The Best (and worst) of Nike Plus Size

If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I’ve developed a deep and meaningful relationship with Nike. Nike has flown me to Paris, I’ve modeled for Nike and they’ve been a great sponsor at theCURVYcon.

Needless, to say I’ve worn a LOT of Nike Plus Size items in my professional and personal life. So, I feel pretty confident in my thoughts on what they do well for plus size bodies and where they fall short. Thinking of picking up some Nike Plus Size items? Here is what to order– and what to avoid.

For reference, I am 5’10 a size 18 on the bottom, a size 14 on top , my shoe size is 11W and my bra size is 40DD.

Does Nike Make Plus Size Clothes?

Yes, they do! Nike launched plus size in 2017. Nike plus is available in available in 1x-3x, which is the equivalent of a size 22/24. Here is a link to the current Nike Plus Size Line

Does Nike Have Plus Size Swimwear?

No. If you’re disappointed, I am right there with you. I swim laps almost 2-3 times per week and it’s a bummer that I can’t bring Nike into this part of my fitness routine. If you’re looking for Nike plus size swimsuits, I would recommend the chlorine resistant plus size swimsuits from swimsuits for all instead- available in size 8-34. This is me at a size 28 wearing a swimsuits for all chlorine resistant two piece.

What are the Best Nike shoes for plus size?

The best Nike Shoes for plus size are the Infinity React Flyknit 2’s. These shoes have a super supportive core that can take you from walking to running with ease. If you find Nike shoes to be too narrow, the soft mesh top with give you the stretch you need to accommodate wide feet. This shoe also comes in half sizes if you feel you need a little more room. I wear my Nike sneakers with leggings, jeans and dresses.

Here’s a Cute Nike Plus Size Outfit You may Like

I wear this two piece Nike outfit all the time. It’s the Nike Yoga Luxe Crop Top (Available in size XS-3X) paired with the Nike Yoga Luxe Legging (Available in Size XS-3X). When I order the crop top in a size down, I’m able to wear it with no bra. The leggings are high waist enough that this looks like one piece even though it’s two.  This set is so comfortable and weightless it feels so good to wear this in the summer months.

I’ll continue to update this post through the season. What questions can I answer for you?
