Because fitness comes in all shapes and sizes.

The term plus-size is far from perfect and if we had our way, it would be sent to room 101 along with weight loss lollipops and cosmetic surgery adverts during Love Island.
To us, clothes are clothes and sizes don’t need segregating – after all, healthy is an outfit that looks different on everyone.
However, the increase in the conversation around plus size activewear has had one effect for the better: the fitness industry is finally becoming more inclusive by designing activewear for all shapes and sizes.
[Ed’s Note: retailers who offer a plus size collection commonly have a starting size range from anything from a 14 up to a size 20.]
Earlier this year, it was announced that Nike were rolling out rolling out plus size fitness wear.
While Adidas recently followed suit and made their range of gym wear more size inclusive, finding gym wear in diverse sizes that are functional and stylish can be as imaginable as a fiftieth burpee.
However, if you know where to look you’ll find that there are actually several activewear lines aimed at plus size women who want – and deserve – to look and feel great while training.
The kit is also practical – because no one likes doing ab crunches with a zip daggering into their lower back or burpees with a stray bit of underwiring stabbing their left boob.
So if you’re shopping for plus size activewear that’s as good as your jump squats, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve rounded up some of the best plus size activewear out there for your perusal.
Be warned – it’s all amazing.
