Wantable Fitness June 2018 Review
In the box, I got a slip about how the subscription works.
Here’s the list of what I got this month along with a note from the person who styled the box for me.
In the style quiz I took when signing up, I noted the types of things I like, love, and dislike wearing, as well as the price range I’d be most comfortable spending on different pieces (like tops, bottoms, and tertiary styles like jackets, etc.). To get a feeling for the prices and quality I should expect with this subscription, I picked the mid-range price bracket. It looks like the items I got in this box run from $48.00-$88.00.
Soybu Paschi Capri in Black, Size Large – Cost to Keep $59.00
I’m not a huge fan of capri leggings, though you’ll see I got quite a few pairs this month. This black pair was one of the longest designs, which I appreciated. The hip and calf details make these leggings feel a little more special than just plain black leggings (and thus slightly more worth the higher cost). The fabric is 88% polyester, 12% spandex with a nice thickness and a finish that’s more like a knit t-shirt than some leggings that feel super smooth and spandexy.
Vimmia Printed Core Capri in Amazon, Size Large – Retail Value $92.00, Cost to Keep $88.00
More capris! This pair is just not my style. Snakeskin (or alligator skin?) print is not a favorite of mine. Add the splashes of color on top, and it’s just too overwhelming a pattern for my tastes. The material is nice (it’s 89% amni nylon, 11% spandex) and has the smooth, sleek texture I was talking about above. They’re thinner leggings, so they feel like the kind of thing I’d wear on a run when I want to feel light and unfettered. But the design is so out of my wheelhouse that it definitely doesn’t justify the $88.00 price tag.
PrismSport Mobility 7/8 Legging in Nightfall, Size Large – Cost to Keep $86.00 (found here for $21.50)
The pattern on these leggings is almost as busy as the one on the last pair, but the cooler tones and abstract, somewhat floral shapes are much more my vibe than the snakeskin. These leggings are 7/8 leggings, which hit me around my ankles. (Take note that I’m only 5′ 3″, so on taller folks, they might not be quite as long.) I like the pocket in the side panel, though I’d probably only use it if I was on the treadmill at the gym/doing some kind of low-key exercise. (I’m awful about losing things or having them fall out of my pockets inadvertently, and I’m not about to risk that with housekeys on a run, etc.) The 82% polyester tricot, 18% spandex fabric is on the smooth side of the spectrum, so they’re body-hugging and give a streamlined silhouette.
Shape Active Pacesetter Capri in Caviar Black/White, Size Large – Cost to Keep $68.00
These (81% nylon, 19% spandex jersey) leggings are the most me of all the designs in the box. I really like leggings with sheer panels in them—I just think they look really cool. The white panels sweeping across the calves and thighs of this pair look really sleek, too, in my opinion. Do I still wish they were full-length rather than capris? Sure. But I definitely like the vibe more than the other pairs. I should mention that all of these pairs have had a higher waist, including this one. I appreciate that since a higher rise means less chance that leggings go sliding around on my hips.
MPG Sport Elliptical Bra 2.0 in Azure, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $48.00
This bra was probably my favorite item in the box. The bright blue color and comfy feeling of the (88% polyester, 12% spandex) fabric looks and feels just how I like it. The straps do need some arranging, but on the whole, they feel like they hug my body securely. I could see wearing this on a run, thanks to the support it gives me.
MPG Sport Valencia Hoodie 2.0 in Azure, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $60.00
This hoodie matches the bra with its blue hue. I love the thumbholes and the high neckline. Even on warm days, it can feel so cozy to be hugged inside a sweatshirt like this one after a sweaty yoga class. The 60% cotton, 40% polyester fabric is comfy but not fuzzy on the inside or anything, so it’s great for when you’re feeling cool, but not cold.
Alternative Apparel Maniac Sport Sweatshirt in Eco-Grey, Size Medium – Cost to Keep $58.00
This sweatshirt, on the other hand, has a snuggly, fleecy inside. It’s made of 50% polyester, 46% cotton, and 4% rayon and feels like the kind of thing I could wear post-workout or with some cozy shorts while I’m chilling out in front of the TV.
The Verdict: The thing to realize about Wantable is that there’s no automatic discount for buying these items via their service. If you keep 5+ items from your order, you do get 20% off, but if I only purchase, say, the sports bra I liked from this shipment, I’ll still be paying full price for it. Some items are listed as less than they’re found at retail (like the snakeskin print leggings), but everything else I received was full price. The quality is awesome and there were definitely some looks that fit my personal style (I can always update my quiz or give Wantable feedback to help them get even closer to my style in future boxes), but I didn’t feel like anything in this month’s box really wowed me enough to spend as much as I would’ve had to on them. In my case, I end up only paying the $20.00 styling fee, which would’ve otherwise gone towards any purchase I may have made. I think this service is great if you don’t have time for/don’t like shopping for fitness clothing on your own, or if you’re interested in trying new brands before you buy.
