Social Media Manager April and Ambassador Lori compiled a list for all of us that need comfy, cute, plus-sized hiking attire.

So you’ve been looking for hiking attire and you are not a size 2? On a recent blog post sponsored by REI, we learned that so many of you beaUtiful women are wearing men’s clothing on the trail. We have to admit, this struck a frustrating chord with us and we couldn’t help but listen to you, our followers. We may not be able to completely solve this long-overlooked issue, but we are hoping that our research and compiled list of companies that are offering sizes 14-24 and up to 6 XL at all different price brackets finds a happy place in our distraught readers.

Just because you are not the size 2 on the magazine or in the commercials, doesn’t mean you are not an outdoorsy girl.  Our list of companies below are ones we are happy to see things the way we do – women of all sizes love the outdoors. Some ship and some are local, and a lot of them you may find in local stores as well. Our next step is to share your concerns with other outdoor brands that are not quite following along just yet and let them know we have found what is in demand. We are tall, short, athletic, tiny, large and extra large and WE are hikers and outdoorsy gals! We need athletic wear that is sexy and practical and we deserve to have nice clothes geared for the outdoors because we are beautiful no matter what size we are.

4 comments on “Plus-sized hiking attire–because we’re all hikers

  1. Size 14, 16, 18 don’t count as plus size. Yes REI carries a FEW large sizes, but very hard to find. My guess it’s about 5% of their stock. 😤 I shopped there every month in the Dallas store for over 15 years. Please do more to support pluse size women.

  2. I know women who are a size S or M who are quite slim, yet have to wear XLG MEC clothing. Just because a company says they have larger sizes, does not mean their clothing is a true fit.

  3. thank you for this list! I wear a size 26-28 US and it’s nearly impossible to find outdoor clothing for warm/hot weather hiking/walking activities!!!
