Forever 21 made Racked’s guide to the best stores to shop for workout gear, and now F21’s activewear range is getting even more inclusive. The brand announced today that it’s launching a plus-size workout section in US stores and online. Forever 21 also landed a familiar face to promote the line in model Ashley Graham, who’s been featured in Vogue editorials, the pages of Sports Illustrated, and Lane Bryant campaigns.
Forever 21’s plus-size activewear section is online right now and open for shopping. There are mesh-paneled leggings, hoodies, marble print sports bras, and bras with the phrase “No Days Off” written along the elastic hem. Pieces are sized from extra-large to 3XL.
The line tops out at $30, with sports bras are priced under $20 and leggings are in the $19 through $29 range. Even though the prices for each piece are less than a single SoulCycle class, Forever 21’s claims that its activewear includes flat lock seams, key pockets, and anti-odor and wicking technology.
