After the images of Nike’s sports bra model Paloma Elsesser went viral, we knew it was only a matter of time before the brand would launch a plus-size activewear collection. In fact, you’re probably surprised that, until a few weeks ago, the fitness giant didn’t have any collections with bras extending past E or separates reaching above XL.
With the wellness and athleisure obsessions sweeping the country, it’s long overdue that brands start catering to women of all sizes. Ashley Graham, the first curvy cover star to grace Sports Illustrated‘s Swimsuit issue, said it best: “You can’t look at somebody and determine if they’re healthy or not. You can only hear it from their doctor. I promote healthy at every size, as long as you’re getting off the couch and moving your body.”
Get ready to sweat it out in style with these fashion-minded plus-size activewear brands.
