Since I’ve gained some of my weight back, I’m gonna admit that I’m back in plus sizes. A 1X is my usual size, and while some of my XL clothes still fit, most of my closet isn’t being worn right now. It’s sort of depressing.
I know it’s just a tag, but eh…it’s still a tough pill to swallow. A while back, a good blogging friend sent me a link about reviewing this brand of plus size activewear: Taffy. Since some of my workout clothes are a bit snug right now, I went for it.
I was sent the Taffy Essential Jacket (in white) for review through Sweat Pink. Since it tends to still switch between cold and warm lately, this jacket is still getting some use! I mean, last week we had weather in the 30s and just Saturday when my husband and I were doing yard work, I couldn’t stop sweating…it was HOT. Anyway, for chilly afternoons/evenings, I like to wear a light jacket to say, go for a run, walk the dog or heck, just wear on the way to the gym!
Back when I (barely) fit in regular sizes, it was easy peasy to buy activewear. I could go to most stores and pick something right off the rack. However, when it comes to plus sizes, it’s pretty darn hard to find something that looks cute, has proper fabric for workouts (especially running…boo cotton!) and has a flattering fit.
Enter Taffy Activewear. I love that they’re all about giving plus sized women cute workout clothes that are meant to be flattering and are pretty darn cute! I can’t tell you how frumpy I feel when I go to the gym in some of the plus sized workout clothing that is offered in stores. I know it sounds weird , but I sort of feel like I have a boost of confidence when I have fun/cute workout clothes in the gym.
I ultimately decided to get the white jacket, because I own enough dark colored activewear, and I wanted something different. My first thought when I put this jacket on was that it was pretty slimming. I looked pretty darn good in this jacket! Also, it’s really well-made. I also appreciate that the jacket has a good length to it….as a tall gal, it’s a bummer when tops are too short. I want to feel comfortable moving around, stretching, etc., and this jacket is great for that!
It’s great that a company like Taffy is realizing that plus sized women also work-out, and are finally providing plus sized women cute options for doing just that. They also carry fun tops and bottoms in their store, and right now, they have quite a few pieces on major sale!
