What should I look out for?

We’ve compiled the key things you should consider while shopping Plus Size activewear so you’re supported and comfortable — whether you’re hitting the gym or rocking an athleisure look at Brunch.


Make sure your activewear fits well and isn’t too tight or loose. Stick with comfortable, buttery-soft materials that don’t restrict your movement. And for extra peace of mind, high-opaque finishes remove those pesky sheer moments — no VPL here!

Four-Way Stretch Fabric

Make sure you go for activewear with plenty of added stretch so that it can move and support you no matter what activity you undertake. The fabric should be able to stretch and support in all directions — that’s why it’s called four-way stretch.


Activewear should be made from sweat-wicking fabric to keep you cool and dry during your workouts. It expels it to the surface, allowing it to evaporate quickly — keeping you feeling light and cool for longer. Details like mesh panels and cropped lengths will also help regulate your temperature.
