Fabletics is Coming to Town

If you haven’t heard of Fabletics, then you are missing out on some fun and interesting clothing. The business may have started online, but now it’s taking over the brick and mortar retail market.

 

Starting Online

 

Fabletics started online as a subscription service. The way the online portion of the company works is that you can set up a subscription to the service monthly and then you will get an outfit in your style choice every month. The advantages are many as you can forget about it once you start and just get the outfit for your monthly fee and not have to leave your home. You also can stop your subscription if you need to for as long as you need to. This makes it easy if you are unsure about if you are going to be home one month or if you are short on cash. The online set up became so popular, the company decided to bring the clothing to stores.

 

Storefronts

 

After starting online for a few years, the company decided to expand their company reach to brick and mortar stores in some of the largest cities in the US. Currently, you can only find Fabletics in New York or Los Angeles, but they are looking at expanding soon. When you go to a store you can try on the many styes they have and decide if they have something you want in a different style from your subscription. Then if you like the clothing, you can purchase it and take it home with you. This works great if you are already away from your home and you decide to stop in to get something before your next exercise class. You won’t have to wait for your shipment and you can still get the clothing you know and love.

 

There are a lot of exercise clothing options out there, but you don’t want just any clothing. You want Fabletics. They are high quality and comfortable. They also are great for any time of day or night to wear. What more do you need from your exercise clothing?
