What Women Wear to Yoga


Yoga Tops

You will need some sort of breathable, athletic shirt, either a tank top, sleeveless shirt, t-shirt, long-sleeve shirt or a yoga bra. These items should be comfortable so you will be confident and lightweight because you will get hot and work up a sweat. Even as a beginner, you will be inverted (upside-down) a lot, whether it’s downward dog, headstand, crow pose, shoulder stand, etc. and a loose shirt will naturally want to fall down and expose your tummy so if that makes you uncomfortable invest in a pair of high-waisted yoga pants or a more form fitting shirt that will hug your stomach and not expose it.

Yoga Pants & Shorts

Yoga pants should be comfortable, stretchable and offer lots of mobility. Any style is fine, long leggings, loose pants, capris, and shorts. Just make sure it is something that wicks sweat, is breathable and you can move in.

Other Items

Hair Bands/Headband – It is a very small thing but VERY important. If you have longer hair you will need a pony tail holder or something to hold your hair back. Hair falling in your eyes every time you go upside down is no fun and makes it too hard to concentrate.

Water Bottle– A water bottle is a necessity, you must stay hydrated and it is a great excuse to take a break for minute and catch your breath.

Yoga Mat – Most studios have mats that you can use which makes it very easy and convenient but if you can’t take the germ concept (lots of stranger’s feet on the mat you are currently using) or if you just like the idea of having your own, than a yoga mat is definitely on the Essentials List

  • This is a great site and article. You have given me some awesome ideas for my girlfriend's Christmas present, she LOVES elephants and the Leggings Depot Capris have two cool elephant designs, they are perfect for her. After the holidays I will show her this site, she will definitely want to buy more Yoga gear.

    • Hi Tom,
      I am so happy you found such a perfect gift idea. I love the Leggings Depot Capris too. I love flowers and they have a ton of cool flower patterns but also unicorn, dog, music notes, geometric designs and tons more. These yoga leggings are so much fun!

  • Hey, where is the stuff for guys :-) Women are so lucky, there is so much good yoga gear available for them in the marketplace today. As a guy, it is more difficult to find a variety of good stuff. However, it is becoming easier each year as the manufacturers are realizing that yoga is no longer just for the girls. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to coming back sometime soon to see what you have for me

  • Excellent post about what to wear to yoga. It is important to wear the right outfit for any activity but it can be a little intimidating the first time you walk into a yoga studio, it;s nice to know what to expect. I like when you gave importance for hairbands too, I always forget that and my hair is always getting in the way. I am very interested in the Wide Leg Yoga Pants. Where I do yoga everybody wears tight leggings, I'm not really into that look for myself. I lean towards more comfortable pants like sweats. Are there any drawback to these cute loose pants?

    • Hi Kavitha,
      Thanks for the question about the super-cute, AMiERY Wide Leg Yoga Pants. These pants come in a variety of designs and patterns like flowers, american flag, polka dots and more. I don't think I would call them drawbacks but I would say there are some differences to the form fitting leggings. First of all when you go upside down the wide pant leg will go slide down and expose your legs, unless that would make you crazy I don't think its a problem just what it does. I think these will actually be more comfortable and cooler then sweats since they are lightweight. I think you will love them.

  • I enjoyed reading you post about what do you wear to Yoga? My sister and I both use the CRZ YOGA Long Sleeve T-Shirt because of the comfort of the fabric and the good fit. Samantha also wears the High-waisted leggings for tummy control. She says they give her great back support as well. Great workout gear suggestions.

    • Thanks for your comment Vanna,
      Yes the CRZ YOGA Long Sleeve T-Shirt is a great shirt. I wear it on cooler days as another layer until I warm up. I love the cool, subtle design on the chest. The 5Stars High waisted leggings are awesome for a little extra tummy control to help make you feel more confident. Great choices and thanks for sharing your thoughts on these items.
