Nike launches plus-size line

Athleticwear just got a bit more size inclusive, thanks to Nike.

According to Bustle, the brand just released an all-new 44-piece line that includes pieces like sports bras, leggings and tops, and ranges in size from XL to 3X (and bras up to size 38E). The athleticwear company explained their decision to increase their size offerings in statement, says Glamour, sharing that the move seeks to acknowledge the growing role of women in sports.

“Nike recognises that women are stronger, bolder and more outspoken than ever. In today’s world, sport is no longer something that she does, it’s who she is. The days where we have to add ‘female’ before ‘athlete’ are over. She is an athlete, period. And having helped fuel this cultural shift, we celebrate these athletes’ diversity, from ethnicity to body shape.”

The line, which is currently available in stores and online, also features in its promo photos UK lifestyle blogger Grace Victory, according to Glamour, as well as London-based blogger Danielle Vanier.

Welcome to the body-inclusive club, Nike!
