It's a common misconception that big girls don't work out. On the contrary, my idea of an awesome day begins with a bike ride along Manhattan's East River or practicing my sun salutations with other limber lovelies. In fact, my biggest problem with exercise isn't mustering the mojo to do it, but finding stylish, well-made activewear designed for a bigger frame like mine.

I know I'm not alone: I've spied countless full-figured girls shuffling around my gym in drawstring sweats and shapeless tees while their size-6 counterparts flit around in too-cute-for-words Lululemon and Adidas by Stella McCartney. I've always believed that a chic outfit is transformational — it makes you stand taller, speak more confidently, and command more presence. The same holds true for your workout gear: The right clothes will have you ready to conquer the world, one set of reps at a time. With that in mind, I've rounded up my favorite gym essentials guaranteed to have you sweating in style.
