How To Choose The Perfect Plus Size Activewear Clothes

Capsule Wardrobe Reading How To Choose The Perfect Plus Size Activewear Clothes 4 minutes Next What to pack for your city break.

If you haven’t noticed by now, activewear has become the newest fashion statement. In the past we had to choose between style and practicality but not anymore. After all, there is nothing better than trendy, comfortable clothes to boost your confidence. Do you struggle to find trendy, reliable plus size activewear? Look no further, we've got your back! From matching sets to sweatshirts and plus size workout leggings, we have an amazing range of women’s athletic wear here at Wardrobe plus. 

It’s all down to what you feel comfortable wearing, we’ll start with the pants. Whether you are a loose fit tracksuit person or a tight leggings woman we all love to look good while feeling comfy. Leggings have been around for a long time and it’s been a constant question of whether it’s acceptable to be worn as pants, we say ABSOLUTELY! It’s all about finding the right fit for you and of course if you want to take it up a notch with bright and funky designs we say go for it! Another style we love is the flare style activewear which is a great option if you didn’t feel comfortable in leggings.


Next we will take a look at activewear tops. Again, whether you prefer tight or loose, we have plenty of options available to us to ensure we feel good in the clothes we wear whether we are heading to the gym, going for a walk or just heading to the shops. We can go sleeveless, loose, tight or cropped depending on what you feel comfortable in. Pay attention to how your clothes make you feel. Test them out and make sure to find outfits that meet all your exercise needs. Investing in quality pieces that will last you a long time is also key. Bringing colour and print in to your activewear tops really brightens up the outfit if you don’t want to go with a full matching set. A lot of women tend to wear darker colours when exercising, however, bright colours can really improve your mood psychologically too. 

Living in Ireland, we know that there is a short window of about two weeks in summer that we can leave the house without any layers so we always have to be prepared. Heavy, chunky layers might seem like a great idea when you are leaving the house, but in reality, when you start moving your body temperature will increase and we’ll soon wish we left them at home. We have some great options from hoodies, to lightweight jackets and gilets. Perfect for layering but won’t hold you up when you start warming up. 

Looking for an activewear co-ord? Matching sets have really taken this season by storm, and we know exactly why! There’s nothing that makes you feel more ready to take on the day than looking fantastic in your new matching activewear set. We know this at Wardrobe Plus and have got you covered!
