Authentic is about being real, whether you fit the norm or not. Founded by plus size yogi, mom and businesswomen, Taryn Springhall, because of her own struggle to find active wear for fuller figures that was comfortable, functional and fabulous. Since her brainchild in 2019, Authentic is now a range of unique, edgy active wear for real women of all shapes and sizes. 

Made from premium performance and 100% recycled fabrics, our range is designed to enhance (not hide) your curves, giving you the freedom to move without needing to constantly adjust your clothing. Every design has been tried and tested by real women with real bodies.

Available in sizes L – 4XL, our active wear leggings are suitable for high- to low-impact exercise or trendy athleisure wear on the weekends. Higher and wider reinforced waistbands are specially designed to not slip down, with no front seams or stitching between the legs make for a comfortable, flattering fit.

We’re not just about the clothes…all our garments are locally produced in Cape Town by small businesses and The Sewing Café - a social impact organisation that is working to empower members of the Masiphumelele township community with income-generating skills.

We’re committed to being real. We hope you find the perfect fit for your body. Get in touch if you have any questions, comments or feedback on
