to see and participate in the launch process firsthand! I’ve met the passionate people behind the launch, and have seen how much effort and thought goes into the style selections, fit and even the customer interface! It’s kind of mind-blowing.”

What product offerings from Stitch Fix have you seen that you’re most excited to try?
“I’m most excited about the denim options. Jeans can be really hard for me to find, but I’ve already tried on a few pairs at Stitch Fix—and I’m obsessed!”

What impressed you most about the Stitch Fix plus-size product?
“What impressed me the most was the fit. You can tell that items haven’t just been sized up from a size 2 sample! The arms are fitted where normally they’re too baggy or long, waists are nipped in to prevent jeans from sliding down and attention to even the way a hem on a shirt lies has been carefully considered.”

How do you think Stitch Fix will change the overall shopping experience for women?
“I think Stitch Fix will help so many women find on-trend, well-fitting pieces. One of the most common problems I’ve encountered personally is not being able to find a piece I’m obsessed with in my size.  Having a Stylist who knows the products available, and who knows your style preferences and size means that you can sit back while someone else does all the searching. I love that! ”

How do you think your readers/followers will react to the new size offering?
“I think my readers will be super excited about the launch. We all love to shop, but most of my readers work full-time or are students.  Sometimes you just don’t have the time to find the *perfect* pair of jeans. Stitch Fix helps take the guesswork out of style. I also love that you can choose how often you get a Fix—no monthly commitments—just a personal stylist on hand to help you with your wardrobe needs.

If the council has inspired you to elevate your looks,  take your style quiz, schedule a Fix and ask your stylist for plus size pieces to meet your style needs. Then relax as you wait for your five personalized pieces to arrive. Or, Check out Stitch Fix Freestyle™ to instantly buy items curated for your style and size.
