The Best Yoga Pants Ever
For years I have been searching for some super comfortable, versatile work out/yoga pants that can also double as a decent pair of black casual pants. You know, the pants I’m talking about. And believe me when I say that I have looked high and low for these pants – Lucy, Lululemon, Gap Body, Nike, Addidas, Athleta, Juicy, you name it, I’ve tried it.
I really wanted to love Lululemon’s pants because I do love their store and own quite a few of their tops and jackets. Unfortunately their pants just don’t fit me well. Too high on the waist, to baggy around the thighs. And I am somehow in the middle of the “short” and “tall” lengths which is odd since I am 5’8″ and the national average height for women is something like 5’4″ I think. Very confusing.
So the other day I took the plunge and printed out one of the email offers I received from Lucy (take note Lucy that 1-2 emails per week instead of daily is sufficient). They had an offer I couldn’t refuse – $15 off their new Hatha Power Pant. They basically guaranteed that it was the pant I’d been looking for all my life. With my husband out of town and a long weekend of single-handedly entertaining a 4 year old ahead of me, I grabbed Maya and battled the 405 traffic to try these pants on. And lo and behold, the time I spent in Saturday afternoon gridlock was actually worth it.
These pants are nothing short of fabulous. They have the best fit – sleek through the leg and a wide opening so they break over your shoes properly. There is nothing worse than when your hems get stuck in your shoes, right? While the pants don’t have regular pockets they do have a small front pocket that will fit an iPod or even half of my iPhone fairly securely. This is very convenient.
I’ve worn these pants constantly since buying them – all the way too and from Toronto last week. They folded super small and didn’t crease! I can even pair them with a nice sweater and get away with wearing them to work. (Okay, who am I kidding? I could roll out of bed and go to work in my pajamas and the entirely male office wouldn’t even bat an eyelash).
The only con to these pants are the $88 price tag. But I do believe that you have to pay for quality and I think these pants are worth it, especially with the $15 discount. Sign up for Lucy’s emails, yes the deluge is a pain but the discounts are worth it.
I have just written numerous paragraphs on a pair of yoga pants – a feat I have never accomplished before – but that should only confirm that these pants are worth it. Get thyself to Lucy and give try them out – I promise you’ll love them too.
