I’m a Yoga Editor and These Are My New Favorite Leggings
Subscribe to Outside+ now to get unique access to all of our content, including sequences, instructor tips, video lessons, and much more. As the Editor in Chief of Yoga Journal, I get the opportunity to test a variety of yoga items, including mats, blocks, and essential oils. But, at my core, I’m a leggings junkie who lives in them. With the flexibility of working from home and the responsibility of knowing the finest yoga gear, this year has provided me with plenty of opportunities to satisfy my interest.
Recently, I learned about the new Puma Exhale Collection, which is a collaboration between the brand and British actress and model Cara Delevingne, who also happens to be a committed yogi.
However, I wasn’t expecting to find a new favorite yoga legging.
I haven’t been as consistent with getting on my mat, pounding the pavement (I’m an avid runner), or going to the gym as I had been before to COVID.
- Nonetheless, the instant I put on these high-waisted tights, I knew I’d discovered a new favorite that would be added to my wardrobe rotation.
- I have the leggings in ensign blue, which is a deep teal color that works with almost everything and everything.
- In general, I prefer things that are straightforward and uncomplicated to look well on me.
- Cara Delevingne, a model (not the author), appears in the Exhale Collection.
- The whole Exhale line is made up of at least 70 percent recycled polyester; these leggings are made up of 84 percent recycled polyester.
- Given that Yoga Journal is a carbon-neutral company, this struck a particularly poignant chord.
- The remainder of the collection is also available on the company’s website.
- Furthermore, the high waist is great for doing inversions (after having two children, I prefer a bit extra tummy covering, especially for performing headstand (Salamba Sirsasana) and handstand (Savasana) (Adho Mukha Vrksasana).
Puma even published a yoga session to coincide with the launch of the new collaboration. Developed by British yoga therapist Colin Dunsmuirand Delevingne, this technique is easy to learn and perform at your own convenience.

In my role as Editor in Chief of Yoga Journal, I have the opportunity to test a variety of yoga items, including mats and blocks as well as essential oils. The truth is that I’m a leggings junkie in my heart of hearts. With the flexibility of working from home and the responsibility of knowing the finest yoga gear, this year has provided me with plenty of opportunities to explore my passion for the practice of yoga.
- The new Puma Exhale Collection, a collaboration between the brand and British actress and model Cara Delevingne—who also happens to be a committed yogi—came to my attention rather recently.
- However, my expectations for discovering a new favorite yoga legging were not that high.
- When it comes to getting on my mat, pounding the street (I’m a keen runner), or going to the gym, I haven’t been as consistent as I was before to COVID.
- Nevertheless, the instant I put on these high-waisted tights, I knew I’d discovered a new favorite that would be added to my wardrobe rotation.
- Due to my lack of interest in fashion (and the fact that I have two black dogs that shed all over the home), I incline toward plain black leggings.
- However, the gold mesh side panels and the adorable gold moon phase accent on the back of each leg are really appealing to me.
- Puma provided the image.
- All of the pieces in the Exhale line are made with at least 70 percent recycled polyester, and these leggings are made with 84 percent recycled polyester.
- This was particularly poignant for us at Yoga Journal, as we are committed to carbon neutrality.
- The rest of the collection is also available on the brand’s website.
- Furthermore, the high waist is great for doing inversions (after having two children, I like a bit extra stomach covering, especially for performing headstand (Salamba Sirsasana) and handstand (Savasana) poses) (Adho Mukha Vrksasana).
In celebration of the new collaboration, Puma even published a yoga session. Developed by British yoga therapist Colin Dunsmuirand Delevingne, this technique is easy to learn and perform at your own pace.

As much as I enjoy practicing yoga, I’ve never been a lover of leggings, which may explain why I’ve never given much attention to my fitness clothing until recently. It took a pandemic, to be honest, to compel me to abandon the basic (and now tattered and faded) black yoga pants that I’d been wearing for years. Prism2’s leggings are, in the end, the update I’ve been searching for for a very long time. I don’t believe it has anything to do with the jersey-to-stretch ratio, but they’re flattering in a way that no other pair I’ve worn previously has ever been.
The style, which sits high on the waist and combines well with a sports bra, eliminates the need for my droopy old exercise T-shirt.

The same Outdoor Voices leggings have served me well for years, and I’ve worn them for a variety of activities like yoga, hiking, jogging, and even performing bicep curls in my bedroom without incident.

