Wantable Plus Fitness Subscription Box Review – March 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 March 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. This is a note from my stylist, Tatjana. 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 $482. If I keep everything, I get 20% off, plus I get my $20 styling fee deducted. That means a potential discount of $116.40. That’s a deep discount!
Serena Tulip Tank by Marika Curves – Cost to Keep $36
I absolutely love the cut of this cotton tank! It is so flattering! I love the idea of upping my style game for workouts. The price is good, too. I’m just not sure about the color – I usually stay away from peach…
Curv High Waist Impact Legging by Vimmia – Cost to Keep $137
I’m not gonna lie, these leggings are extraordinary. They smooth out every imperfection on the entire half of my body. The compression is phenomenal, yet they are still comfortable somehow. The cut and the detailing is flattering. Even the little sheer panels are really cute. But wow, $137 for leggings. That’s a lot of money for leggings. Here’s a close up of the panel details:
Training Jacket by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $94
This cotton/poly blend jacket is super cute! I love the thumb holes, of course, and the stylish detailing in the back. It fits well and is comfortable. I wish I could do a test workout in it to see how warm it would get. It doesn’t feel super breathable, it feels more like it would retain body heat. I have a feeling it’s going to be too warm here in Georgia for this jacket very soon, but I’m not sure.
Paige Tee by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $44
This cotton tee is really comfortable and soft! I don’t usually go for pastels, but I am really feeling this light green right now. I also like the cut of this tee. On the other hand, it’s a bit spendy for a cotton tee.
Essential Basic 7/8 Leggings by ActiveZone – Cost to Keep $48
These leggings are also awesome! I love the space-dye pattern. These are a jersey spandex blend, and they have great compression while remaining comfortable. I think they look pretty good on. Plus, my legs are short, so 7/8 is the perfect length for me! Here’s a close-up of the pattern:
Carmel Ultra Cozy Cowl by Balance Collection – Cost to Keep $55
I absolutely love this top! It is more lightweight and more breathable than the jacket due to the fact that it is a knit blend. So, I feel like it would be a great top to wear over my tee and then peel off when it gets too warm. I love the way it looks! The colors are great, and I love the cowl, the cut, the pocket, and the thumbholes. Details!
Hi-Rise “SS” Capri by Shape Active – Cost to Keep $55
These leggings are my least favorite of the three I received this month but they are still great. They have really good compression, plus this cool pocket in the waistband would be perfect for my key. I already have several similar pairs of leggings, though…
The Verdict: This was my third box from Wantable Fitness Edit, and so far, my favorite. I had some issues figuring out my size and style in the first two, but I think this one had tons of cute options! When it comes to workout clothes, I was raised in the old-school “just wear an old t-shirt” mindset, so being fashionable at the gym is kind of new territory to me. I like the wardrobe I am building a lot though! This month the cowl was probably my favorite, but there were so many nice pieces! Everything worked!
