Activewear has come in a variety of mix-and-match sports bras and leggings, stylish prints, and cool crop tops that people can wear daily. However, not all carry a size range that catered to every woman’s needs. Curvier women have long struggled with finding performance wear that not only fits their bodies but offers the support they need. While women who are shorter or taller than standard sizing are left with ill-fitting workout gear. Only in recent years have companies realized that health and wellness is not a one-size-fits-all situation. So, whether you’re moving your body to get those daily dose of endorphins, or taking a Netflix break on the couch, we’ve rounded up the best local fitness brands that serve all shapes and sizes.
