Why is this interesting?

Fabletics is a Los Angeles-based activewear brand that offers affordable, high quality and stylish workout clothes for women & men. It is in direct competition with Lululemon, taking a growing part of their marketshare by offering higher quality products at half the price. Fabletics has also been more size-inclusive than Lululemon, which has only recently started to offer more sizes.

Fabletics is much less expensive than Lululemon, but it’s not as well known or established yet. This makes it easier for people to try out the company without feeling like they need to commit to paying full price on something they might be unsure about (like Fabletics) or they don’t want (like Lululemon). Additionally, the fact they are women-owned has been a huge advantage for the brand since Lulumon has faced criticism over its owner, and former CEO Chip Wilson’s sexist and often crude comments
