Lola Getts provides plus sizes with trendy, functional, and well-fitting activewear- proving the athletic wear trend is just as much for plus sized women as it is for any other size.
Hey Gorgeous!: Athleisure is a huge trend in today's fashion world. Why do you think it has caught on?
Lola Getts: Who has time to go home from their workout to change? We believe women today lead such busy lives and want their wardrobe to have pieces that are multi-functional, that will take them from the gym to their daily activities or from work to the gym.
Hey Gorgeous!: How does Lola Getts try to reduce the stigma that plus size women cannot be fit?
Lola Getts: We do this by featuring curvy girls that work out and challenge themselves to lead healthy, fit lives.
Hey Gorgeous!: Why is it important for plus size women to have great activewear options?
Lola Getts: If you like what you are wearing when you go to workout, that's a motivator. Every woman, regardless of her size, wants to look on-trend no matter what activity she is doing. The curvy woman makes up 67% of the American female population and she too deserves to have fashionable activewear, that fits great, is fashionable, and is high quality.
Hey Gorgeous!: We are all guilty of wearing our yoga pants to anywhere but yoga. Besides working out, where do they come in handy most?
Lola Getts: We truly believe our Leggings and Skinny Capris can take the curvy girl from "Cardio to Cocktails". Our customer can pair our garments with a great top or blazer and wear to the office, or out during the day to run errands, and of course drinks and dancing with the girls at night!
Hey Gorgeous!: Some days it is hard to get motivated to get to the gym. Got any advice for those who lack ambition?
Lola Getts: Find an activity that you love to do and try and find a workout buddy to do it with! Every Wednesday Marcy Guevara, of The Marcy Minute, and I meet for coffee and then we do a Soul Cycle class in Beverly Hills to get our sweat on. Marcy is not your typical Soul Cycle lover but can tap it back like the skinny girls who sit in the front row.
Thanks for chatting, Stacey!
