100 lb. Club - plus size exercise clothes?
04-19-2003, 07:58 AM
Just wondering where you find plus size exercise clothes? I have several unitards, but the store I bought them at went out of business.
I know about Junonia, but their prices are way out of my budget.
I could just wear shorts and a t-shirt, but feel better working out in "workout clothes." I can move around more easily (does that make any sense?)
I've tried Walmart , kmart and Target without any luck.
Why is it overweight people are told to exericse, but the above stores only sell TINY exercise clothes?

Here is a site I've been looking at:

Sorry....can't be of much help. I've always had pretty good luck at K-Mart and WalMart, but maybe that's because there are lots of fat chicks in my neck of the woods!

i get an email from the skinny daily post every day, and one day she suggested that athletic jerseys are really good for workouts -- they breathe, they don't cling, they cover, and they come in huge sizes.

Yeah! I agree with Holly! I work out a lot in my Ole Miss football jersey, especially when it's hot. It's an XXL and it covers my big ol' behind pretty well.

Just My Size makes a good line of Plus-sized sports clothes - shorts and sports bras and such. I've found them at Walmart.
If you're talking about leotards and things like that, though, I don't know.
Hope that helps.

Target just had them on sale Sherry. They are under the brand name Moret. Best sports bra I ever bought--so when they were on sale I got 2 more & a tank top w/a built in bra. If they fit me, they will fit anyone. Their sizes go up to a 3X.

suzie... what size are we talking about here? and what do you like to wear? sweats? shorts? leotards?
the hanes outlet in totowa [at least, i think it's in totowa] has some stuff, but not over 3x

Mossimo at Target has a great line of exercise clothes.
BUT I encourage you to throw a temper tantrum whenever you see the same brand and style Mossimo Misses exercise clothes go on sale but the plus size stays the same price.
I find this to be a complete and utter outrage. It totally takes advantage of the fact that plus size exercise clothes are hard to find. :soap:

Jessica - I COMPLETELY agree!!!!

I'll have to go back to Target. I missed the Mossimo exercise clothes...I love their pants in that brand.
I get totally pissed when stores put the "regular' sized clothes on sale, but not the plus ones too!
There was a maternity store that did this-they only sold the plus sizes online, not in the store, and then only put the regular sized clothes on sale. Pissed me off!!
Thanks for all your ideas. I really appreciate it. I'm mainly looking for unitards, but leggings/sports bras would also be great.
