Last Sunday, I deviated from my standard wunder under-based ensemble to try out a pair of yoga pants that I purchased over a year ago, yet still had the tags attached. The first Beyond Yoga x Kate Spade collaborative collection was released in the fall of 2015. Since then, there have been at least three more releases.
I initially bought these leggings in a medium and had to exchange for a large. I usually do not love cropped leggings (#tallgirlproblems) but these were long enough that they did not turn into Bermuda-length bike shorts. The rise on these leggings is particularly low. Compounded with the facts that the waist ran large and the fabric didn’t have enough stretch to bounce back, I found myself repeatedly pulling up the leggings throughout the class. Flowing through chatarunga to up dog, my pants definitely creeped when they caught on my yoga towel. I regretted going up a size while trying to mellow out in down dog; however I think sticking with the medium would have made the leggings too tight throughout the legs. If you have slim legs, these are the leggings for you – just err on the small side.
They are cute leggings, but unless every other pair of leggings are in the hamper, I will not be wearing these to yoga or any other fitness class again. Breaking from down dog to pull up your pants…ain’t nobody got time for that!
