Plus-Size Outfits for Working Out

When it comes to activewear, the search is always on for something that’s loose enough to stretch in yet fitted enough to stay in place while you move. There’s no need to sacrifice style for comfort and freedom of movement, though. Whether you’re heading out for a jog or lifting weights at the gym, there are plenty of great plus-size outfits for working out. Read on to discover our best picks.

Leggings and a Long or Short-Sleeve Tee

This comfy combo is a great transitional outfit for on-the-go days because you can wear your plus-size leggings with a sports bra for your workout and then throw on a thin long or short-sleeve T-shirt for anything you have planned after. Wearing the long-sleeve version will also help to keep your muscles warm in cooler weather.

For maximum comfort and mobility, go for a pair of seamless leggings to wear with your women’s plus-size T-shirt. With a wide, elastic waistband and a generous amount of stretch, these workout pants will gently hug your figure without feeling tight. Thanks to the moisture-wicking fabric, you’ll stay cool and dry no matter the activity.

Compression leggings are another great choice for workouts. They’re soft, stretchy, and comfy with performance-ready details, like odor control and UV protection. Featuring compression mesh, these leggings offer a secure, streamlined fit. They also feature side pockets to stash your phone, wallet, and keys.

Yoga Pants and a Bomber Jacket

With a supportive waistband and a flat-lock seam that helps prevent chafing, there’s few things comfier to wear for a workout than Lands’ End yoga pants. They feature stretchy, breathable fabrics and hidden pockets to safely carry and store your on-the-go essentials. Yoga pants with a bootcut or flared design will not only add a touch of style to your outfit, but will also help to flatter the figure.

For before and after the gym, pairing your plus-size yoga pants with a bomber jacket is a simple and stylish way to dress up your workout look. To finish it off, add a few accessories and your favorite pair of shoes. Bootcut and flared yoga pants will look best with a sleek sneaker or understated pump. If you go for a more fitted pair of yoga pants, they’ll look great with boots.

Shorts and a Denim Jacket

Wearing biker shorts with a plus-size tank top, T-shirt, or sports bra is a great streamlined workout look for hot summer days. The best part is that you can easily style this outfit for a barbecue or coffee run afterward by adding a cropped or oversized denim jacket and a cute pair of slip-on shoes.

If you’re someone who prefers loose-fitting clothes, swap out the biker shorts for a pair of plus-size shorts, which will also work well for this casual ensemble. An A-line design will provide an especially flattering fit for everything from jogging to running errands.

A Track Jacket and Sweatpants

If you like to take your workout outdoors, a plus-size track jacket and sweatpants is a classic, retro combo that will help you beat the chill. A cotton-blend track jacket with a soft, fleece interior is an especially cozy fit.

The adjustable hood will offer extra coverage against the cold, while the ribbed hem and cuffs help to keep the warmth in. You can also keep your hands toasty warm in the generous kangaroo pockets.

To style your track jacket for a workout, wear it over a sports bra or T-shirt with a matching pair of soft sweatpants and active sneakers. This ultra-comfy combo can easily transition from your workout look to a work-from-home or lounging option. You can also wear it on grocery runs and shopping trips. With plenty of pockets from top to bottom, this look works well for running quick errands or long days when you’re constantly on-the-go.

A Polo Shirt and Skort

Who says you can’t look cute while working up a sweat? Combining a plus-size skort with a polo shirt will create a classic sporty outfit that will keep you comfy on and off the court. With the movement of a skirt and the coverage of a pair of shorts, a skort is a great option for a game of basketball, round of tennis, or your next dance class.

You’ll get plenty of wear out of a polo shirt since you can pair it with more than just a skort. It’ll look equally as good with shorts and sweatpants. Made from stretchy, wrinkle-resistant, moisture-wicking fabric, a polo shirt is a classic way to look stylish while staying cool and dry.
