Tips on Selling Athletic Wear on PoshmarkQ: Why should I be selling athletic wear on Poshmark?

A: So athletic wear is not something that I heavily invest in for Poshmark. Over the past year, I have managed to sell everything that I have listed on the site. Athletic wear or “athleisure wear” as it is also called, is really big right now so it definitely will sell on the app. Depending on what the item is, it may or may not be a quick flip for me. Athletic wear is not something that I love selling on the app. However, when I do list it, some pieces sell better than others and people are definitely loyal to their brands.

Q: What style athletic wear should I sell? 

A: I typically try to stick to leggings and pants, but I like to sell sweatshirts and long sleeve tops as well.
