BeKeane Activewear was born out of a need for leggings and tops that were of high quality fabrics and made well, with pockets, high waists and ties, and funky fun prints.
During a weight loss journey I discovered there were no well known activewear brands going above a size 16. In fact, I was turned away from one shop as they had "nothing of my size"!
I didn't want anyone else to feel humiliated or be disheartened because there was nothing for them. I also hated the size label and knew many others did too, so we use names for sizes (there is no standard sizes in the industry). We range from a Primrose (6) to a Voluptuous (38).
I myself, the Founder and Director am curvy and have ridden the size up and down diet hamster wheel and so have an inside understanding of what is required to fit women and girls with curves properly!
The prints are fun and funky, but we also have some serious black options.
We are very proud of our quality and have yet to have any leggings in 5 years returned due to a manufacturer issue.
I used my experience as a personal trainer to ensure that the leggings have everything needed if you are going to work out in them.
They are squat proof and they don't fall down or ride up!
