Depending on the manufacturer I can wear XL's. Nike actually offers XXL's; the shorts are too big and the tighter fitting tops just don't cut it in the area of the "boobicles", at least for me. Until I found the Nike Dedication Sport Top! Can you hear the angels singing? I can. :) The top comes in sizes 1X to 3X.
If you are looking for a looser fitting top, this is not it. This is form fitting. It has a flattering fit, believe it or not, but the 1X was a little long on me, but just right in the bust. If I were juding I would say these run a little small size-wise, but does that surprise anyone who tries to find pluss apparel?
I wear this top for both cycling and running and even though it still requires a racer-back bra underneath (because it offers little support!) I like that it is form fitting (more like a bike jersey). For the die-hard cyclist, you might prefer jersey for the pockets on the back, but I keep my feasting necessities in my bento box. I hate running in a bike jersey; it's just too heavy!
Anyway, this would be a great all-around workout garment... everything from yoga to cardio. I scored mine on the Clearance rack at Academy for just over $14 bucks. Not sure if it was a mistake, but my gain! :)
Also, Moving Comfort just released their new fall line today -- like right as I was writing this post I saw the email... I'm going to check-out the offerings and summarize! But looking quickly I saw running tights in capri length for extended sizes. Yippy! :)