I can’t get enough of the leggings from Beyond Yoga. This pair of yoga pants is the most comfortable I’ve ever worn, and they provide just the right amount of slimming compression.

It’s easy to fall in love with this high-rise pair of leggings from Tory Sport because it comes with a matching sports bra (and a sweater, too!).

My favorite legging style is a cropped high-rise crop (and denim cut by happenstance). My early-morning runs and yoga sessions benefit from them. Even when I wear them immediately after a workout to the playground with my kid before the workday begins, they don’t make me appear schlubby.

I’m not a big fan of working out, but the ballet-inspired gear from Port De Bras has me thinking about giving it a shot. Its leggings are multifunctional—I can wear them for yoga, jogging, and, yes, ballet—and they don’t make me feel like I’m going to let them down by not going to the gym regularly.

Flared yoga pants have been a recent fixation of mine (perhaps owing to the rebirth of the Y2K craze), and these Norba leggings perfectly bridge the gap between the past and the present. They’re as soft as butter and feature a beautiful high-rise waist, and the flare can easily be transformed into a more streamlined leg thanks to the handy-dandy zipper at the side seam. I would highly suggest it!

I tried on these Splits59 Raquel flared leggings after Corps de Ballet dancer India Bradley of the New York City Ballet suggested them to me, and I’m glad that I did. Despite ordering a size smaller than normal, they managed to stretch and compress in all the correct places without revealing every single crevice of my body as other tights do, which generally necessitate a XXL modesty top in order to be worn with them.

The Strategist’s photo-illustration; the Retailers’ photographs You may have noticed that leggings have been a more frequent component of your wardrobe rotation in recent months. And although there are lots of pairs available that are perfectly fine for lounging around the house, leggings that are designed to be worn while exercising are a completely different story. The needs vary depending on the type of exercise you prefer: Perhaps you’re looking for a pair of yoga pants that are soft and stretchy for Pilates, or some that will keep you dry during a high-intensity exercise, or some that won’t slide down your legs during downward dog in your next Vinyasa flow class.
Photograph courtesy of the retailer Lululemon’s Wunder Under leggings have been a best-seller for years and are widely considered to be the original.
In addition, Erin Brockovich like them, stating that their thickness is “exactly right.” According to Kate Posch, a yoga instructor atSky Ting, the Wunders are her “go-to everyday legging,” and she appreciates the Wunders’ high-waisted design in particular.
As Ashley Rosenberg, a modelFITinstructor, puts it, the style is “the timeless classic” that is “absolutely unstoppable.” As a teacher and programmer at both ICE CrossFit NYC and Oculus CrossFit, Katherine Gundling agrees that they distinguish themselves from the competition amid a sea of imitators.
Photograph courtesy of the retailer The Invigorate legging from Lululemon is another Lululemon classic that our experts recommend.
In order to keep cool when doing aerobics, Chu explains, “I like clothes that drain away perspiration and have pockets in the back for stashing my credit card or pockets on the side for carrying my mobile phone.” When I’m actually on the move, this allows me to have everything I need at my disposal.” Designed with Everlux fabric, which is sweat wicking, breathable, and quick drying, these leggings include pockets on the side so you’ll never be without your things when working out.
- These high-waisted pants also include a drawstring in the waistband, which keeps them from falling down and eliminates the need to continually pull them up.
- ForEdiva Zanker, the originator of the tough boxing workoutGRIT BXNG, this is a must-have.
- She claims that you can’t go wrong with these options.
- In contrast, they contain an additional five pockets in the waistband, are somewhat larger in length, and are constructed of a lighter-weight fabric than the previous model.
- “They have the highest waist of any leggings I’ve ever owned,” Miller says of the pair.
- In addition to being exceedingly fashionable, they are also really comfortable to wear.

