Curvy girls, rejoice! No longer do we have to work out in baggy tees and sweats! Fitness gear companies are beginning to recognize that plus-size women can be active, healthy individuals and are creating garments that employ high-tech fabrics, sleek style and impressive design details to support every inch of our curves.
Lola Getts caters to the curvy girl with stylish active wear in sizes from 0 (14-16) to 2 (22-24). On the signature piece, the Lola Tee, seaming and color blocking create a sleek silhouette, while those who may be uncomfortable showing their upper arms will appreciate the longer sleeve. There’s also a brilliant range of tanks, including a baby doll style that skims over bellies without looking bulky. Lola’s bottoms are made of compression fabric and come in various lengths; best of all, their design prevents camel toe. Genius!
Plus-size staple Lane Bryant is known for their chic blouses, brilliant denim and sexy lingerie, but they also have quality active wear. Their signature line consists of yoga pants, running shorts and tops that all have fun details like glitter insets and piping for sizes 14 through 28. This printed racer back tank is perfect for spring and summer!
Phat Buddha continues to make amazing yoga pants and sports bras that fit a range of sizes.
