Subscription boxes are a great way to learn about new brands and enjoy access to a curated selection of products. These two lifestyle subscription boxes are designed to introduce you to tools for self-care.
The difference between YogaClub and FabFitFun is that YogaClub offers discounted workout clothes, while FabFitFun offers a variety of goodies, from home goods to accessories. FabFitFun is a great way to treat yourself and try out products from brands you already know and like.
How Do They Work
These two subscription boxes are aimed at people who want to pamper themselves. The way they do that is very different, however.
YogaClub offers workout clothes so you can head to the gym (or brunch!) looking your best. FabFitFun doesn’t offer apparel, but they do send out accessories, skincare items, and household items like umbrellas, candles, and glassware.
YogaClub is a clothing subscription box with a special focus on workout clothes.
When you first sign up, they’ll ask a range of questions about your clothing preferences, such as how long you like your leggings to be, what color palette you like to wear, and if you like to keep any areas of your body covered.
Each season, your stylist will curate an outfit that suits your preferences. You’ll receive three items total, and usually you’ll get a top, a bottom, and a sports bra.
FabFitFun is a lifestyle subscription box without a special focus on clothes. Instead, you’re likely to get skincare products, kitchenware like rolling pins and bowls, or workout tools.
This box is curated to include quality items from brands like Free People and Kate Spade, and subscribers get them at a discounted price. Seasonal subscribers get to choose 4 items out of a list. For example, the list might include a blush, a vitamin C serum, a jewelry case, and a hair scarf. You can choose the one that sounds best to you. Annual subscribers get to choose all 6-8 items that come in a box, which is one of the main perks.
These lifestyle boxes are both designed to help you practice self-care. They look very different and offer different things, though.
Overall, YogaClub is better for those seeking workout clothes. It offers sizes from XS to 3X, but watch out for limited plus-size clothing options.
FabFitFun is better for someone who wants to practice self-care and schedule a quarterly delivery of treats. They let you choose at least 4 items for your box from a curated list of products.
- Makes it easy to build a wardrobe of athletic clothes
- Includes plus-size options
- Promotions like free leggings with your first box
YogaClub is specifically dedicated to workout clothes. They don’t just offer yoga clothes! You’ll also receive sports bras and leggings that can hold up to running and intense workouts. If you sign up, you’ll receive 4 new workout outfits each year, which is perfect for anyone who spends a lot of time in gym clothes.
YogaClub is now offering sizes XS to 3X. They used to only go up to size XL, but their new expanded size range is more inclusive. However, I want to note here that when I browsed their website, I only found sizes going up to 2X, and not a single item was available in size 3X.
YogaClub offers plenty of promotions, including discounts on your first box or a free pair of leggings with your first order. If you’re planning to sign up, make sure to check out their current promotions and sign up for their newsletter first!
- Quarterly instead of monthly
- Your stylist chooses items for you
- Limited plus-size selection
Before you subscribe, remember that this box comes only four times a year instead of every month. That means you’ll get fewer deliveries. Since this box offers workout clothes,
Instead of being able to choose items yourself, you’ll be relying on your stylist to choose items that reflect your style survey. If your stylist doesn’t understand your style or the company is running low on stock, you may not get clothes that perfectly reflect what you’d choose for yourself.
Though they do offer plus-size clothes, I noticed that many of their brands only carry up to a 1X. Only a few select brands offer up to 3X, so plus-size subscribers might want to try the box out first before signing up for an entire year.
- Customization option
- 6-8 full-size products
- Magazine with each box
- Trusted brands
- Value up to about $250
FabFitFun allows all subscribers to choose between a few options to customize their boxes. That means you’ll never get stuck with a random item that you don’t want or won’t use.
FabFitFun always provides full-size products instead of samples. While samples are fun, you don’t get as much use out of them, and if you get them as part of a subscription box, they can pile up quickly. Full-size items let you get a better sense of a product so you can decide if it works for you.
The free magazine with each box is a nice touch you can enjoy along with your items. THere’s nothing like flipping through a glossy, full-color magazine during your leisure time.
