Washington State University has announced new research out of their Department of Apparel, Merchandising, Design and Textiles that reveals heterosexual plus size women are forced to wear men’s clothing to workout. Marginalized by the fitness industry, plus size females are not provided feminine clothing to comfortably workout and are consequently victim to the idea that “if a woman wants to be fashionable she just needs to lose weight,” says Assistant Professor Deborah Christel of WSU.
