Where To Shop: Plus Size Active Wear

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!


Old Navy

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, especially the one that says “hustle” on it! Sizes go up to 4x (size 30), and prices are right around $25 for a piece.

Maurices

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).

Avenue

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!).

Evolve Fit Wear

This site carries Rainbeau curves and a couple additional companies that specialize in plus size activewear and they are super cute! Their sizes go up to 3x, and they have the most beautiful watercolor pastel leggings that I’ve ever seen. I need 10 pairs, please!

Forever 21+

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

Well, Torrid made a line of activewear that says “badass” on many of it’s pieces and I am ecstatic. I never knew I needed a sports bra that said ‘bad ass’ on it so bad. 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.

Rainbeau Curves 

I just heard about this company this year, and haven’t had a chance to purchase anything from them but their designs are promising! They have a really good selection, and specialize in athletic wear. Sizes go up to 32, and prices are around $30.

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!

    A few other indie retailers to check out: LineageWear (goes up to 4X), Fractal 9 (5X), Personal Record (4X). FWIW, I think all 3 mostly just do leggings, but still good resources to have.

    I have a few others to share ! Nordstrom has some great stuff. I buy mine when they have the semi annual sale and they are half off its by Zella but they run a size small in their yoga pants. If u splurged like I did and got a 150 dollar pair of no show yoga pants try Dear Kate and their underwear too I love them ! One other is addition Elle. Cute stuff sadly I make my boobs fit into the sports bras at lane Bryant no sudden moves or yoga that day lol the ones they make my size ( like two) look like regular bras and hurt. I want the forever 21 one I’m willing to stand and not go to dance class just to wear it lol

    Oddly, I’ve found Kohl’s to have a great selection, too! If you go on their site, there are 7-8 PAGES of plus size activewear! Whut. That never happens. Only downer is that the brand I like most stylistically (Gaiam) runs SUPER SMALL. Pricing at Kohl’s varies widely, their sales are AMAZING. I’ve been getting tops from $8-$11 (on sale)! They have a great range, from super cute strappy things to more modest options.
