It's no secret that options are limited when it comes to plus size athleisure clothing. Thankfully, Nike just released their first plus-size collection, and they're starting out with all the staples. The range includes everything from sports bras and leggings to tops and jackets, so you can rock it at the gym or as streetwear. Where can you buy Nike's plus size line, you ask? Stocking up on athleisure has never been easier.
Nike created a 44-piece line of plus-size activewear ranging from sizes 1X to 3X. According to a press release, the brand does plan to expand sizing in the future, saying, “Nike’s product range will continue to expand to ensure there is a perfect fit for every athlete.” While there's obviously a long way to go before athletic wear is truly inclusive, this is a step in the right direction coming from such a big brand. According to their website, the collection features leggings, jackets, tops, shorts, and sports bras.
As of Mar. 3, the only place to shop the collection is online. Bustle has reached out to Nike to find out if the line will arrive in stores. Every piece in the collection ranges from $32 to $120, which means the price range is on track with their non-plus items.
Whether you're looking for something to wear to the gym or just make your wardrobe a little more athleisure-friendly, Nike has something for you. The brand created their classic Nike t-shirts and plain jackets as well as items with mesh cut-outs and printed leggings.

As of Mar. 3 at 11 a.m. ET, all of the pieces are currently in stock on Nike's website. It seems that this is a permanent part of the site now, so I wouldn't worry about these items flying off the shelves and not being able to snag them. I'd still head over there to get your favorites though.
Fingers crossed that the brand comes out with even more designs, widens the size range even more, and brings the plus range to stores. For now, be sure to stock up online.
