Fatletic Clothing - Activewear for Sizes 24+

It's not a new misconception about fat people but it's one that still sadly exists.  Fat people do in fact exercise.  We don't always sit around eating junk food and even if we did, fuck you it's not your business.  But on the subject of working out I wanted to post about my favorite workout wear for sizes 24+.  I am a diehard yoga pant lover.  I wear them a lot.  More than I should but my comfortable ass doesn't care.  Over the years I have had many black workout pants with the same basic design and they worked great.  But Lane Bryant's pants always seems to sell out and discontinue as do the random lables.  Thankfully, so far, Old Navy has our back.  I was thrilled when I came across their Wide Leg Yoga Pants.   It has an elasticized waistband and front scoop pockets.  YES POCKETS!  The fabric is a medium weight cotton/spandex that has great stretch but great elasticity so they don't "relax" or get baggy.   I've now bought 3 pairs of these,  I told you I wear them more than I should, and I hope to continue to buy them. *cough* Don't discontinue these please. *cough*  Cost-$29.94

My next purchase for active wear from them was their sports bras.  I haven't owned a sports bra since high school and I am skeptical to buy any bra online.  I have a broad back and wasn't sure if the fabric would be supportive but stretch or if it would even fit.  To my extreme luck both styles of Old Navy's sports bra's have worked our great!
They have 2 different styles:

#1- The first Old Navy sports bra is a polyester/spandex mix in black and has a solid black front with racer back cut.  It's fully lined, has a banded elastic hem for support.  It truly has great support.  I'm big busted and sports bras are hit or miss for me.   I did some yoga moves, busting out my downward facing dog, and I give this my full approval.  Cost-$22.94

#2- The other Old Navy sports bra again has a polyester/spandex mix fabric in black with a scoop neck and a racer back keyhole detail.  There is built molded foam padding cups in the front which the other doesn't have.  The pads don't seem to have any affect on comfort.  The fit is great.   Both of these bra's are great quality.  Also I normally wear 5x in shops like Torrid and the 4x sports bra at Old Navy fits me perfectly.  Cost- $19.94
The last bit of my activewear review is the Foxy Cami from Torrid.  This is my new wardrobe staple.  It has adjustable straps, is long in length which I LOVE especially when I pair it with my workout clothes for yoga.  I grabbed 2 during their Haute Cash sale.  Like I said, wardrobe staple.  Cost-$18.50

Here are the pictures of these pieces on a size 24+ body with close ups of the backs of both the sports bras.

  1. I love Old Navy's workout clothes! Yay for finding some sports bras you like!
    PS, I thought I saw you in Fabric Depot a while back, and I was going to say hi, but I chickened out lol! Maybe it wasn't you.

    1. Omg you totally should have said hi! I go there quite a lot so it's very possible it was me! :)

  2. this was a great review shawna boo! I haven't own a sports bra since highschool, however with me dancing more, i think i'm gunna look into getting one. I love how it looks in the back on you. Thanks so much for this awesome review! Walmart.com used to have good workout clothes for our sizes. Per usual, alot of it discontinued. I got the best capri yoga pants from them for only $10!

    1. Thanks love! Yeah the sports bras are great and if you check out retailmenot.com I be you can find some coupon code to get a few more dollars off. ;) And yoga capri pants for $10?! Sign me up!

  3. Hmm, I may have to change my mind about buying plus size clothes from a store that will only sell them online if I can get sports bras for under $30. I just bought one but I'll have to keep this in mind next time I'm in need. Thanks for the great review!

  4. Leggings may be wearing for street and special instances; they are created from laces or good materials. It is not difficult to search an ideal option since they have different colors, material and sizes. In other case, there are many types when searching the good choice for details. More information is available on their web site at. Sportswear
