Top Plus Size Walking Shirts and Tops


Updated April 06, 2014

Walking tops must move with you, wick away moisture, and keep you comfortable on your walks. I prefer modern technical fabrics that wick away sweat, but some will feel most comfortable in cotton.

Shop Junonia's line of plus-size sports bras. I like the ones that come in black or a dark color, if it gets too hot, I can take off my shirt without embarrassment. The sweat-wicking fabric will keep you dry. They have bras that provide minimal support and those that have maximum "no bounce" control. Sizes 0X-6X.

This bra was designed to be fully customizable, with straps that can be worn in racerback style or over-the-shoulder configuration. Each strap has eight inches of adjustment, and the bottom chest band is also fully adjustable. Yet you won't have to adjust it each time as it has a zip-front closure. You can get just the compression and support you want with the fit you need. It comes in sizes from small to 4Luxe.

8. Moving Comfort Dash T-Shirt
