A comfortable and quality exercise outfit can really make or break a good yoga workout. When it comes to a yogi life, there’s not much worse than when your leggings start to fall down after just a few poses or having a sports bra that isn’t supportive enough for the stretches you’re doing.
While we always encourage budgeting, sometimes there are workout essentials that are worth splurging on and lululemon’s yoga clothing and accessories are definitely one of them.
So, if you’re in the market for new yoga shirts, shorts, leggings, bras or accessories, you might as well go with the best!
The athletic apparel retailer offers tons of great clothing options for all types of yogis, whether you’re just starting your yoga journey or have been practicing for years, ahead the New York Post has hand picked more than a dozen great options for both men and women.
1. lululemon Ebb to Train Bra, $68
“Some days I just feel a little more modest than others and seek more coverage up on the podium,” Christina Phillips, Master Instructor at SoulCycle in NYC told The Post.
“I like this bra for its high neck, comfortable fabric and fit. Yoga, barre, cycling — I always feel secure in this one. Especially with certain yoga poses, it’s nice knowing I won’t need to adjust to keep things in place.”
The new Instill High-Rise Tights are especially made for yoga and provide smoothing support and softness you can feel in every breath, stretch and pose.
3. lululemon Align™ High-Rise Short 8″, $58+
Want a little more breathability? Consider the Align High-Rise Biker Shorts. They come in more than 20 colors and feature a hidden waistband pocket that fits a card or a key.
4. lululemon Energy Bra, $52
Cheyenne Tilford, a Hawaii-based certified yoga instructor, told the New York Post that the lululemon Energy Bra is one of her favorites due to the support. “This bra is awesome for when I do inversions in yoga because it’s very supportive,” Tilford said.
The Key to Balance Tank Top comes in 10 different shades including this light-pink color and has a key-hole back for optimal breathability. Plus, it features a built-in shelf bra for added support and coverage — the cups are removable.
1. lululemon In Mind Pant 30″, $118
The men’s lululemon In Mind Pant are specially made for male yogis, feel cool to the touch and have mesh fabric ventilation.
If you sweat a lot during your yoga sessions, this short sleeve, venting T-shirt is the way to go. Thanks to “Silverescent™ technology”, this shirt inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria on the fabric.
For something with less fabric, consider the lululemon muscle-tee version.
If you’re practicing yoga in warm weather, shorts are probably the way to go. The Pace Breaker Linerless Shorts come in more than a dozen colors and three different lengths: 5, 7 and 9 inches.
On the opposite end, if you’re doing yoga in the winter, a good quality long-sleeve shirt will take you a long way. This one is designed to keep the air flowing during even the most intense sweat sessions.
