Lots of ladies have been shopping on Amazon, but Fabletics presents something that is new and different. On Amazon there are a lot of choices for clothes, but there is really no sense of personalized style that is available through Amazon. That is what Kate Hudson has tapped into when she started Fabletics. This is the company that has been able to grow in leaps and bounds because Kate Hudson implemented the concept of the style profile.
This is a very strong competitive advantage for Fabletics because it sets this company apart from most of the other companies out there.

This will lead them to a different type of environment where they get the chance to choose clothes according to their workout style. Once they do this they have the ability to sign up for the subscription service that allows them to receive these type of comments that they have selected on a monthly basis.
Many people have become excited about what it means to have a company like Fabletics that is coming to different stores throughout the United States.
