Finding the best UK yoga leggings is tricky. To be the best, yoga pants must move with the body, support all the right places, and fit to perfection. All whilst creating a flattering look. It might sound a lot, but we’ve got the answer to all the best yoga leggings, no matter if you’re a novice or a yoga expert.
Knowing what to choose
Choosing your leggings for yoga is not a case of picking a pair out a hat and hoping for the best. To get the best yoga pants (UK), you want to look for some key features that will ensure your leggings are cut out for the stretches and flexibility of a yoga routine.
Ensuring your leggings are durable is the first step to finding the best leggings for yoga. Having a reliable and durable pair will mean you can keep coming back to them wash after wash, and you won’t need to spend a fortune on re-buying. Being the best is all about withstanding the stretches, reaches, and lunges that are unavoidable in yoga.
Looking for fabrics made up of key materials like nylon, elastane, and Lycra all indicate that the leggings will tick the boxes for durability. Opting for a pure cotton pair, for example, wouldn’t be the way to go. You need fabrics that will work with you, not against you. And keeping your yoga leggings in tip top condition is a must if you don’t want holes popping up in all the wrong places.
Yoga might look relaxing on the surface, but there is a lot of core strength that goes into getting it right. Don’t get us wrong, we love a bit of yoga to help with physical and mental wellbeing, but we don’t recommend making your life difficult by opting for uncomfortable leggings.
Due to the nature of yoga, there is a lot of pulling, stretching and leaning involved. To stay comfy during all this exercise, you’ll want a pair of leggings that holds up on your waist. This will help to keep you covered and not having to focus on pulling up the waistband ever 2 seconds. Going for a low-rise fit, you’ll end up feeling uncomfortable as the fabric may dig into your skin as you move. Not to mention feeling uncomfortable due to the lack of coverage. High waisted is the way to go for a more comfortable fit.
The fabric used comes into play again when talking about comfort. Silky smooth and buttery soft fabrics will mean your yoga experience is a lot more enjoyable. Uplifting your routine by giving you the feeling of wearing a second skin.
We’d say that the best UK yoga leggings have GOT to be comfortable. Afterall, you’re not going to last long in the yoga game if you are feeling uncomfortable the whole time. So, consider the cosiness before buying your next set of yoga pants.
It might seem obvious, but taking into account how stretchy your yoga leggings are is vital. You might make the assumption that all leggings move with your body. This might be true for your everyday kind of movement – walking around town and up and down stairs. But frankly, that minimal movement doesn’t cut it when it comes to yoga.
When transitioning from mountain pose to tree pose to downward facing dog, you’re going to need yoga leggings that can stretch, bend and flex with the movement of your body. Again, this comes down to the material make-up of the leggings. Elastane and Lycra are the two components you’re looking for. Without these two materials, you’re unlikely to find the leggings stretch to the level you need. To be sure, look for key indicators in the product descriptions such as ‘4-Way Stretch’. All the best UK yoga leggings will have this. When the stretchability is highlighted from the off, you can be sure that these leggings have been designed with flexibility in mind.
