I am pretty fat. I would also like to work out. Why is finding
clothing so hard?

Listen. The average
American woman is a size 16, but a lot of workout brands stop
at an XL (usually a 12–14).
That means that if you’re an average American gal, and you need
workout gear that’s well-fitting and — dare I dream? — actually
cute, you’ve got a tough task ahead of you. Many of the most
popular and well-known purveyors of stretchy pants for athletic
adventures, like Lululemon (famously), GapBody, J.Crew, and
other straight-size athleisure lines don’t deign to dress
bigger butts — or, if they do, only go up to an XXL (roughly a
size 18–20). Even plus-size brands often stop at a 3X/24,
leaving anyone larger potentially pantless and definitely
frustrated. I’ve been wearing my faithful black Old Navy
compression leggings for years, but variety is the spice of
life — and my thin friends always have so many more options.
Still, now more than ever, there’s a growing selection of
plus-size workout gear. But I was skeptical — would they be as
cool as the pants my smaller friends can rock?
I LOVED the lined crotch (which means you can skip the undies
for hot yoga with no worries about flashing anyone), and though
these were very patterned, the pattern didn’t stretch weirdly
or become sheer when I pulled them on. These are expensive, but
very pretty, and felt high quality.
