Plus Size Workout Capris With Pockets In Cute Prints And Solids

by LPerry

Plus size workout capris with pockets give you a place to tuck away small items when you need your hands free to jog or exercise.

Finding workout capris isn't too hard if you wear regular sizes. It might even be easy to find plus size bottoms that go up to a size 2X or 3X. The challenge is finding larger sizes that have pockets built-in. Some women simply want the option of having a pocket to use so they can travel lightly and concentrate on their workout. Luckily, there are manufactures out there that make capris in larger sizes with pockets.

Yoga Reflex Capris With Basic Pockets

These workout capris by Yoga Reflex are made with a special type of 4-way matte fabric that is supposed to help camouflage little humps and bumps for a smoother look. They have a hidden inner pocket that is approximately 3'' by 3 1/4" large. Another feature is the wide waistband which sits slightly below the natural waist. I am amazed that these pants come in 40 different color choices!


Snazzy Prints With Hidden Key Pocket

These hip and trendy capris are made of peachskin stretch jersey. According to the manufacturer, the fabric is supposed to have reflective qualities that show up better at night. The garment is also constructed with a wider waistband for a smooth fit and comfort during workouts. What I find interesting about these pants is the differing opinions with Amazon customers about the hidden key pocket. Some say they do not come with pockets, others say that they do. Yes, these capris have a hidden key pocket; it's located in the back waistband.

Camo Print Capris

If you like the camouflage look, these wild plus size workout capris have a really cool pattern. They get positive reviews for comfort and quality. The material is lightweight, yet doesn't have that dreaded see-thru problem that many legging-type garments have.

I really like the tall waistband area and find it a flattering way to let spandex do its work; making the tummy area look smoother and flatter.

What Difference Does A Pocket Make?

Remember when we could hang a key around our neck or tuck them into a shoe, sock, or bra during workouts? Back in the day before the influx of gym memberships and specialized classes we could count on keeping our keys safe and secure. Today, the name of game is pure freedom.

If you want to take a quick jog around the block with your dog, you can just tuck your house key into your hidden pocket and go. Workout pants with hidden pockets give you someplace to put your gym locker room key.

Workout Capris Are Great As Basic Loungewear

I don't think you have to be an exercise fiend to find stretch capri pants a versatile part of your wardrobe. They are the kind of garment that you can wear around the house for comfort as well as for running errands.

Wearing something formfitting that hugs your figure can be a great reminder to watch your calories and stay away from those fattening cookies.

Media Pockets-Will We See Them On Leotards And Bathing Suits Next?

Our love of technology is changing the fashion industry

When is a pocket not really a pocket? When it is called a media pocket. People are simply unwilling to leave their cell phones behind. Exercising can be much more fun if you can tuck a small music player into a pocket. The challenge is finding some way to carry a phone or music device when your outfit is skin tight.

Manufacturers solved this problem by creating wider waistbands with a slit in the fabric. The natural clinging qualities of lycra spandex materials helps keep the precious media device where it belongs; in the pocket.

Because cell phones are expensive and contain personal information, it makes sense that we don't want to lay them just anywhere when we are out in public. Even if we have to tuck them into our workout pants, that's what we have to do in order to concentrate on our fitness goals without fear of theft or loss.
