I recently did some shopping online.
Yes I know it’s not exactly news, as I am a self confessed shopaholic. However, I didn’t shop at one of my usual places, I went to a place I had never ever been to before, because I didn’t really like the idea of subscribing to something (with a fee) when you aren’t necessarily going to be shopping there a lot. Here is my Fabletics Haul and review for you.
Fabletics is a subscription online store, where you pay £49 as a subscription fee, which is kept on your account as credit to spend on the products in store.
One question I ask myself is
Is it worth it?
Honestly I don’t think I would pay the price every month for this service. You can’t really get a lot for the price, and I don’t like the fact you are forced to go to the website every month to opt out if you aren’t wanting to purchase anything.
Are the products good, and worth the money?
The products are good yes. But I wouldn’t say they are fantastic. The leggings roll down as you move, which becomes uncomfortable, and when washed the padding in the sports bras are folded over and not in the right places, there is no way for you to be able to remove the pads before washing.
The clothes are incredibly expensive. If I earnt a lot more than £8.50 an hour then I might say that they are worth the money but everything is around £30-£90 and that’s just for single items. Usually for active wear I don’t spend more than around £10-£20, for these I would say that £20-£30 would be more suitable, especially as they don’t really wash well.
Do you get quality for the price you pay?
The clothes are good, and they feel great on, but when washed I feel they let themselves down. The leggings end up with a sort of “penguin tail” once washed following all the instructions, and the sports bras end up with folded padding.
For the price you pay, I expect the labels to be smaller in the sports bras, and the leggings to wash well, as well as the padding to be sewn in so it doesn’t move.
DO you still get the good deals you get when you first sign up?
Every time I look on the website for something new or just for a browse you are only given everything at a “VIP” price which is just a discounted price for the products compared to if you hadn’t signed up. NEWSFLASH you will never be paying the full price for the products, that’s how the company works.
I would like to see the introductory offer of a % off the products, and the 2 for £24 on the leggings still available to returning customers. As I have said before I wouldn’t pay the price of the products unless they are discounted heavily as I personally don’t think the products are worth the money.
This is my experience of Fabletics, let me know if you have tried them out and what your experience was. Do you share the same opinions or different?
