We all know it can be tough to find the right Gym Wear when you’re plus-sized, but we don’t want you to feel bad about your body just because it isn’t super small. That’s why we put together this list of our 5 favorite gym wear looks inspired by plus-sized bloggers, YouTube stars, and celebrities including some of our own! Whether you want to get fit and get healthy or need some motivation at the gym, we’ve got something for everyone.
Tank Top With Capri
Gym wear can be intimidating. Going to gym class as a kid was bad enough, but trying to work out in front of everyone can put chubby girls in a psychological loop. When you’re overweight, it seems like everyone is paying more attention to your form and scrutinizing your body than they are their own performance. This not only makes you self-conscious but it also causes many overweight people to avoid going to the gym altogether (especially if they already have low self-esteem). So how do you get past these feelings? You simply find clothes that make you feel awesome so that when you wear them, all your mental baggage doesn’t affect your performance at all.
Maxi Skirt & Sports Bra
Who says a chubby girl can’t pull off a cute look in just a sports bra and maxi skirt? With that being said, I’m sure some of you have many reservations about showing up to your fitness class in such an outfit. Well, fear not, my friends, because you can wear just about anything to any exercise class. As long as you are comfortable with it, anyone who takes issue with what you’re wearing should probably focus on their workout instead of trying to find flaws in yours. Go for it, girlfriend, show ’em what you got!
Strappy And Loose
Don’t let your inhibitions keep you from looking fabulous in gym clothes. Exercising is about feeling good about yourself, beginning with feeling good in your gym wear. If you’re looking for loose-fitting or strappy pieces that show off your figure, look no further than these looks below. From sexy spandex to clingy knitwear, we’ve found inspiration for how to rock those gym clothes no matter what size you are. Whether you’re trying to lose weight or keep it on, we want all our readers to look their best, no matter their size!
Mesh Leggings & Oversized T-Shirt
If you’re not into going to a gym or working out in public, you might want to consider clothing that allows for extra movement. Oversized t-shirts and leggings made of mesh and lycra are your best bet. They look great when paired with Vans or other sneakers, so nobody can see your feet and won’t make any noises as you move around in them. Don’t worry about what kind of t-shirt it is — just make sure it has a loose fit. If you’re not comfortable wearing just a sports bra (many women aren’t), tank tops are also available with padding, so you don’t have to show off your belly when bending over to lift weights.
Do Knot Worry Be Trendy
There are so many different gym wear styles that it’s sometimes hard to figure out which is right for you. But if you want to make sure you find a trendy and cute style, stick with tight-fitting clothing and little details. A form-fitting top is great because it hides potential lumps or bumps while showing off your curves.
