While the rest of the US is preparing for the biggest football game of the year, I’m cleaning out my closet. While I haven’t embraced the Kondo kraze that is going on right now, I’m trying to downsize. Just. So. Much. Stuff.
For example, I have an obsession with yoga pants. It’s borderline unhealthy, but since I work from home I just consider them my uniform. And while I don’t do yoga (I should!), I do work out a few times a week, so they’re a necessary part of my wardrobe.
Finding the right yoga pants isn’t as simple as it might seem. I know, right? They’re spandex pants… how hard can it be? Well, I am here to tell you that finding the perfect pair of stretchy pants isn’t as simple as you might think. Remember the scandal about see-through yoga pants from one of the world’s biggest sellers of all things yoga?? I rest my case.
I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of pants for quite some time. I’ve tried several, and some are definitely better than others. Here are a few of my faves and not so faves.
Fabletics- I know, right? I shied away from these forever because of the celebrity endorsement, but I got my first couple pairs and love them. You join their VIP membership and get two pairs of leggings for $24. Every month after that you can either get a new outfit or skip the month.
I love the High-Waisted Solid Powerhold leggings because they have a higher waist and are thick enough to start up to squats and kickboxing. They don’t lose their shape or stretch out and come in a ton of different colors. Color me a convert!
90 Degree by Reflex– These (IMO) are the finest inexpensive yoga pants one can find on Amazon. They’re not as thick as some of the others I have found, but for the price they hold up really well for awhile. I find they last about a year before I need to replace them, and I wear them often.

Zella– I heard about these from a favorite blogger of mine and tried so hard to love them. The pair I purchased is really light-weight, and I don’t feel like the fabric is very forgiving. They’re high-waist, but keep coming down. Sadly, just not a fan.
So many leggings, so little time… If you have any faves I need to know about, please share! The hunt for lycra to love is never-ending!
