I’ve been working out at the gym since college and have yet to come across a better piece of exercise apparel. These yoga pants are universally body-friendly for women of varied shapes and sizes. Over the past few years, I’ve donned a couple pairs from other brands but I always come back to my go-to gear from Victoria’s Secret.
I’m getting friends and family hooked on these! Just tonight, two of my friends who asked me where I get them had on pairs of their own! I love to share the wealth when I find something I can truly stand behind.
Where can one get these?! Order them by phone through the Victoria’s Secret catalog. These are NOT exactly the same as those carried in the Victoria’s Secret store. I’ve tried the store styles on and, while nice, not quite as many colors are offered; additionally, the store version fits me higher on the hips.
What is truly unique about these is that they are offered in 4 inseams: 30, 32, 34, and 36. Additionally, they come in XS – XL. One of my friends who just purchased her first pair is fairly tall and the other friend is rather short. The pants flatter both equally well because of the different inseams. I don’t like my pants too short, and having a few inseams to choose from ensure the length is just right. To further my point, I convinced my choosy mother, my impeccably-fashioned sis-in-law and my hard-to-convince colleague to try these. I can vouch that these pants flatter women of varied shapes and ages. And did I mention how comfy these are?!
Let’s not forget what else makes these difficult to pass up: they are priced modestly in comparison to the average workout pant, $29.50 or two for $50.00 (at times, on sale for as low as $14/pair). New colors and styles are offered each season so many of these are placed on clearance fairly regularly. Plus, Victoria’s Secret always offers money off with a minimum purchase . . . that alone offsets the shipping cost. Despite this lower price, quality is not compromised. I own some that I’ve had for years – the stretch still holds and the cotton maintains its durability. Btw, these are officially called “yoga pants” but I wear them for both strength training and cardio. Yes, they stretch seamlessly for yoga, but they definitely hold up for more rigorous exercise.
Grading Girl gives these pants an A+ for economical style, versatile color choice and flattering shape.
For the record, because I’ve been asked, 31 of these pants live in my closet. Mind you, I’ve purchased them over the course of the past few years . . . and a girl needs her colors . . . . umm . . . am I obsessed?!
