Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + Coupon – September 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 September 2018 Review
This month’s box did not include a copy of the invoice statement as it typically does.
Graze is a healthy mini- snack subscription box that sends a customized selection of goodies weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly! Fabletics included a coupon to try Graze out for free! Very enticing! Check out our Graze box reviews to learn more.
Cobie Medium Impact Sports Bra Size 2x—Retail Value $44.95, VIP Price $34.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $59.95
I got a solid black workout ensemble in my July Fabletics box, but I couldn’t resist the floral netted mesh on this set! I decided to go down to a 2x this time around to see if the fit was a bit better—and it was an improvement! Definitely feels more secure. I feel like I finally have an understanding of what bra size I need from Fabletics: medium impact bras I need in a 2x and the high impact are best in a 3x. I just prefer the extra support and comfort I get from each in the different sizes. I am excited to try out my new bra at the gym to see how this wears when I am on the treadmill and elliptical.
Salar Mesh Powerhold Legging Size 3x—Retail Value $84.95, VIP Price $54.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $59.95
I absolutely adore the mesh detail on these leggings and how it wraps around the legs in the back. I also love that this pair has a pocket my cell phone can fit in—how convenient! These leggings provide the comfort, great fit, and quality I expect from Fabletics. I will be traveling this weekend and I know these pants will come in handy while flying, especially due to the pockets! I can slip my phone in there while I am trying to dig in my bag to grab boarding passes.
Verdict: The selections this month on Fabletics were fantastic! I love this set and am excited to see more legging with the mesh inserts and pockets in my size being available. I appreciate also that this set is so comfortable, yet immensely stylish. My only real complaint about Fabletics is the same as always: I want to see pieces universally across the board be available in straight and plus sizes. That doesn’t mean I don’t give them props or recognize the broad selection they already offer in plus sizes, but I am eager to see ALL the same styles available from size xs to 3x. Us bodacious babes are active and have thick wallets—if you make it we will buy it! I hope they even consider going up to sizes like 5x to cater to even more people seeking quality plus size activewear! Otherwise, I am consistently pleased with the excellence and great construction of the pieces Fabletics offers!
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The sports bra is still available, but the leggings are no longer available in sizes 1x-3x! Sign up here to nab the sports bra and similar pieces!
Value Breakdown: This outfit cost me $79.99+ free shipping. The original, non-VIP price is $109.99, which means I saved $30 or nearly 30% off.
