Some of my comfy sweat pants are made of stiff and thick fabric which impairs my ability to get into certain poses that require a lot of flexibility.


It's good to have you back, Twilightprincess.

To OP's point though, isn't that why guys wear muscle shirts? Kind of showing off?

My mother wears Yoga pants to her Tai chi lessons. I really doubt she's wearing them to show off. She told me she's been looking everywhere for new Yoga pants but she either can't find any or they're really expensive. I guess all the other women bought them just to look sexy. :roll:

Personally, I could never really get into them. And not just literally. :lol:

But I’m not wearing them to show off. I wear them because they are comfortable and practical for yoga. I wouldn’t wear them, though, if I didn’t look good in them (especially if I had a lot of cellulite or something). I’d be too self conscious. I don’t like standing out.

I definitely don’t wear them to show off or stand out. They are so common these days that it’s not like I’m wearing anything unusual that would draw attention to me. Young women seem to wear them more than jeans (at least in my area they do).

Maybe just a difference of opinion, but I think looking good in form fitting attire stands out. Then again, I'm a heterosexual man, so.
