Wantable Fitness December 2017 Review
The box comes with a booklet that contains a list of the pieces inside as well as a note from my stylist. This month, my stylist is Kelsey. I think I’ve gotten a different stylist with each box, unlike other programs like Trunk Club where you work with just one person. I liked that Kelsey’s note had a bit of personality to it, rather than something super straightforward. I almost forgot that it’s almost resolution time…
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 $39.00-$84.00.
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. They’ll send you a couple emails reminding you to send your unwanted pieces back before the deadline, but I like to set a reminder on my own calendar as soon as I get my package, just in case.
The note in the info booklet mentions that these pieces are intended to be mixed and matched, so I did the “styling” of these outfits myself (rather than going by recommended matches). 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. I’m also just 5′ 3″, so I’m on the shorter side.
TLF Apparel Roam Capri Stone Heather Legging, Size Large – Cost to Keep $78.00
Capri leggings aren’t my favorite silhouette, especially during winter (We got our first big snow yesterday!) when I need ways to cover up for jogs or just the very cold walk from my car to the gym/studio. That said, these leggings were perfectly comfy and had a nice high waist that I felt secure inside. The leggings even have slim mesh side pockets for things like keys or gym membership tags. My favorite thing about this pair is that they’re made from a recycled polyester material that has anti-bacterial, wicking material. I like that they’re eco-friendly and effective at keeping me feelin’ comfy during sweat sessions.
MPG Sport Audition 2.0 Capri Leggings in Raisin, Size Large – Cost to Keep $54.00
Ooo, I really like the deep wine-like color of these leggings! The black panels and sheer details around the knees are cool, too. They break up the solid shade. These leggings are made from a smooth poly-spandex blend that’s got a great sturdy thickness to it. I felt pretty snug inside this pair, but there is a drawstring inside the waist in case I wanted to cinch myself in even more. There’s a tiny inner pocket, too.
Shape Active Odyssey Wrap in Black – Cost to Keep $84.00
While I love the idea of this wrap-inspired jacket, I kind of wish it had a bit more structure to it. This stretchy, moisture-wicking poly-blend jacket has a little zipper up by the left shoulder that tacks one side to the other. It still swings open sometimes, and the cowl neckline isn’t the most flattering to me, I don’t think. What I do like is that it has thumb holes! I like that snuggly touch.
Sam Edelman Mia Bra Burgundy Snake Bra, Size Medium – Costs to Keep $39.00 (Found here for $23.40)
I didn’t feel like modeling this one in this review, just because when I tried it on… let’s just say that sheer mesh panel in the front doesn’t leave a ton to the imagination! It seems narrow when it lays flat, but it stretches out wider when it’s on. Sam Edelman is more of a fashion brand, of course (I wasn’t aware until now that they made fitness clothes), so it’s not super surprising that this bra top is more focused on an edgy look. That said, the bottom band is wide and soft, making for a smooth line, and the bra is supportive enough for someone like me. Still, I can’t say I’d be comfortable wearing it by itself at the gym or yoga studio.
Glyder Ninja Crop Leggings in Black, Size Large – Cost to Keep $68.00
More capris! Again, not my favorite cut. But the cutouts by the ankle look pretty cool, and the smooth, sturdy nylon-spandex fabric feels sleek. According to the information in my invoice, this particular style was made for curvier silhouettes. I definitely feel confident in these not sliding around nor falling down mid-vinyasa, so whatever they’re doin’ is working!
Ziane Radiance Sports Bra, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $48.00
This bra looks simple from the front, but the back is intricate and awesome. I like when straps focus their powers around the center of my back rather than just being single straps that go up and over each shoulder—it feels like it makes the bra more secure in both the front and the back, especially during workouts with plenty of twists and turns. The bra has a great deal of coverage and feels really supportive. It’s ultra comfy, too—the fabric has a nice give to it without sacrificing stability.
Onzie Tulip Back Cowl Neck Heather Dahlia Pullover Sweatshirt, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $65.00
This top was so comfy and breezy to wear! It’s a poly-rayon-spandex blend, so it feels refreshing and smooth against my skin. Again, I’ve got thumb holes to keep my hands cozy. And while I wish the neckline had a hood, rather than just a cowl, it sits close enough to my neck that it ends up feeling like a circle scarf, which is much appreciated. The open back? Eh, I could do without it during this snowy season, though it’d be perfect for spring.
The Verdict: I think my favorite part about this month’s shipment was the color palette. I was surprised how much I liked the deep eggplant and burgundy colors that appeared in these leggings and tops! I do wish that the pieces were more substantial and seasonally appropriate—layer ’em up with socks or other tops, and those capris and jackets could do just fine in the winter months, but I’d rather have gotten pieces that give me the complete warmth and cover I’m looking for. I did really like getting the chance to try a few brands that I was unfamiliar with this month!
