Plus Size Walking Pants for Women

Walking pants must move with you, wick away moisture, and keep you comfortable on your walks. I prefer modern technical fabrics that wick away sweat, but some will feel most comfortable in cotton. For long walks or for travel, you may want convertible pants so you don't have to pack or change into shorts when it warms up.


These nylon/elastane stretch pants get great reviews. The fabric has Omni-shield water-repellency for drizzly days (but not waterproof!) They have a front snap closure and also an interior drawstring to customize your fit. They dry fast and are great for travel. They have zip-closed security pocket for your small essentials. Available in sizes 16 Plus to 24 Plus and in black or charcoal.


RBX makes tights, leggings, and capris for plus size women, from 1X to 3X. They don't have pockets, but they do have a wide waistband and fun prints and patterns. Feel fashionable as you enjoy your walking workouts. They are made from polyester and spandex to wick away moisture and move with you. They also have basic black, for those of us who need to coordinate with the rest of our walking gear.

I generally don't recommend cotton pants, but many walkers like the feel of cotton. These cotton/spandex pants come in a great range of sizes and in average, petite and tall lengths. For those of us with hard-to-fit bodies, that is important. They have zippered slash pockets at the hip, which I highly favor for walking. They come plus sizes 1X-6X and average, petite and tall lengths.
