A Fabletics class action lawsuit may be an option for customers who attempted to cancel monthly auto-renewal payments but continued to receive charges for the VIP program. According to multiple consumer complaints, Fabletics automatically enrolls customers into a VIP monthly subscription membership after making a single purchase. Customers are then reportedly charged a monthly fee, sometimes without realizing they even signed up for the program.
If you or someone you know purchased sportswear from Fabletics and were charged a monthly fee after attempting to cancel the company’s auto-renewal program, you may be eligible to seek compensation with the help of a consumer fraud attorney.

Fabletics Auto-Renewal Program Could Violate California Law
Fabletics, LLC is an online retail company specializing in workout apparel for men and women. Founded by Adam Goldenberg, Don Ressler, and actress Kate Hudson, Fabletics is a subsidiary of TechStyle Fashion Group headquartered in El Segundo, California.
If consumer reports are indeed true, Fabletics and its parent company could be in violation of California state law, specifically California’s Automatic Renewal Law (ARL).
Under California’s ARL any company must:
- present automatic-renewal terms in a “clear and conspicuous” manner in visual or temporal proximity near a request for consent to the offer;
- obtain affirmative consent before charging a customer’s account; and
- provide an acknowledgment that includes the automatic-renewal terms, cancellation policy and information regarding how to cancel the subscription in a manner that is capable of being retained by the consumer.
In addition, the ARL states that any “consumer who accepts an automatic renewal or continuous service offer online shall be allowed to terminate the automatic renewal or continuous service exclusively online.”
Businesses that engage in such practices in the state of California could violate state law, and customers who purchased ads under such agreements may be able to pursue a claim with the help of a consumer fraud attorney.
How Can an Attorney Help?
When a company engages in false or misleading advertising of its products, or otherwise commits deceptive trade practices, that company could be liable for any damage that results.
The actions of the defendants could constitute fraud and misrepresentation, breach of warranty, breach of contract as well as violations of various consumer protection laws, including California automatic renewal statutes.
Compensation may be sought for:
- Costs incurred by owners, including loss of value, attributable to any wrongful conduct
- Refund of the purchase price paid for affected services
- Damages related to violations of consumer protection acts
- Attorneys’ fees
Individuals who were wrongfully auto-renewed after joining the Fabletics VIP program and were charged the VIP membership fee may be eligible to pursue damages through a Fabletics class action lawsuit and are encouraged to seek the advice of an experienced consumer fraud attorney to learn more about their rights and remedies.
