Help a reader out? Looking for plus sized workout wear…..

A blog reader asks, ” I can’t find good workout clothing (ie trisuits, yoga pants, etc) in my plus size.  Where can I get some?”

Are you a plus sized endurance athlete? Where do you shop? What do you like?

I’d recommend checking out the Athena traithletes group on Facebook and also the Fit Fatties

Also follow the discussion on our Facebook page.

  1. My two favorite brands – Zella at Nordstrom and Champion at Target – both carry plus sizes. My biggest challenge is bras – Moving Comfort works for me, but some women need even more support.

  2. Wow, this has been my dilemma for the past few weeks! I teach group fitness but I am a bigger lady. I wear Old Navy a lot and still have a lot of their clothing!

  3. Old Navy is usually my go-to. I’m a size 20 and I fit in their XXL straight sizes (in stores). Junonia also has fantastic stuff, but are more expensive (they seem to last forever though!)

  4. I just recently started up a company for plus-sized women’s sportswear myself. Take a look at our website – – we only have a very small collection right now, but there’s new stuff coming this fall!

  5. I go to Addition Elle, the price point is a bit high but the quality is quite good.
    I’ve also snagged decent running tights and yoga pants at Wal-Mart.

    My best workout bra I got at a bra store and foolishly clipped out the tags without writing down the brand 🙁 that bad boy is engineered for awesomeness.

  6. I wear men’s basketball shorts and an assortment of athletic t-shirts (unisex cut, loose as possible) from different events. I’ve found some Champion bras that are good enough. I tried on some of the recommended sports bras for larger women, but they felt more uncomfortable to me. I’m okay with a little bounce, for as much as I run.
