Old Navy Is My Recommended Activewear Brand for Tall Women

When shopping for activewear, I have three requirements for the fit and quality:

  1. Comfort – Good weight, not too heavy or too thin. Easy to move around in
  2. Security – No slipping or falling. Snug, but not tight. Sits right below the waist, not too low
  3. Performance – Has wicking fabric that dries fast and keeps me cool

Style is a nice to have, but not an absolute need for me because the clothes end up becoming drenched in sweat and dirty anyway :).

Keep reading for the brand that meets these requirements, while offering extended sizes that tall women can wear to get their physical fitness on!

What I Wore In: Malaga, Spain

At first, I wasn’t too sure what to wear on my first trip to the south of Spain. I did research on the weather (of course) and looked at pictures of the area for inspo (Google Images to be exact…!)

The forecast showed 80 degrees (yay!), dropping to 60’s in the evening. Given the rich culture and ancient architecture of Spain (picture: ruins, beautiful archways, fortified brick palaces, colorful mosaics), I wanted to incorporate texture. I also wanted to wear colors that were somewhat muted; too bright of colors would have felt more tropical (better suited for the Caribbean-esque).

Here’s what I wore in Malaga, Spain…

What I Wore In: St. Lucia

There’s one requirement I have when packing for the Caribbean – bring color and lots of it. Besides planning for lots of outdoors activities (hiking, visiting volcanoes) and beach bumming, I wasn’t sure what else I’d be getting into during my trip to St. Lucia. So, I mostly ended up packing new items I’d just gotten and was excited to wear (it had been awhile since I’d seen the sun because the weather had been miserable in NYC).

What I Wore In: Cancun, Mexico

We all know Cancun gets turned up, so bringing clothes that you can cut a rug in is a must. But did you know that Cancun has really great restaurants? Plus, the turn up doesn’t have to be all day (although that’s an option too). During the day, we spent most of our time at the rooftop pool of our hotel and lazily strolling around the area.

Check out what I wore in Cancun, Mexico to stay comfortable while absorbing Vitamin D and getting to know the town.
