Fabletics Review

Since I wear activewear most of my life (it’s just so comfy), I’m a stickler for finding the best options on a budget. I’ve been shopping from Fabletics for over a year now and own too many of their leggings and sports bras, so I decided to share my Fabletics reviews to help anyone curious about this brand!

When it comes to activewear, quality is so important (especially for leggings). Poor quality might be too sheer, uncomfortable, give you a cameltoe, roll down, make your curves look strange, or could even rip in the gym! Because of this, I’m always on the lookout for top-quality activewear.

Keep reading to learn more about Fabletics and my experience with their products!

I found this quiz extremely helpful for choosing leggings, since they have so many options.

What is Fabletics?

Fabletics

Fabletics is an inexpensive activewear brand that sells a wide range of premium quality items. Their clothes are comfortable while also making you feel comfortable about your body!

They’re also well-known for their great introductory deals – for example, they almost always offer 2 for $24 leggings upon your first “VIP” purchase.

Fabletic Reviews

Now, let’s get into the good stuff. Leggings are their most well-known products, so I figured I’d start out with those.

I have tried just about every fit that they offer (with an exception of maybe one or two). They also sometimes release new limited-edition legging styles that I don’t always get to try. However, I have tried all of their signature collections. I’m going to give my honest Fabletics reviews on each and let you know why I like each of them.

They’re always releasing new styles, so I will update any time I try a new style as well.

When it comes down to it, Fabletics offers high-quality clothing and amazing deals when you become a member. I love that you can skip a month any time you want, but if you think you won’t remember to skip or cancel before you’re charged, you might not like the idea of having a membership.

All of the leggings I have tried have been top-notch quality; they’re durable, squat-proof, and they don’t roll down at the waist.

I honestly love all of the leggings fits that Fabletics carries (they have over 18 different fits with 6 different types of compressions). Plus, most options offer 3 different lengths!

Seamless Leggings Review

Fabletics

I’ve found that these are perfect for anything, from lounging to aerobics. They are extremely comfortable and lightweight.

That said, they’re not the best if you’re looking for compression – I definitely choose some other options when I’m ready to hit the gym for a hard workout.

PureLuxe Leggings Review

Fabletics

This is the one fit that I have not tried myself, but I have heard yoga lovers are big fans. I chose not to get this fit because I felt it was going to be similar to the seamless leggings, but I’ll have to try them soon. I’ll keep you updated!

SculptKnit Leggings Review

Fabletics

This is the one fit that I have not tried myself, but it’s next on my list.

Apparently, this fabric doesn’t fray, meaning you can cut these leggings to your desired length. I thought that was pretty cool! I’ve also heard these are very form-fitting and excellent if you want compression (and they make your butt look nice, which is always a plus).

UltraCool Leggings Review

Fabletics

I love this fit for the summertime or just generally working out in warmer environments (such as hiking or yoga outdoors). I live in the desert, and these manage not to make me feel suffocated and overheated during the summer.

They have mid-rise options, but I’ve always purchased high-rise and love them. I like having these leggings as an option for summertime so I don’t always have to go for shorts.

Powerhold Leggings Review

Fabletics

This is one of their most popular fits – Powerhold leggings will offer you high compression with a firm hold, making it perfect for showing off your curves.

In my opinion, this is the highest quality pair of leggings they have (it almost feels like it’s 2 or 3 layers thick). I find them perfect for the winter. They’re squat proof and have a fit that just makes your booty look great! I’m never disappointed by these – I always go for the high-waisted fits.

Motion 365 Leggings Review

Fabletics

This one is my second favorite out of all their legging fits. They aren’t as tight as the Powerhold, making them more practical for hanging out and doing everyday things like grocery shopping.

I love how it cinches at the waist and feels snug – many leggings often roll down my waist as the day goes on and I find myself continuously having to pull them up. That’s one thing I rarely have to worry about with most fits from Fabletics.

