Don’t get us wrong—we love high tech fabrics for activewear that wick moisture and keep you dry throughout intense workouts. They’re a necessity for workout classes and activities with lots of sweat.
However, cotton is still a super important exercise fabric that is making a major comeback. We’re not talking about the cotton of yore that stretches out so insanely far during one sweat session that it becomes baggy and misshapen. (Cue 90s exercise clothing when there weren’t any plus-size activewear retailers around.)
We’re talking about smart cotton—cotton that is blended with the perfect amount of Spandex so that it moves with you while also letting your body breathe. JunoActive’s cotton fabrics typically incorporate 8% Spandex, which prevents any bagging out with high activity and movement.
Our cotton styles—like our brand spankin’new plus size cotton dresses—keep you cooler than some other synthetic fabric blends. They’re great for long-day wear because of their breathability and the fact that cotton doesn’t hold onto odors the same way synthetic fabrics do. Our cotton fabrics are also a bit thicker than other brands, making them flattering for lumps and bumps, good for your wallet, and nice on the environment.
Plus Size Cotton Picks
Here are a few of our most popular cotton styles you should try:
This dress is perfect for everything from casual days at the office to super cute fall workouts (paired with leggings, of course.)
Depending on your style, this v-neck bra top can be worn solo or under your favorite activewear shirt.
One of our most popular cotton pieces because of the extra sizing options. Petite, Average, and Tall lengths mean these pants will fit your unique shape better than ever. Their thicker cotton construction mean they flatter lumps, bumps, and curves.
“I highly recommend the newJunonia Classics Center Seam Dress. It is crazy comfortable and has pockets.” Nothing is better than pockets. This dress is great for work, play, and activities paired with bike shorts or leggings.

Injuries happen, and sometimes they can limit your ability to be active. We found encouragement from JunoActive friend and plus size fit model, Jill Erickson, who recently underwent surgery for a double knee replacement. In her own words, Jill shares how the comfort and ease of JunoActive's plus size activewear helped her in the hospital, during her physical therapy, and most importantly now that she’s back doing one of her favorite activities -- walking her dog.
