I'm just over 5'1" and plus-sized as well and found some at Target that work for me. I've also found capris there in the past that I used as workout pants.

I love goodwill! Especially when in the transition of losing weight. why pay full price when they will only fit for a few months?

Hi, I'm the same height--5'2. I had the same problem. Target has capri pants, and I found some inexpensive yoga capri pants at TJ Maxx--not sure if you have one near you. I was using the capri sweatpants that I found at Target, too. That was pretty inexpensive. :) Just buy one or two; I kept switching between two pairs, and now one is really loose (YAY!) so I only wear when I'm strength training and not jumping around.

I guess Modells is only an east coast sporting good store. You can also try Dicks Sporting Goods or Sports Authority.

I go to Modells and look in the kids section. Most of the time I have to hem the pants but I use "Stitch Witchery" adhesive instead of sewing.

I wear jogging pants, capris, anything comfy... and a big shirt... You gotta be you. Don't worry about anyone else. Heck.. the goodwill is a good spot too.. you could get some for $2

Capris also tend to be a couple of bucks less than comparable pants.

I often get capris which are nearly pant-length on me but don't need to be hemmed.

I think Target now has short yoga pants. I've been getting most of mine from Old Navy and just hemming them up.

Hi, I am 5'2" and am having a really hard time finding some yoga pants or anything that'll fit me right now since I am short and overweight.
Does anyone know of a good place to get something cute and not too long in my size?
