There’s nothing like coming home at the end of a long day and slipping into a pair of comfy pants and relaxing at home. We here at Dia & Co feel the same way, and we understand that plus size joggers and sweatpants are part of every woman’s wardrobe. The athleisure trend (which is not going away) has made wearing activewear-influenced fashion a stylish way to stay relaxed and feel great at the same time. And the impact of updating Y2K fashion has made plus size jogger sets a must-have item that can be worn (almost) anywhere.
Between our research, designers, and collaborators, we make sure that the sweatpants for women, joggers, and joggers sets are tailored for your lifestyle, love your curves, and most importantly, make you feel great.
Plus size women’s joggers are very on trend and have been for a few years now. What is a jogger? They started out as activewear and were used for exercising. It’s a pant, usually made in knit or sweatshirt material, that have either a ribbed, elasticated, or drawstring waistband, at least two pockets and a ribbed hem. They come in every fabric you can think of, even faux denim. You can pair joggers with tees, tunics, crop tops, and, of course, activewear separates and hoodies.
Traditionally, women’s jogging pants were designed for working out and doing exercises, so they had a loose leg to accommodate movements. Now you can find women’s jogging pants that run the gamut from straight legged to wide legged. When purchasing and wearing joggers, it really comes down to personal preference, use, and style. Which is why, we here at Dia & Co have a selection of joggers and plus size jogger sets in a variety of styles and fits.
While both styles were originally designated as workout wear, there are a few differences. Joggers were made for running, while sweatpants (or sweat pants) were made so that you’d sweat while working out---hence the name. That’s why they are mostly made with thick cotton. Sweatpants have a loose leg, an elasticated hem, and a ribbed waistband that is either elasticated or is a drawstring. Some fashionable sweatpants have a ribbed elasticated waistband with a decorative drawstring tie.
Meanwhile, active or athleisure Joggers are made with a thinner material, like a cotton knit, nylon, or tech fabric. The pants have a ribbed hem, a tapered leg and may be loose in the hips and thighs, and then tighter in the calves.
Both sweatpants and joggers can be styled to look chic any time. A tailored type of a jogger pant can be paired with a blazer and low heel for work or brunch. A sweatpant made from thin cotton can be styled the same way, too. Because sweatpants are a tad more casual, they can be styled with a boho style tunic or crop top. Plus size jogger sets and sweatpant sets are two-piece sets that take the guesswork out of creating an outfit. And with a set, you can always mix and match each piece with the rest of your wardrobe, too.
When shopping for plus size sweatpants, joggers or cute plus size jogging sets, a good rule of thumb is to look for items that fit your body type. Pear shapes (where your hips and thighs are fuller than shoulders and bust) could opt for sweatpants and joggers that balance their figure. Slim fit joggers and sweatpants with a high waist look great on them. Also try wide or flare-leg styles, too. Apple body shapes (with a large bust, narrow hips, and slim legs) can look for slim fitting joggers and sweatpants. Hourglass body shapes (who have the same width of bust and hips with a defined waist) could look for sweatpants and joggers that accentuate the waist. Pants with a high waist and slim legs will do the trick. Rectangular body shapes (same width across widths, waist, and shoulders) can basically wear any style, but high-waisted joggers and sweatpants will help define your waistline. Regardless of your shape, the best joggers for women are truly the ones that make you feel fantastic. And it just so happens that all joggers, sweatpants, and loungewear on Dia.com are designed with you in mind.
