I saw a commercial on these with Kate Hudson. I love kate, so that marketing ploy got me. Anyway, I browsed online, and saw the first outfit is $25 or something like that. No I have not purchased anything but, I am also intrigued.

MsGinkgo:  I tried it and HATED it! The quality of the clothes were soooo cheap to me. Not worth it. I cancelled right away.

MsGinkgo:  I have a feeling the whole $25 thing is to get your foot in the door and then when you find something you really like, it’ll cost you $100.  That’s usually how that stuff works.  

Tempting, but I’ll stick to TJ Maxx and Marshalls for gym gear, they have a ton!

MsGinkgo:  Oh no!  What about Walmart?  They carry Danskin brand gym type items.  It’s not exactly Under Armour, but it gets the job done at a good price.

I’ve been a subscriber to Fabletics for about a year now. Yes, the $25 for your first outfit is just to get your foot in the door. After that, they automatically bill you $49.95 each month unless you select “skip” each month or cancel your subscription. Regular outfits start at $49.95. The most expensive outfit I’ve seen has been $79.95, and that’s because it comes with a jacket or some type of outerwear.

I’ve skipped a lot of months, but I have gotten quite a few outfits I enjoy. I too have DD boobs so I never order outfits that come with bras because they frankly do absolutely nothing in terms of support (Kate herself has tiny boobs so maybe she doesn’t understand our plight!). I have several scarves, tops, pants, and a headband, all that I use regularly. I actually think the pants are very high quality. The tops are thin but one of my favorite yoga tops is from there, and the cotton tops are great for lounging around my apartment.

If you do sign up for the $25 outfit this month, don’t forget to skip or cancel your subscription by November 5, unless you plan on buying an outfit for $49.95!

MsGinkgo:  I’ve yet to find a good “cheap” sports bra that provides me with any meaningful support. My favorite is the Juno bra from Moving Comfort.

I will be honest, it was worth it for the $25 outfit I got at first. I liked the outfit well enough (capris and tank top) and it helped that they had just expanded to include XXL because the sizes run small. But I skipped just about every month after that, and then I decided to cancel. There was nothing worth $50 to $70 to me. If I was going to pay that, I could get something from the Premium C9 line at Target.

i used one email address to get the first $25 outfit. and actually used a visa giftcard, so they could never automatically charge me even if they wanted to *insert evil laugh here*. I had a friend use 3 separate email addresses to get 3 $25 outfits, then cancelled them. I LOVE LOVE their capris. Love the shirt i got. but their sports bras are crap. dont waste your time with them. super flimsy with no support at all

I signed up as a trial just to see what types of clothing/outfits they had and while I liked the designs and actually love the look of some of their leggings, I knew I wouldn’t be ok with buying a workout outfit every month. Yes it’s inexpensive compared to lulu but I also don’t need new full workout outfits every month. Buying one and continually skipping would just be a waste so I never continued after the trial. Good to know the quality isn’t even that good…I’d stick with finding discounts on nike or adidas at tjmaxx or something
