Fabletics vs. Lululemon

by Emily Satzger in


So I have spoken of my love for Lululemon before on my blog, but my love and wallet don't always match up.  As I have begun to work out more I am in need of purchasing a few more pieces of workout clothing that can be in constant rotation.  Side note/ I work out in a warehouse that doesn't have a/c or more importantly heat, so in the fall/winter it's COLD!  

When we were at The Greenbrier Leah and I started chatting about workout gear and she told me about Fabletics, sometimes I question the fact that I may live under a rock.  Anyway, I am sure most of you have heard about this workout clothing line, but it was all new to me and I am giving joining some serious thought.

Fabletics is a membership you pay for, basically $50 a month, and receive an entire outfit, of your choice.  If you don't want an outfit that month, you can hit a cancel button before the 5th of each month.  OH, and when you sign up you get 50% off of your entire purchase.  

My worry is the quality, I love stylish workout gear but what I really love about Lululemon is the fabric quality.

Here are some of my favorites from Fabletics.

I love that this tank has a built in bra, it reminds me of the power Y tank from Lululemon, which is my favorite.

So I always admire the people who have these crazy patterned pants, but I've never purchased any because they're usually expensive and I have trouble justifying a lot of money for pants you can't wear day in and day out(like basic black).  However, the price makes these tempting.

I love this jacket, the pop of neon(on the front) is pretty and smart(if you run in the early morning or at night). A tight fitted jacket is great for workouts, I have this jacket from Lululemon and it stays on the entire workout if it's cold.

I love these pants and would wear them all the time, not for working out but around the house or traveling.  They remind me a lot of something that would be featured in Lululemon's to & from line.

This is what I need stat!  The mornings are so cold right now, which makes a warehouse with a concrete floor super cold.  Thin and tight long sleeve layering pieces are key!  It reminds me a lot of this basic layering piece from Lululemon.

I love this layering piece, it's seems to be soft and would be a nice pop of color in my otherwise black workout wardrobe.  They make it in a pretty light grey as well.

 

Please let me know if y'all have tried Fabletics or know of people who have and your/their opinion on the line.  I really love the idea of the line, just want to know if the fabric is substantial enough and comfortable.
