Yoga Pants – Breathable, Soft and Not Too Tight

yoga pants

The right yoga pants or tights can make all the difference in your practice. A good pair will be breathable, soft and not too tight. Tight clothes can cause chafing and irritation as well as increase the risk of infection.

Hummel has a range of tights and yoga pants to keep you comfortable during your workouts. They are also designed for a number of different body types and needs.


Yoga pants are designed to feel like a second skin. They are made from thick and soft materials and are available in a variety of lengths, from leggings to full-length trousers. They are also made from fabrics that are breathable and quick-drying. In addition, they feature a firm, supportive waistband that stays in place during Downward Dog and Forward Folds.

The thickness and fabric of yoga pants will depend on how intense the workout will be. If you plan to practice intense forms of yoga such as Bikram or Ashtanga, you may want to prioritize a pair with more compressive fabric and flat seaming. This will reduce bulk and prevent chafing.

The most popular pairs of yoga pants tend to be on the pricier side, but they also have more features such as moisture-wicking and anti-odor technology. Some even have a hidden pocket and UPF 50 sun protection rating. In addition, they are easy to clean and come in a range of colors.


Breathability is a key concept in yoga, and you’ll want to choose pants that are comfortable enough to keep you cool. Breathable fabrics allow sweat to flow freely, so you can stay at the right temperature. This helps the body’s thermoregulatory processes, which maintain the balance between energizing exercise and cooling down.

Yoga pants can be tight or loose, depending on your preference. However, they should be flexible and have an elastic waistband. This ensures that they will not bunch as you move in your poses. They should also be able to wick moisture and reduce odors.

These yoga pants are made from second-skin Powervita fabric, and feature a high-waisted stretch and pockets. They are designed for both men and women, and come in a range of sizes. They are also available in a range of colors. They have positive reviews, but some customers complained that the fabric balls up between the thighs or becomes translucent during squats.


In addition to being breathable, yoga pants should be made of moisture-wicking fabric. The wicking action will prevent the sweat from staying in contact with your skin for too long, which can lead to bacteria build-up. This can cause chafing, irritation, and infection.

Leggings are a popular fashion item, but they can be very harmful to your health. Wearing them for long periods of time can cause a variety of skin problems, including intertrigo, folliculitis, and tinea cruris. In addition, leggings can be uncomfortable if they rub against your skin.

To prevent these problems, you should wash your leggings regularly. Washing them on the gentle cycle will reduce the amount of wear and tear they undergo. You should also use WIN, a laundry detergent that uses oxygen ions to break down oil and other contaminants. The resulting cleaner will keep your leggings smelling fresh and looking new.

Easy to clean

Yoga pants are usually machine washable, though you should check the label for specific washing instructions. It’s best to use cold water and avoid the dryer as the hot temperatures can cause the fabric to stretch and shrink.

It’s also a good idea to wash the pants separately from other clothes, as synthetic fabrics tend to collect lint easily. You should also turn the pants inside out before putting them into the laundry to prevent wearing down of the outer fabric.

You should also use a detergent specifically designed for activewear such as ACTIVE. It uses special ingredients to break down sweat and oils that can accumulate in the fabric. This helps to keep the pants clean and fresh for longer.

When washing your yoga pants, you should always rinse them well to ensure that all of the soap is removed. This will help to preserve the elastic in the waistband and prevent it from stretching out of shape.
