Plus-Size Workout Clothes: Brands That Are Leading The Way

Posted: Updated:

We all know the joy of new (and cute) workout wear, and the motivation that comes along with it.

But for many years, the only option plus-size women had for workout wear, was to pick up loose-fitted stretchy pants and a baggy tee. I don't know about you, but I do not find that very motivating. That's because there was a misconception that fuller women did not have any interest in working out. And so, as the market didn't see the demand, there was no supply.

However, the growing awareness of "healthy at any size" has forced brands and retailers to step up. Women of all sizes are excited to stay healthy and be active, and every woman deserves the right to feel great in what she is wearing. Now we have an exciting array of activewear to choose from for yoga, running, water sports and even golf.

Hopefully, with the help of these brands, we will finally put to rest the myth that plus-size women are not active, and continue to motivate women of all sizes to participate in fitness in ways they never could have imagined before.

Get inspired, excited and motivated by these brands and the plus-size babes rocking their adorable fitness gear:

Every woman, with no exceptions, deserves to feel comfortable in her own body, and to believe that the world is made just as much for her as the next person. That's why with "My Curves Have No Bounds," we're going to get real and talk about our bodies, what we put on them, and how we feel about everything in between. We want to break down the barriers and outdated notions that plus-size women encounter everyday. So check back every other week for more from "My Curves Have No Bounds," by Amanda Montgomery of Latest Wrinkle.
