Spring is in full bloom and that means summer is just around the corner! I know many of you ladies are looking to get fit and fabulous for the summer and what better way to get started than to invest in a pair of new yoga pants? For those of you that know me, you know that I live in yoga pants. They’re stretchy, comfortable and they make my butt and legs look better! Also, there’s just something about having cute workout clothes that motivates me to go work out. This week, I’m going to be reviewing a couple of my favorites:
Colors: check out the website, because they have too many to list and some colors are seasonal. The black ones come with waistbands in all sorts of colors, like white, pink, and lagoon.
Lengths: Regular and Tall (free tailoring comes with purchase)
The Lululemon Groove Pant is definitely my favorite yoga pants. Lululemon pants are a favorite of celebrities everywhere (and also one of Lululemon’s best selling pants) They are made with luon (Lululemon’s signature fabric), with a smooth and flat waistband that comes in an assortment of colors (my current favorite is lagoon). The groove pant comes with a waistband pocket for your gym card, ID, or key, perfect for the gym or a jog outside. Best of all, these pants are reversible, so it’s like you’re getting two pairs of pants for the price of one! And Lululemon pants are pricey. According to recent reviews, Lululemon made some changes to the materials and fabric they use to construct these pants, and reviewers have noted that these pants tend to pill after several washes, so beware of that. Also, if you’re short like me (I’m 5′2″), you will need to get them hemmed. The ladies at Lululemon will measure you and send your pants off to the tailor (free of charge) and you pick them up 6-8 business days later.
Colors: Black, Dress Blue, Submarine, Ripe Plum, Falcon, Asphalt
Sizes: XXS - Large
Lengths: Petite (28″ inseam), Regular (31″ inseam), Tall (34″ inseam)
I have been eyeing these pants since I discovered them, but apparently the Kickbooty pant is so popular that it’s always sold out in the most popular sizes and colors. *sigh* I will keep stalking the Athleta website until then. Athleta is part of the Gap company, so if you have a Gap or Banana Republic card, you get free shipping with your order! Athleta does not currently have any brick and mortar stores, so all purchases will be delivered to you via mail. The Kickbooty Pants are made with Pilayo, a fabric that is “ultimately stretchy, breathable and soft,” according to their website and is perfect for yoga and dance. Customers have gushed about how great these pants will make your butt look, so even if you’re not in your tip top shape, these pants will help you hide it! Most customers find that these pants are true to size, but a few commented that they were a tad tight and short, so check out the sizing chart carefully and read the reviews before you buy.
There are several other companies I want to scope out, I’ll keep you Latest Beauty readers updated.
