YogaFit is best known for yoga instructor training programs. But Yoga Fit also has a fairly extensive line of cute Pilates and yoga clothes at what I consider reasonable prices -- which is why I am telling you about them (sorry guys, once again nothing for men).
I do a lot of workout clothes reviews and I truly like the stuff that is up around a hundred dollars. But we're talking exercise clothes, sweat, and the desire for variety here so at least for my wallet, and probably yours, there has to be some compromise.
Over at YogaFit they have pants, tops, hoodies, studio wear and so forth and most, if not all of it, is under fifty dollars and quite a bit under thirty. I also think you might have to be under thirty to wear some of the YogaFit clothes, but that's a matter of taste. I'm over fifty and I did see things I liked.
I received two samples to try. Both have enough quality and visual interest for the price. The first is a Pilates or yoga pant, a fold-over capri ($38.95) with a definitive flare at the calf. The fit is good -- true to size which I appreciate (same for the top) -- and a little flare at the calf balances the hips. There is, however, a little bunching behind the knee even when my leg is straight. I can see it in the big photo on the Yoga Fit site as well. It's not a deal breaker for me but if you are picky you need to know about it.
What I like about the fold-over capri, besides the price tag, is the fabric which does breathe very well. It is some "special type of nylon" with Lycra that they say drys eight times faster than cotton. Cool. Yoga Fit also says on their website that "due to hygienic reasons" you can't get a refund or exchange on this item. They don't say that on on all the clothes so it must be the fabric. I'm not sure what to make of that.
Then there is this cute little burnout tank ($29.95). The burnout effect creates a slightly see through pattern on the bottom half. That might look good on me if my torso was tan, or I had darker skin, instead of it being fish-belly white which produces an odd pale pinkish effect on the bottom part. The bra part is lined so no see-through issue there. The burnout pattern says YogaFit rightside up and upside down in varying fonts so be prepared to advertise.
The spaghetti straps cross in the back, which is attractive, and I like the alternating black and white bands of color. This top is long enough for Pilates and yoga -- thank you very much. But there isn't too much shirt there. It's great for staying cool, and it is easy-wear comfy, but if you have a lot upstairs this top is not going to hold you, hide anything, or otherwise help you out. Overall, good if you are petite, and tan (my projection), and want to stay cool.
The bottom line is that Yoga Fit is making attractive workout clothes at an affordable price -- mostly "yoga girl" stuff, but that's the main market. They also have a fabrics that are environmentally friendly such as the sustainable bamboo or recycled fleece. The sizes seemed about right and they offer s - lg with some xl.
