Refining a downward dog or trying a new balance pose at the yoga studio is challenging enough on its own, but it’s even harder when you’re fiddling with sagging, too tight or uncomfortable yoga clothes. That’s why it’s important to purchase clothes that are breathable, flexible and comfortable.
Our yoga clothing purchases will depend largely on personal preference, as well as the style of yoga you plan to practice. But at a high level, a typical yoga wardrobe includes:
1.Yoga leggings/pants: Yoga clothing brands offer multiple styles of yoga pants with varying lengths and fits. As with all yoga clothing, look for yoga pants or leggings that offer a good combination of breathability, flexibility and comfort. Nylon-polyester-spandex blend pants are a good bet, as they move with you through postures but also wick moisture.
If you’re concerned about coverage when bending and stretching, high-waisted leggings or pants might be a good choice; they are typically less likely to slip during a fast practice or ride down too far during inverted poses like downward dog.
Loose-fitted pants can be a nice option for slower yoga classes like restorative or yin; they are typically not recommended for power vinyasa classes, as they can impede mobility.
2.Yoga shorts: Men’s yoga shorts are usually with built-in liners for comfort during a bendy, stretchy practice. Alternatively, you can find longer yoga shorts that reach to the knee, which can aid in coverage during inversions. Spandex yoga shorts, typically geared toward women, are a tricky business; they tend to ride up during practice and don’t provide much coverage during complicated poses. In order to avoid too thin and see-through, hence fake two-piece shorts is born for women.
3.Yoga tops: No matter the style, most yogis prefer to wear tight-fitting T-shirts or tank tops that fit snugly around the hips and waist. This narrow fit keeps the clothes from falling over your head during forward bending postures. Tops made with breathable, moisture-wicking materials and soft seams surely are also a good idea for sweaty classes.
Give your yoga top a test----- Bending your body forward to touch your toes in the dressing room:
Does the shirt gap at the chest or fall over your head? If so, change one tighter fit immediately.
4.Yoga sweaters/jackets: If you plan to run errands after class, you might want a warm, comfortable yoga cover-up like a jacket, quarter-zip or sweatshirt. This can be especially helpful during the winter, after leaving a sweaty class: Extra layers can prevent the immediate chill you’ll likely experience after leaving the warm room.
5.Sports bras or yoga bras: Your choice of sports bra will depend on your bra size and coverage needs. In general, high intensity classes like power vinyasa require more support, as you’re likely to be twisting and inverting (going upside down).
Many yoga clothes are made with polyester-nylon-spandex blends, because these fabrics offer the right balance of comfort, breathability and flexibility.
Each fabric has its washing methods , you should know them to make you can wear them longer.
How to Take Care of Your Yoga Clothing
Most yoga apparel will come with washing instructions, but in general it’s a good practice to turn your gear inside out and wash it in cold water, then tumble dry on low heat for a short cycle. If you have time, hang your gear to dry instead of running it through a dryer; a short cycle or hang dry prolongs the life of your garments. If you have bright-colored clothing, wash it separately the first few times just in case the colors bleed. Also, wash your yoga gear separately from cotton materials like towels, as the cotton fibers tend to cling to yoga clothing.
