Glad to help - us big gals have to stick together as too many lines who say they have XL+ sizes seem to think a size 14 is XL. =/ If I can help in any other way please feel free to contact me. I started running at a size 22-26 depending on the cut. One year later am down about 30 lbs and down to a 18-22 depending on the cut.

Thank you, for your input I greatly appreciate it.

Progress may be slow, but it happens!

I started in Danskin as that was the only one for a decent price that I could fit in (yep was that big). Now have lost weight and inches and wear Cascade sports, running capris from Runningskirt.com, and RawThreads.com stuff. My personal favorite is RawThreads (not a paid spokesperson or comped for my opinion). Their clothing line is a bamboo blend. It wicks, I love the way it feels and moves and am in the process of moving all my running gear to their line.

I am a plus size runner and get too hot in the insulated pants. I stick with the compression pants (full length) and warm up in no time once I am moving.

I would like some input from anyone who is running and plus size. What brand of insulated pants do you run in during the cold months. How do they rate overall?
