Get Up and At Em! Here’s Where to Score Plus Size Activewear

Looking to get a little active for the new year? Well we have rounded up some of the best retailers and brands to shop for plus-size activewear and leisurewear!

When the New Year begins the resolutions pour in and no resolution is more popular than getting in shape, getting active, and moving about. If you have committed to living an active lifestyle in 2018, that’s great, but you’re definitely gonna want to do it in style, and luckily there are more than a few brands who are giving us form, function, and fashion for our plus size activewear gear.

Now listen, plus size activewear has come such as long way from ridiculously oversized T-shirts, baggy sweatpants and beat up sneakers. These days activewear (or athleisure if you prefer) is just as stylish as regular clothing, meaning you can look polished and get active at the same time. Modern activewear styles are all about combining a streetwear aesthetic with functionality, while also skimming your curves, instead of relying on oversized silhouettes…

Which means we have options! To show off the bum or nah? Midriff or an activewear jumpsuit? Bold and bright leggings or sleek in black? Crop top or a cropped hoodie? Options, love… options.

    Great list, but there are more. If you’re looking for truly technical product that was built with the Athena and Plus Size Athlete’s chafing and sweating demands in mind, Rsport is the brand. http://www.Rsportlife.com

    Built from years in the Outdoor industry with no product built specifically for larger athletes – not just in size, but in performance expectation. Women at triathlons, marathons and crossfit events were cobbling together “something” that might work. I cringed and knew we could do better. Rsport was born.
