I don't know about you, but when leggings came back in style, I was adamant that I wasn't going to hop on the trend, particularly as a plus size woman. "Who wants to wear thick tights all the time?"... Me. That's who. I caved, and I caved hard. Now you can catch me in them more days out of the week than not; from the gym to the grocery store, to hours spent on the couch catching up on my shows. I have all black, fun prints, shiny options, and more - and I'm guessing you do too.
While the trend of leggings has been around for a hot minute now, there has been an evolution. Enter here: Athleisure Wear.
So how does athleisure wear differ from your regular-shmegular leggings? Well first and foremost, it's not just leggings, especially on Curvysense.com. Now you have joggers, sweatpants, and yoga pants tied into the mix. An array of options that are now acceptable to wear to either the gym or on a coffee date. You don't have to be working up a sweat, or have to pair them with a ratty t-shirt. You can pair them with bralettes, crop tops, a tied up flannel, or, really, whatever tickles your fancy.
This is to say; there are fewer rules with Athleisure Wear. For one, you don't have to be paranoid about not covering up your butt because, 1) the material is now thick enough, so folks won't see your underwear, and 2) there are so many great high waist options, so they actually flatter curvy figures AND allow you to be comfortable, fancy that! Which doesn't mean you can't cover your rear, the simplicity of some pairs is great for layering under dresses and tunics. And let us not forget the great new styles with cut outs, mesh pieces, and pleather that, dare I say, can make your outfit... chic?!
Athleisure Wear is truly a perfect put on and go item, but it can also be part of a carefully assembled ensemble. It gives you the best of dressed up and dressed down, all while maintaining a high level of comfort, and I don't know about you, but that's SUPER important to me. I love that I can go to the club without being worried about some dude's hand trying to grab a feel up my skirt, and instead, I can focus on dancing (and also training to drop-kick said dude in the face).
Don't just take my word for it tho, shop our plus size athleisure and join me in my constant state of comfy.
