Wantable Plus Fitness Subscription Box Review – January 2018
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. Wantable Fitness has been around for years, but they just announced in December that they were expanding to include plus sizes, and I could not be more excited! I signed up right away!
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.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Wantable Plus Fitness January 2018 Review
This month only, subscribers can earn a $20 credit for keeping just three items! Cool!
When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. I would expect what I receive to be reflective of my tastes, and for these boxes to vary quite a bit from subscriber to subscriber. There is also a note from my stylist, Christina. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me.
This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right, it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $436. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $107.20. That’s a deep discount!
Essential Tech Short Sleeve Mesh Back Tee by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $40
I am amped for new workout clothes for a new year! This tee is a good example of why. I am really interested in trying out the new fabrics and cuts used in activewear! I like the idea of this cotton-blend top a lot, and I think the big open area in the back would help to keep me cool! I like it.
Optic Legging by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $52
I absolutely love these leggings! Have you ever seen tweed looking leggings for workouts in your life? I think they would be nice and warm, even with the super cool mesh panels. My only issue is that I seem to have ordered the wrong size in leggings. Both pairs I received this month are saggy and could not be trusted to stay on during a workout. I like a bit of compression in my leggings. I need to size down.
Odyssey Wrap by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $84
I have never seen such a stylish workout jacket! This is so flattering and cute! I love it! I love the thick knit fabric, and the draping in the front is so flattering! Plus the little zipper is such a nice detail. It feels really well made.
Bailey Tee by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $50
I love this tee, too! The color is beautiful. It has small mesh vents and is supposedly “sweat-wicking”. It was about 20 degrees outside when I took this picture, so I will have to trust them on that point. But I can’t wait to find out!
Boost Moto Legging by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $52
I love the moto detailing on these leggings! They are so cool looking, and they feel very well made. But again, I seem to have ordered the wrong size in leggings and need to size down.
Bolt Jacket by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $108
Do you know what I absolutely love in wintertime? Thumbholes! This jacket is just gorgeous. It’s super thick and sturdy, too. This spandex blend jacket also has a great cut and is fairly figure flattering, too.
Formation 3/4 Sleeve by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $50
As much as I love the back mesh detail, and I really do love it, this top is just too big for me. There is excess fabric everywhere. This cotton blend top looks so cute on the model in the picture, and it was the piece I was most excited about when I pulled it out of the box, but it just doesn’t fit right.
The Verdict: What a great first box from Wantable Fitness Edit! I wish I could keep everything, but there were definite sizing issues with the leggings and olive top. I especially loved the pink tee and black wrap jacket, though! I think the prices are fairly reasonable, and I love the way everything was carefully arranged for me into outfits. Here’s hoping my new workout clothes keep me motivated to work out this month! Happy New Year!

The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 20% discount.
