Mbali Ndlovu, who is the founder of Lukafit, started the brand to give women of color a range of sizes to choose from — her clothes go up to 3x in leggings and 2x in sports bras — athleticwear that’s designed to fit comfortably.

Lukafit leggings come in vibrant, bright colors with cheeky prints and are made from “squat-proof” material. Which sounds great because sheer activewear just isn’t a vibe. These promise to stay in place no matter what.

Professional tap dancers Chloe and Maud Arnold created functional and stylish pieces designed both dancing and working out. You might want to lounge around in this one too because it’s so comfortable.

This dance-appropriate unitard comes in blue, pink, and neon green, and while it’s one-size-fits-most, it appears to be made from extremely stretchy material. The biketard- which is the shorts version is all sold out so act quick.

Queen Malkia


Made from four-way stretch, anti-bacterial fabric with sublimated prints, so the print will stay intact, Queen Malkia features bold, African prints on sports bra and legging sets.

Each sports bra has different strap details to add a unique element to your set. Great combo of bold, functional and comfortable.
