She’s strong enough to live without this activewear brand! Cher took to Twitter — her favorite public forum — to voice her displeasure with Kate Hudson‘s workout clothing brand, Fabletics, on Monday, July 18.
“Made mistake of going2 Fabletics. What a pain in the a—,” she wrote. “won’t even let u see anything Till u give them ur 1st born !! Felt I Was Being Conned.” The “Believe” singer took issue with the brand’s get-to-know-you survey.
After catching wind of Cher’s comments the next day, the brand — loved by celebs like Emma Roberts, Nikki Reed and Ashley Benson — kept things light when they tweeted back. “We LOVE you @Cher!” the workout brand responded. “Please know our quiz is to personalize shopping.”
Indeed, Fabletics, a subscriber-based fitness brand, has nonmembers fill out lengthy questionnaires before they can view the trendy options, which include leggings, sports bras, swimwear and even maxi dresses. (Members, on the other hand, get discounted outfits and can browse right away, since their preferences are saved.)
“By asking shoppers for their style and size preferences, we’re able to save our customers tons of money,” a spokesperson for JustFab, Fabletics’ parent company, told a Fox affiliate. “We only produce the clothing that people want. I wish we could turn back time and explain this to Cher.”
The “Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves” singer, 70, isn’t alone in her annoyance with the label. Other shoppers have pointed out the same problem.
exactly the same experience I had the other day when I went in there. I just left and went somewhere else

I felt exactly same way. Also extremely hard to get off @Fabletics mailing list!

so true! Their site was a complete turn off for me too. Nice outfits, but the way they do business needs some work.

While some shoppers commiserated with the songstress, many also corrected her.
