Everything You Need to Know About the Wantable Active Edit

I am a big fan of trying Wantable, and have previously reviewed their Style Edit and compared it to Stitch Fix. I have recently increased my workouts (trying to lose those last 15 lbs!), and thought now is the perfect time to try Wantable’s Active Edit for workout and loungewear clothes, not to mention for working from home. Here is my full review of my first Wantable Active Edit, and why I like it even more than the Style Edit. Keep reading to find out if you should try it, too!

Overview of Wantable & the Active Edit

Wantable is a subscription clothing box, delivering signature looks and brands to your doorstep. Wantable uses a combination of stylists and technology to handpick apparel or active gear based on your budget, size and style. Wantable allows you to try on the clothes before buying so you can keep what you want, and return what you don’t, and only get charged for what you keep.

Wantable refers to its clothing boxes it sends out to clients as “Edits.” There are three edits that you can pick from: Style Edit, Active Edit, Men’s Active Edit. Wantable is for women looking for apparel, accessories and athleisure or workout clothes and for men looking for loungewear or activewear.

A Style Edit is for women and curates apparel and accessories, including petite and plus size. I have previously reviewed my Wantable Styled Edit in My Honest Wantable Edit Experience & Review and fully compared it to Stitch Fix in Stitch Fix vs. Wantable: Head To Head Comparison.

An Active Edit is for women looking for athleisure, workout outfits, loungewear, or comfortable looks for working from home. I will be reviewing my first women’s Active Edit in this article.

A Men’s Active Edit is for men’s loungewear or workout gear.

My First Wantable Active Edit Review

In summary, I was very impressed with my first Wantable Active Edit. It was very quick and easy to fill out the Active Edit style quiz, about 10 minutes. I also spent about 5 minutes requesting items from The Stream. In my note, I requested sports bras with extra support, high-waisted leggings, and loungewear.

I loved everything I received in my Active Edit, and thought everything was really cute and versatile, so I could go from the gym to running errands.

I received two sports bras, a pair of leggings, two tank tops, a pair of joggers and a long-sleeve crop top. Here is what I received in my first Active Edit.

What I Kept and Returned

Everything was really cute and I wanted to keep it all. For budget reasons, I decided to only keep what I knew I would wear often. Also, because I am budget-conscious, I love that Wantable will not send any items that are beyond the budget stated in your profile.

I decided to keep:

7/8 Pocket Legging in Heather Moss: The quality on these leggings were really good and I loved the deep pockets. These were also high-waisted which is what I requested. I have another pair of leggings in black by Zella that I love, so another pair of leggings was needed. The grey color filled a gap in my workout wear.

Graphic Pullover – Inhale, Exhale: I loved this pullover, and the graphic design on it. I think it will be cute to wear to they gym or just on the weekend with a pair of high waisted jeans.

Tye Dye Work It Out Jogger: I was on the fence with these joggers because of the print, but they were so soft and comfortable. I only wear joggers at home, so I was able to see past the print, and will definitely wear these to lounge around the house in. Also because, I was buying 4 other items, with the 20% off it was a good price.

Camden Tank in White Painted Leopard: This tank was actually my favorite item from the box. It has a subtle leopard print which is really cute. I can see wearing this over a sports bra to workout in. But I also thought it was so versatile, and plan to wear it as a bikini coverup as well at the beach!

Exert Bra in Teal: I really needed a new sports bra, so I’m so glad they included this one in my box. I asked for a high performance sports bra, which this one is. I also like that this bra is sustainably made. Best of all, I found it for $21 on MPG’s website and they price matched it! (To price match, after you check out, send them an email with the link to the exact same item at a lower price.)

I decided to return:

Weekend Graphic Tank: This tank was cute and fit well. However, I just didn’t need it so I decided to return it.

Basic Sports Bra: I only planned to keep one sports bra and I liked the teal one better, so I decided to return this one.

I am very satisfied with the items I kept from my box, and can definitely see myself wearing them all often!

I can’t wait to get another Wantable Active Edit but probably won’t get another one until next quarter, but I’m already planning to ask for all cozy loungewear – sweatshirts and joggers in my next Active Edit.
