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 cost is $49.95 a month, which goes towards the cost of the outfits curated for you. Outfit cost varies, but you’ll only be charged for what you choose to actually buy.
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.
My Subscription Addiction paid for this box. (Check out our editorial guidelines to learn more about how we review boxes).
Fabletics Plus Size Crossbody Bag & Sports Bra Review
I will be reviewing the 2in1 Crossbody in Aloe and Kessler Medium Impact Sports Bra III in Porter Daisy/Multi.
2in1 Crossbody in Aloe, Retail Value $34.95 (VIP Price $24.95)
I wanted to go a different route than reviewing an entire outfit for yinz this month. This crossbody bag caught my eye because of the color and its uniqueness! When I would go for walks with my cousin during the first summer of the pandemic, I would often take my hefty fanny pack to hold masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, headphones, phone, money, etc. It could be a bit cumbersome at instances. When I saw this particular bag I was taken with the cool design and its versatility! I love that I can use this as a crossbody or a belly bag! I can use this whether I am going to the gym or an amusement park, traveling, or just going on a walk around the neighborhood. I also love the smaller attached bag-- that could make a good place to hold coins, earbuds, etc. I can easily fit my phone, cash, sanitizer, masks, and some other bits in the main bag. It will match both of my workout ensembles from my last two reviews too-- perfect!
Kessler Medium-Impact Sports Bra III in Porter Daisy/Multi, Retail Value $64.95 (VIP Price $49.95)
I am a total sucker for retro/cartoon-like floral designs; this sports bra immediately called out to me! I would have loved to find the matching leggings for this bra as well, but I apparently was a bit late to the party for those cuties. The bra has a lot of support-- don't be deceived by the intricate straps in the back. they aren't simply for aesthetics.
Even though I didn't get the leggings previously mentioned, I know I will be able to mix and match this sports bra with existing activewear, but I wanted to style this how I might wear this piece on a night out instead. I chose to wear the sports bra with a Target x Victor Glemaud fall collection skirt (it is sold out on their site, so I suggest trying to find it on ebay and Poshmark), white studded mules, Kerrin style glasses in green from Wherelight, Jennifer's Body earrings from Gal Spiffy. I loved wearing it with various patterns and shades of pinks and greens. I think the ensemble came together well. One can complete this with a cardigan or a faux leather biker jacket for a touch of tough. We STAN a versatile piece of activewear!
This month's Fabletics pieces were a nice breath of fresh air. I focus on showing you all different outfits, but I enjoyed the challenge of showing you separates. I am incredibly pleased with the box pieces, but especially the cross-body bag! Talk about a versatile item-- and such a value! I was pleased that it fit my waist as well with room to spare as a fanny pack! I know other bodacious babes that read this will be excited to see this too! I hope to see Fabletics ensure that their accessories and clothing pieces are inclusive and fit a range of differently sized and shaped bodies. I was pleased that they branched out to offering 4x options-- but that should just be the beginning. Not only should Fabletics provide every piece in a 4x, but they need to branch out to even a 6x. They are a brand I am proud to review because they are constantly making changes and advancements to accommodate their customers. I have seen them over the last four years broaden their selections in terms of styles and sizes--- and I only see it getting better. I appreciate that they update their shop with new items every Thursday, offer phenomenal incentives and sales, but I hope to someday see 4x not be their highest size, but 6x or higher. I will be the one to keep the pep rally going, Fabletics! You provide some of the best quality in activewear and I stand by your product completely-- you just need to make it available for all! You got this! Are you as amped as I am about Fabletics? Are you excited to see what I get next month too?

To Wrap Up
Value Breakdown: The 2in1 Crossbody bag and the Kessler Medium-Impact Sports Bra III retails for $99.90 together, but after the VIP discount and a $5 coupon, I managed to only spend $69.90! That means I saved a total of $30.00 which is roughly a 30% savings! Not too shabby!
