Guess what? I’m a size 14/16 woman, I like to workout, and contrary to popular opinion, I don’t want to wear all black to the gym. So often workout clothes aimed at the XL and up crowd are meant to hide you and slim you down, but what if I want to look cool at the gym and show off my personal style? I’m not actually interested in putting myself in a black catsuit, so bring on the prints, crop tops, and all the color, and when it comes to sports bra support or leggings that won’t roll down, I get very serious. Read on for my size-friendly workout, or just plain athleisure ;), selects + steal my look above!
