Plus Size Workout Clothes: My Favorite Plus Size Gym Leggings!

August 7 2014 | CeCe Olisa

There is nothing more annoying that burning a hole through your leggings. In the beginning of my Plus Size Fitness journey, I’d just buy cheap fashion leggings from wherever. I’d workout in them, work a hole right through the inner thighs and then go buy more (augh!). Over time I learned that there are benefits to ordering plus size workout tights/gym leggings. Its taken some time but I’ve finally got a solid collection of plus size workout leggings. Here are my faves:

Gym leggings are usually made of a more slick/slippery material which means they’ll hold up better against inner thigh “chub rub” and last longer. There are also great functional pockets in workout tights that hold things you may need during your workout like keys/phone/lip gloss (maybe that’s just me lol) anyway, if you don’t want to carry a purse, these pockets come in handy. Keeping your fashion leggings and gym workout leggings separate also makes them last longer because you’re not doubling up on usage.

I’m so excited that plus size workout tights are finally starting to come in fun colors/designs. Here’s a quick video lookbook with my five favorite plus size gym tights/leggings.

Let me know which ones you like best?

    Cece, I think Target’s line deserves an honorable mention. They’re half the price and hold up pretty well. I sometimes have mine for two yrs and I wear them OFTEN. They go up to a size 2x and I’m a size 22/24 and they fit comfortably. None the less, these are finds. Gonna look into the galactic leggings 🙂

    Hello

    I had a bit of trouble with lane brayant ones. Either too long or doesn’t fit correct. Old navy pants always gap in the front for me. Again it’s my height, you have the perfect height not to have these problems. Let’s see I just got a new pair from nordstrom anniversary sale. Zella if I’m not mistaking. Also I have a pair coming from dear Kate. Very pricy but they don’t show anything And have built in underware. So yes I paid the $100 plus lol. I think all of yours are so cute. You have to try the Zella ones at nordstrom I have two pair now. They go through cycling, yoga and dance class. Great post.

    The main problem I have with leggings is that these new yoga stretch band types roll off my belly as soon as I move. Does anyone else have this issue?

    Does anyone have trouble with pants sliding down during exercise? I’m always pulling them up! 🙂 I’m happy to have this problem but want to be more comfortable. Thank you

      Size down! I bought my regular size and had the same issue, I sized down and they work fine. I think it may be a difference in the material, fitness stuff has more stretch so that may be the problem. 🙂

    The Old Navy “splattery” ones are everything. They are hands down my favorite amongst all my workout pants.

    A lot of of whatever you claim is astonishingly accurate and it makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light before. Your piece truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this particular topic goes. Nonetheless at this time there is one particular point I am not too comfortable with and while I make an effort to reconcile that with the main idea of your position, let me observe what all the rest of your visitors have to say.Well done.
