In the Details is a series where we dive deep into design details at JunoActive. Thoughtful design and durable fabrics are at the core of our design process. Here we explore the extra effort we put into our plus-size activewear, swimwear, and underwear to make them as comfortable, functional, and long-lasting as possible for the modern plus-size woman.
Travelers know it: A comfortable, multi-use outfit is priceless when you’re hopping from plane to plane around the globe.
Athleisure has certainly seen an uptick in fashion trends in the past few years, and for good reason. The stretchy yet solid fabrics used in most activewear are comfortable, stylish, and perfect for sitting in cramped airplane seats or for daily tours of your city du jour.
Choosing the right outfit, however, can be a bit daunting. Do you choose the cotton ensemble for plane rides, or are those best for sightseeing trips? We’ve broken down a few key fabric and wardrobe tips for every plus-size traveller so that your next trip is the most comfortable and stylish one yet.
1. Best plus-size fabrics for long days on the plane: SoftWik
Our SoftWik collection is made with some SERIOUSLY soft fabric. The best part is that it doesn’t wrinkle easy, meaning you’ll be comfy and looking fresh on your flights or extended periods of sitting.
2. Best plus-size fabrics for hiking or sightseeing: QuikWik
QuikWik is our high performance, super moisture-wicking fabric. Its compression technology will help with muscle fatigue and also prevents chafing when you’re on long hikes or working up a great sweat.
3. Best plus-size travel bra: QuikWik Soft Control Bra Top
The QuikWik Soft Control Bra Top is a great travel bra if you’re looking for moisture-wicking paired with the perfect amount of support.
4. Best plus-size travel underwear: Hush Boxer
Our Hush collection is another one of our insanely soft fabrics that feel super luxe against your skin. The Hush Boxer is a great choice if you’re looking for a think, comfortable boxer to help with chafing and keeping you cool.
5. Best plus-size travel pants: Ultraknit Pants
6. Best plus-size travel tops: SoftWik Secret Pocket Tee
The SoftWik Secret Pocket Tee combines our two favorite things: SoftWik fabric and pockets. This style is a longer length than our regular tees making it tall-friendly and also a good layering option for leggings. Our SoftWik V-Neck Tee and our Stretch Naturals Tee both have a classic fit and are available in several colors.
7. Best plus-size travel jacket: SoftSport Fleece Full Zip Hoodie
Durable and lightweight, this full-zip hoodie is perfect for controlling your temperature while you’re on the go.
8. Best plus-size travel shoes: Altra Shoes
The unique “zero drop” footbed design in these Altra shoes avoids the typical raised-heel with an incredibly comfortable and cushioned alignment that matches how you stand barefoot. Their wide toe fit gives you maximum balance and stability for hiking and climbing.
