As the temperature drops below 30 degrees, and you don’t feel like going out to your yoga studio, even when you know you should. Then try investing in a new yoga outfit to motivate yourself, this has worked for me.
Today, I want to show you some yoga onesies or leotards that’d surely impress your yoga mates, if your dedication to the practice hasn’t yet. Before I start, please rest assured I am not sponsored by the brands mention here.
For years, I wore separates to my studio classes. About 8 years ago, I saw a woman sporting a one-piece, it looked pretty novel. At the time, one-pieces were only available in dance shops. They were not designed for style per se but more for utility. For this reason, those ones were simple and they tended to shorten the appearance of legs and stretch the length of torso, thus made you look shorter in general.
But all that has become a thing of the past …
My no. 1 favorite brand is Lucas Hugh. Their one-pieces focus on performance as well as style. Each one of them is made to accentuate the body’s natural curve and shape. With a pinched waist (with forgiving elastics,) it elongates the look of your body. The strategically integrated mesh makes you look like you are wearing a pair of high-waist leggings with a sexy sports bra from the back. All of the designs make you look taller, waist thinner and legs longer.
I have three and like them a lot. Their construction and technology are worth the investment. Also, did I mention some of them are cool-looking enough for a night out partying? I am serious.
Another brand that I wear is Olympia Activewear. This American brand also focuses on utility and style. The material of their body-suits is slightly heavier than Lucas Hugh’s. Whereas Lucas Hugh onesies are strategically lined interiorly, the Olympia bodysuits do not need extra interior lining to protect your modesty. On the design, it is minimal but chic. When I got mine, the striped one only came in blue, now they also have a red one. For the latest design, check out this one with a mesh top.
My first onesie discovery was actually Live The Process, it is still one of my favorite brands out there. This brand is started by an awesome woman, Robyn Berkly, who quit her job to follow her passion of yoga. Along the way of self-discovery, she founded this brand. All her pieces are ethically made in the USA.
The one I have hugs the body comfortably and moves with my body in conjunction. The last thing you want to think about while moving through poses is if your cloth is providing you sufficient coverage.
Personally, I prefer their one-color pieces. They come in a variety of different colors, rather than just the usual blue and black. Also, on a freezing day, you can wear them underneath your tops and jeans to keep away the cold air. Now, isn’t this practical and versatile?
Here you have it, my lovely readers. Until I discover other brands, these are my only go-to ones. Try them all, let me know what you think!
