The Best Plus Size Ponte Leggings: 7 Winning Brands

what are the best plus size ponte leggings

A reader reached out to me in my Instagram DMs asking about ponte leggings. This person wanted to know what are the best ponte leggings available at least in a size 3XL.

I reached out in the Wardrobe Oxygen Community and did some of my own research and here are the best plus size ponte leggings. My criteria for the best plus size ponte leggings:

  • Available at least up to 3XL. I also looked at size charts to ensure a 3XL for this retailer is at least a traditional size 24.
  • Made from ponte, just ponte. No glaze, no faux leather panels, these are solid ponte leggings that are free of embellishments or finishes that won't make them a wardrobe staple.
  • Available at least in black. Other colors are great, but black was a basic and a must for this search.
  • Variety of price points. We all have different budgets and priorities and I wanted to have the list only be worthy of your money, but also a price that works with your lifestyle and wardrobe priorities.

    Yes I will be buying some of these. I have just exercise wear and jeans. Well with a Menopause tummy the jeans are probably going away. Any help and ideas are welcome!

      I agree that Lands End have great leggings that last and wash really well. Up until I started buying them I hated that most black leggings fade with each wash.

      Unfortunately Christopher and Banks are closing all their stores, and it’s not clear what’s happening with their website.

    I recently got a pair of Supertech Pocket Leggings from Soft Surroundings. This is a store that I *never* shop at, but I had a store credit from a gift return, and these pants were a major surprise win. I’m a 12/14 and got the Large. I just checked and they go up to 3X.
