Blog Series - Curves around the World - Curvy Plus size Outfits - WEEK #29 JOGGING/TRACKSUIT BOTTOMS

Happy Wednesday Ladies. I hope you are all having a lovely week! The theme this week is 'sweat pants', which we call tracksuit or jogging bottoms/trousers here or as I call them trackie bums (short for tracksuit bottoms!). Pants in the UK are underwear.....'and sweats' is a very American term which we don't use here. So I'll use my preferred term of 'trackie bums' as let's be honest, it's the most fun! Anyway now we have the lingo down and clarified, let's move on!

So, trackie bums for me are only worn in 2 ways-chilling out at home or doing excercise (yep that does happen sometimes!) They are very comfortable and fit those purposes but for me, that's as far as it goes. To me, they are very casual and there isn't much to them. That being said, if you want to rock them in other ways, you go for it! So trackie bums are full length (sometimes cropped) and either straight or boot cut usually and those are the kind I have. I have a few in grey and black and they are very soft,stretchy medium thickness material. I wouldn't say they are the most flattering things in the world but if you opt for boot cut in a dark colour in a thick material they aren't too bad and let's be honest, they are functional rather than for fashion purposes.

As I said, I wear them for those 2 purposes and as chilling out at home doesn't have much style or finesse to it, I decided to show an outfit for exercise.
plus size / curvy outfit for casual wear and for gym and excercise

I like to keep it simple, flattering and functional when it comes to work out excercise wear. These trainers add some fun, colour and femininity. I'd obviously add a sports bra, sports socks, throw my hair up and out of the way and no make up.

Do you love these trainers as much as I do? Leave me a comment and let me know if you wear trackie bums for the same things I do!

  1. Great illustration of your ideal gym wear - those sneaks are amazing :)

  2. I love that you call them trackie bums; can I use that? I styled mine this week and it's actually a look I like (though I went with a pair that were cropped). My other trackie bums, though, will remain hidden from blogview for as long as humanly possible.

  3. Helen omg how cute is the term trackie bums, I love it! I love how terms for the same thing can be different depending on where you live, I learned something new! :) But yeah I love how you added the colorful workout shoes. I really think I need some cute colored ones because mine are black and grey which aren't too fun. hehe


  4. That would be a really cute gym outfit!


Thanks for commenting. It makes my day! :)
