Fitness: Wantable Fitness Edit Review – July 2016

July just so happens to be my birthday/favorite month, so receiving another Wantable Fitness Edit on my doorstep felt like an extra special gift, even though it was expected. I have been using this service for nearly a year, and am so happy for how it’s elevated my fitness wardrobe (read: motivation for working out).

And the sweet box doesn’t hurt.

If you don’t know about this Edit, here’s how it works:

Wantable’s Fitness Edit is essentially your own personal stylist via mail. You receive five items to try on in the comfort of your own home (sans pushy salespeople or fat mirrors),  keep what you want, and send back what you don’t. A return label and envelope is provided to make the send-back seamless. BUT if you keep all five items, you receive 20% off the total price. Need to know: You do pay a $20 styling fee, which is nonrefundable, but is applied to your final purchase.

Your stylist gets to know you thanks to an all-inclusive (but brief) survey where you provide your sizes and answer questions regarding the types of items you’d like to receive (sports bras, shorts, pants, tanks, hoodies, etc.), activities you do, and even the colors you prefer. A rating system of dislike, like, and love keeps it easy, and you also select your preferred price ranges. Then your stylist handpicks your collection for the month.

Let’s take a look at my colorful July Edit.

Inferno Performance Top ($47)

This is definitely a great top made of quality, moisture-wicking material, and I love the eye-catching color. And even though it fit well, I’m just not one to work out in T-shirts, so I sent it back.

Keyhole Tank in Zebra Print ($46)

If you read my April or June review, you know I love workout gear that pulls double duty for a night out, so I was immediately drawn to this. I don’t know if I’d even wear it to sweat, But I would definitely pair it with black leggings or jeans and hit the town. And the long armholes and open back are begging to show off a pretty bra. I obviously kept this one.

Power Through Legging III Purple Paradise ($86)

I liked these pants enough — they were comfortable and cute — but didn’t LOVE them enough to add to my (already too large) collection of workout leggings. One cool thing I noticed in the description was that they are especially odor resistance with “antimicrobial properties”, so perfect if you are hitting a sweaty workoout and need to be somewhere right after.

No Holds Barre Sports Bra Purple Paradise ($44)

I love the print on this sports bra and the material felt quality, but it wasn’t a perfect fit for me, so I sent it back with its matching leggings. So long, purple paradise!

Infinity Legging in Charcoal ($88)

These pants are one of my favorite items I’ve received in my year of Edits. They are Free People, so soft, and feel like a second skin. And the double cut-outs on the side make them extra cute. I actually wore them to my megaformer class and got multiple compliments the second I walked in.

Overall, I was very happy with this Edit — getting a new pair of perfect pants is ALWAYS a major win in my book. If you want to see what it’s all about, check out Wantable’s Fitness Edit.
