Looking for some new yoga bottoms since the weather's getting warmer? I always wear full pants in the winter, but in the summer, I go for capris. They keep me slightly cooler and are absorbant. I never wear shorts since some of the poses that require arm-to-leg contact, like Crow, would be too slippery if I was sweaty skin on sweaty skin. Plus loose fitting shorts show off all my business, and that's just not cool.
Check out this company called Inner Waves Organics. Their clothes are made with 90% organic cotton and 10% lycra, so they're unbelievably soft, yet flexible.
I love the Pono Capri ($50). They are fitted knee-length pants with rear slits in the back, so when you bend your knee, the fabric won't get stretched out or bunched up.
My favorite part about these capris is the cute dropped "V" waistline - it's hard to find a flattering waist line like that in yoga pants. Also, the diamond-shaped gusseted crotch provided more coverage than your average yoga pants, in case you like to practice yoga pantie-free.
While these little pants might seem slightly expensive, but Inner Waves Organics is an eco-conscious company. They use a low-impact dying process and sustainable materials that come from manufacturers who comply with Fair Trade Labor Practices. Buying products made from organic cotton also help protect the environment, since conventional cotton is the 2nd most heavily sprayed crop and 4th heaviest user of synthetic fertilizer. It feels good to be a conscious consumer!
