Champion Jogbra Plus 9 inch Inseam Short: Womens


From A SheFinds Reader: Do you know where I can get workout shorts and tops for plus-sized women?

The Answer: Is it just me, or is athletic apparel for us big girls a tad hard to find? I checked out the biggies (no pun intended): Nike, Reebok,

Adidas and Russell. All sell some women’s wear in size XL, but you have to click on a specific item and hope it’s one that comes in your size. But Dick’s Sporting Goods makes it easy on us and has a large selection of tops, some shorts and plenty of other bottoms in its “plus sizes” section. Lane Bryant probably the most recognizable name for the size 14 and over crowd, has an impressive selection as well. There aren’t any shorts sold on LB’s website though, at least not this time of year, but there are a number of tops to choose from. Plus we found you a deal: Save 20% on any order at The Danskin jog brasicon offer a fair amount of support- good for low impact cardio, not a marathon.

Lastly, Champion Plusicon lives up to its name at

icon where you’ll find a good selection of extended sized lingerie and athletic options.
