So, I haven’t told you, but I got a trainer! Woot! Since I sit at my desk all day, I wanted to do something that got me out of the house, helped me with my strength and flexibility! Interestingly enough, I realized that I needed to up my workout gear so I thought about where I could snatch up a few great pieces to help me out!
Now, finding cute AND functional pieces can be a BIT of a challenge, BUT hope is not lost! There are actually a few great brands that are here to help and I thought to share a few of them with you! I know some of you hear what I am saying. The struggle is real! So, because I love you ladies, I’m sharing a few plus size activewear brands (and retailers) that blend style with function. No more of baggy sweats and t-shirts being our only option.
Are you ready?
