Introducing: Your Plus Size Fitness StylistWritten by Kayla Footit
The Wait is Over:
Sizes 1X – 3X are now available in the Wantable Fitness Edit.
When we added plus sizes to our Style Edit 18 months ago, it was thrilling to take that meaningful first step in building a more inclusive personal styling experience. Yet, I know a lot of you were disappointed that we didn’t extend our Fitness sizing at that time. As a plus size woman, I read your emails and messages on social media and completely identified with your frustration. In spite of what many people think, being plus size doesn’t automatically mean that you’re unhealthy, nor does it mean you don’t exercise. Women of all shapes get the same boost of motivation from a great new outfit, and the fitness apparel industry should be embracing this and celebrating real bodies of all sizes.
Expanding the size offering of our Fitness Edits has always been part of the plan. With diligent work, a bit of time and sweat, and a lot of love, we’re finally able to present an amazing selection of premium fitness apparel that will excite and inspire you to reach your goals. We’re excited to be partnering with Vimmia, Shape Active, Marika Curves, and more to amp up your workout wardrobe. We welcome your input as well; if you know of a plus size brand you think we should carry, please email our purchasing department. I know they’ll be excited to hear from you.
We can’t wait to begin sending workout gear to our plus size customers, so I encourage you to take the Fitness quiz and kick off the New Year with big goals, new gear, and the support of a personal stylist who understands perfect fit and function.
About The Fitness Edit:
The Wantable Fitness Edit is the personal styling service that allows you to try before you buy in the comfort of your home. This means you get to try on 7 handpicked technical and athleisure items before deciding what you want to purchase. These pieces feature the hottest styles from premium activewear brands. Item prices are based on your personal preferences but usually range from $30-$70 each.
• In addition to XS-XL, we are now offering sizes 1X, 2X, and 3X.
• The additional sizes are part of our existing Fitness Edit, not a new category.
• We began the process of adding plus-size apparel several years ago as part of our mission to provide the most inclusive sizing in the industry. Plus sizes were added to our Style Edit in 2016.
