6 Yoga Clothing Brands Making a Splash This Summer
Just because you wear yoga clothes for function or comfort does not mean that you have to blend in with the crowd. This summer, choose yoga clothing that makes you feel sexy, empowered, confident, secure, spunky, creative and inspired, or however you would like to feel in the moment, whether you’re on the mat or out on the town.
Here are 6 yoga clothing brands that are making a splash this summer:
Designed to be uplifting and inspiring, the new collection by KiraGrace takes sassy and sexy to a whole new level. Just take a look at the Warrior Victoria Halter with its asymmetrical top that gives just the right amount of support with a whole lot of sass. Pair the halter with the Warrior Tiffany Seva Legging that features ultra-sexy slice cut-outs at the thigh and calf. Feeling ferocious? Try the Flirt Capri in leopard or a variety of other prints to show off your fun and flirty side. All KiraGrace products are made in the US of high-quality imported fabrics. The bottoms are available in XXS-L.
Best of all, your legging purchase will make a positive impact on the world. KiraGrace will donate a percentage of each sale to sponsor three months of care for a child in need through Yoga Medicine’s India Seva Project.
For those of you that appreciate chic and elegant yoga wear that makes you feel pretty and put together in an instant, Montiel is the brand for you. Even if you are feeling frumpy and just want to lounge on the couch all day, become effortlessly styled when you slip on the wrinkle-free Cowl Back Tank over your Teardrop Bra, the uniboob-free sports bra that gives support that flatters – instead of flattening – your girls. For chilly nights or even chillier studios, slip on the Hanley Long Sleeve, the cover-up that tells the world you mean business, but are still fun at heart with the draped, open back. Pair these tops with the Lea Legging in black or white, the non-pilling, no-fuzz legging that will keep any color panty completely concealed – yes, even the white ones! The leggings are offered in XS-L.
Kast Fitness Wear
Bringing a little Brazilian flare and personality to the US market, the form-fitting leggings and capris from Kast Fitness Wear are designed with your active yoga lifestyle in mind. When you slip on a pair, you will feel inspired and motivated to get on your mat, and you will immediately notice the high-quality fabric and comfortable fit. Hand-cut and sewn in a family-run factory in Brazil, each bottom features flat seams and a mid-rise, flat waistband that remains comfortable and flattering from day to night. The durable yet lightweight Supplex-blend fabric absorbs moisture and is quick-drying to keep you cool and comfortable, even during hot yoga. You will stand out in a sea of black leggings with Kast’s bold colors and patterns, including their signature Sugar Skulls capris. Other fun patterns include the feisty Pink Zebra striped capris, the bold Blue Empress Leggings, and the stylish Urban Punk. The leggings and capris are available in XS-XL.
Hand-dyed in Arizona and sewn in California for your yoga lifestyle, Yoga Democracy designs beautiful and comfortable clothing that is made from recycled plastic – the equivalent of 12 bottles for each pair of leggings! How cool is that? The fabrics are specially dyed with a process that prevents them from bleeding or fading over time, so your Butterfly leggings and bold Glorious Summer leggings will remain as vibrant on day 1 as they will on day 100.
Available in sizes 4-12, the pilling-free leggings feature chafe-free seams and a tag-free design for maximum comfort and a luxurious, silky smooth feel. Best of all, the elastic-free waist will keep you smooth while banishing your muffin top and the compression feels like second skin. Pair the leggings and crops with the supportive and stylish Choli Top, a sweat wicking sports bra that keeps the girls in place without the extra bounce, and you are ready for your mat and beyond!
Nina B. Roze
The collection from Nina B. Roze is designed to be functional for athletes, but with luxurious style and feminine elegance for your everyday wear. The styles accentuate your body with durable fabrics that wick moisture and hug your feminine curves. Just see the brand’s signature Heart Butt™ Yoga Legging that lifts your booty with the flatlock heart-shaped pattern and draws attention to your best asset (pun intended). For a bold look, the 2Tone Hidden Pocket Yoga Capri is a basic black capri in the back with a colorful abstract paint splatter print in the front. Want some extra breathability during your hot yoga or high intensity workouts? Look no further than the Side Plank Mesh Yoga Legging, which features compression jersey fabric with black sport mesh panels and contrast stitching for a slimming look. Pair this legging with the 2Tone Sports Bra, a low- to mid-impact bralette that has three supportive fabrics and double spaghetti strap support that lifts your bust and holds it in place throughout all of your asanas. The pants are available in sizes XS-L.
Made in New York City by yoga teacher Kat Schamens, the collection from Katasana Apparel is far from boring, with its bold colors and metallic fabrics. Offered in a variety of bright colors to spice up your practice and life, the Sparkle collection is designed to reflect your inner sparkle so you can show off your effervescent personality from the inside out. The leggings have a comfortable waistband that does not shift or move during your practice, and the super stretchy fabric feels like second skin in the best sort of way.
Just slip on a pair of the Oil Spill Leggings and you will feel instantly “fancy” and put together. You will be the center of attention with the bold Mermaid Sea or the Hot Pink Sparkle Leggings, which can take you from your mat to a night on the town. Pair the leggings or capri pants with a matching bra top, which can be worn alone or underneath a modest tank for a pop of color and personality. For yogis that enjoy hot yoga or live in warmer climates, the hot shorts may become your next go-to item in your wardrobe. The bottoms are available in XS-L.