- The mesh panels and cropped length of these leggings are popular with both teachers since they help to keep things cool during strenuous sessions.
- They’re composed of a soft, elastic material and are available in a range of colors, all of which include a flattering high waist.
- Photograph courtesy of the retailer The seamless legging design is popular right now, and NASM-certified personal trainerDenajha Phillips suggests Alphalete for that appearance.
- She need a waistline that is sturdy and flexible and will not roll down.
- Phillips further stated that even the lighter hues don’t show signs of sweating on the skin.
- Despite the fact that they aren’t nearly as sweatproof as the Nike Pros, there are a variety of reasons why you might want to include them in your training attire.
- They’re also excellent for yoga since they stretch in all directions and drain away perspiration rapidly, which I find to be important.
Luster author Raven Leilaniloves the way they look: “There’s no higher complement than a compliment from another woman,” she adds, “and anytime I wear this, I receive the greatest comments from other women.” Personal trainer Tally Ryer suggests them for studio lessons.
Among the many things Saya Tomioka, a yoga instructor at Fithouse, loves are her Lululemon Align pants, which she wears for everything from eating to sleeping to breathing.
Falzarano refers to them as a “second layer of skin.” Photograph courtesy of the retailer In order to practice yoga or Pilates, which both entail lying down on one’s back, Chu is particular about having no zipped pockets on the back of one’s clothing.
Seamless leggings from Free People are her go-to remedy for this problem.
They are available in a variety of hues, ranging from mint green to plain black.
The Ripple leggings, which are made of 95 percent cotton and 5 percent elastane, are Bryn Chrisman’s personal favorite, according to the creator and owner of Yogamaya.
‘They provide for adequate ventilation and do not impede my movements.’ Chrisman is particularly attracted to the pants because of their length.
Ripple’s leggings and yoga trousers are made in the United States.
Her favorite pieces are the leggings, shorts, and jumpsuit, which she has in all of the colors.
Leggings made of 97 percent cotton and 3 percent Lycra are available.
“They’re fun, and they’re playful, and I just love the way I can live in them,” she says.
Her favorite pair of high-rise jeans are “squishy,” but she doesn’t like anything that squeezes her stomach since she is a “big belly breather.” ‘They keep me contained, yet they don’t suffocate me,’ says the protagonist.
“There is no evidence of perspiration on the cloth.” According to Posch, the company offers a wide range of “very colorful hues” that are a welcome change from her regular black yoga attire.

Photograph courtesy of the retailer Jen Romanelli, co-founder of Trooper Fitness, hasn’t bought a pair of pants in ten years and prefers to dress in leggings, such as these from Gap, for her workouts.
These have the right high-rise, but it was the fact that they wear and wash so nicely that she decided to go with the Gap leggings.
” Romanelli states that the leggings do not pill in the inner thighs and that they do not require any special washing procedures to keep them in excellent condition.
Some of her favorite prints are from Bombsheller, which provides enlarged sizes and prints from independent artists in many mediums.
Photograph courtesy of the retailer Crystal Martin is a senior editor who specializes in strategy.
In her letter, she describes how the Physiclos leggings “had transformed my run day into an ab day,” and how the leggings “had given me a higher value out of my typical workout regimen.” Photograph courtesy of the retailer “When I’m going to be surfing or swimming for more than two hours, I wear an SPF legging — or actually a UPF legging, which is SPF for clothes —,” says Molly Young, a contributor to The Strategist.
Olas is her favorite brand because its leggings are composed of “a smooth Italian-made recycled textile manufactured from old plastic water bottles,” which she describes as “a recycled textile made from old plastic water bottles.” She also enjoys the fact that the packaging is environmentally friendly.

