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 cart or skip it. Subscriptions can be canceled at any time, though you do have to call Fabletics customer service to do so.

FYI, COVID-19 Update: 

Ready, Set, Ship: Our shipping times are now 100% back to normal & select retail stores have reopened, but health & safety is still our top priority. Read more here.

Fabletics Plus Size October 2020 Review

This month’s box did not include a paper invoice or any coupons/ads. So, onto the review, we go!

 

Oaklyn Reflective SculptKnit Bra in Black/Reflective Silver (Unstoppable Outfit Set), Size 3x — Retail Value $64.95, VIP Price $38.95 (VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $144.90, VIP Price $69.95)

I try to avoid getting solid black workout ensembles since I already have so many in my collection. I allowed myself this set because of the silver reflective design that’s on both on the sports bra and leggings. They are stylish and chic, but also safe for late-night walks! This SculptKnit material is wild, I tell ya! I was concerned that it wouldn’t have any give or stretch, but I was wrong! the pieces looked smaller than a 3x, but once I got the outfit on I was impressed by how secure and comfortable I felt. The material is stretchy, yet structured and I feel well supported. I also love that since this set is in black, I can easily mix and match with other Fabletics pieces I own! The options are truly endless!

 

High-Waisted SculptKnit Reflective Legging in Black/Reflective Silver (Unstoppable Outfit Set), Size 3x — Retail Value $79.95, VIP Price $54.95 (VIP Outfit Bundle Rate $144.90, VIP Price $69.95)

Much like the bra, I was uncertain of how these leggings would fit. I am beyond impressed by how much stretch – and structure – they provide. The leggings are truly high-waisted and fit perfectly. I also love the reflective detail on the sides of the legs. Even if my sports bra is covered during colder weather, folks will certainly see my legs while I am walking. These will make a great addition to the ensembles I wear to the grocery store and on the limited number of errands I make.

Verdict: Fabletics nailed it again with this affordable, yet high-quality activewear ensemble! I can’t get over how comfortable and how well made this set is! I love the variety of prints and styles they offer, especially with the ability to mix and match with sports bras to get the ideal fit. Not only am I consistently impressed by the quality of their pieces, but Fabletics often holds a variety of sales throughout the year (especially during holidays) and offers promos to their members! I am constantly suggesting them to friends and family asking about workout clothing too!

I was concerned when I saw that the size range on this particular set only goes up to a 3x. I would hate to see Fabletics take a step backward in their size-inclusive options. I did, however, check the site and Fabletics is still offering 4x in most of their range – what a relief! My one consistent grievance is that, while they do offer a larger size range, it’s not reflective in all areas of the site, like this particular outfit for instance. I truly hope they work to normalize bigger bodies by offering the full range of their pieces in sizes 5x & 6x down the line. It is like Field of Dreams, if you build it Fabletics, us bodacious babes will come! Plus-size girls are active and like to work out, too!

I thought October’s set was fantastic, but I am excited to see the November selections, aren’t you?

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Yes, this set is still available. Sign up here to nab this and other plus-size workout gear from Fabletics.

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

Value Breakdown: The Unstoppable Outfit retails for $144.90 with a VIP bundle rate of $69.95.  That means I saved a grand total of $74.95 which is roughly a 55% savings! What an amazing value!

Hi. So I’ve got a few questions about this sub box. When you pay $49.95 monthly and then go in and shop, what happens if your choices are over that amount. Like you Oct. 2020 set was $69.95? did you have to pay the extra $20?

Also, all plus sized girls know that all clothing vendors don’t uniformal have the same sizes even if they all say 3X or $x. some are smaller 3
x’s and some are larger. Do these items run small or larger, do you think?

This sounds like a great box and what i’ve been looking for. So I’m hoping for the best on these questions…lol. I do like that you can skip months if you need to.

Hello Karla! These are good questions. To answer the first, you pay the difference. So, you would pay the $20 and your monthly sub fee.

Tbh, I haven’t seen a whole lot of variations with the leggings and such. You will see on there that there are Powerhold styles and they come in different lengths and it will also state if it is a higher waist as well. This style was a bit different due to the SculptKnit– the fabric was different than what I get in a lot of the other styles. I find that they are pretty true to size. I am roughly a 22 in the bottoms and even with weight fluctuations, the 3x have fit me when I was closer to a 20 even! The leggings especially have loads of stretch, but are also compression style. They have stretch, but feel structured, if that makes sense? They also have different style sports bras that give a personalized fit for each style. I love the high impact styles best myself.

It is worth a go because like you said you can also skip, they have tons of sales, and different status on the VIP allow you access to different pieces. Their sales make it totally worth it, especially considering how well made the pieces are.

I hope all of that helps you!
