Here are the activewear outfit choices that are available for May 2021 at Ellie. There are 14 outfits to choose from this month. Some 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 May 4.
There’s a good mix of warm and cool weather options this month.
The accessories this month, if you have a 5-piece subscription, are a massager and set of bands. Once again, because I have very similar items from previous boxes, I decided to stay on the 3-item plan.
May 2021 Ellie Outfit Choices
The outfit choices this month are:
I’m a little torn this month. Last month I chose the Stargazer set because it was something I could wear to lounge around the house in.
I think Paradiso is so pretty but only have a couple of shorts sets so I’m leaning towards Wildlife. Or, I might skip this month to save money since I have so many workout sets now and haven’t been working out since we’ve been displaced from our home temporarily.
We keep talking about joining the YMCA among other things, so I hope to be back to working out regularly very soon and a new, cute set would come in handy, of course.
Ahh, it’s such a hard choice!
Which set would (or did) you pick?
Update: I went with the Wildlife set!
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. However, now that I’ve been subscribing for over a year, a lot of the accessories are items similar to what I’ve already received so I cut back to 3-items sometimes.
This is considerably less than other fitness wear subscriptions, so the question becomes, “How’s the quality?”

May 2021 Ellie Subscription Review
Jessica Simpson Mackenzie Sports Bra in Black Mystic Zebra
Ellie doesn’t seem to offer high-impact sports bras often, so I was really happy that this set came with one. It does have a 2-inch band for extra support, as well.
As always, the material is very soft and comfortable. The front is a scoop neck and the back is mesh with a keyhole style opening.
If you’re questioning if the price of Ellie is worth it, this sports bra is $45.00 alone on the Jessica Simpson website. That’s what I paid for the bra, shorts and top combined!
Jessica Simpson Tummy Control Bermuda Shorts in Black Mystic Zebra
I really like that Ellie is offering more shorts in this style. Not only are these great for working out in, but you can easily throw a sweatshirt on and lounge in them, as well.
These are more high-waisted and have a longer, 7-inch inseam, hence the Bermuda name. There is a small key pocket in the inner waistband.
I like the feel of the material, the fact the waistband doesn’t roll over easily, and the bit longer style.
This pair of shorts is $50 on the Jessica Simpson website.
Jessica Simpson Excel Active Tank in Heather Ombre Blue
First, I’m not sure why this is called “ombre” or “blue” as it appears to be a more solid gray to me?
I’ve gotten this same tank top in my set in February 2021. That one is the shade purple heather. I should also note, that I also received the same shorts as these in that set, but in the purple heather cobra color.
It’s very soft, has a mesh keyhole opening in the back and is a nice length to cover the waistband of the shorts.
I love this set! Not only is it a fun, pretty design, but it’s so soft and such good quality.
As for the value? If I were to have purchased these three pieces separately on the Jessica Simpson website, I would have paid $135.00!
