Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + Coupon – December 2017

This post may contain referral/affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Fabletics Plus Size December 2017 Box

Fabletics is a monthly fitness apparel subscription co-founded by Kate Hudson. Recently, Fabletics introduced a plus size line of their fashionable workout gear! You can shop their line in two different ways—either you can shop through their regular store or sign up as a VIP member. The VIP Membership works 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 box. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).

Fabletics Plus Size December 2017 Box returns and exchanges

Their invoice is a standard invoice with details on what was purchased along with 24-hour customer service info.

Fabletics included this $100 Wine Voucher for This would be great for the holidays, but even Valentine’s Day and Galentine’s Day!

This Hello Fresh coupon was also included in my order. Every time I get one of these coupons I am tempted due to the reviews for Hello Fresh by Jess and Anna!

Wesley Outfit (includes Bluebell Midi Sports Bra and Salar Printed Powerhold Leggings) in Size 3x. Retail Value $129.90, VIP $59.95, and $29.97 for brand new VIP member 1st outfit.

I am a sucker for animal prints, so when I saw these monochromatic blue zebra print leggings I had to have them! I also am a fan of sleeveless mock turtlenecks, so I did not feel compelled to swap out the top in this set. I also like that I could easily wear the top with any of my other leggings from my past reviews! That is more outfit combos which means more bang for my buck!

I also love the zipper option, though I suggest just putting the top on first and then adjusting the zipper. I tried to unzip the top and then put it on and zip it up. It was dang near impossible trying to zip over my chest that way. So, big busted ladies out there, heed my advice on this one! The struggle is real!

This particular sports bra is midi length and on me fits like an actual top more so than a sports bra. I like the see-through mesh detail on the back at the waist as well. I am happy that the length is longer than it is on the model on the site too because I won’t have to worry about pulling this down while working out.

These pants, have I mentioned how much I love them? The Salar leggings by Fabletics are consistently my favorite due to their great structure, high waist, and awesome fit. This print may be my favorite of the pairs I have from Fabletics. The print reminds me of old Zubaz! If you had Zubaz and a Starter jacket in the 90s, you were the coolest. I was not the coolest and didn’t have Zubaz (we were a Skidz household), so I guess I am making up for lost time with these awesome leggings! Better late than never, right?

The fit of these leggings is wonderful. There isn’t a lot of gapping and I should not be chaffed working out in them. Big thumbs up!

Excuse my chipped toenail polish. Just focus in on the awesomeness that is this blue zebra print. I have been saying for years there is a lack of zebra and tiger print items. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE FINALLY BEEN HEARD!

Verdict: My love affair continues with Fabletics. I get excited each month to see the new featured outfits and styles, and this design is my favorite yet. That says a lot since I have loved every outfit from them I have received so far. The quality for the VIP price can’t be beaten. I am pleased that Fabletics and other retailers like Target, Lane Bryant, and Torrid realize that the market for plus size workout gear is an untapped one that deserves to be catered to! I am excited to see what they will have in the new year as well!

  1. I am curious if you have shared your measurements before? I’ve recently gained weight due to medications and am not sure what size I am, but you look close to me. If you’re not comfortable sharing I understand!

    • I don’t mind sharing them. I am roughly 49-46-54. That is me measuring myself, so it is pretty accurate I think? Hahaha. I have lost a lot of inches in my mid section it seems. Not so much in my ass. No complaints though. Haha. I range so much in sizes these days, it can be hard to keep up. And I try not to buy too much since old clothing is fitting me again.

  2. I own that top & I LOVE it! It is the perfect piece to wear for working out. It is hard to zip, though!

    • Yes, S! Zippering it is like an event in of itself! Haha

  3. Seriously LOVE your hair. I miss bangs…but I always end up growing them out.

    • Awe thank you! I am the opposite, I could never grow mine out, Rosemary! Last time I did was in college and I went and cut them as soon as they were fully grown out. The bang life chose me.

  4. I thought it was just blue camouflage when I first saw those pants… they’d be fabulous either way but zebra is more fun!

    • I can see that, heat! Either way totally a great print.
