Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + BOGO Offer – August 2017
Fabletics is a monthly fitness apparel subscription co-founded by Kate Hudson. You can shop Fabletics in two ways—you can shop the regular store, or you can sign up for their VIP membership. VIP memberships work like this:
- Take the Fabletics quiz, which will let the company know your size, style, and fitness needs.
- Each month, Fabletics will curate looks that match your preferences. According to the website, outfits start at $19.00 for new members. (I’m not sure if “new members” refers to just your first order, though.)
- Shop those looks at 40-50% off what you’d get just paying retail, or skip the month. You have to make your decision by the 5th of the month. If do neither, the $49.95 monthly membership fee will be saved to your account as a credit, which you can put towards other outfits later.
- As you shop, you’ll also earn points that can be applied to accessories and other cool fitness essentials.
Unlike a lot of other subscription boxes, you are not automatically sent a package each month. You have to go into your account and either decide to add items to your card or skip it. Subscriptions can be canceled at any time, though you do have to call into Fabletics customer service to do it.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Fabletics VIP Membership
The Cost: $49.95 a month. This price goes towards the cost of the outfits curated for you. The cost of outfits varies, but you’ll only be charged for what you choose to actually buy. If you want, you can choose to skip the month, and you won’t be charged. If you don’t spend your $49.95 nor choose to skip, Fabletics will charge you the $49.95 and just save it as store credit for you to use later.
LIMITED TIME DEAL: new VIP members can use this link to get your two pairs of leggings for $24!
The Products: High-quality, on-trend athletic clothing curated to fit your size, style, and needs. Think leggings, tops, shorts, and outerwear for yoga, running, and all kinds of other workouts. Fabletics is targeted towards women, primarily, but they do offer workout clothes for men, too!
Ships to: Free shipping to the contiguous United States when you spend $49.95 or more. $4.95 flat rate shipping if you spend less than that threshold. $9.00 to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and APO addresses. $5.95 VIP rate to Australia, or $9.95 otherwise.

Their invoice is a standard invoice with details on what was purchased along with 24-hour customer service info.
The back has return info that is handy if you need to do a return or exchange as well.
When I first started sifting through the many leggings and work out ensembles in the plus size section, I wanted to make sure to not get my standard go to black pieces. I was drawn immediately to this neon palm print they had. The colors are a bit different than what they look like on the site. I was expecting it to be more of a bright Kelly green instead of the aqua shade it actually is in person. No complaints on that, I love the color combo either way, but they may want to show it in a more true to light photo.
Clara Sports Bra, size 3x – VIP Price $24.95 (retail price $34.95)
I was a bit concerned about getting a sports bra without wires, but the combination Polyester/Elastane fabric comfortably holds me in rather well and lends some support. The sports bra has built-in cups that can be removed also. The racer back has a neat mesh detail on it that adds a nice design detail. The top lays a slight bit longer on me than the model. I am not shy at all about crop tops and showing off my mid-drift, but I like the length for functionality purposes more so than fashion.
Salar Capri, size 3x – VIP Price: $44.95 (retail price $64.95)
I was a bit on edge thinking that the pants would not fit me. They looked so tiny when I pulled them out of the shipping plastic that I checked the tag twice thinking I was mistakenly sent a smaller size. As soon as I got them on, though, I found that they were incredibly stretchy and fit my body like a glove. The material is very smoothing as well. Like most pants and skirts I get, I selected the high waist option for these capris. They hit me just right and I don’t feel like they need to be adjusted or that they will roll down and expose my backside. I am really excited to try these out at the gym!
Verdict: I absolutely love Fabletics! The quality and design of these pieces are undeniable, but the true cherry on top is getting a workout outfit for $24 (plus $4.95 shipping)! That introductory outfit price is such an incredible value! I like that there are a lot of similar styles in both straight and plus size too because nothing frustrates me more than seeing something I like in a smaller size and not being able to get it. Us big girls want to throw our money your way too, for goodness sakes! This is only my first Fabletics outfit, but I am tremendously pleased and cannot wait to get a second outfit.
