Frequently Asked Questions



What's Ellie?

Welcome! Ellie is a curated monthly activewear subscription. 

On the first of each month, we debut three new unique outfits. If none of the options excite you, you can simply skip that month. Just log into your account by the 4th of that month and you will not be charged. 

We offer three subscription types:

  • 2 items - includes 2 apparel items (top & bottom)
  • 3 items - includes 3 apparel items (top, bra & bottom)
  • 5 items - includes 3 apparel items + 2 accessories/products/equipment

Your personal subscription renews on the same date each month, so you always know what to expect!


Can I Skip A Month?

Sure, all subscribers can skip a month between the 1st - 4th of every month. Simply log into your account and select Skip A Month. On the 5th you will no longer be able to skip the month, and you will be charged on your recurring charge date (the day of the month you signed up on). If you signed up between the 1st and 4th of the month, your recurring charge date will automatically be changed to a date between the 5th - 8th, so you have time to see the collections and make your selection. 


Can I Switch My Outfit?

Each month on the 1st of the month you will see that our team has preselected an outfit for you to receive. Don't love the preselected outfit? No worries! You have the ability to login to your account and switch your outfit. Please note outfits are reserved on a first come first serve basis, it is possible for outfits to sell out. You have until the day before your bill date to login to your account and switch your outfit, however, we recommend doing it between the 1st - 4th of each month to ensure you get the outfit you want. 


When do I get charged each month?

Your credit card is charged on the same day of the month that you originally signed up. Three-month subscribers are charged on the same day every three months.

Customers who originally purchased on the 1st-4th of the month will process between the 5th-8th, for all future months. This is to provide you plenty of time to review the collections and update your account when necessary.

If you are having any issues, please feel free to contact Customer Care.


Can I cancel my Ellie subscription?

Of course! You should only be an Ellie subscriber if you want to be. Cancellation requests must be made at least 5 days prior to your billing date to ensure your box is canceled for that month. Simply reach out to our Customer Service team via email at or by phone at 1-844-338-5044.

Any requests made less than 5 days prior to your bill date, or after it, will take effect the following month.


How do I manage my subscription?

You're in control! Manage your subscription by logging in (at the upper right corner of the website) with your email and password. Once you're in, you'll be able to change your size preferences, your address, credit card info, and more!


How Do I Switch My Outfit?

  1. Login to your account.
  2. Select your subscription from the top left corner drop down (image below).

  3. Once you have selected your subscription from the drop down you will be able to preview the other outfits, and once you find the one you love, click "SELECT"

  4. Confirm your selection

  5. You will receive a confirmation email once the switch has been completed. 


Why do I have two subscriptions?

Choosing more than one outfit from the current month's box options will always create an additional subscription. Is this what happened? If you believe you created two subscriptions in error, please contact our Customer Service team immediately at (844) 338-5044 to cancel the duplicate subscription. We unfortunately can not cancel the order, but you are more than welcome to ship a duplicate subscription back to us for a full refund. 


I signed up for the 3-Month subscription. When will I be charged again?

After your first 3 months, your subscription will automatically renew every 3 months on the same date you originally purchased, and at the same price you originally paid. If you wish to switch to monthly payments, please contact Customer Care between the 1st and 4th of the month.
