All The Hot Pants – Yoga Pants Review

PicMonkey CollageI get so many compliments on my pants and so many questions asking where to get them. So I thought I would do a round-up of my favourite yoga pants so that you too can enjoy moving around in party pants all day long. I used to be so jealous of all of the fun new yoga pants out there until I found these companies. It seemed the only pants offered in plus-size were plain, old, boring black. And I wanted my ample ass to be outta this world in a galaxy pants.

*This list is compiled from my personal experience. I didn’t receive any incentive from these companies to post about them. I just wanted to share the love of having super fun pants for your yoga practice.*

Fractal.9

When I found Fractal.9 I was overjoyed to see that they would make pants to your specifications from their Etsy site. Today Fractal.9 has their own website with sizes ranging from XS to 5XL and also have kids leggings in the same prints so if you want go matchy matchy with your child you could. They offer leggings, capris, shorts, shirts and headbands. The fabric feels nice and soft and I love the high waist. Their sweet cheeks shorts are super comfy for summer!

FRACTAL.9

 

From their website: “Fractal 9 is a brand created for every BODY. We welcome you to find the perfect way to express your inner beauty and strength with our unique patterns. Whether you’re a curvy girl, muscular build, or anything in between; we’ve got you covered! It is our belief that cute fitness wear should be offered to all, regardless of size or shape. Our goal is to create a judgement free shopping experience, spreading love and acceptance.”

Why they are Extra Awesome

Christine, Fractal 9’s owner is so AWESOME she encourages you to send your measurements for a custom fit at no extra charge!

Lineage Wear

Lineage Wear has quickly become my go to for all the best pants. I started with their classic Peacock Pants and so many of my students have since bought them too, that we have joked about the Peacock Pants being our team uniform.

Lineage Wear has more than just pants. They have hoodies, jewelry, mugs and more. Their pants sizes range from XS to 4XL and are even more high waisted than Fractal 9, which I love! I also like their long mid-foot length of pant to help keep your feet warm during calmer practices.

From their website: “Lineagewear doesn’t believe in “one size fits all”. People are all shapes and sizes, clothing companies skew their size charts differently, and the BMI chart doesn’t take into account things like height, fitness level, or muscle tone. A hundred years ago, almost every piece of clothing you owned would have been tailor made to your specific measurements. That’s the type of fit we strive for with our leggings. We want our garments to fit true to size every time.

Please, don’t ever feel that there is something weird or wrong with YOUR body just because a garment doesn’t fit. YOU are perfect, YOU are beautiful!”  

Why they are Extra Awesome

Lineage Wear will ship for free anywhere in world on orders over $125. As a Canadian, that’s great news! Lineage Wear has a policy around environmental impact, fair employment, and is doing more and more to improve their business operations. They also raise money for different organizations including the National Eating Disorders Association.

I love these. As someone who has lost friends to suicide and struggled with mental health, I am very supportive of the semicolon as a symbol of hope and support.

Just Curves

Just Curves is all about the ONEder Suit. The ONEder suit gives you the freedom of never wondering if your pants have started to head so far south during your practice that you end up showing a halfmoon rather than practicing halfmoon. As someone who is moving my body in different positions in front of large groups of people almost every day this is very important to me. This is exactly why Yolanda, the creator of the ONEder suit, designed this one piece bodysuit-leggings combo.

From their website: “Just Curves is body-positive activewear for women sizes 10-28. Every piece in the Just Curves collection is designed with your curves in mind. Constructed of high quality fabric and made in the U.S.A, Just Curves is chic, comfortable, and fashion-forward. Clothing is emotional. Whenever you put something on, you feel something about yourself and others feel something about you too. Why not feel sexy and confident while you’re working on your fitness? When you look good, you feel good, which boosts confidence, and helps you reach your goals, which is my mission for the woman wearing Just Curves. Designed with curves in mind, the ONEder Suit is a one-piece, open bust unitard that keeps your PANTS UP and your CONFIDENCE HIGH!  Just Curves is passionate about empowering plus size women through action to live their healthiest and happiest lives now…not 30 pounds from now.”

Why they are Extra Awesome

I love the lace prints. They make me feel extra fancy.

    Just saw this review. Thank YOU! I have spent so much time trying to find yoga attire that truly fits larger sized women that also doesn’t look like it belongs to my granny! I have gone into most of the retail yoga shops looking for larger sizes (REALLY? XL=size 12??). I have made it my mission to educate them that they are missing a large part of the yoga population (plus size) that manufacturers keep ignoring and we are ready to BUY! Thank you Thank you Thank you…I am going shopping online now!
