Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + Coupon – January 2018
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 you 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).
The Subscription Box: Fabletics VIP Membership
The Cost: $49.95 a month. This price goes towards the cost of the outfits curated for you. The cost of outfits varies, but you’ll only be charged for what you choose to actually buy. If you want, you can choose to skip the month, and you won’t be charged. If you don’t spend your $49.95 nor choose to skip, Fabletics will charge you the $49.95 and just save it as store credit for you to use later.

Fabletics Plus Clothing January 2018 Review
I did not receive the typical invoice or coupon offers this month in my Fabletics order.
Yukon Sleeveless Dress, Size 3x – Retail Value $79.95, VIP $49.95 (previously on sale for $24.98)
So, this month I figured I would opt to go against my normal leggings with sports bra combo. I found this athletic, sleeveless, hooded dress in heather grey on the site on sale! It makes my heart happy to find a great deal. The fabric is an incredibly soft sweatshirt material. It would be a great dress to wear for post work out or even power walking around outside in the spring months.
As you can see this piece has a hood and kangaroo pockets. This casual dress is the perfect marriage of a hooded sweatshirt and a sleeveless dress. I want to wear this ensemble out with my faux leather biker jacket for my weekend errand running. I am all for socially acceptable pajama-like ensembles these days.
Here is the detail of the hood and the adjustable drawstrings for tightening the hood. Serving prizefighter realness here, am I right?
Here is another detail on the pockets as well. I mean, you can’t go wrong with pockets on a dress, am I right? I will be storing my phone and Larabars in there, for sure!
I was concerned initially that my bodacious posterior may make this dress significantly shorter, but fortunately, it gives my back end full coverage. Hallelujah! I won’t have to worry about anything hanging out. Phew! I am excited also because this dress is modest enough in length that I could forgo wearing leggings in the early summer months.
High-Waisted Solid Powerhold 7/8 Leggings, Size 3x — Retail Value $54.95, VIP Price $39.95
Fabletics leggings are my favorite; they are so dang comfy! I have a few pairs of black leggings from them in different styles and lengths I reviewed previously, but this pair is unique in that they aren’t cropped or have a cutout design. These are very standard, classic leggings. I usually select high waist options in all pants, but especially in workout pants because it is absolutely heinous to repeatedly have to readjust myself. I don’t want to have to pull up my pants Urkel style! These leggings fit like an absolute dream due to the ample stretch. Also, they are incredibly opaque, so there will be no issue of your gotchies being seen through the fabric. The material is rather thick but immensely comfortable. Just an FYI: I plan on living in these leggings until the summertime, so don’t judge me, guys!
Verdict: I am constantly impressed by the quality of the Fabletics pieces I receive each month. This month’s selections were far more toned down than last month’s, but I still love the style of this ensemble. Also, this outfit is ridiculously comfortable. I will get a lot of wear with this ensemble in and out of the gym. My only complaint regarding Fabletics is that I would like for them to have as broad of a selection in plus size pieces as they do their straight sizes. Each month, it seems to improve more and more, but I would love to see every piece to be inclusive for all sizes across the board.
