The thing is, sportswear can be hit and miss for everyone. When it's good, it's great, but when it's bad, it's a whole lot of camel toe, knickers on show and bras that are so tight they feel like they're cutting off your circulation. But, it's 2022 and we just don't have time for that.

Whether you're working towards a long-term fitness goal, fancy a daily walk or just like the comfort of sports leggings while WFH, having the right outfit is essential.

Luckily we've rounded up some of the key plus size finds from brands including Nike, Reebok, Girlfriend Collective and more, to save you the hassle.

ASOS Curve Activewear

ASOS is a great place to find a whole host of fitness brands for sizes 18 - 30. Stocking the likes of Adidas, Nike, Reebok and its own sportswear brand ASOS 4504 you've got plenty to choose from for your trip to the gym. Choose from cool sports bras, leggings, jackets and even skiwear. With prices as little as £7.

With Ashley Graham as a global ambassador, Knix is certainly up there with some of the best activewear brands catering to larger sizes. Based in America, this is definitely one for our US readers, but worldwide shipping is also available. The main thing that sets Knix apart from the rest of the brands in this round-up is its ‘leakproof’ technology – a very helpful absorbancy feature meaning leggings, shorts or knickers can take in up to three teaspoons of liquid, meaning no leakages of any kind…very useful to know!
