Fabletics Review: Is it worth it?

I’ve always seen Fabletics floating around the internet but never really trusted them. I didn’t understand the membership process, I didn’t understand why items sold out so quickly and generally, I’m a little skeptical of a celebrity brand.

Before we moved, I took a final shopping trip to Oakbrook Center in Illinois with my mama when I saw Fabletics had a store front. I didn’t know they had any retail stores and was curious, so I popped inside. The woman who helped me was very nice and helpful without being pushy. I asked her questions and really appreciated her honesty. I told her I wanted something that would suck me in, without feeling constricted. She pointed me in the direction of their high waisted leggings as well as their PowerHold leggings. I entered the fitting room doubtful and emerged from the store a convert.

I asked you all on Instagram if you wanted to see a try-on haul and got an overwhelming yes, so here we are! Leave me any questions or your own Fabletics thoughts down below!

Fabletics Foldover Leggings Review

High-Waisted Foldover Leggings: If you’ve been following me for awhile now, you know that I SWEAR BY the Zella Live In leggings from Nordstrom (I have 5 pairs. It’s serious). These leggings are slightly thinner than the Zella, but they are not see through by any means. They’re a soft, lighter material, great for working out.

Fabletics PowerHold Leggings

Fabletics High Waisted Mesh Leggings

Mesh PowerHold Capris: Out of the two leggings, these are my favorite. I love the mesh detailing as well as the phone pocket. This material thickness is more similar to the Zella leggings. I love how compressed my stomach feels without being uncomfortable. I’m going to keep my eye out for these in black and if I see them, I will be purchasing.

Fabletics Martha Tunic

Tank top: Unfortunately this tank top is no longer available but I linked a similar tied tank here and muscle tank here. I love how soft and stretchy the material is.

Fabletics Seamless Sports Bra Review

Seamless Sports Bra: The linked bra is the exact same, just a different criss-cross design. Sports bras are something I don’t spend money on and normally get them from Target, exclusively when they’re on sale. I decided to go for this one, as the saleswoman said she wears them as her daily bra with thicker shirts and sweaters. It has a scoop front and removable padding, but most of all, a very comfortable underbust band.

As far as washing goes, I wash all of my athletic apparel on delicate and hang dry (I actually do this for most of my clothes, since I think it helps them last longer). These items washed up beautifully the first time. I can’t say how they’ll hold up over time at this point, but so far, everything seems good.

I can’t speak to the membership because I did not sign up for it at this time. The membership gets you deal pricing. Here is my understanding of the membership:

  1. You pay a monthly fee IF you do not make a purchase each month OR if you do not log in and indicate that you will not be making a purchase that month
  2. If you DO NOT purchase and item or log in to opt out for that month, you are charged your membership fee, but that fee can be applied toward a purchase at a later date.

So tell me – have you tried Fabletics? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear!

    I didn’t know they had stores! I’ve felt the same way–always intrigued but didn’t want to go through the membership process and purchase every month. Great post 🙂 I will have to go find a store now ha!
