    Default Plus-sized Tennis/golf skirts, etc?

    I am new to tennis. As a plus-sized person, I am having trouble finding skirts that fit. I have a couple from Costco that are athletic and slim/form-fitting BUT I would love some proper golf/tennis skirts that are not slim fitting. The slim fitted style gets caught on the tennis balls that I store betw the spandex short and my leg and the skirt rides up throughout play. Any recommendations, possibly for a slightly longer golf skirt? I cannot believe that I am having such a difficult time. Plus-sized people play golf and tennis too. I am so eager for cooler weather so I can wear my capris and a jacket to store the tennis balls. Grrr!!! Prayers that my size will shrink down to an XL soon.

    Welcome to tennis! There are lots of online stores for tennis stuff, not sure about sizing but you could check out tennis-warehouse.com, tennisexpress.com, and midwestsports.com (although sometimes I think they're all the same site lol). I've also had luck with stuff at amazon.

    As far as ball storage - I cannot handle the pocket thing in the leg. I was always fighting to get the ball in and out, and it just seems like it's in the way. So now I keep them in my waistband on my hip/back, I just kind of shove it in there. I've also seen people with a clip type thing to hold a ball on your waistband. https://www.tennisexpress.com/babola...ip-white-32952

    Good luck!

    Nordstrom Rack. They carry Nike and Adidas plus size athletic wear. I’ve seen tennis skirts there before.
