Yoga Pants Or Yoga Leggings: Which Is Best For you?
Yoga clothing should free you up not just physically but mentally too. There are enough distractions in life without having to worry about your clothes.
We love yoga leggings and we love yoga pants. Which is right for you? Here are the things to consider:
Which offers the best freedom of movement? You want to avoid restrictive clothing so you either need a loose fit or plenty of stretch. The close fit of leggings can feel comforting and while you can expect them to stay put throughout your practice, they shouldn’t feel tight. With yoga pants, the fabric is looser and many practitioners like this sense of freedom – they really do have a barely there feel.
Are they opaque? One of the concerns with leggings is that they can be a little see-through. We created our truly opaque Cambivo leggings for just this reason. Yoga pants avoid this problem altogether as the fabric isn’t tight against your body.
Are leggings or yoga pants better for certain types of yoga? There’s no right or wrong. It’s all personal preference. For restorative classes, yoga pants can feel more relaxing and comforting, especially in supersoft bamboo viscose. For more dynamic classes like Ashtanga or Vinyasa, lightweight leggings from our seamless range give you 360-degree stretch.
Do they work as part of my everyday wardrobe? As loungewear becomes part of our day-to-day look, the joy of yoga pants is that you can move from your mat and on into your day (our yoga pants even have pockets).