The Best Yoga Pants for Women, According to Hyperenthusiastic Amazon Reviewers
Bauer-Griffin and GC Images BG026 and BG027 Yoga pants are almost certainly a part of your everyday wardrobe rotation, whether you’re working out or working from home. Thousands of Amazon reviews have been scoured in order to help you find the greatest pair of jeans for your needs — whether you like high-waisted or fold-over jeans, capris or boot cut — and we’ve selected the best of the best to help you find the appropriate pair for you. In addition, if you’re searching for more gear, check out our roundups of the finest sports bras, leggings, and plus-size exercise apparel.
- They are flattering on the booty, and I really prefer them over my Lululemon Aligns in terms of comfort.
- “The fit is wonderful for my petite, difficult-to-shop-for figure!” they exclaim in their review.
- In order to use these pants for jogging on an indoor track, I needed a material that was both cool and lightweight.
- Despite the fact that they have been in their possession for 2.5 years, one owner claims that they still seem brand new.
- This product is of exceptional quality.
- This is simply incredible.” According to the vast majority of favorable reviewers on this site, Baleaf High Waist yoga pants do not push, squeeze, pinch, or leave indents on your stomach, and they stay in place once you put them on.
- According to another delighted customer who wears them to work and for yoga classes, “I appreciate that they don’t slide down, that they flatten out my waist without leaving indents in my tummy, and that they don’t put too much strain on my hips like other high-waisted pairs do,” she said.
- In order to cover what I want covered without pinching the crap out of my stomach, the waistband is raised to a comfortable level.
- They manage to keep everything in while yet remaining breathable and really comfy!
One describes them as having “huge, deep pockets.” Because “pockets are not just for guys,” she argues, women should “DEMAND more and better pockets.” Another consumer expresses her delight in these leggings, saying they “are everything.” She enjoys the pockets since they are large enough to hold her utility knife and keys, but she also appreciates the high waist, something she shares with over 200 other five-star reviewers.
Because she has a high waist, she can bend, squat and kneel without feeling restricted or like the material is pulling in certain places while not in others.
Many people are particularly taken with the mesh panel on the calves; one person says it “is really flattering” and “slimming,” while another says “the mesh panels offers greater cooling effect.” However, the mesh is not the only attraction: “The bottom of the legs are cut at a little angle (which isn’t visible in the photograph), but it contributes to the design, along with some diagonal seaming, which is the inverse of the mesh insert,” as one reviewer points out.
There’s also mesh trim on the pocket, which is a wonderful finishing touch.” Another selling feature is the way the garment fits.
According to one user, “They keep my jiggles under control through yoga, barre, and boxing sessions (I told you.
Finally, the material is solid, so there are no uncomfortable’see-through’ patches on the bum.” These IUGA yoga pants are comparable to the other IUGA yoga pants on our list, with the exception that they are fleece-lined, which reviewers found to be particularly useful during the colder months.
- In addition, another reviewer comments on how well they “fit wonderfully and the waist stays in place.” “They keep me warm on winter walks and when walking my dog,” they continue.
- “These check off every box,” they wrote in their review.
- Even though they have a little compression, they are still comfortable enough to wear about the home.
- I raced a 10K on the same day I got them and another 5K today, and I’m in love with them so much that I had to write a review on them.” The boot cut on these Spalding yoga pants is very popular with fans.
According to one happy reviewer, these trousers “hug curves without clinging to them in all the wrong places.” Furthermore, more than a hundred reviewers have described these trousers as “flattering.” “This style is much more forgiving, and it even highlights your glutes,” says one reviewer who owns six pairs.
- “These yoga pants literally saved my life!” they wrote.
- Because they were comfortable and flattering, they took the uncertainty out of deciding what to wear every day, and because I could mix and match them with a different color top every time, I had a new look every time.” “Perfect pair of pants.
- Their description is as follows: “The pattern is really flattering to the waist and lower tummy.
- The fact that there was no sliding or movement made it really comfortable, and I frequently forgot I was wearing it.” And a third reviewer (who refers to these trousers as “magic pants”) raves about how they “fit PERFECTLY” and how they feature “extensive pockets,” once again.
Several customers have praised the capris as “a nice flared-out capri with no frills or strange stuff to get in the way.” Another customer notes that the fabric is “a lighter mid-weight fabric with a cottony feel and a little elasticity.” These are excellent for yoga because the buttocks are not see-through.” Some customers describe them as “genuine mid-calf capri length, spacious at the bottom while remaining thin in the thigh and waist.” Another says, “These are a real mid-calf capri length, are roomy at the bottom but yet flatteringly small in the thigh and waist.” Just though they are loose in certain places doesn’t imply they lack shape.
- “Though they fit a bit more snug than other trousers of the same size, they are stretchy and not constraining,” writes another, who adds that “they don’t become shapeless and droopy after being worn for several hours,” she says.
- According to one of our customers, “Finally, I’ve discovered a workout capri that’s great.” The pockets are the most appealing aspect to her.
- When they are empty, they do not appear to be pockets, giving the garment a really smooth appearance,” she explains.
- It’s hard to think that she ever wore yoga pants with no pockets to the office.
- She found them to be far more handy than she had anticipated, and she ended up purchasing many more in different colors.
- “They are soft, fit well, are a great price, and are obviously well made,” says another who likes that they keep her asthma inhaler secure during class.
- The fact that these Champion capris have an elastic waist and an adjustable drawstring “makes it easy to adjust” and “helps keep them in place” while working out is a significant accomplishment.
“I purchased them with the hopes of being able to wear them for part of my pregnancy, and they ended up working great throughout my whole pregnancy,” says one reviewer.
For one thing, as a tall plus-size woman, it’s difficult to locate exercise trousers at all, says one reviewer.
Others have commented that, in contrast to other yoga pants, these appear to hold up well after a lot of wear and washing.
Reviewers remarked on how beautifully these leggings held their shape while yet looked fashionable time and time again.
“They’re also quite attractive!” The following is from another reviewer who uses them to lift weights: “My legs and buttocks are really enormous — I’m also only five feet one inches tall.
Because I have enormous thighs, finding something that fits my thighs is difficult enough as it is.
“They are quite comfortable.” These yoga pants have received five-star reviews from over 4,000 customers, and the elastic waistband has been described as “soft,” “comfortable,” and even “a lifesaver” by one customer who suffers from fibromyalgia skin sensitivity.
One reviewer, who complained that most yoga pants had a restricting waistline, discovered these and was happy to discover that they were “the most comfortable bottoms I’ve felt while pregnant.” The fabric is “impressively soft,” writes another reviewer, who left their remarks while they were “seven months pregnant and pretty much uncomfortable in everything at this point.” They also note that “simply the general comfort is far better than the $200 sweatpants you’ll find out there.” According to one reviewer, the drawstring waist of these yoga pants “allows them to be worn by people of all shapes and sizes,” and others concur with him.
Several curvy reviewers rave about the pants, including one who writes, “This is the first pair of gym pants I’ve found in years that are good for my thick thighs and relatively small, high waist.” Another writes, “Being a somewhat vertically challenged person (5′ 1-1/2″) and not heavy (103 pounds), I find these pants to be nearly perfect.” The drawstring waist “allows me to have a snug fit with no trousers sagging whether I’m extending or bending,” according to one reviewer who is on the autism spectrum.
- The fit is only one of the reasons why more than 200 reviewers have described these trousers as comfortable; the material is also a contributing factor.
- The material isn’t too thin, but it isn’t too heavyweight, which is perfect for outdoor fall exercises up north and winter workouts at the gym, as one user notes.
- The fact that they’re not excessively baggy is appreciated by some.
- In the words of another, “I would venture to say that they even appear slimming, which is not often what you find in a sweat pant.” These also have something else that you don’t normally see in sweatpants: pockets.
- “These are a fantastic alternative to leggings,” writes one buyer who expresses her dissatisfaction with “boot-cut yoga pants” and “wanted something that was looser than leggings and thicker than leggings,” among other things.
- “I’ll be honest with you: I daydream about going home and putting these on!” Customer comments, “I’m looking forward to it more than anything,” and then comes back to update her review months later, mentioning that she ended up purchasing two more pairs after all.
- Another believes they are simply too multifunctional not to get them.
- Furthermore, they are fashionable, according to her.

