Wantable Plus Fitness Subscription Box Review – February 2018
Wantable Fitness is a fitness styling subscription service similar to Stitch Fix. You fill out an in-depth survey about your fitness clothing preferences, and your stylist picks out items for you. Wantable Fitness has been around for years, but they just announced in December that they were expanding to include plus sizes, and I could not be more excited! I signed up right away!
The fee for this service is $20 a month, and that fee goes toward whichever items you choose to keep. If you keep 3 or 4 items you also get a 20% discount, and if you keep all 5 items you get a 30% discount.
This box was sent to us at no cost for review. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes.)

Wantable Plus Fitness February 2018 Review
When I signed up for this service, I took a pretty lengthy quiz in which I indicated my price, size and style preferences. I would expect what I receive to be reflective of my tastes, and for these boxes to vary quite a bit from subscriber to subscriber. There is also a note from my stylist, Christina. It explains why she chose the items she picked for me.
This is the invoice of the items they sent me this month. On the right, it shows my cost to keep each item. The total comes to $385. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $97. That’s a deep discount!
Movement Tee by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $58
The description of this tee says it is a base layer, so I am giving it a pass on the snugness. I would actually expect a base layer to fit at least this snugly. I don’t fully understand the purpose of mesh detailing on a base layer, though. I guess that’s for when I get too hot and peel off the outer layers? I’m confused. This top is a proprietary fiber content (DryFuze®) which is good for moisture wicking. I like the length of this tee a lot, and I love thumb holes for base layers and other winter tops!
Optic Legging by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $52
I actually got these same leggings last month in a bigger size and they were a bit saggy, so this month I got the proper size. They are still really funky, but they are no more flattering than they were last month, unfortunately. I still think the tweed is very cool, but I guess it’s hard to make tweed have the proper amount of compression?
Curv Pacific Top by Vimmia – Cost to Keep $64
This cotton top is super soft and seems like it would be really comfortable to work out in! It is a bit thicker than a regular cotton tee, and it has a really boxy cut, so I thought it would work as an outer layer paired with the green base layer, but I am not loving the way it looks. On the other hand, I can’t see it working on its own either because the arm holes are really big. Maybe with a sports bra with a pop of color?
Short Sleeve Space Dye Tee by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $34
This is my favorite outfit this month, and this tee is my favorite piece in the box! It’s super soft and comfortable, and the cut is pretty flattering for my figure. This is a blend of synthetic materials, but it doesn’t feel hot like some spandex pieces do. I like it!
Lola Skinny Capri by Lola Getts – Cost to Keep $77
These leggings are perfect! They are just basic black with exactly the right amount of compression. They fit well and still allow me to stretch and bend as needed. I am open to trying different styles of leggings, but since my legs are my least favorite feature, I can never have too many pairs of matte black leggings for the gym.
Knit Sweater with Zip by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $48
I love the color of this knit sweater, and the style, and the softness, and the thumb holes! Unfortunately, the cut doesn’t flatter me at all. I also think it’s getting a little late in the season for sweaters – spring is trying to spring here in Georgia!
Boost Moto Legging by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $52
I received these leggings last month, too, and asked for them to be sent in a smaller size. They definitely fit well this time! They also have good compression. I feel like they’re really interesting, but I don’t think they look good on me. It might be because I am self-conscious about my legs, but I don’t know if I would be comfortable in these at the gym.
The Verdict: This was my second box from Wantable Fitness Edit, and I didn’t feel like it was really successful. At the same time, I think my stylist and I are both struggling to figure out what will work for me. When choosing workout apparel, I always choose comfort over style, but now I have the option to have both! So I’m in somewhat unchartered territory here. I feel like Wantable sent me a lot of great options, and it was fun to try everything out! Plus I got one complete outfit that I really like and will wear often! From here, I think my stylist and I can start making notes and getting my items a little more tailored to my needs.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping and returns. The total retail value of the items inside was $385.00. The cost of each item is listed alongside it above, but if I choose to keep at least 5 items, I get a 20% discount. The $20.00 cost of the box would also be applied to the purchase, meaning I’d end up spending $288 for the whole box. Ultimately, that’s a savings of about 25%. The average price per piece is $48.
