Loving the activewear Lola Getts girls!

Its been a while since we started stocking the activewear Lola Getts makes in the States, but it has proven extremely popular. We love her attitude, designing really nice looking gear for the curvy girls. They use real sized girls for models and design for the curves not against them! We are proud to be the New Zealand retailer of their fine garments.

Here is a quote

Lola Getts was created on real women with real curves. We use a real plus size model to fit all our styles. We use some of the finest fabrics that give you staying power and performance for long lasting wear. We use flat lock stitching to provide more comfort and less chafing. No dreaded camel toe with our diamond shaped crotch. Lola Getts is also designed, created, and sent to you from the USA!

Now for those not familiar with the phrase ‘camel toe’ we found a video on Youtube with a song that explains it. (Not for the prudish – pictures are PG13 words are a little more…um…risque).

Here are some of the products we have in stock.


Plus Sized Activewear

Finding Plus Sized Activewear

It is difficult to find clothing that is comfortable to wear when exercising especially if you are plus sized!  For a start the waist bands can roll, and clothing not stretch so well or cause chafing in all the wrong places.  So where does one start?  Well the internet is a great source for finding clothing and footwear however it can be difficult figuring out the size charts and making sure that you get the right size or else you may find yourself posting it back.

Make sure the website you find has a good size chart with measurements for each brand of clothing as they can differ in sizes which makes it very frustrating especially when you are ordering online.

Finding good quality activewear that stretches well to your body shape and holds its form after regular washing is important.   Having a Lycra content will ensure it stretches.  Look out for poorly made products which have flooded the market.

Make sure if you are just embarking on a new exercise routine that you also have quality footwear and innersoles/cushioning for support.  Exercise can be intimidating to start with.  Start with walking and build up your time and speed.  Make sure it feels good to you and you enjoy it.  There are many different activities you could try.  We’ll start with an easy one.

Walking.  Whether it is walking the dog,  taking the kids to the park or exploring new areas, walking to the shops, these capris are perfect for you and oh so comfortable around the tummy and on sale now at $50!  Yes they’re available at our online store.

So get out there and get active!



Merry Christmas, and Welcome Lola Getts Active to New Zealand!

I’m not feeling too “christmasee” this year, how about you? Personally I will be glad when the big day has passed and life can resume to just a semi-chaotic state, thats how I prefer it.

Anyway enough grinch talk, I am rudely raving on when I should be introducing a wonderful new range to BigLove, another,  all the way from the US of A…..drum roll please…..Lola Getts Active.  At last, a range of cross functional activewear for the woman who celebrates her curves, and busy lifestyle!

I had a lengthy conversation with Jodi, co-owner of Lola Getts, and among other things I asked her what had prompted her to design plus size activewear. She said that while she and her friends worked out at gym they noticed that there just wasn’t a choice of fashionable workout clothing for the bigger ‘gals’ .(loved her accent, its kinda southern…)So they put their combined talents and experience together and have come up with this stylish plus size activewear range. They used a real plus size model to create the original patterns, so the garments have true plus size shape as well as style. I loved her philosophy as well, which is exactly the same as my own, we are not all a regular size, but it is important to exercise, and keep fit. Now you can, and look really sharp too!!

So Merry Christmas y’all, check out the new range, there will be more coming in the New Year, email with any questions you may have, be safe, be cool, keep on movin’ and have some fun!!
