Whether you’re heading back to your weekly workout class, starting at a new gym or just want to get that gym luxe look, it’s the perfect excuse to treat yourself to a new selection of plus size workout clothes.
Exercising gives you a serious endorphin boost whether that’s an intense 10 minute sweaty session or a scenic stroll in the countryside, your mood will definitely be boosted. We’re all for how exercising makes you feel!
If you’re after a fresh new pair of gym leggings or you need a supportive sports bra, we’ve got a wide range for you to choose from.
How To Find The Best Activewear?
- Check the thickness and stretch of the fabric – When you’re investing in new workout leggings it’s essential to make sure the fabric is thick enough so it’s not see through but also stretchy enough for ultimate comfort as you move about. If you’re getting sweaty you want it to be thick enough to withstand a good amount of sweat.
- A supportive sports bra is key – Curvy women are often blessed with bigger busts which means they need extra support to feel secure, especially for cardio based workouts – we want to feel snug and not have to worry about falling out mid workout! Finding a supportive sports bra is key to setting yourself up for your exercise.
- Reduce chafing – Chafing can be extremely painful and it’s not something you want to stop you from cutting your exercise early. The best way to minimise it happening is reducing skin-on-skin contact by wearing leggings or knee length cycling shorts.
- Breathable fabric – You’re going to get hot whatever exercise you’re doing especially if it’s already warm outside so you want breathable fabric to let air get in.
