Being a work from home woman my day consists of sitting, or doing things around the house. I remember the day of wearing jeans, every day all day. I was one of those women who just refused to wear yoga pants, or sweat pants. I wore my pj’s for most of the day, but in my brain that was ok. Not sure why, but it felt to me like it was more acceptable to be in my pj’s all day, than to wear yoga pants as I looked at those as more of an exercise only accessory.
Well, I have expanded my thought train and now I love and live for my yoga pants! I have a closet full of fun and funky workout type clothing. I pair my pink yoga pants up with so many cute tops and shoes and even though I was the girl who would never be caught dead leaving my house with yoga pants on, now you will find me doing all sorts of things in them because they are comfy. I now live for comfy!
Yoga pants were designed to be worn for yoga practice. I believe they were made for that as they move with your body. They are generally a body hugging material and fit. Unlike a standard legging, yoga pants fit a bit more snug. While it’s hard to tell now days if someone has leggings on, or yoga pants because they both have become so socially acceptable to wear outside the gym or house that nobody really questions it anymore. I remember a few years ago seeing girls at the grocery store after they left the gym and they had their workout clothing on. I would think.. wow.. that is brave! Haha!! But, maybe they never were at the gym. Maybe, just maybe that is how they dressed because it is uber comfortable.
I am super picky about my leggings and yoga pants. I don’t like a high rise. I feel a high rise isn’t for everyone and even though I don’t have a muffin top to hide, I feel the high wasted leggings or yoga pants accentuate any extra fluff anyone has. But, I know many women who like the high waist leggings and yoga pants and so if they are comfortable in them, that is great!
