Do I look like Kate Hudson yet? – a Fabletics Review

Despite being a typical avoider of all things active, I love me some activewear! So naturally I’ve found myself cruising around Kate Hudson’s Fabletics website more times than I’d like to admit. I started filling out my profile back in November, but chickened out when I got to the ‘give me your money’ part. A short while later I got a little extra motivation to complete the sign-up in the form of 75% off my first outfit! I couldn’t resist!


I had a great selection of outfits (all under $15!) to choose from. I picked the Salar Capri in Arctic/Black sub (regular $49.95, VIP price $34.95) and the Olympus tank in Perfect Peak Black (regular $34.95, VIP price $24.95).
My grand total with tax and shipping was $12.49.
…and both pieces fit me! I don’t love to wear tight on top and tight on bottom. So I’d probably never wear these two together, but I do like them. Both pieces are decent quality; I’d compare them to the Target brand activewear, which I happen to love. And for $12.49? Yep, I’m happy.
Now, to get the great pricing on your first outfit you’ll have to sign up for their VIP program. Basically, you are committing to a monthly subscription. They’ll send you an email at the beginning of the month with a bunch of outfits to choose from. Prices start $49.95 for a complete outfit. You can choose to skip the month if you want to. If you don’t skip the month and don’t pick an outfit to purchase, you will be charged $49.95. It will sit in your account as a credit. I skipped the month of January to buy some time for me to decide what to do next.
There’s just no way I could justify to Mr. Stewart that I needed to spend $50 a month on activewear to wear while being non-active, so I reluctantly called to cancel. I’ve heard from others that have tried this service that cancellation is a pain. Mine went something like this:
‘Hey, I need to cancel my VIP membership.’
‘Okay, I’m sorry to hear that, may I ask why?’
(sadly) ‘Finances.’
‘Is there anything we can do to make you stay?’
‘Nope.’
‘Okay then, please know you can still make purchases at Fabletics.com and sign back up for a VIP membership at any time.’
I paraphrased, but that’s pretty much it. Bet I wasn’t on the phone more than 3 minutes. No extra charges on my card. No problems.
 I made Micah take pictures of me trying some of Kate Hudson’s poses from the ads (with full intention of sharing here, but – hahaha – nope!) It turns out I look NOTHING like her, even with the outfit. Bummer. But seriously, customer service was great, clothes were good, and, believe it or not, the outfit (along with failing the Kate-Hudson-wannabe poses) encouraged me to go join Planet Fitness. Not kidding. That’s a whole ‘nother post, but let me just tell you – they have massage chairs.