This box features trusted brands, from Free People to NARS. Chances are, you’ll have the option to try some of your favorite brands or ones you’ve been meaning to try.
Each month’s box is different, so it’s hard to make an exact estimate. However, these boxes are consistently worth several times the cost. This means you’re getting self-care items and other treats at a seriously discounted price.
- Quarterly instead of monthly
- Choice fatigue
If you want a monthly pick-me-up from your subscription boxes, a quarterly box may not be the best choice for you. Keep in mind that this box comes with full-size, quality items that can be used in your daily life, which monthly boxes don’t always provide!
Though the many options might appeal to some people (including me!), I know others who might not want to deal with the hassle of making so many choices. When the service lets you choose 4 or more items per box, it can feel less like a curated experience and more like a shopping trip.
How Much Do They Cost
These two boxes are both at a mid-range price point. They are only available quarterly, so you’ll only be charged every three months. If you choose an annual subscription, you’ll pay all at once and get a discount.
The annual price is almost exactly the same, but FabFitFun is cheaper by $20 for those who choose to subscribe seasonally instead.
- $79.99 per box seasonally, or $320 for a full year.
- $49.99 per box if you pay annually, or $196 every 12 months.
YogaClub advertises that their outfits are all at least 50% off the usual retail cost. Each box comes with three outfit staples.
If you subscribe annually, you save $124 dollars. That’s a pretty significant difference, so you may want to consider going for an annual subscription if you’re on a mission to expand your workout wardrobe.
- $59.99 per box for seasonal subscribers who don’t prepay for their boxes.
- Annual membership is $200 and allows for early personalization access and other perks. This breaks down to $54.99 per box.
This box comes with 6-8 items, meaning each item costs $10 or less, depending on the number of items in that particular box.
The difference between the annual and seasonal box isn’t too much. Saving about $5 per box means you’ll save $20 on an annual subscription as compared to a seasonal subscription. If you’re not sure about this subscription, it might be worth it to try it out before committing to an annual membership.
What Style Of Clothes Do You Get?
YogaClub is a fitness-focused box that provides subscribers with workout clothes. That means lots of comfortable, stretchy clothes you can wear while working out, doing chores around the house, or relaxing.
FabFitFun is a more general lifestyle box that includes a few accessory or jewelry options, but it doesn’t have a large selection of clothes.
YogaClub offers all the workout clothes you could need. Whether you’re a runner, a yoga devotee, or a pilates buff, there’s something for you. Boxes include sports bras, tops, leggings, bottoms, and shorts.
They offer sizes from XS to 3X. Since workout clothes are usually stretchy and form-fitting, you don’t need to worry about getting a perfect fit the way you do with jeans or button-ups.
The exact items that come in your box depend on how you fill out your survey. Your stylist will try to choose items that reflect your requests, such as covering your arms, showing off your calves, or solid colors.
Usually, you’ll get a bra, top, and bottoms of some kind in each box. The idea is that each box comes with a complete outfit, and as you get more boxes you can mix and match them.
Some of their brands include:
- Sol and Mane
- Vie Active
- Threads 4 Thought (plus-size)
FabFitFun is a lifestyle box that includes occasional accessories like scarves, slippers, and hats. Most of the options for this box aren’t clothes at all, though. This box truly shines because of the variety it offers and the quality houseware, skincare, and other treats. An earlier box from this year offered a core toning workout kit, for example.
Since FabFitFun tends to send accessories for your head, feet, and neck, you’re less likely to run into fit issues. These items will generally fit anyone, and you’re sure to find ways to integrate them into your life.
Some of their brands include:
- Chinese Laundry
- Too Faced
- Kate Spade
- Fenty Beauty
These two boxes are so different, it’s hard to choose a favorite.
YogaClub is a great box for gym rats who live in workout wear, but most people probably don’t need such a large selection of activewear.
By our count, FabFitFun is a better box overall because of the great value, the sheer variety of items you get, and the amount of choice customers get.
