3.5 overall rating

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).

About Fabletics

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 Plus Size “Breakthrough Outfit” Review

 

This month’s delivery didn’t include the typical order invoice, but I did receive this coupon for HelloFresh! HelloFresh is a weekly meal delivery subscription that sends healthy recipes and the pre-measured ingredients you need to make them at home. Marne can tell you all about it in this review! The coupon I received is for $80 off– not too shabby, right?

 

Ella High Impact Sports Bra in Black/Black Shine (Breakthrough 2 Piece Outfit), Size 3x — Retail Value $59.95, VIP Price $44.95 (VIP Outfit Bundle Retail Value $129.90, VIP Price $49.95)

I love getting a bundled outfit from Fabletics, it is such a fantastic value! The one frustration I have found in the past is the set outfits and their inability to mix and match. Imagine how happy I was to find that I could select whichever color bra I preferred for this one! I opted for black– I love it against the grey leggings; so classic and neutral. A black sports bra like this is incredibly adaptable too; I can wear this bra with any pair of leggings and get a variety of different outfits! The High Impact bras are my favorite too since they provide ample support. This bra always passes the test of using the elliptical at the gym– I always feel comfortable and secure. Stylish, well made, and easy to wear– you can’t go wrong!

 

High Waisted Powerhold 7/8 Leggings in Grey Heather (Breakthrough 2 Piece Outfit), Size 3x — Retail Value $59.95, VIP Price $44.95 (VIP Outfit Bundle Retail Value $129.90, VIP Price $49.95)

Who would think a pair of heather grey leggings could be this great? I mean, when it comes to Fabletics, it is a given, really. Their high waisted Powerhold leggings are my favorite, only topped by their EXTRA high waisted Powerhold style. The fabric has ample stretch and is incredibly soft. They feel nice on and give just the right amount of compression. The high waist ensures I don’t have to worry about pulling my leggings up to cover my belly or rump while exercising at the gym. I also love wearing these leggings out and about running errands. Pair with an oversized sweater and sneakers and you are set to go grocery shopping for your second workout of the day!

Verdict: Fabletics continues to be my tried and true when it comes to activewear. My only gripe typically is that they stop at a 3x in plus sizes, but guess what my babes– they now offer through a size 4x! This is a big deal! I feel like they heard us! I still hope they eventually offer up to a 5x, but this is huge progress. I have also noticed they are working on broadening their selections in the plus section as well. I have especially noticed this in the last few months. It makes me that much more proud to endorse and suggest Fabletics to my friends! This month’s box was a great example of this: being able to be able to select the bra color you prefer instead of a set outfit is fantastic! Keep up the great work, Fabletics. Your dedication to improving your products and being more inclusive is being noticed! 

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, and in most of the plus sizes, too! The leggings are available in 1x-4x, but the sports bra is only available in 3x and 4x for the plus sizes.  Sign up here to nab other plus size workout gear from Fabletics.

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

Value Breakdown: The Breakthrough outfit retails for $129.90 with a VIP bundle rate of $49.95.  That means I saved a total of $80 which is roughly a 62% savings! That’s an awesome value!

Hi Nicole! How do you think the Fabletics leggings would work for flying?

Nicole Rieder

I especially like them since they provide compression and I tend to swell a bit flying.

Claudia

Yay, I was hoping to hear this! Thank you!

Nicole Rieder

Claudia, I love them for flying. I wear them while I travel all the time.

Tiffany Pree

I need something like this. Don’t think I would pay the $50 a month though. I’m a bike rider, I bike daily about 15 miles as my exercise. Need more workout clothes pretty badly, probably be best to actually buy bike rider gear. But, meh. Lol

This sub seems like its got good clothing overall. Maybe ill try it for 3 months.

Ill check out their site.

Nicole Rieder

Yeah, Tiffany, you can have a membership and skip it you don’t want to get anything that month. You just need to make sure you skip it by the 5th of the month or the credit will be taken out of your card/checking account.

PudgeKat

You can skip easily or use your credit toward sales.
