The Best Pilates and Yoga Pants for You
DJ Skins | Unique Workout Apparel for Women

When it comes to workout clothes for women, Pilates and yoga pants (same thing) can be a big challenge. Form fitting pants are best so that you and/or your teacher can see what you body is doing. But that puts demand on you to find a style that both looks good and feels comfortable.

As much as it isn't fair to generalize too much about a brand, women need help knowing where to start shopping for their style and body type. Below you will find 5 things women often want in Pilates and yoga pants along with suggestions for which brands might fit those needs.

You are Completely Sick of Basic Black:

Black is generally flattering, but lately, people are saying the color choices out there are too dull - black, navy, gray, blah. If you are ready to stretch beyond the colorful fold-over waist bands out there, try Margarita Activewear. They do have a lot of black backgrounds, but bold, colorful graphic designs make this a top choice for those looking to put a little wild in their workouts. Also, the Divine pant from Hyde comes in a bunch of great colors and Beckons yoga pants line has a bright blue and a searing red.

You Need Figure Friendly Pants:

This is a two part category. Some companies make pants with a more forgiving fabric and looser cuts, and some make shapewear-like exercise clothes, otherwise known as "toning".

To find somewhat looser cuts and lines that go with curves, I would look to Fila, Lucy's Everyday Pant, and Danskin. Fila also has a toning workout pant and Lucy's toning Perfect Core line is flattering and shaping as well.

You Want Organic Cotton and "Green" Workout Clothes:

Organic cotton may hold moisture more than certain tech fabrics, but it still feels wonderful. The new, recycled fabrics are surprisingly comfortable as well. be present has a small line of Pilates yoga pants made entirely from a recycled polyester jersey/spandex blend. It's called the Renew Elite. As for organic cotton, be present carries some organic as well as bamboo. Also, Hyde is a also good source as are Beckons and Gaiam.

HOLLIS, Maine -- On a winding country road in the middle of nowhere, a building that once housed an antique shop now holds groups of women working out.

...Some dismiss Curves as a fad, and Heavin -- a born-again Christian -- has been criticized for his conservative political views and donations to anti-abortion causes. Some members have quit the clubs over his political stands.
Heavin said he and his wife have given away some $10 million of their money this year, much of it to health clinics and organizations that promote abstinence, prenatal care and pregnancy programs
