I am a chubby woman who likes to jog and dance. Where can I get athletic pants/shorts that stay up when I move?
In an effort to counteract a recent switch to a desk job, I've taken up jogging and Zumba. I'm starting to fall off the wagon, partially because my pants are falling off of me!
My workout pants/shorts stay in place in the store, and the moment that I start to move vigorously everything starts to jiggle and my pants slide off.
I've tried on a size smaller, and 1) I can't breathe and I worry about getting yeast infections 2)If they are shorts, my thigh fat wreaks havoc on them. Chub rub in loose shorts, forced rolling-up on tighter bicycle style shorts, the works.
Stats: US 12 - 14, 5'3".
Shape: Apple? Cello? Rectangle?
This is me
paddleboarding so you get an idea of body shape. I can't wear those shorts jogging/zumba-ing because my thighs rub together.
Similarly shaped people, what do you wear to work out? What do you do to make your pants stay up? Is it a matter of athletic pants/shorts style, or high-riding my pants, or what?
Bonus points if your recommendations are less than $40.
