A war is being waged on our blessed yoga pants. Once again, our stretchy bottoms are being attacked, but we must never surrender!* In case you missed it, an ill-fated op-ed was unleashed upon the yoga-practicing public Sunday daring to explain Why Yoga Pants Are Bad For Women. Excuse us? These yoga pants? *looks down [...]


So you can file this one under “No Good News.” When you think of ahimsa—non-harming—it’s not usually your yoga pants you’re worried about. But now a new study is telling us that our cozy stretch pants are actually doing more harm to the planet than good. The problem? Microscopic plastics that shed from your yoga [...]


There are few things more infuriating than telling a woman what she should and shouldn’t wear. Telling her she’s “bizarre” or “disturbing” for publicly wearing yoga pants—god’s gift to everyday lower extremity comfort—is literally opening the floodgates for hell’s fury.

Imagine yoga pants that are custom made for your body, your measurements, your curves. Hello, Comfytown. You are now the mayor. It may sound too good to [...]


Oh, deer. Athleta is in trouble for allegedly ripping off someone else’s yoga pants design. K-Deer is a NJ-based activewear company run by owner and founder Kristine Deer. She is not on the design team at Athleta but somehow almost her exact designs ended up on the Athleta website in late December. Apparently, Deer noticed [...]


Sometimes we think our yoga pants have a mind of their own, but this is a whole other story. Meet the next innovation in yoga tech – yoga pants that guide your ass-ana. They look like any old fancy yoga pants, but oh no, they are so much fancier. These pants send you “vibrations” to [...]


Yoga pants at the grocery store? You betcha. This cute and funny video parodies our obsession with wearing our athleisure suits out to basically everywhere we go. (Activewear sounds so much fancier with British accents, doesn’t it?) Though some people think yoga pants are ruining women, there are others of us who will swear by [...]
