Function & Style: Plus Size Activewear to Jumpstart Your Fitness Goals

Still keeping up with your pledge to get active this year? Need some help finding stylish workout gear? We've got some of our favorite plus size pieces & places to shop for your activewear.

Working out and getting fit on the quest to be healthier is great, but let’s be honest—you want to look totally cute while doing it. Long gone are the days when plus size women were relegated to wearing tons of bulky, oversized workout gear that only made them look bigger instead of flattering their curves.

Luckily modern plus size activewear successfully combines style and functionality, so that you can look street chic while your busting out some intense cardio. From sports bras and leggings to joggers and jackets, we have you covered with a round-up of key pieces you need to add to your shopping cart.

Check out this plus-size activewear round-up from some of the top retailers!

Also, the fiery orange color is a nice change of pace from the traditional black.

  1. I wish plus size clothes can look cute and affordable like the normale sizes. I don’t see why we cant look great and feel great at any age with what we wear not clothes that look like we are wearing maternity wear. Pennington and Marshalls are two stores
