Wantable Fitness February 2019 Review
Wantable always sends a pre-paid return envelope, as well as some info sheets.
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.)
Here’s my packing sheet. I also got a note from my stylist this month. 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.).
Good Hyouman Jules Open Back Pullover in Rosewood “We Get What We Give” – Cost to Keep: $69
I’ve been sent this open back pullover by Good Hyouman a couple times before in other colors, and I’ve kept a purple-ish grey one! I like this red color, too. I don’t have much red in my wardrobe so I might have to keep this one!
Z Supply Tie Dye Loft Hoodie Pullover in Black – Cost to Keep: $64
Z Supply Tie Dye Loft Jogger in Black – Cost to Keep: $59
I don’t usually go for tie-dye, but I requested these joggers from the Wantable Stream and my stylist picked the matching hoodie for me, too. Would you believe I have never owned a matching hoodie + sweatpants combo? That may need to change – this set is so comfortable! They’re definitely bulkier than I usually wear but they are very warm and would be perfect for chilling at home.
Interval Graphic Tank, “Life is Sweat” in Red – Cost to Keep: $39
This tank is a miss for me. It has two things that I really don’t like in a top: oversized armholes and a curved hem. Curved hems look so cute on everyone else but on me, I feel they just emphasize my hips in a weird way and make me look bottom-heavy. The tank was comfortable, though.
Colosseum Waverly Hoodie in Black – Cost to Keep: $39
This hoodie isn’t a winner, either. It seems to be weird proportions for my body shape – too short for how wide it is? And the long, flowy short sleeves hit my shoulders odd and look slouchy in a way that just isn’t my style.
Electric & Rose Sunset Legging in Rebel/Lady Chevron Wash – Cost to Keep: $88
I love these leggings! I kept an identical-but-teal pair in one of my first boxes. They don’t look like they’d fit out of the box, but they are super stretchy. They’re also very soft and breathable because they’re made out of 90% cotton (and 10% spandex). They don’t ride down, and they have a nice high waist that you could also fold over if you wanted. These are some of my favorite leggings I own because of how comfortable they are.
Wear It To Heart Multi Strap Back Mesh Bra in Black – Cost to Keep: $39
I like this bra – the mesh panel in the back is cool and the straps, though they’re thin individually, the support is actually pretty good. The only reason it isn’t a keeper is that it’s too low on the side. I don’t really feel very secure, and I’d be worried that the wrong HIIT circuit could have a very awkward result if I were wearing this bra.
The Verdict: This month’s Wantable Fitness Edit was a little middle-of-the-road. I’ve had some really great Fitness Edits, and I had some good pieces this month, but a handful of items just weren’t flattering on me, especially the red tank and black hooded top. The bra just didn’t fit me the way I needed it to, and the hoodie/jogger set felt bulky but very comfortable so I’m still on the fence about it, as well as the red open-back sweatshirt. I definitely kept the leggings though! I’ll have to include a note to my stylist to send me these in as many colors as they have. I’m happy with the quality of everything they sent this month.
FYI, 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. Some items are listed as less than they’re found at retail, but for the most part, the items I’m sent are listed at full price. There’s an item that’s cheaper on the brand’s website than from my Wantable box, but my past experience with Wantable has been that they will price match if the brand has it marked down.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Wantable curates its boxes based on each individual’s preferences as well as what’s available.

Value Breakdown: This box cost $20.00 with free shipping, which goes towards your purchase. The total merchandise value of the items inside was $397.00. If I kept 5+ items, I would also receive the 20% off discount ($79.40) and my styling fee ($20) means I’d pay $297.60 for all of the pieces they sent this month. That’s a discount of about 25%.
