Women's Plus Sizes
Style and Function for Plus-Sized Women Tennis Players
Fashionable and functional tennis apparel for women of all sizes is increasing in popularity on the courts.
When looking to purchase women's plus sizes skirts or skorts tennis apparel, it's important to consider 4 factors: tennis skirt or skort cut, length, waistband, and garment fabric. Let's take a look at each.
1. Tennis Skirt or Skort Cut
When selecting the right women's plus sizes tennis apparel, the cut of the tennis skirt or skort is important. A-line, pleated, and straight cuts are the most popular styles for tennis skirts, although A-line skirts and skorts will be more flattering to plus-size figures. A-line cuts won't cling to legs as straight cuts can.
Pleated skirts and skorts are designed with more fabric for the pleats so they won't cling to legs, but they'll be heavier to wear, and will appear more bulky.
2. Tennis Skirt or Skort Length
Manufacturers of tennis skirts and skorts offer different styles in different lengths; tennis apparel for women's plus sizes included. Lengths generally range from 11-15 inches for most styles, so you should find something that fits, and covers, comfortably in this range.
Plus-size tennis skirts, skorts, shorts, and pants come with either elastic or banded waistbands, and each is a personal preference. Elastic waistbands are stretchy, while banded waistbands are going to feel more secure.
Elastic and banded waistbands also come in different widths—wide waistbands are considered more supportive and comfortable to petite players, but can be uncomfortable for plus-size figures. Again, this is a personal preference, and each waistband should be tried on to form a more accurate judgment.
Polyester and poly/cotton blends are the norm in tennis apparel—including women's plus sizes tops —as these materials are designed to keep players cool, dry, and comfortable in both cold and warm weather. Try to avoid 100% cotton apparel, due to its limited ventilation, and 100% Spandex, due to its restrictiveness.
