I've been going to the gym and have come to the conclusion that I am going to have to bite the bullet and get some leggings as the pants I wear now are too loose. But at the same time I sure I will be uncomfortable as who wants to look at a fat chick in leggings?

I've been looking online and I'm a size 20 in normal clothes but when I look at the size guides my measurements seem to be way off the chart. I have some size 20 Michelle Bridges leggings (which have a skirt attached) but I look weird in them (because of the skirt I think), so I was hoping to get a more traditional pair.

Does anyone have any tips on where to get a good pair? Should I just go to Big W?

I go to Big W and Kmart for leggings.

I think City Chic has am active wear range, but more dollars.

I honestly don't think anyone is thinking/judging you at the gym, they are focussed on their own work out 😊

Good luck!

I like Michelle bridges range from big w. They are squat proof.

Best and less do an ok range also.

Running bare is my go to for tops and leggings but they are a bit more pricey.

I am a 16 but also like the MB leggings. I work out fairly hard and so far they have been good.
Some of the sports brands like nike do larger sizes these days too so its worth looking in Amart or whatever they are called lately.

I bought a fantastic pair of plus size leggings at Big W just last week.

They have a really wide waist band and fitted perfectly as I have a big bum and much smaller waist.  Comfy all over instead of having a loose/gaping waist.

And only $6.

Am heading back for some more.

I believe I've bought the same leggings. I have found out of all the cheap leggings, they are the most comfortable, however with poorest longevity. Only lasted a couple of months before seams fraying and the fabric perishing.

I bought some online recently at Pop Fit. Lots of different designs and mine are wearing well.
