I have been searching far and wide for my new favorite workout/loungewear. When I was in high school I loved Victoria’s Secret yoga pants (as did everyone else). But lately, I feel like I haven’t been able to find any that I like. Maybe I’m just too picky… They’re always either too loose, too tight, too thin, itchy, etc.
I’ve been seeing things about Fabletics everywhere. So on a whim, I finally decided to give them a try. I was extremely hesitant about buying something online that I couldn’t try on in store to get an idea of how the sizing was. But I figured 2 for $24 leggings would be worth it to try out.
(These items were all purchased by me. This review is my honest opinion. I have not been paid and have not received free products in exchange for this review.)
In order to get the discounted pricing, you should sign up for the VIP program. It’s very simple to sign up and honestly, you can just cancel your membership immediately if you just want to do a one time purchase. If you don’t wish to have your credit card charged monthly, you will need to either cancel your account or sign on and skip the month each month. I originally thought I would end up canceling my account after my first order, but man was I wrong.
Do I like them?
I adore this brand! I’ve placed 2 more orders within a month after my first purchase. So far I’ve acquired 6 pairs of leggings and 1 sports bra, all for less than $100. I am COMPLETELY ok with that!
The material is unlike any I’ve felt before. It’s so soft but has great compression and great stretch. The material doesn’t feel particularly hot. They breathe well, but still manage to not show any panty lines or cellulite. HALLELUJAH!
Seriously, they are perfection. AND, some of them have pockets.
DID YOU HEAR THAT? POCKETS!
They also pass the squat test. I repeat these suckers are indeed SQUAT-PROOF.
I have tried the Winn Medium Support Sports Bra, Salar Mesh Powerhold Capri, High Waisted Mesh Powerhold Capri, and the Salar Powerhold Capri (shown left-right below). My favorite is probably the High Waisted Mesh Powerhold Capri only because they are the ones with pockets. Otherwise, I honestly love them all!

Is Fabletics True to Size?
I find the sizing to be fairly accurate to the size chart. If anything, I would say they run a half size too small on the leggings that I’ve tried. Nothing too drastic. I order true to size. I find that the leggings are a little tight around my large calves, but not uncomfortably tight. They fit perfectly in the waist and thigh areas.
I bought the sports bra a size too big because dummy me read the size chart wrong. But it works fine for lounging around the house in. I will certainly be buying another one (or two, or three) but in a size down for more support.
I highly recommend this brand and will continue purchasing more from them. Probably not on a monthly basis because ya girl does not need THAT many pairs of leggings (or do I?!).
If you’d like to give them a try for yourself (which I highly recommend), below is a link to get the 2 pairs of leggings for $24 deal!
