I imagine there must have been a day when yoga pants were reserved for yoga.
So many girls on campus wear yoga pants/leggings/capris now that you would think it was some kind of uniform. Aren’t we all about individuality here? Why is everyone dropping their hard-earned dough on Victoria’s Secret or Lululemon leggings so they can look like everyone else?
Beyond that, you have to be concerned about VPL (visible panty line), so people can’t see your underwear, and sheerness of fabric, so people don’t see your actual a–.
Speaking of, a draw to Spandex bottoms is that they supposedly make your backside look good. And the truth is, everyone’s a– would look 10 times better with pockets on it.
One could say, “I’m not concerned how they look but they are so comfyyy.” To that I say, since the invention of the stretch jean, there are pants that are just as comfortable. Think of your ancestors who lived in a time where a jean-Spandex blend didn’t exist!
The problem with all the give that yoga pants provide is that I can eat an obscene amount of food without feeling the pressure of my pants on my stomach, leaving me feeling very regretful about three pieces of pizza later.
Wearing a pajama-like bottom is conducive to sleep. If you’re at all prone to falling asleep in class, yoga pants are downright dangerous.
Another excuse for wearing yoga pants is self-proclaimed laziness. In reality, it takes the same amount of energy to put on jeans and a top and you look infinitely better and you feel better too, because nobody feels pretty in yoga pants. If you look good, then you feel good, and if you feel good, you perform well, and if you perform well, you succeed.
Don’t let yoga pants get in the way of your success.
