Workout Clothes Shopping

It's payday! Time to pay some bills and figure out what needed items I can afford. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to spend a few bucks on new eyeglasses. Grrrrr!! I went into the bathroom this morning and my glasses had mysteriously jumped off the counter and were bent out of shape. Unless I have an invisible intruder, Giggleman has to be the culprit since he was the only one in there after me last night. He has this amazing ability to smash my glasses without trying! Last time he did, the optician said that my current pair wouldn't last another fix. I have the lens popped back in but the bows are goofed up. My insurance is kind of weird with vision so I have to find a different place for an eye exam and then find a cheap place to buy the glasses from the list of those that give a discount.

I also need to shop for some new workout clothes. As I stated in my last post, my pants slid off and I just cant keep them up anymore unless I rock a belt...they have no drawstring!! I only have one pair that does, so I need to do some hunting for some cheap options. I checked out my usual cheapskate spot (Walmart) and I think they are phasing out the plus size workout wear there. Why??? Target doesn't have the plus sized options like before, but I see that they do go up to a regular sized XXL in the Champion line...I think that is smaller than a plus size 2X. I may have to go try them on and hope for the best. Besides going online, does anyone know some good options for bigger gal workout wear?

Fred Meyer - in the PNW is a good option.

If you don't live there, you could try Penneys. They have lots of workout pants - online or in the stores.

Old Navy clothes fit well for me for working out and I've lucked out at outlet malls in the sports stores...our walmart still has plus size stuff for workouts, did you try online...Good luck!!

Yeah I have no idea where to get plus size workout wear these days...none.

I wish I could be more help!

Thanks for the ideas! My current pants that fell off are from Old Navy. Too bad I have three all in the same size...the one thing bad about losing weight! I went to Target and actually went into a fitting room...the workout pants there fit but were not flattering in the gut and arse areas! I tried Shopko...if I decide to pay $40 for some fancy arse sweat-wicking thingies I'll go back. I forgot about Penneys...I'll have to check them out today.

Good luck finding good work out clothes, and congrats to getting to a point where they fall off! I would offer some suggestions if I had any, but my workout outfit consists of men's sweatpants and an old ratty t-shirt.

Actually, workout pants can be kind of easy to take in. Do you have a sewing machine?

Ack, I can sew on Girl Scout badges but altering pants? Maybe my mom could handle that one. Luckily, I found some!!!
