Check out my review of what I got in the Wantable Women's Fitness Box for June 2017!

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).

Check out my review of what I got in the Wantable Women's Fitness Box for June 2017!

I’ve been enjoying exploring the many fitness apparel subscription services out there. I’m an avid yogi who’s been known to go for a run every so often. Plus, I spend most of my weekends (and much of my weeks) in leggings and sneakers. After checking out the variety of colors, patterns, and edgy styles Wantable advertised on its website, I was pretty interested in giving the service a shot.

The box comes with a booklet that contains a list of the pieces inside as well as a note from my stylist, Kiley. 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 $41.00-$66.00. $66.00 is a lot for me to spend on one single piece, but I’m willing to give the items a try-on before I decide to send anything back. If it’s worth $66.00, either because of the quality or the cool design, I might just hang onto it.

They also include a pre-paid shipping envelope to use with whatever you decide to return.

Okay, a few things to note:

1) The shoes are my own. (Hence, they don’t match as nicely as I’d like.)

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.

3) Pardon the weirdness of my hair as I grow out my pixie cut! (One minute, it looks fine, the next minute, I look like the secret fifth member of the Monkees—any short-haired ladies out there feel me right now?)

Wear It to Heart 3.5″ Waistband Capris Venom White Black Coral, Size Large – Retail Value, $72.00, Cost to Keep $66.00

I liked the pattern of these leggings—there’s a subtle haze of coral pink that appears amidst the marble-like pattern. You can kind of see it by my knees in this picture. On the whole, though, these leggings are still pretty neutral, which is right up my alley. I like that I can pair them with lots of different things.

I can’t say that I liked the capri length of these leggings, though. I don’t know exactly why… Maybe it’s just one of those things, like people who are vehemently against shorts. It’s not that I think I look bad in them, either. I just really don’t like capris. I’ll have to hop back into my account and update my preferences with that info.

For me, the capri part was less of an issue compared to the fact that these felt just a tiny bit too small and a tiny bit like they were sliding down. I’ve got a bigger upper leg and booty zone (I can hold chair pose like nobody’s business), and this pair of leggings felt a little ill-equipped to deal with it. So, fellow curvy people, know that these might not be the most secure-feeling leggings to work out in. If you’re looking to just wear them around the house or while doing errands, you’ll probably be fine!

Zobha Shay Pullover Heather Slate/Black, Size M – Retail Value $65.00, Cost to Keep $59.00

Wantable says this is the “Shay” pullover, but according to the Zobha site, it’s actually called the “Laila” pullover. Not a huge deal—I just wanted to clarify for anyone looking to pick this up for themselves!

I really liked this out of the box, though it’s not the most flattering piece I’ve tried on. I love that it has pockets and a flopsy cowl neck to keep me cozy. I’m sad that the neck is just a neck, rather than a hood. But the material is really soft, and the colors are right up my alley.

The back has a cool sheer detail, too. I felt way cool wearing this look around! I think it’s just a bit boxy for my style.

Wear It to Heart Multi-Strap Mesh Back Bra Venom White Black Coral, Size M – Retail Value $45.00, Cost to Keep $41.00

This bra matches the leggings before, but as you can tell, it’s not my fave. It’s just so tight! For a medium, it’s super small from all angles. The straps were actually cutting into my shoulders, which rarely happens for me. And it was a pain to wriggle into. I like how full-coverage it is, and the pattern is super cool. But it’s not something I’d feel comfortable wearing to the studio or out for a jog.

Onzie Elastic Capri Madonna Leggings, Size M/L – Retail Value $56.00? Cost to Keep $56.00

This second pair of leggings is also capri-length. Not awesome, but I do really dig the colorful, prism-like pattern. I couldn’t find this exact style online (except for in youth sizes), so I linked to an “Elastic” style in a different color.

Check out my review of what I got in the Wantable Women's Fitness Box for June 2017!

These leggings felt super tight on me. The fabric seemed thinner than I liked, and the printed pattern seemed to stretch out a bit as I pulled them on, which is never a good look. I really like the way the striped elastic waistband looks, but practically, it just kind of pinches into my body in a way I don’t like. I have a feeling that someone with a less curvy silhouette would look rad in these, but for me, I kept struggling with where the elastic should land. When I left these lower on my hips, the elastic band cut into my hip squish in a really unflattering and uncomfortable way, but when I pulled them higher up, I felt like I was taxing the fabric a little much. It’s a bummer because I love the print.

Onzie Chic Bra Summer Rose M/L – Retail Value $48.00? Cost to Keep $48.00

This was another style I couldn’t find online—I linked to the same style in a different color to give an idea of the retail value.

I like strappy designs like this. It was a simpler bra, but I felt comfortable and secure in it. I could see hanging onto this style, though $48.00 for a bra I feel just okay about (not “oh AWESOME!”) is a bit of a stretch for me.

Soybu Pinnacle Amp Wave Bra, Size M – Retail Value $49.00, Cost to Keep $49.00

This was my favorite piece in the box, in terms of design. I love the modern, edgy pattern and the way the straps lay at unique angles.

The problem, of course, is that the band that goes around my body is super stiff. It’s great that it’s secure, but it hugged my body in a way that wasn’t super comfortable. As you can see, it kind of created a little roll below it and squished me up into the bra in a kind of uncool way. I don’t have any problem with a roll here and there (that’s how bodies are!), but not if the reason for the roll is an uncomfortable band cutting into me!

The back looks so cool, too. Man, I wish this had been a good fit!

Sub_Urban Riot Downtown Legging Riot Black, Size L – Retail Value $58.00, Cost to Keep $58.00

Ah, the sweet sight of full-length leggings! Unlike the other designs, these leggings are a cotton knit blend, so they’re soft and breathable.

Not sure how I feel about the giant “RIOT” on the ankle—I’m a fan of the whole clothes-that-say-things trend, and I know it’s the brand, but I don’t know whether “riot” really goes with my usual yoga vibes… I’ll think on it…

Verdict: After my first experience with Wantable, I’d say they’re a great source for exciting, fresh designs. I wouldn’t say they’re all that great from a discount perspective unless you decide to buy at least three of the items (to earn the Wantable discount). Most of the items here were listed for about the same amount as they’d go for at a retail store (and again, each piece was between $41.00-$66.00). I also wouldn’t say that Wantable has their sizing down yet. I might’ve fallen for a few more of these products had they not been so tight. I’ve had lots of luck with other fitness fashion subscriptions fitting my body beautifully on the first try, so I’m probably not as patient a customer here. I’m considering lowering the price point to see if this subscription becomes more cost effective, but I worry that the sizing/quality issues will get a bit worse if I do so.

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

I really enjoy reading your reviews! Capris that length aren’t really my thing either and I’m 6′ tall. It’s either right below the knee capri or full length all the way 🙂

Suzanne

I hate capri length work out pants too. I hate feeling like I have to shave to work out. If I’m shaving, I better be wearing a dress.

Alexis

Yesssss to that!

Victoria

So what happens if the whole box sucks?

Jann

Great review! Perfect workout clothes are so hard to find, especially when you are doing yoga. They have to fit great or with all the movement it is uncomfortable (the rolling down waistband is the worst!).

Svetlana7e

Best thing is these outfits are shoes. They look so cool.

Margi

I AGREE! Can you pls link to your Nikes, Anna. Loving your shoe-style 👍🏼
