WOW

Posted by CheapRunnerMichelle

So last week I took the plunge and decided to order Fabletics. From what I could tell from looking at their products online - the styling (as far as the pants are concerned) were VERY similar to Lululemon. Now ya'll know I love my lulu...and even though it's pricy, I feel like the quality, styling, and cuts justify the price tag...with that being said...there hasn't really been anything in quite some time that I've "had to buy"...I haven't been lovn' the new colours and patterns...so at a fraction of the price, I thought I'd order something from Fabletics to see how they compared. If you join the VIP, you can choose 2+ piece outfits that start at just $49. After doing their little survey, they put together outfit looks for you that you can then shop...there were 2 that caught my eye, so I put them in my shopping cart and checked out. Within 2 business days my outfits had arrived. Here's what I decided on:

I've been wanting to get a plain black pair of crops from lulu for awhile now, and just hadn't got around to it....and I luv, luv, luv the back of the top I got. It's a thin fabric and perfect to throw on for to and from - definitely not a top I would workout in, but very stylish and super comfy. The crops are perfect! They have the slit pocket in the waistband...and speaking of waistband...if you own a pair of lulu bottoms...you know they mastered the perfect waistband to not give us girls a muffin top...and these crops did not disappoint. They fit perfect and I actually think the black fabric is thicker and better quality then lulu these days...so outfit 1...I am extremely happy with...and for both pieces for $49...how do you go wrong?!?

Outfit #2 was the reverse colours. I have quite a few lulu pants that are this style, so these ones were the ones that I was really able to compare apples to apples...quality and cut are exactly on par with the lulu ones!!! Needless to say I was super stoked, 'cause again this 2 piece outfit cost me $49 (compared to the $82 lulu price tag...JUST for the pants)

I am super impressed and look forward to seeing what outfits are "suggested" for me on November 1st (on the 1st of every month they send you outfit suggestions that you can purchase, pass or choose something different).

    I love that you wrote this review! I've been debating this brand for the last little bit and since I too swear by Lulu and don't have an issue paying for something that fits perfectly I'm glad to know that these guys compare. Based on this post I think I too will pull the trigger! Thanks.

  3. I don't own a single Lululemon item:(
    I love Target workout stuff - I'm pretty simple.

  4. I love that top! I ordered an outfit from Fabletics too. I haven't worn it yet, but I really like it. My blue pants look similar to those.

  5. Super cute outfits, I have read a lot of good things about Fab. I actually do not own ONE piece of Lulu. I'm not against it I just never found anything I LOVED for that price.
