I really, really wanted to love Wantable. I really did. Fitness clothes in the mail sounded wonderful – especially since the clothes I wear every day are workout clothes, and most of the outfits I own were hand selected by the one-and-only M-O-M. (Thank goodness my mom has good taste in clothes…)
I’ve already established that I’m a terrible shopper, right? Like horrible. Except for Target. I’m a GREAT Target (and IKEA) shopper. But, when it comes to clothes, I am clueless. This is true for workout clothes too. I just don’t know what’s in style and always default to whatever is the most comfortable thing in my closet. Honestly, I think I would wear sweat pants and hoodies every day if I felt that made me look professional. But, I try to look professional for my job, because, well, I LIKE my job and want to be treated like a professional.
I ordered my Wantable Fitness Edit back at the beginning of February and it finally came in last week. I ALWAYS get excited to have a package sitting on my doorstep, but it’s even more exciting when it’s a box of clothes that you are going to be completely surprised by. It’s like my birthday all over again. Maybe this is why I like these things so much. I might have a problem…
Upon first opening my box, I was excited – all the clothes looked super cute! Two hoodies, two pairs of leggings, and a sports bra. I literally never buy sports bras – again, thanks Mom. So, to get a cute one, I was pumped to try it on. Here’s what my Fitness Edit looked like:
Sorry, no pictures of me in this (again, professionalism), but I really liked this one a lot. It fit perfectly and made me really want to run in just a sports bra. However, being the cheap-butt that I am, the price was way too steep for me. Therefore, this one was begrudgingly returned.
Buzz 1/4 Zip Hoodie
I loved this hoodie immediately out of the box. It was totally my style and I loved the grey herringbone pattern on the sides and back (it’s hard to see it in the pictures). But, I felt like the fit was a little too big. I like my hoodies and sweatshirts bigger, but I felt like this was just not right. So, it got sent back as well.
I really liked these leggings too, but I really don’t need another pair of leggings, as I have plenty to keep me warm during cold winter runs. I also really didn’t like how loose it was on my ankles. Because I’m picky… Another return.
Poly Fleece Popover
Another one that I really liked out of the box. Cute color and super, duper soft. Totally my style. But, I felt like this one was also too big for me. I loved the longer length, but the sleeve length made it look like it was much too large for me. Return.
Plasma Long Legging
I wasn’t sure about these. Cute, yes. But, once I put them on, I felt like a clown. Ha! I don’t know – I just feel like this wasn’t my style really. I prefer neutral colors and this definitely was not neutral. Return.
So, I returned them all. Was it terrible? No. But, I also felt like the prices were way too high for workout clothes. But, again, I’m cheap. And only wear clothes I get for Christmas or my birthday. So, probably just me being really picky.
And I think I really would have preferred getting a box full of cute everyday clothes instead. Maybe because I wear workout clothes all the time it wasn’t as exciting for me. So, I may or may not try it again. Maybe I’ll try the makeup (yes, this P.E. teacher LOVES makeup) or even a Style edit. But, there’s a good chance I just might stick with Stitch Fix…
If you want to try it, here is a referral code for you (this is an affiliate link). I think maybe, after a few boxes, I’ll start enjoying it more. We shall see though…[Tweet “Trying @Wantable for the first time – a review of the Fitness Edit.”]
