This Is What Happens When Yoga Brands Start Making Inclusive Sizes

There’s not one way to categorize yoga wear. From bold neon compression pants for power yoga to pastel sweater wraps for your yin class, there’s all different types of activewear pieces to match your personal style and favorite way to sweat.

But, there’s an all-to-common hangup around yoga apparel: few yoga clothing brands go past a size XL, completely excluding plus size workout clothes from their line. While many brands are stretchy, this doesn’t always equate to fitting fuller bodies. 

Yoga Brands and Plus Size Activewear

By choosing to not provide sizes larger than XL, yoga apparel brands are outright saying that plus size women don’t belong in the fitness realm. Apparently, they think that plus size women don’t need cute yoga pants and trendy strappy sports bras like everyone else!

Thankfully, this message is slowly becoming a thing of the past. More and more yoga apparel brands are focusing on representation and diversity, sparking a range of plus size activewear that is catered to women of all shapes, sizes and athletic abilities. YogaClub now offers sizes up to 3XL, becoming the most inclusive yoga clothing subscription box that finally provides stylish and functional workout clothes for plus size women!

With society as a whole becoming more accepting of size and diversity, there’s a letting go of this outdated idea that bigger women don’t work out. On the contrary, they most certainly do! And they want to be supported, feel liberated and look good while doing it. Joyful movement is for every body! We deserve proper yoga attire that allows our body to move regardless of our size.

A Big Thank You to Social Media

We can thank social media for much of this change. It has brought a personalized approach to yoga clothing because we can now use our voices to directly contact our favorite brands online. We can express what we want and need, stand up for ourselves and those we love. And yoga clothing companies are listening! 

By creating yoga clothes for plus size, YogaClub is allowing more women feel comfortable being in their own skin, which is a beautiful thing. Part of yoga is about loving this temple of our bodies— these bodies that allow us to move through this world. By embracing our whole being—  body, mind and spirit— and testing its capabilities and limits, we are able to transcend human suffering. We can go out into the world and fulfill our dharma- our life’s purpose. Yoga is inclusive at its core!

When women feel heard, seen and represented, we are more inclined to step into our positions as leaders, change-makers, philanthropists and entrepreneurs. We challenge the norms of society because they no longer represent us. We seek to lift up those around the world who are suffering. It’s not just about looking cute, it’s about feeling your best inside and out.
