Anyone who knows me knows I love my yoga pants. They’re comfy, they’re cozy, they go with just about everything. If someone took away my yoga pants, I think I would cry. Seriously.
But, not everyone shares my adoration. There’s been a great debate lately over whether yoga pants showcase too much of a woman’s body. Many argue they shouldn’t be worn outside the yoga circle. One lawmaker even wants them banned entirely!
Whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em, yoga pants are popular and I think it would be safe to say, they’re here to stay.
Here’s a look at some ones that are tops for a little Namaste and beyond:
- Power Flex Pants from 90 Degree by Reflex
If you’re looking for a top seller, this is one of them. Amazon ranks the Power Flex Pants from 90 Degree by Reflex as its best-selling yoga pant. They’re said to be perfect for yoga, exercise, or everyday activities. These pants will cost you about $30 depending on the style.
2. Athleta Revelation Pant
I’ll tell you up front; these pants don’t come cheap, retailing at over $70 a pair. But, I found them cheaper on sites like eBay, so shop around. With that said, they’re said to be top of the line. The Athleta Revelation Pant offers a smooth look said to flatter everyone.
3. Lululemon Skinny Groove Pant
These pants are praised for their support and comfort. The Lululemon pants are also sporty and stretchy. Like their competitors, these pants are pricey too at more than $90 a pair.
4. Lucy Perfect Core Pant
They’re not only pants, but they have a body-hugging fit that tightens your core. It’s like your pants are doing some of the workout for you! The Lucy Perfect Core Pant comes in a couple of colors. These pants can also be classified in the more expensive category.
5. Forever 21 Fit & Flare Yoga Pant
If you don’t want to shell out $100 for one pair of yoga pants, you can get about five pairs for the same price at Forever 21. Its Fit & Flare Yoga Pant gets rave reviews from users. They also come in a wide variety of colors and prints. The best part…they retail for about $20 a pair. Talk about relaxing your wallet!
6. Gap Yoga Pants
This is a personal favorite. I swear by the Gap Yoga Pants. Not only are they super comfortable, but they are affordable at around $20 a pair. They can be even more affordable if you buy them at a Gap Factory Store. The outlets are a great place to find a steal on these yoga pants.
7. Old Navy Fold-Over Yoga Pants
In the Gap family, it’s no surprise these pants are tops. The Old Navy Fold-Over Yoga Pants have super comfy fabric making them a great pick for in the gym or out of the gym. Another plus…they’re affordable at $18-$25 a pair. They also come in a few different colors and styles.
8. Victoria’s Secret Marled Ultimate Yoga Legging
If you don’t want to go expensive, but not completely thrifty, these are middle of the road in price. These pants from Victoria’s Secret are in the $50 range. They come in so many colors you’re bound to find something you like.
9. The Om Collection
These were made by fashion designer and yogi Katie Armstrong. These are said to be comfy and light; ideal for any workout. Talk about a great print…I love the snake sunset design. These pants retail in the $70-$80 range.
10. Go Go Gal Active Yoga Pants
I think these pants were the least expensive I could find without sacrificing a good review. At about $10 a pair, the Go Go Gal Active Yoga Pants have a 4-way stretch and contrasting band for extra comfort.
When it comes to yoga pants, comfort is number one whether you’re wearing them inside the gym or out. Once you find one you like, it may not be a bad idea to pick up a few pairs!
