Cute Plus-Size Activewear So You Can Look Stylish While You Sweat

There’s something to be said for wearing cute plus-size activewear. (Just hear me out.) I’m not someone who’s ever looked cute while exercising, due to the fact that I sweat like crazy and turn tomato red at the first sign of cardio. However, when I’m sitting on the floor stretching (Read: taking a little break), and I look in the mirror, it weirdly makes me feel better if I’m wearing something I look and feel good in. I’m not gonna lie—wearing the right sports bra and leggings makes me feel confident. That, in turn, makes me more likely to continue pushing through whatever workout to which I’ve subjected myself.

All that’s to say: Sometimes wearing cute activewear can be motivating. It’s the same concept as when you have your favorite outfit picked out for work, so it’s not as hard to get out of bed in the morning. I don’t dread working out as much when I have a workout outfit I’m excited to wear. (If you don’t ever dread working out, please let me know your secrets, thanks!!)

If you’ve ever felt anxious (or just, like, annoyed because plus-size shopping can be infuriating) about buying cute plus-size activewear, I’ve got your back. I picked out some of my favorite workout pieces to help get you started in your search. From tops and sports bras to leggings and shorts, I’ve compiled (what I believe is) a good list of options for everyone. Because if I’m gonna sweat, you better believe I want to look cute while doing it.
