I love mine from www.jms.com, they fit well and don't stretch out. I also got some from the woman within catalog. They put workout clothes on clearance all the time in a variety of sizes.

I purchased my capris type yoga pants at walmart. They are very comfy and then I usually just wear an old comfy tee.

I have found some workout clothes at Good Will, they are cheap, since I am on a budget, the money goes to a good cause, and then I can give them back when I am done. I can't afford buying new clothes all the time.

I got my work out clothes at Lane Bryant. If you have the store anywhere near you, sometimes they have work out pants on clearance (I got mine for $15) I think they have them online too and the sizes work really well. The ones online aren't all that awesome right now..lots of velour. Unless you like that..then go for it. :)

They may have sports bras as well.

I personally wear guys nylon pants, usually Adidas. I find that it's easier and more comfortable to go with most guys exercise stuff, plus it's cheaper.

Well thank you for everyone's replies. Apparently JP penny is also a place to go. I haven't ordered anything yet, because I want to absolutely fall in love with it, and lets face it-I want to loose more weight before I buy a pair. While I know this strategy isn't good if I'm always going to say it, but since I'm close to a 2x bottom I'm trying to hold out. Thank you again for all the suggestions!

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

I know it sounds expensive, but I have found some really good stuff at Macy's. I always just check the clearance section when I'm there. I never end up paying more than 10 or 15 bucks, and they come up to 3x... I like the capris b/c they cover enough, but aren't sooo hot like full length pants can be. I also like ones with a drawstring, it REALLY helps with the staying up issue.

YOUNMM23 - where did you get the pants you were mentioning? Woman within? I have SO much trouble finding pants to work out in b/c I'm tall too. (it's another reason I prefer capris)

I wish my "bottom" was a 3x :P I have that same issue though. I am a 3x top and 4x bottom... for now. I'm ALMOST into a 3x bottom now. I think last time I checked I had lost about 15 inches all over. Its so hard to find good work out clothes that isn't an eye sore or will stand up to lots of exercise. They just wear out too soon. I get my exercise from Trikking. If you don't know what it is look on youtube for Trikke haha. Most people haven't a clue, but its sooo much fun. So I need something that moves well too.

In general, its gonna be hard to find good quality athletic shorts for bigger bodies, since bigger bodies usually want to hide. I've gotten great yoga pants at Avenue (avenue.com) and Woman Within. Now, with woman within, you gotta dig for things that don't look like were marketed to a blind grandma, but good things can be found. I got a good sports bra there (one WITHOUT a front seam, which took me a long time to find), pants that were actually long enough (i'm 5'8" and they actually had a 4x in tall), and really great jeans that, again, were long enough. Good luck!

Hi everybody. My bottom half is a 3x, and my top half is a 2x. I'm usually okay with finding tops, but bottoms are hard to come by. So I thought I would ask all of you lovely people...

Where do you get your plus size athletic shorts? Pants? Bras? and Shirts?

My favorite pair of shorts were from Goodys. This is because the elastic is 1.5" thick, so they stay on and don't slip down (a side effect of the quarter inch not strong elastic). See, at my weight, it is hard to find work out clothes that I would actually be able to work out in! As the weather is getting colder, I'm going to need a couple pairs of good jogging and cardio pants for my early PE classes.

Ever stop to think, and forget to start again?
