plus size activewear Australia
As a curvy girl, whether you’re running, biking, walking or doing a spot of yoga, finding the right activewear is a must. For so long we were limited to cheap leggings that became see-through when we squatted, but now  there are so many options for us, it’s fun and exciting to shop for exercise gear.

I’ve done the hard work for you {no need to break a sweat}, and gathered all the best plus activewear brands in one spot. I also checked in with the other curvy Aussies to see what they’re wearing and loving, and this is what they’re loving. Active Truth was the top mention {also my choice for Activewear}, with many loving the reliability and the support it offers. Hine Collective and Embrace Active are two that are getting lots of  love too.

Active Truth / Sizes 6 to 26

I must confess, I am addicted to Active Truth and it’s where I get 80% of my exercise clothes. Among the curvy community, Active Truth is known for their exercise pants that don’t roll down {because don’t we all hate that!}, compression tights that keep everything supported as you move.
