Tall, Short, Buff or Not – It’s All Spandex

When I made fitness my full-time job over 3 years ago, I decided it was time to branch out from my usual suspects in the yoga pant department and try some new names.  As women, we are all shapes and sizes and what works well for one person may not work well for others.  And to be honest, I was actually starting to hate the way my new (enter brand name here) pants I had purchased were fitting me – they just weren’t comfortable.  And to me, if your yoga pants aren’t comfortable then it’s time to kick them to the curb and find a new pair.

So, here are my most beloved “yoga pants” you just have to try!


When I first heard about K-Deer and the message behind them, I just knew I had to go out and try a pair.  My love for these leggings is two-fold.  First, they have these signature stripes which are all named after strong women with a portion of the profits from the sale of them going back to non-profit organizations.  That in and of itself gets a major thumbs up from me.  Second, the leggings make me feel AMAZING!  They are high-waisted and super flattering.  The prints are one of a kind and pretty spectacular.  I always go a size up from my usual size as they tend to hug your body in all the right places.

These are my new, “go-to” leggings.  They are classic but with a little bit of flair.  They don’t cut in to give you an awkward silhouette or give you the dreaded muffin top.  They are super comfy yet stay put no matter what activity you’re doing.  Plus, the material is like no other yoga pant you will try on. (Side note, their wrap sweater is super stylish yet practical for breastfeeding no matter where you are.)

Before these bad boys, I had no idea a legging that was one size fits all would truly be comfortable and flattering!  What I love most about these leggings is that they have a nice high waist, the material is fun and crinkly and even better than that is they make you feel sassy and sexy!  Plain leggings, these are not!


I would love to hear what your favorites are!
