Taffy Plus Sized Activewear

Finding good activewear that looks great while being functional can be a real challenge. That challenge is increased ten fold when you are plus sized. I know I personally have been intimidated by the process more than a time or two. It seems like even plus sized active wear is just to generic and tight fitting to be flattering. Thankfully Taffy Activewear gets that while we are all on the road to fitness we are not all there yet and need something flattering in the mean time. 

They have a variety of tanks and tops of which I was sent the Taffy Essential Short Sleeve. It is a classic fit top with flatlock seams. The material is very soft and breathable as well as being wicking, which means you will stay drier. I love the way it hangs and moves with me. I like that the back hangs lower so that you stay covered when you are bending and moving. I was sent a size too big but when layered with my favorite sports bra or layering top it works perfectly. 

I paired the top with the Taffy Essential Capri which is my favorite pair of capris. These are seriously comfortable and I often wear them on days I have no intention of working out. They are semi compression pants and have stylish mesh on the back waist area and on the thighs. They have a wide stay put waist band that doesn’t roll down on you when you are really moving. The fabric is soft and also wicking so you will stay dry and comfortable. 

To wrap up the look I wore the Taffy Essential Jacket. In the Fall and Spring this is my go to jacket. It is designed to give you a long lean line which as a curvy woman is always a nice bonus. It has two zippered hand warmer pockets as well as hidden inside pockets. The front zipper has a pretty pull and zips both ways.  My favorite part of this jacket is the 3 inch collar that I can zip all the way up if it is  a little chilly.  This jacket it truly a cute sporty jacket that is designed to and does flatter a full figure. I often find the bust area even in plus sizes can be bunched and tight but they gave extra give and it fit like it was for me.

If you are a plus sized woman, you know how hard it can be to find good, functional, and flattering active wear. I suggest browsing the Taffy website. I am sure you will find something you need or want for your next visit to the gym or even for your home gym.

  1. What I love about Taffy activewear is that it is made for women that are plus size. I have hard time finding clothes because I am plus size, and the red top is very pretty, and they have pants and shirts that I can fit into that are stylish!
