Fabletics Plus Size October 2018 - Box 0001

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 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.

This Hello Fresh coupon was also included in my order. Every time I get one of these coupons I am tempted due to our reviews for Hello Fresh!

A sample for Chanel’s Perfection Lumiere Velvet Smoot- Effect Make Up was included in this month’s order. I love trying new cosmetics, so I appreciate this being included!

Finally, Fabletics included this coupon for Greens Superfood Powder! This powder can be added to food to deliver more vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than 4 servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. Their site also states it promotes higher energy levels, body detoxification, healthy, aging, and immune function. I am intrigued for sure! Especially due to higher energy levels and healthy aging!

Zoe High Impact Sports Bra Size 3x—Retail Value $64.95, VIP Price $49.95

For October, I got an email indicating that I qualified for $30 off an order! I was so pleased because I immediately knew I needed to get this leopard print sports bra and matching leggings! Normally, I do not go for purple, but when leopard print is in the mix that changes everything! I especially had to try this outfit due to the amazing High Impact bra! In my September Fabletics review, I wrote about the High Impact bra in a blush shade. I was so impressed with this bra that I knew this leopard print style was vital! I love how much support and comfort this bra provides! It may be my favorite of the many sports bras I have from Fabletics! I love that I can mix this piece up with my black leggings from Fabletics as well for additional workout ensembles!

Highwaisted Powerhold Leggings Size 3x—Retail Value $84.95, VIP $54.95

I still am surprised that Fabletics didn’t offer the leggings and sports bra as an outfit combo, but alas, I was going to make them mine no matter what! I love the high waist on these leggings and the stretchy, slight compression fit is superb. I have come to expect well-made pieces from Fabletics and they rarely disappoint! I know I will get a ton of wear from these leggings at the gym, but I can envision wearing these on trips with a black turtleneck, pink beret, biker jacket, and my western boots because let’s face it—that’s how I roll! These will become an asset in your workout, lounge, and errand running routines!

Verdict: My love for Fabletics is still going strong! This set is perfect due to the sultry leopard print, but also because they meet the high standard in quality I have come to love and expect from Fabletics. My only complaint consistently remains the same: the selection for plus size items. I am glad that Fabletics branched out into plus size options, but I am eager to find a full range where I can get the same styles my thinner peers can. My wallet is as thick as my hips, Fabletics! If you make it, us bodacious babes will buy it!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? The sports bra is still available, but the leggings are unfortunately no longer available. Sign up here to nab the sports bra, or browse other styles and outfits.

Coupon: For a limited time, new VIP members can use this link to get 2 pairs of leggings for $24 (a $99 value)

Value Breakdown: This outfit cost me $77.65+ free shipping. The price previous to the $30 off credit was $104.90 (without tax) and the non-VIP price is $149.90, which means I saved a total from the non-VIP price of $72.25. That is roughly 49% off in savings! What a deal!

  1. You are looking great Nicole! Thanks for proving that sportswear is both functional as well as fashionable!

  2. I have a question about the bra, Nicole: are those ventilation strips functional or strictly decorative? I’d like the bra to provide ventilation if I’m going to end up with crosshatching marks on my breasts ( although that could be an interesting look too…)
