It’s much easier to opt in for a girls’ day on the green when you have cute, comfortable, well-fitted clothes to perform in.
Golf styles have needed a refresh for a while, which is why KINONA exists. It’s challenging enough to find cute golf clothing for straight sizes much less in the mid to plus size ranges. Thankfully, many clothing brands, including KINONA, now offer extended sizing and thoughtful features that allow all women to feel fabulous.
Never again take a rain check on a round because you lack confidence in your clothing! Let’s break down what to look for in plus size golf clothes.
Plus size clothing is often frumpy and loose fitting, made to cover up your body rather than accentuate its curves. But in truth, oversized, shapeless clothing is not the answer. Instead of selecting styles that are loose and can get in the way when you are being active, choose pieces that are form-fitting but also roomy enough so you can move with ease. It’s best to have a well-fitted top or skort that’s designed to maneuver through swings without discomfort.
Look for clothing that has a fashionable, top-of-the-line fit with mindful shaping features that flatter your figure. Differentiating details like wide, smoothing waistbands provide comfort and a lovely silhouette without being constricting. Pay attention to the placement of pleating, zippers, and racing stripes which can change the shape of a piece and either work with or against your figure. Seek out styles you feel comfortable wearing that complement your figure.
“Great fabric, large waistband, true fit and very comfortable."

With any activewear, performance is key! If an outfit is cute but the top rides up every time you swing or the shorts dig into your middle, you won’t perform at your best. Fussing over clothing on the course is never fun nor helpful to your game. Plus it draws attention to your clothes and how you feel in them rather than your game.
When trying on golf clothes, put the pieces to the test. Move around, bend over, and take a few practice swings before snipping the tags to ensure you have full range of motion. If something feels off or uncomfortable in the fitting room, it’s only going to become more noticeable on the course.
KINONA golf clothing is made with performance top of mind. From thoughtful features like strategic pockets that don’t add inches to our Italian 4-way stretch materials that won’t inhibit range of motion, our clothes are a standout in the market. Plus they’re designed to stand up to wear, coming out of the laundry wrinkle-free and looking brand new, wash after wash.
“I am 5’10”, overweight and almost 70 years old. This dress is extremely well constructed and wearable. I played eighteen in it and the cut and design are so good! The undershorts are generously cut and the dress is stylish, conservative and comfortable."

Whether you are playing in the hottest of climates or just tend to run hot, another important consideration when buying plus size golf clothes is the material. Avoid heavy, non-breathable fabrics that keep sweat on your skin. Instead opt for technical fabrics that are antimicrobial and moisture-wicking for even your sweatiest pursuits. you’ll want to have breathable fabrics that can easily layer to create different looks and keep you comfy on chilly mornings.
Steer clear of clingy materials that restrict movement or bulky pieces that give a boxy look. Ideally, the material should flow with you, maintaining and accentuating your shape no matter how you move.
KINONA apparel outperforms the competition when it comes to hot weather play. With ECONYL® (regenerated, high-quality nylon) and Lycra (a lot like swimwear) you’ll stay cool and protected from the sun since every piece gives you UPF 50+ sun protection.
“The material is like butter! The fit is slim enough to be flattering but not so tight it's clingy. It's also a great length and stayed down during a golf swing.”
– Mary S. | KINONA Customer
As with any piece of clothing you spend your hard-earned money on, versatility is key. It’s important to buy clothing you actually like and enjoy wearing. Look for pieces that fit into your lifestyle off the fairway too. Ask yourself if an item can be worn for other occasions like working out, hitting the office, enjoying a lunch date, or lounging at home.
This versatility is something that sets our brand apart. Our designer, Jarlath Mellett, comes from the fashion world and brings an eye to on-trend style that inspires every piece of KINONA clothing. Our pieces can easily be dressed up or down depending on the situation.
“I was looking for some comfortable and warm weather friendly dresses for this summer - and this dress is IT! I'm 5'10" and this dress has enough length to make me feel comfortable that I won't flash the world when I bend over.”

Shopping for clothes online, especially as a plus size or curvy woman can be a challenge. Standard size charts are frustrating and often inconsistent across brands. The KINONA line ranges from XXS, roughly a size 0, to XXL, which equates to a size 20 to 22. Check out our Universal Size Chart for specific measurements of each size.
To combat the often inconsistent nature of universal sizing, we now offer a Virtual Fitting Room for most KINONA pieces. Instead of measuring your body against the standard size guide, our Virtual Fitting Room allows women to consider body shape when looking at how a specific style might look on their body. The virtual fitting room is a solution that makes shopping online a much smoother experience.
