Guide Review - Be Present - Exercise Clothing for Pilates and Yoga
Even though I got a little put out by having to go a size up over my usual (I didn't gain weight) to get a fit, I like be present exercise clothing. After all, some of the women at the studio told me that they really like a tighter fit around the bum. Nevertheless, my sense is that these clothes are cut a little smaller than some, but if your ego can take it, there sure are some good choices.
I particularly liked the Bamboo Lounge Pant. If I had a pair, I could just lounge here at my computer, lounge to the studio, lounge to the store - wear the lounge pants all the time. They are very soft, made of bamboo, with a comfy low waist and generous flowing leg.
be present also has a bamboo halter top that is perfect for Pilates. Another top I liked was their long sleeved tee( made from lycocell, fabric made from tree pulp. It is a simple shape and very soft, with extra long sleeves that you can double cuff.
be present is a yoga inspired company, but of course yoga clothes and pilates clothes are very much the same. The yogi influence means that you can find workout clothes with pretty lotuses embroidered on them, Sanskrit symbols and, even the Hindu God, Ganesha.
Perusing the catalog also revealed some nice looking workout clothes for men. I saw a pair of mens workout pants with a dragon on them that looked perfect for Pilates, yoga, or martial arts.
