So if you’re like me and are fitness (and social media obsessed) you’ve probably heard of Fabletics. I normally resist subscription boxes (I don’t like being tied down, what can I say…) but I couldn’t say no when Fabletics had a deal for newcomers to get an outfit (two pieces, top and bottom) for $25. That’s a steal in the world of fitness apparel — you can’t get one piece at Lululemon for that, unless it’s some crazy color no one wanted and is super sheer.
Fabletics is Kate Hudson’s fitness apparel brand and normally works where you get to select an outfit (2 pieces) for $49.95 every month once you sign up. You can skip a month before the 10th of that month — but if you don’t, you are billed $49.95 to use as future credit. I don’t love that aspect of it, but I am keeping my account active so I can peruse the site and see if any must-haves catch my eye in the future. Check out Melissa @ The Valentine RD‘s post for a more step-by-step guide on how the site works.
I filled out the online profile which asks things like what type of activities you do, sizes, etc. After perusing the site, I knew I had to have a pair of these leggings. I wasn’t obsessed with the top, but I did like the fact it crossed over in the back. I made my selection and a little over a week later my package arrived. It seemed to take a little longer than it should have, but I’m not complaining.
Overall, I LOVE the pants. They’re comfortable and stylish, and cute enough to wear as non-workout leggings. They’re also relatively thick, which is a plus. The top is fine — the material is a thinner fabric (read: cheaper) than I usually go for, but that came in handy recently in a heated yoga class.
Shout-out to my little brother who snapped these pics of me when I was home the other day for a dentist appointment. (Squeezing that in before I turn 26 and have a few awkward months without dental insurance. Cool.)
Another thing I like about Fabletics is their marketing technique. They have fitness instructors who serve as brand ambassadors (they call them “Masters.”) I like when large companies connect at the local level — it makes me like the company and feel like I can connect with them. Jason Wimberly is a Fabletics Master, as is Kristie LaTray over at YAS DTLA. I am so bummed SkinnyRunner was less than a mile from my apartment the other day at a Fabletics/YAS event and I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT IT!!! #tragedy.
I haven’t tried Ellie and am curious about quality/fit/style, etc.!
