Wantable Fitness August 2018 Review
Inside the box, I received a booklet listing out the items I got, plus a note from my stylist for the month. (Note that your stylist does change from month to month, unlike with other services where you grow a relationship with one stylist.)
I also got a card about their exchange policy.
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.).
GLYDER Define Bra Exclusive Black/White – Retail Value $58.00
I really like the design and fabric of this bra! It’s comfortable and the stripes are cute and would go with any workout tops I own. The solid black around the neckline is actually a second layer, making a pocket for a key or card or something. I had to send this back, though, because it just doesn’t have enough coverage for me. I felt like I was spilling out the sides, and I need something that will hold me in place better during intense workouts.
This is a great tank! I like that the top is fuller-coverage design but has mesh panels for style and breathability! The back is really cool, too, with a mesh upper panel, narrowing into a thin mesh panel along the back, with a lace-up-looking detail. I think this is a little edgy, stylish, flattering, and comfortable to wear! I also like how it could show off a colorful bra or a bra with a strappy back without having to be really open.
GLYDER Diverse Leggings in Black/Shark – Retail Value $76
I like the idea of mesh panels in leggings, but I just don’t love the way these are designed. Mostly I don’t love 1) the design being the shape it is, and right on my outer thighs, and 2) the way the mesh fabric is lighter than the black leggings. I think these two factors work together to just emphasize a part of my body I don’t prefer to emphasize. The leggings fit nice, though, and I could tell they were great quality.
SPLITS59 Rocket Tank in Black/Grey Multi Stripes – Retail Value $54
This tank was fine, but it didn’t wow me with the quality. It was a lighter weight knit that fit well and was breathable, but I didn’t feel like I could really justify the price when I thought I could get something of equal quality at Target or Old Navy.
Electric & Rose Sunset Legging in Aquarius/Lagoon Chevron Wash – Retail Value $88
These leggings were my favorite in this edit! They are a breathable, cotton-like knit that feels like nothing on. They’re lightweight enough to be breathable yet thick enough to have some substance. I love the high waist that can be folded over, and I can definitely see myself doing a variety of workouts in these.
GLYDER Lace-Up Long Sleeve in Black – Retail Value $64
This lace-up top is so soft and comfortable! I can see it being perfect to wear into the gym when the weather gets a little cooler. I would love a top like this, but I just don’t love curved-hems. They feel apron-y to me?
Free People Movement Infinity Legging Charcoal/Black – Retail Value $88
Free People is a great brand, and these leggings are great! They’re extra stretchy, comfortable, flattering, and I dig the keyhole detailing at the end of the legs. I may request these in a size down in my next edit – these either ran big or were just extra stretchy material.
The Verdict: Wantable doesn’t have an automatic discount for buying these items through their service. If you keep 5+ items from your order, you do get 20% off, but if I only purchase, say, the leggings, I’ll still be paying full price for it. Some items are listed as less than they’re found at retail, but everything else I received was full price. The quality of the pieces were great except for the one tank top, and the fit was great throughout considering this was my first shipment from them. I kept the Electric & Rose Sunset Leggings and the TLF Apparel Segment Tank.