Since this is the name of the fabric, they can be harder to find, so make sure to look at the product details. The “Trinity” leggings use the Motion365 fabric. You can also search “motion365 leggings” and all of their leggings that use this fabric will typically come up.

Fabletics Sports Bras Review

Fabletics

Fabletics has some great sports bras that complement their leggings really well. They have various fits including low impact, medium impact, and high impact.

Their medium and high impact bras have great coverage and hold. I’ve never had to worry when going hard in the gym, and my gals aren’t small.

I’ve only ever received their sports bras when buying outfits, but I’ve got quite a collection going. Their outfits are always well put together and look super cute (plus they’re an even better deal than buying pieces by themselves).

I haven’t experienced many other items from Fabletics aside from sports bras and leggings. I have received a couple of outfits that came with tank tops, which have been very breathable and have lasted a long time.

Fabletics Men’s Review

Based on other customer reviews, it seems as though their men’s line is just as great as their other products. Customers say the clothing is comfortable and high-quality.

Plus, they have a variety of activewear to choose from such as shorts, joggers, tees, pants, jackets, and more. You can also view the men’s size chart here to find the perfect fit.

Sizing Reviews

For the most part, many people seem to agree that Fabletics runs true to size. However, the fit of each item is also important to keep in mind, since compression fabrics will be tighter than the others.

Lengths

Since Fabletics focuses on making women feel comfortable in any shape and size, they offer three lengths: short, regular, and long.

I love this – being on the shorter side, it can be hard to find bottoms that aren’t too long. With Fabletics, I can find the perfect length.

Size Chart

If you still aren’t sure about your perfect fit, Fabletics provides an in-depth size chart to help you find what’s right for you. You can view the size chart here.

How Does Fabletics Work? (VIP Program)

Fabletics

A lot of Fabletics reviews complain about the VIP program being confusing and misleading, but this is usually because they don’t understand it or read the fine print.

Their VIP program is a subscription-based service that provides you with personalized workout sets (usually made up of a sports bra and pair of leggings) each month. These are recommended based on the type of workouts you enjoy.

However, they don’t just charge you and automatically send you an outfit each month. There’s a bit more work involved.

You’re charged $49.95 per month for 1 “member credit” that allows you to purchase one outfit (or another item of your choice). Their outfits are a great deal – as a VIP member, these are significantly reduced compared to buying them as a non-member.

On the first of each month, you’ll be able to log into your account to view your outfits for the month. Also, between the 1st and 5th of the month, you can decide to skip the month if you don’t see anything you like.

If you want more than one outfit, you can add extras to your cart and just pay for them. You will still get the exclusive member pricing. You can also compile credits over multiple months and use them later (or like me, forget about them and then get excited when you see you have 3 member credits waiting).

To kick off your subscription, they offer a 2 for $24 deal on their bottoms, which is an amazing deal! Even if you can’t afford to keep the subscription, I would recommend at least getting two of these $12 leggings and canceling after. They are extremely high quality and last a long time.

As I said previously, this is a monthly subscription that’ll charge you $49.95 per month, so don’t just purchase your first order and forget about it!

Aside from the 2 for $24 deal that is always available, Fabletics also has occasional first-time VIP member sales (like 60% or even 70% off everything in their store, even outfits).

What happens if I don’t like anything that month? 

If you do decide to keep the subscription and come across a month where you don’t like their new collections, you can just skip that month with no charge (as long as you skip by the 5th). I really like this option because there are definitely months where I don’t feel like spending $50 on a set or honestly just don’t like the sets that month.

Forgot to Skip a Month?

If you forget to make a purchase or skip, you will be charged $49.95 for 1 member credit.

Each credit can be redeemed for one outfit (you can also use the member credit to purchase single items, but this isn’t as good of a deal). If you want to buy more than one item, you can simply add them to your cart and pay the extra cost with your card. You will still get their exclusive member pricing.

