Yoga Pant Fit Guide
Yoga Pant Fit Guide
Now that I am making 4 different styles of Yoga Pants, I wanted to write about the features of each style to help you choose which pair works best for you and your body.
We all know Pants are the hardest thing to fit - even stretchy yoga pants!!
All 4 pairs have this in common:
1. The Fabric is hand-dyed by myself using low-impact procion dyes.
2. They are hand-crafted from the 53% Hemp, 43% Organic Cotton, 4% Lycra blend. I choose the heavier weight hemp to sew the pants out of. The weight is 9.5 oz., this weight holds up to the longevity we all know hemp to have. It doesn’t stretch out as much, making it the ideal choice for an active style pant.
3. Sizing & Fit: These pants have a stretchy waistband, it’s best to go off your hip measurement for sizing. If you’re in between sizing - size down. If you want a fitted fit - size down. If you want a regular fit - size normal. Follow this link to our size chart.
Salamba Pant -
My original style of yoga pant for ITD, and what all 4 are based off of. Salamba (supportive in Sanskrit) has a 6” fold-over waistband and a “regular” fit leg. These are the most casual style that I make.
Nomad Pant -
The exact same pattern as the Salamba with a couple tweaks to the pattern. First, it has pockets (YAY), 2nd - the waistband is 4” and has ruching on the back. 3rd - the ankle cuffs - this makes them a better “active” style of pant. You can see your ankles when doing things. The leg is “relaxed” just like the Salamba Pant. This is my personal favorite.
Inspire Pant -
I drafted this pattern off of our Salamba Pant, but tightened up the leg, so it would be a better choice for being active in. It’s hard to rock climb in pants when you can’t see your foot very well. It’s also easier for a yoga teacher to correct your body posture when they can see your leg. This style also has a 4” waistband, the leg has a “slim fit” to it.
Drishti Pant -
Drishti means “focused gaze.” These are my yoga pant that fit like a yoga “tight”. The legs are fitted with seams stitched down the side that have a roomy pocket sewn in to the side panel. They have a 4” waistband with ruching on the back. These are ideal for activewear, and layering under tunics/dresses - perfect because you will always have a pocket :)
