Fabletics VIP Membership Review + Coupon – January 2018
Fabletics is a monthly fitness apparel subscription co-founded by Kate Hudson. You can shop Fabletics in two ways—you can shop the regular store, or you can sign up for their VIP membership. VIP memberships work 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.
The key takeaway here is that this subscription won’t automatically send you monthly packages like other services do. You have to hop 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.

Fabletics VIP Membership January 2018 Review
Rhiannon Two-Piece Outfit, Size Medium Top, Size Large Bottoms – Retail Value $124.90, VIP Price $59.95
There are so many fun spring colors in the current Fabletics catalog, but I went with a relatively neutral pick. There’s a community adult beginner’s ballet class hosted near my apartment, and I’m eager to sign up and give it a shot. If I do, this would be the perfect outfit—the class is okay with students skipping out on the usual tights and leotard, as long as the clothing you wear is form-fitting. I’ve been dragging my feet about signing up, but getting this outfit in the mail was a nice kick to do so!
I thought the form-fitting ivory top looked pretty on the model, and I’m happy that it seems equally flattering to me. The mesh panel in the front feels very “dancer”, as does the sweetheart peekaboo neckline. It’s very modern and cool but still sort of romantic and feminine. There’s a lightly padded bra and band built right into this top, too, so I don’t have to worry about finding a bra to suit its unique silhouette. Now, I’m not a huge fan of the mesh panel in the back of the top, as it lands right where my natural waist is and thus, bunches up quite a bit. That said, on a longer torso, it could look really elegant. Oh, and I love the feeling of this fabric. The website calls it “Performance Jersey”—it’s really lightweight and feels almost like a super smooth, stretchy t-shirt, except this top is wicking!
The other awesome part about this outfit? The leggings. I’ve mentioned before how much I love the Fabletics Salar line of leggings. I feel like they complement my body’s shape really well so that they’re equal parts comfortable and secure. (I never feel like they’re about to roll down my stomach or sink down my backside during a yoga class or high-intensity, body-moving-in-all-kinds-of-crazy-directions workout class.) These are the Salar “Powerhold” leggings, which are a bit thinner than Salar styles I’ve ordered previously, but not in a way that they felt flimsy at all. Made of nylon, polyester, and elastane, they’ve got a lot of stretch and a delightfully smooth feel. The waistline is also high enough that I feel nicely packed into these leggings. Plus, they’re solid black, meaning I could weasel them into some casual outfits if I wanted.
Verdict: I’m really happy with this month’s outfit! It was $10.00 over the baseline $49.95 deposit you put down each month for membership, but as usual, I think the quality holds up to the price. Both pieces fit really nicely, yet I didn’t feel restricted in either one—perfect for the ballet class I’m hoping to take! I would’ve loved the top to come in one of the beautiful lilacs or even orange shades that were featured in many of the other available outfits this month, but for my purposes, the neutral palate is A-OK.
