Plus size workout gear

I'm sure this has been covered before but I couldn't see a recent thread. I was wondering where people over a size 18 buy their workout gear? Im a 22 and currently tend towards next but selection is limited. I'm never impressed by Evans and although there are pages and pages on simply be/very etc it's all a bit uninspiring. Are there any secrets or is there a general assumption that fat women don't exercise? (In fairness I haven't done any exercise since 6 weeks pregnant and baby is now 5 weeks old blush

I buy mine from sainsburys ( they go up to size 22). It's very good value which us useful if you intend to shrink out of it smile

Sainsburys and M&S for me. The nice stuff in Sainsburys sells out quite quickly and just the boring stuff is left sometimes but they do get nice stuff in.

I hadn't thought of m&s. Will be in one today-I'll have a look. Cheers!

Nike sell up to a 22. Sports direct have larger sizes. That fabletics which is a subscription service have some nice bits. Also gap sell up to a 22/24

Does Fabletics go up to a 22? I assumed it wouldn't. Not keen on the subscription bit though. A friend uses it but she is a fitness instructor so wears sports kit most of the time. It's worth it for her.

Didn't realise Gap went up to 22/24. Must have a look.

if you are looking for cheap but good stuff then dont rule out primark

i have some primark sports tops and bottoms and they are just as good as my nike and adidas ones
