I'm very self-conscious but covering myself with baggy shirts and sweatpants just isn't going to work out for me, and maybe if I have some stuff that's cute, I won't be as self-conscious. At the very least, I need to get some new pants that have a pocket for my keys (I'm a size 18W on the bottom). I also need sports bras (I'm a 40I) and maybe some tank tops (I'm a 2XL). I don't want to spend a ton because I am actively loosing weight and so I hope they only fit for a few months. I see a ton of stuff on Amazon, but I would really like some recommendations from actual people that I "know". Thanks!
Cute clothes definitely help. Do you have any outlet malls near you? Not sure on sizing but my UA outlet has up to size 2XL I believe. I was 1X when I started working out but saw 2XL.
DSG brand at Dick's sporting goods also is reasonable, has cute stuff and is up to 2XL (pretty sure). There dressings rooms are also open here if you wanted to see how they felt first.
I can't comment on whether there are pockets. I bought a waist sport pack for my things when I am out walking and exercising. I like it because I live in very rural area so I attach pepper spray right to it. There have been wild animals in peoples yards and such (Bob cats, bears and coyotes are definitely around the walking paths at night).
The pack is great because it's super lightweight but holds keys, my phone, money, ID, chapstick for winter, couple tissues. I don't always take all of that all the time 🤣 but in the winter when my lips are chapped and my nose is running from cold, tissues/chapstick are a definitely necessity. I wear cold weather gear and again NO pockets.
Elomi energize sports bras for sure! They are the best. I like compression capris and dri fit tees. Old Navy, Kohls, and Meijer have affordable options. Nike and UA both have plus size workout lines. Zella is good too but pricey. I also like the All in Motion line at Target.
old navy is my jam for workout bottoms. I am a 16 and wear their XL bottoms. I also wear their XL tops. I do not love their bras, but I do love their tops. They have this one that I am obsessed with--I have it in every color and pattern because you can choose how tight/loose/long it is depending on how you tie it:

I used to really like the Old Navy leggings or capris but then I got some from Lane Bryant’s Livi active line and they work so much better for my body (I am 18/20 and carry most of my weight in my midsection). No rolling/sliding down or shifting of the waist. They don’t all have pockets though, so check the details. On clearance, I can find them around or under $20 sometimes.
I can’t speak to their plus size line, but I swear by Old Navy compression leggings for working out. The PowerSoft version are nice for lighter workouts, but I prefer the compression for harder stuff. I wear an L in them as a size 12/14.
For a high-impact sports bra, I love my SheFit because it’s fully adjustable. I’m a 38F and had a hard time getting some high-impact sports bras on/off but the SheFit doesn’t have that issue.
As much as people dislike Walmart I have found they usually have a good selection of plus size workout clothes (plus bras, underwear, etc). Both in store to actually try on and online. And I like the way the way they fit and feel and they have held up really well.
Ditto this but for 20% off any order Over $150 use HELLOATH20 they have free returns and quality is amazing. Also with leggings and tanks I can go between lots of sizes so I think as you lose you will be able to keep wearing them, not so much shirts and shorts
My favorite leggings/crops are the athleta salutation stash pocket, but since those are $$$ I also have a bunch of Marika (from Zulily, they are often $12.99-$19.99) with side pockets or from Old Navy.
I’m the same size in bottoms and athlete XL fits me great, the 1x is too big. I’d check out the sale, it is a bit pricey but the quality if great. Now, if you think you’re losing more weight I’d prob go to Old navy for some less expensive options, I wear an XL in bottoms there also for reference.
Ok douche, go ahead and call it mud. My husband DID have halitosis. We addressed it after I talked to you girls on here and guess what? Years later, no problem. Mofongo, you're a cunt. Eat shit. ~anonnamus

Thank you all. I ordered some pants and a bra from Walmart and they should be in next week. I still have A LOT of weight to lose, so hopefully these at least hold up long enough until they become too big
