Today I finally found a pair of rain pants so that I can bike in the rain and not get my jeans wet. I have been looking for at least a month. I love how many places seem to think that bigger girls just do not exercise or need gear that facilitates that exercise.
I am a pretty active woman and I always enjoyed hiking, biking and swimming. I like to ski even though I am not so good at it yet. I even enjoy snowshoeing even though the end always seems a little long. A lot of these activities mean that I need the proper outer wear to enjoy these activities without being wet or cold. Gear companies seem to think that because I have a big bust, or what ends up being an averaged sized bottom half that I don’t deserve gear that fits. It is frustrating because I know I am not the largest woman out there and if I have this hard a time getting exercise wear how do other bigger women cope?
Women of all sizes exercise and deserve to be comfortable while doing it. Since it is always the bigger sizes that are sold out, maybe this should be a sign to the buyers for the stores. If you have about a hundred size mediums and no other sizes, maybe that should let you know that you need to get some more bigger sizes. stop relegating plus sized people to shopping online. It is a pain in the ass and you might just get more of my custom if you took the time to see that not everyone is a small size.
Sports bra people, if you could make a sports bra that was actually made to help bigger breasts (and not just a DDD) I mean BIGGER breasts , you would have so many customers your corporate offices would spin and do a happy dance. I know I am not the only woman who would love to be supported while I exercise. If someone came up with a comfortable, supportive sports bra for the H-K cup women I would support you to the skies. You would be so supported you would be thanking me.
Heads up clothiers, the big women are not going to take this much longer. Get in the game while you still can.
