The Best Yoga Pants That Aren’t Lululemon
Yoga Pants for Women
Long gone are the days where the only reason you'd wear yoga pants is to do, you know, yoga.
Yoga pants have worked their way into the athleisure and just straight leisure world by storm, and for good reason—they offer a stylish look for any body type, are one of the most flattering workout clothes options, can be versatile enough to wear both on and off the yoga mat, and most importantly, they’re crazy comfortable.
When shopping for the best yoga pants, consider their purpose in your life. If you plan on sporting them to your next gym sesh or hot yoga class, look for pairs made with performance-ready fabrics that’ll keep you cool during the sweatiest workouts. Or if you prefer something that you can lounge in at home, opt for cotton yoga pants that’ll feel soft and comfortable enough for everyday wear.

So to help you sift through the seemingly endless options of the most flattering workout clothes, we’ve compiled a list of 16 of our favorite pairs below, from a variety of brands and price points.
