Exercise Gear You Actually Want to Wear!

I have to say it - exercise gear can REALLY suck! Historically the options when you are above a size 14 are unattractive, uninspiring and SO unfashionable. But, things are changing and the fashion world is catching on to the fact that women of all sizes like to exercise (duh!) and look cute while we do it. So I have rounded up a few adorable options to make exercise exciting! I don't know about you but being motivated to put my exercise gear on is the biggest challenge - so having beautiful options makes all the difference.

These adorable 'Bright Spots' leggings are by Thunderpants, they are made in NZ and are the most beautiful cotton. I am wearing the size Large (16-18), they are available from size Small (8-10) to 2XL (24-26) for $78. I did yoga in them this morning, they don't squeeze you and they don't fall down! 


Lorien's zoo colouring tights

Thunderpants have also created the 'Lorien's Zoo' 3/4 tights (my next purchase) and you can buy a set of crayons from Thunderpants and COLOUR THEM IN! Available from size Small (8-10) to 2XL (24-26) for $68. Awesome Christmas present anyone?!


Love exercise tank

This cute tank is available in sizes Small to XXL (Approx 10-18), I love the loose fit and the curved hem, oh and the price! You can buy it from The Warehouse for $12! 


loose jogger pants

The Active Intent Stretch Woven Capri's from The Warehouse are also a great option if you want a looser style pant when you're exercising. Sizes Small - XXL (Approx 10-18) $21.75.


'The Ultimate 3/4 tight' in Midnight Palm are from Australian Brand Active Truth - who offer all sorts of great prints in sizes Small-3XL - which is sizes 8-26! The buzz from customers on the internet is that these are great quality, super comfy and well worth the price tag of $104.99 (AUD).


Michele Bridges Active

Michele Bridges has recently created an exercise line which is being stocked in Ezibuy from sizes 8-18. I'm loving the mesh back panel in the MB Active T-Shirt, $29.99 - available in three colours. 


Rainbeau Curves

Rainbeau Curves is an American brand which now ships to NZ and they have all sorts of fun prints and options in sizes 14-28, The whole outfit above costs $90 NZ - not bad! 


I am in love with the new range from Running Bare, available in sizes 8-22 the options are fashionable and fun. I want it all! These are some of my favourites.

Yes you CAN work out and you CAN look great while you do it! Let me know which of these options you'll be shaking it in this summer!
