Weight and Resistance Training - Work out clothes

View Full Version : Work out clothes

Does anyone have ideas of where to purchase work out clothes that are made for size 18 not an xs? I have looked at adidas and nike and they say they are size 18 but the bust is 36". I don't think so. I have sweats but would like something nicer to make me feel good. Thanks for your help in advance!

Lol... I know what you mean. I have had good luck finding clothes at Target... Stretchy yoga type pants, sports bras, etc. I think Kohl's has an active section, too.

I looked at Dick's Sporting Goods and Olympia the other day and found nothing... it was too limited and too over priced.

Target has some decent work out clothes.

yeah, I would suggest target too. I found a pair of large workout pants, very nice, on the clearance rack for like 8 bucks or something like that. Surprisingly, I also found a neat pair of pants at my local drug store for 9.99, lol. They are perfect for working out. I always just wear plain tank tops for shirts.

Try www.womanwithin.com or www.jms.com. I have ordered from both of these catalogs. You can order either online or they will send you a catalog. The products are very roomy, they have all sizes, and their prices are reasonable. They also have a lot of work out bras and shoes as well.

I don't like to wear sweats when I am exercising because I get too hot. I prefer to wear shorts and t shirt.

Junonia might do, although their smallest bust is 40-42". I figured I'd tell you that before you go look at the site. They have a great selection of workout wear.


That's a link to the size chart, which you might want to check first.

Also try onehanesplace.com (http://www.onehanesplace.com) They carry Champion brand workout stuff, and have a wide range of sizes.

Oh I would second any champion stuff. I love champion :)

Wanted to add the website for champion stuff exclusively, www.championcatalog.com. They just sent me an email about their tshirts being on sale.

Oh also I didn't notice your weight previously, Sports Authority does carry some stuff in size XL (which fit me). I bought some nice nike running pants from them on sale!

Thanks for all the suggestions. I will definately look at Target and some of the other suggestions. In doing a search I found some active wear at JCPENNEY. I got workout capris and a couple tops. They were on sale. They looked cute! Hope they look cute on me. I have been going to the gym with a friend that just needs to tone. No weight issues, so I needed something to make me feel better. She has nice workout clothes. Again, thanks for all the help and suggestions. I will check them out.
