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!

Tall Fashionistas, Turn Your Fashion Week Frustration into Style Inspiration

When you love fashion, but fashion doesn’t love you back….
