This Nike Announcement Is Amazing News for Body Diversity
When it comes to workout gear, plus-sized bodies are often overlooked—but Nike is changing that by offering women more sizes than ever. The brand announced that 44 of its womenswear pieces, including bras, leggings, pants, tops, and even athleisure, are now available up to sizes 38E and 3X.
Nike is committed to ensuring women of all shapes and sizes can find their perfect fit by continuing to expand its range to deliver stylish, functional pieces. “Nike recognizes that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever. In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is,” the brand said in a press release. “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.” Nike tapped style influencers Grace Victory and Danielle Vanier to promote the new line, and the selection looks incredible. From swoosh-emblazoned workout basics to trendier pieces like neon-printed leggings and cozy hoodies, this collection is bringing style to women everywhere.