Luckily, member credits never expire. So if you forget to skip, you can always skip the next month and just use this month’s credit for next month’s outfit.

If you’re not a VIP, you’re going to be paying a high premium for everything in your cart. During their 70% off new VIP members sale, I purchased nearly $500 of products (3 leggings and 2 tops) for just $60. Without signing up for the VIP program, I would’ve had to shell out nearly $500!

FAQs

How do you cancel Fabletics membership?

Your membership can be canceled at any time, either by contacting their phone number available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
You can also cancel through live chat (hours are 9 am – 9 pm). You can cancel anytime after joining.

Who owns Fabletics?

TechStyle Fashion Group own Fabletics, along with other fashion retailer brands like JustFab and ShoeDazzle. The company was founded by Kate Hudson, Don Ressler, and Adam Goldenberg.

Is Fabletics VIP Worth It?

Overall, this depends. If you’re responsible enough to remember to skip months when you don’t want to get an outfit, then I definitely think you might like it.

I definitely tend to forget about subscriptions, so I usually end up paying for Fabletics every month, but I really don’t mind because I love their activewear so much and I can always use the credits. Plus, they sometimes even have special sales that I try to save some member credits for.

The only thing I dislike is that some of their VIP sales don’t let you use member credits, so you have to spend extra money on top of the monthly fee to get these deals. I wish my credit could be applied to these sales.

As far as bang for your buck, I definitely think the outfits are worth it! Outfits typically have a high-quality sports bra and pair of leggings (sometimes a top as well) for just $49.95.

While the first-time member deals will definitely be better savings, it’s just a one-time thing unless they have a great sale just for members. Don’t expect those crazy cheap prices forever.

Bottom Line

To sum up my Fabletics reviews, you can probably tell I love their activewear. Their products are such high quality for great prices. Although the monthly VIP program was a little weird at first and just seemed like a way to reel me in, I fell in love with their quality and I’ve started looking forward to my monthly outfits!

Not what you’re looking for? Here’s a list of clothing subscriptions you might like better!

Allbirds Launches Pink Running Shoes

Allbirds Pink Running Shoes

We’ve all heard the canonical phrase, “on Wednesdays, we wear pink” from the 2004 cult classic Mean Girls, but the phrase has been reincarnated in today’s launch of the Allbirds x Lindsay Lohan collab which declares, “on Wednesdays, we launch pink.” The pink to which the beloved brand is referring is a limited edition Lux pink color of the Allbirds Tree Flyer running shoe, available in both men’s and women’s sizes. The shoe also comes in six other color options and has gained attention for being both sustainable and a comfortable and reliable training shoe.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

The shoe was most recently included in Runner’s World’s “What We’re Testing” roundup for May. Runner-in-Chief Jeff Dengate found the shoe to be lighter and bouncier than Allbirds’ original running shoe, the Tree Dasher. “It’s a little lighter than the Dasher, the upper feels a bit more refined for running fast, and the innovative midsole is soft but can handle my daily runs,” stated Dengate. “It’s still a little heavier than comparable shoes—and there are a lot of great daily trainers you can find for $160—but it shows promise that Allbirds is committed to making a great running shoe without using petroleum-based products.”

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

While sustainability has become a top priority for countless consumers, many companies have fallen short of the mark with their supposedly eco-friendly offerings, which have either become subject to greenwashing or are simply sub-par products. But Allbirds is actually doing the work, creating a quality product that’s also actually eco-friendly. This shoe in particular is carbon-neutral and contains materials like castor beans, eucalyptus fiber, merino wool, and recycled water bottles. The brand has also pledged to continue lowering its carbon footprint as it expands its product offerings.

Women's Tree Flyers - Lux Pink

Besides her fame—and ties to their slogan—Lindsay Lohan may seem like a bit of an odd choice for a running shoe collaboration, but Allbirds says that was intentional. They state on their website, “with Lindsay’s help, we’re reminding the world that anyone and everyone can lace up and move their body.”

Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Review: Girl with Curves for Lane Bryant Collection
Hi! Coming to you super quickly to share 4 items I ordered from the Girl With Curves for Lane Bryant collection. If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably OVER me talking about it. But it’s good for many reasons!

Here’s why it’s a big deal:

I was 4 for 4: Do you know how rare it is that I keep every single item in an order?! Usually fit or fabric is off in some way or another, or I just don’t like garments on me. Keeping 100% of the things I buy doesn’t happen often.
Styles look great on so many body types.

Unexpected wins: Between color and *pants* this collection filled some major style gaps in my closet. I have an incredibly hard time with tops and pants (which is why 80% of what I own is dresses), and was able to find 2 tops AND 1 pair of pants that I loved.

Overviews of Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant

It sold out incredibly fast (some pieces, within hours) BUT Lane Bryant is now offering store shipping, so you can now order nearly all the items online again.

You can buy in store: So few plus collections can be purchased in nearly every city, and Lane Bryant is one of the few companies that has a wide retail presence. Go to the store and try these beauties on.

No fancy photos, just me and my iPhone, self-timer, and tripod. If you want to see these styles in-motion, I’ll put a video at the end here. Sorry it’s formatted oddly – I made it for IGTV.

Girl With Curves High-Waist Skinny Pant

Lane Bryant

It’s rare that you see me in pants and a shirt here, unless it’s a workout outfit! That’s because pants and shirts are difficult to find that fit my proportions. These pants tick all the boxes for me: they are high waisted (see video below for my tummy view), and stretchy, but look like trousers. They are sleek and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of them.

My problem with tops is that I’m 5’10 and long torsoed. So many shirts look like crop tops on me. It’s perpetual flesh belt city with me and tops. This one? PERFECT. Extremely long, but not sloppy in the least. Very comfortable. And the color? I’ve NEVER worn this color lilac before, and it’s beautiful.

Girl With Curves Belted Wrap-Hem Sweater

Lane Bryant

This sweater would be perfect with the high waisted pants from above, but here I’m wearing it with the jeans I happened to have on when they arrived. It is very long, and my favorite color of the moment – a rich marigold. The knit is comfortable, and very soft. The sleeves are a fun surprise.

Girl with Curves Pleated Trench Dress

This item was the fastest selling one in the collection, and it’s easy to understand why (though, not so great in this photo! See the video below) It’s navy, and can be worn as a dress or as a trench coat. It’s a beautifully made layering piece, or dress on its own. This will be a piece you can wear for years.

When a follower and friend reached out to me on Instagram and told me I should try shopping Nasty Gal’s plus size clothing, I was surprised to learn that the brand carried clothing for plus size women. And I’m not sure how I didn’t know…given that I absolutely worship Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal.

Does Nasty Gal have plus sizes?

Lane Bryant

I went straight to the Nasty Gal plus size clothing section hoping that I would stumble upon a gold mine of cute plus size clothing. Upon my first couple of scrolls, I was intrigued. I instantly saw pieces that I loved including this From New Button plus size skirt and this Never Stop Wandering plus size graphic tee, which is sadly out of stock! At first glance, I really loved the laid-back, but the chic vibe of the collection. However, I felt like there weren’t many options.

The plus size section only had 150 pieces, whereas the straight-size section had more than 500 garments. Aside from the slim pickings, I will say that the price point was perfect for me and my budget. I ended up getting this whole outfit for less than $30—with shipping included—during a sale. I was a little nervous to order this skirt because I noticed it was a non-stretch fabric.

What is Nasty Gal sizing like?

