Choosing the best plus size functional pants for winter sports

Among our selection of functional pants, you'll find some great pairs of plus size ski pants. Suitable for skiing or snowboarding, ski pants have all the practical features you need for fun on the slopes. They are usually waterproof and windproof to protect you from the elements. Their pockets generally have zippers, so you can safely carry your valuables in the snow. Look out for additional features that can help your comfort. For example, some ski pants have an adjustable velcro waistband, which is extremely useful to get a good fit if you have a big difference between your waist and your hips.

Plus size ski pants come in all kinds of colors. The most important thing is that there is a clear contrast between the pants and the snow, so don't be afraid to go bright! Choose a matching jacket for a polished look on the slopes, or go for a jacket in a contrasting color for a style that's as unique as you are.

Plus size functional pants for sports in the city

Plus size cycling shorts are an absolute must if you're going to be getting out on your bike! There are many features to look out for in a good pair of cycling shorts. They should be made of a breathable, moisture-wicking fabric that dries quickly and will keep sweat at bay. Reflective details are an important safety feature, keeping you visible to drivers even in bad weather. Also, look out for zippers on the pockets and padding around the seat.

Make sure you have a high-impact sports bra if you're going cycling. Plus size cycling shorts are also suitable for other sports, like running, power walking, and aerobics. In this case, a padded seat is not necessary, but a good quality moisture-wicking fabric is essential.

Frequently asked questions about our plus size functional pants for women

What should I look for in a pair of plus size ski pants?

When choosing ski pants from our range of plus size functional pants, it's important to consider the climate. Softshell ski pants are lighter and can be more comfortable in light snow or milder weather, while fully-lined ski pants are a better choice for more extreme temperatures. Look for a velcro waistband that you can adjust to fit your body perfectly, and make sure the pants are windproof and waterproof. Zippered side hems are a good choice for comfort, particularly if you are on the shorter side.

What makes a good pair of plus size sailing pants?

If you're looking for plus size functional pants for sailing, the most important thing is that they're waterproof! Good sailing pants will also be windproof and made of breathable fabric, so sweat is not a problem. They should have some kind of reinforcement at the knees and waterproof pockets that fasten with zippers. A mesh lining is handy, and so is a D-ring set at the waistband, which will allow you to quickly and easily hook your gloves, leaving your hands free.

Which plus size functional pants are the best all-rounders for different activities?

A good pair of versatile, functional pants is handy if you'd like to try new hobbies, from sailing to hiking. Look for a pair in a quick-dry, stretch fabric for comfort. Zip-off legs are a great addition, as they'll allow you to turn your pants into shorts quickly. Make sure they have roomy pockets, too - an absolute essential!
