Here are five athleisure brands launched by women breaking social barriers in more ways than one.

It’s 2022, not having a wide range of sizes in sportswear is just not cool. These women-led brands are breaking down barriers with their activewear geared towards all sizes.

Here are five women-launched athleisure brands that are breaking down social barriers in more ways than one and showing that women of all shapes and sizes — petite to tall, thin to curvy, petite to tall — deserve it all.

Divya Goenka’s size-inclusive activewear brand not only emphasizes body positivity, but also focuses on ethical manufacturing practices. This brand is unique in that it exclusively uses fabrics that have been left behind by manufacturers and factories that export their products. To ensure proper treatment for their artisans, they also employ production staff within the company. As a result, quality control is constant. They also promote zero waste. They produce in small quantities to reduce the amount of unsold inventory. This brand sells dresses, tops, jackets, activewear and bottoms in sizes L to 6XL.

2. Spirit Animal

This is one of the best sports brands including size if you are a size 12 or larger. They take their activewear selection seriously, which includes joggers, yoga pants, sports bras, and tops. Think again if you think stylish gym gear is impossible for tall girls. This brand, which offers sizes up to 6XL, aims to provide plus size Indian women with the space and platform to showcase their distinctive style in the most comfortable way possible. Since its beginnings in 2018, the company has enjoyed constant success. Their best-selling sports bra, the Feel Comfy Bra, features removable padding for ultimate comfort and freedom of movement.

5. Aastey

Aastey is a “pandemic-born” company that was created in 2020 when founders Jeevika and Kanupriya bonded over their shared struggles with their bodies and realized how pervasive body image issues are. Aastey is an enduring D2C athleisure brand that focuses on the “three Fs” of fashion: form, fit and function. The fourth “F” has also been added: fabric. Aastey’s “the werk it” set, which includes a sports bra and matching leggings, claims to be available in 16 different sizes, to be comfortable and stylish, and to be worn all day.
