Plus size active wear! athleisure! Sitting on your couch in dirty yoga pants! Whatever it is you like to do in “active” clothes is up to you. The beautiful thing is that the options for plus size people are getting a lot cuter and more affordable too! Thank goodness, because I’ve been feeling pretty left out from the whole “yoga mom” trend.
You’ve all been asking for a master-post of workout-worthy and super comfy daily wear looks! So here we go! I can remember when I was around 20 and not able to find any yoga pants in an XXL. We’ve come a long way! Here’s a list of plus size active wear with lots of options, up to size 34!
I’ve become quite the sucker for Old Navy lately. The basics are just so cute and the prices are usually really reasonable even when things aren’t on sale (though there is almost always a sale). I love the look of their plus size active wear because it is simple and clean and while I’ll obviously wear my yoga pants all over town, I also feel just as comfy laying in them for a long weekend. I’m a really big fan of their muscle tees as well! Sizes go up to 4x (size 30), and prices are right around $25 for a piece.
If you’re not from the midwest US you may have never heard of this retailer, but they’re gaining some recognition for their evolving plus size line. My favorite plus size active wear that they offer is definitely the leggings options. They have cute patterns and varying styles, and all of them come with a large waist band (which I appreciate). Each piece is right around $30, and sizes go up to a 4 (or size 28).
ASOS’s “curve” collection carries plus size pieces form their own brand, and other brands like Puma, South beach, and River Island as well! They have a wide price range with some pieces starting at $16, and some going up to around $100
Avenue actually recognizes that people over a size 24 want to wear comfy yoga pants and stretchy jackets, and even makes some super cute things! I own a pair of leggings from Avenue, and they have lasted me quite some time (about 3 years now!) so I’m a fan! Sizes go up to 32, and prices are around $40 a piece (but there is always a sale going on!).
If you’re a small fat (under size 24), you’ve no doubt seen the new Forever 21 line of active wear. I have absolutely died over it. You guys, I cannot justify buying every piece in this line (because let’s be real, where am I going to wear that… not the gym!), but damn it if I could I would. This line is just stylistically so on point. They’ve got those little multi-strap numbers that they’ve been selling to skinny girls over on Lulu-fatphobe for years, and they even made stuff in marble print. If you can wear these sizes, do us all a favor and buy all of it, ok? Prices are around $20, sizes up to 3x.
Torrid is a plus size staple, so it’s no surprise that their active wear line is on-point. Leggings, bras, bike shorts – you name it, they’ve got it. The pieces are reasonably priced, and are true to Torrid’s sizing, which takes out a lot of the guesswork for how leggings are going to fit! Sizes from 10-30.
I use to assume that Nordstroms was exclusively for bougie straight-sized white girls – boy was I wrong! Nordstroms has some incredible yearly sales and includes brands like Good American that carries sizes up to 6XL and Nike which carries up to a size 3X. If you’re not shopping their sales, it can be a bit pricey but the quality more than warrants the sometimes spendy price tags.
This is another shop I just heard about! I’ve heard really good things about them, and all of their active/lounge wear looks really comfy! I can’t wait to give this place a try!
Girlfriend is an incredible new plus size active wear company that I’m loving! Their sizing is super inclusive with leggings up to a size 6X and bras up to a size 3X. Even better? All of their items are made from recycled plastic bottles and come in LOADS of fun colors.
Leggings sell for around $70 and sports bras are right around $40 – and they’re 100% worth the price!
I’ve been asked a few times to do a review of sports bras, so this post really inspired me to make a little list of bras I’ll be trying! I’ll let all of you know as soon as that review is out, and if you have any other active wear retailers you’d like me to try please let me know! I hope you found something awesome!
