Looking for Fabletics reviews and wondering if you should sign up? Is the workout apparel subscription service worth your hard-earned cash? In a word, yes. Here’s my Fabletics review blog post telling you why.
What is Fabletics?
Fabletics, a joint venture between actress Kate Hudson and JustFab, is a monthly subscription activewear site that makes looking good in the gym affordable. Their site reads: “Fabletics apparel focuses on fit, function and style, offering complete, coordinated Outfits for your workout and beyond.” All of the pieces are Fabletics’ own brand and outfits consist of sports bras, tanks, long and short sleeve tees, shorts, leggings, capris and more.
How does it work?
You sign up with your email address, fill out a questionnaire about your favorite pieces to wear, your body type, etc. and are shown a bunch of outfit options that match your tastes. You then choose whether to buy or pass each month and get this — your first outfit is 50% off with my link. By signing up you also have access to VIP pricing going forward. There’s no membership fee or anything additional to pay to have access to the VIP pricing.
After your first purchase, you have the option on the 1st of each month to either 1) buy one of the outfits recommended for you via email on the 1st, 2) buy something else on the site 3) buy nothing at all.
If you choose to buy nothing, just pass by the 5th of the month, and you’re not charged. If you do choose to buy an outfit, you pay $49.99 or a slight bit more depending on what you choose and that usually includes two or three items.
Also, shipping and returns are free. The site says there’s no cancellation fee if you’re looking to cancel the service and you can do so at any time by contacting Fabletics by mail or phone.
Right now you can use my Fabletics link here to get your first order at 50% off (at US$25ish for the WHOLE outfit) which makes it ridiculously affordable.
Are Fabletics pieces just as high-quality as high-end brands?
Yes and no. I have several outfits from Fabletics and I feel for the price, Fabletics has far surpassed my expectations. That said, not every single piece has had me raving and the fit isn’t always 100% — but then again I didn’t pay a premium price. Overall, I find the quality of Fabletics clothes to be great. Pants are thick enough so that there’s no show through and the materials used are soft and functional. The clothes are designed to be trendy and fashionable and I truly enjoy having the option to buy Fabletics clothes at VIP prices each month.
Biggest misconceptions about Fabletics
1. That you’re required to purchase something every month.
No, this is NOT the case! You have the option to pass every single month if you choose and are under no obligation to buy anything at all. But do be aware that if you forget to pass the month (a single click on their site and that’s all you have to do to pass, easy!) you will be automatically charged. Then that outfit credit remains in your account. But if you don’t want to deal with being charged by accident, just pay attention to your email each month or put an alert on your phone to pass by the 5th and you won’t have any problems.
2. That you are under contract for a certain amount of time.
Nope, not true either. You can cancel whenever you feel like it by contacting Fabletics’ customer service department. You aren’t under any obligation to buy a certain number of outfits or stay a member for any amount of time.
So is Fabletics worth it? Definitely! What’s your experience been?
