Five Tips to Get Your Best Stitch Fix

This post contains affiliate links. I would love for you to use my link if you decide to sign up for Stitch Fix. I might even send you a puppy. Or my sincere thanks.

Y’all know I love me some Stitch Fix. I love getting five amazing pieces delivered to my door every month. I love that it doesn’t cost me anything to ship back pieces I don’t want to keep. I love that my $20 styling fee gets applied to whatever I decide to purchase.

One thing I’ve learned over the past six months is to make sure I’m helping out my stylist. The more information I give her to work with, the better my Fix. Last month’s Fix was the perfect example.

Here are Five Tips to Get Your Best Stitch Fix:

 Five Tips to Get Your Best Stitch Fix

1. Get out your tape measure: The more accurate your measurements, the better your chances of getting pieces that fit correctly. That means being truthful and using numbers to determine your size. Use the provided size charts and you can even leave your detailed sizing in your comments section.

2. Create a Stitch Fix Style Pinterest Board: Pin everything you love. Leave comments on your Pins as to why you like a particular piece, whether it’s the cut/color/style you love, or even things you don’t like about it.  Put the link to your Pinterest board in your style profile comments. And stay on top of the board! A board filled with sweaters, boots, and jeans isn’t going to help your stylist in June.

Follow Ashley’s board Stitch Fix and Style Ideas on Pinterest.

3. Check out Stitch Fix Reviews: Spend some time Googling Stitch Fix Reviews (you can check out all of my Stitch Fix reviews here) and Pin the outfits you love. If there’s a top you just have to have, Pin it and let your stylist know. They can’t always guarantee an item is in stock, but they’ll always try or they’ll find something similar.

4. Be demanding: I mean this in the best way possible. Tell your stylist what you DO want and what you DON’T want. For example, I don’t want jeans, so I let my stylist know. If you need vacation wear, tell them! If you hate certain fabrics or colors tell them! You don’t want to waste an item spot with something you know you’ll dislike, so be sure to be as clear as possible with your stylist on what you’re looking for.

5. Leave detailed feedback: After you receive a Fix, tell your stylist everything! Did you love the cut, but hate the color? Did the style not fit you correctly? Was the dress the perfect length for you? The more details, the better! Don’t just leave feedback on the items you didn’t keep. Let them know why you chose to keep an item, too! This will help your stylist determine items for your future fixes, so take a few extra minutes to fill out your feedback form with all of your thoughts.

So there you go, five easy ways to ensure you get the best Stitch Fixes possible. Do you have any tips to add? Leave a comment and let me know!

    This sounds amazing! I would love someone to help me with my style especially now that I am working out side my house.

      This is perfect to help you get a few key pieces for a work wardrobe. Even my “casual” wardrobe is so much better because of Stitch Fix. And I find myself shopping differently now, too. I have more confidence purchasing pieces on my own.

    I’ve heard nothing but great things about Stitch Fix. I really want to try it sometime, when we have the extra money.

      I think you’d love it! It’s the best discovery I’ve made.

    Okay, so your last post I read about Stich Fix I really wasn’t sure, but knowing how much control you really have in letting your stylist know what you like…I’m going to have to look into this more and see if I can’t make a bit of a clothing budget for me–because, heaven knows I need one!

      You really should! Just try it for one month. the most you’d lose is your $20 fee, but I bet anything you’d keep at least one piece. And besides, it costs more than $20 in sanity to deal with shopping at the mall! 😉

    Great idea about the Pinterest board. Will do it!

    • Reply ashley April 15, 2014 at 5:11 pm

      Yes! It will help a lot!

    Oh, good reminder to update our pinterest board with the season!! My stylist does an awesome job. I have even posted pics of myself in the outfits to my pinterest board so she can see what works and what doesn’t on me.

    • Reply ashley April 15, 2014 at 5:11 pm

      Yes! The photos help a lot. I started out by only taking photos of the clothes for reviews and realized that didn’t help anyone. I make sure to take the photos and I always pin my reviews to my board so my stylist can see.

    You are so on point with your tips. I am also a Stitch Fix customer and absolutely love the service. I was just cleaning up my Pinterest board yesterday since I know my stylist will be looking at it in the next week or so. I like the idea of adding the measurements. I should also add my picture on the Pinterest board. Thanks for sharing your ideas!!

      Thanks for reading! I need to add some more to my board. I could Pin summer clothes all day long!

    So…great ideas, but I did one of the items you recommend – providing direct feedback, and the stylists didn’t review it. I mentioned that I did not like rolled-tap sleeves, and was STILL sent 2 items with that option. Based on that, I cancelled the service (I mentioned it twice). They confirmed that they should not have sent the items, but too little too late.

      I had one off month where they sent me jeans after I had requested they not send them anymore. They were responsive and fixed the error for me. I’m sorry you had a bad experience. I think the company is growing so quickly now that some of the hiccups may be caused by growing pains.
