3.5 overall rating
60 Ratings | 19 Reviews

Fabletics is a monthly fitness apparel subscription co-founded by Kate Hudson, which includes 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 $24.00 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).

Fabletics July 2019 Review

This month’s review does not include a standard invoice or coupons like most Fabletics’ boxes do, so onward with the review we go!

Fabletics Plus Size July 2019 - Model Wear Sports Bra With Mila Pocket Capri FrontFabletics Plus Size July 2019 - Model Wear Mila Medium Impact Sports Bra Closeup FrontFabletics Plus Size July 2019 - Model Wear Mila Medium Impact Sports Bra Back

Mila Medium Impact Sports Bra, Size 3X (Ladder Outfit Bundle) — Retail Value $44.95, VIP Price $34.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $69.95

I legit squealed when I saw this outfit. I was tempted to buy this set along with a salmon-colored leopard print ensemble similar to this, but I decided to pass. I am extra and bold, so I couldn’t resist the charms of this magical, neon goodness! I frequently make the mistake of not checking the Fabletics site on the first of the month, but I managed to remember this time around due to me leaving for my vacation. It was kismet—this outfit is too perfect! The fit is fantastic and the fabric is high quality. The compression knit fabric really holds you in well. I never feel like I am going to flop out of this bra on the treadmill. Also, it has a pocket on the back! I love this detail. If you are apprehensive and concerned that the pocket won’t hold your phone in while working out, I can assure you it will. I nearly was unable to fit my phone in, but once I did it was snug as a bug and not going anywhere no matter how much I bounced around. Aesthetically pleasing and well made—win/win!

Mila Pocket Capri, Size 3X (Ladder Outfit Bundle) — Retail Value $69.95, VIP Price $54.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $69.95

The matching Mila Pocket Capri leggings are just as impressive as the matching bra. These workout pants are made of compression fabric that securely fit. You will not chafe if you are running or jogging. I also love the yellow mesh paneling and the pockets on the side of each leg—they are incredibly convenient! Yes, this outfit has loads of pockets! This is the kind of workout ensemble that makes me feel fierce and powerful at the gym. Heck, I would even wear this out while running errands. I feel like Dawn Davenport from Female Troubles if she had stuck around for the ’80s aerobics and jazzercise trends! This might be my favorite Fabletics outfit ever—and that says a lot since I absolutely love all my pieces I own by them!

Mila Medium Impact Shine Sports Bra in Paprika, Size 3X (Phoenix Outfit Bundle) — Retail Value $34.95, VIP Price $44.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $69.95, Elite Member Free Outfit Rate $49.95

I’ve been on the hunt for a monochromatic red workout outfit for some time, so when I saw this outfit I decided to indulge and treat myself. Fabletics has a rewards program and if you hit Elite status you can redeem 2,000 points for a free outfit or $49.95 towards an outfit. I decided to apply the credit and get this entire outfit for $20! This outfit has the same style and cut as the Ladder outfit above. The bra has the trademark cell phone pocket all Mila Medium Impact bras do. I love that since this outfit is one color, I can mix and match with other leggings and tops I already own. The only negative is I was expecting the shade to be a truer blue red from pictures on the Fabletics site. The color of this piece is more of a vibrant coral. Not a deep red, but still absolutely gorgeous!

Mila Pocket Legging in Paprika, Size 3X (Phoenix Outfit Bundle) — Retail Value $74.95, VIP Price $54.95, VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $69.95, Elite Member Free Outfit Rate $49.95

Just like the ladder outfit, this set includes Mila Pocket leggings as well. I love the convenience of these pockets. I tend to put my phone in them while I am on the treadmill using my wireless headphones and put my gym key in them as well. The leggings are extremely comfortable. I am already getting a ton of wear from them—I have worn this outfit to the gym a few times already!

Verdict: I loved the Fabletics selection this month! It was exciting to have so many pieces to choose from for July. For once, I struggled on which to choose to be frugal with rather than having difficulty finding a style in my size I liked! These pieces sold out super-fast, so I hope Fabletics takes notice that us bodacious babes like fun, vibrant, wild styles that our thinner counterparts enjoy too! My grievance is typically the lack of range of styles in plus sizes, but this month was the exception. I am incredibly pleased with my outfits this month; they are absolutely stunning and fit incredibly well. They make going to the gym at the end of my workday not a task, but an exciting event!

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Unfortunately, both are sold out on the site in plus sizes. The Ladder outfit is available in sizes XXS through XXL (which is not the same as a 2X). Sign up here to nab other plus size work out gear from Fabletics.

COUPON: Get 70% off your entire order. No coupon needed - just use this link.

Value Breakdown: The Ladder and Phoenix outfits were on separate orders. The two orders ended up costing me a total of $94.90. The bundled Ladder outfit was $69.95 total, without the VIP discount it would be $114.90. The Phoenix outfit came up to $24.95 for me because I applied my Elite VIP free outfit discount or $49.95 credit to the $69.95 VIP rate and had to pay $4.95 for shipping. Without VIP discounts and my free outfit code, the Phoenix outfit would have been $119.90. Without discounts, the two outfits would have totaled to $234.80, which means I saved $139.90! That is roughly a 60% savings! That’s a heck of a deal!

I just dont get how that bra pocket is at all functional..it’s like right at the middle part of my back I can’t reach at all? how do you even use it…

wg

you look so good in that leopard girl!you can tell how confident it makes you feel!

Nicole Rieder

Awe thank you, wg! I do love that set! It is fierce!

Emily

I was super concerned about that print when I saw it, but it looks GREAT on you!! So much fun!

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Emily! Prints and bright colors can be super fun!

Toni Marie

You look Amazing.. I cant wait to try fabletics…

Nicole Rieder

Thanks, Toni Marie! You will love them! Such great quality pieces!

L

that first outfit was made for you! I love seeing your reviews and I love your beauty and confidence!

Nicole Rieder

L, awe thank you so much! That means a lot!

Am2cents

I love the first outfit on you! Oddly enough you remind me of Peggy (can’t remember if that’s her name) from Married with Children.

Ashley

How big do the sizings go? I wear about a 30/32 (waaay plus size). I want to start working out, and I want to look cute doing it, but most places have like 22/24 as their biggest size. :/

Nicole Rieder

Ashley, Fabletics goes to 3x, but I truly wish they would expand their sizing even further! It is one of my biggest grievances with them along with not having all the same pieces in plus that are in straight sizes. Definitely aim for Torrid LB since I know for a fact they offer a wider spectrum of plus sizes. 5x is definitely offered through Torrid!

AH

Ashley, I definitely suggest Torrid like Anne said. They are more youthful and have a bigger size range than anybody else. They actually have bra sized sports bras that go up to 50DD or DDD.

Anne

Torrid has great activewear (really good supportive sports bras) as does Lane Bryant! Torrid goes to size 30 but their sizing is very generous. I’m not sure Lane Bryant’s active line goes above 28, but I sized up for active leggings at LB because I was worried about the fit in the hips and they were very much too big, so you would possibly be okay in a 28.
Or just stick to Torrid, because they don’t arbitrarily not carry their largest two sizes in a bunch of clothes like Lane Bryant does!

Fullbeauty also has some active options, but I’m not sure they have the high impact (and cute) stuff Torrid does.

Marie

They only go up to a 3X (size 22/24). Have you checked out womanwithin.com they carry up to a size 40 and have some cute clothes. They carry leggings and t-shirts.