” “I can’t convey how much I like these leggings,” says one of the reviews.

According to the reviewers, “the fit is wonderful for my petite, difficult-to-shop-for physique!” There can be a challenge finding leggings with little to no slack in the legs, but these are perfect; there is no bunching of fabric at my ankles!” In addition to receiving five stars from over 3,000 customers, several of them noted that the yoga pants were light enough to wear while working out.

- In addition, they’ll enhance the appearance of your booty!

- ” And, what’s more, they’re truly long enough to accommodate my long legs.” Furthermore, when a third reviewer from New England discovered their pair, they were “overjoyed.” According to them, “These check every box.” It’s like eating a piece of creamy soft butter.
- One of the most pleasing aspects is that they remain still as I run.
“Most of the time, I have to select between what feels comfortable, what fits well, and what looks nice.” “These trousers are all three,” writes one delighted customer, who adds that they “hug curves without clinging to them in all the wrong places.” In addition, more than a hundred reviewers have described these trousers as “flattering.” “This shape is much more forgiving, and it even showcases your glutes,” says one reviewer who owns six pairs.
- “This style is very flattering to those of us who do not enjoy the way straight leg trousers hug our hips and thighs,” says another.
- “These yoga pants SAVED MY LIFE!” they exclaim on Facebook.

- The elastic waistband and adjustable drawstring on these Champion capris “make it easy to adjust” and “helps keep them in place” while you’re working out, which is a huge accomplishment in and of itself.
- And a large number of pregnant reviewers appreciate that they will be able to grow with them and will still fit nicely postpartum as well.
I can still wear them comfortably now (almost two months after birth and nearly back to my previous weight), simply by adjusting the drawstring.” Despite the fact that these yoga pants have hundreds of five-star reviews from women of all sizes, they have received a disproportionate number of good reviews from taller women or those seeking trousers with additional space.

