So if you're going to do yoga, it makes sense to just get a pair of yoga pants! The first time I took a yoga class, I decided to just wear pants that I already had in case I didn't like it. My baggy sweatpants were flopping around everywhere as I was trying to do those yoga poses! I went out and bought a pair of yoga pants before I took another class, and I think it makes a huge difference.
It's a lot easier to do yoga when you aren't worried about what your pants are doing! JessicaLynn Post 10 indemnifyme - I don't see anything wrong with wanting to look nice for any occasion. Some people are just more concerned with their appearances than others, and I think that's fine.
I do agree about the expensive designers yoga sets being too expensive. A friend of mine is obsessed with those lululemon yoga pants, but I would never buy them because of the high price! I don't even do yoga, and I have a few pairs I wear for running errands and lounging around the house or whatever.
It seems like companies charge a premium for these designer yoga sets. It just seems a little ridiculous if you're actually going to wear them to yoga. Who needs to look good when they're exercising? I really don't like wearing shorts any more but love to wear yoga pants.
The capri length is perfect for me. I have seen yoga pants on all ages of people, from elderly women to young girls. I think they are something that is going to stay around for a long time. SarahSon Post 7 Mykol -- I agree with you when it comes to how much nicer a pair of yoga pants look than a pair of baggy sweats or shorts.
After I had my daughter I couldn't fit into my regular clothes but didn't want to go around looking like a slob. Wearing yoga pants was the perfect solution. They were comfortable enough to wear when I got home from the hospital and yet I still felt like I was dressed OK. I think the clothes you wear can make a big difference in how you feel.
If I wear an old pair of sweat pants I feel fat and lazy. If I put on a pair of form fitting yoga pants I feel completely different. I am motivated to stay fit yet feel like I am presentable at the same time. Mykol Post 6 I don't practice yoga, but I love my yoga pants! They are so comfortable and yet don't look baggy like a pair of sweat pants. One of the first things I do when I get home from work is change my clothes and put on my comfortable yoga pants.
I can wear these around home or if I am going shopping or running errands. I used to think a pair of blue jeans were the most comfortable pants to wear, but once I started wearing yoga pants I don't wear jeans nearly as often.
I don't like them if they sit too low on my waist so buy those that sit higher up. I have a short waist though, so this is easier for me to find yoga pants that fit me this way. I would do a search online and you should be able to find something that will suit you just fine.
There are a ton of varieties and styles to choose from. It's really good to have something that is fitting, but not too tight when doing Yoga because you want that flexibility and to be able to move and pose easily without worrying about what you're wearing the whole time.
I love the fold over pants, but sometimes you have to adjust them more than usual. I wear my pants for general purposes and sometimes even sleep in them they are that comfortable. Do the foldover yoga pants have to constantly be adjusted through your poses? Are there any things you would suggest and do you use those pants for more than just Yoga? Sorry so many questions, but can you tell I'm about to get into Yoga?
You can often find ones that have a fold over waist as well. I actually have organic yoga pants that can from a maternity store which I purchased when I was pregnant and still use them today they were from an expensive store! I've only ever found ones that sit very low on my long waisted frame.

Many high-end fashion houses and mass-market trend-chasers have capitalized on the growth of the modern sportswear market, leading an emphasis on technical fabrics and garments that facilitate wearing them as everyday dress. Market research analysts have sought to explain the trend by referencing the extension of work hours in major cities across North America, leading to a "day-to-night" than a "gym-to-work"—while other explanations cite the North American passion for fitness and healthy living.
In the United States, reaction to the wider adoption of yoga pants proved somewhat controversial for schools. There are others who agree with banning yoga pants in public. Most often the reasoning for disagreeing with wearing yoga pants publicly is that they promote a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Amanda Hallay, professor of fashion and cultural history at New York City's LIM College , was interviewed for her opinion on yoga pants being a replacement for jeans. She said, "Yoga pants are a step above pajamas and we don't wear pajamas out to lunch, and we certainly don't wear them to work. Pajamas are for sleeping in, and ergo, not appropriate to wear in any other setting. The same can be said for yoga pants.
Yoga pants are to be worn while doing yoga. According to Hallay, to promote a more business-like or mature persona, a person should dress as such. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
