#FitFashion Friday Feature: Fit Girl Redefined – quality workout clothes designed to embrace curvy women
A few posts ago I mentioned I struggled to find well-made, stylish athletic apparel for “plus-sized” women to feature on #FItFashion Friday. Although some brands do have sizes up to 14, what’s a girl to do if you don’t fit comfortably into a 14? It’s not fair that there is all this amazing, gorgeous athletic apparel for the extra-small types, but limited options for sizes extra large and up.
That’s why after further digging since finding Lola Getts — a collection of cross-functional active wear for “the woman who celebrates her curves and her busy lifestyle” — I was excited to find another great brand specializing in active wear for sizes 14 and up.
Fit Girl Redefined, a U.S.-based active wear line by Jennifer McClelland, is “all about quality workout clothes that are designed to embrace curvy women.” Not only are the pieces stylish and comfortable, but most are also made locally in the states, which is something I can get behind. I also love what McClelland says about why she founded the brand:
“We deserve workout clothes that allow us to push limits and motivate us to work harder. We demand quality, performance and to look as good as we’re feeling. We deserve to not be chastised for our weight but to be celebrated because we’re committed to our own cause…
Transforming yourself isn’t glamorous. In fact, it’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done. But the rewards by far outweigh the strife. Remember, you define your body it doesn’t define you.”
Below are a few of my favourite looks from the brand, which specializes in yoga, workout and cycling clothing. Check out Fit Girl Redefined’s website for more details and to order.
