Larger Lady Lycra

Finally, some lycra for the larger ladies. Taking Shape, a clothing company based out of the UK is now offering an active wear line that comes in sizes 14-26. Anyone in that range can rest easy, they now have something to work out in besides that extra large team-building camp shirt. takingshapeplussize While I don’t really buy the claim that they’re the FIRST UK company to offer plus-size active wear, it’s still nice that there’s another option out there. The more clothing companies that offer plus-size sports wear, the more it will de-stigmatize the gym as a haven for skinny minis. Larger ladies want to work out too! takingshapeplussize2 The line has a great selection of clothes: pants, crops, tanks, T-shirts, vests, and jackets – all of them plus sized, all of them designed for fitness. It’s good that a company has realized that women of all shapes and sizes like exercising, not just fit bits. It’s also nice that the clothes are actually somewhat stylish, if you’re going to be sweating profusely, there’s no reason you can’t look good while doing it. takingshapeplussize4
