Inclusive clothing brand Universal Standard just launched a workout line for women sizes 10-28, and it’s about time someone did!
We love the NYC-based brand for its stylish, elegant, and ethically-produced pieces that redefine plus-size fashion. The women-owned business offers anything-but-basic garments for sizes 10 and up, and accessories including plus-size jewelry.
The company’s latest offering is a 5-piece collection of active wear. GAME by Universal Standard is the first workout wear collection for the brand, and it’s equal parts performance-optimizing and cool looking.
It’s not just straight-sized folks who are working out, but sometimes it seems like the athletic fashion industry thinks so. Fast fashion options are available in larger sizes, but they’re not always chic. Universal Standard is out to shake things up.
Alex Waldman, Universal Standard’s Co-founder and CCO, tells HelloGiggles,
“This consumer is so consistently sidestepped in terms of quality and performance, that she is in a continual state of waiting to be taken seriously. We knew what was missing not only from the constant stream of feedback from this consumer — but from being this consumer.”
GAME utilizes cutting-edge fabrics with antimicrobial properties and sweat-wicking technology so you can stay so fresh and so clean while getting your grind on. The tops and leggings come in a range of bright colors and neutrals, but Universal Standard has plans to expand. We can’t wait to see what they dream up next.
Peep the Universal Standard GAME collection:
1Power Move Tee, $65

2Naked Armor Bodysuit, $85
The nylon and lycra bodysuit is the next best thing to naked. Great for yoga, dance, or throw a skirt over it for a casual-cool vibe.
3Pace Setter 3/4 Leggings, $65
A 3/4 length legging with extra compression and a high waist for a sleek and supportive garment. Antimicrobial and sweat-wicking fabric will keep you cool during the gnarliest workout.
