Reasons To Update Your Yoga Pants and Leggings

Reasons To Update Your Yoga Pants and Leggings
We've all got that one favorite pair of leggings that fit like a dream. You know exactly which ones I'm referring to. They're the pair that you'll find an excuse to do laundry for just so you can wear them again. What about your other pairs? If you've got a stack of workout clothes in your closet collecting dust, just know that you're not alone.

If you take the time to think about it, why did you stop wearing those pieces? Was it because they weren't comfortable anymore? Were they no longer providing the same hold as they did when you bought them? No matter the reason, it's probably time to refresh your workout clothes and get yourself some fun new sets. You might be surprised to know that your leggings and yoga pants do have a "best by" date and that there are actually perks to keeping your workout wardrobe up to date.

Let's get into it!

How To Know When It's Time To Buy New Workout Clothes

How Long Have You Had Them?
For leggings and yoga pants, you're looking at around 6-8 months for the pairs that you're wearing, working out in, and washing at least once a week. Those workouts and washes take a toll on even the most expensive and premium athletic wear, so don't blame yourself.

How Do They Feel?
When you put your leggings on, do they fit like a glove, or is the elastic starting to wear? The first signs to check for are if there's suddenly a gap in the waistband above your booty. See if you notice the band rolling down all the time, or does the waistband not hug your body anymore and just sort of rest there instead. The elasticity in your yoga pants can really stretch over time, so if you notice that you're constantly pulling them up and adjusting them, you're likely due for a new pair.

How Do They Look?
Leggings seem to wear the most at the inner thigh, so watch out for holes or fraying strings. But more importantly, when you see yourself in the mirror, do you feel confident in them? Do you still like the pattern? Do they get you excited to go to the gym? Do they inspire you to work out?

If they don't make you look and feel your best, it's time to go shopping!

Perks Of Refreshing Your Legging Collection

You'll Feel Inspired

Remember the first day of school, when you'd pick out the perfect outfit the day before, and it was hard to sleep because you were so excited to wear it the next day? New workout clothes have that same effect! A new pair of yoga pants that make you feel fantastic can be that added inspiration you need in the morning to head over to hot yoga.

Improved Performance

A new pair of leggings that are the perfect fit will make you feel unstoppable, not only because you feel confident but because you're not pulling, pinching, and adjusting your bottoms your entire workout.

Feel Rewarded

That's right! You've been putting in the work at the gym to the point where your clothing couldn't even keep up with you. You deserve to reward yourself with new workout clothes that take you through the next several months of workouts or pure stylish comfort. You've earned it!
