Nike recently launched a plus-size line and it’s fabulous.
The fitness community often features “role models” who fit into a very certain mold. That mold is not only unreachable and unrealistic, but it is also just inaccurate. People of all shapes and sizes work out. This line from Nike is one step closer to a more inclusive representation of the fitness and athletic community.
“Nike’s product range will continue to expand to ensure there is a perfect fit for every athlete,” Nike said in a press release. “Nike recognizes that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever,” Nike stated. “In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is. The days where we have to add ‘female’ before ‘athlete’ are over. She is an athlete, period. And having helped fuel this cultural shift, we celebrate these athletes’ diversity, from ethnicity to body shape.” (via this Bustle article)
The range features sizes XL-3XL and bra sizes up to 38E (according to Nike’s website). While this line is not 100% inclusive, it’s a great start and we are so excited about it.
