Any yoga enthusiast will tell you that you can do yoga pretty much anywhere, at any time in almost anything. But there is something about having a pair of yoga pants that make it better. They are kind of like tights with wide legs except more comfortable and they actually look good whereas tights can be a hit or a miss.
Danskin, one of foremost makers of active and dance wear, have been developing a plus size active wear line for a few years and it is finally coming into its own. They offer cotton shorts, bicycle shorts, leggings, t-shirts, camis, leotards, bras, as well as a few other extras.
My favorite items are their Yoga Pants:
The long leg pants shown hear are 95% cotton, 5% spandex and the crop pants are 55% cotton, 35% polyester, 10% spandex. Both of these pants are good for other activities besides yoga; like walking, treadmill, aerobics, or just lounging around the house. They come in sizes 1x – 4x for $40 – $60 depending on style and sales.
P.S. Don’t wear the yoga crop pant as an every day pant to do errands. That’s just tacky.
