My Love Letter to My Yoga Pants

Dear Yoga and Pants,

You make me a better person.  Thank you for the comfort that you provide to me and for how safe you make me, and my mid-section, feel each and every day.  When I look at you every morning, laying there on the floor just waiting for me so patiently, I know that you will be understanding of whatever decisions that I choose to make that day; your support is empowering.

Thank you for allowing me to eat however much I please during my mealtimes by providing me with your expandable mid-line waste-line that doesn't punish my underwear line upon temporary expansion.  I want you to know that eating that third taco at lunch-time brings me immense joy each and every time. I could not do that without you.

Thank you for not requiring buttons, like my former lover required - his name is "jeans". 

Thank you for helping me defeat the evil "muffin top" that emerges in my mid-section each winter - your elasticity and your flexibility with my torso shows both your true purpose to humanity and it highlights your strong ability to adapt to non-ideal circumstances.  These are qualities that are not found in many. 

Thank you for your superb ability to truly being my "day-pants," my pajamas; and, even sometimes (ok, the truth is: often), you even become my "going out for the night" pair of pants - my ex, "Jeans," may have the looks, but 'Jeans' doesn't understand me the way that you do; I cannot bear to leave you on a Friday night.  

Sometimes I feel guilty for not being forthcoming about our relationship; please note that when I wear an extra-long shirt or a tank-top that could technically be worn as a 'dress' and which disguises your signature fold-over wrap at the hip (the fold that marks you as a "yoga pant") that this is not because I am ashamed of you; rather, I am afraid of how much I love you.  

Thank you doing a fine job at replacing all other pants in my life.  I love you forever.

Love always,

    What are your faves?

  2. Great question! Where do I start? Ha. Here are my favorite brands:

    - The "SO" brand of yoga pants (sold at Kohl's) are fantastic (usually run about $20, but you can get them on sale and/or use the Kohl's coupons if you sign up for their Kohl's card.

    - "Hard Tail" (these are a bit pricey though...around $70)

    - I really like the "Victoria's Secret" yoga pants (they sell a huge variety online), and these normally run about $20-$30.

    - "Xersion," sold at JcPenney, is pretty good, but I'd recommend going to the actual store - they don't have a good online selection currently.

    - I do NOT like the "Old Navy" brand of yoga pants...they make me look frumpy.

    - "BP" makes a good yoga pair of yoga pants (sold at Nordstrom).

    Overall, my favorite-favorites are the "SO" brand and the "Victoria's Secret" brand, and they happen to be some of the most reasonably-priced too.
