There seems to be no stopping Universal Standard! First it was the classic wardrobe staples that every plus size woman had wanted, beautiful, quality, real fabric pieces, then it was celebrity and plus size model collaborations before swiftly ushering in plus size loungewear. And to kick off January, Universal Standard, who are quickly becoming the go to indie, designer, plus size brand, have launched a chic sportswear line in US Sizes 10-28.
The fashion world has cottoned on to the fact that plus size women workout and want to look good while they are working up a sweat, so if anyone was going to launch a gym line that looks every inch as good as some of the major sportswear brands, our money was always going to be on Universal Standard.
Focusing on classic block colours, sleek leggings, a panel details, the stream line, vintage sports look is well and truly on point in this collection.
With wide width sleeveless tops, t-shirts with an almost bandage like detailing, vests, 3/4 length leggings and ankle length leggings, this capsule collection will have you looking every inch the sports star before you’ve even left the locker room. Cleverly nicknaming the line GAME, pieces are all ready selling out (waitlist for restock available), with others still available as pre-order testament to the fact that plus size women are into fitness and that Universal Standard has found a home in American women’s wardrobe.
But these curve sportswear pieces are more than just style savvy, made for ultimate performance and comfort, they are made from sweat-wicking, antimicrobial fabric engineered by US from the thread up. A super soft feel, they have an extra elastic waistband so you feel secure during your workout. They even have an interior front pocket to hold a phone, credit card and key. Sorted! Now get sweating!
