Here are the activewear outfit choices that are available for January 2021 at Ellie. There are 18 outfits to choose from this month. Quite a few of them are repeats, so if you were ever torn between a few options, you might be able to snag a past favorite this month.
You can head over to the Ellie website to sign up and choose one of these outfits (if available) until the end of the month. If you are a current subscriber, you must choose or skip by January 4.
In the fall they started adding more pull overs and long sleeve shirts to the collections. There’s a good mix of short and long sleeve tops, sleeveless tops, pullovers and jackets this month.
The accessories this month, if you have a 5-piece subscription, are a reflexology massage mat for your feel and a glute band.
I already own a couple of these sets. Based upon my brand preferences and fit preferences, I was undecided between Posies in Paris (Jessica Simpson brand) or Coral Kissed (Marika brand).
Which would (or did you) pick?
What Is Ellie?
Let’s first talk about what Ellie actually is. Ellie is a monthly activewear subscription with the option to just get the activewear or activewear and accessories and equipment.
You get to choose your outfit from at least 12-18 different options, with some being repeats from prior months.
There is also the ability shop previous collections (it does cost a bit more and only includes the clothing) and must have essentials that are all marked down significantly.
How Does Ellie Work?
Ellie chooses and outfit for you each month, but you have the ability to go in and change it or skip the month all together. You just need to log in between the 1st and the 4th of the month to do so.
I have not received any reminder emails to do this. So far, I’ve just remembered to check on the 1st of the month because I’m so excited to see what’s new, but it might be a good idea to set a reminder on your calendar.
How Much Does An Ellie Subscription Cost?
There are 3 different subscription options:
- The 2-Item plan is $39.95 a month and includes a top and bottoms.
- The 3-Item plan is $44.95 a month and includes a top, bottoms, and a sports bra.
- The 5-Item plan is $49.95 a month and includes a top, bottoms, a sports bra, and 2 pieces of accessories or equipment (like dry towels, a sports bag, workout bands etc.)
Remember, your first outfit is 25% off, regardless of which subscription you choose.
For me, it made sense to sign up for the 5-Item plan because I knew I wanted the 3 pieces of clothing. It’s only $5.00 more for the 2 additional items.
This is considerably less than other fitness wear subscriptions, so the question becomes, “How’s the quality?”

January 2021 Ellie Subscription Review
I ended up going with the Coral Kissed set this month and I love it! Instead of a sports bra, top and leggings, this set includes a tank, cardigan and leggings.
Marika Daily Tank Solid in Calypso Coral
This tank is such a pretty color! It reminds me of a shirt that I had years ago and wore all the time. Gotta love when clothing brings back happy memories!
It’s made of polyester and spandex and is incredibly soft with a little stretch.
The back had a fun criss-cross design. I always order my tops a size bigger because I prefer a looser fit. This one fits perfectly.
Marika Berlin Tummy Control Leggings
These are basic black leggings without any cut outs or designs on them. I’m actually glad because I could use some basic black leggings for running errands and such.
These have a power mesh-lined tummy control waistband. We’ll see how that goes. Most of my leggings roll down, which is so annoying.
I’m hoping as I continue to loose weight, it will get better.
Marika Traditional Cardigan with Roll Back Collar
I’m actually surprised by how nice this cardigan is. The sleeves are thinner and lightweight, but the collar and trim are thicker and textured.
It’s a bit cropped in the front and longer in the back. I don’t care for cropped sweatshirts, but this isn’t too bad.
I’m hoping it holds up in the wash better than some of the pullovers that I’ve gotten recently. They piled up quickly, although I can maybe blame the massive bottle of cheap detergent my fiancé bought, as well?
Balance Collection Reflexology Massage Mat
This massage mat is a unique addition to the box. I always wonder what Ellie will send as accessories as there are only so many small workout-focused items.
The purpose of this mat is to help relieve plantar fasciitis, improve circulation and reduce tension.
I’m not sure how to use it exactly and it doesn’t come with instructions. For now I just have it under my desk to rest my feet on while I’m working.
Marika Glute Band in Light
This is an exercise band specifically for helping you tone and strengthen your glutes.
I really do wish these items came with some exercises to do with them or that Ellie included a link to some exercises on their website for the items in each months box. It would be so helpful!
Once again I am super happy with my Ellie purchase! I still can’t believe what you get for only $50.
I have gotten to a point now that I know what brands work best for me and what sizes are most comfortable.
I’m looking forward to seeing the February collection!
