How to Find the Perfect Yoga Pants

Yoga may be a practice with a spiritual basis but the primary concern that most yogis (at least female practitioners) have when choosing their yoga pants is: does my butt look good in these? Are they comfortable AND flattering? Will they stretch/bag out after I practice in them? What kind of rise is too high/too low? And what will they do if I sweat in these? (Who has not suffered the dreaded crotch -sweat look)?

For the discerning yogi, here are some things to consider when finding that perfect pant:

1. Color – it’s a cliche but dark colors like black, brown, dark blue are easier to wear and more flattering than other hues. Grey marle (the old school athletic sports grey of old gym shirts) is cute but risks making you look a bit collegiate. Plus it really shows sweat. White is a stunning shade to pull off and de riguer for Kundalini yoga practitioners. A form-fitting pair of white pants requires supreme confidence and if you feel you have the legs to do it, go for it!

2. Fabric– the trick is to find something that has good weight and has that nice thigh/butt/waist support factor without feeling you’re wearing a wetsuit. This is especially important if you’re wearing a lighter color for the ‘cling’ factor. Look for fabrics that are ideally natural fibers as they allow your body to breathe when doing a challenging practice. Cotton/Lycra mixes are ideal and organic cotton is even better. Something that you can also just throw in the washing machine is essential. Most pants for active wear should also be color-fast.

3. Cut – this is critical in finding that perfect pant. The most flattering length for a variety of body shapes is the bootleg with a little flare at the ankle. They make your legs look longer and the hips look proportionate. A wide-waist band is also key to avoid being cut in half in forward bends and feeling secure and supported. Most people feel best when the waist-band sits an inch or so above the hips. Another bane of yoga pants is the dread ‘camel toe’ look at the crotch. Avoid this by making sure the pants are not too tight across the thigh and the rise is not too low. An interesting detail such as a faux fly, will help to minimize this.

All of the above information also goes for shorter length pants also, such as capris, although the boot cut, as mentioned, is the most flattering cut.

When you find those perfect pants, don’t forget to take good care of them! Do not use bleach, or overly hot water when washing your pants. This will cause undue wear and tear. Once you found those pants, treat them like your best friend – with care!

When you have the pants, the rest of your outfit is a breeze!
