Y’all, I used to think that being a stylist was a bit of, well, a “fake job.” This was about 5 years ago.
“You put outfits together? How hard is that?!”
Then, dear reader, I had to actually start styling LOTS of looks for this here blog. And let me tell you, it is A METRIC TON OF WORK. It takes organization, aesthetic sense, a deep understanding of people and emotional energy to handle client feelings about their body, etc etc.
Clothes bring up a lot of feelings!
Finding a Plus Size Stylist
So, I decided it was high time to put together a list of plus size stylists (humans) as well as companies that offer styling services or subscription boxes. We’re all trying to look good, and sometimes we need a bit of help!
Below, you’ll find a list of plus size personal stylists who offer online services, as well as companies that offer styling services through subscription boxes and remote stylists.
Shoutout to Kat Eves for sharing this thread on Twitter that helped me build out this list!
#1: Kat Eves of the Style Ethic
Y’all know that I’m a big fan of Kat Eves, as I published a whole blog post interview with this dynamo! Kat works at the intersection of ethical/sustainable fashion AND plus sizes, and dresses a number of celebrity clients for the red carpet and regular folks.
While Kat rejoices in all things extra and glittery (same!), she’s really good at understanding someone’s sense of style – and helping them express their unique sense of self!

#2: Miranda of The Plus Life Blog
OMGGGG, I love Miranda of The Plus Life Blog so much. Miranda is a southern belle who knows how to rock Draper James and Lane Bryant, and loves to dress plus size babes of all sizes and styles. Miranda is based in Kentucky, and she works with people all over the world!

Born and raised in LA, Angela Sauceda KNOWS plus size fashion. I met this fashion boss on Twitter, and I love her takes on fashion and dressing. Angela offers two styling service types, and she’ll help you build a wardrobe (and curate your current selection) to make dressing MUCH easier.

Plus Size Styling Subscription Boxes
Okaaaay! Here we go for the plus size subscription box listicle:
Option #1: Nuuly (Sizes XS-4X)
Y’all, I am so stoked about my Nuuly subscription, i canNOT even handle it!!!
Nuuly offers a bunch of higher end and designer brands, including fan favorites Antrhopologie, ModCloth, BI-nk, Maeve and Cynthia Rowley.
One of my goals in 2020 is to make content in a more sustainable manner. By signing up for Nuuly, I get more clothing to photograph – but less to organize in my closet! They ALSO ship your subscription “box” in a reusable container – cutting down on packaging waste!
(Did you know that the US is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at 1,609 pounds per person per year?! YIKES.)
YouTube Review Coming!!
Check Out Nuuly
Want to try Nuuly? Please use this link! You’ll get $20 off of your first box, and I will get $20 off of my next one. Win win, babe! <3
Option #2: Gwynnie Bee (Sizes 10-32)
I had a Gwynnie Bee subscription during college, as I was able to expand my wardrobe without having to store a lot of clothes! Genius!
Pricing: Membership ranges from around $50 USD per month (1 item) to $95 USD per month for 3 items. GwynnieBee is a LENDING site, so you can constantly update your wardrobe. You can choose to purchase piees and keep them forever if you like.
Option #3: Dia & Co (Sizes 14-32)
I’ve actually never tried Dia & Co, so I can’t speak to the service. They send you 5 pieces at a time to try. Unlike #1, you keep the pieces forever!
Pricing: There’s a $20 styling fee that is credited towards a purchase if you buy.
Option #4: Stitch Fix (Sizes 0-32)
I haven’t tried Sitch Fix, but DANG I have been tempted. You fill out a style quiz, and they send 5 pieces to try. You can specify your price point as well, so you avoid falling in love with something that is out of budget!
Pricing: Like DIa & Co, there’s a $20 styling fee that’s applied to your purchase.
