NBC's "The Biggest Loser" has inspired and motivated a nation of dieters and created its own cottage industry; books, Wii workouts, even protein supplements and its own fitness resort.

Now, the show is hoping to get aspiring fit folks (and the already active) dressed for workout success.

NBC/Universal, the network that airs the reality competition, has announced its collaboration with Australian intimates designer Bruno Schiavi's Jupi International to create a line of "The Biggest Loser" workout gear.

The inspiration for the line came from the show's contestants, who often complained about the shortage of wearable, comfortable workout gear available for larger people, the network said in a release.

"We are really excited to introduce a fashionable line of workout clothing which will flatter all shapes and sizes," says Kim Niemi, senior vice president, NBC Universal Consumer Products Group.

"Our goal is to make it possible for anyone to adopt the Biggest Loser lifestyle at home, in the gym or outdoors."

Schiavi is a bit of a shapewear and intimates mogul. With retail collections in Europe, Australia, South America, Canada and the United States, he launched the Annabella line of lingerie in Australia in 2002 and has also worked with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Rey on his shapewear brand.

The designer said in a statement that he is committed to creating a line that will help people "look and feel their best."

In other words, functional and stylish!

StyleList, of course, wanted to know how the gear will look, but a network spokeswoman told us no images of the garments are available yet.

If not before, we're sure to get sneak peek in September, when the gear will be worn by contestants in the next season of the long-running series.
