Wantable Fitness is a fitness styling subscription service similar to Stitch Fix. You fill out an in-depth survey about your fitness clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you.

The fee for this service is $20 a month, and that fee goes toward whichever items you choose to keep. If you keep 3 or 4 items you also get a 20% discount, and if you keep all 5 items you get a 30% discount.

Wantable sent me this box for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

I’ve been enjoying exploring the many fitness apparel subscription services in hopes of expanding my yoga wardrobe. I do a bit of running and hiking here and there, too. As silly as it sounds, knowing that I have a cute (and functional) workout outfit to wear can sometimes be the push I need to get off the couch and into a class or out to the park.

The box comes with a booklet that contains a list of the pieces inside as well as a note from my stylist, Noelle. From what I’ve seen, it looks like my stylist changes from box to box, unlike other subscriptions where you stick with one person.

In the style quiz I took when signing up, I noted the types of things I like, love, and dislike wearing, as well as the price range I’d be most comfortable spending on different pieces (like tops, bottoms, and tertiary styles like jackets, etc.). To get a feeling for the prices and quality I should expect with this subscription, I picked the mid-range price bracket. It looks like the items I got in this box run from $42.00-$88.00. My last box only included items up to $66.00, and even that seemed like a lot for me. Still, I may be tempted to spend that much, if it’s on an item that I really love and would get a ton of use out of. I don’t count on it, but I’ll keep an open mind!

They also include a pre-paid shipping envelope to use with whatever you decide to return. Note that the return window is limited, so you’ll want to try on your pieces and make your picks as soon as you can after getting your package.

Okay, a few things to note:

1) I tried everything on shoeless since that’s usually how I work out (on my mat)!

2) Just for reference, I usually wear a 10 in jeans, a medium (like a 6 or an 8) in tops and t-shirts, and I’m a 36B. Oh, and I’m only 5′ 3″, so I like things short ‘n’ sweet.

Okay! Let’s talk clothes. Here’s my first “look” from the box.

Lukka Lux Spectrum Legging in Malacca Nude – Cost to keep: $68.00 (on sale for $39)

I’ve never encountered a pair of khaki-colored leggings before, and I’ll admit, when I took these out of the box, I thought I was going to really like them. But alas…

The beige fabric was super thin, which made every bump and crease of my body stand out in a really unflattering way. I like the panels of textured gray and smooth black fabric along the legs, but these leggings just didn’t give me that sleek, sporty feeling that I was expecting. The fit was comfortable, and they even have a handy pocket inside the front right side of the waistband, but this style just isn’t for me.

Shape Active Define Bra in Gray – Cost to keep: $50.00

Now this, I like. This bra is made from thick, knit fabric, rather than the poly-blend, Spandex-y material that so many athletic pieces are made of these days. That said, it was still smooth and comfy and featured removable cups and a fit that felt secure, covering, and snug, but not suffocating.

Part of that is thanks to the broad back of the bra. The V-shaped shoulder detail and wide straps stemming off of it make this bra feel like it’s really holding on. I do suspect this piece will show sweat marks a little more easily than others (though it does feature moisture-wicking fabric), but I don’t mind that too much—the sweat marks show I’m working hard!

Soybu Crosstown Cardigan in Black – Cost to keep: $42.00

This knit cardigan is comfy and all, but it’s also just a cardigan. It’s open, too, with no buttons nor enough fabric to hug it around in front of me. If I bring along a jacket or cardigan to a workout, it’s because I want to be able to snuggle into it, say during savasana, when my body is naturally cooling down. This piece fits just enough to look nice in my outfit, but it doesn’t have the function that I’m looking for. So this one is probably a pass.

Here’s my next “look” from the box. Unlike the last outfit, everything here is black and super sleek. Especially with this hooded jacket on, I felt like someone in a heist film—like I’m about to break into a museum and do gymnastic tricks through a hallway of crisscrossing security lasers. Not my usual workout of choice, but who knows!

Lukka Lux Tesler Quarter Zip Black Onyx – Cost to keep: $88.00

Let’s talk about this hooded jacket though. I honestly can’t decide if I like it or absolutely hate it, haha! It’s thin, stretchy, and smooth, with pockets, a short zipper, and a handy hood. So on one hand, it’d be an eye-catching piece to throw on after a class or before a brisk morning or evening run.

