On her blog, Plus Size Princess, CeCe Olisa has detailed everything from what it's like to be the only big black girl in a yoga class (fine, thanks!), to her adventures in plus-size dating in the Big Apple. Now, the New York City transplant is lending her poignant, often-hilarious voice to R29.
When I started the #PSPfit clean eating & fitness boot camp, I realized that I needed to bring my plus-size fashion game with me onto the gym floor. There was no way I could go from a fabulous frock that accentuated my curves to sweats and a baggy T-shirt and oversized sweats. If you follow the workouts on my YouTube channel, PlusSizePrincessNYC, you’ll see I’ve grown quite a collection of curvy workout gear. Just like wearing a perfect dress can make a night, for me the right gym clothes can put me in the mood to crush a workout.
In fact, I’m pretty much allergic to frumpy clothes, so I began my hunt for on-trend, plus-size gym clothes and sports bras that keep “the twins” where they need to be. Whether your preferred workout is a long run or a hundred laps in the pool, ahead, you'll find 15 picks that won't do you wrong.
