Fabletics Review

Last month I posted about a new addition to the JustFab family, Fabletics. To read my original post, you can click here.

I completely failed in getting a review up right away but thanks to a comment from a reader, I was reminded to post this up!

Even though I'm not an avid fitness buff, I was really excited for this package to arrive. My order came within a week's time and I was so excited that I forgot to take any pictures of the packaging. Can we say blogger fail?! If my memory serves me right though, it came in a no frills white plastic packaging (similar to packages that come from ASOS).

In my excitement, I ripped all the tags off right away and tried on the items. Within a few hours I was already hitting the pavement and was out for a run. It's amazing what a motivation new fitness clothes can be, proving to myself once again that shopping is good for my health! Haha. All the apparel comes individually wrapped in plastic, and each item has a Fabletics tag attached with it's original pricing and a summary of the apparel's features.

As I mentioned in my last post I purchased the Reveal set which included the Omemee Sports Bra, Nadi Leggings, and a headband. When purchased all together the set goes for $49.95 as opposed to the retail total of $79.85.

Omemee Sports Bra- Retail Price $24.95

I liked the asymmetrical straps on this bra but as far as function, I was worried it wouldn't be enough support. I'm working with quite a healthy set of ta-ta's for lack of a better description, and it definitely poses challenges when finding a good work out bra. I have to say that this is one of the better sports bra's I have ever worn. The material is great quality, the removable cups provided great coverage, and the bra provided really good support. 

Nadi Leggings- Retail Price $49.95

I was most excited to try out the leggings and they did not disappoint! Not gonna lie, I wear them as part of my"errands day"outfit all the time now. Right out of the package I could tell these were quality leggings. The material was much thicker than I was expecting but in a good way. Great for cooler weather work outs but fine for warmer weather as well. Once you put them on, they just suck everything in and keep anything from jiggling. They are a bit long on me but because of the thicker material they stay in place and the extra length just stays bunched at my ankles (exactly as shown in the pictures on the site). The best feature though in my opinion is the chafe-resistant design and moisture wicking for dryness. Not exactly sure how they do this but my inner thighs are happy and dry! There's also a small pocket at the top seam of the pants (which at first I thought was a defect), but now it's just the most convenient place to put my house key in.

Headband- Retail Price $4.99
I haven't used this yet but to me it's just a standard headband. Not too much to say about it other than it's well made and I think it will last a long time.

All in all, I am very pleased with the quality of the items I received. If you are looking for some well made, quality work out apparel, I think Fabletics is definitely worth checking out. I think it's comparable to the likes of Lulumelon and at a much more affordable price if you purchase the sets. I now have my eye on the Force set which I think will be a great addition to my new Fabletics collection! Right now new members get 50% off their first purchase so it's a great time to try this line if you haven't already. Again, you don't have to make a purchase each month and you can cancel anytime which is great! To check out Fabletics, click here!
