One of my favorite things about LA I talk about this a lot is that I get to spend a ton of time outdoors and enjoy nature. One of the things that have helped me be more adventures when it comes to outdoor activities is seeing activewear brands embrace all women and I love getting to partner with brands like REI who are celebrating women of all shapes and sizes. REI is committed to being size inclusive and offering more sizes for more women. In 2017, REI launched Force of Nature and the Less Labels, More Sizes initiative to support women of all ages, shapes, and sizes in their outdoor pursuits. They believe that a life outdoors is a life well lived which also means making it possible for all women to get outside with gear that fits.
I love that REI is always actively working to outfit more women with more apparel and gear options so they can live their best lives outside. I was excited to try this REI Co-op Active Pursuits zip-top and tights. I love how soft and breathable the zip-top is. Plus the 4-way stretch dries quickly and provides UPF 50+ sun protection. The zip-top pairs perfectly with these REI Co-op Active Pursuits tights which have a comfy and wide waistband, breathable mesh inserts, and reflective tape on the backs of the calves help you stay visible in low light. Shop their Plus and Extended sizes.
REI also has the most amazing workshops tailored to all activity levels. I recently spent the day in Catalina Island with one of my best friends. We did a 3-mile kayak around the island, enjoyed some relaxing time at the spa, and ended the day with a yoga class overseeing the beautiful harbor. Check out REI events and workshops here. REI is also hosting an event in their Tustin store for plus size women. This free event is designed to bring women together to try-on clothing and build community.
