Fabletics | Shopping as Guest or VIP Member? Which is Better?

When choosing a sports apparel, it pays to not just select blindly but consider a number of factors including quality, size, fashion and the type of fabric used. Do not underestimate the power of a quality sportswear on your sporting activities. Getting the right size enhances freedom of movement, therefore boosting performance. The quality of our sportswear on the other hand helps to protect you from injuries, and, so does the type of fabric used. Lastly, the style of your sports attire helps to boost confidence, hence motivating you to keep training or exercising. Besides, feeling good about yourself while exercising, is more motivation than anything.

 

Getting a great sports attire can be a daunting task. However, if you work with a reputable brand, you know you will always get quality for your money. Fabletics makes one of the leading sportswear companies. Here is a Fabletics review to help you decide whether they are worth your money.

 

History

Fabletics was founded in the year 2013 by three very innovative individuals including Kate Hudson. This brand was created following the identification of a market gap where there were no luxury sports apparel brands that offered quality and stylish garments at affordable prices. They started out with a female sports wear line but have since expanded to accommodate men. You will find them in countries like Germany, Canada, US, UK, Spain, and Netherlands.

 

Methods of Shopping

There are two methods of shopping via Fabletics. You can choose to shop as a guest or as a VIP members. With the guest type of shopping, there are no commitments. You shop and checkout and come back when you like. However, with the VIP membership, there are commitments and benefits that match them.

 

As a VIP members, an amount of $49.99 will be deducted from your credit card, every month. This is unless you have notified the system to skip the month. If that is the case, no amount will be deducted and no charges will apply. If you don not skip the month the amount deducted can be used in shopping whatever apparel you desire.

 

Unlike other companies, with Fabletics, you can cancel your VIP membership at any time, without incurring penalties.

 

Shopping Process

The shopping process begins with a short survey to get an idea of your size, taste and preferences. Then, a customized display of attires that suit your needs is displayed. Next, is the selection then checkout. If you are checking out as a VIP member you get discounts of up to 50% and loyalty points each time you check out.
