As an avid fitness enthusiast, I love to incorporate new workouts which challenge me to new levels of physical and mental movement. My personal favourite rotation of workouts include: pilates, yoga and kickboxing. Exercising regularly at least 3-4x a week, I find myself in constant search of workout wear that reflects my personal style, and made of good quality while keeping up with my workouts in lasting performance and comfort.
I have been known to shamelessly wear workout gear all day, and love transitional pieces that make me feel confident and stylish while running errands or meeting up friends for coffee. In the endless search of finding stylish yoga leggings, here are some tips on how to find the most flattering styles which suit your needs.
When you’re working out or practicing yoga, the body bends in a variety of movements, making it important to wear the right size. It’s distracting to wear bunchy, loose yoga pants that are sliding off or ones that give you muffin top because they’re slightly snug. Buying the right size also prevents transparency issues when the yoga leggings’ fabric is overstretched. Yup, we’ve all been there.
Yes, we all love a funky printed yoga legging, a leg-elongating striped yoga legging, or a flirty floral patterned yoga legging, but the style is just as important as a flattering fit and silhouette which suits our type of workout and body shape. High-waisted tights are great for days that you may be a little bit bloated and opt for more coverage. A mid-to-low waist tight is great to show off your new abs of steel. Consider yoga tights that provide more compression, or ones that offer more stretch, or both. Capri, crop or ankle tights are all lengths to consider in the fit you feel most comfortable and confident in. There are even specially made maternity yoga leggings for the active mom-to-be who want to stay fit throughout their pregnancy!
We’re currently obsessing over our True Love floral patterned yoga leggings. It’s a high waisted fit which wraps perfectly around the ankle with a super comfy, and uber stretchy second-to-skin fabric that feels like you’re wearing next to nothing. It’s also the most gorgeous floral design that’s feminine yet a little wild with the jungle-inspired print. All things we love rolled up into a perfect little legging. It’s our go-to item in the workout closet, like the little black dress of workout wear.
