History of yoga pants
Yoga itself has been a popular practice in India for decades before coming to the United States in the 1950’s, thus beginning the creation of the modern yoga pants. Traditionally in the 1960’s, women and girls alike were beginning to do more socially unusual practices, like aerobics, and they needed a trouser fit that would be durable enough to help them complete these activities. They began wearing a thin-like stretchy and tight-fitting material when doing these athletics. However, it didn’t take long for many to realize that corrections needed to be made to these trousers, known as yoga pants, to aide them in becoming more comfortable and functional. One of the more surprising things about yoga pants is that they do not have an official creator. Instead, it took many different inventors discovering the uses of different fabrics, such as cotton, spandex, and nylon, as the ideal fabrics needed to improve the comfort and functionality of yoga pants. As time went on, the yoga pants went through different variations of styles: mainly the yoga capri, and now the popular and common ankle length yoga pants. The ankle length yoga pants became an automatic success due to the variety of different prints, elastically, comfort, lightness and breathability of the materials, and the flattering shape given to the person wearing these pants.
Yoga Pants features
The Marbek yoga pants were created to match the equally stylish and comfortable yoga camo tops. They follow the same yoga pants design of being ankle length with an elastic band. Each one of their yoga pants comes in four different camo colours: green, yellow, orange, and purple. Some of the appeal of the yoga pant stems from the elastic band which is all black and shows the name of the company, Marbek. However, another selling point is the interesting camo pattern and the thick, yet breathable material it’s made from. A key feature in the yoga pants is that despite being extremely durable, they are easy to wash in the washing machine without too many special instructions.
How to select the right yoga pants
Unlike regular pants, yoga pants have an easier path to finding your correct size. After choosing one of the four stylish Marbek designs, a person can use the Marbek online sizing chart to see which size would fit best. Marbek details how to measure shoulder width, back length, sleeve length, chest circumference, and more importantly for the yoga pants, waist circumference. The company shows sizing options for men, women, and footwear – however, it is important to note that all sizing is taken in centimetres (CM). Moreover, another important factor to consider is what you plan on using the yoga pants for.
If you want to use them for strenuous physical activities, you should look into getting a pair that has a thick material along with sweat-resistant fabrics and a higher waist to avoid any ripping or sweat related stains appearing on the pants. These are ideal for the gym, hiking, and high-intensity workouts.
If you plan on using yoga pants in a more relaxed environment, you should consider getting a loose pair that allows for slow and comfortable movements. These would be ideal for yoga classes and lounging around the house.
Lastly, if you’re more interested in wearing yoga pants for the style, then you should look for that one that focus more on fashion than athleticism, these usually sport the same slim-fitting style, but instead, they’re made to look more appropriate to wear daily.
How to care for your yoga pants
Luckily, caring for your yoga pants is as easy as putting them on. It is recommended that you wash them on a normal cycle with cold water. Then for drying, you can put them in the drying machine on medium heat to avoid shrinking or the erosion of the colours. It's not recommended that your iron your yoga pants – however if it is necessary, the iron should be set on the lowest heat setting and the yoga pants shouldn’t be ironed on the edges. It is recommended that to remove stains you should avoid any chlorine-based laundry cleaners and any fabric softeners.
