Hey everyone! It’s no secret that I enjoy working out, and I love fashion. I love looking put together, even in the gym! Something about new workout gear can bring a lot of motivation, and today, I will be talking about and reviewing the brand Fabletics.
Since starting my fitness journey, I have discovered a few fitness brands that I love. Fabletics is definitely one of them, and today I will explain why. This brand was created in 2013, but I became a member in 2018. Keep in mind that I will simply share my opinion of the brand. The items that I own by this brand are not very new, but I will include a link to the Fabletics website so you can check out the site and the workout gear for yourself!
When you first sign up to become a VIP member, you will take a short quiz that asks questions such as “What’s your favorite way to get fit?” “What colors best match your style?” and “Which best mirrors your body type?” You will also be asked to put in your size preferences. By answering all of these questions, you will get more of a personalized selection!
When I subscribed to Fabletics, there was a 2 for $24 deal on leggings. This is what made me want to try the brand because fitness gear can be pretty expensive sometimes. Plus, I had heard great things about the brand. Subscribing is free, however, you can choose whether or not you want to skip the month or shop and pay $49.95 a month. (Remember, you only have until the 5th of every month to skip.) If you decide you want to shop, the charge becomes a VIP Member Credit you can redeem on purchases of $49.95 or more. You can also cancel your membership at any time.
I absolutely love the personalized and stylish gear that this brand offers, and every month, there are new items to check out! While I love all of the fun patterns and bright colors, I typically like to go for a more subtle look with my workout gear. I do own a few colorful and patterned pieces, but when it comes to my leggings, I like them to be a neutral color and I prefer a high-waisted style as well. I love that Fabletics focuses on the smaller details just as much as the larger ones. Little things like pockets and mesh detailing can make even the simplest leggings so much cuter. I have compared the prices to other fitness brands, and I would say that they fall into the average price range. Some of the items can be a bit pricey for me, but as someone who loves to shop, I have found ways to purchase clothing in more affordable ways. I always look for coupons, deals, and I shop sale items as well.
When it comes to sizing, I have struggled to find what works for me. In most leggings, I would say that I am a size small. With Fabletics, I do not believe this is the case. The three pairs of Fabletics leggings I own are all a size small, and they are just a bit too tight around my thighs. The problem is, they fit perfectly around my waist. I truly do love my legs, and they have gotten a bit bigger and stronger since I began weight training. This means that certain pairs of bottoms, whether they are jeans or leggings, can feel a bit tighter around my thighs. Their leggings do not have much give, so I am going to purchase a pair in a medium to see if this is a better fit for me. Of course, this is better than leggings that are too stretchy, because these often wouldn’t last. I’ve had the same problem with the sports bras. I ordered mediums, when I think smalls would have been just fine. I feel that the quality of Fabletics gear is pretty great, and the leggings seem to be long-lasting. Knowing your body size and taking measurements may be helpful to finding your perfect fit.
The leggings are adorable and trendy, and the ones that I own are squat proof (meaning that they are not see-through when squatting.) I have realized that my favorite pairs are seamless. I think that they are more flattering and comfortable. I am also a fan of full length or 7/8 leggings, and I would often choose these over capris or shorts.
I have styled all of my Fabletics items for you today. These are a few of my favorite looks to workout in. Again, these items are not new, but I wanted to show them anyway.
This first outfit is probably the most comfortable. I love the black seamless leggings and the simple details on the sports bra. The bright orange top is perfect for the warmer months, and I reach for tank tops the most when changing for a workout.
This next outfit is a bit more fun! I just love the floral pattern and the cutouts on this sports bra! Once again, I have a loose fitting tank that I will sometimes tie in a knot to make it more stylish. It has a very subtle pattern on it as well. These leggings are navy blue, and they are cropped. These are a bit too tight on me, but I still like to wear them on upper body days!
These are my most recent Fabletics pieces. I received this as a set for Christmas last year. I love matching sets, and these colors go together beautifully! The sports bra is bright pink with a high neckline and almost a fishnet/mesh detailing. It could even be worn as a crop top. I normally do not like long sleeved tops when I work out, but this one would be perfect for hikes in the colder months. I love the cutout detailing all over this top as well! The leggings are burgundy, and the cutouts match the top perfectly. Once again, these leggings are a bit too tight on me, but I still wear them from time to time.
Overall, I would recommenced trying out Fabletics. Their pieces are trendy and fun, yet subtly stylish at the same time. There really is something for everyone! They not only sell clothing, but shoes and accessories as well. Whether you are into weight training, yoga, or running, I feel that Fabletics is worth a try!
