You could drop $100 on a great, new pair of yoga pants. Or, you could buy one of these way cheaper versions that are every bit as flattering and fabulous.
When you’re a yogi, there’s a good chance you have 10 or more pairs of yoga pants in regular rotation. And at an average of $80 a pop—well, let’s just say you’ve likely dropped more money outfitting your yoga habit than you care to admit.
Yet here’s the thing: A great-fitting pair of yoga pants can make all the difference when it comes to your practice. Buy a pair that’s too sheer and you’ll be self-conscious every time you’re in Down Dog; wear a pair that doesn’t quite fit right and you’ll be futzing with your waistband instead of putting your hands where they’re supposed to be. Which is why it can be tempting to fork over $100-plus when you find a pair of yoga pants that work for you.

Maybe your foot gets itchy where the seam of your sock hits your pinky toe, or you start to fidget with your shirt. Or, perhaps you start to focus on the too-tight waist band of your yoga pants, or the fact that your undies are bunched in all the wrong places.

The 6 Best Undies to Wear Under Your Yoga Pants

While many yogis go commando in yoga pants, there are plenty of practitioners who are pro panties. But if you fall in that camp, you know how crucial it is to choose the best underwear for yoga.
