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:

Fabletics Plus Size November 2020 Review
The first coupon I received was a $90 gift card from HelloFresh meal kit service! This is a fantastic option to use during quarantine to avoid hitting up the market. Check out our in-depth reviews for HelloFresh here!
I also received a sample of Bigelow Botanicals tea! Strawberry Lemon Orange Blossom sounds so heavenly – like summer in a glass! The back also includes a .55¢ coupon off a box – I might have to try that watermelon cucumber mint as well! Yum! Ok, on to this month's items...
Generally, I am not a fan of tie-dye or acid-washed prints – but I fell in love with this set! I wanted it so badly that I put myself on the waitlist and then ordered it, not realizing I ordered it twice. Thank goodness Fabletics customer support was so helpful in issuing me a return label – it was pretty effortless!
Let's get back to me fangirling over this sports bra, though, shall we? The twist front style has easily become my second favorite sports bra next to my go-to: the High Impact style. I actually reviewed the black version of this bra back in August. Since then, the bra has become one I love to wear not only when I am active, but on an everyday basis. TMI, but working from home for both jobs, I rarely wear bras. 2020: the Lost Bra year. I want to eventually get this bra in every color so I can wear them on the regular.
In the spirit of this topsy turvy year, I decided to take a chance on this print – no regrets. I love the variations of blues and whites in this set; I feel like I am a walking cloud! Most importantly though, I feel well supported and comfortable in this bra. It truly feels like I am being gently hugged! I love the cutout and twist detail on this sports bra too. I just could gush on and on about how much I love this bra, as you can see! I also like that I could easily wear this with black leggings and an off-the-shoulder sweatshirt to go to the grocery store as well! We STAN a versatile piece, right?
If you thought I was smitten with the sports bra, well I am equally keen on the matching leggings!
These leggings are buttery soft, but with ample stretch. They are so incredibly comfortable and I feel well held in by the true high waisted style. Plus, how cute is that twist detail on the calf? It is such an adorable peek-a-boo detail that really makes these leggings stand out. I would feel as confident working out in these at the gym (let's face it, in my bedroom since I am quarantining) or out on an essentials run for groceries!
Verdict: Holy smokes, Fabletics nailed it once again with this affordable, yet high-quality activewear ensemble! I am surprised by how much I love this style – I want this outfit in every color available. I am not exaggerating! I can't get over how comfortable and how well made this set is. 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 exclusive promos to their members. They have different levels for VIP as well that offer exclusive outfits and items, too. I am always the first to tell my friends to sign up with Fabletics – you just can't beat the quality for the price!
This set, unlike the gorgeous set I reviewed last month, does go up to a 4x. My one single frustration with Fabletics is that, while they have expanded their size range to go up to a 4x, it's not reflective in all areas of the site. I truly hope they work to normalize bigger bodies by offering the full range of their pieces in sizes 5x & 6x down the line. Us bodacious babes love a fantastic activewear set too!
I am not sure how anything can top this November set, but I am excited to see the December selections, aren't you?
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Unfortunately, this set is sold out! However, the bra and leggings come in a variety of different colors on the site! Sign up here to nab this and other plus-size workout gear from Fabletics.
Value Breakdown: The Oasis Outfit retails for $124.90 with a VIP bundle rate of $59.95. That means I saved a grand total of $64.95 which is roughly a 55% savings! What a phenomenal value!
