Fitness is important no matter what your size or body shape. And there's a growing number of plus-size and curvy women being noticed within the fitness arena – from die-hard yogis to keen runners. 

The most important part of working out? Feeling confident while you're doing it. And thanks to these plus-size athletes, there's also a rise in fitness brands bringing out great activewear for curvy women.

Rivkie, Editor-in-Chief of plus-size mag Slink, reveals the labels she can't hit the gym without...

1. Panache

Wearing the right sports bra is incredibly important, especially for curvier women with a fuller bust. 

My top tip? Get fitted by an expert. They know the importance of full support to stop bounce while you're hitting the cross-trainer or circling the park.   

This Panache sports bra comes in a host of fun colours and prints with matching knickers. 

2. Freya

The other brand that's great for fuller busted fitness enthusiasts is Freya.

As a lingerie brand, Freya does a great job of catering to a fuller cup size. They have rigorously tested and developed the Freya sports bra to ensure that the only thing bouncing on the tennis court is the balls. 

They're also a great bet for flattering swimwear. You can shop their swimsuits and bikinis in bra sizes rather than dress sizes, so you're guaranteed to feel confident in the water. 

3. Lola Getts

Traditionally Karrimor is more of an outwear brand and their heart definitely does still lie with running and hiking gear – but don’t overlook the fantastic range of women’s leggings.

Available up to a UK size 20, there are great options for curvy women here and the thickness of the leggings makes them a bit more supportive too. 

7. Evans
