Some Tips to choose your Yoga Dress
Yoga Tops- Choose yoga wear that is comfortable, with modest coverage that and not of too much revealing. You will not be comfortable tucking at your clothes during yoga class. Stretchable cotton-blend t-shirts- blouse that hug the torso will work well for both men and women. Avoid tops and blouse with loose necklines or collars; they are irritating during inversions, such as shoulder stand or invert ashanas. Women should look for bra support built into a yoga top.
Yoga Bootom/pants- Yoga pants with an elastic waistband additionally if it’s with waist draw cord are best while holding and securing your pant ( Make sure the draw string should be smooth else it will make a lump and may irritate you while lying on the stomach ) .Chose your pants that conform to the body’s shape . For women, yoga pants are available with a foldable waist for extra comfort and warmth. Capri-style yoga pants are also famous for both men and women. You can also get the stretched leggings for both man and women for ashanas class and Pajama for literature class.
