My fellow curvy girls will know what a bloody nightmare clothes shopping can be. Yes we have ASOS Curve (oh how we love thee) but if you’re above a size 18, Zara is a no go and don’t even get us started on Topshop who only go up to a size 16.
So yeah not being able to shop in the biggest high street shops sucks and its not just fashion clothes. Finding workout clothes is a nightmare as well, because apparently people above a size 16 don’t work out…
But that’s all about to change because Nike now have a plus size range and we have never been so happy.
Explaining their reason for expanding their size range Nike said:
“Nike recognises that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever. In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is. The days where we have to add ‘female’ before ‘athlete’ are over. She is an athlete, period. And having helped fuel this cultural shift, we celebrate these athletes’ diversity, from ethnicity to body shape.”
And if you thought plus size was just a case of making bigger clothes, Helen Boucher vice president of women’s training apparel had this to say:
“When we design for plus size, we aren’t just proportionately making our products larger. That doesn’t work because as we know, everyone’s weight distribution is different.”
So excited to share with you @nikewomen new lifestyle range, that is inclusive to plus sizes – going up to a size 3XL.
