Junonia was created in 1995 to help our customers be proud to be active women. We sell products that fit, are fashionable and functional exclusively for the woman who wears a size 14 and up. One of our slogans is, frankly, a bit “size-ist”. We want to make smaller women jealous that they can’t wear the products we make for the plus size market.
Recently we have renamed our company to JunoActive by Junonia to more clearly reflect our focus - and it's easier to say and spell. At JunoActive we help women to be proud of whom they are. We sell products that help women look good, exercise comfortably, and enjoy the experience. Fit, fashion, and function.
Plus size women have long fought the stereotype that they were big because they didn’t exercise. That it was somehow their fault for being larger than a stick thin fashion model. Oprah ran a marathon. Serena Williams plays a mean game of tennis. Ever seen women playing basketball in the WNBA? And Kara Whitely, a JunoActive customer, will climb Kilimanjaro for a third time this year. Exercise is not a vehicle for weight loss or something to be tolerated in a quest to be fit. It’s a lifestyle. It’s a personal commitment to health, to a body that you respect.
It’s often said that clothes make the woman, but at JunoActive we believe that clothes liberate the woman to be what she wants to be. Liberates her to enjoy an active lifestyle. Every woman deserves to enjoy being fit. All women should be able to reap the benefits of exercise, whether it is a good walk with friends or a long bike ride through the scenic parts of her city. JunoActive was created because women who wanted to exercise could not find clothes that fit well. JunoActive has proven over more than 15 years in business that it is a myth that big women don’t exercise and aren’t interested in stylish clothing designed for the active woman.
JunoActive understands the needs of large female athletes or “soccer moms” who like to kick the ball around as well as transport their children to matches. We offer technical fabrics, wicking materials, stretch fiber in the right places, not just for elite athletes, but also for the everyday plus sized woman. Through the years JunoActive has built a loyal base of satisfied, active, plus sized customers who appreciate a company that listens to their needs. Makes products that fit their requirements and help them meet their fitness goals.

JunoActive’s Wicking Fabrics: QuikWik® and QuikCool™
Performance fabrics aren’t just for marathoners! Everyday athletes need the cooling and drying power of top-notch technical fabrics. Large bodies in motion create heat, and these fabrics are designed to manage heat and moisture—pushing it away from the body to keep a dry zone close to the skin. Why is this important? In hot weather it means no clammy, clingy shirts that reduce healthy perspiration. In cold weather it means a dry air pocket next to the skin that insulates for warmth. Really quite amazing! Add to that value the fast drying nature of these fabrics, and you can see why these items are some of JunoActive’s most popular.
