It’s challenging to find women’s golf fashion that fits your style, is comfortable, and adheres to golf courses’ dress codes. If you are plus-sized, the task is even more daunting. We found three companies that work to make sure that larger ladies look sexy and savvy on the links.
Nancy Lopez Golf
Founded by women’s golfing icon Nancy Lopez, the label added a plus-sized line, the “Lopez Plus Collection.” Nancy herself has always been open about her struggles with extra pounds and decided that as other brands left this target market, it would be a great opportunity for Nancy Lopez Golf. The company did lots of market research and sought help from other LPGA players to ensure the line was functional for players as well as flattering. Lopez’s Plus Collection includes tops in sizes 1X – 3X and one short and one skort up to size 22. The line also has a sweater and a few pieces of outerwear (shown above). NancyLopezGolf.com
Pinks and Greens
Allison Dorst started Pinks and Greens, an online women’s golf apparel boutique in 2009 and quickly saw that larger women weren’t being catered to from the clothing labels. So, Alison decided to feature plus-sized clothing and has even worked with some manufacturers to create larger options. A few of her favorite brands who care for larger ladies? EP Pro and Cutter & Buck. EP Pro has sizes up to 1X in tops and 20-22 in bottoms; while Cutter & Buck has one polo up to size 4X.
Because Allison’s site offers clothing from several vendors, she offers a wide selection of bottoms and outerwear (only up to 1X) and makes it easy to shop by offering filters for size, color, and style. Newcomers to the site also get 10% off their first purchase with promo code “10Off.” PinksandGreens.com
Junonia was created by Anne Kelly of Minnesota in 1995 who was inspired by the lack of plus-sized active wear in the market. “Fit and movement are paramount to me,” says Anne. The shorts and skirts are double-ply to ensure durability and ease in movement. They also use thicker fabrics to ensure that items don’t cling and make noise when you walk.
While Junonia’s clothes aren’t the most glamorous, they are available in sizes up to 6X, feature wicking and UV-protecting materials, and are very affordable. Anne is so sure that you’ll love her line, there is a 100% money-back guarantee and her personal email is on the website’s home page. Junonia.com
