There are many benefits to choosing high waist yoga leggings for your next pair
But what are they, and do you know them all?
High Waist Leggings are really the Best for Yoga & Workouts too!
The real benefits of high waist yoga leggings are becoming increasingly obvious as more and more high waist leggings hit the market each year. Since we started our little business back in 2015, we have noticed a steady growth in the number of other brands and companies producing Yoga Leggings. Yoga leggings (or yoga pants) are becoming more and more popular every day. Happily, this popularity doesn’t seem to be going out of fashion anytime soon.
In the Beginning
From the day we started our business making yoga leggings, we knew that there were a few essential features that we wanted for every pair that we produced. These included having lovely long legs, being made of a lightweight fabric, being so super comfortable to wear, obviously made to a high-quality, a quick-drying fabric would be handy for us mums, and being colourful & stylish so we could wear them in the yoga class and on the school run.
But most of all, we wanted every pair to have a high waist!
From Our Old Leggings Wardrobe
After practising yoga in other leggings, we could see that some of the leggings we had in our wardrobes only hit the mark for some of the points that we mentioned above. Sadly, very few leggings we owned ticked every box on our ‘must-have’ list. Lots of them never seemed to have a high enough waist for us to feel comfortable wearing them. And we mean feeling comfortable physically and mentally!
But Why Choose High Waist Yoga Leggings?
Here are our top 7 reasons.
1. They keep everything tucked in and looking nice
They flatten and smooth your figure, they enhance your silhouette and give you a great slimming effect.
2. A higher waist is the best style
They just look better all round. We should know, we have so many pairs of leggings in our wardrobes. The high waist pairs always seem to look the best for any body shape.
3. Support in your yoga class
Because our high waist leggings are made from a mix of polyester and spandex, they give you a perfect figure-hugging and supportive fit. Proper support when doing yoga is essential. So, support and style combined in one single pair gives you the best of both worlds.
4. No more constant adjusting
Having to pull up your leggings after every position can sometimes be more tiring than the class itself. A lower waistband can pinch and cut into you just as you get into position and this is not a nice feeling. It is distracting when your leggings stop you from doing what you have gone to the class to actually do.
If you currently have a lower waisted pair of leggings, there are three choices:

- Read this handy article from the American Yoga Association that outlines a few of the best ways to keep your leggings from rolling down. They even say “To cope with this issue, try wearing high-waisted leggings”!
5. The Dreaded Muffin Top
No More Muffin-Top. No matter how thin you are, a pair of yoga pants with a lower waistband can still give you a small muffin-top. A wide and smooth high waistband comes up to where your stomach is smallest.
High waist leggings = No muffin top. Simple.
6. With a longer leg, they are Elegant and Flattering
The combination of a high waist and longer leg length really make your legs look elegant and flattering for any size and shape of yoga body.
7. Wear them with a crop top or a long line sports bra
High waist yoga leggings look great with whatever you wear, but when paired with a crop top or sports bra, they really shine. You won’t feel overexposed around your middle and your leggs will look longer than they ever have before.
So there we are, just a few reasons why we think that high waisted yoga leggings are the only choice when it comes to leggings.
Good luck in your search for your next pair. Seeing as you are already here, why not take a look at our shop, you might just find something you love!
