Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + Coupon – March 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.
The Products: High-quality, on-trend athletic clothing curated to fit your size, style, and needs. Think leggings, tops, shorts, and outerwear for yoga, running, and all kinds of other workouts. Fabletics is targeted towards women, primarily, but they do offer workout clothes for men, too!
Ships to: Free shipping to the contiguous United States when you spend $49.95 or more. $4.95 flat rate shipping if you spend less than that threshold. $9.00 to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and APO addresses. $5.95 VIP rate to Australia, or $9.95 otherwise.
Fabletics Plus Clothing March 2018 Review
This month’s orders didn’t come with any printed invoices.
Fabletics did, however, include this $100 Wine Voucher for Nakedwines.com. A service like this is great for stocking up wines as gifts for housewarmings, dinner parties, or for the holidays. Imagine all the chill, low-key, summer porch hangs you could be supplying vino at!
Liora Dress, Size 3x — Retail Value $84.95, VIP Price $59.95, Semi-Annual Sale price $10
I did two separate orders this month because there was a VIP Semi-Annual Sale going on that had deep discounts on clothing pieces and a free leggings deal. Since I had luck with a dress in the January review, I opted to try another one during this sale. Upon trying out this dress, I am not sure how I feel about it. The style is a bit bulky, and the fit is a bit odd. The cut makes it feel like I am wearing it backwards though I am not. The neckline is a high turtleneck that is adjustable with the toggles in the back. This dress paired with leggings will be fantastic for walking and jogging in cooler months.
Anzu Treggings, Size 3x – Retail Value $79.95, VIP Price $49.95, Semi-Annual Sale Price: FREE
I am that person that is ALWAYS trying to figure out ways to wear leggings as pants at my office job. I love the comfort of leggings and how they hug the curves of my body; if I had my way, I would wear them every day! When I saw that these treggings were a part of the Fabletics semi-annual sale I knew I had to have them! Treggings are made of a leggings fabric that is cut into a trouser style pant. You get the best of both worlds like a Puggle (those dogs are so dang cute!). The fabric is thick but incredibly stretchy. I love the tapered leg on these and the zippered pockets! I have worn these a few times to work without any detection of these being activewear, so thanks Fabletics!
Sierra High Top, Size 9.5 – Retail Value $69.95, VIP Price $49.95
I have been on the hunt for some gym shoes for some time now. I generally wear Chuck Taylor low top style sneakers, but I wanted a shoe with more support. These sneakers appealed to me because they reminded me of high top Vans, so I had to try them out! I was really surprised by how structured these shoes are and the cushiony support of their insoles. The insoles legitimately feel like a memory foam pillow on my feet. I wore these out shopping with my mom, which is sort of a marathon, and the shoes held up and left my feet feeling great! These pair fantastically with any work out ensemble, but also are stylish enough to look great with a cotton dress or skinny jeans, a t-shirt, and blazer for an elevated casual look.
Verdict: I am still loving Fabletics! This month I tried some pieces that weren’t your typical outfit set and got some interesting results. The dress I received had an odd fit, but I will still get a ton of wear from this piece. The treggings and shoes were my favorites for this month’s selections. Both pieces will work great in the gym and on the street which makes them such versatile values. I also love the sales Fabletics offers. I still am blown away that I got a dress, sneakers, and pants from them for $59.95 total! My only gripe with Fabletics, as always, is that I would love to see more of the straight size items also be available in plus size options. Bodacious babes want cute clothing and activewear too!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The shoes are available in my size, but the dress and treggings aren’t available in the 3x I got. They are though in smaller sizes! Sign up here to nab the sports bra in your size, or browse other styles and outfits.
Value Breakdown: This outfit cost $59.95 + free shipping. The original, non-VIP price is $234.95, meaning I got this ensemble for about 75% off!
