The Wantable Fitness Edit Subscription Box Review – May 2019
The Wantable Fitness Edit is a fitness styling subscription service similar to Stitch Fix. When you sign up, you’ll fill out an in-depth survey about your fitness clothing preferences, and a stylist will pick out items to match your sizing, style, and needs.
The Wantable Fitness Edit costs $20 a month, but that fee goes toward any items you choose to keep. If you keep five or more items, you’ll also get a 20% discount.

Wantable Fitness Edit May 2019 Review
Wantable always includes a pre-paid return envelope, as well as some info sheets, in your package.
Inside the box, I received a booklet listing out the items I received, 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. When I took the Wantable style quiz, I noted the types of clothes 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.).
I really like this bra. It feels really feminine and has some nice practical details, such as removable cups and mesh details in the front and back. It fit well, though I don’t think it’s the best for anything high impact. It seems to work well for most other workouts.
Shape Active Getaway Crop Sweatshirt in Black Heather – Cost to Keep $88.00 (Found here for $74.00)
Shape Active calls this hoodie a “crop” sweatshirt, but it fit quite normally on me, even though I’m tall. Also, it has thumbholes! While this piece was really soft and cozy, I didn’t feel like the design was all that flattering on me.
Colosseum Allure Capri in Black – Cost to Keep $59.00
These may just be basic black capris, but they’re done so right. The material is thin enough to be super stretchy and breathable, but it’s not see-through at all. These leggings also have pockets! I don’t think I actually have any basic black capris, so I kept these.
Alternative Apparel Slouchy Striped Eco-Jersey Pullover – Cost to Keep $48.00
This shirt fits perfect and is really comfy. It’s perfect for lounging at home, running errands, or anything really. The fabric is nice and breathable, too. I kept this one.
Good Hyouman Aguilera Tee in Black Sand It’s All Good – Cost to Keep $45.00
I like this brand a lot; I’ve received a lot of things from them in past boxes. This sleeveless tee is super soft and quite stretchy. The fabric is breathable and very comfortable. Unfortunately, I sent this back because of the oversized arm holes, which I don’t personally care for.
Shape Active Bungee Jump Capri in Black – Cost to Keep $74.00
These capris feature mesh panels on the sides topped by an elastic, lace-up design. I really like that you can adjust the tightness of the elastic at the hem. These are comfortable, feel very moisture-wicking, and I think they’d work well for any workout.
Alternative Apparel Zen Vintage Wrap in Agave Green – Cost to Keep $58.00
Because this cardigan is designed to be a little oversized, I wish I would have sized down. I checked the option to do a size exchange at checkout, but the cardigan was out of stock in other sizes. So I ended up keeping this one! I love the color, and the material is lightweight and nice to have to throw on after the gym or just to have for summer. It may be a bit bulky, but it’s already gotten a good amount of wear.
The Verdict: This month’s Wantable Fitness Edit was pretty good! There was nothing I was disappointed with or that felt way off from my style, so I’m happy with the selections my stylist made. FYI, Wantable doesn’t have an automatic discount for buying these items through their service. If you keep five or more items from your order, you do get 20% off. Some items are listed as less than they’d be at retail, but for the most part, the items I’m sent are listed at full price. There’s an item that I found for cheaper on its brand’s website, but my past experience with Wantable has been that they will price match if the brand itself 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 $426. If I kept five or more items, I would also receive the 20% off discount ($85.20) and my styling fee ($20) means I’d pay $320.80 for all of the pieces they sent this month. That’s a discount of about 25%.
