Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $346 and the keep-all discount is $103.80, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $242.20 to keep all five items. (Roughly $48.44 an item).
Here are my preferences for the Fitness subscription.
Pink Lotus Power Up Jacket in Grey – Cost to keep $136
I can’t find this jacket on the Pink Lotus site (or anywhere online), so I’m not sure if that means it is older or newer stock, but I absolutely love it! In general I like black, streamlined workout clothing, but I still want the piece to have some design to them, so this is a perfect piece for me. The grey insert pieces are very flattering too.
Pink Lotus Courage Bamboo Leggings – Cost to keep $76
These are another item that I can’t find online. I really like them though. They aren’t a high compression legging, but instead more of a legging/jogger hybrid. They are really soft and comfortable, but don’t add extra bulk like some jogger pants can. I think it is time for me to start shopping from Pink Lotus!
Rebecca Michaels Sports Bra in Rose Dot – Cost to Keep $56
I can’t find this bra for sale online, but I can’t find any Rebecca Michaels items online either. I like the material of this sports bra – it is super soft and comfortable. I would say it is best for low-impact workouts. This isn’t a print I would pick out as a workout top, but as a sports bra that goes under a top it’s fun. I definitely would not pay $56 for it though.
Climawear Aurora Space Dye Tank – Cost to keep $39
This tank has a lot of stretch, and a built-in-bra with removable cups. It’s comfortable, and I think a fair price too.
Climawear Caged Running Tee in Coral – Cost to Keep $39
This material of this top is really thin (not see-through), but just great for keeping things light in high-intensity workouts. I’m impressed with the quality of both of these Climawear tops for the price.
Verdict: I liked this Wantable Fitness Edit a lot more than my February box. The styles are much more in line with my personal tastes. All the prices this month seem relatively reasonable to me, with the exception of the sports bra. I’m also not sure if the Pink Lotus items are old stock, but if they are I wouldn’t want to pay full-retail for them.
I think Wantable Fitness is a good box if you are looking to discover new workout clothing brands and want to be able to try them on at home. (Anything you don’t like gets sent back with a free return shipping label). I also like that they offer you a discount if you keep even just three or four of the items (The 25% Stitch Fix discount only applies if you keep all five items). One thing I like about Stitch Fix and Wantable Fitness is that they send me items I wouldn’t buy if I saw them online, but after trying them on some are winners. It’s a good discovery tool that can help push me out of my comfort zone.
So, if you’re looking for that kind of service, this is a good option. If you’re looking to pick out the clothing, Fabletics is a great option too, and their price points are lower.