This product received a positive review from a customer who considered most yoga pants to have a restricting waistline and was happy to find these to be “the most comfortable bottoms I’ve felt while pregnant.” According to another reviewer, who wrote their comments while she was “seven months pregnant and pretty much uncomfortable in everything at this point,” she says she is “impressed by how soft the fabric is,” and that “just the overall comfort is significantly better than the $200 sweatpants you’ll find out there.” According to one reviewer, the drawstring waist of these yoga pants “allows them to be worn by women of all shapes and sizes.” Others agree.
Several curvy reviewers rave about the pants, including one who writes, “This is the first pair of gym pants I’ve found in years that are comfortable for my thick thighs and relatively small, high waist.” Another writes, “Being a somewhat vertically challenged person (5′ 1-1/2″) and not heavy (103 pounds), I find these pants to be nearly perfect.” The drawstring waist “allows me to have a secure fit with no trousers sagging whether I’m extending or bending,” according to one reviewer, regardless of where you lie on the spectrum.
Over 200 customers have described these trousers as comfortable, and the fit is just one of the reasons for this.
According to one reviewer, “These fit well and are quite durable, made entirely of cotton with a little spandex for flexibility,” which results in a product that is both “lightweight and comfortable.” Several customers have described these fleece trousers as “comfy, great fitting yoga pants.” Many others would add the word “cozy” to that description because they are so warm.

- In the words of another, “I would venture to say that they even appear slender, which is not often what you find in a sweat pant.” The addition of pockets to these sweatpants distinguishes them from the norm.

What to Look For
Yoga trousers and leggings are available in a variety of colors, patterns, and lengths. Choosing the correct one for you is a question of personal choice, and it may be impacted by the occasion and environment in which you will be wearing it. Most essential, your new trousers should be comfortable and well-fitting; if they restrict your flexibility and comfort at home, they will not feel any better in a yoga class, regardless of whether it is a vigorous exercise or a gentle flow. In general, I advise choosing a high-rise, next-to-skin type with a flat waistband that measures three to five inches in width for the most part.
- The broad waistband is less prone to pinch or roll than a narrow waistband.
- The most often encountered lengths are full-length, 7/8-length, and capri.
- These are a fantastic middle-of-the-road option, providing ample of coverage while being less prone to roll up at the knee or bunch at the ankle.
- The Scientific Evidence for the Health Benefits of Yoga for Runners
Even while many companies have their own proprietary labels for their own fabric compositions, most yoga pants are made of nylon or polyester blended with spandex or Lycra (both of which are types of elastane) to provide extra durability and flexibility. Yoga-specific leggings are made of fabrics that are comparable to those used in general athletic tights, but they feature a brushed texture for a gentler hand feel. Keep in mind that this type of structure is likely to pill over the course of time.
The majority of the pants listed below are designed specifically for yoga, but I’ve also included some basic athletic tights that I’ve found to be useful for yoga sessions, as well as for runs, hikes, and other outdoor activities as well. Yoga pants offer moisture-wicking characteristics and mild compression, so running tights may be just as comfortable while you’re in Warrior II as they are when you’re not.
How We Evaluated
Yoga pants are a staple in my everyday clothing, regardless of the season. In addition to the climbing gym, I wear them all day when working from my sofa, in the yoga studio, and when going for runs and hikes in the outdoors. Since nearly ten years, I’ve been including yoga into my daily routine, which has been more consistent in the last four years. All of the yoga leggings and pants evaluated here are durable enough to withstand high-intensity power yoga courses while yet being comfortable enough to wear during a yin yoga session.
After backpacking for 220 miles with the Janji Groundwork Tights, I decided to wear them to a yoga class the following week as a reward.
Models with a high-rise waist and a broad, flat waistband were preferred since they should be more resistant to drooping and rolling.
Any yoga pants that I haven’t personally tried out come highly recommended by customers and Amazon consumers, as well as teachers at a range of yoga studios and studios in general. A wide range of sizes is available. Specs for the Athleta Salutation Stash Pocket TightKey

- Material: Pockets: 0
- Number of Pockets
This is a slightly cropped version of Alo’s popular full-length Airbrush Legging, which is also available in black. What is the benefit of the 7/8-inch sleeve length? There is less chance of ankle bunching, which is especially important for shorter people. The brushed finish on the combination of technical fibers gives it a smooth, cotton-like feel while yet maintaining its functionality. A smoother profile is created by using flat-lock seams just at the waist, crotch, and ankle rather than on the pant sides.
This also helps to avoid twisting and chafing. Despite having a high waistband, these tights have a propensity to roll down and are significantly more difficult to hold in place than the other tights on this listing.
