Why take time away from your workout to shop for workout clothes? Fabletics offers stylish clothing with fun colors and bold patterns for the gym, for a run, and for just hanging around.
Fabletics creates a shopping experience uniquely for you. First choose your perfect workout – the gym, running, yoga, or cycling. Then tell Fabletics if you typically workout outdoors, at the yoga studio, at home, or in the gym. They give you a number of body type options to help you determine your fit. Then decide if you want to shop as a guest on the site to make a one-time purchase or if you want to join the VIP membership service.
The VIP program offers lower prices for clothing and lets you earn loyalty points for future purchases. You can choose to skip months if you know you won’t be shopping. If you don’t skip the month by a certain deadline, your credit card is charged the monthly fee and the money becomes credit you can use for future purchases. Members receive free shipping. Your membership may be canceled at any time via phone or live chat.
Fabletics also offers a rewards program where shoppers earn points each time a purchase is made and through reviewing products. The points can be redeemed for purchases and accumulating a certain number of points during certain amounts of time unlocks previews of new styles and invitations to in-store events.
If you need to return any items go to your account page to make note of what you’d like to return. Any unworn clothing with the tags still on can be returned within 30 days. You can opt to print a mailing label or return items to a store.
- Guest shopping is free but the clothing costs more and there is a shipping fee.
- VIP membership is $49.95 per month and includes free shipping and discount pricing.
Pros and Cons
- Most people love the clothes they receive and say the quality reflects the price.
- Fabletics draws in customers with a 2-for-$24 leggings deal but you have to go through the registration and shopping process within an hour to get that deal.
- The clothing is size-inclusive but not all the clothing is shown on plus-sized models so it is difficult to tell how the fit really looks on all body types.
- Despite the large range of sizes available, some people note there aren’t many body-type options to choose from so it may take a few tries before you find the style that fits properly.
- There have been complaints about customer service and trouble canceling membership. You have to be on top of every word in the contract in order to not lose money.
- Fabletics offers a small selection of men’s athletic clothing.
A new outfit is a fun way to jumpstart your workout routine and many customers find that Fabletics is worth the money if you’re the type of person who regularly shops for athletic wear. They love the clothes and find the prices comparable to other outlets.
