Living in leggings and workout clothes like I do? Check out what it was like for me to get a Fabletics VIP membership!
I’m sure you’ve all seen the ads all over social media for Fabletics. It seems like every time I go on social media I see a celebrity or the average person promoting their love for Kate Hudson’s athletic wear brand. All the advertising of cute leggings and sportswear and a promotion for 50% your first order when you become a VIP member finally got me to cave and try it out for myself!
Fabletics claims to “…create clothing that inspires you to stay active, whether that means competing in an iron(wo)man competition, sweating in the studio, or chasing after your kids. Our on-trend designs are high in quality at prices you’ll feel good about. This is where the inspiration starts. Beyond the clothing, we foster a community of people who embrace our mantra – “Live Your Passion” – every day.” Their goal is to provide stylish and high quality gear at an accessible price point.
How I became a VIP Member…
Getting signed up was super easy! I simply went to https://www.fabletics.com/get-started and began by taking their short lifestyle quiz about how and wear I like to work out and my style and size preferences, and created a login. Once you sign up to be a member you get various perks from personalized picks based on your style preferences and qualify for up to 50% off all the time, early access to new launches, cash rewards, free gear, and more. The only stipulations are that you must shop or skip by the 5th of each month or you will be charged $49.95 that is added to your account as a credit for you to use on your next order and you can cancel any time.
My First Order…
After taking the quick quiz and signing up I started shopping around for my first discounted order as a VIP member! I ended up ordering 2 pairs of leggings, a cropped tank, and a cropped sweatshirt. I received the 2 leggings for $24 and 50% off all the other items in my order for a total savings of $160, a nearly 68% savings on my total!
Here are the items I ordered:
My Honest Review…
One of the items that has been on my wardrobe essential list has been a cropped sweatshirt but I haven’t found any affordable options until now! The Eco-Conscious Crop Terry Pullover in black is by far my favorite purchase of this order. The material is incredibly soft, is comfortable and stretchy, and the fit is flattering. This is exactly what I was searching for and I am so happy I purchased it! The retail price is $79.95, VIP price is $69.95, and I received 50% off the VIP price on it so it was really affordable and feels like it’s high quality make and fabric. I love it so much that I actually ordered a similar one in grey!
Features advertised include: made with recycled materials, relaxed fit.
The second top I ordered was the Gia Cropped Seamless Tank in white. I absolutely love the material of this top! It’s incredibly soft, lightweight, and comfortable which makes it perfect for working out, especially in this summer heat since most gyms are still closed. The cut of the top hits at the right length on my waist and the cut of the arms is flattering for my shoulders and arms. At $39.95 retail price, $29.95 VIP price, and 50% off of VIP because of my promo it was a great deal!
Features advertised include: all-way stretch, , breathable, moisture-wicking.
As part of the promo I received when signing up as a first-time VIP member, I was eligible for 2 leggings for $24! This deal is what really sold me on trying out VIP membership. $12 each for leggings is a really good deal, especially if they are as high quality as the brand claims.
The first pair of leggings I chose were the Trinity High-Waisted Utility Legging in safari green. I chose this pair because I absolutely LOVE leggings with pockets and this pair has multiple pocket options! There is a deep mesh pocket on the right side that fits my iPhone X, a zipper pocket on the left that also fits my phone, and a zippered back waistband pocket that can fit small items like a credit card or key. I was very happy with the soft, thick, flexible fabric and the quality of the stitching. The fit was a bit tight, but true to size overall and a flattering, sculpting cut that passed the squat test. The one negative I have would be that the zippers on the ankles were a bit uncomfortable to leave zipped down all day because they pressed into my skin. Regularly $89.95 retail price, $69.95 VIP price, and only $12 for my first time member deal, I would definitely recommend these leggings for the quality and price!
Features advertised include: external pocket, all-way stretch, chafe-resistant, moisture-wicking, zip pockets.
The second pair of leggings I chose was the Anywhere High-Waisted Moto 7/8 in Aegean. I love the color of this pair and the detail of the various fabric patches. There is a double pocket on each side that fits my phone and other small items and the fabric is again very soft and high quality feeling! The fit is similar to the other pair of leggings I bought, a bit tight but overall true to size. Both are part of Fabletics’ Motion365 fabric range. The range of motion and breath-ability of the fabric is great as advertised and passes the squat test! At $94.95 retail price, $64.95 VIP price, and only $12 with my first time VIP member deal it was a steal for these leggings!
Features advertised include: External pocket, all-way stretch, breathable, chafe-resistant, moisture-wicking.
Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by my experience of becoming a Fabletics VIP Member. Sign-up was easy, the shopping part is always fun, and I loved the quality and style of all the items I ordered! The only cons I have are the leggings I ordered ran just a tad tight (they may stretch to fit better as I wear them more) and the shipping time seemed long. Fabletics did inform me that their shipping time may be delayed due to Covid and the various delays associated with that so hopefully the wait to receive future orders gets better.
I would absolutely recommend becoming a VIP member! The cost savings was definitely worth it for the quality and style. If you’re worried about feeling locked in to spending money, it isn’t as bad as I expected! You don’t have to spend anything as long as you go to your profile and skip the month by the 5th of every month. Worried you’ll forget to skip a month? Fabletics is supposed to send you a reminder to skip and if you’re still concerned, set up an event on your phone calendar to remind you to skip at the beginning of each month like I have!
