And here’s where to buy it
If you’re a plus size woman buying exercise clothes, these days there’s little choice past shapeless leggings and oversized t-shirts – and don’t get us started on sports bras. God forbid you should have support if your bust is bigger than a size B.
But that’s all about to change, thanks to Nike’s brand spanking new plus size range, which goes from sizes XL to 3XL, with sports bras going up to a 38E. Result.
In a statement, Nike recognised ‘that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever. In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is.
‘The days where we have to add ‘female’ before ‘athlete’ are over. She is an athlete, period. And having helped fuel this cultural shift, we celebrate these athletes’ diversity, from ethnicity to body shape.’
The sports brand chose UK influencers Daniella Vanier and Grace Victory to front the campaign, and we think they style the clothes out beautifully.
As you might expect, the news went down rather well, with people taking to Twitter to thank Nike for finally allowing women over a size 16 to exercise in Nike styles.
The range is available to buy in store and online now. Now hopefully it’s only a matter of time before other fitness brands follow suit…
