Stylish stuff that won’t ride up during workouts? Yes, please.
And it might be time to check out some awesome plus-size gear.
And btw, “plus-size” doesn’t just mean bigger.
According to Rachel Blumenfeld, founder of Manifesta, a company that makes workout apparel for curvy athletes, her customers want things like fabrics that look great at any size, reinforced waistbands, roomier pant legs, and armpit holes that allow easy movement without showing too much skin. In short, clothes designed for their bodies and their proportions that make exercising comfortable and fun.
