Well just for a change- let's talk about sport and ski gear! If you are a man, there are range of clothing that go up to XXXL- but for women, XL is the largest for ski clothing. And if larger women want to take up sport, instead of sitting at home and cry + put more weight on- they have to becoming very clever at adapting clothing made for people 20-30cm cm or more taller- it took me years to work out how to shorten sleeves and trousers legs which have special closures, zips and elastics, etc. Enough to put any woman trying to become or remain more active- off altogether (fortunately not me).
If it's just gym and running etc, I thought that really obese people only wore exercise clothing such as tracksuits?

But for more specialised sports clothing it's more of a question of supply and demand.
Sorry if this sounds crass but one just doesn't see that many obese people (male or female) skiing and snowboarding.
