Fabletics VIP Membership Plus Size Review + Coupon – July 2019
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).
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 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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
