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).

Clare Midi Sports Bra in White, Size 3x – Retail Value $44.95, VIP Price $34.95

OMG! As soon as I saw this sports bra, I had to have it! I absolutely love the mesh detailing on this piece. This is not only extremely sexy, but incredibly functional. This may be the sports bra I received from Fabletics that I feel most secure in. The material is very structured and stretchy. The bottom band is incredibly thick and not flimsy. The mesh details on the back, sides, and front provided added support as well. I can bounce around in this sports bra and not be fearful of anything being exposed. This will be my summer staple in and out of the gym! I plan on wearing this with my friends to PRIDE Fest in June because it is incredibly comfortable, especially in our gross humidity! I feel as though a lot of bodacious babes are predisposed to avoid white clothing like the plague, it has been put into our brains that we aren’t allowed. Forget that nonsense— this white sports bra is everything! Break the rules and sweat in this gorgeous piece! My only complaint is that this sports bra is not available in every color of the rainbow. Fabletics, I need this baby in black, red, olive green, pink, aqua, orange, and yellow— I AM IN LOVE!

High-Waisted Solid Powerhold Short in Black Size 3x—Retail Value $39.95, VIP Price $29.95

Biker shorts are a must during the summer months. I wear them alone or underneath dresses to keep my thighs from creating a fire from the friction that is known as CHUB RUB. When I saw that Fabletics offered shorts as well up to 3x, I knew I had to try them! These shorts fit like a dream! Fabletics certainly wasn’t lying when they said these shorts are high-waisted. There is absolutely no issue of my dupa hanging out in these— I am completely covered in the front and the back! The fabric is thick and stretchy but has a lot of breathability. These are immensely comfortable to work out or lounge in. I am absolutely in love with these shorts and I know I will get a ton of wear from them along with the sports bra on this order!

Verdict: This month’s Fabletics selections were FIRE! This may be my favorite outfit yet, and that says a lot since I have many outfits I love from Fabletics! I am pleased that they offered both these pieces in plus sizes and hope to see both pieces in different colors and styles as well because they both are comfortable, flattering, and incredibly well made. I truly hope to see them continue to expand their size range with a variety of styles and colors. Especially since they have competitors like Torrid and Lane Bryant that cater to the plus size market for fashionable work out gear.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The sports bra and shorts are still on the site but in limited sizes. Sign up here to nab this entire look!

Coupon – For a limited time, new VIP members can use this link to get their first outfit for $19 (a $49.95 value).

Value Breakdown: This outfit cost $64.90 + free shipping. The original, non-VIP price is $129.90, meaning I got this ensemble for about 23% off!

Sunny

I have a couple skirts I am not wearing due to “chub rub”. I have similar shorts from Fabletics but they are too short to wearing running. I am am going to put them under my shirts. Thanks Nicole.

Rae

You look amazing. I’m signing up.

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Rae! I think you will love it!

Helen

What is a dupa?

Helen

Never mind I found the meaning. That’s a new one for me. I mean the definition is new. My duba is old, very old. 😉

Nicole Rieder

I had a polish grandma, so dupa was said a lot!

And dupas of all ages are good!

B

Pants great, the top… no

Nicole Rieder

B, thanks for checking out my review!

Carrie

Love your review as usual Nicole! And seriously love that bra! I used to wear bike shorts under dresses too but recently discovered Under Summers which are what I would call slip shorts. Super comfy and helpful with the chub rub issues and cute too. Not affiliated with the company, just super excited about my recent discovery and wanted to share. 😃

Nicole Rieder

Oooh thank you, Carrie! I have been fortunate to not have to wear shorts as often due to Chafe Zone’s Chub Rub Stick—it is phenomenal! But I will have to check those out!

Lee Ann

My low fat self wishes I could have the something more ample to show period. What someone works out in should be about preferences and not body size. Nichole rock it like a redhead.

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Lee Ann! I figure it is all about how you feel and what you are comfortable in. If someone has a problem with what I wear or my body it is their problem, not mine!

Lisa

Great review, Nicole!!!

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Lisa!

MinnePuffin

I’m so glad you got that bra! I’ve been debating it, but wasn’t sure cause all the models are less endowed than me. It’s really helpful to hear a review from a fellow busty gal.

Nicole Rieder

Youare welcome, MinniePuffin! I try to show a variety of styles, especially to show their fit on my body to help anyone that reads my review! I never stray away from showing cleavage either! Hahaha. Hope you enjoy the bra! It is so comfy!

Amy

They look great on you! Rocking it all!

Nicole Rieder

Thanks so much, Amy!

Eileen

I like how much coverage the bra gives, but I don’t like pullover sports bras. I find getting them on and off so awkward.

Nicole Rieder

Awe, fair enough, Eileen. They can be a bit awkward to remove, I agree!

Erica

I find getting pullover bras over my ample bosom uncomfortable to say the least

Nicole Rieder

They can be for sure, Erica! This one was surprisingly easy! I have had some mishaps in the past with sports bra. This one was ace!

Lacey

But what lipstick is that!?!

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Lacey! Give me Mocha Megalast Liquid Catsuit by Wet’n’Wild! Their liquid lipsticks are amazing!

katie

And the sneakers,I WANT the sneakers.

Snowhitetwin

Ummmmmmm not sure what to say….top is not very appropriate unless one is working out by herself??

Traci Rhein

How is the top inappropriate? I’m quite positive it shows less than any bathing suit would. I personally love Nicole’s reviews because I am waaaaay to body conscious and I always think she looks great and the biggest reason she looks great is because she feels great. Confidence always looks better than self-conscious, I don’t care who you are 🙂

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Traci! Agreeeeeed!

Snowhitetwin

Maybe it’s the way the picture was taken?? Sorry I didn’t like the top.

ac

Pretty sure the whole point of the design of that top is to be seen. She can judge what she thinks is appropriate for herself.

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, ac! I
And AMEN!

Kathie

Yeah, that’s what I thought. I would wear that under my workout shirt, never on its own.

Nicole Rieder

To each their own, ladies!
