The Chicest Plus-Size Workout Pieces to Take You from the Gym to Brunch
Traditionally, dressing for a rigorous sweat session means an oversize tee and slouchy sweats. But that doesn't have to be the case. We're challenging you to step up your style with breezy chic tanks, sleek embossed leggings, and mesh sports bras that are both sexy and supportive. The best part? They're flattering as they are comfortable. Swap these pieces into your gym rotation stat for a put-together look that supports, skims your curves, and can take you from the gym to anywhere you need to go after (ah, the beauty of athleisure). Shop our favorite picks, starting with these cool Forever 21+ marble-print leggings above ($18 to $25; forever21.com).
City Chic Sports Bra
Looking for major support? Look no further. This bra is comfy with its padded straps and moisture-wicking fabric, while the mesh inserts give it a cool-girl feel.
Full Beauty Sport Tank
Made with ultra-soft, breathable jersey, this tank is great for a sweat session and can easily take you to lunch. Just tuck it into a cute skirt and you're good to go.

Lane Bryant Shorts
A pop of fushia adds interest to an otherwise plain pair of shorts. Style it with a cool printed crop top or a solid tank (depending on your style) and you've got yourself a winning look.
