I know you don’t have to buy clothes specific to tennis to get out and enjoy the game, although if you are playing a few times a week it may be worth investing in a good tennis skirt. As with most specialty sports, finding tennis clothes in plus sizes is a challenge. I’ve done some research and I have found a few tennis retailers who carry plus size tennis clothing.
JoFit carries high quality golf, tennis and activewear through size 18-20 or XXL. Their clothes are cut very realistically so they are perfect if you are like me, almost-plus, depending on the brand. I can comfortably wear JoFit size 16 or XL where I need XXL in other brands. Use the code JOFITSME for free shipping and returns.
Tennis Express – On their site you can actually search by size which makes it so much easier to narrow down your choices. They carry womens XL and XXL (2x) in skirts, tops, ball shorts, jackets, tees, and dresses. Not the largest selection in plus sizes, but they have a good selection of the basics. Another nice thing about Tennis Express has free shipping on orders over $75.
TennisHut carries a nice line of women’s plus size tennis gear by In Between. Sizes include 1X (20W), 2X (22W) and 3X (24W). I really like their Wide Band Sphere Skirt – for the length and the flattering wide waist band. The collection includes jackets, skirts, tops, shorts, pants and tennis undergarments.
Zappos and 6pm– One of the things I love so much about Zappos is their free shipping both ways, but the other thing I like so much is that they carry a wide range of tennis gear in plus sizes. The selection varies by the week, but it is definitely worth checking out regularly.
See you on the court!
