Great yoga pants…

Today on Nitty Gritty Romance, we’re talking about yoga pants to lllloooovvvveeee…

Okay, yes, I spend a lot of time on a yoga mat. A lot. Yoga is as good for your mind as it is your body…but that’s a blog post for another time. What you want to know about are these really great yoga pants.

What they are: High Rise Cut Out Chaturanga™ Tights by Athleta.


(Gorgeous picture, right?)

What’s great about them: They work. I ordered these online and immediately fell in love with the feel — like the smoothest satin or softest cotton.

Fit? Comfortable.

Can they hold up to rigorous exercise?  I took them for a test run a couple of times — first to a regular Vinyasa flow — and I’m happy to say they stayed put. No tugging up at the waist every time I hit Tadasana (they’re high rise). No bunching at the ankles. No adjusting the hips.

Can they survive sweat? Yes. They felt lighter the more I perspired.

Second try: The next time I tested them at an arm balance workshop, and I’m happy to report, my arms didn’t slide off my sweaty legs.

One point: I do have to note that on my tights, the cut-outs are located down the side of the leg and not the back. But I’m hoping the only difference there is aesthetic.

So, are they worth the $89.00 price tag? Yes — especially if you’re like me and want to make these your, “going on a date with the hubby” pants, too. 😉

So try them out, and let me know what you think! Hope this helps you pick a really comfortable pair of yoga pants. Namaste!