On the other hand, it’s got so many weird things going on that I don’t know if I dig it. These little nubs on the shoulders and hood are the number one culprit. They look like studs, but they’re actually puffed-out points in the fabric, as if someone poked a hot Allen wrench through the synthetic material, melting it into these odd little shapes. The idea is super cool and unlike anything I’ve ever seen before, but I’ll be honest… I don’t know that I really want to wear that around.

Shape Active Pirouhette Bra in Black – Cost to keep: $54.00

This bra is pretty awesome. It’s stretchy and snug on me, and it feels smooth and comfortable.

The back is really where it’s at, though. I love the overlapping straps and opaque and sheer layers here. It feels really pretty but sturdy, too. The dotted sheer panels are my favorite part—they’re a little bit romantic and flirty without looking out of place in an otherwise very sporty piece.

Onzie High Basic Capri in Black – Cost to keep: $59.00

I’ve seen and heard talk about Onzie being a popular brand for yogis and other fitness folk, but these leggings didn’t wow me. Maybe it’s because they’re just plain black leggings—they have a great wide waistband, which I like, but otherwise, they don’t feel as special as I would’ve expected from such a noted brand. I’ll also say that because these leggings come in half-and-half sizes (in other words, these are a M/L rather than a straight-up large, like I prefer), they felt just small enough that they might slide down if I was moving too quickly through a vinyasa. I did think it was funny that these “capri” leggings came all the way down to my ankles (ah, the joys of being short), if simply because I really prefer full-length leggings to capris. So in that area, all worked out!

Last look! The bra is the same, but I switched things up with a new pair of leggings.

MPG Sport Splicer Performance Leggings Space Dye Black – Cost to keep: $64.00

These leggings are probably my favorite item in the box. I love the mesh panels and the ankles, the soft, but stretchy, sturdy gray fabric, and the wide, layered waistband.

The laser-cut details on the thighs are pretty cool, too. These are the kind of leggings that make me feel like some kind of sporty superhero—they’re comfortable, they’re versatile, and they look awesome!

Verdict: I was pretty happy with this edition of Wantable. There were a few pieces that I could see walking away with (I’d need to nab at least 3 to earn the 20% off Wantable discount). I’m not sure all of the pieces had quality that matched their price (the beige leggings, for example, or the plain black Onzie leggings), and fit could’ve been a little better (other subscriptions, like Fabletics, really knock it out of the park in terms of fit on the first try, so my bar is set a little high). But overall, this was a fun way to discover pieces and brands I’d never have thought to look for before. I think that discovery aspect makes the $20.00 styling fee worth it, if you know you’re probably going to buy (in which case, the styling fee comes out of your purchase).

What do you think of the Wantable Fitness stylist subscription service?

  1. I agree you’re too hard on yourself. I have to say this is one of my favorite reviews that I have read lately – totally love your sense of humor (& I also genuinely appreciate the pictures of clothes on). I dislike the beige leggings but they don’t look bad on you. I can’t get with the stud look on the jacket. Love both bras and am debating giving this sub a chance.

  2. You’re too darn cute, Anna!!

  3. Great review! Very detailed. Like the grey legging and black bra the best on you. The grey bra is really cute too. The cardigan is strange as a workout choice. Wonder what workout they had in mind for that item.

  4. Great review! Thanks so much, Anna!
    I love the black jacket and the grey leggings. They are like what I was hoping for from the Demi Lovato collab. (The only time Fabletics let me down!)
    May have to get this sub!! 🙂

  5. I used to sell fitness apparel for a major retail brand and I still wear it about 80% of the time between home and work and errands. I have this sub on my wish list and I just love your reviews for it. I’ve been wanting to Branch out some into new brands and styles at some point so your super in-depth reviews and modeling are so helpful for when it comes time to decide which sub I want to try and which brands to look out for.

    • Aw, thank you so much, Katy! I’m so glad the reviews are helpful 🙂 Thanks for reading!

  6. I love the bras and the gray leggings.

    The jacket would’ve been cute without the weird fabric studs. Otherwise, it just looks like too much.

  7. That black jacket is ALL KINDS OF AWESOME! Love it! Actually, I loved everything you modeled. I think you’re being too hard on yourself (and on the leggings) in the first outfit. The colors are unusual and cool. All looks great.

    • Hehe, thank you, Bird! And I’m glad you liked the jacket! It’s definitely cool – I kind of wish I had a regular jacket or hoody (maybe with a full zipper) that included that “studded” detail. I could see wearing it to a concert or on a cool night out. Even if I don’t 100% love them, I’m so impressed by the pieces Wantable finds! Thanks so much for your sweet comment 🙂
