Forever 21 Released Its First Plus Size Activewear Line
|Forever 21 has become a go-to for workout gear on the cheap, and now
it’s getting more inclusive. Wednesday (Jan. 6), the company launched is
first ever line of plus size activewear.|
The fast-fashion retailer has had fitness clothing on its roster since 2010, but this marks its first complete plus-size offering in the category.
The range includes key workout pieces for different forms and levels of activity, from mesh-paneled leggings to high-impact sports bras.
A sleeveless, high-neck pullover and varsity-inspired mesh top lend themselves to the athleisure aesthetic that has permeated our vocabulary and off-duty wear.
The designs are service-oriented, with wicking, flatlock seams, anti-odor technology, and other features we look for in activewear.
However, we see a lot of our favorite fitness gear trends represented as well: heathered fabrics, neon accents, and marble print (in the set Graham wears) all make an appearance.
As if you needed another reason to check it out, Forever 21 tapped model Ashley Graham to promote the line.
Ashley’s come to be known for promoting body acceptance — she’s even done a TED Talk on it — as well as her groundbreaking editorials in magazines like Vogue and Sports Illustrated.
The inaugural 28-piece collection is currently available at Forever21 stores in the U.S. and online. Sizing ranges from XL to 3X. In typical Forever21 fashion, the line is very affordable: Prices start at $14.90 for a cutout sports bra and cap at $29.90 for a zip-up jacket.
