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. In my experience, you get a new stylist for each order, rather than keeping the same one. This month, I got Catherine, who left a note about New Year’s fitness motivation!
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. I like that Wantable sends a bunch of notification emails during my return period to make sure I don’t miss my deadline.
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″. In short, I’m short. And a little curvy.
Colosseum Amour Legging in Satelite Print, Size Large – Cost to Keep $69.00
I’m into the print of these dark gray leggings—it looks like a dark gray map of a city from above. There are mesh sections around the calves, which gives them capri-like breathability without being capris (which I’m just not into). I feel really secure in the high waistband and the body-hugging, nylon/spandex fabric. They’re comfy, smooth, sleek, and fit great. Nice!
Glyder Rider Legging in Heather Baton Rouge, Size Large – Cost to Keep $84.00
I really love the mulberry color of these soft, comfy leggings, but there’s something about them that’s not for me. I think maybe the black panels on the thighs are just a little awkward looking—they don’t look bad, but they aren’t quite flattering either. These poly/nylon/spandex leggings feel great, though. The waist is really high, and the fabric feels like really thick knit leggings.
Lukka Lux Flynn 3/4 Legging in Black/Pink, Size Large – Cost to Keep $79.00
If you couldn’t tell by the color, these leggings support breast cancer charities. That’s really cool! The design of these leggings is a little all over the place—there are mesh panels, pink panels, mesh panels over top of pink panels, fishnet panels… It’s a lot. They’re a size large, but I don’t feel like they fit as securely and comfortably as the other pairs in the box. These are sleeker, smooth, and wicking, which is always a plus!
Shape Active Impasto Legging Impasto Print, Size Large – Cost to Keep $78.00
The info booklet explains these leggings as having a “wet look”, which isn’t really my thing. But I like that they’re black (so they’ll go with everything), and I liked that they have a thinner weight to them (so that they’ll feel super comfortable in warm, twisty yoga classes). Even so, they’re moisture-wicking and they’re nice and long on me. I could loop the ends of the leggings over my heels before yoga class to warm up my ankles!
Wear It to Heart High Neck Bra in Mahalo, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $45.00
I couldn’t find this specific color online, but I linked to a similar style in a darker hue. I’ve gotten Wear It to Heart items before, and they tend to run on the small side—this bra top isn’t uncomfortable, but it’s not as forgiving as other bras in the box. I like the high neckline a lot, though the pink pattern might not be my first choice. It’s pretty, just not my usual style.
Beachbody Intent Compression Bra in Merlot, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $47.50
This bra, on the other hand, was soooo comfortable! It was sturdy enough for me, but was incredibly forgiving and had an all-over stretch that I really liked. The design is a little more… I dunno… clinical looking than the other cute styles in the box, but it’s so easy to wear that I think it’s worth it.
good hYOUman Taylor Lounge Hoodie Fig Reactive Do What You Love, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $84.00
I couldn’t find this exact hoodie design on the good hYOUman site, so I linked to another pattern on the same cut of top. I actually like the color of this lightweight, jersey pullover, though the off-center logo on the back is a little weird to me. The message on the front is positive, and I like the delicate script. I could see tossing this easygoing shirt over my sports bra while I cool down in savasana.
The Verdict: I liked the burgundy colors running through this month’s shipment, but there were some cuts that weren’t quite me. That’s the convenience about this box, though—I can try new brands on in the comfort of my home and send them back in the giant blue prepaid envelope rather than having to dig around for my size at the store, then try things on in a tiny dressing room. I’m always skeptical whether trend-conscious clothes will work for my curvier bod, so I’m always pleased when I find something fun in a Wantable box. Those Colosseum leggings in particular were really cool and fit great!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Wantable curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available. What you get might not be the same as what I got, but you also might get something that fits your style and body even better than the looks above! Sign up and see what they choose for you!
Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping. The total retail value of the items inside was $486.50. If I keep anything in box, the $20.00 box fee goes towards my purchase, which is cool. Also, if I keep 5 or more items, there’s a 20% discount. That means, if I kept everything, I’d spend $387.20 more.
