I'll be the first one to admit that loving your body the way it is can sometimes be a challenge. It's especially hard when you're surrounded by images of how society thinks you should look – or when you shop at stores that seem to specifically cater to that one "ideal" body shape. So what's a curvy girl to do, right? Well, for one thing she can stop wishing her curves away and start shopping at stores that value every customer, no matter the size.
That's why I love Lands' End. When they design plus size clothing they actually take the time to adjust the proportions of the piece for a better fit on a plus size body instead of just adding more fabric to a size six legging. And we've all been in those leggings. Saggy bottoms, too-tight-thighs, not-so-elastic-waist bands. Don't waste your time shopping yoga pants anywhere else. Check out my take on the best Lands' End Yoga pants for plus size ladies and get your athleisure wardrobe set for whatever life throws at you.
They call these activewear pants but if I'm being honest – and you know I am – I don't consider excessive movement a requirement for wearing these. The soft, stretchy fabric is so comfortable you'll think you're getting away with something wearing these out in public. But, of course, if you want to get your move on you can totally do that too. The moisture wicking fabric has just enough stretch to feel tailored without being tight so they feel (and look) amazing through all of your workouts. And the elastic waistband isn't going to roll down because it's designed to be wide enough to keep you covered. What else do you need in a plus size yoga pant? How about pockets? Because it's got them too. Need I say more?
If you're looking for a pair of plus size leggings (wo)man enough to handle your intense workout routine then these are the workout pants for you. They offer a body hugging fit that won't restrict movement thanks to the four way stretch woven front panels and compression knit fabric in the back. Plus the flatlock seams resist chafing which is a big plus when you're operating at max speed. Oh, and they're also available in high waist if more coverage is where you feel most comfortable. Basically, wherever you are on your workout journey these hybrid compression leggings are built to stay up and stay in place – offering extra support from start to finish. And we all could use some extra support from time to time, don't you think?
Designed to take you from the road to the trail to running errands and then lounging on a Saturday, these soft, lightweight active knit joggers are the weekend pant you've been looking for. Of course you don't have to just wear them on the weekends, but they're so comfortable you may feel guilty wearing them during the week. Plus the lightweight and comfy fabric these pants are made from make them ideal for long flights and arduous road trips too. Have pants, will travel, am I right?
Sometimes you just need a pair of cute capri yoga pants to make all of your daily must-dos go a little smoother. That's where these stylishly comfy yoga pants come in. No need to keep these performance pants tucked away in your workout drawer – these were designed to fit the way you move in and out of the gym. Like the rest of the line, they of course are made from that moisture wicking, soft, stretch fabric that fits just right when you're working out. But the wide elastic waistband sits so comfortably on your middle that you'll also be tempted to pair them with a cute tunic and some stylish shoes to get your steps in around town too. Plus, all of the Lands' End activewear yoga pants are made with fabric that provides UPF 50 sun protection, so you don't have to worry about stepping out into the light when you're styling your new favorite sporty look.
Tall or short, curvy or slim, leggings, pants or capris—when it comes to buying yoga pants, the only thing that really matters is a great fit. Lands' End yoga pants are designed for women of every size. Don't waste your energy shopping the stores that don't get it. Look for your perfect fit at landsend.com.
