Here is my order invoice. The merchandise total is $323 and the keep-all discount is $96.90, so factoring that in plus the $20 credit, this box would cost $206.10 to keep all five items. (Roughly $41.22 an item).
These are my preferences for the Fitness subscription.
Rebecca Michaels Turtleneck Pullover – Cost to Keep $98
I love the look of this top. (I love a big cowl neck!) The fabric pattern is beautiful too. It is made with a super soft fabric, and something I would buy if I saw it in a store – though probably not at the $98 price tag. I was also surprised to see that this top is a size large – it looks like this line runs a little small – this would definitely be a medium at Fabletics!
Rese Jacqueline Tank in Mermaid – Cost to Keep $68 (The Rese site has this tank on sale for $47)
This tank has a built in shelf bra (not lined), and my favorite part of the design is the support of the thick elastic straps. The black ruffle detail is an interesting subtle touch – you don’t see a lot of ruffles in active wear! My only issue with this top is that it is on sale from Rese Active Wear, so I don’t like that Wantable is charging you full price to keep it.
Cory Vines The Lane Racerback Bra – Cost to Keep $30
This sports bra is great. The price point is reasonable, it’s so comfortable and supportive, and I love that the entire bra is lined.
Colosseum Elite Flow Capri – Cost to Keep $69
I’ve tried Colosseum workout pants before thanks to Wantable Fitness, and I think they are great if you are looking for a light/medium compression pant with a very lightweight fabric. I also like the pocket detail on the back:
Mono B Basic Jacket – Cost to Keep $58
This hoodie zip up jacket is made with a very lightweight slinky material. I think it is the perfect weight for a hoodie in Spring. I don’t have anything like it in my workout collection, and I think the price point on this piece is fair.
Verdict: In past Wantable Fitness boxes, I had difficulty finding some of the items for sale online, and wondered if they were older stock. (Since this is a full price subscription, I want everything to be new stock). I think they’ve been improving upon that issue, but I was still disappointed to see the Rese tank top on sale from Rese’s site.
I think this subscription is for someone who wants the convenience of trying on items at home with a super easy returns process and would also value the opportunity to discover new workout clothing brands. It’s a specific demographic, but I think Wantable has been improving these boxes over the past few months to offer a better service. I like that my recent boxes have had a color coordinated feel to them, and I hope to see all items in future boxes available online at full retail prices – that makes it feel like a much better value if you decide to keep several items to get the 20-30% discount.
