Pricing – The fullbeauty SPORT™ collection is sold on fullbeauty.com and WomanWithin.com, priced from $26.99 to $64.99.
I have been overweight for years. As a plus-size woman there have been many times that I found it challenging to find activewear clothing that was both stylish and comfortable. Old-school bulky sweats may or may not be comfortable, but they are almost never stylish. I was recently introduced to a new line of plus-size activewear, fullbeauty SPORT.
fullbeauty SPORT™ seamlessly integrates unparalleled design and performance details to provide the most comprehensive plus-size active lifestyle brand. The 20-piece collection offers a fresh, active color palette of vibrant corals, hot pinks and bright aqua blues consisting of all the must-have active essentials, including the printed legging, running zip up jacket, sports bra, sweatshirt, sports tank, yoga pant, hoodie, jogger and sports tee. The collection was designed with the most innovative fabrics for optimal stretch & comfort, providing ultimate shape retention for a lasting great fit. The fabrications are soft and luscious and provide the performance benefits of moisture wicking, breathability and non-chafe seaming.
I received a fullbeauty SPORT Tunic hoodie jacket in black, which I got in size 22/24. I also received a pair of fullbeauty SPORT Yoga bootcut pants in black with a fuschia print, which I got in size 1X. The pieces looked almost exactly as they did online but the important questions remained – were they comfortable and how would they wear.
The fullbeauty SPORT Tunic hoodie jacket has become one of my most favorite things to wear. I might be able to fit into the closest lower size but I do prefer to have tops and jackets a bit loose. The jacket, made of washable cotton/polyester French terry, is very soft and comfortable. The moisture-wicking material do a a great job of helping keep you at just the right temperature while still providing breathability. The deep-V neckline and half-zip front closure allow you to create a stylish layered look without building up a big sweat. The hoodie can be tightened with a twill tape drawstring, which I greatly prefer over the more traditional round “shoelace” style of drawstring. My favorite feature of the jacket is it’s 34″ length, because it hangs down to the thighs. I also love the generously sized scoop pockets. They’re just the right width and depth to accommodate hands as well as cellphone and keys without anything falling out. The jacket washes very well, and I am pleased to report that there has been no pilling or shrinkage. If this jacket were available in additional colors I would surely buy them.
The fullbeauty SPORT Yoga bootcut pants just fit me. They aren’t too big nor do they have room to spare. I was concerned that they might feel restrictive but they actually do allow you to move freely. I am just a hair under 5’11” tall. There have been many occasions over the years that pants not designated as tall have been too short for me. The 30″ inseam on these pants is a good length for me. I am generally not a big fan of big bootcut bottoms, so was pleased to find that the leg openings on these pants is not gigantic like some. Basically the pants have a flare at the bottom, and the material falls nicely there. The moisutre-wicking material holds its shape without chafing riding up or getting stretched out. The soft, performance stretch polyester/spandex jersey is a great weight, it won’t feel like it’s super heavy and dragging you down.
