I thought of this thread when I read the article.

My almost 4 year old nephew is still doing yoga.

Glad to see nothing has changed around here. Lululemon pants are TOTALLY worth it. I have five pairs (don't hate, it's not like I said yoga is anti-Christian or anything). I also have a couple of pairs of Lucy pants, but I don't like them as much. They ride up and give me camel toe. I have yet to find a pair of Athleta pants that flatter -- even the most relaxed fits are still cut for straighter figures.

I'm still on the search for a short-sleeved shirt (not a tank) that is fitted enough not to flop over during inversions and low-cut enough not to smother me during forward folds. I'll spend $100 for a pair of magic butt pants, but I won't go above $30 for a t-shirt.

Also short sleeve, deep-neck, fitted tees -- perfect for inversions / downward dogs / hiding unseemly pits.

Also, I've found a pair of Athleta I like (Revelation) and am liking my Lucy pants more. They are stretching with my expanding ass better than my Lululemons are. Must stop eating ALL of the cheese.

Update time again...I've kicked up my yoga practice from "half-assed effort at the gym a few times a week" to "daily at a yoga studio." I still have a big booty, but I feel so much better and calmer about it :-). I also have a newfound love for tights and leggings for yoga. I realized that my previous aversion wasn't to how I actually looked, but to how I felt. Since I now feel so much more comfortable in my body, I'm okay with skin-tight apparel that hugs every dip and curve. So now I'm really happy with Athleta. I recently bought the Chatarunga capri and the Revelation capri, and I couldn't be more thrilled. No sagging at the ankles. No drooping during inversions. No more relaxed-fit yoga pants for me (unless I'm lounging around with Netflix, of course).

I like the fit of the Kickbooty, but I can't get over having the Athleta logo right on my buttcrack. All of their other pants put the logo on the waistband...I don't know why Kickbooty is so much lower.

I love the Athleta Chaturangas, too. I have the tight and capri in multiple colors. I like tights if only because they hold everything in....I actually feel slimmer.

Once you've basically sweat buckets, spread your legs, and shown your crotch to god and everybody in bikram yoga, yeah, you tend to become very comfortable with your body, that's for sure.