Lane Bryant

My usual rule when shopping online is to size up if it’s not stretchy or stay away from it at all costs. However, I decided to take a chance on the skirt and order my usual size. Besides, you all know I cannot resist a plus size mini skirt. When I got the clothes in the mail, I instantly tried on the skirt to see if it would fit. To my surprise, it was actually a little loose in the waist. The material was much thinner than I thought it would be, which I think helped the fit be so spot on. The T-shirt fits perfectly, as expected.

All in all, I am very happy with this look. I think the skirt is super cute and it could be paired with almost any kind of top. The T-shirt is my favorite, and I can’t wait to wear it with jeans and everything in between. I really hope that Nasty Gal continues to add to its plus size selection because I feel like the brand has a unique style and perspective to offer the plus size community that it hasn’t already seen!

If there is a brand that you would like for me to test out, feel free to reach out to me via email or on Instagram! I am always open to suggestions.

SIZING INFO:

Lane Bryant

I am wearing a size 18, which is my usual size, and the skirt fits perfectly. The skirt isn’t stretchy, but it fit me pretty well. I am wearing a size 18 in the T-shirt, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly!

Lane Bryant is my go-to for a few key product categories.

Lane Bryant Reviews

I’ve been wearing their Cacique line of intimates for years. I buy my shape wear at Lane Bryant, both their house line and the Spanx brand. I look to LB for quality tanks and tees that last, as well as the occasional blouse, dress, and sweater. So many plus size brands are ultra trendy, and Lane Bryant remains one of the few places you can shop for basics and staples.

Lane Bryant’s Cacique line of undergarments is a mainstay amongst plus size shoppers. They’ve largely been unchallenged as a primary source of bras in particular because they are the most well known and universally available. My first fully fledged bra came from Lane Bryant many many years ago and I remained a loyal customer through significant changes in band and cup size. Now, at a 44/46 DD, I continue to shop there, and I’m not entirely sure why.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Over the years, despite the fact that Lane Bryant could be considered an institution in the realm of plus size bra shopping, I’ve become extremely disillusioned with the Cacique brand. It took some time on my part, but I’ve nailed down the things that present the most problems for me.

The styles have largely remained the same. Cacique hasn’t followed many of the trends and the vast majority of bras remain the same from season to season with minor changes in color or print. The exception to this rule seems to be the brand’s undying devotion to all things cage bra and strappy detail, which isn’t entirely unappealing, but it would be nice to see more diversity in the brand’s offerings. I rarely see any innovation in construction or styles outside of back smoothing or cooling technology.

Lane Bryant Reviews

Lane Bryant has the potential to offer plus size customers, especially those in higher band sizes that are frequently ignored even by full bust lines, stylish designs in new shapes that reflect the shifting nature of the lingerie industry. But rather than make advancements on the actual style or primary function of a bra, the brand has instead decided to mostly focus on making plus sized bra shoppers minimize their back fat.

Lane Bryant Reviews

For example, Cacique could easily introduce a bralette, a style that is becoming increasingly available in plus sizes. Cacique could seize the opportunity to introduce trends that are almost impossible to find in plus, like sportier styles. The failure to innovate results in a lack of new and exciting options every season.

Frequent lack of availability in larger band sizes. My primary reason for sticking with Cacique for as long as I have is a simple one. A 46 band isn’t the most widely available, even among lines that are considered plus-sized bra lines. I admit, part of Cacique’s appeal is the relative breadth of selection, especially when compared to other retailers.

For example, filtering the results at Macy’s to show bras only in a 46 band size takes me from almost 900 bras to 20. The same filter at Nordstrom takes me from 915 options to 7. Amazon’s vast selection of over 2,000 bras goes to 118. A 46DD filter at Kohl’s takes me from 927 to 106 options and the same filter at target takes me from just over 1,000 options to 21. Even Torrid’s selection is cut nearly in half once the 46DD filter is applied.

Lane Bryant Reviews
Most frustratingly, almost all of the bras available in this size at every retailer are the same type of neutral, full coverage bra that is incredibly unappealing, especially held up against bras in smaller band sizes.
