The 7 Best Yoga Pants In 2018
As we mentioned earlier, the pants shared here all get great reviews from many customers. The biggest decisions for you to make is solid or patterned and snug or loose fitting. Take a look at 7 of the top rated yoga pants of 2018.
1. Power Flex Yoga Pants by Oalka – Top Rated Yoga Pants
The Oalka Power Flex have a high waistband with tummy-control. They come in 19 different colors including 14 solid colors, made with 86% nylon and 14% spandex, and 5 space dyed colors that look like they have small stripes and are made with 87% polyester/13% spandex.
Note: the space dyed colors might be slightly see-through compared to the solid colors according to similar product reviews.
Oalka wants you to love their pants, and if you don’t, you can return them for a full refund. From the sounds of it though, no matter your shape or length, there’s a high chance these thick, compression tights will be a good choice. And at their price-point, they’re a no-brainer to try.
These pants from Queenie Ke have the same makeup as the Oalka’s listed above, but they have a few more color/style options to choose from. The 26 choices include 9 space dyed options, 12 solid colors – reviewed to be a little softer than the space dyed colors, and a few patterned, color block, and laser cut options.
Several reviews note that these pants do not pass the squat test, meaning when you stretch the material over your booty while squatting or forward folding, it’s a bit too transparent. Some users found the pants provided full coverage though – it’s likely a difference between the solid colors and the space dyed fabric that the company shares is thinner and possibly more transparent.
As with the Oalka’s, Queenie Ke wants you to love your pants. If you don’t, return them within 30 days for a full refund.
If you’re in the market for something flowy, these hippie harem pants are for you! Bangkokpants makes them in 11 boho inspired patterns. These flowy, lightweight pants made from handmade rayon. They come in one size said to fit US sizes 0 to 12.
If you’re tall with a long inseam, these might not be your best option. Based on company info listed, the inseam of the pants is 27″, which is supported by a user review who said she has a 32″ inseam and they’re too short.
From the sounds of it, however, if you’re an average height and between a size 12 or smaller, these might be the pants you decide to live in on and off your yoga mat.
So, if you’re looking for pants that won’t leave you feeling exposed in your forward folds, these could be a good option. They, like the Oalka’s and Queenie Ke’s, are made of 87% nylon and 13% spandex (as long as you’re choosing one of the 7 solid colors). Their 3 space dyed colors are made from 90% polyester/10% spandex,and they have one charcoal pair that includes 50% cotton/36% poly/14% spandex.
Based on user reviews, these pants pass the squat test with flying colors – meaning, even when people were squatting and folding and trying to see their undies through the fabric, they couldn’t. One user even said it was difficult to see the lines of her undies because the fabric is so thick. For that reason, so people also feel these leggings are just too warm for hot yoga studios and/or really intense classes and workouts.
Yogipace Bootcut Pants come in five different inseam lengths ranging from 29″ to 37″. Compared to most of the others on our list, these pants cost a little more, but not by much.
They, like most the others, are made from moisture-wicking, non-see-through blend of 87% nylon/13% spandex.
If you love expressing yourself with the clothes you wear or need a bit of pizazz to get you excited about getting dressed and going to yoga, these digital print pants are just what you’re looking for. They come in 42 different prints so you have lots of colors and patterns to pick from. And they are made with advanced 3D print technology designed to not fade with wear.
Their sizing is different from most of the others on our list with “one size” being made to fit size 0-12 and “plus size” intended to fit sizes 12-24. They are made from 88% polyester/%12 spandex.
After reading reviews, it seems that finding a good fit might be one of the biggest challenges with these since there are only two sizes. If they fit you though, they can be quite flattering and stay up pretty well throughout a class. Some users mentioned they can be a bit see through, but it wasn’t a common complaint.
These pants are made from 88% polyester/12% spandex and according to Yogalicious, they’re “engineered to feel like your second-skin layer. You’ll forget you’re wearing these leggings. Next-to-nothing sensation as you move.” They offer sizes XS to XL and are 28″ long.
They offer 12 different colors and they even have special bundles of two or three pair that allow you to save money.
Users say that the fabric is super soft – one even described it as buttery smooth. There seems to be a mix of feedback as to how well these fit though. It seems many people feel the waistband digs in too much, camel toe can be a real issue, and that they slide around while practicing yoga. But, not everyone felt this way, so they might still be a good option for you – especially if you’re looking for pants that are great for lounging in.
